- Going Against The Grain – Fantasy Football Aww’s And Naw’s Week 12 - November 22, 2019
Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns (home vs Carolina Panthers) – The Panthers defense is awful and Mayfield won’t throw three interceptions this week.
Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (home vs. New York Jets) – If Allen continues to run like he’s Michael Vick Jr, he will be a nice sleeper pick at home against a bad Jets defense.
Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles (away vs. Dallas Cowboys) – After what the Cowboys did at home against Drew Brees and the Saints, Wentz shouldn’t do much better.
Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams (away vs. Chicago Bears) – I see more Todd Gurley running the ball than Goff airing it out in the freezing cold of Chicago.
Aww Running Backs
Tarik Cohen, Chicago Bears (home vs. Los Angeles Rams) – Cohen has become a version of Alvin Kamara/Christian McCaffrey in the past few weeks. The Rams defense come into this game having allowed three receiving touchdowns to a running back in their past four games.
Jaylen Samuels, Pittsburgh Steelers (away vs. Oakland Raiders) – Rumors are saying that Samuels maybe on a timeshare with Steven Ridley but I am not buying it. I think he will get 15-18 carries against the Raiders and a possible touchdown.
Naw Running Backs
Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs (home vs. Baltimore Ravens) – The Chiefs re-signed Charcandrick West to take some pressure off Ware, who can also lose carries to him as well as Damien Williams. It is a tough matchup anyway against the Ravens, who allow the fewest Fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Josh Adams, Philadelphia Eagles (away vs. Dallas Cowboys) – It’s now a committee again with Corey Clement and Darren Sproles cutting into his yardage and scoring potential. The Cowboys shut down Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram last week, so this matchup is not good for Adams.
Aww Wide Receivers
Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs. New Orleans Saints) – With DeSean Jackson possibly out this weekend, Godwin as well as Adam Humphries are primed for another good game. In Week 13 against the Panthers, Godwin had five catches for 101 yards and a touchdown on six targets, and Humphries had seven catches for 61 yards on nine targets.
Zay Jones, Buffalo Bills (home vs. New York Jets) – I did not think I would have a Buffalo Bills wide receiver as an “Aww” but I like Jones this week against the Jets. He is the clear #1 now with Kelvin Benjamin cut. He had eight catches for 93 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in the first game against the Jets and hopefully he will duplicate those numbers.
Naw Wide Receivers
Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans (home vs. Jacksonville Jaguars) – Here’s an interesting fact – Davis hasn’t fared well against Jacksonville in three career meetings with a combined three catches for 38 yards and no touchdowns over that span. The Jaguars defense has not been great, but they do lead the NFL with the fewest touchdowns allowed to wide receivers.
Sterling Shepard, New York Giants (away vs. Washington Redskins) – Quarterback Eli Manning is just not getting him the ball enough to consider Shepard as a fantasy starter this week.
Aww Tight Ends
Jared Cook, Oakland Raiders (home vs. Pittsburgh Steelers) – Cook has been getting more looks from quarterback Derek Carr recently and should be receiving plenty of targets, especially garbage production against the Steelers.
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins (home vs. New York Giants) – New starting quarterback Mark Sanchez is still learning the playbook so it looks like Reed will get plenty of dump offs.
Naw Tight Ends
Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons (away vs. Green Bay Packers) – Hooper may have a decent game but quarterback Matt Ryan will throw more to his wide receivers due to the bad secondary of the Packers.
Aww Team Defense
New York Giants (away vs. Washington Redskins) – As long as Mark Sanchez is starting at quarterback, the Giants are a good sleeper defense that can cause some turnovers.
Naw Team Defense
Pittsburgh Steelers (away vs. Oakland Raiders) – After watching the Raiders score 30 points at home against the Chiefs, they should be able to score multiple touchdowns against the Steelers.
