- Playoff Run Begins- Fantasy Football’s Aww’s and Naw’s for Week 12 - November 25, 2018
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs Washington Redskins) – A great match-up for Fitz-Magic at home against a Redskins defense that just got torched by Matt Ryan last week. In his six starts this season, Fitzpatrick has averaged over 21 fantasy points in five of them.
Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns (home vs. Atlanta Falcons) – Mayfield has scored at least 21 fantasy points in two of his past three games and is a great bye week replacement if you own quarterbacks like Kirk Cousins and/or DeShawn Watson.
Eli Manning, New York Giants (away vs. San Francisco 49ers) – This is a bit of a reach but all Manning needs is time in the pocket to be successful. This season, Manning has played better away, averaging over 20 fantasy points in his past three road games.
Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (away vs. Chicago Bears) – Life without slot wide receiver Golden Tate is sinking in on Stafford. He could be running for his life if Khalil Mack is healthy enough to play.
Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals (home vs. New Orleans Saints) – Even though the Saints defense gives up a lot of fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, it will be hard starting Dalton without having A.J Green on the field.
Aww Running Backs
Tevin Coleman, Atlanta Falcons (away vs. Cleveland Browns) – The Browns have allowed nine total touchdowns to running backs in their past four games and allow the third-most fantasy points to the position for the season. Continue to ride Coleman till he cools off.
Dion Lewis, Tennessee Titans (home vs. New England Patriots) – After watching Lewis play last week in Dallas, it is clear that he is the lead back for the Titans. I love his matchup at home against his former team so definitely expect a lot of carries and catches.
Matt Breida, San Francisco 49ers (home vs. New York Giants) – With fellow running back Raheem Mostert out for the year with a broken arm, Breida should get the bulk of the carries in a favorable matchup at home.
Naw Running Backs
Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars (away vs. Indianapolis Colts) – The Jaguars are going to slowly ease Fournette back like the Vikings did with Dalvin Cook. He will probably be limited in touches this weekend with the acquisition of Carlos Hyde taking away some of his carries.
Doug Martin, Oakland Raiders (home vs. Los Angeles Chargers) – Martin won’t get as many carries playing from behind to a high powered offense like the Chargers.
Aww Wide Receivers
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Green Bay Packers (home vs. Miami Dolphins) – Valdes-Scantling has become a favorite deep target for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Dolphins secondary is not good so he should continue to get looks down the field.
Robby Anderson, New York Jets (home vs. Buffalo Bills) – Anderson gets his favorite quarterback back this weekend in Josh McCown, who definitely is not afraid to throw the deep ball.
Tyrell Williams, Los Angeles Chargers (away vs. Oakland Raiders) – Williams may not catch a lot of passes but he is a touchdown magnet; scoring in three straight games. The Raiders defense is horrific that Williams is worth a flex play.
Naw Wide Receivers
T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts (home vs. Jacksonville Jaguars) – The Jaguars defense is no longer scary so if you don’t have other options, you can still start Hilton. Just do not expect great fantasy production with Jalen Ramsey or A.J. Bouye guarding him.
Sammy Watkins, Kansas City Chiefs (home vs. Arizona Cardinals) – Watkins is dealing with a nagging foot injury and will be covered by All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. I’ll pass.
Aww Tight Ends
O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs. Washington Redskins) – The Redskins defense has only allowed three touchdowns to tight ends this season, but who cares! You’re starting Howard, who’s been on fire with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts (home vs. Jacksonville Jaguars) – What a welcome back party for Doyle who caught six passes for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders in Week eight. His matchup against the Jaguars may not be the best but he’s worth a start.
Naw Tight Ends
Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons (away vs. Cleveland Browns) – Even though the Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce torched the Browns defense with seven catches, 99 yards and a touchdown does not mean Hooper will get similar numbers.
Aww Team Defense
Kansas City Chiefs (home vs. Arizona Cardinals) – The Chiefs defense was not spectacular on the road against the Browns but a home game against Cardinals rookie quarterback Josh Rosen is definitely worth starting in fantasy.
New York Jets (home vs. Buffalo Bills) – Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen has been testing his elbow this week throwing the football but not sure if he’s going to start this weekend. Regardless of who starts, you need to start the Jets.
Naw Team Defense
Jacksonville Jaguars (away vs. Indianapolis Colts) – They are not as tough of a defense as last year and the Colts quick passing game will make it tough.
