Fantasy football Player Projections -- Analyzing Week 12
What will Bobby Rainey and Donald Brown do for their respective encores?
The two unheralded backs had huge games last week, grabbing a stranglehold of the starting gigs on the Buccaneers and Colts, respectively. Both have much tougher matchups this week than they did a week ago, however. So what can they do in Week 12? Find that out, as well as the prospects of every other player in our Week 12 projections.
Brees had a bit of a down week by his standards against the Niners, but should get back on track against the struggling Falcons.
Stafford had 346 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Steelers last week. He should thrive against the Bucs, who allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.
It's a bit funny that it's considered a disappointment when Manning throws for 323 yards and one touchdown. He'll make up for it this week.
After being a non-factor against the Broncos last week, Charles should have a monster game on Sunday.
Bush struggled against the Steelers, running for just 31 yards on 12 carries and catching two of his five targets. You're starting him every week, but the Buccaneers have been decent against opposing running backs, allowing the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position.
Forte ran for 83 yards on 18 carries against the Lions and should have a big game against a St. Louis defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Johnson had a huge game last week, catching six passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns. Just another day in the life.
The Giants have been better than average against receivers for fantasy purposes, but you're starting Bryant with extreme confidence every week.
Jackson had 10 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown last week. The Lions allow the second-most fantasy points per game to receivers, so anticipate a big game here.
Gronk should have a very strong game against a Denver defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.
Graham caught six passes for just 41 yards last week. Expect him to atone for that this week.
Cameron caught six passes for 29 yards last week. Start him as usual, despite the fact that his production has really slowed.
Akers made both of his field-goal attempts last week, but is just 14-for-18 on the season.
Prater missed his first field-goal attempt of the season last week. He is 14-for-15 on the year.
Gould went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts last week and is now 19-for-20 on the season.
The Panthers must be started against a Miami team that has allowed the most sacks this season.
All things considered, the Chiefs didn't play that poorly against the Broncos. Get this defense in your lineup against the Chargers.
The Saints have 32 sacks and 16 takeaways on the year, and could be a decent stream against the reeling Falcons.
