2022 Week 12 Fantasy Football Sleepers
🚨 ATTENTION 🚨 These are sleepers. They will not mimic my rankings 100%. This is chasing higher and often comes with more risk.
POSSIBLE START: Geno Smith, MAR — Russell Wilson’s poor performance in Week 11 marked the first time a quarterback hasn’t thrown for a touchdown or scored 16.7 points against the Raiders. In fact, Wilson managed 26.4 in the first meeting with the Raiders, with Davis Mills and Andy Dalton managing to throw two touchdowns in their meeting. Smith has 2+ TDs in all but two games, including four in a row before the Seahawks bye.
POSSIBLE START: Latavius Murray, DEN — As mentioned in the waivers, this backfield is almost all Murray’s now, and while the offense still can’t get out of its own way, the button work has value. Sure, there’s a low floor, but the matchup helps, since the Panthers were the ones responsible for Joe Mixon’s Week 9 madness. They also allowed Darrell Henderson, Tyler Allgeier and Tevin Coleman — yes, you read that correctly — to get more than 12 points.
BEGINNING OF THE HAIL MARIA: Raheem Mostert, MIA — What do these runners’ scores look like: 10.0, 11.3, 11.8, 15.3, 22.5, 35.0, 35.3? Those seven have come in the last five games against the Texans…just five! So while Jeff Wilson is now the Dolphins’ leader, Raheem Mostert has enough of a lead to reach double digits in the same game, just as Dontrell Hilliard and Kenneth Gainwell did.
THE WIDE RECEIVER
POSSIBLE START: Drake London, ATL — With Kyle Pitts finished for the year, Marcus Mariota should lean on London 50% of the time. The problem is that he would still equate to only 11 targets per week on average. However, while the Commanders have been playing better, they still provide the 10th most favorable matchup in Week 12. Brandin Cooks was 6-3-70-0 last week, and while that’s nothing you trip over , it is still usable. if you are thin on the receiver.
POSSIBLE START: Allen Robinson, LAR — Assuming it’s John Wolford at quarterback, Robinson has the Cooks/London team’s volume game going. He also has the best matchup of the week with the Chiefs, forcing opponents to catch up while also being vulnerable to the pass. Like London, it’s a risky play, but Josh Palmer and Keenan Allen had great games last week, while Christian Kirk did so in Week 10, plus Zay Jones went 10-8-68-0 in that same game. .
BEGINNING OF THE HAIL MARIA: Demarcus Robinson, BAL — As mentioned in the waivers, perhaps Robinson is the answer for the Ravens’ receivers? Perhaps the Jaguars matchup is the answer to what ails Lamar Jackson as well? Since Week 6 (five games), the Jaguars have given up seven double-digit open scores, including Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell (same game), Darius Slayton, Jerry Jeudy and another teammate duo in Marquez-Valdes Scantling and Kadarius. toney. In Robinson’s two games with eight and nine goals, he’s 6-of-64 (9.4 points) and 9-of-128 (17.3 points), respectively, so expect Jackson to throw a few more in his direction.
BEGINNING OF THE AVE MARIA: Foster Moreau, LV — If nobody told you to start as tight ends against the Seahawks, let’s rectify that. Even if you remove Taysom Hill’s “tight end” tally against them, the Seahawks still allow 10.4 FPPG to opposing tight ends with the second-most receiving yards, plus five touchdowns. With Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow out of the lineup, Moreau has the edge in TE1 if he can repeat his Week 10 performance (3-43-1 looks pretty easy this week).
Have fun with the rankings!
The 10 Worst Thanksgiving Side Dishes
It’s food week again…well of course it’s with Thanksgiving here. And I’ve already ranked the best of Thanksgiving, so now it’s time for the worst!
- Ambrosia Salad “I don’t know what the unicorn fairy banished to hell thought of this, but this fruit is fuel for nightmares.
- salad, salad – A salad? Who’s trying to eat healthy on Thanksgiving or messing around with a salad to start? Only go to the good stuff!
- premade vegetable tray — The laziest side dish — that is, your lame friend who spent five minutes and dollars bringing in his “party contribution”… who doesn’t even eat while devouring all the good stuff — and you’ve got this.
- Soup “Like the salad, why are we wasting time on pre-meal items?” Nobody is sick. Keep your watery food away on Thanksgiving!
- Cabbage salad — I love coleslaw, but it has no place or relevance with Thanksgiving.
- Spinach cream – Is this a dip? It’s not a side dish, that’s for sure. It’s more like when my dog ate pieces of a green toy and vomited it up.
- Cranberry sauce — This will get the most hate because I know many who love this red, jelly-like “fruit” glob.
- Corn – Corn on the cob? Of course. But that’s one side of the grill/cookout. Chunks of corn, or worse…in a pudding…it’s disgusting.
- Sweet Potato Stew “Shall we add another type of mashed potato but one where the texture is almost nauseating and then put marshmallows on top?” This is not cereal or a campfire. Note: I actually like sliced sweet potatoes with a brown sugar/syrup glaze (no marshmallows though). I guess they’re technically candied sweet potatoes?
- Green Bean Casserole — How can we make green beans even worse? Put them soup! Do creamy soups, often mushroom, and crispy onions make them better? Bleh.
