It’s the last day of the regular season for some of you, and for others it’s your last chance for a playoff push. Kings Court and I are here to help! Let’s take a look at our Week 12 Fantasy picks.
KC: Russell Wilson. Even without the consistent touchdowns, Wilson racks up points with yards alone. Playing against quite possibly the worst team in the NFL this week (Niners), the Seattle offense should be on the field at all times. Look for a 400+ yard day.
ST: Russell Wilson. I’m also going with the Seattle signal caller. As Kings Court mentioned, he’s got a favorable matchup against San Francisco, and he is turning into an Aaron Rodgers-like player for the Seahawks. The man does it all from pinpoint passes to having an uncanny scrambling ability. Lock him in as the #1 QB in Fantasy this week.
KC: Le’Veon Bell. There isn’t too much to look into here. Bell can pretty easily be named the best running back in the NFL, and the Packers defense shouldn’t slow him down too much. He’s a safe pick every week for around 100 yards and a touchdown.
KC: LeSean McCoy. Sean McDermott surely isn’t too happy with either of his quarterback candidates, as one of them threw five interceptions last week, while the other one was benched randomly. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise for the Bills to emphasize the run this week against a beastly Kansas City secondary. McCoy will probably have a season-high in carries this week.
ST: Le’Veon Bell. Kings Court summed it up pretty well. Bell is unquestionably one of, if not the best back in the NFL. With the Steelers likely blowing open this game early, there’s going to be a lot of touches from Bell the longer this game goes on. His patience in the backfield is something to behold, and he should go for 100+ and a score or two.
ST: Tevin Coleman. I went with Coleman last week, and he didn’t dissapoint me. With Devonta Freeman still out with a concussion, Atlanta is 100% Coleman’s ground game. He should continue to seize the opportunity with the extra touches.
KC: DeAndre Hopkins. Since week 4, Hopkins has had eight touchdowns in only seven games. Lately, he’s been HOT. Averaging just under 125 yards in the past week, Hopkins has no reason to cool down this week against an average Ravens secondary.
KC: Demaryius Thomas. Thomas has a perfect situation this week. Three straight weeks with a touchdown lines up perfectly with his matchup against one of the worst and most underperforming defenses in the league, the Oakland Raiders.
ST: Antonio Brown. I was shocked to find that Brown was only projected to get 12 points this week. With Pittsburgh’s #2 receiver JuJu Smith Schuster out with a hamstring injury, the Steelers only have one target to throw to. I don’t care who the Packers put on him, Brown is poised for one of his best games of the season…so, for that matter, is Martavius Bryant.
ST: Julio Jones. It’s never a bad idea to stick with two of the best offenses in the league, right? After going with Bell and Brown from Pittsburgh, I’ve got Atlanta’s 1-2 punch as well. Jones is a ball hog with some really sticky hands, and he can catch anything within a 5-mile radius. As long as Matt Ryan gives Jones a chance, he can burn any secondary in the league with his speed and quickness.
KC: Leonard Fournette. This season, Fournette has been one of the best rushers in the whole league as a rookie. Apart from his Week 10 return against the Chargers, he has essentially improved almost every single week. Facing a Cardinals’ defense that has held opposing teams to over 80 rushing yards per game will only help his case as well.
ST: Leonard Fournette. Fournette is actually my #2 back this week but I found it easier to match him up with Kings Court in the FLEX. The Cardinals have been awful for the better part of this year, and Fournette has been the bright spot in a terrible Jaguars offense. Assuming Jacksonville doesn’t fall too far behind, Fournette is going to get the bulk of the touches and carry this team to victory. I expect similar numbers to Le’Veon Bell this Sunday.
