    Travis Kelce Nov 26 10:00am ET
    Travis Kelce

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught three touchdowns last week against the Chargers, bringing his total this season to 11, which has already tied his career high. After personnel changes in the offseason, Kelce is now the unquestioned top option in this Chiefs offense, and he's averaging 9.4 targets per game. Kelce is a must-start regardless of matchup, though it's worth pointing out that the Rams allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends this year.

    Harrison Butker Nov 26 10:00am ET
    Harrison Butker

    Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is having arguably the worst season of his NFL career, making just 72.7% of his field goal attempts. But he looked sharp last week, going 3-for-3 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points in a win over the Chargers. The nature of this Chiefs offense puts Butker in a position to take a large number of kicks each week, even if most of them are extra points. He should be considered a high-upside kicker play every game. Play him against the Rams in Week 12.

    Patrick Mahomes Nov 26 9:40am ET
    Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown for seven touchdowns in the past two games plus has five games in a row of over 300 passing yards. In Week 12, he'll look to keep that streak alive against the Rams. Mahomes has faced the Rams just once in his career, passing for 478 yards and six touchdowns, but that was in a game where both teams were on top of their game. This Rams team isn't as competitive, so Mahomes shouldn't need to do too much in this one, though he's an obvious must-start and a top-five play this week. The Rams do allow the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, but Mahomes is matchup-proof.

    Josh Palmer Nov 26 1:50am ET
    Josh Palmer

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Joshua Palmer had his best showing of the season in Week 11 and will look to repeat his success in another enticing matchup in Week 12. Palmer and the Chargers will travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals, who are allowing over 245 passing yards and almost 27 points per game to opposing teams. With Mike Williams (ankle) ruled out for Sunday's contest, Palmer could again see double-digit targets and should be considered a solid fantasy WR2 despite sharing the field with a healthy Keenan Allen.

    Austin Ekeler Nov 26 1:40am ET
    Austin Ekeler

    Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler should have no issues continuing his dominant season in Week 12 against an Arizona Cardinals defense that is allowing almost 27 points per game. Ekeler currently has 11 touchdowns this year and will have an excellent opportunity to find the end zone yet again on Sunday. With Keenan Allen returning to the lineup last week, Ekeler saw a season-low of two targets, so fantasy managers may want to temper their expectations for his receiving numbers going forward. Still, he should be viewed as a top-three fantasy play with massive upside every week.

    Eddy Pineiro Nov 26 1:20am ET
    Eddy Pineiro

    Carolina Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro has been steady as of late and will look to continue his success in a Week 12 matchup against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos currently surrender the second-fewest points in the league, though, so field goals may be tough to come by on Sunday. Carolina's offense could struggle to move the ball against Denver's stingy defense, making Pineiro an uninteresting option this week.

    From RotoBaller

    Justin Herbert Nov 26 1:20am ET
    Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert finished as a top-10 fantasy QB last week and will have another great opportunity to do so in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona has allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Even with Mike Williams (ankle) officially ruled out, Herbert should be able to get the job done in this soft matchup with Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer, Gerald Everett, and Austin Ekeler at his disposal. He should be fired up in all leagues as a top option at the quarterback position on Sunday.

    Tommy Tremble Nov 26 1:10am ET
    Tommy Tremble

    Carolina Panthers tight end Tommy Tremble was not targeted in the passing game last week but could take on a larger role in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Ian Thomas (illness) is currently listed as questionable after missing practice on both Thursday and Friday. Tremble has been mostly ineffective for fantasy this season, though, and with Sam Darnold making his first start of 2022 on Sunday, there are simply too many question marks surrounding Carolina's offense to consider the second-year tight end a legitimate option. Tremble should remain on waiver wires in all redraft leagues.

    From RotoBaller

    Ian Thomas Nov 26 1:00am ET
    Ian Thomas

    Carolina Panthers tight end Ian Thomas (illness) is officially questionable to play in Week 12 after missing two straight practices with an illness. If Thomas is unable to suit up against the Denver Broncos, Tommy Tremble would be expected to see additional snaps. For fantasy purposes, though, all Carolina tight ends should remain on waiver wires regardless of health.

    D'Onta Foreman Nov 26 12:50am ET
    D'Onta Foreman

    Carolina Panthers running back D'Onta Foreman struggled to get things going last week and will have another difficult test in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos' defense has limited opponents to just over 300 total yards and 17 points per game this season. Foreman should continue to see the majority of touches out of Carolina's backfield, but he's difficult to trust with most of his fantasy production this year coming in two games against the Atlanta Falcons. It also remains to be seen how the 2022 Panthers' offense looks with Sam Darnold under center, making Foreman a risky flex option on Sunday.

    From RotoBaller

    D.J. Moore Nov 26 12:50am ET
    D.J. Moore

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver DJ Moore has posted his best fantasy production over the past two seasons with Sam Darnold at quarterback and will get a chance to repeat this success on Sunday when the team faces off against the Denver Broncos. Although Darnold should provide a boost for Moore's fantasy value, the Broncos have allowed the fewest PPR fantasy points to wide receivers this season, making it hard to rely on him in Week 12. Fantasy managers may want to wait-and-see before deploying Moore in starting lineups again, and he should be viewed as just a low-end flex play for now.

    From RotoBaller

    Sam Darnold Nov 26 12:40am ET
    Sam Darnold

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold will make his first start of the 2022 campaign in a Week 12 matchup with the Denver Broncos. Darnold was named the starter earlier in the week after another underwhelming performance from Baker Mayfield last Sunday. It's unclear at this point if PJ Walker (ankle) will regain QB1 duties when healthy, but Darnold will need to exceed expectations to become fantasy relevant in the meantime. The Broncos have been the most difficult opponent for fantasy quarterbacks this season, making Darnold an extremely risky low-end QB2 in superflex and two-quarterback formats this week.

    Noah Fant Nov 26 12:30am ET
    Noah Fant

    Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant could be a decent streamer this week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Fant has had a disappointing year, averaging three receptions and 30 yards per game. Although Fant is coming off a 34-yard performance in Week 10, he does have a great matchup on paper this week. The Raiders allow the ninth most fantasy points to tight ends this year, and Geno Smith may look Fant's way more often than usual this week. The tight end position is very shallow this year, and Fant could be a decent streamer against a weak Las Vegas defense.

    Brandon McManus Nov 26 12:30am ET
    Brandon McManus

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus had one of his better games of the season in the Week 11 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, making three of his four field-goal attempts and his lone extra point. It was the fifth time this year that he's made three field goals in a single game, but the last time it had happened before last Sunday was in Week 6. McManus is tied for 17th at his position in overall fantasy points heading into a Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers on the road. He's attempted the fourth-most field goals (24) in the league, but his 12 extra-point attempts are tied for 29th. And in a Broncos offense that is scoring an NFL-low 14.7 points per game, fantasy managers should be avoiding McManus again this weekend.

    From RotoBaller

    Sam Darnold Nov 26 12:30am ET
    Sam Darnold

    The Denver Broncos defense may only be tied for 23rd in the NFL in overall fantasy points through 11 weeks, but they set up as a top-five defensive unit in fantasy in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers will be giving quarterback Sam Darnold his first start of the season, and they have allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to team defenses in 2022. Denver's D has been one of the best all year, allowing the second-fewest points per game (17.1) and the third-fewest total yards per game (302.1), while Carolina's offense is scoring just 18.8 points per game. They've been turnover-prone, too, giving the ball away 15 times, and having Darnold under center could make things worse. The Broncos defense/special teams unit needs to be started this Sunday.

    Kenneth Walker III Nov 26 12:20am ET
    Kenneth Walker III

    Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III is a must-start option for Week 12 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The rookie running back has been on an absolute tear, scoring seven touchdowns over the last six games. The Seahawks' last game, against the Buccaneers, was a tough matchup for Walker on the ground, only finishing with 17 rushing yards. The huge positive from that matchup was Walker finished with six receptions for 55 yards proving that he has a very safe floor, especially in PPR formats. The Raiders have not been great at stopping the run, letting Jonathan Taylor rush for 147 yards just two weeks ago. Confidently fire up Walker as a mid-range RB1 this week.

    From RotoBaller

    D.K. Metcalf Nov 26 12:20am ET
    D.K. Metcalf

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has a decent matchup this week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Over the past three games, Metcalf is averaging 5.6 receptions and 54 yards and has found the endzone twice. The 24-year-old has been a bit inconsistent this year but started getting it going over the past three games after having just three receptions in Weeks 6-7 combined. Metcalf will look to continue his solid play this week and should be treated as a mid-range WR2 for Week 12.

    From RotoBaller

    Tyler Lockett Nov 26 12:20am ET
    Tyler Lockett

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has a good matchup this week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Lockett has been putting together a nice fantasy season (like he does every year) and will look to keep up the consistency in Week 12. The 30-year-old scored a touchdown in three straight games and went for over 60 receiving yards in two. He boasts a 23% target share this year and is the clear second option on the offense, only behind DK Metcalf. Lockett should be treated as a mid-range WR2 for Week 12 against Las Vegas.

    From RotoBaller

    Geno Smith Nov 26 12:20am ET
    Geno Smith

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith has a great matchup in Week 12 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Geno Smith has taken the NFL by storm, blowing all expectations out of the water. The 32-year-old has thrown multiple touchdowns in four straight games and is averaging 243 passing yards-per-game in that span. The Raiders are currently allowing the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks this year, and Smith can have an absolute field day against this weak pass defense. Confidently fire up Smith as a high-end QB2 this week.

    From RotoBaller

    Trevor Siemian Nov 25 11:40pm ET
    Trevor Siemian

    The New York Jets defense is an excellent fantasy option in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. With starting quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) shaping up as a game-time decision for Week 12, Trevor Siemian could be forced to start, making the Jets defense even more appealing. Regardless of who starts though, the Jets defense has been outstanding this season, recording 32 sacks and 11 interceptions all while ranking fourth in the league in pressure rate. Meanwhile, the Bears have allowed the most sacks in the league. The Jets have seven top-12 fantasy weeks in a row on defense, and should make it eight straight after Sunday's game.
