2022 Week 12 Fantasy Football Lies

🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 These are sleepers. They will not mimic my rankings 100%. This is chasing upwards and often involves more risk.


POSSIBLE START: Geno Smith, SEA – Russell Wilson’s poor performance in Week 11 marked the first time a quarterback failed to throw for a touchdown or score 16.7 points against the Raiders. In fact, Wilson went for 26.4 in the first matchup with the Raiders, with Davis Mills and Andy Dalton managing to throw two touchdowns in their matchups. Smith has 2+ touchdowns in all but two games, including four straight en route to the Seahawks’ bye.


POSSIBLE BEGINNING: Latavius ​​Murray, DEN – As stated in waivers, this backfield is now almost all Murray’s, and while the attack still can’t get out of the way, work from the belcow has value. Sure, there’s a low floor, but the matchup helps, as the Panthers were the ones responsible for Joe Mixon’s insane Week 9. They also dropped Darrell Henderson, Tyler Allgeier, and Tevin Coleman – yes, you read that right – to score 12 + points.

HAIL MARIA BEGIN: Raheem Mostert, MIA — What do these descending scores look like: 10.0, 11.3, 11.8, 15.3, 22.5, 35.0, 35.3? Those seven came in the last five games against the Texans…just five! So while Jeff Wilson now leads the Dolphins, Raheem Mostert has enough advantage to hit double digits in the same game, as do Dontrell Hilliard and Kenneth Gainwell.


POSSIBLE START: Drake London, ATL — With Kyle Pitts ready for the year, Marcus Mariota should lean on London 50% of the time. The problem is that this would still average only 11 goals per week. Nevertheless, even though the Commanders are playing better, they still offer the 10th most favorable wideout matchup in Week 12. Brandin Cooks had 6-3-70-0 last week, and while that’s nothing to trip over, it’s still usable if you are thin on the receiver.

POSSIBLE BEGINNING: Allen Robinson, LAR – Assuming it’s John Wolford at quarterback, Robinson has the Cooks/London team’s volume play going. He also has the best game of the week with the Chiefs forcing opponents to catch up while also being vulnerable on the pass. Like London, it’s a risky game, but Josh Palmer and Keenan Allen played big games last week, while Christian Kirk also did it in Week 10, plus Zay Jones managed to go 10-8-68-0 in that same game.

HAIL MARIA BEGINNING: Demarcus Robinson, BAL – As stated in waivers, maybe Robinson is the answer for the Ravens receivers? Perhaps the Jaguars matchup is the answer to whatever ails Lamar Jackson? Since Week 6 (five games), the Jaguars have given up seven double-digit wideout 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-for-64 (9.4 points) and 9-for-128 (17.3 points) respectively, so hopefully Jackson throws a few more his way.


HAIL MARIA BEGINNING: Foster Moreau, LV – If no one has told you to start tight against the Seahawks, let’s set that right. Even if you knock out Taysom Hill’s “tight end” against them, the Seahawks still allow 10.4 FPPG to opposing tight ends with the second most receiving yards given to them, plus five touchdowns. With Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow gone from the lineup, Moreau will have TE1 rocked if he can repeat his week 10 performance (3-43-1 seems pretty easy this week).

Fun with rankings!
Top 10 Worst Thanksgiving Side Dishes

It’s another food week… well, of course it’s Thanksgiving here. And I’ve already ranked the best of Thanksgiving, so now it’s time for the worst!

  1. Ambrosia Salad — I don’t know what unicorn fairy banished to hell thought of this, but this fruit is fuel for nightmares.
  2. Salad, salad – A salad? Who’s trying to eat healthy on Thanksgiving or want to waste time with a salad to start? Just go to the good stuff!
  3. Ready-made vegetable dish – Laziest side dish – aka, your lame friend who spent five minutes and dollars bringing their “contribution to the party” … which they don’t even eat while gobbling up all the goodness – and you’ve got this.
  4. soup – Like salad, why do we waste time with pre-meal items. Nobody is sick. Keep Your Water Foods Away From Thanksgiving!
  5. Coleslaw – I like coleslaw, but it has no place or relevance on Thanksgiving.
  6. Creamy Spinach – Is this a dip? It’s not a side dish, that’s for sure. It’s more like my dog ​​ate pieces of a green toy and vomited it up.
  7. Cranberrysauce – This will get the most hate because I know many who absolutely love this red, Jell-O like, glop of “fruit”.

  8. Maize — Corn cobs? Secure. But that’s one side of grilling/cooking. Corn chunks, or worse… in a pudding… is gross.
  9. Sweet potato casserole — Let’s add another kind of mashed potato, but one whose texture is almost nauseating and then top it with marshmallows? This isn’t cereal or a campfire. Note: I actually like sliced ​​sweet potatoes with a syrup/brown sugar glaze (but no marshmallows). Do you think those are technically candied yams?
  10. Green bean dish — How can we make green beans even worse? Put soup on it! Creamy – often mushroom soup – things and crispy onions make them better? Meh.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Projections

🚨 HEAD UP 🚨 These may differ from my rankings, and my ranks are the order in which I would start players outside the added context, such as “Need the highest benefit, even if it’s risky.” Also based on 4-point TDs for QB, 6-point rest and Half-PPR
