WEEK 12: Which Players Should You START This Week In NFL Fantasy Football?

No Bye weeks! Can I get a Hallelujah?!

There are 3 games on Thanksgiving this week too – it’s like London buses!!


It’s Week 12 and we have a “full” bunch of teams to choose from. I say “full”, but we all know there have been more major injuries in this season so far than the whole of the previous 3!

In Week 11 though, we made some picks to help you pick up decent fantasy points and hopefully make that step towards the NFL Fantasy Football Playoffs. In fact, here are a couple of those:


Kirk Cousins = 25.98 Fantasy Points (333 Total Yards & 3 TDs – Note: Last week I said he’d throw 3 touchdowns!)

Melvin Gordon = 12.00 Fantasy Points (80 Total Yards & 1 TD)

    IntoTheEndZone TeamPlayer NamePositionTeam OpponentReason To Start Them
    Thomas Kirk CousinsQuarterbackWashington Redskinsvs. New York GiantsCaptain Kirk threw for 3 TDs and 333 total yards last week vs. New Orleans. This week he's faces a depleted and underperforming Giants team - he'll throw at least 3 more. I'm rolling with Cousins again - you like that?!
    Neil T.Y. HiltonWide ReceiverIndianapolis Coltsvs. Tennessee Titans The Main attack force that the colts have against a secondary that allowed AB to score 3 Touchdowns last week even in double coverage. Hilton is still a class act.
    Matt ("Stats")Russell WilsonQuarterbackSeattle Seahawks@ San Francisco 49ersI may be a little impartial here but the 49ers are awful, with their only win of the season coming against a decimated Giants team.
    Russel Wilson has been in amazing form despite the offensive lines issues Seattle have.
    The 49ers give up on average 133 yards per game and Wilson ran 80 yards last week against the Falcons. I expect this man to do great things this week!
    CarterMike WallaceWide Receiver Baltimore Ravensvs. Houston TexansHasn't been great all season apart from a big yardage game against the Raiders in week 5, next up a lowly ranked pass defence which has given up 22 receiving touchdowns this season, potential big game in the waiting for Wallace.
