Week 12 Fantasy Sleepers: Bo Scarbrough, Derrius Guice go from waiver pickups to solid 'starts' 1

It’s at all times good when the highest waiver wire pickups line up with weekly sleepers checklist. That signifies that these of you who rushed out to decide up Bo Scarbrough and Derrius Guice (or picked up Guice a couple of weeks in the past, once we first began suggesting it) can slide them proper into your Week 12 fantasy lineup. That makes for simpler simple begin ’em, sit ’em choices on the working again spot, if nothing else.

This week’s sleeper checklist additionally features a quarterback and protection taking part in in opposition to one another, and it really is sensible. Sam Darnold and the Jets offense ought to proceed to rating some factors in opposition to Oakland, however Darnold and firm are additionally inclined sufficient to sacks and turnovers to make the Raiders D/ST worthwhile.

We are also concentrating on the Steelers’ matchup this week in Cincinnati. The Bengals haven’t any particularly sturdy areas of their protection, so we imagine in each the Pittsburgh working sport and probably James Washington (if he is the No. 1 WR for Pittsburgh this week). We additionally return to the Raiders sport on the opposite aspect of the ball, anticipating good issues out of Hunter Renfrow.

And we should not neglect to level out the triumphant return Baker Mayfield makes to the sleepers checklist. He’s been a bust plenty of instances for us this 12 months, so it will likely be refreshing for him when he certainly reads our articles on Saturday night time to discover himself as a sleeper this time round.

Kalen Ballage saved our belief in him per week in the past by discovering the top zone. The identical can’t be stated for James White or Brian Hill, although. Nick Foles upset, too, however he was offset by decide on Sam Darnold and his career-high 4 passing touchdowns. We additionally did not hit on Tre’Quan Smith or Auden Tate, and tight finish was just about a wasteland. We’re undoubtedly due for some constructive regression this week.

Week 12 Fantasy Sleepers: Running backs

Derrius Guice, Redskins vs. Lions (Billy Heyen). The Lions enable extra fantasy factors to working backs than every other workforce, and after an eight-touch return from damage (and a landing), it will make sense for Guice to stand up to 12-15 touches, which is sufficient to have solid fantasy worth on this matchup.

Bo Scarbrough, Lions @ Redskins (Vinnie Iyer). The belief issue is de facto exhausting right here with Matt Patricia’s revolving backfield, however he ran effectively sufficient to be the facility again of alternative in an excellent matchup.

Benny Snell Jr./Trey Edmunds, Steelers @ Bengals (Matt Lutovsky). A few issues have to occur for both of those guys to repay. First, James Conner (shoulder) wants to be out. Second, Snell (knee) wants to be wholesome. If that occurs, he may simply get extra carries that Jaylen Samuels, who will nonetheless be concerned and have extra PPR worth. But given the Bengals horrible run protection, 10-plus carries can yield FLEX worth in customary leagues. If Snell can be out, Edmunds can be in that spot and be price a glance.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Quarterbacks

Jeff Driskel, Lions @ Redskins (Heyen). Driskel has averaged 25.5 fantasy factors per sport (FPPG) throughout the previous two weeks. Now he will get to face a Redskins protection that’s merely dangerous throughout the board. The Lions haven’t got a lot of a working sport (apart from Driskel’s legs), so anticipate him to have loads of weight on his shoulders to produce.

Baker Mayfield, Browns vs. Dolphins (Iyer). He’s again within the weekly beginning dialog because the offense has seemed solid the previous two video games, and this can be a good spot.

Sam Darnold, Jets vs. Raiders (Lutovsky). After an honest exhibiting in Week 10, Darnold broke out in Week 11, throwing for 293 yards and 4 scores in opposition to the Redskins. The Raiders come to city in Week 11, and so they’re tied for seventh in FPPG allowed to QBs. Darnold will come by once more on this spot.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide receivers

Hunter Renfrow, Raiders @ Jets (Heyen). The Jets enable a ton of fantasy factors to receivers, and Renfrow has turned himself right into a solid flooring participant week in and week out. As lengthy as bye weeks are nonetheless going, a participant with Renfrow’s flooring might be helpful.

Allen Lazard, Packers @ 49ers (Iyer). Here’s taking a shot on him being busy on Sunday night time as Green Bay’s possible new No. 2.

James Washington, Steelers @ Bengals (Lutovsky). There isn’t a lot to like concerning the Steelers’ passing sport, however with JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) and Diontae Johnson (concussion) banged up, Washington has an opportunity to proceed his late-season “surge.” In fact, that hasn’t resulted in big stats, however he’s obtained constant targets and is averaging 16 yards per catch. He may very well be the de facto No. 1 receiver this week, and that alone offers him worth in opposition to a foul protection.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight ends

Dallas Goedert, Eagles vs. Seahawks (Heyen). This decide is even higher if Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is out. Goedert is the second-best receiver Philadelphia has behind Zach Ertz in that state of affairs, which means his flooring is as excessive as might be for a No. 2 tight finish.

Cameron Brate, Buccaneers @ Falcons (Iyer). O.J. Howard seems to be prepared to be eliminated from the passing equation, and Jameis Winston rekindled his reference to Brate final week. They can do extra injury collectively in the midst of the sphere.

Benjamin Watson, Patriots vs. Cowboys (Lutovsky). The Cowboys enable the fifth-most FPPG to TEs, and Watson was extra concerned within the Pats offense final week, catching four-of-five targets for 52 yards. Tom Brady may have a harder time getting the ball to his extensive receivers on this matchup, making Watson and James White the most certainly security valves. 

Week 12 Fantasy Sleepers: Defenses

Tennessee Titans vs. Jaguars (Heyen). Nick Foles seemed horrible in Week 11, so I’m completely satisfied to assume it will occur once more. The Titans have sufficient good particular person defenders to imagine of their defensive skills general regardless.

Detroit Lions @ Redskins (Iyer). They preyed on one other NFC East rookie quarterback in Week eight with a scoop-and-score fumble restoration in opposition to Daniel Jones, and Dwayne Haskins ought to make a number of errors right here.

Oakland Raiders vs. Jets (Lutovsky). The Raiders will surrender yards and factors, however they’ll additionally get sacks (5 in every of the previous two video games) and takeaways (at the very least two in every of the previous three video games). Sam Darnold is at all times unfastened with the ball, so this can be a scenario the place each the QB and the protection dealing with him can produce in fantasy.
