Fantasy Football Tips: Gettin’ It In, Week 12
Manning and Giants Expected to Score Big.
Thursday night was wild in the NFC ‘Least.’ The Eagles got their taints handed to them. The Cowboys lost both the game to the Panthers and QB Tony Romo to another injury to his clavicle. Everything is lining up for the Giants and Eli Manning to put a stranglehold on the division, which is why we are more nervous than a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
Michael Fabiano, Senior Fantasy Analyst for Nfl.com and the NFL Network expects Eli Manning to score big fantasy points this weekend against Washington. We hope the Giants get an easy win against Cousins and the team that needs a new name. Fabiano week 12 advice for the weekend also include:
Eli Manning vs. Washington: Eli Manning is having the strong season many expected from him, albeit with some volatility. The Giants starter currently ranks inside the top 10 in FanDuel points scored for the season. Washington ranks 22nd in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks and carries a 20-6 touchdown to interception ratio. Complicating matters will be that Washington lost Chris Culliver for the season to a torn ACL. This is a strong week for the Eli Manning/Odell Beckham connection to go off.
Brian Hoyer vs. The Saints: We know, the Saints defense has been bad and QBs light up the Black and Gold, but it’s Brian Hoyer. The Texans defense has stabilized and besides De’Andre Hopkins, Houston’s offense has been as erratic as Johnny Manziel’s starting status. In our opinion, look elsewhere for your QB.
Carson Palmer vs. the 49ers, Ryan Tannehill vs. the Jets.
Chris Ivory vs. the Dolphins: We expect the Dolphins to beat the Jets and one of the reasons why will be the lack of Jets running game. Ivory has not been the fantasy stud he was earlier in the year before missing time due with a sore hamstring and groin.
Chris Johnson vs. the 49ers: This is a solid choice, the Niners run defense is dreadful.
Larry Fitzgerald vs. the 49ers: Fitzgerald has become a legend again, but if you are in TD league, John Brown might be the wiser choice.
Allen Robinson vs. the Chargers: We expect a high scoring game and both Robinson and Hurns will get a significant number of targets from QB Blake Bortles.
