2022 Week 12 Fantasy Football Sleepers

🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 These are sleepers. They won’t mimic my rankings 100%. This is chasing upside and typically carries more danger.


POSSIBLE START: Geno Smith, SEA — Russell Wilson’s poor Week 11 efficiency marked the primary time a quarterback hasn’t thrown for a landing or reached 16.7 factors in opposition to the Raiders. In truth, Wilson managed 26.4 within the first matchup with the Raiders, with Davis Mills and Andy Dalton managing to throw two touchdowns of their matchups. Smith has 2+ touchdowns in all however two video games, together with 4 straight heading into the Seahawks’ bye.


POSSIBLE START: Latavius ​​Murray, DEN — As talked about in waivers, this backfield is nearly all Murray’s now, and whereas the offense nonetheless cannot get out of its personal means, bellcow work has worth. Sure, there’s a low ground, however the matchup helps, because the Panthers had been those accountable for Joe Mixon’s insane Week 9. They additionally allowed the likes of Darrell Henderson, Tyler Allgeier and Tevin Coleman — sure, you learn that accurately — to attain 12+ factors.

HAIL MARY START: Raheem Mostert, MIA — How do these working again scores look: 10.0, 11.3, 11.8, 15.3, 22.5, 35.0, 35.3? Those seven got here prior to now 5 video games in opposition to the Texans… simply 5! So, whereas Jeff Wilson is now the lead for the Dolphins, Raheem Mostert has sufficient upside to hit double-digits in the identical sport, identical to Dontrell Hilliard and Kenneth Gainwell did.


POSSIBLE START: Drake London, ATL — With Kyle Pitts finished for the 12 months, Marcus Mariota ought to lean on London 50% of the time. The downside is that it could nonetheless equal simply 11 targets every week on common. Nevertheless, whereas the Commanders have been enjoying higher, they nonetheless present the Tenth-most favorable wideout matchup in Week 12. Brandin Cooks had 6-3-70-0 final week, and whereas that is nothing to journey your self up over, it is nonetheless usable for those who’re skinny at receiver.

POSSIBLE START: Allen Robinson, LAR — Assuming it is John Wolford at quarterback, Robinson has the Cooks/London workforce quantity play going. He additionally has the perfect matchup of the week with the Chiefs forcing opponents to play catch-up whereas additionally being weak to the go. Just like London, it is a dangerous play, however Josh Palmer and Keenan Allen had huge video games final week whereas Christian Kirk did as properly in Week 10, plus Zay Jones managed 10-8-68-0 in that very same sport.

HAIL MARY START: Demarcus Robinson, BAL — As talked about in waivers, possibly Robinson is the reply for the Ravens receivers? Maybe the Jaguars matchup is the reply to what ails Lamar Jackson too? Since Week 6 (5 video games), the Jaguars have given up seven double-digit wideout scores, together with Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell (identical sport), Darius Slayton, Jerry Jeudy, and one other teammate duo in Marquez-Valdes Scantling and Kadarius Toney. In Robinson’s two video games with eight and 9 targets, he has 6-for-64 (9.4 factors) and 9-for-128 (17.3 factors), respectively, so here is hoping Jackson throws just a few more his means.


HAIL MARY START: Foster Moreau, LV — If nobody advised you to start out tight ends in opposition to the Seahawks but, let’s rectify that. Even for those who take out Taysom Hill’s “tight finish” tally in opposition to them, the Seahawks nonetheless allowed 10.4 FPPG to opposing tight ends with the second-most receiving yards given as much as them, plus 5 touchdowns. With Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow gone from the lineup, Moreau has TE1 upside if he can repeat his Week 10 efficiency (3-43-1 appears fairly simple this week).

Top 10 Worst Thanksgiving Side Dishes

It’s a meals week once more… properly, in fact it’s with Thanksgiving right here. And, I’ve already ranked the perfect of Thanksgiving, so now it is time for the worst!

  5. Coleslaw — I really like coleslaw, however it has no place or relevance with Thanksgiving.
  6. Creamed spinach — Is this a dip? It’s not a aspect dish, that is for positive. It’s more like when my canine ​​ate items off a inexperienced toy and puked it up.

  9. Sweet potato casserole — Let’s add one other mashed potato sort however one the place the feel is nearly nauseating and then put marshmallows on prime? This is not cereal or a campfire. Note: I truly like sliced ​​candy potatoes with a syrup/brown sugar glaze (no marshmallows although). Guess that is technically candied yams?
  10. Green bean casserole — How can we make inexperienced beans even worse? Put soup on them! Creamy — typically mushroom — soup stuff and crunchy onions make them higher? Bleh.
