Jarrett Boykin ready to be a fantasy option after two great weeks (AP)

Week 12 is just a week or two away from the end of the fantasy regular season and now is the time to start getting hot into those postseason matchups. Here are some guys to start or sit this week:

Start ‘Em

Colin Kaepernick (vs. Washington): Washington’s defense has been porous for throwing and running the ball, so Kaepernick should be able to gain points through the air and on the ground in this Week 12 contest. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 12 »

Minnesota's John Carlson will reach for paydirt again against the Packers this week.  (John Carlson/GameDay Gold)

The Week 12 byes for Buffalo, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, and Seattle leave fantasy owners devoid of several key players and looking for depth options to round out their lineups.  This is the final bye week, so if you’re in the playoffs you can have a separate agenda from those needing to win this week.  Look for defenses with good matchups if you need one and handcuff options for your stud skill position players.  Here are some players to target if you need to look to the wire to win a week 12 matchup.

Ben Tate (FOXSports)

Ben Tate, Andre Brown, and Andre Ellington all join the Top 50 this week.  Marshawn Lynch rides a strong Week 10 performance up to No. 4.  Similarly, receivers Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Brown rise to 11 and 23, respectively.  Frank Gore has been rock solid for the 49ers and he just keeps moving up.  Tom Brady and Cam Newton are within four spots of each other on the Board and square off on Monday Night Football.  Jimmy Graham may be surpassed by Rob Gronkowski as the Board’s top TE if Graham continues to play limited snaps; however, Graham is also probably the second most dangerous red zone target in the league after Calvin Johnson.

  1. RB  Jamaal Charles (KC)
  2. WR Calvin Johnson (DET)
  3. QB  Peyton Manning (DEN)
  4. RB  Marshawn Lynch (SEA)
  5. RB  Adrian Peterson (MIN) Continue reading SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 11 »

Ray Rice should be a great option against the Bears in Week 11. (AP)

Time to start planning for the postseason, or making the last push for a playoff spot with the postseason looming for all leagues. Here are some options to start and sit this coming week:

Start ‘Em

Russell Wilson (vs. Minnesota): Wilson is getting Percy Harvin to play along side him this week, which is a huge boost, especially against a struggling Vikings defense. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 11 »

Donald Brown (sportige.com)

Dallas takes their second straight bye this week being of the mandated by the NFL fashion.  Saint Louis takes the high road as the only other bye week team after Tavon Austin blew up benches and waiver wires.  Is he Hester 2.0 or mini-Harvin?  Week 11 produced a thin crop of wire prospects, but with only one more bye week and three games until the majority of playoffs start, maybe you need some help somewhere from 1 to 11 on the scale of desperation.

LAST WEEK

Nick Foles and Case Keenum both delivered multiple touchdowns and Keenum is actually a decent stash if you’re counting on Foles since the Eagles have a Week 12 bye. Continue reading Winning the Wire and Surviving the Bye: Week 11 Fantasy Sleepers »

Eddie Lacy (bleacherreport.com)

The top three hold their spots on this week’s Board while Adrian Peterson jumps Marshawn Lynch to move up to No. 4.  Patriots Rob Gronkowski, Stevan Ridley, and Tom Brady all ascend due to New England finding their rhythm against Pittsburgh.  Rookie running backs Eddie Lacy and Zac Stacy jump to 15 and 20 respectively.  Brandon Marshall jumps to No. 12 and Alshon Jeffery climbs on to the bottom of the board and it sounds like both will be catching passes from Jay Cutler this week.  Players like Danny Amendola and C.J. Spiller are next in line to join the Board after both eclipsed 100 yards in Week 9, but each is difficult to trust.

  1. RB  Jamaal Charles (KC)
  2. WR Calvin Johnson (DET)
  3. QB  Peyton Manning (DEN) Continue reading SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 10 »

After seven touchdown day, Nick Foles a great option going forward. (Michael Perez AP)

With four or five weeks to go in the regular season, Week 10 is do or die for almost every single fantasy team. Here are some players who you should consider starting or sitting this week:

Start ‘Em

Nick Foles (vs.Green Bay): The Philadelphia Eagles will be in this game with Aaron Rodgers out at QB. Foles should be able to throw for a couple scores, especially against a mediocre pass defense that the Packers have. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 10 »
