2017 Fantasy Football Week 12 Rankings

on

I spoke a little bit last week about making moves or trades to position your team better for the playoffs. This week I mention starting to pick up and stash defenses for the playoffs. You’ll want to target those juicy matchups against struggling offenses such as the Packers, Giants, etc.

Now this will only work if you have a couple of available spots on your roster now that the bye weeks are over and you no longer need the depth. Of course, if your team is so strong that you would have to drop a top 20-30 position player, then I would not do it. The last thing you want is to give your opponent a good player to start against you.

Jonathan Chan discusses this strategy a little bit as well in his Week 12 Drop List.

2017 Fantasy Football Week 12 Rankings

Below I cover some of the more fantasy relevant injury and statuses worth monitoring throughout the week.

  • John Brown is sidelined with a toe injury and is unlikely to play this week
  • Devonta Freeman is still in the concussion protocol and also unlikely to play this week.
  • Kelvin Benjamin avoided serious injury to his ACL, but he going to struggle to suit up this week
  • Greg Olsen is aiming to return this week from his broken foot. This is a major hit to Ed Dickson‘s value.
