The NFL is entering Week 12. This list will go over the 10 best matchups for fantasy football owners to exploit.
Week 11 has come and gone. It ended with a thriller in Seattle between the Falcons and Saints. We saw some huge fantasy performances from various players. None were bigger than the Thursday night performance by Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The biggest positive note of Week 11 was injuries. Outside of Chris Thompson of the Washington Redskins, no big name fantasy player was hurt. This may have been the first week of the season that could be said. Injuries are always terrible but this season seems to be taking the cake.
Fantasy owners can look on to Week 12 with excitement. There are three Thursday games on Thanksgiving. We also finally are done with bye weeks. No more worrying weekly about who to take out of your lineup.
The playoff race is also heating up. The AFC playoff picture is a mess, with almost every team still in the hunt. The NFC playoffs are lacking clarity as well but the division races are better than in the AFC.
There are plenty of games that will look enticing to fantasy owners. The Seahawks travel to San Francisco which could be big points for that offense. Miami is going to New England, a nightmare for the reeling Dolphins. My favorite game of the week could provide some fireworks too. The Saints and Rams play in Los Angeles in a matchup of two of the hottest teams in the NFL.
