Fantasy Football Week 12: Start’em / Sit’em
Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports
Eric Decker, MIA (74%, 11) – For some reason Decker still isn’t started universally despite scoring a TD in all but one game this season and putting up ten plus fantasy points in every start. Regardless of who plays QB for the Jets, they look for Decker in the red zone.
Odell Beckham Jr, @WAS (67%, 13) – I have no idea why a player who is 2nd in the league in targets behind just Antonio Brown is only being started in 67% of leagues this week, but it’s just flat out wrong. Beckham is facing a Skins D that has given up the 4th most points to opposing WRs.
Sammy Watkins, @KC (59%, 9) – He hasn’t done much since his 29-point fantasy game in week 9, but is certainly talented enough to break out at any time. Bills HC Rex Ryan mentioned this week that Watkins needs more targets and he is facing the Chiefs who have given up the most fantasy points to opposing WRs. If you own him, get Watkins in your lineup this week.

Stevie Johnson, @JAX (48%, 10) – Has averaged nine targets and seven catches per game since Keenan Allen was injured. This should be a high-scoring match-up and Johnson could see even more than his usual nine targets.
Kamar Aiken, @CLE (26%, 9) – After the loss of Steve Smith Sr, Aiken is the Ravens clear-cut #1 WR. His potential isn’t as high with Matt Schaub at QB, but he should still lead the team in targets and easily surpass nine fantasy points.
Marquess Wilson, @GB (2%, 5) – With Martellus Bennet and Eddie Royal out with injuries and Alshon Jeffery questionable to play this week, Wilson should be at worst the Bears #2 target. Wilson has shown flashes of big play potential and should easily double his projected point total Thursday.
