Week Twelve: Position Picks Breakdown

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed family, food, and football like me. I still can’t believe how bad the Philadelphia Eagles looked against the Lions on Thanksgiving day, yikes! It’s time to look a few guys that I like in Week 12.

QBs

Brian Hoyer vs. N.O. Saints

I’m looking at Hoyer as a great value play ($10,000) especially considering he’s facing the Saints 31st-ranked pass defense. They allow 293 yards per game and have surrendered 28 passing TDs. I know the Saints made a change at defensive coordinator, but it’s hard to expect much to change this late in the season.

RBs

Buck Allen vs. Cleveland Browns 

Allen becomes the lead back in Baltimore with Justin Forest out for the rest of the season with a broken arm. Allen will get his 1st start against Cleveland who’s last in the NFL at stopping the run.

Chris Ivory vs. Miami Dolphins 

Ivory has struggled lately, therefore the Dolphins are just what the doctor ordered. Miami comes in with the 31st-ranked run defense and they are fresh off of giving up 167 yards on the ground to Dallas last week. Look for Ivory to get plenty of opportunities to get the Jets back to playing winning football.

WRs

DeAndre Hopkins vs. N.O. Saints 

Hopkins is a must play against any defense let alone the Saints. Enough said!

TEs

Delanie Walker vs. Oakland Raiders 

TEs have feasted on the Raiders like a Thanksgiving dinner and Walker may go for multiple plates. Walker is the number one target for Tennessee in the passing game. He had 8 receptions, 109 yards and two TDs on 10 targets versus Jacksonville last week.

Defense

Arizona vs. S.F. 

Arizona boasts the number four-ranked defense in yards allowed, while San Francisco has struggled mightily on offense this year. Blaine Gabbert has been better than Colin Kaepernick, however these Cardinals will be too much for the 49ers offense to handle.

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
