Fantasy Football Week 12 Game-by-Game Recap and Analysis


Kansas City Chiefs @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tyr Hill Hill was the story of Week 12 when he scored Seventh most PPR points in a game In the history of fantasy football. He finished with a 15-13-269-3 line, becoming the first receiver to record 200 receiving yards in a game this year, and he did it until the end of the first quarter, as the Bucs inexplicably man. Continued to play – humans without security help. Hill was the first WR since Lee Evans in 2006 to record 200 yards in a quarter and the first-half receiving yardage since 1991. He scored 47 goals in the last three games, leaving Hill no longer number one. 1 fantasy WR on year by a significant margin.

It was a favorable matchup on paper with Tampa Bay that was far weaker than most recent passes, but Patrick Mahomes surpassed expectations by throwing for the first half yardage (359) since 2004. He has 462 passing yards and a game 32: 2 TD: ratio on the year, making him a heavy favorite to win another MVP award. Since 2018, the Mahomes have three games with 300 yards passing before halftime, more than the rest of the NFL combined (two). And to think – he missed Mekol Hardman for a certain 90-yard as well Sunday.

The majors cheapened their first red-zone in 17 games, while Clyde Edwards-Heilier has an excuse for his calm performance, while allowing an NFL-low 53.0 rushing yards per game yardage to run back But it is curious how little he was given to his college production as a receiver) … Ronald Jones Whenever he has a ball in his hands, he continues to impress.

Tom Brady has already reached a career high at home this season, but he and the rest of Tampa Bay’s offense looked better during the second half. Mike Evans has 11 TD catches on 48 receptions this year, while only three of Brady’s 41 pass attempts went the way of Antonio Brown on Sunday (which should make for an awkward position at home). The game was not as close as the final score indicated, and Kansas City deserves to be a clear Super Bowl favorite.

If you have a Mahomes-Hill stack in fantasy – congratulations. (AP Photo / Jeff Roberson)

Las Vegas Raiders @ Atlanta Falcons

Playing indoors against an Atlanta defense that allowed the most imaginary points at quarterback this season, Derek Carr made four changes without a poor performance. Josh Jacobs was not much better (in a much more difficult matchup for back running), yet survived losing and getting injured. Devontae Booker will be worth a flex debut in Week 13. The Jets should miss time for Jacob … Matt Ryan was also struggling, getting just 4.7 YPAs, as his divisions have been tougher with and without Julio Jones (and Olamide was dropped by Zaccheaus) ‘T Help) … Brian Hill missed a goal-line TD and most of Judge Ito Smith’s goals, while Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst dominated the smash spots … Youngghee Koo had all nine attempts in an effective kicking performance. (Five goals). .

Arizona Cardinals @ New England Patriots

Kyler Murray disappoints against a New England defense that entered by allowing an NFL-high 8.7 YPA and finished last in DVOA, recording a touchdown after having at least two in every other game this season Failed (Bill Belichick is still a young QB). Kenyan Drake’s score was almost third, but in the last play before halftime the inch filled in the line. His use is very encouraging going forward … Damian Harris played much better than his box score, while James White scored negative receiving yards, but scored two goal-line touchdowns, as did all Expected … Cam Newton received a 4.7 YPA completing nine passes. With a TD and two picks, the Patriots still won anyway (Arizona’s record would look very different if Zen Gonzalez didn’t miss three late under 50 yards this season).

New York Giants @ Cincinnati Bengals

Brandon Allen was predictably a problem, dropping all the fantasy value from Cincinnati, while the concern now is Colt McCoy (3.1 YPA) going down with Daniel Jones for New York. This is an especially unfortunate time in Week 13 with such a favorable matchup against the Seahawks next season… Wayne Gallman Jr. has six stunning touchdowns in the last five games when he has seen his car rise in each competition, but A move and an upcoming game for McCoy against a tough Seahawks run defense is not ideal … 4-7 Giants have a -39 point difference yet are the # 4 seed in the NFC.

Cleveland Browns @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Kareem Hunt received 6.2 YPC, but was completely overseen by Nick Chubb, who finished with 176 yards with a score of 22 yards. Jarvis Lundry ran out of nowhere and a Jacksonville defenseman who seemingly put everyone on IR last week… while Keylan Cole and Laviska Shenolt both looked like sleepers this week, it was Coleen. Johnson was Who took advantage of all the team’s injuries, As Mike Glennan proved a major upgrade to QB and validated the team’s decision to free Luton. James Robinson is the # 4 fantasy PPR back, very notable for an undetermined rookie in a 1–10 team, dodging three bad quarterbacks.

Carolina Panthers @ Minnesota Vikings

Pass attempts took a season-high, but Kirk Cousins ​​came through a good fantasy game despite missing Adam Thielen and Irv Smith, and he now has 17 TD passes in six home games this season. Teddy Bridgwater left the injured late, and his position would affect the rest of the Panthers moving forward … DJ Moore also left with an injury, which would be big news for Robbie Anderson and Curtis Samuel if he got serious. Carolina’s Week 13 bye is needed … Justin Jefferson’s mad efficiency dropped some, but fantasy managers will forgive him thanks to two touchdown catches … rookie Jeremy Chin Smoke recovered significantly for touchdown In back-to-back plays, which happen for the losing team, it becomes even more impossible … Dalvin Cook lost one season while being helped on the field by teammates, but he did wonders The manner bounced back, so until he no doubt disappointed DFS players, the season-long managers on Sunday should take a sigh of relief.

Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts

The Colts were really missing defrost Buckner, as was Derrick Henry Wild, entering halftime with 17 carries for 140 yards and three touchdowns, which would have been. 10th best rb fantasy sport this season (And it steals well with Ryan Tannehill as a 1-yard TD run). Henry has not developed as a receiver with Dion Lewis, which was expected, but in a season full of fictional hustle, The big dog Now # 2 fantasy is coming back on the year – also in the PPR League. In the second half of the season since 2018, Henry has now scored 26 touchdowns in 18 games … AJ Brown Had to catch TD of 69 yards and also Returned a reverse kick attempt for home, And the star wideout somehow has up to 16 career touchdowns despite seeing fewer than 150 goals … Jacoby Brissett has become a TD vulture, although Nyheim Hines is still produced in the PPR league. TI Hilton scored the first goal this season, while Michael Pittman disappointed despite seeing nine targets.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Buffalo Bills

The Bills emerged from their bye with a more productive rushing attack, and Josh Allen’s quiet games are unavailable this season with John Brown. Allen may work with a swollen ankle this week, when he is scheduled for a game to be played on a rare neutral ground on Monday night (Biles likely has to return to the “Hell Murray” scene) .. Justin Herbert is leading the NFL. In passer rating when under pressure, but most struggle, though the rogues are still managing 300+ passing yards while still disappointing … Austin Eckler managed just 3.1 YPC, but very well during his return Seemed (the LAC is arguably the worst run-scoring team in football), racking up 16 goals, meaning Keenan Allen’s value takes a small hit, while securing Eclair as a top-five fantasy Can be considered as moving back … Someone who made friendly bets On this result, The last sequence was not ideal, And it looks like Anthony Lynn may no longer be a favorite for Coach of the Year.

Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets

Ryan Fitzpatrick is a major upgrade to the fantasy value of DeVant Parker (and also helps Mike Gesicci), and Miles Gaskin could be a fictional inter-producer scheduled for three straight home games with Miami. .. Frank Gore reached more yards after contact with it. The season ended with a season-high in rushing yards compared to Jonathan Taylor and Alvin Kamara, as 2020… Jason Sanders is a perfect 8-for-8 for field-goal attempts from 50+ yards this season… Sam Darnold entered with the NFL’s worst. Passer ratings when not under pressure and receive NFL-Ni 5.0 YPA on plays that were not actionable, and he answered with two picks and zero TDs during his return. Denzel Mims (who returned with a bang early Sunday) Is the real deal And this is already the biggest fantasy winner of this offseason, going from Flacco / Sam Darnald and Adam Gesse to Trevor Lawrence and literally anyone else.

New Orleans Saints @ Denver Broncos

Forced to start wide receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback, the Broncos should consider a win they were not close to (the line had more than 17 favorites as a Saints / below with 36.5 points). Hinton became the first QB since Ryan Leaf in 1998 to end a game with more blocking than perfection, and it is not easy to be a full-time quarterback who deserves a WR that is not yet valuable in fantasy leagues Is … Jerry Zeudy made his fourth entry into the Air Ward this season (and was beating the field in the last month), but saw a goal on Sunday … Tysem Hill benefited from the script of the game and he did the last. Helped the fantasy managers with their fourth rushing score in two weeks, and he would resume the week. With another Atlanta matchup on 13 decks … Alvin Kamara has one catch with Hill for -2 yards in two matches, and has also lost four hurried scores to his new mobile QB. If this was not enough, Kamra also lost two stunning TDS and was ruled out by Latavius ​​Murray during Sunday’s rout. Week 13 Kamra gets a Falcon defense Still stingy against imaginary backs Over the past six weeks, so his once huge imagination continues to take a price hit.

San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Ram

After averaging 344.3 passing yards in his last three games, the ugly Jared Goff returned on Sunday, Highlighted by a pick-six on the defensive from the rogues Jevan Kinlow. San Francisco received some reinforcements on defense (including Richard Sherman), but lost at home for the first time despite this season Recording your own defensive touchdown When entering as a 7.5-point favorite. In fact, it was his third win of the 49th season when he entered the Underdogs … Debo Samuel Most yards after contact by a wide receiver This season in the game during his return against a Ram defense that allows the fewest yards per game. Brandon Ayuk and Samuel would theoretically cut into each other’s goals, but this would require both to have a potential event to recover at the same time … Cam Akers has emerged as Ram’s favorite back, and while He would not be consistent in a committee, the crook described good imagination as his crime and reduced the vibe.

Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers threw an easy four touchdowns against the Bears defense that allowed the second-most passing TDS of the year, and his safety was elusive when taking zero hits on Sunday night … a quiet game by the standards of Davant Adams so far Has been as a journey. In the end zone (entering Week 12, Michael Thomas, Cooper Kupp, Terry McLaurin, Jerry Zeudy, AJ Green, and DJ Moore caught zero of their 23 combined end-of-field goals this season; Adams Had pulled 6 out of 6 points. Looks in the end zone), while Aaron Jones and Jamal Williams continued to divide the work evenly … While most came into production in what some might call trash time, Alan Robinson and David Montgomery still had their best fantasy games of the season during both, at least Mitch Trubisky is going for him.
