With a 3-6 week we are now 46-51 on the season, and hoping the Thanksgiving weekend helps us get back on the right track. Don’t forget to check out our Four Studs and One Dud Thanksgiving Edition, and now let’s begin looking at the rest of week twelve:

QB- Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Indianapolis Colts (Fanduel Price- $7300, DraftKings Price- $5500)

If you’re like me, you waited to pick quarterback at draft time and got stuck with Colin Kaepernick, but hopefully you had the foresight to pick Winston as your backup and are now reaping the rewards after his five touchdown showing against Philadelphia. He has another dream matchup this week, as the Colts have given up multiple touchdowns to all but three quarterbacks they have faced through their first ten games. Be happy DraftKings still has him cheap.

QB- Brian Hoyer- Houston Texans vs. New Orleans Saints (FD- $7100, DK- $5000)

The Saints defense is historically terrible (the second such defense Rob Ryan has produced in the last five years by the way), so when you see a cheap quarterback playing them, you jump on it. Hoyer and DeAndre Hopkins should be good for at least two touchdown passes and probably more this week.

RB- Doug Martin- Tampa Bay at Indianapolis (FD- $7500, DK- $5800)

While he won’t get 235 rushing yards this week, the Muscle Hamster should still be good for a double-digit fantasy point showing against the weak Colts defense, and he’s always a threat in the passing game as well, even with Charles Sims still getting his touches. Start him with confidence.

RB- TJ Yeldon- Jacksonville Jaguars vs. San Diego Chargers (FD- $6500, DK- $4800)

Todd Gurley has stolen the thunder from the rookie class, but Yeldon has been consistent in his rookie season, and now he faces the 27th ranked rushing defense in the league in the Chargers. Expect his third 100-yard game of the season.

WR- Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins at New York Jets (FD- $7000, DK- $6600)

This is a bad matchup for most of the Dolphins, but not for Landry, as the Jets actually give up the ninth most fantasy points to receivers this season. He’s gotten at least five receptions in all but five games this season, so he’s one of the safest bets for a double-digit fantasy point showing in the league, and he’s still not ridiculously priced yet. Enjoy it.

WR- Brandin Cooks, New Orleans at Houston (FD- $7300, DK- $6400)

On paper, the Texans are a top-10 defense against receivers, but they have allowed 11 receiving touchdowns this year, and Drew Brees is going to have to throw, given how bad his defense has been this season. Cooks was on fire before the bye week, with five touchdowns and 257 receiving yards on 15 catches in the previous three games. Expect the hot streak to continue this week.

WR- John Brown, Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (FD- $5700, DK- $5000)

Brown has mostly been a disappointed during what was supposed to be his breakout season, largely due to the resurgence of Larry Fitzgerald. But Brown did find the end zone against the Bengals in week eleven, and now faces a Niners defense that has given up double-digit fantasy points to at least one receiver every week this season except the first week of the year. Expect a big game from Brown.

SPECIAL PERFORMANCES

RB- Charles Sims, Tampa Bay at Indianapolis (FD- $5400, DK- $3500)
WR- Dorial Green-Beckham, Tennessee Titans vs. Oakland (FD- $5400, DK- $3300)

Because Sims is utilized in the passing game, he is always a threat to score at least one touchdown, like he did in last week’s blowout. Even being second fiddle to Martin, he’s a decent fantasy option for those looking for a punt play. As for Green-Beckham, he’s been a complete boom-or-bust play this season, but he also played 84 percent of the offensive snaps in week eleven, and head coach Mike Mularkey is making it a point to give him more playing time. If it continues against a Raiders defense who rank 30th against the pass, expect big things from the raw rookie.
