Complete Week 12 Player Rankings & Projections l More Sit & Starts
Though the riverboat gambling style may have helped secure your spot in the playoffs, now is not the time to go against your top producers. Those that have shown the ability to get it done with the most consistency should see the field, while those that have proven to be a little flaky with their scoring should be holding the fantasy clipboard.
Last Week's Wide Receiver Starts: Roy Roundtree (13), Julio Jones (16), Justin Blackmon (21), Denarius Moore (15), Jordan White (19), Dwayne Harris (14), Noel Grigsby (19), D.J. Banks (26)
Grade: A. All double digits. Good stuff.
Last Week's Wide Receiver Sits: Michael Floyd (10), Jeremy Ebert (12), Chris Rainey (12), Johdrick Morris (11), Rishard Matthews (2), Tyshon Goode (22)
Grade: C-. Too many double digits. Not good.
Start Em! Wide Receivers
1. Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma at Baylor
I realize nobody is seriously considering NOT playing Broyles this week. But I'm trying to pad my average so leave me alone.
2. Detron Lewis, Texas Tech vs. Weber State
Maybe I'm waiting for a Lewis breakout that will not materialize. However this is a get well game for the Red Raiders, and I still hate Weber State for knocking out my alma mater in the 1995 NCAA tourney.
3. Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina vs. Troy
He's been held in check the last three weeks as Marcus Lattimore has stolen (at least in two of those weeks) the show. Jeffery gets back to the endzone against he men of Troy this weekend.
4. Paul Richardson, Colorado vs. Kansas State
This freshie is hitting his stride, and although K-State has been good against the pass there will be some points scored in this one. The Buffs can't give it to Rodney Stewart on every down.
1. Greg Salas, Hawaii vs. SJSU
#1 on our WR big board this week, so I've got to include Mr. Salas. Only Boise has been able to slow him down, and SJSU is not Boise.
2. T.Y. Hilton, FIU at LALF
Hilton has been dug out of the scrap heap, going from bust to must-start in the past two weeks. He's getting ball in different ways, and making the most of his touches.
3. Lance Lewis, ECU at Rice
This 6-3 target has been teaming with Dwayne Harris to wreak havoc of late. The Rice defense is in for a long afternoon.
4. Juan Nunez, Western Michigan at Kent State
Nunez has scored seven times in the last four weeks, going over 100 yards in three of those contests. This week, however, will test Nunez and his Bronco mates as the MAC's best defense arrives in Kalamazoo. Still, the WMU offense is humming and will get theirs this weekend.
Sit Em! Wide Receivers
1. Markus Wheaton, Oregon State vs. USC
Wheaton has emerged in the absence of James Rodgers, but he'll struggle to find paydirt against the Trojan defense, one that has to be better than the 96th national unit...right?
2. Denarius Moore, Tennessee at Vandy
Just feeling a slopfest in Nashville this weekend.
3. Ryan Swope, Texas A&M vs. Nebraska
IF the Aggies are able to move it through the air it'll likely be due to Jeff Fuller's immense talent. It's hard to envision a big night from Swope.
1. Justin Veltung, Idaho at Utah State
Following a crazy 6-140-4 outburst Louisiana Tech is Week Seven, Veltung has come crashing back down to college fantasy football Earth. He's stays grounded this weekend.
2. Patrick Edwards, Houston at Southern Miss
The definition of hit or miss. I'm betting a miss on the road.
3. Kealoha Pilares, Hawaii vs. SJSU
If Greg Salas is going to catch all the passes and scores then that leaves little for Pilares. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
