Fantasy football Week 12: Start and sit

Eddie Brown, The San Diego Union-Tribune on

Published in Football

Who to start: Devin Singletary (BUF) is the overall RB26 in standard (RB21 in PPR) this season. The ceiling isn’t as high for D’Andre Swift (DET) because the Lions continue to limit his playing time, but he’s scored a TD in three of four games since returning from injury.

Who to sit: James Cook (BUF) and Nyheim Hines (BUF) offer boom-or-bust potential, primarily in PPR formats, but nothing more at this point. Jared Goff (DET) only has four TD passes in the last five games. Kalif Raymond (DET) is only an option if you’re desperate with boom-or-bust potential overall and some flex value in deeper PPR formats with at least three receptions in seven straight games.

Sleeper: Dawson Knox (BUF) faces a defense allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends this season.


Obvious starters: Saquon Barkley (NYG), Tony Pollard (DAL), CeeDee Lamb (DAL), Dalton Schultz (DAL), Dak Prescott (DAL), Cowboys D/ST.

Who to start: It’s a difficult matchup, but Daniel Jones (NYG) is the overall QB10 this season — QB8 since Week 8. Ezekiel Elliott (DAL) isn’t as explosive or efficient as he once was, but he’s scored five TDs in the last three games he’s played.


Who to sit: I’m fading the Giants D/ST against an efficient offense away from home on a short week. Michael Gallup (DAL) hasn’t topped four receptions or 49 yards this season and hasn’t scored since Week 4.

Sleeper: Darius Slayton (NYG) faces a defense that has allowed 10 TDs to wide receivers in 10 games.


Obvious starters: Rhamondre Stevenson (NE), Patriots D/ST, Justin Jefferson (MIN), Dalvin Cook (MIN), TJ Hockenson (MIN).
