Taylor has huge Week 6 game


Fantasy games weren’t nearly as high scoring this week. We went from teams scoring 200-plus points last week to teams struggling to score 100. The early games Sunday were especially poor for many fantasy owners. The good news is the late games did provide some offense, leading to some fantasy points. Hopefully, those big games in the afternoon games were enough for your team to get a victory this week.

Bucs 28, Eagles 22

Fantasy Stud: Leonard Fournette. Fournette has really taken his game to a new level, dominating the work at running back for the Bucs and producing well with his chances. He ran 22 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns. He also had six receptions for 46 yards. So he had 127 total yards and two scores in the game. Fournette had a season-high 30.7 fantasy points and has 20-plus fantasy points two straight games. He has emerged as a top No. 2 back for fantasy teams.

Fantasy Dud: Mike Evans. Evans was the quiet receiver for the Bucs this week, catching two passes for 27 yards. He had a season low 4.7 fantasy points. Evans had at least 14 fantasy points four straight games before this showing. This is going to happen every once in a while, though, in an offense with a lot of great weapons in the passing game.

Game Notes: Jalen Hurts did not have a very good game but still produced for his fantasy teams once again. He was just 12-of-26 for 115 yards and a touchdown with an interception. Hurts ran 10 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns, giving him three total touchdowns.

Antonio Brown had a season-high nine receptions. He caught nine passes for 93 yards and a touchdown. Brown has at least seven receptions three straight games. 

Jaguars 23, Dolphins 20

Fantasy Stud: Jaylen Waddle. Waddle had his best game as a pro, racking up 10 catches. He had 10 receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Waddle had 29 fantasy points. He has two games with double-digit receptions this season. His yards aren’t great, but he is getting plenty of weekly targets and has a high ceiling in PPR formats.

Fantasy Dud: Myles Gaskin. Gaskin had his best game of the season last week but took a backseat to Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed much of this game. As many of you, we have no idea what is going on with this running back situation. Gaskin ran five times for just nine yards and caught two passes for five yards. You can’t trust any of these Dolphins backs right now.

Game Notes: Tua Tagaovailoa returned from his broken ribs and played well, gong 33-of-47 for 329 yards and two touchdowns with an interception. This was his first 300-yard game of the year and his 25.7 fantasy points were a season high.

Jamal Agnew continues to emerge in the Jaguars passing attack. He had five receptions for 78 yards. Agnew has 11 receptions his last two games and looks to be a big part of the offense going forward.

Ravens 34, Chargers 6

Fantasy Stud: Mark Andrews. Andrews just keeps getting it done for his fantasy owners. He had five receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown. Andrews has touchdowns two straight. He also has double-digit fantasy points all but the first game of the season. He has become an elite fantasy tight end once again.

Fantasy Dud: Austin Ekeler. There were a lot of duds from the Chargers, but Ekeler gets the nod for Los Angeles. He ran six times for just seven yards. He also had four receptions for 48 yards. Ekeler had fewer than double-digit fantasy points for the first time all season. He had at least 50-rushing yards before this game as well. It just wasn’t a good day for the Chargers offense.

Game Notes: Rookie Rashod Bateman made his season debut and caught four passes for 29 yards. He should continue to get more playing time going forward, building on his first game.

Mike Williams was able to play but was held out late in the game with the Chargers losing big. Williams had just two receptions for 27 yards. He was targeted five times.

Bengals 34, Lions 11

Fantasy Stud: Joe Burrow. Burrow had a great game, finishing 19-of-29 for 271 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. He also ran five times for 20 yards, giving him 26.6 fantasy points. Burrow has multiple touchdowns every game and at least 21 fantasy points all but a game. He has been very consistent for all his fantasy owners.

Fantasy Dud: Jared Goff. Goff had a dreadful game, going 28-of-42 for 202 yards without a touchdown and an interception. Goff has failed to score a touchdown pass two straight and three of four. He has really cooled since a solid start. He has less than 12 fantasy points three of four games.

Game Notes: Joe Mixon got most of the work and looked pretty healthy, running 18 times for 94 yards. He also caught five passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Mixon has touchdowns three straight games.

T.J. Hockenson had his best game since Week 2. He caught eight passes for 74 yards on 11 targets. He had fewer than 50 yards three straight games before this showing.

Packers 24, Bears 14

Fantasy Stud: Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers didn’t throw for 200 yards but found the end zone three times, making for a big fantasy day. He was 17-of-23 for 195 yards and two touchdowns without a turnovers. He also ran seven times for 19 yards and a touchdown. Rodgers had 25.7 fantasy points, giving him 22-plus fantasy points five straight games. He has really taken his game to a new level in recent weeks.

Fantasy Dud: Allen Robinson. Robinson led the team in receiving yards, but that still didn’t make for a good fantasy performance. He had four receptions for 53 yards. Robinson had seven targets, which was his highest total since Week 1. He failed to reach double-digit fantasy points, though, and has topped that number just once all year. Robinson has really been a bust to date.

Game Notes: Khalil Herbert started and had a good game. He ran 19 times for 97 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for 15 yards, giving him 112 total yards and a score.

Aaron Jones rushed the ball 13 times for 76 yards. A.J. Dillon had two fewer carries, running the all 11 times for 59 yards. Both backs got a good amount of work and produced.

Colts 31, Texans 3

Fantasy Stud: Jonathan Taylor. Taylor only ran 14 times but made the most of it, breaking off some long runs. He rushed 14 times for 145 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a catch for 13 yards. Taylor has 20-plus fantasy points three straight games. He also has hit the 100-yard rushing mark two of three. Taylor is running like a top No. 1 fantasy back.

Fantasy Dud: Michael Pittman. Pittman had been hot the last few weeks but cooled off here. He had just two receptions for 35 yards. Pittman had at least six receptions four straight games before this performance. He will be just fine going forward, but this game was a poor one, especially if you consider the favorable matchup.

Game Notes: TY Hilton made his season debut and caught four passes for 80 yards. Unfortunately, he injured his quad and left the game early. This will be an injury to monitor going forward.

Davis Mills had a bit of a rough performance. He failed to score a touchdown and was intercepted twice. Tyrod Taylor will be the starter for the Texans once he is healthy enough to play.

Rams 38, Giants 11

Fantasy Stud: Cooper Kupp. Kupp had his usual big performance once again. He had nine receptions for 130 yards and two touchdowns. Kupp has three 100-yard games and three games with multiple touchdowns. He is making a run at top fantasy receiver in the game right now. His numbers are just off the charts.   

Fantasy Dud: Daniel Jones. Jones was awful, going 29-of-51 fo 242 yards with three interceptions. He also lost a fumble, giving him four turnovers in the game. Jones is a very hard fantasy player to trust. He has fewer than 12 fantasy points each of his last two games, but also has three games with 26-plus fantasy points.

Game Notes: Kadarius Toney came out hot, catching three passes for 36 yards. He aggravated his ankle injury, though, and didn’t return after the first quarter.

Sterling Shepard returned to the lineup from his hamstring injury and led the Giants in receiving. He had 10 receptions for 76 yards. Shepard has seven or more receptions three of four games.

Chiefs 31, Washington 13

Fantasy Stud: Darrel Williams. Williams did well for his fantasy owners in his first start of the season. He averaged just three yards per carry, but ran 21 times for 62 yards and two touchdowns. He also had three catches for 27 yards. As long as he is starting, Williams has fantasy value in an offense that can provide him plenty of goal-line chances. 

Fantasy Dud: Terry McLaurin. This looked like a great matchup on paper, but it didn’t play out that way for the Washington offense. McLaurin caught just four passes for 28 yards against one of the worst secondaries in football. It was a very disappointing showing from one of the best fantasy receivers in the game. Hopefully, this is just a blip on the radar for McLaurin.

Game Notes: Patrick Mahomes was intercepted twice but threw for nearly 400 yards. He was 32-of-47 for 397 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Mahomes has at lest 25 fantasy points every game.

J.D. McKissic had one of his better games of the season, getting to play a little more with Washington being forced to throw more. He led the team in rushing, running eight times for 45 yards. He also led the team in receiving, catching eight passes for 65 yards.

Vikings 34, Panthers 28

Fantasy Stud: Adam Thielen. Thielen reached double-digit catches for the first time this season. He had 11 receptions for 126 yard and a touchdown. This was also his first 100-yard game of the year. Thielen is having another fine season, having at least six receptions four of six games.

Fantasy Dud: Sam Darnold. Darnold had his struggles once again, going just 17-of-41 for 207 yards and a touchdown with an interception. He also lost a fumble. Darnold has really slowed down since a great start to his season with his new team. He looks more like the Darnold from his days in New York these days.

Game Notes: Dalvin Cook enjoyed his best rushing game of the season. He ran the ball 29 times for 140 yards and a touchdown. His ankle injury that slowed him in recent weeks seems a thing of the past.

Kirk Cousins had his third three-touchdown game of the season. He was 33-of-48 for 373 yards and three touchdowns without a turnover. He isn’t flashy but gets it done on a weekly basis, having at least 25-fantasy points four of six games.

Cardinals 37, Browns 14

Fantasy Stud: Kyler Murray. Murray just keeps rolling, finishing 20-of-30 for 229 yards and four touchdowns without a turnover. Murray has three games this year with four touchdowns. He has 17 total touchdowns on the season and hasn’t thrown an interception since Week 3. Murray is having a huge, huge season.

Fantasy Dud: Kareem Hunt. Hunt seemed poised for a big game with Nick Chubb out, but that didn’t happen. The Cardinals held him in check. He ran 14 times for 66 yards and caught three passes for 12 yards. Hunt had his second worse fantasy game of the season despite getting the start for the first time this year.

Game Notes: Donovan Peoples-Jones continues to emerge in the Browns passing game. He had four receptions for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Peoples-Jones has 70 or more yards two straight games.

A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and DeAndre Hopkins all scored touchdowns at receiver for the Cardinals. Hopkins scored twice on three catches, having three receptions for 55 yards and two scores.

Raiders 34, Broncos 24

Fantasy Stud: Noah Fant. Fant was a bright spot for an offense that had some struggles. He finished with nine receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown. Both totals were season highs for Fant. He has scores two of three games, though. He has at least 12 fantasy points four of six games. He has been a solid No. 1 tight end for fantasy teams.

Fantasy Dud: Hunter Renfrow. Renfrow didn’t do much for once despite the Raiders throwing for 341 yards. Renfrow had three receptions for 36 yards. Both totals were season lows for Renfrow. It was the first time all year he also had fewer than double-digit fantasy points.

Game Notes: Teddy Bridgewater had four turnovers but still produced well for fantasy teams. He got a lot of chances to throw the ball with the team trailing. Bridgewater was 35-of-49 for 334 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions.

Henry Ruggs scored his second touchdown of the year. He had three receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown.

Cowboys 35, Patriots 29

Fantasy Stud: CeeDee Lamb. Lamb finally had that huge game, catching nine passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns. He had 36.1 fantasy points. He has touchdowns two straight games. Lamb has two down games but his other four games have at least 17 fantasy points. Maybe this game will get him going in a big way going forward.

Fantasy Dud: Jakobi Meyers. Many thought this might be a matchup for Meyers to have a big performance. He did led the team in receptions with five but had just 44 yards. It just wasn’t the game you hoped from Meyers. The one positive was he converted a two-point try. But overall, his game wasn’t too good.

Game Notes: Damien Harris was iffy to play because of a rib injury but played and played great. He had his second 100-yard rushing game. He ran 18 times for 101 yards and a touchdown.

Dak Prescott hit the 400-yard mark for the second time this year. He was 36-of-51 for 445 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. He had a season-high 34.3 fantasy points.

Steelers 23, Seahawks 20

Fantasy Stud: Najee Harris. Harris is becoming the focal point of the Steelers offense. He had 30 touches in this game. He ran 24 times for 81 yards and caught six passes for 46 yards and a touchdown. So he had 127 total yards and a touchdown, scoring 24.7 fantasy points. Harris has 19-plus fantasy points five straight games. He is an elite fantasy back in his rookie season.

Fantasy Dud: Chase Claypool. Claypool was coming off his best game of the season, so expectations were high for him in a favorable matchup against the Seahawks. Claypool was a dud, though, catching just two passes for 17 yards on seven targets. The good news is he got a lot of chances. He just didn’t convert. This might happen a little more going forward with Ben Roethlisberger on his last legs.

Game Notes: Alex Collins had a great game as the starter for the Seahawks. He had his first 100-yard game of the year, rushing 20 times for 101 yards and a touchdown. He was banged up late in the game, though, and was unable to finish the game. Keep an eye on the player notes for the latest on Collins. This could be an injury situation to watch.

Geno Smith was up and down in his first start of the season. He was 23-of-32 for 209 yards and a touchdown without an interception. He did turn the ball over late in the game with the Seahawks having a chance to win the game. His fumble setup the Steelers game-winning field goal.

Five Waiver Wire Adds: Week 12

Player Notes
Marquez Valdes-Scantling Nov 27 1:00pm ET
Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling is coming off a monster performance in the Week 11 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He caught four passes for 123 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown in last Sunday's loss. The 27-year-old led the Packers in targets and owned a whopping 32.3% percent of the team's target shares in Week 11. Teammate WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Los Angeles Rams. The player known as "MVS" is the Packers WR2 and is a boom-or-bust option against a Rams defense that ranks eighth in DVOA against the opposing team's secondary target.

Brandon McManus Nov 27 1:00pm ET
Brandon McManus

Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus has had an up-and-down season as a fantasy option in Denver's inconsistent offense. He has made 85.7% of his 21 field-goal tries, which ties a career high, and he's only missed one of his 19 extra-point attempts. McManus has missed just four kicks total, but he checks in as the No. 19 fantasy kicker in terms of overall points heading into the team's Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. His 21 field-goal attempts is tied for 10th in the league, while his 19 extra-point attempts has him tied for 22nd. The Chargers defense has allowed the sixth-most points per game this year and have been a friendly matchup for opposing kickers, though, so McManus will be an option as a low-end streamer in deeper leagues coming off Denver's bye week.

From RotoBaller

Tim Patrick Nov 27 12:50pm ET
Tim Patrick

Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick was recently signed to a three-year, $30 million contract extension and was also named to ESPN's all-underrated team for 2021. Patrick has kept a snap rate over 90% despite Jerry Jeudy's return in Week 8, and he ranks fourth in receiving DVOA this year while averaging 9.9 yards per target. The 28-year-old has been a key part of Denver's offense the last two years, especially when Courtland Sutton tore his ACL early in 2020. He has four touchdowns in 2021 and a career-high catch percentage of 69.8%, but he's seen just 14 targets (10 catches, 163 yards, one touchdown) in three games since Jeudy's return from a high ankle sprain. Patrick shouldn't be overlooked in this offense, but with targets hard to come by behind Jeudy and Sutton, he'll be a touchdown-dependent WR4/flex against a strong Los Angeles Chargers secondary this Sunday.

From RotoBaller

AJ Dillon Nov 27 12:50pm ET
AJ Dillon

Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon rushed for 53 yards on 11 attempts and caught all six targets in his first career start in the Week 11 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Aaron Jones (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. Dillon could get another start in Week 12 if the Packers rule out Jones ahead of Sunday's game. Green Bay does have a bye in Week 13; the team could be careful with Jones and rest him before heading into the bye week. Dillon has been efficient this season, rushing for 474 yards on 18 attempts and two touchdowns while catching 22-of-214 targets for 240 yards and a touchdown over 11 games in 2021. The 23-year-old is mid-range RB2 if Jones is ruled out but becomes a flex option if the Packers starting RB is active.

From RotoBaller

Noah Fant Nov 27 12:50pm ET
Noah Fant

Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant missed the Week 9 upset win over the Denver Broncos after testing positive for COVID-19, but he returned in Week 10 and had a respectable five catches for 59 yards on six targets in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Fant last found the end zone in Week 6 and had a two-catch game in Week 8, so he's been pretty inconsistent in an offense with plenty of mouths to feed through the air. However, at the weakest position in fantasy, the 24-year-old remains in play as at least a low-end TE1 option. He'll be facing a Los Angeles Chargers defense in Week 12 that hasn't allowed much through the air this season, but they have surrendered the second-most fantasy points per game (11.7) to the TE position in 2021. Fant has the opportunity to come out of the bye week with a strong performance.

From RotoBaller

Courtland Sutton Nov 27 12:40pm ET
Courtland Sutton

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton signed a four-year contract extension worth $60.8 million during the bye week. The 26-year-old has proven to be an excellent deep threat on the outside and has bounced back from his ACL tear in 2020, but he has taken a back seat in the offense ever since Jerry Jeudy returned from his high ankle sprain in Week 8. In three games with Jeudy back in the picture, Sutton has only five receptions for 78 yards on nine targets. Nine targets over a three-game span just isn't going to cut it. Sutton can still win with physicality down the field, but he'll have a tough matchup against a Los Angeles Chargers defense that is allowing the fifth-fewest receiving yards this season. Perhaps the Broncos will manufacture more ways to get Sutton the ball coming off their bye, but he'll be a touchdown-dependent WR3/flex, at best, in Week 12.

From RotoBaller

Zane Gonzalez Nov 27 12:30pm ET
Zane Gonzalez

Carolina Panthers kicker Zane Gonzalez is a streaming option against the Dolphins in Week 12. Gonzalez has been generally reliable this season, going 19-for-21 in field goals and 18-for-19 in extra points. Miami allows the fourth-most points to fantasy kickers, so the 26-year-old is a good streaming option.

From RotoBaller

Javonte Williams Nov 27 12:30pm ET
Javonte Williams

Denver Broncos rookie running back Javonte Williams has 103 carries and 127 total touches in 296 offensive snaps through 10 games this year, while Melvin Gordon has 118 carries and 139 total touches in 344 snaps. Denver is the only team to have two tailbacks with at least 500 rushing yards (Gordon 522, Williams 514) and one of only two teams with two 100-carry RBs. Williams has been more explosive and has shown more big-play ability -- 5.0 yards per carry and a team-high six runs of 20-plus yards -- but Gordon is expected to remain the starter in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Gordon has been more valuable in fantasy because he's found the end zone more, but Williams will have nice RB2 upside this Sunday against a Bolts defense that has allowed the most rushing yards per game (145.1) this year.

From RotoBaller

Nelson Agholor Nov 27 12:30pm ET
Nelson Agholor

New England Patriots wide receiver Nelson Agholor is coming off one of his best performances of the season. He hauled in all five of his targets for 40 yards and one touchdown last week. Although, it's worth noting that Agholor has finished with less than five receptions in every game, but two this season. There is normally a handful of targets for Agholor, but he doesn't always make them count. In Week 12, he'll face a Tennessee Titans defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to wideouts this season. This certainly seems like a favorable spot for Agholor to do some damage. Despite that, he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation deep league option.

From RotoBaller

Kendrick Bourne Nov 27 12:30pm ET
Kendrick Bourne

New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has hauled in 19 of his last 23 targets, which is quite outstanding. The speedy wideout seems to make the play when targeted, but there isn't always yardage after the catch. In fact, has surpassed 45 yards only once over his last four games. In Week 12, he'll get a Tennessee Titans defense that ranks ninth in pass DVOA this season. At this point, Bourne appears to be primarily a PPR option due to the lack of yardage. He might be able to produce WR4 value for this Week 12 matchup.

From RotoBaller

Jerry Jeudy Nov 27 12:30pm ET
Jerry Jeudy

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is still looking for the first touchdown of his sophomore season, but he's also only played in four games in 2021 after suffering a high ankle sprain in the season opener. Since returning from that injury, he has 16 catches on 21 targets for 156 yards (9.75 yards per catch). Although fantasy managers would like to see more, the good news is that the coaching staff is finding creative ways to get the ball in Jeudy's hands, and he's been quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's preferred target over Courtland Sutton in the last three games. Capping his upside is the fact that the Broncos have been spreading the ball around to all of their offensive weapons, and Jeudy will be a WR3/flex against a Chargers defense that is allowing the fifth-fewest receiving yards per game (224.6) in 2021.

From RotoBaller

Ian Thomas Nov 27 12:20pm ET
Ian Thomas

Carolina Panthers tight end Ian Thomas should be far away from starting lineups in Week 12. The 25-year-old has posted three receptions for 26 yards total in the last three games and that goes to show how little of a role he has in this offense. There are much better TE options to start in fantasy this week.

From RotoBaller

Melvin Gordon Nov 27 12:20pm ET
Melvin Gordon

The Denver Broncos still have plenty of confidence in running back Melvin Gordon III despite the fact that he's fumbled twice in the last three games, and his last one in Week 10 was returned for a touchdown. "Melvin's one of the top backs in this league," head coach Vic Fangio said. Despite the fumbling issues, Gordon leads the team with 522 rushing yards on 118 carries (4.4 yards per carry) and has found the end zone seven times (five rushing, two receiving) while sharing snaps with rookie Javonte Williams almost evenly. There's no reason to think the Broncos will change their backfield game plan in Week 12 against a Los Angeles Chargers defense that is surrendering the most rushing yards per game (145.1). Gordon will be an RB2 in fantasy in this revenge game.

From RotoBaller

Tua Tagovailoa Nov 27 12:20pm ET
Tua Tagovailoa

The Carolina Panthers defense is a top-five option for Week 12 against the Dolphins. This unit has gotten 30 sacks, eight picks, and 14 forced fumbles on the season thus far. While they do allow more points in some games, this unit has generally done a good job against weaker offenses. The Dolphins don't have an explosive offense and Tua Tagovailoa is still a young QB who is prone to mistakes, so there is reason to stream the Panthers defense this week with confidence.

From RotoBaller

Jakobi Meyers Nov 27 12:20pm ET
Jakobi Meyers

New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers has failed to surpass 50 receiving yards in each of his last six games. Although, it's worth noting that Meyers has seen four or more targets in every game this season. His production has been inconsistent, which makes him a difficult fantasy option on a weekly basis. Fantasy managers should consider Meyers a low-end flex option in PPR formats for Week 12. He'll face off against a Tennessee Titans defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to wideouts this season. The Patriots aren't exactly a pass-heavy team, but this is a favorable matchup for Meyers. The targets should be there, which makes him a solid candidate for PPR formats in Week 12.

From RotoBaller

D.J. Moore Nov 27 12:10pm ET
D.J. Moore

Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore is a WR2 option in Week 12 against the Dolphins. Moore's production has dipped a bit recently after a hot start to the season. In the last three games, he's posted 50 yards only once. Still, the WR is the top pass-catching option on this team and the target share will be there each week. Miami allows the second-most fantasy points to wideouts, so this could be the week Moore gets back on track.

From RotoBaller

Teddy Bridgewater Nov 27 12:10pm ET
Teddy Bridgewater

Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is coming off the bye week looking to put the team's disappointing Week 11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the rearview mirror. A week after a huge upset over the Dallas Cowboys, Bridgewater went 22-for-36 for 226 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Bridgewater hasn't turned the ball over since Week 7, but he has only thrown for 300-plus yards twice this year and not since Week 6. The Los Angeles Chargers defense won't exactly make it easy on Bridgewater to put up big numbers, either -- they've allowed the fifth-fewest passing yards per game (209.9), although they've been more generous to QBs in recent weeks in fantasy. In Denver's run-first, ball-control offense, Bridgewater will come out of the bye as a low-end QB2 once again.

From RotoBaller

Robby Anderson Nov 27 12:10pm ET
Robby Anderson

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson should remain on benches for the Week 12 clash against the Dolphins. The WR has a been a super disappointing fantasy option all season, not having posted more than 40 yards in a game since early October. Despite having a good target share in most games, Anderson cannot seem to take advantage of that. Because of his low production, he shouldn't be trusted even in a matchup with a Dolphins squad that allows the second-most fantasy points to WRs.

From RotoBaller

J.J. Taylor Nov 27 12:10pm ET
J.J. Taylor

New England Patriots running back J.J. Taylor was a healthy scratch last week. In fact, Taylor has only played in five games this season. Although, he could be asked to step up for the Week 12 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Both Damien Harris (neck) and Rhamondre Stevenson (knee) are listed as questionable for this contest. That leaves Taylor and Brandon Bolden as the primary options. However, fantasy managers shouldn't get too excited. The only time Taylor was productive was in Week 7 when he posted a two-touchdown performance. It's uncertain if Harris or Stevenson will actually be inactive yet. Taylor would be a desperation deep league option even with an expanded role.

From RotoBaller

Mac Jones Nov 27 12:00pm ET
Mac Jones

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has thrown for over 230 yards just once over his last six games. Despite that, his team has won every game, but one of those contests. The rookie quarterback isn't putting together superstar numbers, but is helping his team win. That being said, Jones is unlikely to be worth streaming against the Tennessee Titans in Week 12. A defense that ranks ninth in pass DVOA this season. There isn't a ton of upside here with the Pats being a run-heavy offense. Jones will be towards the bottom in terms of streaming options at QB this week. It's not because he's bad, but because he normally doesn't produce reliable fantasy numbers.

From RotoBaller
