QB Baker Mayfield (CLE) vs. MIA – 57.2% Rostered

After a rough start to the season for Baker Mayfield, he has recently hit his stride in the past few weeks. Scoring at least 17 fantasy points in the past 3 weeks against some tough defenses including the Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Facing the Miami Dolphins in week 12 at home, Baker is slated to have a huge game. The Dolphins have allowed the 4th most passing touchdowns, 3rd highest yards per completion, 4th highest yards per attempt, and the 15th most passing yards on the 4th fewest passing attempts. They also have the least number of turnovers this season. With Mayfield still available in 42.8% of fantasy leagues, he is the best pickup this week at the QB position. Mayfield is back and is ready to explode on the Dolphins in week 12.

TE Vance McDonald (PIT) vs. CIN – 55.3% Rostered

After a second disappointing week in a row for the Steelers tight-end, scoring just 4.8 fantasy points against the Browns in week 11. McDonald caught 3 of 7 targets for 33 yards in that game. The one thing that should be promising to fantasy players is McDonalds consistency of targets in recent weeks. Seeing 7 targets in each of his last 3 games is very promising coming up this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals rank 20th against opposing fantasy tight-ends. Giving up the 10th most passing yards, the most yards per completion, and the highest yards per attempt. McDonald is seeing a high usage in the red-zone, tied for most red-zone targets with JuJu Smith-Schuster on the Steelers. With JuJu banged up and still not practicing with the team this week, McDonald is looking to see an uptick in this category. McDonald will be a force to be reckoned with this week against the Bengals.

WR DeVante Parker (MIA) vs. CLE – 57.8% Rostered

DeVante Parker has been a surprising fantasy asset this year. After years of promise and failing to deliver on those promises, he is finally starting to deliver. Seeing at least 6 targets in the last 5 matchups, totaling 20 in just the past two weeks. Parker is the guy in Miami. Leading the Miami Dolphins is every statistical category including yards, targets, receptions, and touchdowns. Parker has come on as a valuable fantasy asset in the Dolphins offense. Facing a solid Cleveland Browns pass defense in week 12 will be his last tough matchup of the fantasy season, facing the Jets, Eagles, Giants, and Cincinnati in the coming weeks. Even with the tough matchup against the Cleveland Browns, his target share is too dominant in this offense to fail. He has earned the trust of the gun-slinging quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, and he will sling the ball to Parker all day.

RB Bo Scarbrough (DET) vs. WAS – 38.6% Rostered

After being signed on to the Lions less than 24 hours before their week 11 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, Scarbrough led the backfield in offensive snaps played (49%) and carries (14). In his week 11 matchup he rushed for 55 yards on 14 carries and scoring a touchdown totaling 11.5 fantasy points against a solid Dallas Cowboys rush defense. An impressive outing for someone who had just signed on with the team. Now getting a full week’s worth of practices in with the Lions, Scarbrough will face the Washing Redskins in week 12. The Redskins rank 26th against opposing fantasy running-backs. Allowing the 5th most rushing yards, averaging 121 rushing yards allowed per game, and allowing a yards per carry of 4.1 yards. After the solid performance he put on against the Dallas Cowboys, Scarbrough could be seeing an even larger workload as he integrates more into this offense. Scarbrough is a great running-back with potential to boom this week against the Redskins.

WR Chris Conley (JAX) vs. TEN – 16.5% Rostered

In week 11 Conley saw 8 targets, catching 6 for 58 yards against the Indianapolis Colts. Good to see that the change in quarterback position from Minshew to Foles did not affect Conley’s usage in the passing game. Seeing at least 7 targets in the past 4 games for the Jaguars, Conley has cemented himself a role in this offense. Leading the Jaguars’ wide receivers in snaps played and 2nd in targets so far this season. Conley is an explosive athlete who can blow up on any given play. Facing a middle of the pack pass defense from the Tennessee Titans in week 12 who rank 18th against opposing fantasy wide receivers. Conley is a sneaky play that will help you win your fantasy week just ahead of playoffs.

WR Taylor Gabriel (CHI) vs. NYG – 8.8% Rostered

Coming off a solid performance against the Los Angeles Rams where Gabriel totaled 7 catches on 14 targets for 57 yards. Gabriel saw a massive uptick in targets in week 11. Gabriel has seen 20 total targets in the past two weeks, seeing 6 against the Lions in week 10. Gabriel is second on the Bears in snaps, targets, receptions, yards, and leads the Bears wide receivers in touchdowns this season. Facing the New York Giants in week 12 who rank 31st against opposing fantasy wide receivers. This is a juicy matchup for the Bears speedster. The Giants have allowed 9th most passing yards, 4th highest yards per completion, 2nd highest yards per attempt, and the 11th touchdown passes this season. Gabriel will be the pickup that will be the envy of your fantasy football enemies.
