The Cardinals, Chiefs, Chargers, and Vikings all have a bye in week 12. There are some great fantasy players on these teams, and there’s a chance you’re missing one or more of the FLEX players on your roster. Whether this is the case, or you’re just trying to get a couple of extra points through some good matchups, here are some players to check out for the FLEX position on your roster in week 12.
Despite Ty Johnson being cleared to play, Bo Scarbrough carried the Lions running attack on Sunday. He had 14 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown, a performance good for 11.5 points in PPR leagues. The Lions have a good matchup against the Redskins this Sunday. The Redskins allow the 5th most rushing yards per game with 133.9, and allow 25.3 points per game. I’m expecting Scarbrough to carry his week 11 momentum into week 12 and get another double digit PPR performance.
Ballage put up some low numbers on Sunday against the Bills. He had 9 carries for 9 yards and a touchdown, and 5 receptions for 8 yards. However, because of that touchdown and those 5 receptions, he got 12.7 points in PPR leagues. I still think Ballage is in for a big game, and I think it can come against the Browns, their next matchup. The Browns allow an average 127.2 rushing yards per game, the 7th most in the league. If the Dolphins feed Ballage I think we are going to see another double digit game for him in PPR leagues.
The Steelers had a tough matchup against the Browns. Samuels put up 26 yards on 5 carries, and 5 receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown. Despite some relatively low numbers, this totaled in a 15.5 point performance in PPR leagues, which is a pretty solid FLEX performance. The Steelers are coming off their tough matchup into a very favorable one against the Bengals. The Bengals allow an average 167.0 rushing yards per game, the most in the league. I think the Steelers are going to bounce back hard from their tough loss against the Browns, and that Samuels will put up another mid to high double digit performance.
George Kittle and Emmanuel Sanders are out with injuries which means Deebo Samuel has been getting more targets, 7, 11, and 10 over the past three weeks to be exact. He went 8 for 134 on Sunday against the Cardinals, a 21.4 point PPR performance. The week before, he went 8 for 112, a 19.2 PPR performance. The 49ers have a tougher matchup against the Packers this week, who rank in the top half of the league against the pass. The 49ers have been in the top half of the league for the pass, so I wouldn’t shy away from Samuel due to a tougher matchup.
DeVante Parker has been having a great season so far. He just came off of a 7 reception, 135 yard game, his best of the season. What’s more, he did it against a top 10 pass defense. So far this season he’s only had 2 games under 10 PPR points, and yet, he still sits below 50% ownership. The Dolphins have a tough matchup against the Browns, but I wouldn’t let this dissuade you from Parker. He had his biggest game last week against the Bills, the pass defense that allows the 3rd fewest yards per game. The Browns allow the 6th fewest, so they’re no easy opponent, but I think Parker is going to have another good performance.
Renfrow has only had 3 games over 10 PPR points this season. However, those three have come in the last 5 weeks, meaning he’s been trending upward lately. Last weekend, Renfrow put up 5 receptions for 66 yards, and was tied with Waller for the most receptions. Their next matchup is against the Jets, who have allowed an average 253.3 yards against the pass every game, the 12th most in the league. I think Renfrow will continue his upward trend and would be a good FLEX option for week 12.
Fant has been seeing more targets from the Broncos recently. He went 4 for 60 against the Vikings and 3 for 115 and a touchdown against the Browns, a 20.5 PPR performance. The Broncos are going up against the Bills, a top 10 or maybe even top 5 pass defense, so it’ll be a tough matchup. Over the past couple of weeks Fant has been their most relied-upon receiver outside of Courtland Sutton. Despite having a tough matchup, I think Fant is still going to see a lot of targets due to his high reception rate for the Broncos over the past couple of weeks.
