Fantasy Football Start and Sit: Week 12 

Fantasy Start and Sit

For some fantasy teams it’s do or die time this week, with the fantasy playoffs fast approaching. Make sure you have the right guys in the lineup or on the pines by looking at the Week 12 Start and Sit column. But first, let’s review last week’s picks. 

For the starts, Jon Kitna was a great call. While he only had 147 yards through the air, he had 4 total TDs with 40 rush yards. Santonio Holmes was another great call, catching 7 balls for well over 100 yards and 2 scores. Jamaal Charles had a couple touchdowns stolen from him by Thomas Jones, but still gained 126 yards on the day, making him a good start. Jason Witten was the worst start call, only getting 4 catches for under 50 yards.

For the sits, Jay Cutler was a great sit, with under 175 yards, no TDs and a pick. Mario Manningham was a great sit call, only catching 3 balls for 24 yards. Steven Jackson was another good sit call, with only 61 yards total and no TDs. Although he caught a TD, I’m still calling Aaron Hernandez a good sit, since that was his only catch and it was for 8 yards.

Total for week: 7/8

Now, what you really want to know, this week’s calls:


QB Kyle Orton, DEN vs. STL

Orton is continuing to have a great year, one of only a few bright spots on his team. With a home game against the Rams, he should continue his Pro-Bowl pace.

Projected stats: 24/31, 311 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 2 rushes, 12 yards

WR Brandon Lloyd, DEN vs. STL

This guy still only starts in 71% of leagues, so if you are in the 29%, get him in your lineup! He just eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark and might be comeback player of the year, after it looked like his journeyman career may be over. Expect a big day against the Rams.

Projected stats: 7 catches, 153 yards, 2 TD

RB Mike Tolbert, SD @ IND


Tolbert going against the Colts porous run defense is a dream matchup.  It’s truly size vs. speed in this matchup, and as long as the Chargers feed the big man the rock, it will be a nice day in Indy for Rivers and company. 

Projected stats: 25 rushes, 114 yards, 1 TD, 3 catches, 36 yards

TE Dustin Keller, NYJ vs. CIN

Keller is a great start against the Bengals this week. He should get plenty of targets from Sanchez. He’s been quiet lately, but that should change against a bad Bengals defense.

Projected stats: 7 catches, 81 yards, 1 TD


QB Donovan McNabb, WSH vs. MIN

A new coach in Minnesota will fire the Vikings up to come out after last week’s embarrassment. Don’t expect much from the ‘Skins on this day as they will lose and struggle.

Projected stats: 18/35, 196 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, 3 rushes, 21 yards

WR Larry Fitzgerald, ARZ vs. SF

Fitzgerald hasn’t been the same without Boldin and Warner at his side, and the struggles will continue this week.

Projected stats: 5 catches, 51 yards, 0 TD

RB Felix Jones, DAL vs. NO

Felix has put up some decent numbers the last few weeks, but the Boys will focus more on the pass game against the Saints. Even with a Thanksgiving Day game, where the Cowboys have thrived in the past, Jones is best left on the bench.

Projected stats: 14 carries, 51 yards, 0 TD, 3 catches, 14 yards

TE Todd Heap, BAL vs. TB

The Bucs defense is back to what it was when they made a run to the Super Bowl. Heap won’t get much on Sunday against the Bucs physical linebackers.

Projected stats: 3 catches, 31 yards, 0 TD

Good luck in your leagues in Week 12, and have a great Turkey Day!
