NFL Week 12 Fantasy Fill-ins
I’ve uncovered some guys you can plug in to your lineup if you are dealing with an injury or tough matchups. Check back following the games to see the stat line of guys profiled.
Jason Campbell - With Clinton Portis not at 100% the Skins will likely lean on the QB a little more this week. The Seahawks have had troubles defending the pass this year so Campbell could quietly turn in a solid performance.
Stat Line: 20 of 33 for 206 yards, TD, 6 carries for 32 yards
Peyton Hillis - When the Broncos gets bored with lighting the Raiders up through the air it will be Hillis getting the touches. Additionaly, he appears to be a good bet to score this week. He’s good at catching passes out of the backfield, which helps his cause.
Stat Line: 17 carries for 74 yards, TD, 2 catches for 22 yards
Derrick Ward - Brandon Jacobs is banged up and it seems foolish to give him a full load this week. Both Ward and Ahmad Bradshaw should see more action this week.
Stat Line: 20 carries for 69 yards, TD, 4 catches for 30 yards
Eddie Royal - While Brandon Marshall will have his hands full with Nnamdi Asomugha, Royal should be free to have a big game against the lowly Raiders. The first time he faced Oakland, Royal went for 146 yards on 9 catches.
Stat Line: 2 catches for 14 yards, 1 carry for 3 yards. Sorry.
Antonio Bryant - Bryant has to be drooling to be going up against Detroit. He’s caught at least five passes in each of his past four games. He’s also had two 100 yard games in his past four games. He should continue his strong play against the pathetic Lions.
Stat Line: 4 catches for 48 yards
Marcedes Lewis - I’ve been stressing that the Vikings have had a hard time defending Tight Ends since E.J. Henderson went down. This week it’s Lewis’ turn. After a slow week against Tennessee (1 catch for 19 yards) look for closer to the 3.5 catches for 50 yards he averaged the four games prior.
Stat Line: 4 catches for 41 yards
Nick Folk - If you dumped Nick Folk because of his disappointing play, this may be the week to get him back. He’s facing San Francisco who has allowed league highs of 26 FGs and 105 Kicker points.
Stat Line: 3 FGs, 4 PATs
Washington - Washington takes on Seattle this week. Though they haven’t scored much defensively (15 Sacks and 11 Turnovers) they should be able to produce vs. the Seahawks.
Stat Line: 2 Sacks, 2 INTs
