Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Snag ‘Em for Week 12


Start ‘Em

1. Aaron Hernandez – TE – New England – @ Philadelphia: He will undoubtedly be covered by a Linebacker in one on one coverage without safety help, as the Eagles try to take away Rob Gronkowski. Given the Eagles horrid linebacker play this year Hernandez could have a career game.

2. Matt Leinart – QB – Houston – @ Jacksonville: If your fantasy team recently suffered the loss of Jay Cutler you are most likely in the market for a new starting quarterback. Leinart has a potent offense around him and knows the offense well. The only problem is if they get up early and end up running the ball to close out the Jaguars.

3. Greg Olsen – TE – Carolina – @ Indianapolis: The Panthers have played well but can’t seem to win a game. Now they’re playing the Colts, the winless Colts that is. Look for Olsen to catch the ball early as the Panthers try to get out to an early lead.

Sit ‘em

1. Michael Crabtree – WR – San Francisco – @ Baltimore: The 49ers have been claiming that Alex Smith is an elite quarterback, and tried to prove it by throwing often against the Giants, giving Crabtree some decent numbers. But against the Ravens their air assault will be grounded, and not due to inclement weather.

2. James Starks – RB – Green Bay – @ Detroit: The Packers leading rusher is questionable at the moment. Even if Stark’s were healthy it’d be a tough matchup for him given the Lions front seven.

3. Tarvaris Jackson – QB – Seattle – vs. Washington: The matchup against the Redskins is a favorable one for Jackson, but he is still questionable as of the middle of the week. His limited practice schedule recommends to many fantasy owners that the bench is the best place for him on Sunday.

Snag ‘Em

1. Kyle Orton – QB – Kansas City – @ Pittsburgh: The former Bronco was acquired off of waivers by the Chiefs this week. He won’t start this Sunday, but will in the future. If you lost Cutler and missed the boat on Leinart picking Orton up off of waivers isn’t an awful move.

2. C.J. Spiller – RB – Buffalo – @ NY Jets: The question surrounds Spiller, can he fill Fred Jackson’s shoes? It is unlikely that he will pick up where Jackson, the leagues leading rusher before breaking his leg last Sunday, left off, but he’ll definitely get the chance.

3. Vince Young – QB – Philadelphia – vs. New England: Word out of Philadelphia is that Vick is still not practicing and is still questionable for Sundays game. Despite throwing 3 interceptions last week, if Young starts he could enjoy a better outing given the Patriots lackluster pass defense and getting Maclin back in the lineup.
