Sorry for posting this a late everybody, I know a lot of you look forward to this list and unfortunately I couldn’t turn it in on time because I was traveling to New Orleans and missed the cut off time before the Thursday games. So this list will not contain any players who played on Thanksgiving and will only list players playing Sunday and Monday.
That being said, Thanksgiving weekend is finally upon us and I couldn’t be more thankful for this season and all the blessings it has provided for myself and the team at Fantasy Couch. As this week presents a time to reflect on things you are thankful for, it is also a good time to step back and take a hard look at your fantasy team and how you go to where you are at this point in the season whether you’re in last place or first. Now for the list…
Week 12 Start ’em
Danny Woodhead – Bal RB
This suggestion is strictly for PPR formats, and Woodhead is one of the strongest options in his second week back from injury. The Ravens eased him back into his pass catching role in Week 11, but I fully expect them to increase his volume as Joe Flacco will need someone to dump the ball off to facing an aggressive Texans pass rush. Fire up Woodhead in your Flex this week and reap the PPR rewards.
Ravens running back Danny Woodhead isn't on a snap count coming off a hamstring injury, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Woodhead was limited to 13 snaps last Sunday because of Baltimore's lead in the second half. https://t.co/ytKuoSNoPs

J.D. McKissic (in PPR)
WRs to Start
Ted Ginn Jr.
TEs to Start
Week 12 Sit ’em
Joe Mixon – Cin RB
Mixon will get plenty of touches against the Browns, but that won’t translate into significant production due to the porous offensive line of the Bengals. Playing on the road, Mixon will find it difficult to get much going on the ground against a Browns defense that surprisingly is only allowing 3.15 yards per carry to running backs this season. The rookie running back has been unable to show explosion in the open field as of late and I expect much of the same in Week 12 despite his high number of touches.
Mixon Week 12 Projections: 18 carries, 39 rushing yards, 1 reception, 0 TD’s
