Don’t fill yourself up too much this Thanksgiving, because there’s plenty more football to be had after Thursday.
Week 12’s Sunday slate features several juicy matchups, especially if you’re looking to whet your daily fantasy football appetite.
Check out our Week 12 FanDuel lineup below.
Quarterback: Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders ($7,900)
The 8-2 Raiders average 276 passing yards per game, and they get a home matchup against a Carolina Panthers defense allowing 272 passing yards per game. That seems like a safe bet for another big game from Carr.
Running Backs: DeMarco Murray, Tennessee Titans ($8,300); Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks ($7,000)
Murray has been a fantasy monster this year, and he figures to keep rolling in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears, who aren’t exactly the “Monsters of the Midway” anymore.
C.J. Prosise’s injury and Christine Michael’s departure once again leave Seattle’s backfield to Rawls, and he has a good chance to cash in against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense allowing 115 rushing yards per game this season.
Wide Receivers: Amari Cooper, Raiders ($7,800); Julian Edelman, New England Patriots ($6,400); Rishard Matthews, Tennessee Titans ($6,200)
Cooper is Carr’s No. 1 target and has scored twice in his last three games. He could be in for a big day against the Panthers’ vulnerable secondary.
Speaking of targets, Edelman had a season-high 17 passes thrown his way last Sunday. The New York Jets have a good run defense but an abysmal pass defense, meaning Tom Brady should be looking Edelman’s way often Sunday.
Murray isn’t the only Titan who could have a big day Sunday, as Matthews is the new No. 1 receiver in Tennessee and has tallied 10-plus fantasy points (standard leagues) in four consecutive weeks.
Tight End: Jimmy Graham, Seattle Seahawks ($6,900)
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ passing attack have hit their stride, and Graham has benefited with 15 catches and three touchdowns in his last three games. Seattle has a great matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ porous defense in Week 12.
Kicker: Steven Hauschka, Seahawks ($4,700)
More offense means more chances for kickers to pile up the points. Hauschka should feast against the Bucs, who are allowing 26 points per game this season.
Defense: Buffalo Bills ($4,800)
If the Detroit Lions’ defense can score 20 fantasy points against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we shudder to think what the Bills can do versus the lowly Jags in Week 12.
