Before jumping into week 12, a quick review for the tally on week 11. Cash got there bringing us to nine of 11 on the season. Tournaments were more dicey for me. Being too heavy on Mohamed Sanu and Emmanuel Sanders brought a good deal of failure while D.J. Chark, John Brown, and Michael Thomas were the wide receivers to carry some lineups. It was a low scoring week overall and this one could be similar as it has a lack of value pricing across the board. Let’s dive into it.
Bucs at Falcons
It would be completely irresponsible to go in any direction but this game as it has easily the highest total on the slate and the narrative of an improved Falcons defense will keep ownership on the game lower than it should be. If you watched the Falcons play last week, you saw the Panthers move the ball without trouble and then trip over themselves when it was time to punch it in the end zone. Allen threw interceptions that made Jameis Winston ($6,200) wonder he was doing, and speaking of the interception king himself, he is an underpriced great play this week that will also be under-owned.
We know the Bucs offense runs through the wide receivers with Winston being the trigger man. This begs the question of how have the WRs fared against Atlanta since the Falcons’ phantom ascension? In a phrase, just fine.
While Jamison Crowder ($6,200) has been the clear top option for Darnold, and is in play, the matchup sets up better for a big play threat, while Crowder is more of a possession player.
