There’s just a few weeks left to make that playoff push, to position yourself, to get that higher seed or separation. Fantasy owners are down to the last bye week, and with the Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers and Minnesota Vikings all out, some prime time players will be on the shelf. Dalvin Cook owners for example are going to need look to their bench for the first time this season and fill that hole. Melvin Gordon owners were just starting to get comfortable starting him too, and will need to change their lineup, and that’s where we are there to help you out.

Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.

Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.

Here are your Week 12 Fantasy Football Team Defense  to Sit.

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints

There’s been a few games where the Saints have come out flat. Week 2 against he Rams where Drew Brees was knocked out of the game, Week 4 and 6 when Teddy Bridgewater was still finding his way as a starter, and most recently in Week 10 against the Falcons who suddenly found their identity. In the rest of their past games, New Orleans has scored at least 27 points. The Saints do not commit a lot of turnovers so there are few areas where the Panthers can score fantasy points, especially if they can’t get the pass rush started early.
