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 Start.
Oakland Raiders at New York Jets
We liked the Raiders last week and we like them again against the lowly Jets. Two weeks straight the Raiders have piled up a season-high 5.0 sacks, and have caused five turnovers. They held their first team under 15 points and they’ve got a chance to do it again against he Jets who have failed to score 10 points five times this year. Granted, that was all in September and October, and scoring is up for the Jets, but a good pass rush can help force turnovers and make things happen.
