Selecting which of your players to start in the right weeks will help you achieve success in the season. The Bruno Boys are here to help you with those crucial decisions, consider the tough matchups and warn you when your studs are facing defensive assignments that should temper your expectations.
It’s Week 12 and Thanksgiving Week, so that means we have three games this Thursday, so we’re going to share our early week starts and starts for just Thanksgiving Day right here, for each position.
Here are your Week 12 Thanksgiving Starts and Sits to Start.
QB Starts: Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins
Opposing quarterbacks have averaged 320 passing yards and 1.5 touchdowns over the last four gains against the Redskins. While Prescott is hardly a headliner QB1, but consider what he could do against a Redskins team that’s just lost their starting quarterback, that has had a shaky secondary, and if Prescott can run at least one touchdown to go along with 1-2 touchdown passes. Last time he’s played the Redskins was back in Week 7 when he threw for 273 yards and one touchdown with one rushing score. If he can produce that kind of box score again, or better yet, surpass it, he’ll come away looking like a strong play.
