Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 12

Happy Thanksgiving!

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions 12:30pm FOX
Miami Dolphins @ Dallas Cowboys 4:15pm CBS
San Francisco 49ers @ Baltimore Ravens 8:20pm NFL

Week 11 brought us more injuries to key fantasy players.  Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears could potentially miss the rest of the season after surgery on his thumb.  Division rival Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings left early after suffering what looked like a nasty ankle injury.  AP is promising to play, but it might not be in his, or the teams best interest if he does.  Over in the AFC, the Buffalo Bills Fred Jackson bruised his calf and might sit against the Jets.  2 key RBs could miss Week 12 and then some, which could leave fantasy owners reaching for a RB in the coming weeks.  But have no fear, as We Talk Fantasy Sports are going to help you pick the right guy.  Let us know who you have to pick from!

Must Haves
Torrey Smith WR – This guy has too much upside not to have on your team.  With his speed he is capable of putting up huge numbers each week.  He’s only going to get better as he and Joe Flacco develop a stronger chemistry.

Week 10 was a disaster for many fantasy football owners.  Quarterbacks Matt Schaub and Matt Cassel both suffered season ending injuries and once again Mike Vick is injured with broken ribs and his start is in doubt against the Giants in NY.  Running back Knowshown Moreno tore his ACL and is also done for the year. Wide receivers Calvin Johnson and Julio Jones also suffered injuries.  With all these injuries these are the players you should turn to for the rest of the year.

Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 10


With no BYE weeks in week 10, most people should be set with their teams as they won't need BYE week fillers.  However there has been a ton of injuries to big name players this season so here are a few players who can help out this week and for weeks to come!

Must Haves
Laurent Robinson WR - Mentioned last week to pick him up as he had a big game against the Eagles and was a legitimate deep threat.  Had another 5 catches and a TD last week against the Seahawks.  With Miles Austin out for 2-4 weeks Robinson will step into the starting lineup and will see an increase in targets in the upcoming weeks.

Have a dilemma at RB/WR? Can’t figure out which player to start? Leave your question in the comment section and we will hook you up with the right answer!

If we have given you a suggestion as to who you should play, please reply on Monday or Tuesday and let us know what you did and if it worked!

Fav QB Matchup – Matt Cassel @ Dolphins - With 34 completions since the bye week, Cassel has racked up 422 yards.  Even though he has thrown 4 INTs to just 1 TD, Cassel is set to have a solid week against the Dolphins.  He also has a new weapon in Jon Baldwin which makes his life much easier.

Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 9

With 4 teams on a bye, are you in need of some assistance on who to pickup to help bolster your roster? Here are some players who we think can make a positive impact on your fantasy squad, who are still available in most leagues.

Must Haves
Brandon Jacbos RB - With Ahmad Bradshaw out indefinitely, and possibly needing surgery, Jacobs will finally get his wish.  He is the starting RB again in NY and should put up big numbers as he has a lot to prove. 

Jonathan Baldwin WR – He has all the talent in the world on the field, just needs to keep his head straight off the field.  He made himself known on MNF and impressed with 5 catches, 82 yards and a RIDICULOUS TD. Pick him up before someone else does!
