Welcome to the Sports Talk Line Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12 cheat sheet. I can’t say enough about the rankings system this sheet is based on. Facing the team with the same record as me, my weekly Fantasy Football performance reports stated this past week:
Misericordias beats (their opponent) in 180.3-155.9 blowoutMVP Fantasy Football League
That is because I followed the SportsTalkLine ranking system to the letter for my draft, waiver-wire pickups, and start/sit decisions.
Let’s take a closer look at who you should start or sit for Week 12. I’ve compiled a list of the top 5 players at their position based upon a slew of metrics (more on that below) using the Sports Talk Line Fantasy Football Rankings system for the 2021 Fantasy Football season, and I am currently on an eight-game winning streak in my fantasy league that has been going since 2009. As I stated earlier, I can’t say enough about this system.
It’s a tough NFL fantasy league, but I’ve had the new Sports Talk Line Fantasy Rankings System in my back pocket this season, and the results have been excellent! The system is computerized, so you have to adjust it with the acumen of what is currently happening in the league and any players or team. Let’s take a look at the top 5 for each player grouping. Of course, you can always get the full list at the site.
Week 12 Fantasy Football Rankings
Top 5 Fantasy QBs For Week 12
- Tom Brady
- Matthew Stafford
- Derek Carr
- Justin Herbert
- Josh Allen
Stafford, Carr, Herbert, and Allen have a lot to prove this week. Like Brady last week, you don’t want to face these guys coming off a bad game. Mahomes and Prescott drop out of the top 5 while their teams figure some things out.
Insider Info: Brady is the goat. He is not at the performance cliff now or in the foreseeable future.
Top 5 Fantasy RBs for Week 12
- Dalvin Cook
- Jonathan Taylor
- David Montgomery
- Ezekiel Elliott
- Joe Mixon
How can you not put Taylor in the #1 slot? Because he is facing a NASTY run D this week and one has to think he will be a focal point of the opposing defense. Be sure and stay on top of your favorite injury list. I use the free one at Sports Talk Line.
Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12 – WR Top 5
- Cooper Kupp
- Davante Adams
- Deebo Samuel
- Justin Jefferson
- Stefon Diggs
- A.J. Brown – injurries just suck
Kupp from #1 to out of top 5 to back up top. Creme rises! The matchups for these guys are solid this week. The STL Fantasy Schedule is gold. 🙂
Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12 – TE Top 5
- George Kittle
- Darren Waller
- Kyle Pitts
- Mark Andrews
- T.J. Hockenson
I give you my comments from last week as they are still spot-on: “Kittle is a beast and, when healthy, the best option of the big 3. When he’s healthy. Kelce is the most consistent, and Waller is on the Raiders, which is frustrating. Kyle Pitts is bringing it, people!”
Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12 – K Top 5
- Greg Zuerlein
- Nick Folk
- Justin Tucker
- Mike Badgley
- Tyler Bass
I stream my kicker, and if you noticed how many drop each week out of the top 5, you have an inkling as to why. The rankings are not based on which guy is better but which guy will do best with that week’s matchup. There ya go.
Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12 – D Top 5
- NE Patriots
- Chicago Bears
- Carolina Panthers
- Buffalo Bills
- Philly Eagles
Pretty much the same as kickers except for rare teams.
STL Fantasy Rankings System
Any fantasy ranking system is only as good as its scouts. Rather than just depending on one guy, what if you could talk to all of the scouts from different platforms across the web and weigh their opinions based on how good they are? That’s what you will find at all Sports Talk Line Fantasy Rankings.
In short, Sports Talk Line aggregates rankings and projections from several sites on the web – most you already know, but not all. We record their rankings & projections and weight them based upon how accurate each source is throughout the seasons.
No site is the best across the board, so STL Rankings weight and rank each by position and type (weekly or draft rankings). So, for example, the best predictor of QB’s will have the most influence on our QB rankings. Likewise, the best predictor of RB’s will be most influential on our RB rankings and so forth. Thus our Fantasy Football Rankings Week 10 cheat sheet considers all these variables where you don’t get anywhere else!
