Our NFL Expert’s week 12 Fantasy Football Free Agent Pickups
Only a couple weeks left until it’s time for the fantasy playoffs and we’re all trying to pull together a couple more options for the bench. It’s slim pickings out there, but here are some options to check out.
QB – Ryan Fitzpatrick TB
QB – Baker Mayfield
Coming off a bye week to take on the Bengals on the road, Mayfield may be a decent pick up if you need a last minute replacement for your backup QB that got benched or snapped his leg last week.
QB – Eli Manning
Eli wasn’t terrible the last 4 weeks. But, you never know when he’ll decide to turn that around. On the road against the struggling Eagles may be a tough game, but there’s not a lot of other options out there.
RB – Austin Ekeler LAC
Ekeler is a dual threat back up to Melvin Gordon. He may not put up huge numbers, but there is potential. Especially if the Chargers can pull away from the Cardinals at home.
WR – Tre’quan Smith NO
Smith is coming off a huge game against Philly. He has had two massive games this year, but has been practically absent in the rest. If you’re looking for a flex player, he’s only owned in 13% of leagues.
D/ST – Colts
The Colts have won 4 straight and take on the Dolphins this week at home. The Colts haven’t had a prolific defense this year, but the Dolphins have been abysmal on offense. Couple that with a good week from the Colts defense last week and confidence from their winning streak, they should have a good performance this week.
It’s getting tough to find the diamonds in the rough out there. Good luck!
