Week 11 was an action packed week of NFL football. The Browns pulled off a huge road victory with a last second field goal against the Falcons, Seattle was dominant at home in a 19-3 victory against the Cardinals and the Patriots were unstoppable against the Lions in a 34-9 rout. For those in need of advice for week 12, below is our guide for must-start players, as well as players you should sit and add off the waiver wire to fill up your roster.
Quarterbacks: Cam Newton
Cam hasn’t been a force in fantasy football this year but has a tasty matchup this week against Minnesota. The Vikings don’t have anyone dynamic enough on defensive line to stop Newton from throwing anywhere he wants on the field. Newton will be a valuable weapon running the ball in the red zone against Minnesota as well. Two touchdown passes and a running touchdown should be the floor for Newton this week.
Ultimate Cam Newton Highlights
Sleeper: Ben Rothlisberger The Former Superbowl MVP faces a weak New Orleans secondary at home. Ben should have a big game as the Steelers have had two weeks to prepare over the bye.
Running backs: Shane Vereen
Vereen played 63 snaps last week, which was more than any New England running back. The Packers defense has been horrible and Brady has been on fire throwing the ball all season. Vereen is an active player in the passing game and will see a fair share of targets. Look for Shane to break free this week for a touchdown catch against Green Bay.
Sleeper: Jeremy Hill
Gio Bernard may be the starter in Cincinnati, but the carries are split evenly between the two backs. Hill has a favorable matchup against Tampa Bay and should shake loose this week for a couple big runs.
