Fantasy Football Sleepers: Raider Ramble Week 12 Edition

Which under the radar players will prove to be helpful this week? Let’s take a look at this week’s Raider Ramble edition of Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 12.

Fantasy Football Sleepers: Raider Ramble Week 12 Edition

Week 11 Recap

Another week of a couple studs but more duds. Daniel Jones and the Commanders DST were top five in their position groups. Foster Moreau only logged one catch for 33 yards. Kadarius Toney was injured early and scored zero points. Brian Robinson saw 15 touches but only ran for 57 yards and never saw the end zone. Onto week 12.

*Disclaimer, all stats are gathered from NFL and NFL Fantasy websites.

QB Ryan Tannehill vs CIN

Since returning from injury, Ryan Tannehill has ranked as the ninth-best quarterback in fantasy football. He has thrown for over 500 yards and four touchdowns in that span. He will be going against the Bengals, who have allowed the fourth-fewest points to quarterbacks this season. That may not help put confidence in his potential, but it should be noted that both teams Tannehill played over the last two weeks are also in the top 10 in points allowed to quarterbacks.

RB Rachaad White @ CLE

With Leonard Fournette listed as doubtful this week, Rachaad White is expected to become the lead running back. White already saw an increase in touches, and that was evident last week with 22 attempts for 105 yards. The Browns allow the second-most points to running backs, giving up an average of 34.43 points over the last four weeks. There is no excuse for White to have an underwhelming performance.

WR Parris Campbell vs PIT

Since Matt Ryan got his starting job back, Parris Campbell has scored 20.60 and 11.70 points over the last two weeks, respectively. Now, he’ll look to keep it up against the team that allows the most points to wide receivers. Campbell has caught no fewer than five passes over his last four games with Ryan at quarterback. He should definitely be of use in most leagues, but especially in PPR formats.

TE Juwan Johnson @ SF

Tight end is always going to be a tough position to figure out. That being said, Juwan Johnson deserves a higher roster percentage (39.6%). Johnson has scored between 12.20 and 20.20 points over four of the last five games. The main concern is that he is reliant on touchdowns in all of these games, but managers must simply ride the hot hand as long as he is scoring. The Niners defense allows the fourth-fewest points to tight ends, but Johnson still has potential to see some looks in the end zone.

DST Kansas City Chiefs vs LAR

The Chiefs DST hasn’t been prolific, but they are receiving a golden opportunity at home this week. The Rams have allowed the second-most points to DSTs this season. They will also be without Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford. Bryce Perkins will also be making his first career start at quarterback. The Rams allow the third-most sacks. The Chiefs’ defense will surely have their own belated Thanksgiving feast this weekend.
