    Key storylines/What to Watch

    The first game of Week 12 has the highest over/under of the week by a wide margin, which should have fantasy GMs salivating.  The Bills should be able to get whatever they want on offense, while their defense has been struggling over the past few weeks and should allow the Lions to be able to keep up.  The Lions (4-7) are on a three-game win streak and with a win, would match their highest win total in any of their past four seasons. Meanwhile, the Bills (7-3) have been struggling over the past month, losing two-of-four games after starting the season 5-1.  Both offenses rank in the top-6 in yards per game and top-8 in points per game, so there should be more than enough fantasy points to go around.


    Top Starts 

    Josh Allen & Stefon Diggs: The duo of Allen and Diggs are the best QB/WR combo in fantasy football this year.  Allen is the QB2 on the season, while Diggs is the WR1. They are consistently locked in especially in the red zone.  The two have hooked up for eight passing touchdowns this year, racking up 1033 receiving yards in just 10 games. Both players have the potential to lead their positions in fantasy scoring this week in a very juicy matchup. 


    Amon-Ra St. Brown: Once again, ARSB has been great this year.  He is the clear top target for Jared Goff in the Lions’ passing game and has tallied at least 13.3 fantasy points in six of nine games this year.  On the season he is the WR15, but over the past four weeks he is the WR10 with at least four receptions, eight targets and 55 yards in each of those contests. Against a Bills’ passing defense that has been exploited through the air over the past number of weeks, St. Brown should be able to feast on Turkey Day.


    Jamaal Williams: Even with D’Andre Swift being active over the past few games, it remains Williams leading the Lions backfield.  He ranks as the RB13 on the season and leads the league in rushing touchdowns. Until Swift shows that he is completely healthy, there is no reason to ever bench Williams, but even then, he will remain their goal-line RB and will be a fantasy relevant player. 


    Boom/Bust Dart-Throw

    Dawson Knox: Over the last two weeks, Knox’s production and involvement have grown in comparison to what he had all year. He is the TE20 on the season, but ranks as the TE7 over the last two games.  Knox has at least four receptions and six targets for 57 yards in each of his last two games, a mark that he had not hit otherwise this year. 


    Devon Singletary: Singletary has scored over 15.7 fantasy points in each of his last two games, something he only has done one other time this year.  It helps that he has scored all three of his rushing touchdowns on the season in that span. He ranks as the RB21 on the season, but RB10 over the last two games. Singletary was a league winner last season and seems to be trending in that direction again in 2022.
