Fantasy Football Week 12 Wrap: 2022’s league winner? It’s looking like Josh Jacobs


Las Vegas Raiders @ Seattle Seahawks

Josh Jacobs It was Touchdown for 86 yards in overtimebecoming only the sixth player dwarf 300 yards from scramble this century in an epic fantasy performance on Sunday. He was late with Friday’s injury report – usually an ominous sign – but showed no signs of a calf injury while running. NFL season record 229 yards as well as two touchdowns. Jacobs lost a passing job (and receiving a touchdown) Amir Abdullah but now only inferior Austin Thanks. among RB in fantasy glasses this season.

He was your real “league winner” in 2022.

Derek Carr was intercepted in the first play of the game and appeared to be seriously injured at one point, but bounced back with his first three-touchdown performance of the season. Carr has multiple touchdowns in four consecutive games despite being eliminated from a couple of tough road games. The Raiders deserve massive credit for dropping 40 points in Seattle against a rising Seahawks defense that has produced the fifth-lowest yards per game in the past three weeks.

Geno Smith joined Carr as the top 12 fantasy QB this week, while Kenneth Walker was only 1.9 YPC but scored twice. Walker was a rookie and it was discouraging to see him score just one goal after eight last week. But both of his touchdown runs have been extremely impressive since K9 continues to provide weekly highlights. Fantasy managers will fight for Walker at the draft tables next year.

Denver Broncos @ Carolina Panthers

The Broncos lost by 13 points and were 100+ yards behind against Sam Darnold– at the head of the Panther tank team. Darnold had TD “run”, bye Russell Wilson somehow threw groping. Wilson produced -10.7 EPA (11th percentile) and became Most Memorable Player in the League. Depending on your scoring format, Wilson is probably the worst fantasy quarterback this week.

This match had less over/under than the COVID game when Kendall Hinton started in QB – and Still got under… dj moore won from Darnold as he did in the past as he was in the top 10 WR this week despite Carolina not having to take 20 shots… Although the Denver offense is a complete disaster, at least Latavius ​​Murray became the workhorse and starter of the weekly fantasy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Cleveland Browns

Tom Brady is on track for 726 assists this season (one short of the NFL record), and Chris Godwin looked healthier after saying goodbye to Tampa Bay …Rachaad White didn’t blow up against a shaky Cleveland defense, but dominated the backfield as hoped, hitting all nine goals. Its (potentially huge) fantasy value will depend on Leonard Furnettavailability/future use… Tristan Wirfs was taken away in overtime, but early signs are positiveAmari Cooper failed in the fourth quarter, but David Njoku made up for it with an amazing late TD grab. Nick Chubb scored touchdown in OT … It seemed to me alone that the announcer said “Cool Whale” caught a touchdown from Brady? (It was Ko Kift). Deshawn Watson returns at 13 weeks.

Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Lamar Jackson continued to run while battling a hip injury and finished in the top 10 QB with Josh Oliver as well as DeSean Jackson as its leading recipients. The Ravens’ running backs also continued to struggle with returning Gus Edwards managing just 3.3 YPCs and losing a fumble in the fourth quarter. Kenyan Drake replaced him to start the next series, but quickly left, immediately losing a transmission. Mark Andrews also lost a touchdown, but LJax deserves some blame as QB missed an open DeMarcus Robinson for a 50-yard touchdown early in the first quarter after the start of the game was delayed by lightning.

Travis Etienne stayed with leg injury, according to him, is not seriousbut just signed Darrell Henderson could soon be a factor… Trevor Lawrence lost his sixth NFL fumble of the season but was otherwise amazing, wiping out Baltimore’s rising defense to finish this week in the top five fantasy quarterbacks… Zai Jones — not the most fantastic option, but this week he led the league in receiving yards (145) during his fourth double-figure goal game of the season… Justin Tucker scored 65 consecutive fourth quarter/overtime field goals before losing during 67-yard attempt to end Sunday’s game.

Chicago Bears @ New York Jets

Mike White was notable update above Zach Wilson, setting up New York’s first touchdown of the season and the most rushing yards in the first half (235) since his debut last season. The Bears have a condescending defense, but White impressed with 11.3 YPA and a first-place finish in the QB five in the pouring rain. Elijah Moore scored for the first time this season, and Garrett Wilson hit the dirt twice and entered the top five WR. Wilson looks like a real alpha, who now has a real quarterback, so he can be considered a top 15 fantasy player…

Having received an oblique injury before the game, Trevor Simian made an anesthetic injection to avoid Nathan Peterman aim at all costs. Simian had Chicago passing arguably as good as ever this season during the first half before being shut down at halftime… Michael Carter was one of the biggest fantasy flops this week, as its arrow was pointing up with James Robinson a healthy scratch in a very favorable match/game scenario. Carter was out in the third quarter but lost a significant amount of work to the rookie. Zonova knight before. Knight is in Sportzshala’s 0% leagues and could suddenly become the leader of an increasingly competitive Jets team… Chase Claypool can be added to deeper fantasy leagues with Darnell Mooney suffering potentially season-ending injury.

Houston Texans @ Miami Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa continued to play very well, with the game script predictably holding back Miami’s offensive stats; Tua had 278 yards from a halftime pass but finished with 299… Jordan Akins it was a busy game fumble losing who went for a touchdown and nearly turned a drop into an interception the next hand, and also finished in the top five tight ends this week. Kyle Allen looked very similar Davis MillsDameon Pierce Lost Score From Goalline But Seen Six Goals And Got Cleveland Poor Defense At Home In Week 13…LT Terron Armstead walked away with a chest injury, which isn’t ideal ahead of next week’s game in San Francisco… Jeff Wilson struggled with injury (or cramps) and didn’t explode in a crushing place without Raheem Mostertbye Miles Gaskin surpassed Salwon Ahmed like the next RB on the Miami depth chart. The Dolphins scored at least 30 points in four straight games and then faced a 49ers defense that had scored in four straight second halves.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans

Ty Higgins played his second major game in a row with Ja’Marr Chase still on the sidelines while Tyler Boyd remained surprisingly quiet. Tennessee Pass and windy conditions persist Joe Burrownumbers down while crotch made perfect Joe Mixon impression … Derrick Henry scored just 2.8 YPCs in last three games and lost fumble/touchdown Trailon Burks after a long sunday. Rookie Burks also later pulled a terrific catch. In 2023 fantasy leagues, Berks will be a serious target… This game ended after the Titans crushed Evan McPherson a field goal attempt that would have made the difference seven points.

Atlanta Falcons @ Washington Commanders

Marcus Mariota threw an ugly interception late in the end zone while Taylor Heinicke just keeps on winning. It was a quiet fantasy performance by all involved except Bryan Robinsonwhich this week entered the top five of the best RB and then began to wear this generation “chubby shirt” after the game. Terry McLaurin as well as Drake London both suffered from extremely heavy attacks… Of course, the Falcons tight end scored on a wide-open throw in the end zone now that Kyle Pitts no… All four NFC East teams are currently in the playoffs.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Arizona Cardinals

Justin Herbert as well as Kyler Murray They entered the top four fantasy QBs this week, rushing for 94 yards together despite injuries. Murray was coming back from a hamstring strain (and not a fan of the Arizona system), while Herbert said he can still feel his ribs move during games. Marchioness Brown led Arizona on targets during his return, but Trey McBride did not take over slot duties as fantasy managers had hoped… After a season Keenan Allenreturn last week Austin Thanks. saw 15 against the Cardinals… James Conner lost a fumble early, but otherwise broke through the Chargers’ poor defense. Now it’s used as often as any other in the league… DeAndre Hopkins secured the greatest four yard catch you’ve ever seen … The Chargers lost several offensive linemen during Sunday’s win, sending Arizona down to 1-6 at home and down to Season’s first attempt at an LA two-point conversation.

Los Angeles Rams @ Kansas City Chiefs

Rams entered as the biggest underdogs – while the reigning Super Bowl champion – in NFL history. Los Angeles led in possession time in the first half, but ultimately lost for the fifth straight game. The Rams will clearly stay away from fantasy for the rest of the season… Isaiah Pacheco It has fully occupied by KC’s running backwhich could lead to a bunch of TDs in the future. historically productive crime. Now the Chiefs are on their way to the next three games… Patrick Mahomes is located …
