Fantasy Football Update 11/23/16: Week 12 Start / Sit Picks
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy This Week
November 23, 2016
We’re heading into a busy Week 12 in the NFL, and that means it’s time to get those fantasy football lineups set. Let’s check out this week’s Start/Sit recommendations so you can get the most out of your roster over the next few days.

Marcus Mariota, QB, Tennessee Titans: Mariota has been highly effective for fantasy owners over the last several weeks, scoring 19 or more points in six of his last seven outings.
Mariota heads into a nice matchup against the Bears this week, as Chicago has given up 17 or more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in three of the last four weeks.
Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins: Ajayi was off to a solid run there for a while, but has come back down to earth over the last couple of outings. That should change this weekend against San Francisco, however.
The 49ers are allowing the most fantasy points to opposing running backs in the entire league with 28.6 PPG, and they’ve given up 1,576 rushing yards with 13 touchdowns to RBs as well. Make sure to start Ajayi.
Julian Edelman, WR, New England Patriots: Edelman is coming off a nice game against the 49ers, bagging 77 yards and a touchdown in his best fantasy line yet this year.
Edelman gets a nice matchup this weekend against the struggling Jets secondary, and New York has given up double-digit fantasy points to an even half-dozen top wide receivers this season.
Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Winston has been on a pretty solid roll in recent weeks, and has put up some nice stats for fantasy owners willing to give him a go.
That said, Winston draws a pretty tough matchup this week against Seattle. The Seahawks are allowing an average of just 13.1 fantasy points per road game to opposing quarterbacks this season.
Jeremy Hill, RB, Cincinnati Bengals: With Giovani Bernard out of action for the year, many owners are counting on Hill to pick up the slack. While that will likely be true due to his amount of touches, he’s got a rough matchup against Baltimore this week.
The Ravens are giving up an average of just 8.9 PPG to opposing running backs at home this year, so temper your expectations with Hill.
Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers: It may be time to cut the cord on Cobb. He’s only managed a high of 8.4 fantasy points in his last three games, and will get a road game against the Eagles this week.
Philly has given up just two touchdowns at home to opposing wide receivers, so at the very least temper your expectations with Cobb.
