What do the Week 12 fantasy football rankings come up with? A side dish of Thanksgiving fun. Okay, more about our Top 10 Thanksgiving Side Dishes, but while we debate whether cranberry sauce is a food, let’s give you some Week 12 sleepovers, as well as the final buys and sells of the NFL season.

2022 Week 12 fantasy football sleepers
🚨 heads up These sleep. They will not imitate my ranking 100%. This chases the uptrend and often carries more risk.
Possible starter: Gino Smith, Sea Russell Wilson’s poor performance in Week 11 marked the first time a quarterback didn’t throw a touchdown or reach 16.7 points against the Raiders. In fact, Wilson managed 26.4 in the first game with the Raiders, as Davis Mills and Andy Dalton managed to throw two touchdowns in their face-offs. Smith has 2+ touchdowns in all but 2 games, including four heading straight into a bye for the Seahawks.
Possible starter: LaTavius Murray, Dean – As stated on waivers, that backfield is almost all Murray’s own now, and while the offense still can’t get out of its own way, Belkaw’s work is valuable. Sure, there’s the low ground, but the game helps, as the Panthers were the ones responsible for Joe Mixon’s insane Week 9, and also let the likes of Darrell Henderson, Tyler Allgier, and Tevin Coleman — yes, you read that correctly — score 12+ points.
Mary Start Tribute: Raheem Mostert, Mia – What do these consecutive scores look like: 10.0, 11.3, 11.8, 15.3, 22.5, 35.0, 35.3? Those seven have come in the past five games against Texas…just five! So while Jeff Wilson is now leading the Dolphins, Raheem Mostert has enough rallying to reach double digits in the same game, just as Dontrell Hilliard and Kenneth Gainwell did.
Possible starter: Drake London, ATL With Kyle Bates’ performance of the year, Marcus Mariota has to rely on London 50% of the time. The problem is, that still only amounts to 11 goals per week on average. However, while the Commanders have been playing better, they still made the 10th favorite game in Week 12. Branden Cox was 6-3-70-0 last week, and while that’s nothing to get stuck in, it’s Still usable if you are skinny on the receiver.
Possible starter: Allen Robinson, lar – Assuming he’s John Walford at center back, Robinson has a great playing role in the Chefs/London squad. He also has the best game of the week with the Chiefs forcing opponents to play catch-up while also being vulnerable to the pass. Just like London it’s a risky game but Josh Palmer and Keenan Allen had big matches last week while Christian Kirk also played in week 10, plus Zay Jones managed 10-8-68-0 in the same game.
Mary Start Tribute: DeMarcus Robinson, pal – As mentioned on waivers, maybe Robinson is the answer to Ravens receivers? Maybe the Jaguar match is the answer to what ails Lamar Jackson, too? Since Week 6 (five games), the Jaguars have given up seven double-digit points wide, including Michael Bateman and Paris Campbell (same game), Darius Slayton, Jerry Goody, and another fellow duo in Marquez, Valdes Scantling and Toni Cadarius. In Robinson’s two matches with eight and nine goals, he’s 6-for-64 (9.4 points) and 9-for-128 (17.3 points), respectively, so Jackson’s hoping to throw more his way.
Mary Start Tribute: Foster Morrow, LV – If no one has told you to start tight ends against the Seahawks yet, let’s get it right. Even if you subtract “tight ends” Taysom Hill against them, the Seahawks still allowed 10.4 FPPG to oppose tight ends while giving up their second-most receiving yards, plus five touchdowns. With Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow out of the lineup, Moreau has an upside for TE1 if he can repeat his Week 10 performance (3-43-1 looks pretty easy this week).
Fun with ranking!
Top 10 Thanksgiving side dishes
It’s Food Week again… well, of course with Thanksgiving here. And I’ve already ranked the best of Thanksgiving, so it’s time for the worst!
- Ambrosia salad – I don’t know what the unicorn fairy who was banished to hell thought, but this fruit is nightmare fuel.
- authority, authority – Salad? Who is trying to eat healthy on Thanksgiving or wants to kill time with a salad to start? Just get the good stuff!
- Vegetable tray ready – the laziest side dish – aka your lame friend who’s spent five minutes and a buck to make his “contribution to the party”… which he doesn’t even eat while gobbling down all the good stuff – and you have that.
- soup – Like salads, why waste time with pre-meal items. Nobody is sick. Keep your watery food out of the way this Thanksgiving!
- coleslaw – I love coleslaw, but it has no place and has nothing to do with Thanksgiving.
- Creamed spinach – Is this a dip? It’s not a side dish, that’s for sure. It’s more like when my dog eats pieces of green toy and vomits them up.
- Cranberry sauce – This will get the most hate because I know many who absolutely love this red, jelly-like “fruit”.
- corn Corn in the cup? surely. But that’s the grilling/cooking side. Corn chunks, or even worse…in candy…gross.
- Sweet Potato Casserole – Let’s add another kind of mashed potato but one with an almost gooey texture and then put marshmallows on top? This is not pills or a campfire. Note: I actually like sweet potato slices with syrup/brown sugar (no marshmallows). I guess that’s technically a sweet potato?
- Green bean casserole How can we make green beans worse? Put soup on them! Creamy – often mushroom – soup and crunchy onions make it even better? yeah.
