Finally, full rosters for all with the bye weeks now behind us. Its time to make a playoff run, both real and fantasy and owners will be plugging in stars that enjoyed week 11 on bye. Some of the stars expected back in fantasy lineups include, Percy Harvin (healthy?), Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Sidney Rice, Kenny Britt and more. While the bye weeks are behind us, keep an eye on multiple Thursday games, Saturday games coming soon and the usual Sunday and Monday prime time action.
Without a doubt, receivers are having a bigger impact than ever in fantasy football. With rules favoring the passing game, some of the biggest numbers are coming from wide outs. With so many running backs being handled by committee, it’s almost a necessity to fill your flex position with a receiver. Good luck to those in the playoffs and those making a final push.
An outstanding week for receivers in the NFL with no fewer than thirteen wide outs targeted ten or more times. While many familiar names populate the leaders, many new faces making the most of their opportunity or at least a major part of their team’s game plan. This comes on a week with historically solid passing teams like New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Houston and Indianapolis were on a bye week.
