Fantasy Cheat Sheet: Week 12
A week's worth of advice to help you make your last-minute moves
It was a good night for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham owners Thursday, as those heavy hitters once again delivered major fantasy points. It's always nice to bank some points on the score sheet before Sunday's onslaught.
The trend of no major surprises continued elsewhere in Thursday's contest -- middling production for Steven Jackson and Pierre Thomas -- so let's jump right into the greatest hits from the week of fantasy football content at ESPN Insider.
Bet you thought we couldn't come up with another new fantasy column idea. Well, this week marks the debut of Tom Carpenter's "Fantasy Checkdown" over in the Rumor Central neighborhood. Front and center in Tom's analysis this week is what to do with Brady and Co. as they square off with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Not only is Denver giving up some big games to opponents this season, but there's always something extra on the line when these two quarterbacks match up. If you had any inklings of benching Brady, forget about it.
To read more fantasy advice, including which players you should start and which you should avoid in Week 12, you must be an ESPN Insider.
