Week 12 Cheat Sheet

Each week, the cheat sheet combs through the choicest Insider fantasy advice to provide owners with last-minute roster advice for the weekend. Here is this week's edition:

Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers: Newton has hit a bit of a sophomore skid in 2012 -- especially within the fantasy football realm -- which has meant that he's been benched in some standard, one-QB leagues. In his "Four Downs" column this week, Eric Karabell argues that Newton should be activated for Week 12. The Panthers have the Philadelphia Eagles in the Monday night game this week, and Philly has been quite hospitable to opposing QBs as of late, including 32 points (in standard ESPN scoring) to Robert Griffin III in Week 11.
