NFL Bye Week Blues: Week 12 Options

Not much to be thankful for this week if your fantasy team has been relying on Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill all season. Maybe it’s a good thing that these guys have Thanksgiving weekend to rest up a few weeks before the fantasy playoffs begin, but fantasy managers still must deal with a bye week that sees some of fantasy’s brightest stars on the bench.

Week 12 byes: Cardinals, Chiefs

What you’re missing

Cardinals: Even though he’s missed time due to injury, Kyler Murray remains eighth in FPPG among quarterbacks. Running back James Conner is 11th among running backs, though his value is greater than that now that Chase Edmonds is out. Conner entered Week 11, leading the NFL with 11 rushing touchdowns and will continue to be the Cardinals’ bell cow. With injuries to receivers DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, Christian Kirk has become a viable fantasy option. Kirk started Week 11 with more fantasy points this season than the likes of Amari Cooper and Diontae Johnson.
