Fantasy Football Week 12 IDP Rankings

Welcome back, ID people. We're back early because of the holiday weekend. Is there any holiday better than Thanksgiving? It has always been my favorite holiday even before I found out Santa Claus wasn't real (and I'm not even from Philly). Football fanatics will literally have an entire day of football since many will have their Turkey Bowls followed by back-to-back-to-back NFL games with five of the six very much in contention for the playoffs. Personally, I'm playing at 7:30 in the morning because I refuse to miss a minute of the Packers-Lions game. It's the best slate of games we've ever had on Thanksgiving and it obviously helps that the Lions are actually good this year. As for IDP, the day games should see a lot of passing, so you'll see a lot of defensive backs from those two games in the rankings. The night game should be a good ol' fashion slug fest. Don't eat too much and I'll spare you of the lame amino acid joke involving tryptophan. We're also going to be previewing the games by breaking down all the important players on offense. From Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson all the way down to Brian Hartline and Delanie Walker.
