Fantasy Football Week 12 Sleepers: Joe Flacco, Isaiah Crowell and others

Ray takes a look at some Week 12 sleepers that could help you win your fantasy matchup this week, including Joe Flacco, Malcolm Floyd and others.

This weekly feature will take a look at some sleepers at each position who could help fantasy teams win their weekly matchup. To determine the sleepers, I will be using the fantasy points allowed at each position statistics, courtesy of AsktheCommish.com.

For week 12, I will use the fantasy points allowed this season, so we are getting a good idea as to which team defenses are allowing the most fantasy points at each position.

Teams on bye: Steelers and Panthers

Sleeper Performance: Week 11

Quarterback:

Teddy Bridgewater - Vikings vs Bears - 18-28, 158 yards, TD, INT

Others:

Colin Kaepernick - 49ers vs Giants - 15-29, 193 yards, TD, 8 rushes, 24 yards

Running Back:

Frank Gore - 49ers vs Giants - 19 rushes, 95 yards, 0 TDs

Others:

Jonathan Stewart - Panthers vs Falcons - 7 rushes, 24 yards, 0 TDs

Wide Receiver:

Roddy White - Falcons vs Panthers - 8 receptions, 75 yards, TD

Others:

Pierre Garcon - Redskins vs Buccaneers - 1 reception, 6 yards, 0 TDs

Tight End:

Fantasy Points Allowed: Year to Date

Below you will find a table (courtesy of Ask the Commish) that lists, by team defense, the fantasy points each team defense has allowed to opposing quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.

I have selected my sleeper picks based on the fantasy points allowed through the first 11 weeks of the season, assuming the trend (allowing more fantasy points) continues.

Week 12 Sleepers

Quarterback

Joe Flacco, Ravens at Saints

The Saints defense has given up the 27th most fantasy points to opposing QBs thus far, and Monday Night's game could turn into a high scoring affair, so I can see Flacco tossing 2-3 TD passes.

Other QBs I like Kyle Orton, Bills vs Jets

Running Back

Isaiah Crowell, Browns vs Falcons

Crowell appears to be the favorite to see more carries in the Browns backfield now that they team has waived RB Ben Tate. He could put up a solid effort on Sunday against the Falcons, as their defense ranks 31st in fantasy points allowed to RBs this season.

Other RBs I like: Kmile Davis, Chiefs vs Raiders

Wide Receiver

Malcolm Floyd, Chargers vs Rams

The Rams defense ranks 30th in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers this season, and Floyd is QB Philip Rivers favorite target, so he could see the end zone once again, after scoring in Week 11.

Other WRs I like: Mohamed Sanu, Bengals vs Texans

Tight End

Scott Chandler, Bills vs Jets
