Last-Minute Fantasy Football Advice for Every Position for Week 12
As we enter the latter stages of the fantasy football regular season, your team is either in the playoffs, in the hunt or totally out of it. Either way, it's still always nice to get another positive in the win column, whether you're playing for the playoffs or just for pride.
Hopefully, everyone reading at least has a chance to make the playoffs. So, if you do, here are a few last-minute tips to help you get the W this week.
1. Start QB Andy Dalton

Andy Dalton's had a nice fantasy season up to this point. For those who have an injured QB and need a good fill-in, Dalton is a good option to look at. He is a top-10 fantasy QB at the moment and has a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders.
If your QB has a tough matchup and you have Dalton on your bench, consider giving him the start this week. He has a chance to put up good numbers.
2. Start RB C.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller started off the season on an absolute tear. He's slowed down somewhat recently, but is still an excellent fantasy RB.
He's got a great matchup this week against Indy and is a 100 percent start, worthy of an RB1 designation.
Look for Spiller to have an enormous game on Sunday.
3. Start WR Randall Cobb

Randall Cobb is rapidly becoming an elite fantasy football wide receiver. Due to Greg Jennings' injury woes, Cobb has emerged as Aaron Rodgers' go-to option, and it's paid off.
Cobb has been absolutely terrific, and he should continue his ascent to fantasy stardom this week against the Giants.
Cobb's going to easily get into the double digits in targets. Anytime you get a player with that many looks, he's got a shot to break out and have a monster game.
4. Start TE Vernon Davis

Vernon Davis had a monster game on Monday night, and with Colin Kaepernick appearing to be set to start going forward, Davis should continue to have fantasy success. They appear to have a nice rapport with one another, and hopefully for Davis owners, that will continue.
Combine this with Davis' stellar matchup with the New Orleans Saints, who've given up the most points to TEs over the past month, and Davis has a recipe for success. He has everything going for him this week and is an absolute must-start.
