If ever there was a week to explore some intriguing breakout fantasy football performers in the NFL, it was Week 12.
Not only did we see some huge performances from surprising players, but with the fantasy playoffs approaching, owners are now looking to bolster their squads to make the playoffs or reinforce their teams in what they hope will be a championship campaign.
That means every waiver-wire move is vital, each claim must be carefully considered, and falling for fool's gold—or as I like to call it, Nick Foles Gold—can be the difference between glory and agony.
So with that in mind, I present Week 12's "Fact or Fiction," an examination of those performances that were a sign of great things to come and those which were a mirage that will have fantasy owners splashing sand into their mouths.
Choose wisely, my friends. And may this slideshow guide you on your journey. (Somebody cue the dramatic music.)
