Week 12 presents a bittersweet situation for fantasy football owners. On one hand, it marks the end of those pesky bye weeks, alleviating the stress of realizing that half your lineup is somewhere in Cabo for the weekend. But with the Eagles, Seahawks, Bengals and Bills off, that makes for a lot of useful idle players—especially bad news for those A.J. Green and Marshawn Lynch owners battling for a playoff spot.
Then again, with the likes of Bobby Rainey and Michael Floyd topping the scoring charts, who knows where the next breakout performance will come from. Presumably, you'll be wise enough to start Calvin Johnson, but which less-obvious players should dominate next week?
Here's an early look at the top five projected scorers at each position, with stat lines and analysis for everyone from Johnson and Johnson (the receivers, not the pharmaceutical company) to Gronk and Graham.
