Fantasy Football Week 12: NFL Injury Updates, Start 'Em-Sit 'Em Advice and More

Fantasy Football Week 12 is underway.  We had three Thanksgiving Thursday games to enjoy this week, which means six teams are already hands-off when it comes to Sunday consideration for fantasy football.

For the first time this season, I don't have a quarterback decision to make for Sunday's games.  But plenty of lineup changes still need to be pondered.

Stay tuned for updates.


Vincent Jackson or DeSean Jackson?

This was the hardest roster decision I had to make this week.

Both are breakout receivers but VJax has the risk of being slow to adjust to the game after being out for 10 games. On the other hand, DJax faces a tough matchup against the Chicago Bears.

Although I don't ever endorse betting against Michael Vick, I am not too thrilled by DJax's possible output against Chicago.

I've been studying up on VJax and by most accounts from the San Diego Union-Tribune, he's been taking part in practice for three weeks and will be ready to play. 

The Chargers are still hurting at WR and this week will be without Patrick Crayton. Malcom Floyd made his return last weekend but was reportedly limited in practice this entire week.

Phillip Rivers should welcome Jackson back by throwing plenty of balls in his direction tonight.

I'm going with Jackson. VJ, that is.

Congratulations to all fantasy owners who have remained competitive and are still in contention for the fantasy playoffs.

Every week is a must-win situation.

As always, this blog will be here for your fantasy needs, so don't be afraid to shoot comments for fantasy assistance.

This list will be updated with Saturday evening/Sunday morning sit 'em, start 'em recommendations, as well as weather and injury news to make sure your fantasy team will be ready this weekend.
