NFL Fantasy Football: 5 Players Set to Explode in Week 12

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistNovember 23, 2011

I like him if A.J. Green plays, but I love Jerome Simpson if Green is sidelined again.

Dalton has shown that he trusts him with the deep ball, proving so with a big performance over the Ravens last week. Simpson should be good for another few deep balls now that his chemistry with Dalton has improved and their first-round WR is dealing with an injury.

Marshawn Lynch has received at least 23 carries in each of his last three games. Add that to the near four yards he’s averaging per rush, and you’ve got an easy eight or nine points. But at home versus the Redskins, Lynch should be getting at least 25 carries and I see him getting back into the end zone.

Matt Ryan has been simply ice cold in the second half. He’s averaging 314 yards passing and two touchdowns over his last three games. Already he’s an easy start, but as an added bonus he gets to go up against the Vikes who give up more points to QBs than any other team.

Watch 5 Players Set to Explode to see who else is ready to breakout in Week 12.
