Tight End
Fantasy Gem- Jason Witten @ New York Giants Jason Witten is a must start this week at Tight End and I think he will be the highest scoring Tight End in Week 12. Witten and Romo have a great relationship on the field and it shows when the play. This is a big game against a divisional opponent

Fantasy Sleeper- Coby Fleener @ Arizona Cardinals. Fleener has definitely flourished in the TE role this year after a bit of a disappointing rookie year. He has established himself as one of the top TE options, fantasy wise, in the entire league. The matchup also bodes well for him as Arizona has surrendered the most points to TE’s in nearly every offensive category. IF you have Fleener, he is definitely a sleeper against an otherwise great Cardinal defense.

Fantasy Gem- Nick Folk @ Baltimore Ravens. After missing his first kick of the year last week in Buffalo, Nick Folk is got a great match up this week. The Baltimore Raven Defense isn’t what it was in years prior

with Ray Lewis & Ed Reed in their primes. The Jets will get more than their share of opportunities to get in scoring range this week. Nick Folk should be the beneficiary of these opportunities this week in Baltimore. One thing to consider though, there is a big storm set to hit the east coast this weekend. We see how that wind affected Folk’s first FG attempt last week in Buffalo.

Fantasy Sleeper- Mason Crosby vs Minnesota Vikings. Mason Crosby is having a bounce back year after having a bit of a down year last year. It is true that without Aaron Rodgers, Mason Crosby isn’t the same kicker. What would you expect? He just isn’t getting as many opportunities as he was before. Regardless of the fact, Tolzien has operated well within their offensive system, and against a porous Vikings defense, Crosby will be a nice sleeper for the kickers this week.

Defense/Special Teams
Fantasy Gem- Baltimore Ravens vs. New York Jets. As much as this saddens me to write, the Baltimore Ravens are my DST fantasy gem this week. In a nutshell, the Jets have not done well on the road this season. They have no real weapons on the offensive side of the ball and they are starting a rookie quarterback. This hurts to say as a Jet fan but I believe that the Ravens will feast upon the NY Jets offense.

Fantasy Sleeper- New York Jets @ Baltimore Ravens. Conversely, The Ravens offense has been flat out terrible this year. This is magnified because they are coming off of not only a Super Bowl win, but giving Joe Flacco a huge contract. Ray Rice has been nonexistent this year and Torrey Smith has been the only consistent threat downfield. Also, the Ravens offensive line has been a sieve. The strong point of the NY Jets defense is its defense line so I look for the Jets to dominate in the trenches.
