This is week 12 and you are fighting to get into your fantasy playoffs.  So you are going to need your studs to be studly and your sleepers to wake the frig up!!!

Here is a little help on who to start to get you into that fantasy playoff spot:

Myles Jack, Linebacker Jacksonville Jaguars

Yes, the Jacksonville Jaguars defense is disappointing.  And okay, Myles Jack has led the downhill decline with his pedestrian stat line.

Stats: 56 total tackles, 1 sack, 3. quarterback hurries, 1 pass defended, 1 interception, 1 touchdown

Yet this week the Jaguars play the Buffalo Bills.  Not only is Josh Allen going to be under center for the Bills for the game, but all year Buffalo has been the destination linebackers go to get rejuvenated.  For the year, linebackers are averaging a little over 26 tackles per game and close to two sacks per game against the Bills.

Look for Jack to get back in your fantasy good graces.

Za’Darius Smith, Defensive Line, Baltimore Ravens

Stats: 30 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, 16.5 quarterback hurries, 2 passes defended, 1 forced fumble

Speaking of peak destinations for defensive minded people, the Baltimore Ravens play the Oakland Raiders this week.  The Raiders have given up multiple sacks to less talented teams, including eight sacks to the San Francisco 49ers defense, and six sacks to the Seattle Seahawks defense.

The Ravens are rated in the top ten for defensive sacks.  So…party at Carr’s?

Jaquiski Tartt, Defensive Back, San Francisco 49ers

(Caveat: pending status of his injured shoulder)

The San Francisco 49ers were on a bye week 11, which allowed Jaquiski Tartt time to mend.  All indications are that he will play.  If he does, this game is just what the doctor ordered.

The revolving door that is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterbacks situation has currently allowed Jameis Winston once again to step on in.  This season Winston has tossed eight touchdowns to 11 interceptions.  It is a fair bet that there are more interceptions coming this week.  And oh yeah, as an added bonus, the Buccaneers have allowed 27.8 tackles per game to the secondaries of opposing teams.

Yep, welcome back Tartt.

As always Good Luck!
