Thursday Night Football Preview, Fantasy Tips, DFS & Best Bets

Traditionally the Week 12 slate has always been one of the most anticipated of the season. In many leagues, Week 12 marks the trade deadline, but normally falling on Thanksgiving, it also means an entire Thursday filled with food, family, friends, and football.

With three games filling up the entire day, we must take a different approach in our usual Thursday Night Football preview. For this week, I’ll take a broad look at all three games and make my favorite picks for each game.

Things haven’t been easy this year, so please take the time to be appreciative for what you still have, and the things that truly matter in life besides football. We wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings and hope you’re able to enjoy a full day’s worth of pigskin with those that mean the most.

Chicago Bears (-3) at Detroit Lions; over/under 41

The opening game of the slate isn’t exactly the most desirable, but there’s still plenty of fantasy ramifications on the line. Rumors are swirling that this could be Matt Nagy’s last game of the helm for Chicago, but it seems odd to let a coach prepare a team to play if his fate’s already decided and the team is still technically in the playoff hunt. It would also go against the 100-plus year history of the franchise never dismissing a coach mid-season.

Detroit won’t part ways with Dan Campbell this week but the league’s only winless team still has plenty of questions- like who will be under center?

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 12

Traditionally, Week 12 means a fantastic week filled with family, friends, food, and lots of football. With a full slate of three Thursday games, plus a pair of loaded rosters from the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs unavailable due to the bye week, the Week 12 waiver wire might be the most important run […]

Traditionally, Week 12 means a fantastic week filled with family, friends, food, and lots of football.

With a full slate of three Thursday games, plus a pair of loaded rosters from the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs unavailable due to the bye week, the Week 12 waiver wire might be the most important run of the year.

Here are the top free agents to target ahead of Week 12 and how much of your remaining FAAB to use. And Happy Thanksgiving!

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

Ty Johnson (RB) New York Jets (15% FAAB) – Before Week 11, when the bottom fell out, Ty Johnson already had standalone value playing nearly 40% of New York’s snaps and averaging nearly four targets per game. Now, with rookie Michael Carter expected to miss multiple weeks with a sprained ankle, Johnson offers RB2 upside for the next several games and should see plenty of passes as well as carries. View Johnson as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues for the next few weeks and bid accordingly.

Cedrick Wilson (WR) Dallas Cowboys (8% FAAB) – With Amari Cooper (COVID) out and CeeDee Lamb (concussion) looking very unlikely on short rest, Wilson is in-line to be the Cowboy’s No 2 wideout on Thanksgiving and gets an appealing home matchup against a fading Las Vegas secondary that has allowed a league-worst six TD grabs to enemy wideouts over the past five weeks. Wilson will be on the Week 12 WR3 radar and is worth…
