DZ – Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire
With a big Week 12 getting starting on Thursday afternoon, you are gonna have some early decisions to make. Can Tom Brady continue to lead the Pats to victory with even more injuries at WR? Hmmmm…can you really continue to start A.J. Green? With Romo back under center, who on Dallas’ offense will come alive? Just some food for thought…..
Year after year, Brady’s Bunch continue to put up great numbers on offense. This week may be a bit more challenging? With Edelman already injured, Monday night made things even worse. The Pats Offense took another big hit when they lost Amendola and Dobson. These injuries significantly impacted Gronk’s production. He only managed 2 receptions for 37 yards. Teams may now find it easier to neutralize Gronk, with Brady not having a slot receiver to beat the blitz with. You may see a heavy RB day for the Pats Offense.
A.J. Green/WR /Bengals
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….he’s just a AVERAGE FF WR!!! Green hasn’t posted more than 9 FF points in his last 3 games. End zone…..yea right, he hasn’t been there since week 8. This week the Bengals get the Rams. The Rams D has only allowed 3 TDS to WR’S in 9 games this season. I think Green will again, just have a average day at the office. The frustration will continue!
With such a long layoff, Romo looked pretty damn good. Romo threw for 227 yards and 2 TDS. This week will be a tough test for sure as he will face a nasty Carolina D. Look for stud CB, Josh Norman to match up with Dez most of the time. This is where I think you will see WR Terrance Williams pick up where he left off last week. He will draw a more favorable match up than Dez and should produce a similar stat line as last week (4-79-1TD).
