My 2009 NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football Projections and Predictions start with a huge fantasy game on Monday night. The Patriots face the Saints in what could be one of the most outstanding offensive showdowns in Monday night history. It certainly has all the ingredients of an incredibly fast paced offensive battle.
Drew Brees will continue to be a fantasy stud during week 12. Brees passes for 325 yards and 3 scores or more. My fantasy football projections and predictions for Tom Brady aren’t bad either. Brady puts up 345 yards and 2 scores or more in this crazy cajun duel. The only thing that could slow this game down is some bad spicy food.
My other projections and predictions for quarterbacks during week 12 of the 2009 NFL season? Surprise, surprise, I like Peyton Manning to do well on the road at Houston. Peyton will shake off a relatively slow fantasy week against Baltimore and have 3 touchdowns and 315 yards passing against the Texans. I think Aaron Rodgers is just beginning to find himself in Green Bay and that means bad news for the Lions. Rodgers with 289 yards passing and 4 touchdowns during week 12 of the 2009 Fantasy Football schedule. I project Tony Romo to have an equally impressive day. Romo with 304 yards and 4 touchdowns against the visiting Raiders on Turkey Day.
Who won’t have big days? I don’t particularly like Eli Manning against the Broncos but he’ll do okay. 225 yards and 1-2 touchdowns. Donovan McNabb could bust out with another huge day for Philadelphia but I don’t think it will be too much above average. 265 yards and 2 scores as the Eagles run the ball well instead.
My 2009 NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football projections and predictions continue with running backs. Knowshon Moreno will have a big game despite a loss for Denver. Moreno is the man now in Denver and he’ll prove it with 110 yards and 2 touchdowns in his biggest game to date. I also like Chris Johnson against Arizona with 134 yards and 1 score. Adrian Peterson could run completely wild against the visiting Bears with 178 yards and 2 scores or more.
Receivers I really like for the 2009 NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football projections and predictions? Austin Miles of the Cowboys could have a monster Thanksgiving day. 102 yards and 2 scores for Austin. I also like Donald Driver to bust out a mini-slump with 2 touchdowns and 89 yards. Reggie Wayne could put up monster numbers in Houston with 134 yards and 2 TD’s. Sidney Rice will be tough to contain for the Bears with 98 yards and 1 score or more.
Defenses that are no brainers during Week 12 of the Fantasy Football schedule? Cowboys against the Raiders is an absolute lock. If you don’t have them and if they are available it might be one fantastic pickup. Cincinnati hosting Cleveland is another absolute no brainer. The Bengals might even pitch a shutout but I’d bet more 4-5 turnovers and possibly a return touchdown to get you some fantasy football points during Week 12 of the 2009 NFL season.
That’s it for the my 2009 NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football Projections and Predictions. We’ll do it all again next week with Week 13 Projections and Predictions.
