Which battles should be catching your eye for Week 12 of the fantasy
|Eddie Royal, WR, DEN vs. Jerraud Powers and Jacob Lacey, CBs, IND
||Either as Z or in slot, Royal has a solid chance of picking up Brandon Marshall's scraps; IND speed rush could mean ample quick passes
|Sammy Morris, RB, NE vs. Carolina Panthers run defense
||CAR still a sieve, Morris quickly eating into fumble-happy Laurence Maroney's work; Pats need vet leadership - enter flex-worthy Morris.
|Devin Thomas, WR, WAS vs. Chris X. Johnson, CB, OAK
||DT (their new No. 1?) broke out last week, and the non-Nnamdi Asomugha assignment is typically fantasy gold vs. OAK
|Josh Morgan, WR, SF vs. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, ARI
||Cards giving up ample points to WRs; spread offense keeping Morgan involved - expect Alex D. Smith to be launching often
|Zach X. Miller, TE, JAC vs. Miami Dolphins pass defense
||Deep, DEEP alert: Jags like Miller's TE speed, route-running smarts - they want him involved; Dolphins struggle to contain this position
