Which battles should be catching your eye for Week 12 of the fantasy football slate?

Key Matchup Reason
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
