Fantasy Tip: Fuller's 60 yards last week were his most since early October. That's a good sign, but you just can't trust him with Brock Osweiler throwing the ball. Starting Fuller this week is a risk despite the great matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Fiedorowicz has been one of the most unheralded tight end this year. Brock Osweiler has looked his way often and Fiedo hasn't disappointed. He's a borderline TE1 consideration for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay Packers rush defense has been more susceptible of late, but Miller could be limited this week if he's not fully healthy by game time. Even if he does see fewer touches, RB2 production is definitely still attainable.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller finished Week 12 with 60 yards, which was more than he had in the previous four games. He has been targeted at least six times in all but two games this season and can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 14:25:45 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Fiedorowicz has been targeted at least five of the last seven games but has posted at least 50 yards in only one of the last five games. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 14:15:09 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Miller should receive his normal workload in Week 13 despite his injuries. He has received at least 15 carries in each of his last four games but has been a bit inconsistent with his rushing yards over the last few weeks. Miller probably should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has had a good inaugural season with Houston, but he has been held in check many times, too. His Week 13 matchup against the Green Bay Packers is less than favorable and he should be considered as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has arguably been the worst quarterback in the NFL this season in his first year with the Texans. He just cannot succeed no matter what defense he's playing. It's probably safe to drop him, but keep him on the bench if dropping is too drastic.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller didn't have a great game, but that could all change in Week 13 against a beaten up Green Bay Packers secondary. Treat him as more of a WR3 for that matchup.
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:05:16 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins hasn't found the end zone in six games dating back to Week 5 in Minnesota, but the yardage total was his most since Week 6 and his third-highest total of the season. He has settled into more of a WR2 role for fantasy owners down the stretch, although he faces a favorable matchup in Week 13 against a beleaguered Green Bay pass defense.
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:04:50 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Miller will look to bounce back in Week 13 in Green Bay. While they have a strong rush defense, they're susceptible to the big play via the pass. Miller could have a big game catching the ball out of the backfield.
