Fantasy Football: 3 Bold Predictions for Week 12
We got another one folks!
The Houston D/ST did indeed finish as Week 11's top fantasy defense on the back of Justin Reid's fantastic 101-yard interception return touchdown. They consistently got to the quarterback like we predicted, locking in five sacks, and forced two turnovers. Without the touchdown they would still have been a decent play, but that score put them right at the top of the leaderboard.
Our other predictions didn't go as well. Dak Prescott didn't meet the lofty expectations we had for him -- he finished outside the top 12 quarterbacks with just 14.8 fantasy points. John Ross had the opportunity and even scored, but couldn't put up more than 27 yards. Vance McDonald also scored, which was one half of our prediction, but he couldn't outpace Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster's big yardage numbers in the comeback victory.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams played the game of the year. They scored an incredible 105 combined points, just one shy of the record we were looking for them to beat. We missed on that prediction, but the game was so amazing we can't really feel bad about that one.
This week we're bringing another set of predictions to the table. We're keeping it a little shorter than usual this week -- spend some time with your families! -- but here are three bold predictions for Week 12.
