NFL Fantasy Week 12 Buy or Sell Trade Targets

We are back with our NFL Fantasy Week 12 Buy or Sell Trade Targets!

The NFL still refuses to let us know who the best team in the league is, with everyone seemingly beating everyone.

And Week 12 officially feels like the beginning of fantasy NFL silly season, as injuries, schedules and opportunities for otherwise unknown players open up on teams looking to the future.

This is the kind of week where if you’re chasing the playoffs, you’re seriously considering Ty Johnson and Dontrell Hilliard for Deandre Hopkins or Alvin Kamara, just to give you a fighting chance at avoiding the dreaded consolation bracket.

This is the kind of week where you’re picking up three DSTs to ensure you’re facing the Lions three weeks in a row, picking off Jared Goff or Tim Boyle for the remainder of the regular season.

Enjoy it while it lasts folks as it’s coming to an end very soon. Thanksgiving is already here and we’re being treated to Trevor Siemian, Andy Dalton and potentially Tim Boyle. What a time to be alive!

Here’s my NFL Fantasy Football Week 12 Buy or Sell Trade Targets:

NFL Fantasy Week 12 Trade Targets to BUY

Jalen Hurts (QB – Philadelphia Eagles)

Hurts has developed into possibly the most consistent fantasy QB in the game.

The Eagles coaching staff have finally found their identity – run the ball over and over again with Hurts or Sanders, then throw it to Devonta Smith or Dallas Goedert in between. And to be fair, it works. The O line is playing lights out, creating time to pass and holes to run through. The Eagles are a team on the rise and are looking to push Dallas for the top spot in the NFC East.

In 15 career games, he’s finished outside the top 12 fantasy qbs just twice. In games he’s started and finished, he’s been a fantasy QB1 every single time.

He is also 10th in the league with 618 rushing yards and 5th with 8 rushing touchdowns. The passing stats leave a lot to be desired, but it doesn’t need to be any more than average, which it is – 18th in the league with 2,306 passing yards, along with 13 passing touchdowns and just 5 interceptions.

And then the icing on the cherry on top of the cake – over the remainder of the fantasy season Hurts gets to face NYG twice, WFT twice and NYJ. He has a week 14 bye, but what he’ll do for you in the fantasy playoffs and in the next two weeks will either save you from impending doom or help clinch you a title.

Even after his week 11 explosion for 3 rushing touchdowns, he’s still not being talked about or valued nearly enough. I would swap any QB straight up for him at this point.

Alvin Kamara (RB – New Orleans Saints)

If your situation is already set – in the playoffs or can’t make it, I like the idea of buying Kamara now for a roster who needs instant impact.

It’s a risky situation considering he hasn’t practiced in well over a week, but the Saints need Kamara back for their wildcard push. And you can be guaranteed of the volume and upside he’s going to offer your roster for the fantasy playoffs if he were to return by then, which we are assuming he will.

This is completely dependent on the Kamara owner in your league being in the right situation to trade away, but if you have the depth, go and offer an RB2 like Josh Jacobs or Melvin Gordon plus a flex level play and see what you can get.

De’Andre Swift (RB – Detroit Lions)

Was on my list last week, but he’s still a buy as it still feels like he’s being criminally underrated. I’d swap him straight up for Aaron Jones & AJ Dillon, Alvin Kamara or Ezekiel Elliot.

George Kittle (TE – San Francisco 49ers)

Another one on my list last week, scored a touchdown for the third straight week in week 11 and shows no sign of slowing down with Jimmy Garoppolo playing well recently. Try and acquire him for Kyle Pitts/Hunter Henry/T.J. Hockenson + a flex play and enjoy reliable, elite TE1 production down the stretch.

NFL Fantasy Week 12 Trade Targets to SELL

Russell Wilson (QB – Seattle Seahawks)

This Seahawks team sucks. The offence sucks, the defence sucks. They’re now 3-7 on a sinking, or possible already sunken ship. Carson is out for the year so the run game looks non-existent. And the rumours of Russell Wilson already half way out the door are building some steam. Pete Carroll recently came out to the press saying this is the most frustrated he’s been as Seahawks coach.

I believe this is the end for this Seahawks era and that it’s very possible Wilson and Carroll both walk after 2021. And you can almost feel this on the field, it’s soulless.

Wilson looks totally shot since returning from his thumb injury and it’s possible he was rushed back too quickly.

If you have him on your roster, it’s likely you’re struggling at QB so just try and flip Wilson on name basis, plus something else for a more reliable fantasy QB.

AJ Brown (WR – Tennessee Titans)

AJ Brown has been incredibly up and down this season, with knocks and injuries seemingly occurring weekly. Along with the impact of Derrick Henry going down for the year has on the team’s overall offence – Henry provides so much for the play action passing game, and it showed this week with Tannehill looking totally lost against a woeful Texans defence, throwing 4 picks.

Brown hasn’t gone for over 50 yards receiving in three weeks, and has only done so twice this season in 10 games. With Derrick Henry and Julio Jones out, opposing defences can afford to double or even triple cover him to make Tannehill throw to the likes of Geoff Swaim or Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. On top of that, Brown gets a matchup with NE this week who famously take away opposition WR1s, followed by a bye week, so the chances of Brown helping your roster the next two weeks is very slim.

Depending on your roster situation, I like the idea of trading Brown away for a WR2 + RB2/3 or straight up for someone with a lower ceiling but high floor like Keenan Allen, Adam Thielen or Diontae Johnson.

Mike Williams (WR – LA Chargers)

Was on my sell list last week and Williams proceeded to pop off this week for a nice game. But I’d still look into selling him, despite the strong game and Herbert looking back to early season form.

He’s still ranking inside the top 10 fantasy WRs on total points due to his early season flurry and if you can turn his inconsistent play into someone like the guys mentioned above – Allen, Thielen or Johnson, I would certainly do that.
