Fantasy Football Sneaky Starts: Week 12

D. Brown

As injuries pile up and the bye weeks continue, all but the luckiest fantasy owners will at some point need to find the proverbial diamond in the rough: a waiver wire or bench player who is capable of putting up some points in a pinch. This weekly feature is dedicated to that part of fantasy football. It's not pretty, but it's part of the game. 
Here's a look at the sneakiest QB, RB, WR and TE plays for Week 12...
Note: Matchups are important, and we use by-position Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed to evaluate those matchups. For an overview, click here.


Andy Dalton, Bengals (vs. CLE)
The Browns aren't a great matchup, but Dalton has proven he doesn't need a great matchup to post good fantasy numbers. He has eight TDs in his last four games.
Sam Bradford, Rams (vs. ARI)
This has been one ugly season for Sam Bradford, but the good news is that he has a matchup with the Cardinals (who have allowed the Xth-most Adjusted FP to QBs this season) and he is developing a nice rapport with Brandon Lloyd.
