Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em, Week 12: Thanksgiving Day Games

Looking for an advantage in fantasy football on Turkey Day? We got a Thanksgiving edition of Start 'Em Sit 'Em.

There are three games to work from on Thanksgiving; that could potentially be a lot of players to make start/sit decisions about. Never fear, we're here to help. There's no better feeling than starting a player in a Thursday game and having him come up aces while you race out to a lead on your opponent. Then again, if you bomb on Thursday, the pain of having that dud score through the next few days and into the weekend can drive a fantasy owner mad. At least you should have some family and friends around, plus plenty of leftover turkey, to get over it.

We checked in with our friends over at PlayThisGuy.com and they sent us a consensus Start 'Em Sit 'Em list for the slate of three games on Thursday. They skipped over obvious choices, guys so good you can't bench them, or guys so bad you can't play them, and stuck to the middle ground, the gray area that we all fret about each week. They surveyed fantasy experts around the web, and here are the results.
