The Falcons travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in a Week 12 divisional matchup. Fantasy football playoffs are approaching, which means every week is a vital matchup. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 12, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.
The Falcons are coming off a bad game with Matt Ryan throwing five interceptions and failing to convert any TDs. This was Matty Ice's second game in three weeks without a TD, so his fantasy value is dropping from the sky-high neighborhood from the first half. He'll be a must-start option against the Bucs.
Michael Turner has cooled off and is averaging a pathetic 2.2 YPC in his last two games. He's going to be tough to start against a great Tampa Bay run D. Lavonte David and Mark Barron have been difference makers for the young unit.
The Bucs offense has been clicking lately and they've scored 32 points per game in their last six contests. The Bucs should have success at running the rock on a weak Falcons D that ranks 27th in rushing yards per game. You're obviously starting Doug Martin.
Josh Freeman and the Bucs should be in shootout with the high-powered Falcons. Freeman isn't a must-start option, but he'll offer tons of upside with Vincent Jackson and Mike Wiliams stretching the field.
