Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 12: Jonas Gray

Jonas Gray is everbody's favorite pickup. Should you unleash him in your fantasy lineup this week?

"Funny what seven days can change ... It was all good just a week ago." Jay-Z wasn't talking about fantasy football or the New England Patriots, but that lyric perfectly describes running back Jonas Gray.

Last Sunday, we were all talking about him being the fantasy football savior. He was the hottest pickup of the week after a 201-yard, four-score game and didn't have much competition behind him. Now, the Patriots added LeGarrette Blount to help and he seems like a lock to take carries away from him.

On top of that, Gray did not set his alarm for practice on Friday and he was sent home. Gray later had a tweet about people turning his back on him, but it was deleted. Basically, he's in the doghouse and a Patriots doghouse is one of the worst out there.

Fantasy impact: He has a bad matchup anyway, so there is no way you can play him. He should be owned in almost all leagues, though.
