lucky: Who's your pick to be the biggest fantasy flop this weekend?

Who's your pick to be the biggest fantasy flop this weekend?

Sando: Bridgewater is my tentative choice, but there are interesting dynamics to consider. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur appears to be in line for a head-coaching job. If Shurmur stays, Keenum could be more likely to return as the starter,

unless Keenum falls off sharply down the stretch. Under that scenario, the team could draft its quarterback of the future while sticking Authentic Pharoh Cooper Jersey with Keenum in the meantime. If Shurmur leaves, the team could be more likely to fall back on Bridgewater, with Keenum leaving in free agency.

Seifert: Bridgewater. I wouldn't be surprised if Bridgewater finishes this season as their quarterback. Coach Mike Zimmer loves Bridgewater the way a father loves his son and is itching to get him back into the lineup. The Vikings are wisely riding Keenum's strong play, but as long as Zimmer is the coach, it's difficult to imagine Budda Baker Authentic Jersey them committing to him this offseason rather than reanointing Bridgewater.

Bowen: Joe Mixon, RB, Bengals. The Bengals rookie is coming off his best day as a pro, rushing /a> for 114 yards on 23 carries (5.0 yards per carry) and adding another 51 yards receiving in the Week 12 win over the Browns. With a matchup against a Steelers defense that ranks No. 9 in fantasy scoring versus opposing running backs (allowing an average of 22.0 points per game), Jeremy Lane Jersey however, look for Mixon to put up low-end RB2 numbers.

Clay: Sammy Watkins, WR, Rams. Watkins is coming off his best game with L.A., but the success figures to be short-lived. With Robert Woods sidelined against the Saints, Watkins handled a season-high nine targets and caught four for 82 yards and a score. That would be enough to vault him into the WR2 discussion most weeks Woods is sidelined, but with shadow coverage via Patrick Peterson on tap in

Week 13, Watkins should be on benches. Peterson shadowed Watkins roughly half the time when these teams met in Week 7. Watkins produced one catch for 12 yards against Peterson and two catches for 30 yards away from his coverage.

Foxworth: Cam Newton, QB, Panthers. Cam's running ability and red zone versatility normally makes him a pretty reliable fantasy player, with the possibility for huge games when the passing game clicks. But the Saints played him tough earlier in the year while holding him to his lowest fantasy total of the season. The weakness of the Saints' defense is the injured secondary, but the Panthers' offensive weakness is their passing game and receivers.

Sando: Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions. Stafford heads on the road against a Baltimore defense that ranks second in fantasy points per game allowed to quarterbacks. He's also dealing with an ankle injury suffered against Minnesota on Thanksgiving.

Seifert: Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions. Stafford has an admirable history of toughing out injuries, but his performance has usually suffered when he has. We saw that with a 2009 shoulder injury, a 2011 finger /a> injury and another finger injury in 2016. A leg injury would seem to affect his throwing less than the shoulder or finger, but it still impacts mobility and will allow the Ravens to focus their pass rush on the pocket.

Bowen: The Saints. The remaining schedule for New Orleans is pretty salty with a Week 13 game against the Panthers and two matchups with the Falcons. But I'm going with the physical, balanced offense under coach Sean Payton and a defense that can be ultra aggressive when cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley jump back into the mix.

Clay: The Saints. All three teams in this mix face a tough schedule over the final month or so of the /a> season, which makes this tricky, but I still project New Orleans to hang on for the title at 12-4. The offense has been outstanding as usual, and their defense is much-improved. The Falcons are the "hot" team in the division right now, but they face arguably the league's hardest schedule the rest of the season Joe Thornton Authentic Jersey -- Vikings, Saints (twice), at Buccaneers and Panthers. I believe that tough slate will cost them a playoff spot.

Foxworth: The Saints. Despite the Falcons' offensive reputation, the Saints lead the the division in almost all major offensive statistical categories and they have best quarterback and coach in the NFC South. Their defense, which has been one of the worst in the league over the past few years, has improved and is continuing to get better. /a> /a> /a> /a> /a> /a> /a>
