My Superflex dynasty rankings for Week 12 were pretty straightforward this time around. As usual, most players stayed put, but since fantasy football is a game that’s always changing, we need to stay ahead of the curve where we can and see trends as they develop. When putting together my own 1QB dynasty rankings for this week, I looked at how team usage can dictate performance but also how injuries have impacted player expectations in some cases. Let’s get into it. Here are a couple of the guys whose spots changed for my Week 12 PPR dynasty rankings.
Superflex Dynasty Rankings Week 12 | Risers
QB – Russell Wilson +1
The only riser in my QB Superflex dynasty rankings this week is Seattle Seahawks signal-caller Russell Wilson. He’s just been too good to ignore lately, and as long as the team is winning, they should continue to “let Russ cook” as the season goes on. It’s highly possible that he’s competing with Patrick Mahomes for the QB1 spot in the coming months; he’s just been that good.
RB – Derrick Henry +1, Cylde Edwards-Helaire +1
Derrick Henry has been too much of a stud to keep outside my top four RBs in my 1QB dynasty rankings. The value at the top has never been bigger, but Henry is quietly becoming a can’t miss fantasy asset. He’s easily worth a top-four pick at the moment, and I don’t see him falling at all soon.
CEH has been a tough one for me. I’ve written before that I think Jonathan Taylor was the best RB in the class, but with the Kansas City Chiefs selecting CEH at the end of the first and him being used perfectly on their offense, it’s time I move CEH ahead of Taylor, whom I will look at further in the fallers section.
WR – Terry McLaurin +2, Stefon Diggs +2, Gabriel Davis (WR64)
The first WR riser I’m focusing on this week is Terry McLaurin, who goes from WR8 to WR6 in my rankings. McLaurin has shown time and time again that he’s the best talent on that team, and with Alex Smith under center, that offense as a whole seems to sputter. I’m banking on the team drafting a star in the next class, making McLaurin a solid asset for fantasy managers as well.
Stefon Diggs has had a terrific season that very few people have talked about lately, or so it seems. He was my WR10 but moves up two spots in my Superflex dynasty rankings due to his Week 10 and 11 performances. The team is clearly leaning on him as the stud receiver that he is, so fantasy managers should feel fine to do the same.
An honorable mention goes out to Diggs’ teammate, Gabriel Davis. Davis should see an increase in work with John Brown struggling to stay healthy and is quickly becoming someone to target in dynasty as well. He was unranked but jumps onto the list at WR64 this week.
TE – Dallas Goedert +1
My lone tight end riser this week is a case of youth over experience, moving TE Dallas Goedert above teammate Zach Ertz. Goedert has just looked more solid as of late, even though his QB Carson Wentz has looked a little wild. Goedert has a long future in the league, meaning his dynasty value should hold as well.
Superflex Dynasty Rankings Week 12 | Fallers
QB – Lamar Jackson -1
The lone QB that moves down in my PPR dynasty rankings is Lamar Jackson. The team doesn’t seem to be letting him off the chain as much, and they have been struggling on the ground more as of late as well. Lamar seems to be hitting a sophomore slump, of sorts, but until he gets it figured out, I’m moving him to QB3 in dynasty behind Wilson.
RB – Ezekiel Elliott -2, Jonathan Taylor -1
With the rise of Henry to be in the top four of my Superflex dynasty rankings, someone had to fall out, and that someone is Ezekiel Elliott. His offense is sputtering, and it doesn’t look like they really want to feed him as much anymore. On top of that, Zeke appears to have lost a step or two and just doesn’t seem as dominant as he once did.
The other faller this week is Jonathan Taylor, whom I mentioned earlier when discussing CEH. Taylor is still a terrific talent, but if the Indianapolis Colts aren’t willing to give him the feature back role, it’s hard for us to rely on him in fantasy either. When it comes to my 1QB dynasty rankings, he still lands in the top ten, but just barely.
WR – Julio Jones -6, JuJu Smith-Schuster -4
The writing has been on the wall for a while, but it’s becoming clear that fantasy managers just can’t trust stud WR Julio Jones like they used to. He falls from WR6 in my PPR dynasty rankings to WR12, meaning he’s still worthy of a WR1 slot but his age and increased injury risk make him more of a liability than he’s been in the past.
Similarly, the other faller this week is JuJu Smith-Schuster. JuJu has been struggling with a few injuries of his own, but the reason he falls is because of the added talent around him in Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool, who are both seeing their fair share of targets. Perhaps JuJu does better as a WR2 on his own team, but for now, he’s better off at WR23 in my Superflex dynasty rankings.
TE – Zach Ertz -1
The flipside to my Dallas Goedert write up is the aging wonder, Zach Ertz. Ertz is scheduled to return this week from his injury, but he worries me greatly in dynasty. His value is cratering at a position that already has a huge drop from the top talent. He can rise again, but for now, it’s hard to trust him in dynasty.
