FFL Statbook: Week 12 Game by Game
Originally Published: November 24, 2004By Tristan H. Cockcroft | ESPN Games Fantasy Edge
Here are some of the most notable statistical matchups to help you prepare your Week 12 lineups:
Indianapolis at Detroit: There isn't a player in the league as red hot as record-chaser QB Peyton Manning, who leads the FFL point rankings with 148 from Weeks 7-11. Consider that during that span, he has averaged 327.8 passing yards and four touchdowns; accumulating eight more total TD passes (21) than anyone else. Manning continues his pursuit of Dan Marino when he faces the Lions' 25th-ranked secondary (240.2) in Week 12, so there's no reason to believe he'll slide from his recent pace. ... While facing the bottom-ranked Colts secondary (281.7) might suggest WR Roy Williams is a good start, keep in mind his ankle injury has really hindered him. He has played in only five of Detroit's last seven games and caught just 14 passes for 201 yards and one touchdown during that span. Avoid Williams if you can.
