Start ‘Em

Jordan Matthews (PHI) vs. Tennessee Titans – Rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews has unofficially taken over the No. 2 receiver spot in the city of brotherly love since the reincarnation of Mark Sanchez. In three of the last four games Matthews has four touchdown receptions and back-to-back 100 yard receiving games.

It’s likely that the Titans will use Jason McCourty to shadow Jeremy Maclin, leaving Matthews with a favorable match-up against  Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

No. 2 wideouts have fared fairly well when facing Tennessee this year. Pierre Garcon, DeAndre Hopkins and Torrey Smith have scored at least nine points against the Titans in their past four games.  Nine receivers have reached double digits in Fantasy points with seven touchdowns allowed.

Sit ‘Em

Larry Fitzgerald (AZ) @ Seattle Seahawks – Cardinals wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald is going into a tough match up in week 12 as Arizona heads north for Seattle to take on the Seahawks. We all know how hard it is to play in Seattle, and more importantly, against Richard Sherman and the legion of boom. A few team were however able to make the trip and come out victorious this season.

Since back up quarterback Drew Stanton took over for an injured Carson Palmer four weeks ago, Fitzgerald has scored a combined 14 fantasy points including a two catch, 33 yard performance against Detroit last week. To complicate matters worse, he also battling a sprained MCL.

The Seahawks defense isn’t the same dominate monster that it was in 2013, but that doesn’t mean that they are a slouch by any means. Trust me when I say to bench Fitz in week 12.
