So far the staff bold predictions are batting about .333 and that is not too shabby. Last week was my turn to nail one, with Blaine Gabbert going for over 20 fantasy points. The bold predictions week 12 edition features some new blistering hot takes for your enjoyment and consideration.
Brees and Goff Combine for Over 650 Yards and 5 Touchdowns
Brees and Goff throw for over 650 yards with 5 touchdowns and smash the over/under (54) in this one. Both teams have recent injuries to work out. The Rams are without Kayvon Webster (starting DB) and Corey Davis (top rated cover safety per PFF). The Saints are without Ken Crowley (starting DB), Marshon Lattimore (top rated DB per PFF) and Alex Okafor (top rated DE per PFF).
Kareem Hunt Explodes For 200 Scrimmage Yards
Corey Davis Blows Up The Colts For 125 Yards And A Score
It has been a long time coming, but Davis is going to get his Sunday. The Colts do not exactly excel on defense...or offense for that matter. It looks like the Titans number one receiver Rishard Matthews will likely sit this one out. If that does happen, Davis will be thrust into a prominent role in a very favorable matchup.
Even though the Titans would prefer to run on most downs, they will have to throw some. A lot of those throws are going to be downfield shots to Davis. This will be the type of game that people have dreamt about as they stashed Corey Davis. He has the talent to dominate matchups and that will be on display in week 12. I know that you have heard Corey Davis hype as often as you heard that Christine Michael was a RB1. The difference is that I'm right.
