Football on Thanksgiving is an American tradition and there are some big fantasy matchups this year. Drew Brees versus Matt Ryan features two of the top quarterbacks for week 12 in the evening. The Lions and Bears have the potential for a high scoring affair as well. As far as the Redskins and Cowboys...maybe eat during that one.

- The greatness of Drew Brees plus the lame Falcons defense should equal fantasy delight on Thursday.
- Andrew Luck is on a tear and at this point he is a good bet for top 5 QB numbers in any game.
- The ranking for Mitchell Trubisky is obviously reliant on him actually playing. The matchup is there if the young gun suits up.
- At this point, Matthew Stafford cannot be trusted. Particularly with Khalil Mack lurking on the other side of the line of scrimmage.
- This week is a good chance for Nick Mullens to try and show that he can take advantage of a great matchup. I wouldn't hold my breath, though.
The games are on the way soon, so get those lineups figured out right away. Enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and good luck in the fantasy matchups. Follow me on Twitter for some extras or to get specific questions answered: @brendancole16.
