Fantasy Football: Week 12 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Picks And Busts

November 20, 2018
Some Notes:

• Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith broke two bones in his leg and will miss the rest of the season.

• Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota may have reinjured his arm.

• Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson sprained his knee and will miss a week or two. 

• Oakland Raiders running back Doug Martin injured his ankle and didn't return to his team's Week 11 game.

• Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard hurt his ankle, and his Week 12 status is in doubt. 

• Lions receiver Marvin Jones could miss Week 12 with an injured knee.

• Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham broke his thumb against the Seattle Seahawks Nov. 15.

• Jameis Winston will return as the starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Ryan Fitzpatrick has been benched.

• Someone please make Condoleezza Rice the new Browns head coach … seriously, PLEASE!

• Thanksgiving football: Chicago at Detroit, Washington at Dallas, Atlanta at New Orleans
