Week 12 Fantasy Football Love-Hate

They say the only thing to fear is fear itself. But I would like to add injuries and frustrating players to the list of things to fear.

Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens sits in the frustration part as he has been widely ineffective this season yet his pedigree insists that you practically have to start him every week. In week 11 I bucked that thinking and didn't start Rice.

Well, it seems like that was all it took for Rice to wake up and contribute as he rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown. Rice owners should be glad to note that I am again going to help pad Rice's season stats by not starting him again in week 12 as I will go with Andre Brown of the New York Giants instead.

This is my Thanksgiving gift to all Rice owners out there.

You're welcome, and my condolences to any Brown owners out there.

Now on to my week 12 edition of Love-Hate.
