Under The Radar
This week on under the radar I look at more Fantasy Football stash Targets In Week 12. Two more players going under the radar to keep an eye on.
An odd choice I admit but potentially still a good player that is ticking over nicely and a solid candidate for one of my Fantasy Football stash Targets In Week 12.
Over the last few weeks and from the bye week on, Freeman has upped his game time to 58% share of the snaps.
Freeman’s usage has also gone up from a couple of rushing attempts a game to averaging 13 attempts a game in the last 3.
In Freeman’s last 5 games, he’s scored 3 rushing TD’s and a receiving TD.
Speaking of the receiving game, in the last 4 games, Freeman has been targeted 16 times and caught 14 of those. This shows his ability in the passing game as well as getting the uptick in rushing work.
If you are playing in a league where you have 3 games left of your fantasy regular season, it will be useful to know that the Ravens play Cleveland twice bookending the Steelers in the next 3 weeks.
The Steelers run D isn’t quite as tip top as it was last season and it seems that the Browns can be run on a lot easier these days too.
All in all the progress for Freeman in this Ravens offence including the next three game run bodes well for being one of my Fantasy Football stash Targets in week 12.
Straight in with another Running Back. Hilliard got a massive vote of confidence this week. Not only being signed to the active roster but also with the Titans letting go of veteran running back, Peterson.
In the only game that Hilliard has played, he’s gone straight into the team and gained 63% of the snap share.
Hilliard had 7 rushing attempts for 35 yards which doesn’t sound great but that’s an average of 5 yards per attempt.
Hilliard was also thrown into the passing game, having the ball come his way 10 times and catching 8 of those for 47 yards averaging 5.88 yards per catch.
This week the Titans have a tough matchup against the New England Patriots. However the Titans are also struggling with passing options as Julio Jones and Marcus Johnson are both on IR.
On top of that, Running Back Jeremy McNichols is in concussion protocol. This could rule him out of the week 12 game elevating Hilliard to a lot more potential work.
The potential extra snaps and work is why I’ve picked Hilliard as one of my Fantasy Football stash Targets In Week 12.
That’s it Rush Nation, two more Fantasy Football Stash Targets In Week 12 for you to keep an eye on. Make sure you look out for my future and previous articles for this series.
Until then, Keep Rushing!
