57 Essential Notes from Week 12 Fantasy Football

Each week I do the dirty work and look at every single team, taking notes of who did what from a Fantasy Football lens. This takes some time but is important to do each week so that we can identify players trending up/down, be aware of role changes, make roster transactions, and understand bigger pictures. We should always be learning and adjusting when it comes to Fantasy Football – it is what can separate you from your league mates. Here are the important notes from Week 12 that you should be aware of if you want to win in Week 13 and on into your fantasy football playoffs.
