The fantasy football schedule picks up for Week 12 and some sleepers and players to start include Tevin Coleman, Spencer Ware, Thomas Rawls, Brandon LaFell, Ahmad Bradshaw, Buck Allen, Shaun Draughn, Tyler Lockett and Matt Jones for team owners. Rawls will be starting with Marshawn Lynch out for the Seahawks.

Danny Amendola will be out for the Patriots on Sunday and that could make Brandon LaFell a good start option in fantasy. Julian Edelman is out after having foot surgery and with Dion Lewis also off the field with an injury, Tom Brady will have to dish out targets to someone besides Rob Gronkowski and that could be LaFell. Tevin Coleman is a good start option as well due to an injury to Devonta Freeman, who will be out with a concussion for the Falcons.

Charcandrick West is dealing with a hamstring injury and that could give Spencer Ware another chance for the Chiefs. Ware had a big game last week coming in for West, while other running backs like Matt Jones and Ahmad Bradshaw also could be good options. Carlos Hyde has been dealing with a foot injury and Shaun Draughn has been starting while he has been out. Buck Allen should see increased work with Justin Forsett out for the season with a broken arm.

Ware is a solid sleeper option for the week after rushing for 96 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas City last week. Even if West plays, Ware should see increased work after totaling over 100 yards and it comes as the Chiefs have been one of the hottest teams in the league over the past month. Bradshaw had a solid game last week for the Colts with two receiving touchdowns and he could continue to get touches with Matt Hasselbeck starting in place of Andrew Luck.

The Seahawks will have Marshawn Lynch out for a bit of a stretch and that puts Thomas Rawls in a starting role. Lynch had sports-hernia surgery and even if he make good progress on that, Lynch could be out for a month at the least. Rawls comes in after a huge game with 209 rushing yards against the 49ers and he had two total touchdowns in the matchup. Tyler Lockett also could be a good starter option for the Seahawks, as Doug Baldwin is a bit banged up and Lockett came through with two touchdowns last week.

Matt Jones has been dealing with some fumbling issues, but Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that the team still has confidence in the running back. Jones has been a more consistent option than Alfred Morris this season. Allen comes in after having a strong game for the Ravens, putting up over 110 total yards coming for Justin Forsett.
