Fantasy football rankings for Week 12: Giving thanks for Tyreek Hill and more in 2022 (2024)

It's Thanksgiving week, a traditional time for football fans to get their fill of both turkey AND pigskin.

Thankfully, the NFL is taking a break from bye weeks so fantasy managers should have a buffet of options for their lineups. Let's roll!

Fantasy football rankings for Week 12 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Rankings are compiled byFantasySharks.com.
