We all have a lot to thank for this year. The availability of this week’s top fantasy football stars isn’t one of them.

Two of the top contenders for Super Bowl LVI, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals, are saying goodbye this week. So, from the stars Patrick Mahomes To kyler murray To Travis Kelsey And deandre hopkins You’ll spend time with their families while you ignore their families, while scrutinizing for replacements on Waver Wire.

A three-game slate of Thanksgiving games is also a problem as it makes the return of the injured standout more volatile. Teams are unlikely to risk their fragile stars coming back in a short week, whether we’re talking Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliot or the new orleans star Alvin Karama,

Can you find anything at the fantasy buffet to replace your missing gridiron calories? Here are a half-dozen possibilities still available in your league, and hot dishes to be had in Week 12:

Devonta Freeman (Ravens RB) – The veteran has emerged from the mish-mash that is Baltimore backfield and become the undisputed No. His yardage totals are not high, but he has a TD in four of his last five matches. He stands a 5 out of 6 spot against Cleveland.

Rex Birkhead (Texan RB) – Houston abruptly decided to hire the former Patriot first episode last week. He ran 18 times in upset Texans from Tennessee and could be in line for his first touchdown of the season on Sunday against the lowly Jets.

Elijah Moore (Jets WR) – This rookie has emerged as New York’s most reliable fantasy option when it comes to the Jets. He has four TDs in his last three games and is coming off a 141-yard effort versus Miami. He could have done the same against Houston.

Marvin Jones (Jaguar WR) – He is one of the biggest disappointments of the season with only 42 catches and three touchdowns. But Jacksonville has played better lately, and the Atlanta defense has not. A good candidate for a late season revival.

Jimmy Garoppolo (49ers QB) – The Vikings’ defense was mostly cut in the second half by Aaron Rodgers last Sunday, and San Fran’s attack has been intensified. Garrapolo has made two TDs in four straight games and will likely make it his fifth Sunday.

Trevor Simian (Saint QB) — Hard to believe but the former Northwestern Platoon QB has been one of the top fantasy QBs over the past three weeks after replacing Jameis Winston. A lot of his stats have been padded in waste time, and there will be more against the Bills.

The New York Jets need to replace the trailing rookie Michael Carter At least for a couple of weeks because of a high ankle sprain. who would that be? one of two Tevin Coleman Or ty johnson, One or both could become a fantasy factor, especially with the lowly Houston Texans on the slate this week.
