Week 12 Projections

Season Projections
Granted, Ninkovich doesn't post the gaudy big-play numbers of some of the other 'elite' IDP DL. In fact, the 31-year-old has never logged more than eight sacks in a season. And after racking up a ridiculous (for a defensive end) 91 tackles for the Patriots two years ago, Ninkovich's numbers were down in that category as well in 2014. However, Ninkovich has posted eight sacks in each of the past three seasons, finishing as a DL1 in 12-team IDP leagues in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring each of those seasons. The 10th-year strong-side end may not have the highest fantasy ceiling, but he's a consistent producer who is unlikely (assuming health) to leave his fantasy owners hanging. If you get frozen out of the bigger names up front you could do worse as a DL1, and Ninkovich is the PERFECT complement to pair with a high-upside/high-variance option.

New England Patriots Team Talk
Another 16-0 season a possibility?
I'm just not sure who left on the Patriots schedule will be favored to win. Dallas had been a threat, but Romo and Dez are injured. Colts aren't a threat to any playoff team it seems. Denver is always a threat and their defense is amazing, but ...
New Tom Brady Thread
Since someone decided (without explaining why) to lock the other Tom Brady thread, I guess we will start up another one while we wait for Judge Berman to rule....
So when the hell is Deflategate gonna be wrapped up?
This is ludicrous. All this time and high-powered expensive lawyers and nothing yet? C'mon. Me thinks if it was any team but the Pats it would have been resolved many moons ago. They're either trying really really really hard to find absolutely ...
What will Belichick's excuse be for running up the score?
Up 38-0 and you come out in the shotgun throwing deep fades to Moss. Brady must be on his fantasy team...
This place is pretty dead. Allow me to liven it up with some random photos. [img:iinc1r7r]http://i.imgur.com/ymLH769.jpg[/img:iinc1r7r] Jules looking good. Happy Birthday. This pic on twitter from a few days ago is hilarious ...
