The Hive – Week 12 Edition

 

 

 

Welcome back to The Hive everyone! Its week 12, time for the playoff push! Due to the Thursday games (and a bumped up deadline from the editor) The Hive will be a little different this week. You will find the lists of studs, strong starts, gut checks and players to stay away from, but without as much commentary. Think of it as The Hive cliff notes! We will be back to normal for week 13. On to the action!
