Even with three games played on Thanksgiving, we have a full slate of games this weekend thanks to the NFL schedule-makers putting zero byes into Week 12.

While that certainly opens up the player pool for fantasy purposes this week, there are still a litany of big-name players dealing with injuries that could sway this weekend’s results. Keeping reading for an in-depth analysis of every Week 12 game:

– Despite being activated from the IR this week, it is expected Chase Young will sit out at least one more week according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. However, if he does play, Ron Rivera told reporters to expect him to only play 10 to 15 snaps.

Washington’s defense currently ranks fifth in the NFL in total pressures.

Benjamin St. Juste will be inactive this week after suffering an ankle injury. He’s been huge for Washington’s defense, allowing just a 50.8 completion percentage when targeted.
