Knowing the advantageous Fantasy football matchups is key, especially this late in the season. Fantasy owners can expect to see several members of the Baltimore Ravens high in the Week 12 Fantasy football rankings. That's because the Ravens will take on the Los Angeles Chargers, a defense that's giving up 393.6 yards per game this season. That means players like quarterback Lamar Jackson and running back Gus Edwards could be among the top Week 12 Fantasy football picks. Can you trust a player like TE Isaiah Likely, who's expected to see his usage increase with Mark Andrews (ankle) sidelined with an injury?
A reliable set of Week 12 Fantasy football rankings can help answer those questions and assist in your Week 12 Fantasy football start-sit decisions and trade evaluations, or even help you find a gem in the free agent pool the rest of your league may have missed. Before you lock in your lineups, be sure to check out the Week 12 Fantasy football rankings from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Top Week 12 Fantasy football picks
One player the model is high on this week: Panthers wide receiver Adam Thielen. The veteran wideout continues to be Carolina's most reliable pass-catcher with rookie Bryce Young under center. Thielen secured eight of 11 targets for 74 yards in the Panthers' 33-10 loss to the Cowboys last Sunday. Thielen led the Panthers in receptions, receiving yards and targets against Dallas.
For the season, Thielen has hauled in 76 receptions for 726 yards and four touchdowns. He hasn't eclipsed 100 receiving yards since Week 6, but he'll have a mouthwatering matchup against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, a defense that's giving up 230.8 passing yards per game. That's a big reason why the model has Thielen ranked as a top-15 wide receiver this week, making him a rock-solid option for your Week 12 Fantasy football lineups.
Another massive shocker: Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, the NFL leader in touchdown receptions two of the last three seasons, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 35 at his position. He's a player to consider leaving on the bench.
Adams has been targeted 111 times this year, but only has 64 catches for 741 yards and four touchdowns over his first 11 games this season. His 11.6 yards per reception is the second-lowest of his career and his 67.4 yards per game is nearly 25 yards below his average over the last five seasons. In Week 12, he'll take on a Chiefs defense that just held A.J. Brown to one catch for eight yards.
