This week we don’t have to look far for our defenses that come at a minimal charge and could bring a tidy reward. Two of them are playing in the same game.

Decisions, man. They’re usually hard, which sucks because I like easy things.
The fantasy football decisions you’ve been making every week are about to overtake your life. Or maybe they already were, because if fantasy football hasn’t ruined at least one relationship, you’re not doing it right. Also, if you haven’t randomly woken up in a Vegas ditch with a white tiger because of fantasy football, you haven’t lived.
Week 12 officially begins in a few hours, which means the crunchiest time is upon us and the immense weight of your weekly decisions will cause cold sweats. That’s why going forward we’re going to spotlight one possible lineup decision a sizable chunk of worried souls are facing, and try to determine the best course of action, or at least the one that will result in less mental anguish.
First up: Joe Flacco vs. Mike Glennon.

Just over a week from now otherwise well-meaning souls will be beating each other with iPads after all-night Wal Mart camp outs. That mass of swarming retail humanity usually signifies something glorious for fake footballers: the end of bye weeks.
Yes, they will mercifully conclude this week, with the Seahawks, Bills, Eagles, and Bengals giving us one last go around on the waiver wire replacement craps table. Let’s get to it then…

Wide receivers are not created and groomed to be one thing. Some have skills that are more widespread, while others excel and thrive in a certain area. Neither approach is incorrect, but for those who watch, analyze, and discuss football, the end result gives us arguably the offensive position that has the most varied skill set.
If we were to make an attempt to simplify this, there’s often the pure speed burner (think Victor Cruz, or going further back, Randy Moss in his prime), the hulking physical brute who will beat you up over the middle (Anquan Boldin), and the shifty slot pest (Wes Welker).
But then what complicates matters — at least for defensive coordinators — are the hybrids. The rare and uniquely constructed Calvin Johnsons who do all of those things at a high level: the blazing, the battling, and the elusiveness.
Demaryius Thomas is one of those receivers.
