Week 12 Ranksauce November 21, 2012  |  gregsauce

Hey fake footballers, welcome to the Week 12 Ranksauce. I’m really feeling the Thanksgiving tradition this week, so I’m going to kick things off with a ranking of savory Turkey Day dishes:

1. Gravy. It’s gotta be #1 because it makes all other Thanksgiving foods better.
2. Stuffing. If gravy were only condiment-eligible, stuffing would be the clear #1 pick.
3. Mashed potatoes. Step 1: Create a well in your mashed potatoes with your spoon and fill it with gravy. Step 2: Profit.
4. Sweet potatoes. Clearly I have a thing for starches.
5. Brussels sprouts. My sleeper pick of the holiday season, brussels need to be prepared properly to justify this ranking (Pro tip: roast ’em, people!).

As a bonus, here’s my all-avoid list for Thanksgiving:

1. Turkey. Sorry pilgrims, the Ranksauce is vegetarian.
2. Cranberry sauce. What can I say? It just doesn’t make my turkey gobble.

On to the Week 12 ranks!

    14 Team PPR: I currently have Bennett at TE, Rudolph just got dropped. Is it worth it to switch it up?

  2. B-Real says:

    At TE, should I start A. Gates or Dwayne Allen?


  3. Milo4424 says:

    Ryan or Dalton?

    12 team League. At WR I have Aj green Calvin, and Cobb. I start Cobb in my flex, so I only start 2 RBs. At RB I have Rice, Bradshaw, Andre Brown, Bryce Brown, Leshoure, Ballard, and Wells. With a lot of descent depth should I drop Wells or Ballard for David Wilson and the possibility of late season breakout? He is the only real upside back on waivers. Thanks

    hey greg, i have 2rb spots, 1qb spot and a flex where i cant star qb or rb. I have Eli, Colin Kap, CJ, Martin and Reece. I want to sit Eli but think he might straighten out this week, Who do you sit

  6. Jermichael says:

    12 Team PPR: Commish wants to set up a trade, I don’t necessarily see on, I’m 9-2, 1st place, clinched a playoff spot. ME: Brees, Freeman, Dez, Cruz, Alexander, James Jones, Garcon, DHB, Martin, JStew, Beanie, Graham, Rudolph, GB D. HIM: Luck, Eli, Demaryius, Britt, Lloyd, Shorts, Amendola, LaRod, Mathews, Reece, LeSean, Gates, Paulsen, Hou. Any suggestions?

  7. Banjoe says:

    Major Dilemma PPR tough choice but went Kaepernick vs the Saints over Locker vs the Jags? Then I od have Rice & Mathews at RB. Which leaves 2 WR and Flex from Julio-IF he Plays or gotta chose from Denario,(WR2) but then Felx is driving me crazy could be Sproles, or Bryce Brown,(Ijust don’ know if I can trust an Eagle?) and still have Blackmon Mike Williams.. I also thought if its worth dropping one of the Latter 2 for either Britt or Kendall Wright ..Those numbers against the Jags was staggering. But really lost if Julio is OUT . Thanx

    • gregsauce says:

      Kaepernick is the play at QB. For your 2 WR and Flex, I’d use Julio, Danario, and Blackmon. If Julio doesn’t play, I’d gamble on Bryce Brown.

  8. Pedro says:

    Debating on playing wright over Lloyd. Crazy?

  9. Duck says:

    Luck or kaepernick?

  10. Glenn says:

    1 pt PPR, need a RB between Ridley or Morris. Also starting Martin.?Thank you!
