Week 12 is in the books in fantasy football as the Eagles and Packers put the finishing touches on things.  Let's see what came out of it from a fantasy angle. 

-Aaron Rodgers has been a bit disturbing this season in that his overall performance has been as inconsistent as ever.  As he creeps to his mid-30's, it is fair to wonder if Rodgers is slipping some.  There was no such talk Monday night though as Rodgers completed 30-of-39 passes for 313 yards with 2 touchdowns.  Obviously Rodgers' owners need more of this to win in the fantasy football playoffs but this is nice timing.

-Davante Adams is really starting to make a name for himself as the expense of Randall Cobb in the Packers' passing offense as he caught 5 passes for 113 yards and 2 touchdowns.  While he is still behind Jordy Nelson and Cobb technically as a starter, Adams is showing he might now be the best wideout on the team. 

-Nelson did his part as he caught 8 passes for 91 yards.  It has been a bit of a slow comeback for Nelson at times this season but hopefully he too has saved his best for last.  The jury is still out on whether he can return to elite WR 1 form which has not happened this season.

-Those who took a chance on Wendell Smallwood Monday night were letdown as he rushed for 37 yards on 9 carries, while catching just one pass for another 10 yards.  The fact Darren Sproles played really hurt Smallwood and there is simply no reason to try this again next week.

-Carson Wentz has been impressive this season for a rookie but he was not good Monday night as he completed 24-of36 throws for 254 yards with 0 scores and 1 INT.  This is typical stuff of a rookie however and you shouldn't have been using Wentz anyways in fantasy football this season.
