Week 12 fantasy football rankings: Chiefs have a matchup to be thankful for

Below are my early 1/2 PPR fantasy rankings for Week 12. Most leagues are using points per reception these days, so take that into consideration when looking at the ranks. Six points are awarded for every receiving and rushing TD, and four points for every passing TD. If you are playing in a non-PPR league, pass-catching running backs lose a bit of value and so do possession receivers. Make sure you check the status of players that have been limited or out of practice. The rankings will be updated on Sunday morning.

With Jake Odorizzi having completed two rehab starts in the minors, it appears he could join the Astros rotation as soon as July 4th, if the Astros decide to go that route. With Odorizzi's return in mind, will the Astros move to a 6-man rotation considering they only have one off-day before the All-Star break, and 19 consecutive games after the break?

Or, will Cristian Javier once again be moved to the bullpen to make room for Odorizzi and keep Verlander pitching every fifth day?

Plus, we examine how the timing of Lance McCullers' hopeful return may come too late for the Astros to trade away some key starting pitching depth before the trade deadline.

We discuss this and much more in the video above! Check it out!
