Week 12 Hot Picks
Almost went with Peyton Manning here but the Chiefs passing defense ranks 9th best in the league (214.6 yards per game). After looking at it for a while, I can't pass up on Brady in a rivalry game. "Tom Terrific" will take on a Jets defense working on a short week. I'd normally shy away from playing a QB on a short week, and on the road, but the last 3 times Brady's faced the Jets he's thrown for 6 scores and over 900 yards.
Sticking with the Patriots theme, I think Ridley and Hernandez will have big games as well. Hernandez is really the only impact tight end New England has right now due to the Gronkowski injury.
As for Ridley, he's scored in 3 straight games. He's a safe bet to get a bigger workload considering the Jets have the third worst rush defense in the league.
