Start vs. Sit: Players to Start, Players to Bench for Week 12

This article is part of our Start vs. Sit series.

It's the last college football weekend before Thanksgiving. That Thanksgiving weekend is filled with rivalry games, and the week after that we have conference championships. It's all exciting, but of course, you know what that means: It's Cupcake City for the SEC! All that and more as I go through players to target, and to avoid, for Week 12.

AAC

START

Shamari Brooks, RB, Tulsa vs. Temple

Brooks has had a few clunkers, but he also has four games with over 100 yards and six touchdowns over his last nine games. I don't expect an off day against the Owls. Temple has allowed 40.1 points and 232.8 rushing yards per contest.

SIT

Brandon Thomas, RB, Memphis at Houston

Thomas started the season off great, but then he got banged up against UCF. He missed the SMU game, and while he returned against East Carolina he only got four carries. Thomas may be ready to ramp it up, but even if he gets more touches it might not matter against Houston. The Cougars rank 11th in rushing yards allowed per game.

ACC

START

Jared Wayne, WR, Pitt vs. Virginia

Jordan Addison is the big name in the Pitt receiving corps, but with Taysir Mack out, Wayne has stepped up as the number-two man. This includes him having four touchdowns in his last five contests. The Cavaliers have given up 33.9 points and 256.6 passing yards per game, and this could be another high-scoring, high-flying game for the Panthers.
