This article is part of our Start vs. Sit series.
This is the final weekend before Thanksgiving weekend. Usually, in the world of college football, that's a huge weekend with big games on Friday and usually a good game or two on Thanksgiving night, though the NFL has usurped that spot a bit. This year, it's going to be very different. Not just because some conferences still have weeks of games left. Games are getting postponed, or cancelled, left and right. As I sit down to write this multiple contests have already been moved from this weekend, if not outright eliminated from the schedule. It's been a strange year to be writing a start vs. sit article. I know sometimes my picks end up fruitless because the schedule changes. On the other hand some of my picks end up working out just fine for fantasy purposes. The world is chaos, but start vs. sit remains vigilant in Week 12.
Calvin Austin, WR, Memphis vs. Stephen F. Austin
Kudos to the Lumberjacks for putting together effectively a full season at the FCS level, as this is their 10th game of the season. Of course, it's not likely to go great playing on the road against Memphis. The Tigers lost weapons to the draft, and Damonte Coxie to injury, but Austin has more than stepped up. He's been over 100 yards in each of his last four games and he's also reeled in seven touchdowns on the campaign.
Dillon Gabriel, QB, UCF vs. Cincinnati
Heresy, you say?
