Before setting your Week 12 Fantasy football lineups, you NEED to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Bills quarterback Josh Allen, saying he'd finish as a top-6 player at his position despite being started in less than 70 percent of leagues. The result: Allen threw for 256 yards and three touchdowns, while also adding 56 rushing yards and another score against the Dolphins. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a HUGE week.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 12 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model is high on this week: Rams running back Todd Gurley, who's fresh off a season-high 28 touches for 133 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown last week against the Bears. The model ranks Gurley as a top-10 play at running back even though he's being started in just over 80 percent of CBS Sports Fantasy football leagues.

And a massive shocker: Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who's thrown for over 3,200 yards and 21 touchdowns this season, stumbles big-time and barely cracks the top 20. He's a player to consider putting on the bench.

The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of its Fantasy football rankings! This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your lineups.

So who should you sit and start in Week 12? And which surprising quarterback could lead you to victory? ...
