The Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups are slim. If your team had a mediocre start to the season and you're looking for a player to help you make that push into the fantasy playoffs then here's your best shot. These are players I'm either starting or holding on my bench and will note them as such below.
Taysom Hill - I bet you didn't pick him up last week. If he's still available he should only get better going forward. Very soft schedule for the next couple of weeks too.
Derek Carr - He faces the Falcons, the second worse defense in the NFL.
Phillip Rivers - week 12 streamer.
Gus Edwards - he is a starter now. Must add in all leagues. Ingram and Dobbin are OUT.
Wayne Gallman - with Freeman moved to IR Gallman is all clear to start this week.
James White - With Burkhead out and Sony needing to be eased in I see week 12 as a serviceable start in week 12.
Cam Akers - his touches are rising and you'll want to hold him on your bench for good luck.
Kalen Ballage - if Ekeler is out in week 12 you're firing up Ballage, again.
Michael Pittman Jr. - start him this week and the next and the next. I won't list him again guys, pick him up!
Marquez Valdes-Scantling - all the buzz is on Lazard but I'm a lock for MVS as he grows in this offense. Bench stash for now and not a PPR candidate.
Jalen Reagor - he get the defenseless Seahawks this week, lock and load.
Tim Patrick - still under owned and still putting up fantasy points.
Dez Bryant - touchdown dependent but worth a bench stash.
Jordan Reed - with Kittle out this guy right here is very start-able in week 12.
Dalton Schultz - not running him in my PPR leagues but his TD's keep coming as of late.
Packers - streaming for week 12.
Browns - streaming week 12, yes please they face Jake Luton.
Giants - Ryan Finley is gonna throw some picks and maybe the G-men take one to the house.
