Fantasy Football Week 12 Waiver Wire

With the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers on a BYE week, fantasy football owners are going to have a hard time replacing some important fantasy football players. Whatever you do, do NOT jeopardize your future just for a one time use QB or TE. Think twice before dropping someone!

Preparing for the Fantasy Football Playoffs

Important Fantasy Players on BYE


Eli Manning 5 INT GIF

The Arizona Cardinals beat the Detroit Lions behind two passing touchdowns from Drew Stanton. That and a dominating defensive performance.  8 QBs threw multiple interceptions, led by Eli Manning 's 5.  Ryan Mallett led the Houston Texans to a win over the Cleveland Browns in his first start, throwing touchdowns to Garrett Graham and J.J. Watt!

Wait for QBs to Clear Waivers

Jonas Gray scored 4 touchdown for the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts defense.  Good luck next week against the Detroit Lions!  The rest of the league scored 4 total rushing TDs, two from Jamaal Charles, one one from Knile Davis and one from Eddie Lacy.  It was a rough week for fantasy football owners.  There were two running backs who got 30+ carries, and they were both rookies: Gray, and Alfred Blue of the Houston Texans.  Arian Foster should be back for Week 12.  Gray rushed for 199 yards, Blue gained 156.  Two other rookie backs gained 100+ yards: Cincinnati Bengals Jeremy Hill (152) and St. Louis Rams Tre Mason (113).  

RBs Worth a Waiver Move

  • Tre Mason (50%) - @ Chargers
  • Jonas Gray (20%) - vs Lions

Wait to Clear Waivers

Finally, Josh Gordon has come back, to Cleveland! 

Mike Evans tied Randy Moss' rookie record of three straight 100 yard games with a touchdown.  Evans caught 7 passes from Josh McCown for 209 yards and 2 touchdowns.  He has 21 receptions for 458 yards and 5 touchdowns in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3 November games.  Brandon Marshall and Michael Floyd (FINALLY) also caught 2 touchdowns.

WRs Worth a Waiver Move

Wait to Clear Waivers

The Denver Broncos saw Julius Thomas leave their game with the St. Louis Rams with an ankle injury,  along with Montee Ball and Emmanuel Sanders, leading to 10 targets for Jacob Tamme.  Let's hope there is some good news this week!  Dwayne Allen also suffered an injury, leaving Coby Fleener as Andrew Lucks main TE and will hopefully receiver his Red Zone targets.  Jermaine Gresham led the pack of TEs that nobody owns in fantasy football scoring touchdowns with 2!  Larry Donnell, Tim Wright, Tony Moeaki, Rhett Ellison and Garrett Graham also scored.  Kyle Rudolph did play (14 snaps), but did not see any targets.

TEs Worth a Waiver Move

  • Kyle Rudolph (51%) - vs Packers
  • Coby Fleener (39%) - vs Jaguars

Wait to Clear Waivers

  • Jermaine Gresham (4%) - @ Texans
  • Jacob Tamme (2%) - vs Dolphins
