Fantasy Football Week 12 Waiver Wire

I'm going to be honest and say that Week 11 was not the week I expected it to be. The Vikings won convincingly against the Rams and the Cowboys are upsetting to watch. However, the Saints' and Falcons' wins were really exciting. The Saints might be the best team in the league! Russell Wilson is also playing out of his mind, making something out of nothing every play. Now, let's see what we have on this week's waiver wire. With three Thursday games, make sure you make your claims as soon as possible. All of these players are owned in under 40% of Yahoo! leagues. Outside of a few exceptions, previously listed players will not appear.

Tyrod Taylor (40% owned) - I'm just going to assume Sean McDermott was kidding when he said he still had to decide who was starting at QB for Buffalo. I'm not even going to get into it: Tyrod Taylor is not a bad quarterback. He's good in fantasy, but he's also good in real life. Tyrod gets the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, who have allowed the 9th most fantasy points to QB's. Even without Kelvin Benjamin, Tyrod will make it work.

Kenny Stills (39% owned) - Kenny Stills with Matt Moore is a big-time money maker. In three games with Matt Moore at quarterback, Stills has 19/330/3. Stills is very underrated, a 6"1 receiver who runs a 4.38 in the forty yard dash. Miami plays New England, a team whose defense is improving but are still allowing the 3rd most FPPG to WR's this year. Stills is a solid addition.

Samaje Perine (37% owned) - People love Samaje Perine. I've seen tweets everywhere saying he's an RB1 for the rest of the year with Chris Thompson out. I haven't watched a ton of him, but I was really impressed during Washington's game against New Orleans and in their game against Minnesota (34 touches for 184 yards). Perine handled almost 70% of Washington's carries Sunday, and Rob Kelley's presence won't bother him much because they'll have different roles. Perine can be plugged as an RB2 against a mediocre Giants defense.

Corey Coleman (32% owned) - Corey Coleman was on the list last week, but it was on my Twitter so I'm sure some of you might not have seen it. Coleman surprisingly looked good in his first game back from injury, being targeted 11 times and turning that into 80 yards. Coleman plays a tough Cincinnati defense this week but then sees the Chargers and the Packers.

Devontae Booker (9% owned) - CJ Anderson got the touchdown, but it's pretty obvious that Devontae Booker is the best option in Denver moving forward. He handled the majority of snaps Sunday and out-touched Anderson 19-15. Anderson also fumbled and basically cost them the game, and no coach likes fumbling. Booker didn't do much with his carries, averaging a little over 3 yards per attempt, but he has a much easier matchup this week against the poor Oakland Raiders. Booker is a must-add in all formats.

Los Angeles Chargers (35% owned) - With or without Tyron Smith, the Dallas Cowboys look terrible on offense. They face another elite defensive front this week, including Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. The Eagles and Falcons combined for 43 fantasy points in 2 weeks against the Cowboys, so let's hope the Chargers can continue the high-scoring trend on Thanksgiving day.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
