NFL Week 12: Waiver Wire
Joe Flacco – Flacco and the Ravens are at home this weekend against a historically bad Texans passing defense this Sunday. He’s owned in less than 8% of leagues and is certainly worth a spot start this week.
Paxton Lynch – I have no idea what to expect from Lynch this weekend as he makes his first start as a pro. We swung and missed bad last week on Peterman, but this matchup is much better and the weapons around Lynch are much better. He’s available, if your desperate…or brave.
Ryan Fitzpatrick – With Jameis Winston scheduled to miss another start, Fitzpatrick gets to throw to targets like Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and OJ Howard. He’s worth a spot start this week against a beatable Falcons secondary
Samaje Perine – With RB Chris Thompson down with a broken leg, Perine steps in and assumes lead back duties for the Redskins. With a juicy matchup this weekend against the suddenly soft Giants, he needs to be owned in all formats.
Damien Williams – The Dolphins would be absolutely crazy to keep him on the sidelines. With only 11 touches on the day, he generated 104 yards. Pick him up.
Devontae Booker – Booker is owned in less than 10% of leagues and appears to have taken over the RB1 spot from CJ Anderson. Expect it to be Bookers job to lose moving forward.
Josh Doctson/Jamison Crowder – With injuries to pass-catching RB Chris Thompson, Jordan Reed and Terrelle Pryor, the air-it-out Redskins will turn to Doctson and Crowder as the primary targets. Expect both of their production to skyrocket.
Kenny Stills – Stills had another big game against the Buccaneers generating a 7-180-1 line. He’s now scored five touchdowns on the year and is a solid PPR option every week and somehow available in nearly 70% of leagues.
Cooper Kupp – With Robert Woods sidelined for a couple of weeks with a shoulder issue, Kupp is the man in the high-power Rams offense. QB Jared Goff is starting to justify his #1 overall pick. Expect Kupp to benefit.
Greg Olsen – If he’s still available in your league, pick him up. He’s off IR and starting this week.
Charles Clay – With injuries to WRs Jordan Matthews and Kelvin Benjamin, Clay may be the only healthy pass-catching option not named LeSean McCoy
Benjamin Watson – The Texans have been on a four-game run the ranks amongst the worst in defensive history. Take advantage.
