2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 12

Kim Klement - USA Today Sports
Almost done with the bye weeks, but still there are many players out there to help you plug holes.

Shouldn't be on the waiver wire but check...

Nick Foles (QB, PHI) - honestly if he is still on your waiver wire your league is asleep at the wheel.  Hoping you already have him as your back-up/starter already.

Rashard Jennings (RB, OAK) - as long as McFadden is out keep using Jennings as a flex option.

Harry Douglas (WR, ATL) - even with Roddy back in the line-up Douglas is getting his targets.  His upside is a little less with White back, but still a fill-in for under-performing players.

Must Grab

Bobby Rainey (RB, TB) - Explosion, had a solid game against Atlanta and could break out; he is a must grab.  Expect solid numbers going forward with awesome PPR upside.

Riley Cooper (WR, PHI) - he has been on this list every week for a while and is still on waiver wires.  Pick him up and build your bench.   He didn't have the best week this week, but was extremely close to a TD this week.


Michael Crabtree (WR, SF) - Crabtree is getting back in the game, but unfortunately the 49ers passing game is just ok.  Crabtree is worth a stash at this point to bolster your bench.

Miles Austin (WR, DAL) - Austin has been nursing an injury for a while, but will return to action next week.  He is just someone to warm your bench this week, but a nice stash if he were to do well.

Chris Ogbonnaya (RB, CLE) - McGahee is showing his age and if you are in a PPR league Ogbonnaya has solid hands as well.  Cleveland's offense has it's ups and downs, but Ogbonnaya needs to be acquired.

Charles Clay (TE, MIA) - he is a legit receiving threat and will have the chance next week to really shine.  If you need a TE then Clay is your guy.

Jerricho Cotchery (WR, PIT) - he is on the grab list every week and catches a TD every week, with Sanders potentially missing time his value continues to rise, but TD only league owners take note.

Garrett Graham/Owen Daniels (TE, HOU) - Graham had a solid week, this week, but honestly he can just as easily lose all his upside for Owen Daniels coming back soon.  Owen Daniels will be back soon and he is a sneaky pick up right now.

Santonio Holmes (WR, NYJ) - Geno tends to look Holmes way when Holmes is in the game.  His upside is capped due to the Jets passing game, so temper expectations.

John Carlson (TE, MIN) - He is becoming a big target in Minnesota and is worth a spot start in PPR leagues.

Rishard Matthews (WR, MIA) - PPR league owners only apply here as he is drawing a ton of targets from Tannehill.

Rueben Randle (WR, NYG) - he keeps finding the end-zone and TD league only owners need to consider him for under-performing WR's or just to build up the bench.


Matthew McGloin (QB, OAK) - the unforeseen McGloin had a solid game with Pryor missing time.  He is a total boom or bust going forward if Pryor misses more time, but he is a total gamble at this point.

Fozzy Whittaker (RB, CLE) - Ogbonnaya has more immediate upside but Whittaker is a young guy and Cleveland may begin to give him more reps to develop him.

Markus Wheaton (WR, PIT) - if Sanders misses a game then keep an eye on Wheaton, but he has been a non-factor all year, so I would expect to see a bump to Cotchery and Miller in Sanders absence.

Marquise Goodwin (WR, BUF) - if Woods and Johnson remain out next week then Goodwin is a bit of a flier.

Rob Housler (TE, ARZ) - having pretty solid outings for PPR leagues, but his upside is capped by an up and down passing game.

Ace Sanders (WR, JAX) - Mike Brown was originally scheduled to be the main target with Blackmon suspended but Ace is the guy to keep an eye on for now.

Bryce Brown (RB, PHI) - only worth grabbing if McCoy misses time and even at that he will get the lion share of the carries, but temper expectations as Brown has not looked too solid this year.
