2014 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 12

Thomas Russo - USA Today Sports
Another week of bye weeks coming up for Week 12; there are a number of QB, WR, RB, and TE's available to pick-up and use as spot starters.  Remember to keep working the waiver wire and building your bench.

Check the waiver wire (just in case):

Rashad Jennings (RB, NYG) - for some reason if he didn't get picked up last week, then he is absolutely worth a pick-up.

Odell Beckham Jr. (WR, NYG) - if he is still sitting on your waiver wire then you must grab him as he is way too talented.

Adrian Peterson (RB, MIN) - he should be back next week or the week after and he is a must stash in all leagues.

Josh Gordon (WR, CLE) - if he is still on the waiver wire your league needs some help.

Ryan Mathews (RB, SD) - he is back and looks more than capable. If he is available he is a nice pick-up.

Must Grab:

Jordan Matthews (WR, PHI) - Sanchez has no problem throwing to Matthews in the red-zone; he does have a bit of a boom or bust potential, but he is a WR with solid upside.

Charles Sims (RB, TB) - he is the lead back in Tampa; he is a bit rusty but if you need someone to plug in for an injury or bye week you can use him.  He should get better over the season.

C.J. Anderson (RB, DEN) - he is the clear starter with injuries to Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. He must be grabbed in all formats; I repeat he must be grabbed in all formats.

Alfred Blue (RB, HOU) - I told you that Arian Foster's injury was potentially severe and he could miss more games. All of you who picked up and started Blue deserve the 15 points he gave you. You have to keep an eye on the news for next Sunday if you are going to think about starting him next week.

Isaiah Crowell (RB, CLE) - there is a major rotation at RB for the Brown and any given Sunday it could be a different back. This time if feels a bit different and Crowell should be the starter again next week.

Jonas Gray (RB, NE) - probably had the biggest night he will ever have, but if you are looking for a boom or bust RB then Gray is your pick. You could do worse, but keep in mind he could easily disappoint.

Spot-Starter:

Latavius Murray (RB, OAK) - Darren Mcfadden and MJD have been terrible; Murray will get more an more chances. He is worth stashing right now.

Kenny Stills (WR, NO) - with Brandin Cooks side-lined with a broken thumb, Stills should benefit.

Coby Fleener (TE, IND) - if Dwayne Allen misses time due to injury then Fleener will work as a spot starter.

Kenny Britt (WR, StL) - Shaun Hill will more than likely be the starter again next week and Britt appeared to be one of his favorite targets. If you are in need at WR Britt presents a starting WR.

John Brown (WR, ARZ) - this kid is talented; if you are in a deep league and you are looking for a WR with upside then Brown is you guy.

Mark Sanchez (QB, PHI) - he will throw interceptions for sure, but he has the legit talent around him to throw at least two TDs a game.

Mychal Rivera (TE, OAK) - he is still a strong start in PPR leagues with TD upside.

Drew Stanton (QB, ARZ) - he didn't look too shabby at all and he is going to throw interceptions, but he will also throw TD's as well.

Ryan Mallett (QB, HOU) - he has a strong arm and has no problem throwing the long ball. He appears to me to be a solid potentially starter and should be rostered and benched if you are in need of a QB.

Kyle Rudolph (TE, MIN) - he is very boom or bust with Teddy Bridgewater but he can be rostered and benched for his potential upside going into play-offs.

Watch:

Jacob Tamme (TE, DEN) - if Julius Thomas misses next week's game due to injury and there are no other options then check the wire for Tamme. He has upside in PPR leagues.

Roy Helu Jr. (RB, WAS) - he is only worth a flier in very deep PPR leagues, otherwise he is way too risky to start.

Jermaine Kearse (WR, SEA) - only PPR leagues should keep an eye on him as he is getting a ton of looks in Seattle.
