Fantasy Football: Week 12 Waiver Wire Options



Week 12 of the Fantasy Football season begins this Thursday November 26, 2015. In just a couple of weeks the playoffs will begin. Are you ready? I hope you are but if you aren’t I have some waiver wire suggestions for you this week.

Quarterbacks

The Denver Broncos Brock Osweiler has a tough matchup this week against a Patriots defense allowing QB’s just 17.5 Fantasy Points per game. Last week against the Bears Osweiler threw for 250 yards, 2 touchdowns and zero interceptions. You could do worse this week than Osweiler and he’s available in just over 80 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.

The Buccaneers Jameis Winston has a decent matchup with a Colts defense allowing QB’s an average of 16.9 Fantasy Points per game. Winston is coming off a big 5 touchdown, 246 yard and zero interception performance against the Eagles last week. I don’t look for him to repeat this performance on Sunday but another quality start looks to be in the cards and he is currently available in over 65 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.

Running Backs

Spencer Ware of the Chiefs is a must have at this point especially if you own Chacandrick West. At this point in the week we don’t know if West is going to play this weekend but what we do know is this; the Bills allow running backs an average of 17.1 Fantasy Points per game and Ware is coming off of a nice 96 yard 2 touchdown performance against the Chargers. He’s available in just over 70 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues and with all the injuries this season if I owned West I would grab him just in case.

Ahmad Bradshaw and the Colts have a matchup this Sunday with a Buccaneer defense allowing running backs 14.4 Fantasy Points per game. That doesn’t seem like a very good matchup but Bradshaw does the majority of his damage via the air hauling in 4 passes for 20 yards and 2 touchdowns to go along with 32 yards rushing last weekend against the Falcons. If you need a running back this weekend Bradshaw is available in over 80 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.
Wide Receivers

Devin Funchess and the Panthers have a tough matchup this Thursday with a Cowboys defense allowing receivers just 17.4 Fantasy Points a night. Last Sunday Funchess saw 8 balls thrown his way catching 4 of them for 64 yards and a touchdown against a very stout Seahawks secondary. Hopefully lightening will strike twice and Funchess is available in just over 80 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.

Marvin Jones and the Bengals have a difficult matchup this week against a Rams defense allowing receivers just 12.1 Fantasy Points per game. Over his last 3 games Jones has seen 24 balls thrown his way with 13 receptions for 182 yards and with all those targets Jones could have incredible upside this weekend and is available in just over 50 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.

Tight Ends

Crockett Gillmore and the Ravens have a great matchup this weekend against a Cleveland Browns defense allowing tight ends 8 Fantasy Points a game. Over his last 3 games Gillmore has 16 targets for 151 yards and 2 touchdowns and is available in just over 75 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.


Good luck this week Fantasy Football Owner!
