Waiver Wire Targets: Week 12

Does your fantasy football team need a boost heading into week week 12? Here’s who you should pick up on the waiver wire.

Well, the football season is flying by. The beginning of the playoffs for fantasy football leagues is quickly approaching, so it’s time to get those rosters ready to take home a championship. Focus on matchups, handcuffs, and volume for all players. You might have to drop a player you have been stashing on the roster and grab someone that can lead you to that big win.

Jeff Driskel (DET): With Matthew Stafford out a few more weeks, Driskel is a great pickup for a few reasons. The Lions love to throw the ball even more after they lost their star running back, who is still out. They have a few good matchups on the horizon that make this pickup even better. Driskel has the ability to extend plays, which also helps his numbers. In only two games, he has been solid so far. At this point in the season, teams need to get consistency out of all players. Finally, approaching the last bye week means some quarterbacks need some a replacement.

Other Options: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, and Jacoby Brissett

Running Back

Jonathan Williams (IND): It was tough to see Marlon Mack go down with a hand injury. He will be out at least this week since the Colts play on Thursday night. If you are looking for some help at the running back position this week, grab Williams. After Mack went down, Williams got nearly all the carries. The Colts will want to depend on the run this week. Even though the Texans struggled last week, we all know they are a high-powered offense that Indianapolis will try to keep off the field as much as possible.

Other Options: Nyheim Hines, Bo Scarbrough, and Darrel Williams

Mecole Hardman (KC): Kansas City has plenty of options on offense. But if any of their players have similar potential to Tyreek Hill, it’s Hardman. Depending on what happens with Hill’s injury, Hardman is a good stash play. The Chiefs have had some issues this season with injuries on offense. They are on a bye this week, so it’s the perfect time to grab Hardman if you can.

Other Options: Josh Gordon, Darius Slayton, and Zach Pascal

Tight End

Jacob Hollister (SEA): As of late, Hollister’s targets have been there for production to be high. This week, his targets could increase depending on what happens with Tyler Lockett. The biggest reason for this pickup has to do with matchups. In week 16, which is most likely the championship game, Seattle faces the worst defense against the tight end position. These are the things to start gearing up for now.

Other Options: Ross Dwelley, Ryan Griffin, and Noah Fant
