There’ s not much on the waiver wire heading into Week 12, but here are a few players that may be worth picking up depending on the size of your league.
Don’t forget to tune in every Sunday at 9:00am for the OFN Fantasy Football show with Jamal, Greg DePalma and Dan Weinreich.
RB Devonte Booker, Denver Broncos…Booker’s slow ascent to number one on the Broncos’ depth chart may have arrived. He led the team in carries on Sunday with 14 to go along with five receptions.
RB Corey Clement, Philadelphia Eagles…Even with the arrival of Jay Ajayi, Clement has remained a part of the offense. He has rushed for at least 50 yards in each of his last three games and has three touchdowns in his last two games.
TE O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers…The supremely talented tease is back on the radar after having his first good game in three weeks.
RB Samaje Perine, Washington Redskins…If Perine is still available, he is a must pick up. He’s the last man standing in the Washington backfield, after Chris Thompson suffered a broken leg on Sunday. Perine rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown for good measure.
WR Paul Richardson, Seattle Seahawks…Richardson caught five passes for 56 yards Monday night vs. the Falcons. He’s been inconsistent, but has over 40 yards receiving in each of his last five games.
RB Rod Smith, Dallas Cowboys…If you’re looking for RB insurance in deep leagues, maybe take a chance on Smith, who had eight carries vs. Philadelphia in a backup role.
WR Mike Wallace, Baltimore Ravens…Wallace had his second straight game with four receptions and a touchdown, Sunday. If in need of WR help, Wallace could provide modest assistance.
QB Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers…Winston is a good insurance policy for the fantasy playoffs. He could return to action in Week 14, so he’s worth a roster spot if you don’t have a dependable backup quarterback.
