Fantasy Football: Week 12 Waiver Wire Report

Daniel Jones Giants Fantasy Sleepers
If you are a looking for a quarterback on the waiver wire, one player that is a solid pick up for week 12 is Giants QB Daniel Jones.

By Craig Forrestal

I don’t usually start off the Waiver Wire Report this way but I’m going to this week. First, Happy Thanksgiving. I wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy occasion. Secondly, add Gus Edwards. I’ve mentioned Gus Edwards before in this article and this week he is listed in the “Make Sure They’re Not Available” section. Baltimore faces Pittsburgh on Thursday with JK Dobbins and Mark Ingram both out due to a positive COVID-19 test. Edwards found himself in an expanded role against Pittsburgh a few weeks ago went for 87 yards, 1 TD and 16 carries. I feel he should have been rostered and that’s why he is on the “Make Sure They’re Not Available” section.

Week 12 Waiver Wire Report

  • Daniel Jones/ QB/ NY Giants: He can scoot. Jones gets to run from time-to-time adding in a nice little bonus. He has an ideal rest of season schedule for the most part. While the team isn’t great he should be able to move the ball. While he has been up and down this season the tough part is over and he should have more showings like he did against Philly in Week 10. If Joe Burrow was your fantasy QB look to Jones as a possible replacement. Next 3: @ Bengals, @ Seahawks and Cardinals 
  • Taysom Hill/ QB/ New Orleans Saints: So Sean Payton is a genius. Yes, it was Atlanta but Taysom Hill did what he was supposed to and won. He added 2 rushing TDs and 51 rushing yards to go with 233 passing yards. One of the rushing TDs was by design the other came as Hill eventually took off around the left side once he saw nobody was open. Now, I’m not saying he’s Steve Young like Sean Payton and I’m not going to say he’s Lamar Jackson either but he didn’t look terrible. If you were impacted by Joe Burrow, then Taysom Hill could be a replacement option for you. Next 3: @ Broncos, @ Falcons and @ Eagles
  • James White/ RB/ New England Patriots: Rex Burkhead was pretty heavily involved but he suffered an ACL injury and we won’t see him again until next season. White’s roles expanded immediately, catching 6 of 9 targets for 64 yards. He will operate as the pass catching RB for New England as Damien Harris and Sony Michel haven’t shown much as passing game options. The Patriots RB situation is entirely matchup dependent and when the game script is or will be negative it will be a James White week. Next 3: Cardinals, @ Chargers and @ Rams
  • Frank Gore/ RB/ NY Jets: La’Mical Perine exited the game with an injury and the ageless wonder Frank Gore stepped in and was ready to roll. On the day Gore logged 17 touches for 71 yards and 1 TD. If Perine is to miss time, which is expected, then Gore should take over the main role. Due to the upcoming matchups and anticipated volume he would receive Gore would find himself as a desperation Flex play in deep leagues. However, at this point in the season a lead back is a lead back. Ty Johnson could get some burn too. Next 3: Dolphins, Raiders and @ Seahawks 
  • Samaje Perine/ RB/ Cincinnati Bengals: It’s Perine SZN; well, sort of. The injury to Joe Burrow was devastating to the league. Burrow was rocking and rolling as a rookie putting together a statistically impressive season. However, that all came to a screeching halt against the Washington Football Team. Additionally, Giovani Bernard was a little banged up and Samaje Perine rotated a little heavier than usual. Moving forward with Ryan Finley under center I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bengals took a look at Perine in an expanded role. A sneaky name to remember is Trayveon Williams. But they desperately need an offensive line. Not just for Burrow, but for Joe Mixon and that fan base too. Next 3: Giants, @ Dolphins and Cowboys 
  • Michael Pittman/ WR/ Indianapolis Colts: 3 catches for 66 yards and 1 TD. Pittman is hot over the last few games. As I’ve mentioned before, he’s a big bodied WR and that’s been what Philip Rivers likes. T.Y. Hilton, Marcus Johnson and Zach Pascal are all WRs on this team but none of them are going to steal Pittmans shine as WR1 for the Colts. Next 3: Titans, @ Texans and @ Raiders
  • Jalen Reagor/ WR/ Philadelphia Eagles: I don’t like that I’m recommending him but someone needs to catch passes there besides Dallas Goedert. While Travis Fulgham saw 7 targets against Cleveland it didn’t amount to anything just 1 catch, and sadly I think the Travis Fulgham Experiment is over. Reagor had 4 catches for 52 yards against Cleveland. Next up is Seattle and either Fulgham or Reagor will prevail as the target king and I’m betting on Reagor. He’s been labeled as this dynamic playmaker and if that’s the case I’m going to him. It’s really hard to get excited about this offense. Next 3: Seahawks, @ Packers and Saints
  • NY Giants Defense: The Cincinnati Bengals now become an offense to stream against with Joe Burrow hurt. Ryan Finley steps in and from what we’ve seen he isn’t a signal caller that puts up a lot of points. The Giants are coming off their bye week and should have had time to let things blow over with the coaching staff. Regardless, the Bengals offense will be lackluster at best so grab the Giants D/ST.
