Week 12 Waiver Wire

smitty staff
Hey all, here are your Week 12 Waiver Wire Additions. Note: Make sure Rob Kelley isn’t available in your league. He shouldn’t be, as we talked about him all off-season and he has been on our pickup list for weeks. Jamison Crowder is another that shouldn’t be available.

Thomas Rawls / Alex Collins (RB/SEA) – With CJ Prosise out for the regular season, Rawls is in the starting role. But, Alex Collins is a the better player, keep that in mind and grab both accordingly.

Sammy Watkins (WR/BUF)
– Despite talking about him more than once on our Add/Drop Lists, he is still available in a lot of leagues. He could play some in Week 12 and be good to go by the following week.

Tim Hightower (RB/NO) – Mark Ingram is currently in the concussion protocol. In his absence last week, Hightower was awesome in Week 11 on his 12 carries, rushing for 69 yards, and he pulled in 8 passes for 57 yards. He has flex like value even with Ingram playing, but if Ingram sits Week 12, Hightower has RB2 value.

Wendell Smallwood (RB/PHI) – Both Ryan Mathews (knee) and Darren Sproles (fractured rib) left last week, but both could return this week, or both could sit. This makes Smallwood, a guy we talked up during the off-season (and in prior Waiver Wire Articles), a strong pickup if for some reason he is still available.

Christine Michael (RB/GB) – Cut by Seattle and now with Green Bay, it’s tough to say what is in store for Michael. He is proven, but also doubted by that Seattle coaching staff. Will Green Bay actually use him? If they do, he has a ton of hidden value. Grab him!

Mike Gillislee (RB/BUF) – LeSean McCoy (finger surgery) could actually play Week 12, but that seems optimistic given he is having surgery. We talked Gillislee up all season, he should be owned, and he should already be owned by all McCoy owners.
