Week 12 Waiver Wire Targets
Philip Rivers, QB/LAC: Rivers has a nice Thanksgiving matchup against the Cowboys that could be a fairly high-scoring affair.
Andy Dalton, QB/CIN: The Red Rifle will get a Week 12 matchup against the woeful Browns, which should up his fantasy stock, if only for one week.
Samaje Perine, RB/ WAS: While injuries end seasons for some players, they open doors for others, and that’s exactly what happened in Washington to and for Chris Thompson and Perine, respectively.
Latavius Murray, RB/MIN: Murray has scored three touchdowns in the past two weeks and has a favorable matchup on Thanksgiving against the Lions.
Jamison Crowder, WR/WAS: Available in a quarter of leagues, Crowder has been targeted at least 8 times in each of his last three games and has caught 20 passes for 271 yards in that stretch. A date with the woeful Giants pass defense awaits.
Rishard Matthews, WR/TEN: Everyone has been waiting for rookie Corey Davis to have his breakout game, but Matthews has been holding steady in the past three weeks with 14 receptions, 233 yards and two scores.
Jack Doyle, TE/IND: Doyle is available in about a quarter of leagues and he’s a good streamer option this week coming off the bye against the Titans.
Adam Shaheen, TE/CHI: With injuries to the position, the Bears’ rookie tight end had his best game of the season with 4 catches for 41 yards and a score last week. Likely to be trailing the Eagles all game this week, Shaheen could be valuable in PPR leagues.
