The NFL season presses on, with the Thanksgiving Day slate kicking off Week 12. For most fantasy leagues the fantasy playoffs are right around the corner in Week 14 or 15, heightening the importance of these last few games. The next few waiver wire moves could be the difference between making the playoffs or earning the elusive first-round bye.
The following the best quarterback, tight end and defense/special teams streaming options for Week 12.
Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins – 44.4% rostered
The Dolphins may not have a clear-cut starter at quarterback this week with Tua struggling in Week 11 and head coach Brian Flores inserting Ryan Fitzpatrick into the contest late, but we can assume Flores will go forward with his rookie at the QB spot. That is why Tua is the man listed here in a golden matchup against the New York Jets.
The Jets have allowed the fourth-most points to opposing quarterbacks and passing yards per attempt (8.03) to opposing offenses this season. PFF’s strength of schedule (SoS) metric agrees with this assessment, with Tua’s matchup ranking as the fifth-easiest among quarterback schedules in Week 12.
