The likes of CeeDee Lamb, Michael Carter, DeAndre Hopkins, Kyler Murray, Cordarrelle Patterson, Alvin Kamara, Allen Robinson, Jordan Howard, Justin Fields, Jamal Agnew and A.J. Brown are dealing with injuries that could cost significant time in some cases.

Two teams have byes in Week 12. The Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs will be taking time off, so key pieces like Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill will need to be replaced. For those thinking ahead, the Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans are off in Week 13, so adjust waivers accordingly.
