It’s time for the Week 12 fantasy football waiver wire. Fantasy waivers can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 12.
Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Daniel Jones, NYG (5-10%) — Jones is far from the most stable fantasy option, but he’s displayed a massive ceiling multiple times this season.
Derek Carr, OAK (5-10%) — The Raiders offense is clicking and Carr is playing well. He's 12th among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring since Week 5.
Kareem Hunt, CLV (25-50%) — Cleveland has leaned heavily on Hunt in the passing game, just as we expected. He's a flex-or-better play every week going forward.
Will Fuller V, HOU (20-40%) — Fuller didn't get back on the field last week, but he should return for this week's contest. He's still available in over 20% of leagues and should be scooped up.
Jacob Hollister, SEA (10-20%) — Hollister has produced TE1 numbers in each of his last two games and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Regular leagues (12 teams)
Sam Darnold, NYJ (3-5%) — Darnold is coming off a big Week 11 performance, but it came in an extremely favorable matchup. He's more volatile than the top adds this week.
