NFL Waiver Wire: Week 12 Pickups

NFL Waiver Wire: Week 12 Pickups

This article is part of our NFL Waiver Wire series.

I don't own a share of Joe Burrow anywhere. Therefore, I have no skin in the game when I say it was absolutely heartbreaking to see his injury. The good news is that if Alex Smith can come back from his injury, there's no doubt Burrow can come back from his. The Bengals (and Chargers for that matter) must feel great knowing they have a franchise quarterback for the next 10-15 years who gives them an opportunity to win a championship. I know those words don't help Bengals fans now but the glass is half full. Now onto waiver wire adds this week.

This columns is geared toward "standard" 12-team leagues and based upon a $100 free-agent budget. Please adjust for your league based on both the number of teams (I'm in a 24-team league, for example) and remaining budget.

Quarterback

PRIMARY TARGETS

Taysom Hill, NO - I tried explaining to my wife the uproar in the fantasy community when tight end-eligible Taysom Hill was announced as the starting quarterback last Friday. She murmured under her breath "nerd," though it may have been "turd." Seriously, though, Hill had a productive fantasy day with 28.8 fantasy points and looked much better as a passer than anticipated. He'll get these same Falcons in two weeks and his matchup against Denver this week isn't terrible. It sounds like Brees may be out until Week 15, and if Hill continues to play well, that date could be delayed. FAAB: $5-$10

SECONDARY TARGETS
