Club Fantasy – Pick ‘Em Up! 2016 Week 12 Waiver Pickups


By The Hudsonian, Joshua Hudson & Commishie

pick-em-upThis post is so important, you get TWO people writing this week. It’s okay to feel special. We want you to. With the rash of injuries that struck a plethora of players and teams in Week 11, there are a lot more players than normal on this week’s list. I’ll let Commishie go first.

Tyler Boyd/Brandon LaFell

Dalton has to throw to someone not named Tyler Eifert in A.J. Green’s absence. You can’t go wrong with either of these guys but Boyd has the slight edge in upside, especially in keeper/dynasty leagues. – The Commishie

Chris Ivory

He’s usually a running back that runs the ball. He made an impact for the Jets as a runner and still finished in the top 15 in PPR scoring. Then he gets to Jacksonville and they can’t run the ball and only pass to  T.J. Yeldon out of the backfield. And then this happened last week: 6 catches for 75 yards. With RB depth in short supply, grab him if you’re a part of the 45% of leagues he is NOT owned in. – The Hudsonian

Tyreek Hill

With Jeremy Maclin out, the dynamic Hill becomes Kansas City’s second most dangerous receiving threat behind Travis Kelce. Hill is an athletic freak who creates nightmares when he finds even the smallest of openings. – The Commishie

Sammy Watkins

He’s not back yet but he will be soon. Stash him now if you can… – The Commishie

Pierre Garcon

Seemingly out of nowhere, here comes Pierre Garcon as Kirk Cousins’ newest favorite target. As teams continue to hone in on Reed and Crowder, Garcon stands to benefit. – The Commishie

Jared Cook

Cook broke out in a big way on Sunday night. Aaron Rodgers has a big bodied TE that he can exploit mismatches with. And he’s available in a TON of leagues. Grab him! – The Hudsonian

Adam Thielen

The Vikings WR continues to produce, with 40.5 pts scored over his last three weeks. And he can be had in 95% of leagues. A good FLEX streamer this week and has Jacksonville, Indianapolis and Green Bay in the fantasy playoffs. Could prove a viable FLEX play in 12 and 14 team leagues. – The Hudsonian

Dennis Pitta

Available in more than half of fantasy leagues, he makes for a good streamer this week against a Bengals team allowing the 3rd most points to TEs in fantasy. – The Hudsonian

Ryan Tannehill

He plays the 49ers this week. That’s all you need to know for a streaming QB. And he’s available in 83% of leagues. – The Hudsonian
