Miami, November 22 (UPI) — Treylon Burks, Taylor Heinicke, and Samaje Perine lead my Fantasy Football Waiver Wire priority list for Week 12 of the 2022 season.

That means most fantasy football teams can go all out. Ryan Tannehill and Heinicke are one of the quarterbacks to consider this week if regular quarterbacks face a tough matchup.

Tight end Kyle Pitts and wide receiver Wandale Robinson are likely to be dropped in the redraft league after suffering season-ending injuries in Week 11.

Some fantasy team owners have also opted to drop players who parted ways last week from the Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars. You can find some value from these teams at Waverwire.

This week is also a great time to add a backup running back to the bench in case the respective team’s starter is injured.

Here are the top players we’re adding and removing in Week 12:

All Additional Teams

QB | Taylor Heinicke, Ryan Tannehill. RB | Samaje Perrin; WR | Tralon Burks, Paris Campbell.Te | Evan Engram; Day/Day | Dolphin; Kay | Chase McLaughlin

honorable mention

QB | Zach Wilson, Marcus Mariota. RB | Jerick McKinnon; WR | Michael Gallup, DeMarcus Robinson.Te | Mike Geschke; Sun/Sun | Colts; Kay | Jason Myers

top drop

QB | Jacoby Brissett; RB | Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Chase Edmonds. WR | Wandale Robinson; TE | Kyle Pitts;


Taylor Heinicke isn’t the ideal quarterback for your fantasy football team, but he should be on the streaming radar for Week 12.

Heinicke has not thrown a touchdown pass in his last two starts, but has scored at least two points in three of his five starts this season. He also topped 200 passing yards in three starts.

The Falcons gave quarterbacks the ninth-most fantasy points and second-most passing yards per game through 11 weeks. Look for Heinicke to pass at least 200 yards and add up his two scores.

He is a low-end QB1 in a league with at least 14 teams.

run back

Samaje Perrine is one of the running backs to target at Waiver Wire this week. The Cincinnati Bengals backup could line up for a decent workload in Week 12 due to a concussion suffered by starter Joe Mixon.

Perrin recorded 82 yards from scrimmage and scored three times with 15 touches in Week 11. The Bengals will face the Tennessee Titans’ tough run his defense this week, but Perryn should serve as his catcher on the pass. We’ll have to continue to monitor Mixon’s situation this week, but Perrine is still valuable when Mixon plays. He is also indispensable to Mixon’s stockholders.

Kansas City Chiefs Jerick McKinnon is also back on target with a waiver wire, but he won’t be able to plug in as a starter anytime soon. Also, Rashard he should see if White and backup Alexander Mattison and Dontrell his Hilliard are available in your league.

wide receiver

Tennessee Titans rookie Treylon Burks is the top waiver wire target this week if you don’t want a running back. Also in Week 10, he had six targets.

Look out for the Titans and continue to increase Burks’ role in the offense each week. The Titans will face the Cincinnati Bengals in Nashville on Sunday. The Bengals have one of the best pass defenses in the NFL this season, but expect their defense to focus most of its attention on running back Derrick Henry.

Titans may also fall behind in this matchup and be forced to throw, Burks is nearlocked against at least 6 targets. I also expect him to at least get his 80 yards and find the end his zone for the first touchdown of his career.

tight end

Evan Engram of the Jacksonville Jaguars is my favorite tight end target this week. Engram has averaged 5.8 targets, 3.8 catches and 42.2 receiving yards per game over his last six appearances. He’s only scored once this season, but he’s hoping for a TE1 performance on Sunday when the Jaguars host his Ravens out of Baltimore.

The Ravens own the worst pass defense in the AFC. Find the engram and get at least 5 catches at 50 yards. Find the end zone and he can provide an elite TE1 value.
