by Tom Brolley

Here are this week’s top Waiver Wire options that are owned in less than 50% of Yahoo leagues. I’ll list any players at the top who are above the 50% threshold (or are household names) but are still somewhat widely available for those who might be in smaller leagues.

WEEK 12 BYES: Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Minnesota Vikings


Best Options if Available: Baker Mayfield (Cle, 54%)

Top Targets

Jeff Driskel (Det, 3%) — There’s a good chance we won’t see Matthew Stafford (back) again this season and Driskel has been more than serviceable for fantasy with 19+ FP in both of his starts. He completed 15/26 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys in Week 11 and he added 8/51/1 rushing. Driskel has 88 rushing yards and a touchdown in his two games to boost his fantasy value and running QBs have been game-changers at the position this season. The top-six QBs in overall fantasy scoring (Lamar, Russ, Dak, Deshaun, Kyler, and Josh Allen) rank inside the top-eight at the position in rushing yards. The Lions have a non-existent running game and a putrid defense so this offense is running through Driskel and his talented receivers. Driskel has a great matchup this week against a Redskins defense that just allowed Sam Darnold to throw for four TDs, and he has a couple of good spots the next couple weeks if he continues to start for Stafford (@Was, vs. Chi, @Min, vs. TB). We have some good fantasy QBs on bye this week (Mahomes, Kyler, Rivers, and Cousins) and don’t be afraid to roll with Driskel if you need a one-week streamer with some potential down the stretch.

Jacoby Brissett (Ind, 38%) — Brissett ended up missing just a game with his sprained MCL and he led the Colts to an important AFC South victory in Week 11. He completed just 15/24 passes for 148 yards, one TD, and one INT against the Jags and he added 2/12/1 rushing to boost his bottom line. Brissett threw for multiple TD passes in each of his first four games this season but he’s cooled off recently with multiple passing scores in just one of his last four completed games. It doesn’t help that he’s been playing without T.Y. Hilton (calf) in recent weeks but he does have some attackable matchups over the next four weeks (@Hou, vs. Ten, @TB, @NO). Brissett would get a fantasy boost if Hilton is able to return this week and this offense could be on his shoulders a little more while Marlon Mack (hand) is out of the lineup.

Going Deeper

Sam Darnold (NYJ, 22%) — Darnold infamously saw ghosts against the Patriots on Monday Night Football in October, and he still looks like a second-year player who has very little confidence right. Darnold has been miserable under pressure and that is bad news since their O-line is a disaster right now. Darnold is still plugging away, though, and he had his best performance of the season against a hapless Redskins squad in Week 11. He completed 19/30 passes for 293 yards (9.8 YPA), four touchdowns, and one interception. Darnold does have three juicy spots in a row (vs. Oak, @Cin, vs. Mia) before his schedule gets tough in Weeks 15-16 (@Bal, vs. Pit). Darnold isn’t the easiest player to trust but his Week 11 performance has earned him a little more trust going forward.

Ryan Tannehill (Ten, 33%) — Tannehill has given this once-anemic passing game under Marcus Mariota some life since he stepped into the lineup the last five weeks. He thrust the Titans back into the playoff picture with a comeback victory against the Chiefs in Week 10, completing 13/19 passes for 181 yards (9.5 YPA) and two touchdowns. He also added 3/37 rushing to give himself 75 rushing yards and a rushing TD in his last two games. Tannehill has now accounted for multiple touchdowns in each of his four starts and he’s averaging a healthy 8.5 YPA this season. Tannehill is one of the top streaming options and his schedule isn’t too bad in the upcoming weeks (vs. Jax, @Ind, @Oak, vs. Hou).

Daniel Jones (NYG, 31%) — The rookie Jones has had mixed results this season but, at the very least, he’s proven to be resilient and pretty good for fantasy. He lost another fumble against the Jets in Week 10 but he completed 26/40 passes for 308 yards and four touchdowns in a loss while adding 20 rushing yards. In just nine appearances this season, Jones has 17 turnovers but he continues to show a lot of fight and a lot of promise each week. The Giants’ defense is going to force Jones to throw it quite a bit most weeks since they can’t slow down many offenses. Jones is certainly better for fantasy formats that don’t deduct major points for turnovers, and his schedule is pretty juicy during the fantasy playoffs (@Chi, vs. GB, @Phi, vs. Mia, @Was). He also could have his full arsenal back in the near future with Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (foot) trending in the right direction.

Nick Foles (Jax, 32%) — Foles was hardly an upgrade over Gardner Minshew in his first game back from his broken collarbone that he suffered in the season opener. He needed heavy garbage time to come up with 296 yards, two TDs, and one INT on 33/47 passing (6.3 YPA) against the Colts in Week 11. Both of his touchdown passes went to D.J. Chark so all three of his TD passes this season have gone to the second-year WR. Foles doesn’t have the most breathing room with Minshew waiting in the wings, but Foles does have a beatable schedule in the next couple weeks (@Ten, vs. TB, vs. LAC, @Oak).

Running Backs

Best Options if Available: Jaylen Samuels (Pit, 66%), Duke Johnson (Hou, 61%), Tarik Cohen (Chi, 61%), LeSean McCoy (KC, 55%), Adrian Peterson (Was, 53%)

Top Targets

Jonathan Williams (Ind, 1%), Nyheim Hines (Ind, 16%), and Jordan Wilkins (Ind, 1%) — I’ll be completely honest with you…this current backfield situation isn’t easy to decipher. Marlon Mack fractured his hand in Week 11 and he could be looking at a multi-week absence after getting a procedure done Monday. Wilkins is also dealing with an ankle injury that prevented him from practicing and playing last week. That likely leaves Williams and Hines to handle the workload in this backfield on Thursday night against the Texans, but Wilkins said Monday that he hopes to play this week and that his ankle healed faster than anticipated. Williams stepped in for Mack and posted 13/116 rushing and 1/31 receiving on 46% of the snaps against the Jaguars in Week 11 while Hines added 3/11/1 rushing and 3/24 receiving on four targets on 35% of the snaps. Williams will likely handle the early-down role against the Texans this week while Hines will be used in passing situations. These backs could also stay in these roles for the near future depending on the severity of Mack’s injury. However, Wilkins could throw a wrench into this backfield if he’s able to return soon since he was ahead of both Williams and Hines before his ankle injury. This is how I’m looking at the backfield for this week and the future: Williams is a one-week option as the lead runner, Hines should have more value than earlier this season as the passing back for the near future, and Wilkins is the potential long-term lead runner if Mack would miss multiple games.

Derrius Guice (Was, 47%) — Guice returned to the lineup in Week 11 after spending the last 10 weeks on the IR with his torn meniscus. Guice started the game behind Adrian Peterson but he made the biggest impact out of this backfield, posting 7/24 rushing and scoring on a 45-yard screen pass against the Jets in Week 11. Peterson got slightly more work (9/25 rushing and 2/5 receiving) than Guice but the 2018 second-round pick may have earned more opportunities going forward. Unfortunately, Wendell Smallwood ended up leading the backfield with 46% of the snaps, which isn’t the best sign since they didn’t feel comfortable playing Guice as the passing back just yet. He should carve out a fantasy-relevant role as an RB3 down the stretch but the presence of rookie QB Dwayne Haskins is going to drag down the ceiling of this already pathetic offense.

Bo Scarbrough (Det, 1%) and J.D. McKissic (Det, 21%) — This Lions backfield continues to be a hot mess for fantasy since Kerryon Johnson (knee, IR) went down for the season. The Lions promoted Scarbrough from the practice squad before Week 11 and he came out and led this backfield with 14/55/1 rushing against the Cowboys on 49% of the snaps. McKissic continued to play in his passing back role, posting 3/40 receiving on four targets and 3/13 rushing on 23% of the snaps. Ty Johnson was the odd man out here and he can be dropped if you’ve been rostering him. Both Scarbrough and McKissic are worth adds but just don’t expect him them be difference-makers because Matt Patricia and Darrell Bevell have been toying with this backfield all year.

Going Deeper

Chase Edmonds (Ari, 13%) — HC Kliff Kingsbury admitted last week to what anyone with eyes can see right now: David Johnson isn’t healthy trying to play through back and ankle injuries. The Cardinals aren’t going anywhere this season and they could shut down DJ at any point to preserve his health. Edmonds is dealing with his own hamstring injury but he could potentially return to the lineup in Week 13 out of their bye this week. It wouldn’t be surprising if it is Keyan Drake and Edmonds splitting work down the stretch if DJ’s health doesn’t improve — Johnson played nine snaps in Week 11 without a touch.

Kalen Ballage (Mia, 37%) and Patrick Laird (Mia, 0%) — Ballage has proven to be pretty bad at football in his first year and a half but maybe something will click for him down the stretch since he’s going to get some extra playing time. Or not. The Dolphins traded away Kenyan Drake to the Cardinals before Week 9 and the NFL suspended Mark Walton through Week 13 because of three off-season arrests that led to his release from the Bengals. Ballage is going to be the guy in this backfield for the next two weeks (@Cle, vs. Phi) but I’m not expecting anything more than RB3 performances. Ballage could only muster 9/9 rushing and 5/8 receiving on six targets against the Bills in Week 11 but he did fall into the end zone to post some solid fantasy production. The Dolphins started to work Laird into the mix in passing situations in Week 11 as he caught all six of his targets for 51 yards while playing 23% of the snaps compared to Ballage’s 77% share. It's best to avoid this Miami backfield but at least Ballage should get double-digit touches while Walton is out, which gives him a chance at fantasy relevance.

Raheem Mostert (SF, 15%) — I feel like I’ve typed this a few times over the last two years…Matt Breida left early with an ankle injury in Week 10. Breida’s absence elevated Mostert into the #2 RB role behind Tevin Coleman in Week 11 but the 49ers couldn’t get their running game on track against the Cardinals. Mostert led this backfield with an ugly 6/13 rushing and he added 2/14 receiving on three targets while playing 49% of the snaps. Unfortunately, Jeff Wilson vultured a 25-yard touchdown pass on a screen late in the game on his only snap of the game. If Breida is unable to play again in Week 12, Mostert will be a low-end plug-and-play option, especially in non-PPR formats since he has just seven catches in 10 games.

Trey Edmunds (Pit, 3%) — The Steelers rushed James Conner back from his shoulder injury in Week 11 and he aggravated the injury against the Browns. That means Edmunds could split this backfield with Jaylen Samuels this week against a terrible Bengals defense. Edmunds has been used as the primary runner next to Samuels, who excels in the passing game, and Edmunds could certainly get plenty of run against the league’s worst run defense if Conner can’t play — he had six opportunities on 47% of the snaps last week.

Premium Handcuffs

Alexander Mattison (Min, 29%) — Starting RB Dalvin Cook is having a huge season, but he has had some injury issues throughout his career dating back to his days at Florida State. The Vikings have just Ameer Abdullah behind Mattison and I’d expect Mattison to see a heavy workload if Cook missed time. He’s the best handcuff in fantasy right now and he’s close to having standalone value with how much work he’s getting each week.

Rashaad Penny (Sea, 26%) — Penny is simply a handcuff for Chris Carson at this stage of the season with Carson dominating snaps in this backfield. Penny would see most of the work if Carson is out with C.J. Prosise likely mixing in, as well.

Tony Pollard (Dal, 23%) — Pollard’s complementary role has evaporated a bit with Zeke back to dominating the work in this backfield. Elliott owners would be wise to scoop up Pollard if he’s thrown to the scrapheap if you want to handcuff your top-five pick.

Gus Edwards (Bal, 7%) — Edwards is the top option behind Mark Ingram, ahead of Justice Hill, and he’d be the team’s lead runner if Ingram was forced to miss time down the stretch.

Ryquell Armstead (Jax, 2%) — It might be wise to scoop up Armstead if you’re a Leonard Fournette owner as he’s the clear #2 RB on this depth chart. Fournette doesn’t have the best history of staying healthy for too long.

Giovani Bernard (Cin, 4%) — Gio is a must-own in any week that Mixon is out of the lineup. Bernard is a capable runner and receiver who can take on a big role as we’ve seen in the past when Mixon has missed time.

Darrell Henderson (LAR, 25%) — Henderson brings much more explosiveness to this backfield than Malcolm Brown and HC Sean McVay would be wise to work him in more with Todd Gurley mostly disappointing. It’s worth stashing Henderson because he’d have a ton of value if Gurley’s knees start acting up down the stretch.

Rex Burkhead (NE, 7%) — Burkhead is worth a stash if you’re rostering either James White and/or Sony Michel. Burkhead does a little bit of everything as a runner and receiver, which makes him a viable handcuff for both players since his role would be elevated if one of these guys misses a game down the stretch.

Wide Receiver

Best Options if Available: Deebo Samuel (SF, 53%), DeVante Parker (Mia, 58%), Josh Gordon (Sea, 62%), Will Fuller (Hou, 61%)

Top Targets

Darius Slayton (NYG, 25%) and Sterling Shepard (NYG, 40%) — Slayton has some fantasy juice as the top outside WR for as long as Sterling Shepard is out of the lineup. Shepard is dealing with his second concussion of the season but he did return to practice early this week so he could be nearing a return if he can avoid another setback. Slayton has still earned a prominent role in this passing attack even when Shepard and Evan Engram (foot) get back. The rookie speedster out of Auburn broke out in his big role in Week 10 against the Jets, torching them for 10/121/2 receiving on 14 targets while playing 93% of the snaps. He used his long, wiry frame to haul in a five-yard touchdown before using his speed for a 39-yard score. Slayton now has multiple scores in two of his last three games. Slayton has a lot of similarities to another breakout youngster in D.J. Chark with his speed and long frame and Slayton definitely has a strong connection with his fellow rookie Daniel Jones. Slayton has juicy matchups in the fantasy playoffs against the Dolphins in Week 15 and against the Redskins in Week 16 so there’s a chance this rookie could be on some league-winning teams. As for Shepard, he appears on track to potentially return this week but nothing is guaranteed with his health this week or in the future. I’d prioritize Slayton because of his health and big-play ability but it wouldn’t be shocking if Shepard has the better finish if he’s able to stay on the field.

James Washington (Pit, 8%) — The Steelers lost both JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson to scary head injuries in Week 11, elevating Washington into the #1 WR spot. With Mason Rudolph playing poorly behind a struggling O-line, Washington managed 3/49 receiving on four targets and he added 33-yard DPI while playing 85% of the snaps against the Browns. Washington is playing his best in the last three games, recording 13/208/1 receiving on 15 targets. Rudolph is one of the worst starting QBs in the league and Washington could disappoint at any time down the stretch as a WR4, but he could be forced into a prominent role against a leaky Bengals secondary in Week 12 if Smith-Schuster and/or Johnson can’t play.

Going Deeper

Randall Cobb (Dal, 10%) — Cobb has shown a pulse the last three weeks with 16/256/2 receiving on 23 targets with a pair of 20+ FP performances in the last two weeks. Cobb posted 4/115/1 receiving on seven targets and 62% of the snaps against the Lions in Week 11, marking his second straight game with 100+ yards and a TD. Amari Cooper is playing through a knee injury right now. Coop could miss a game at any point down the stretch and/or Dak Prescott could lean on Cobb and Michael Gallup if Cooper isn’t moving great as he did in Week 11. Cobb is in the WR4 conversation but he does have a brutal schedule coming up (@NE, vs. Buf, @Chi, vs. LAR).

Tim Patrick (Den, 0%) — Patrick returned to the lineup in Week 11 after landing on the IR with a hand injury in the season opener. He immediately jumped into the #2 WR role behind Courtland Sutton and he posted 4/77 receiving on eight targets while playing 73% of the snaps. You may not remember but Patrick posted 19/242/0 receiving on 30 targets over the final four games of last season when Emmanuel Sanders suffered his torn Achilles. Patrick has similar size (6’4”, 212 pounds) and athletic ability (4.47-speed, 37.5-inch vertical) as his running mate Sutton, and he could make an under-the-radar fantasy impact down the stretch.

Chris Conley (Jax, 13%) — Conley isn’t the easiest guy to trust but he does have 11+ FP in three of his last four games. Conley padded his stats in garbage time in Week 11, recording 6/58 receiving on eight targets in a blowout loss to the Colts while playing 85% of the snaps. Conley is averaging an impressive 20.0 YPR this season and Foles isn’t afraid to throw it downfield, but Conley is still the #3 receiving option in a middling passing attack so he’ll be susceptible to some duds.

Josh Reynolds (LAR, 16%) — It’s unclear if Brandin Cooks will play again anytime soon but Reynolds will be his replacement for as long as he’s out. Cooks has an ugly history of concussions since he’s been in the league, and the Rams were concerned enough to send him to see a specialist in Pittsburgh during their Week 9 bye so they’re going to make sure Cooks is completely healthy before he steps onto the field again this season. Reynolds has recorded 9/177/1 receiving on 19 targets filling in for Cooks in their last three games. His numbers could look much better but he had a 51-yard TD taken off the board by an illegal formation penalty by Cooper Kupp. Reynolds has been the handcuff for these top three WRs in Los Angeles and Reynolds will be a viable high-end WR4 for as long as Cooks and/or Robert Woods (personal) is out of the lineup.

Cole Beasley (Buf, 35%) — Josh Allen is going to chuck it deep to John Brown or he’s going throw it underneath to his safety-valve Beasley. He’s never been a prolific scorer in the past but he remarkably ran off TDs in three straight in Weeks 7-9. He didn’t find the end zone in each of the last two weeks as he caught all four of his targets in Week 11 against the Colts for 38 yards while playing 90% of the snaps. Beasley has scored 9+ FP in eight of his 10 games this season if you’re looking for a PPR option with a solid floor.

Taylor Gabriel (Chi, 7%) — Good luck trusting any of these Bears receivers in a fantasy lineup with their terrible QB situation right now between Mitchell Trubisky and Chase Daniel, but Gabriel has been getting it done on the low-end with 9+ FP in four straight games. With the Bears throwing it 47 times against the Rams, Gabriel led the Bears with 7/57 receiving on 14 targets while playing 91% of the snaps. Gabriel has now posted 50+ yards or a touchdown in four straight games and he gets a juicy matchup against the Giants this week.

Hunter Renfrow (Oak, 14%) — Renfrow has been developing into the #2 WR for Derek Carr as he’s topped 4+ catches and 40+ yards in four straight games. He posted 5/66 receiving on six targets against the Bengals in Week 11 while playing just 44% of the snaps. The Raiders offense is going to revolve around Josh Jacobs, Tyrell Williams, and Darren Waller every week, but Renfrow is working his way into WR4 fantasy consideration in PPR formats with his play the last four weeks.

Demaryius Thomas (NYJ, 10%) — With Robby Anderson completely disappearing, Thomas has stepped up for his struggling young quarterback Sam Darnold. DT had his best game of the season with 6/84 receiving against the Giants in Week 10 and he backed it up with 4/44 on five targets against the Redskins in Week 11 while playing 65% of the snaps. Thomas is averaging 4.0 catches/game and 51.6 receiving yards/game in his last seven contests if you’re looking for some low-end help with a decent floor.

Mecole Hardman (KC, 33%) — Tyreek Hill tweaked his hamstring early in Week 11 against the Chargers and he never returned to the lineup. Hardman stepped up and played 76% of the snaps after that but he managed just 2/13 receiving on four targets with Patrick Mahomes throwing for only 182 yards. The Chiefs are on bye this week so there’s a chance that Hill won’t miss any more game action, but it might be wise to handcuff your top fantasy receiver by picking up Hardman as insurance if he can’t play against the Raiders in Week 13.

Devin Funchess (Ind, 5%) — We finally got some news about Funchess (IR) last week as he’s nearing a return from his broken collarbone suffered in the season opener. Funchess practiced on a limited basis last week and he just needs to get the final clearance that his bone is strong enough to play. The Colts could certainly use him with T.Y. Hilton (calf) potentially missing more time and with Parris Campbell (hand) out another couple of weeks.

Tight Ends

Best Options if Available: Vance McDonald (Pit, 54%), Jimmy Graham (GB, 53%), Darren Fells (Hou, 57%), Jason Witten (Dal, 56%), T.J. Hockenson (Det, 53%), Kyle Rudolph (Min, 55%)

Top Targets

Noah Fant (Den, 28%) — The Broncos traded Emmanuel Sanders away before Week 8 and it’s been Fant who has stepped into the #2 receiver role behind Courtland Sutton. He saw eight targets and had five catches in his last game with Joe Flacco in Week 8 and he exploded for 3/115/1 receiving on four targets in his first game with Brandon Allen in Week 9 against the Browns. He then saw a 27.5% target share against the Vikings in Week 11, turning 11 targets into 4/60 receiving while playing 86% of the snaps. Fant has unique speed and physicality for the tight end position but Allen’s presence at quarterback does lower Fant’s floor a bit. Still, the rookie TE does offer some potential for a breakout in the second half if he stays in his current #2 receiver role.

David Njoku (Cle, 18%) — Njoku (wrist) is eligible to return of the IR this week against the Dolphins and Freddie Kitchens called him “day-to-day” at this point in his recovery so he could be in uniform in a great matchup this week. Njoku has to pass a few tests in terms of conditioning this week but he is an intriguing option off the waiver wire since he has TE1 upside. Baker Mayfield is slowly turning the corner recently and the Browns get some solid TE matchups down the stretch (vs. Mia, @Pit, vs. Cin, @Ari, vs. Bal) so it’s time to add Njoku if you’re looking for some TE relief.

Jacob Hollister (Sea, 26%) — Russell Wilson loves his tight ends, especially in the red zone. Seattle TEs have scored 32.6% of Wilson’s TD passes since the 2017 season (30-of-92), including 30.4% this season (7-of-23). After scoring two touchdowns in Week 9, including the game-winner, Hollister scored Seattle’s only passing TD against the 49ers in Week 10 on his way 8/62/1 receiving on 10 targets while playing 78% of the snaps. Hollister hadn’t scored in his first 26 games between the Patriots and Seahawks but he scored three times in an eight-day span. He now has 17/137/3 receiving on 24 targets in the four games since Will Dissly (ACL, IR) left the lineup. Hollister should be considered as a borderline TE1 down the stretch with his usage of late but, unfortunately, Ed Dickson will make his 2019 debut in Week 12. Hollister should remain the #1 TE here but Dickson could cut into his workload.

Ryan Griffin (NYJ, 3%) — Chris Herndon’s season from hell continued in Week 10 when he fractured his ribs in his first game action of the season before landing on the IR before Week 11. Brutal. That means Griffin will once again be the top option at TE for the rest of the season, and he didn’t disappoint in his first game with Herndon on the IR. Griffin caught all five of his targets for 109 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins in Week 11 while playing 85% of the snaps. Griffin now has 11+ fantasy points in four out of his last six games and he’ll be a high-end streaming option going forward since Darnold is comfortable throwing to his TEs.

Going Deeper

Dallas Goedert (Phi, 19%) — Goedert is tough to completely trust in a fantasy lineup since he’s playing next to one of the better fantasy TEs in Zach Ertz but he’s now topped 9+ FP in five of his last seven games. Goedert posted 3/36/1 receiving on six targets against the Patriots in Week 11 while playing 81% of the snaps, which gives him three touchdowns in his last four games. With the Eagles absolutely hurting at WR and DeSean Jackson (hernia) on the IR, Goedert is a high-end TE2 going forward since Goedert is one of the few receivers Carson Wentz trusts.

Cameron Brate (TB, 2%) — O.J. Howard put himself back in Bruce Arian’s doghouse after he dropped a pass early against the Saints in Week 11, which turned into an interception. Brate got his chance after Howard’s terrible effort, posting team-highs in targets (14), catches (10), and receiving yards (73) on 75% of the snaps compared to Howard’s 25% share. We’ll see if the Bucs continue to bench Howard in the coming weeks and Brate has a good spot to potentially do some damage against the Falcons this week.

Mike Gesicki (Mia, 18%) — Gesicki has been emerging a bit since their Week 5 bye and he had his first true blow-up game against the Jets in Week 9, catching all six of his targets for 95 yards. With Preston Williams (knee) done for the season, Gesicki is competing with Allen Hurn’s to be the team’s #2 receiver for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Gesicki disappointed in Week 11 with just 4/18 receiving on six targets against the Dolphins while playing 86% of the snaps. Gesicki blew up the Combine two years ago and there’s a chance he could emerge down the stretch with his bigger role in the passing game.

Jonnu Smith (Ten, 16%) — Smith will be a streaming option this week against the Jaguars if Delanie Walker (ankle) continues to miss time but I’d avoid these Titans TEs if Walker is able to return to the lineup off of their bye. Smith has posted 3+ catches in each of his last four games but he’s managed just 48 yards on seven catches in his last two games.

Dawson Knox (Buf, 6%) — The Bills need to get Knox more involved down the stretch because he gives them some juice in the middle of the field. He saw a season-high six targets against the Browns in Week 10 on his way to 4/55 receiving before posting 2/32/1 receiving on three targets against the Dolphins in Week 11 while playing 71% of the snaps. Knox is, unfortunately, linked to Josh Allen who is going to be a sporadic passer most weeks, but Knox clearly has the ability to be a fantasy-relevant player if he starts to see 5+ targets a week.

D/ST Streamers

Cleveland Browns (vs. Mia, 48%), Oakland Raiders (@NYJ, 64%), Atlanta Falcons (vs. TB, 2%), Seattle Seahawks (@Phi, 34%), Detroit Lions (@Was, 7%)
