Though all 32 teams are playing, that doesn’t mean Fantasy owners don’t have to hit the waiver wire to hit some serious roster demands.

A look at Week 12 Fantasy Football Predictive adds:

WR, Tennessee Titans

Burks is targeted more than any other receiver on the waiver wire when fantasy owners make their postseason pushes. Apparently the consensus is that the rookie wide receiver is becoming a real downfield threat and has positioned himself as the WR1 in Tennessee. The Titans don’t have many talented pass catchers, so Burks should continue to pace the team to receive yards. was a complete bust and clearly favors the rookie. After missing week 5 through week 9, Burks returned but was calm by week 10. However, against the Packers in Week 11, the rookie hit seven of eight goals for a career-high 111 yards. He now has 20 receptions for 264 receiving yards in the season but failed to find the end zone. Given how many targets he sees, Burks will eventually find pay dirt. He should be one of the top priorities on the abandonment wire this week, especially in PPR formats.

RB, Cincinnati Bengals

After suffering a concussion early in the third quarter of Cincinnati’s thrilling 37-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bengals turned to Perine with Mixon on concussion protocol. Mixon looks extremely doubtful about playing against a strong Tennessee Titans defense in Week 12. Despite being solid against the run, the Titans allow tons of dump-off passes to opposing running backs, which is where Perine shines the most. In fact, in Week 11, Perine had three touchdowns against the Steelers. He finished with 30 rushing yards on 11 carries and four receptions for another 52 receiving yards and the aforementioned three points. As long as Mixon is out, Perine is a must in this case.

RB, Denver Broncos

Not only did Murray have a solid showing in Denver’s heartbreaking overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, but the Broncos subsequently relinquished it. They signed, but those moves appear to mean the Broncos believe Murray has enough in the tank to be the RB1. Lat Murray doesn’t exactly have a huge ceiling, but considering he’s Denver’s RB1 at the moment, his floor is higher than many other running backs on the waiver wire. If you need a running back for the final stretch of the fantasy football regular season, Murray might be the ideal target. Since signing with the Broncos, Murray has seen just under 15 touches per game. Murray finished Sunday with 49 rushing yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and four receptions for another 23 yards. Murray has now found the end zone in three of his five games with the Broncos. Murray is a solid option now that Gordon is out of town. He should continue to see more than 15 touches per game. If the Broncos can get their red-zone offense in a better spot, Murray could score a slew of touchdowns to end the season. He could be one of those sneaky pickups that win the league.

WR, Baltimore Ravens

When he suffered an injury at the end of the season and was sidelined for a few games, he had no choice but to find another trustworthy pass catcher. A new addition is former Kansas City Chiefs wideout Demarcus Robinson. After hitting a season-high 64 yards on six receptions in Week 8 against the Buccaneers, Robinson slowed in Week 9, ending with just a single reception for 12 yards. However, after Baltimore’s bye week, Robinson dominated in Week 11. He caught every single one of his nine goals for a new season-high 128 yards. All that was missing was the touchdown, but it’s pretty clear Robinson earned signal caller Lamar Jackson’s trust. D-Rob shouldn’t be available on the waiver wire as we prepare for fantasy football’s final postseason push.

RB, Buffalo Bills

Despite failing to catch either of his goals, the rookie ended Week 11 with a season-high 86 yards on 11 carries. It’s been really encouraging to see how Cook’s vision and patience have improved since the start of the season. Now I know he will continue to play second fiddle, but Cook is just one injury away from becoming a league-winning pick-up.

WR Ton, New York Giants

Slayton continues to pace the team in receiving yards with all the injuries to New York’s exhausted wide receiver corps. Slayton’s prognosis has improved just because of Wan’Dale Robinson’s season-ending injury. essentially has no one outside of Slayton and the underperforming. After making three catches for 95 yards and a touchdown in Week 10, Slayton saw a season-high 10 goals in the Giants’ upset loss to the Detroit Lions. Slayton managed to haul five of those targets from 86 yards. He now has double-digit PPR points in five of his last six appearances. If you need help at the wide receiver position, Slayton should continue to serve as New York’s top wideout, driving the team on goals and distances.

Cleveland Browns

While DPJ shouldn’t be available in any fantasy leagues at this point, it’s still available in just under 40% of leagues. Peoples-Jones surpassed 50 receiving yards in the seventh straight game and eventually broke through the ceiling and scored his first touchdown of the season. Two weeks before its season debut, Peoples-Jones saw a significant increase in its production. If he’s still available in your league, grab him now. DPJ is a legitimate difference maker in Cleveland.

WR, Detroit Lions

The rookie wide receiver from Alabama has finally been marked for return from injured reserve. That means the Lions have three weeks to activate it. However, with Detroit having a short week and playing Thanksgiving, I would expect Williams to make his NFL debut in week 13. Still, he’s a guy worth tucking on your bench as he could be a solid flex option or WR3 in the fantasy football postseason. can’t be the only pass catcher to take aim. The injury is a bit of a concern, but Williams’ talent is why I’m going to bid on him and you should too!
