2023 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets: Week 12
It is time to add players off the fantasy football waiver wire as we head into Week 12. The moves made now are highly important as the fantasy football playoffs itch closer.
This week I am only bringing you four players instead of our typical five. That is because this week’s waiver wire is shallow. That is partly because several of the waiver wire options for this week have been covered in recent weeks. You can find previous targets that are still worth adding below.
- Week 2: Romeo Doubs
- Week 3: Josh Reynolds
- Week 4: Marvin Mims, Tyjae Spears
- Week 5: Jameson Williams Michael Wilson Tank Bigsby, Keaton Mitchell
- Week 6: Josh Downs, Rashee Rice, K.J. Osborn
- Week 7: Kareem Hunt
- Week 8: Kyler Murray, Taysom Hill, Darrell Henderson, Dalton Kincaid
- Week 10: Joshua Dobbs, Demario Douglas, Will Levis, Trey McBride, Jonnu Smith
- Week 11: Keaton Mitchell, Noah Brown, Ty Chandler
For the majority of the season, Charbonnet has been the lower priority while splitting carries with Walker. With Walker out, Charbonnet finished with 15 carries for 47 yards. As long as Charbonnet is the lead back, he is worth starting.
It is likely Walker will miss at least one game. The Seahawks have a short week as they play on Thanksgiving. At a minimum, Charbonnet is a worthy addition and will remain a premier handcuff throughout the season.
Odell Beckham Jr.–43.8%
Baltimore Ravens receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is another player who could see an increase in opportunities because of an injury. With tight end Mark Andrews injured, Beckham could see more targets. That makes him a solid fantasy football waiver wire target for Week 12.
I have not been high on Beckham in 2023, but he has produced the last handful of weeks. In his last three outings, he has eclipsed more than 10 non-PPR points, the most notable being when he logged four catches on seven targets for 116 yards. That came with Andrews injured.
Beckham will not be lead receiver in Baltimore with Andrews out. That honor will go to rookie Zay Flowers. Still, Beckham’s increase in targets makes him a player that can be rostered.
Los Angeles Rams receiver Tutu Atwell was a waiver wire target back in Week 3. However, the return of Cooper Kupp limited his targets and owners sent him back to waivers. Now, heading into Week 12, Kupp is dealing with an ankle injury. That makes Atwell relevant again.
The logic here is simple. If Kupp is out, Atwell should be rostered. In four games without Kupp, Atwell has three positive outings. In six games with Kupp, he has one decent fantasy performance.
I won’t drag this longer than it needs to be. Kupp is out which means it’s time to add Atwell.
Green Bay Packers receiver Jayden Reed is another player that I have not been high on this season; however, it looks like we are at a point where he can be picked up off the fantasy football waiver wire.
Reed has produced in back-to-back games while logging a touchdown and more than 80 total yards. It feels like he is becoming a bigger point of emphasis in the offense and he is taking advantage of that.
I’ll be honest, I’d feel much better about Reed in best-ball leagues. This is a guy that is hard to know when to start or bench. If you play best ball, the swing on Reed is less risky and easier to manage.
