10 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets Heading Into Week 12

With a team-high 14 targets on Sunday, Tre'Quan Smith showed he's still a big part of the Saints' offense. Who else is worth picking up?

We've only got a couple of weeks left in the fantasy football regular season. Having a nearly 11-week sample-size to work with gives us a good idea of what we're going to get out of some players, the ever-evolving NFL landscape also means that there are plenty of situations that you need to react to with a much smaller sample.

Teams are still shuffling starts, they're still dealing with injuries, and they're still having new players earn increased volume.

It sometimes requires taking a gamble on someone who hasn't proven themselves over a big sample, but there are still opportunities to find players on the waiver wire who can end up being solid contributors for your fantasy squad down the stretch.

On the other side of things, the 11 weeks of information we have also give us plenty of information to identify who the solid fantasy performers and what the good matchups are. This lets you be pretty confident in grabbing someone off the waiver wire to start at any of the common streaming positions (quarterback, tight end, defense), meaning you don't have to burn roster spots carrying backups at those positions.

Whatever your team's specific needs, here's a look at the top 10 fantasy football waiver wire targets for for Week 12.
