Dr. Roto: Week 12's Waiver Wire Wednesday

Dr. Roto lists his favorite waiver wire adds by position in Week 12.

Daily Dr. Roto — November 23, 2016

Waiver Wire Wednesday


Colin Kaepernick — If you are wondering whether or not Kaepernick is a QB1 in Fantasy Football the answer is yes. His floor is around 200 yards passing and one passing TD and 50 yards rushing (and possibly a TD). His ceiling is 300/2 and even more rushing yards. If you need upside, he is the guy to own.

Ryan Tannehill — The team is fighting for the playoffs and Tannehill has proven to be up to the challenge. He continues to improve each week and is no longer making critical errors in pressure situations.

Josh McCown — He is my QB sleeper this week. The Giants are due for a stinker and McCown has loads of weapons on offense. He just needs to avoid the big sack and untimely interceptions.

Running Backs

Wendell Smallwood — My number two waiver wire pickup of the week. We know that Ryan Matthews is a slow healer and Smallwood is a better fit in the Eagles offense anyway. It’s time to see what he can do.

Adrian Peterson — Stash and cash just in case AP returns in Week 15--just in time for the two biggest weeks of the Fantasy season.

Rex Burkhead — Don’t laugh, but he will see touches now that Gio Bernard is done for the year with a torn ACL. Imagine John Kuhn with more speed and better hands.

Alex Collins — If Thomas Rawls happens to get injured, Collins would be the lead back for the Seahawks.

Christine Michael — There is a reasonable chance he gets carries on Monday night. He might be a fill-in, or he might just steal the job from Starks depending on how well he plays.

Wide Receivers

Tyler Boyd — My number one waiver wire target this week. He is a special player who will have a chance to shine with Green out for the season. I love him in DFS formats too.

Brandon LaFell — Assuming Tyler Eifert sees double coverage, LaFell might find himself getting 10-12 targets per game the rest of the way.

Sammy Watkins Roto — I am not sure that he will ever be 100% healthy this season, but it appears as if he will be back by Week 13 and so long as the Bills are in the playoff hunt, they will see what Watkins can do to help them win.

Adam Thielen — Diggs is attracting tons of attention, making Thielen a very sneaky pickup.

Dorial Green-Beckham — I am officially done with Nelson Agholor. DGB has started to pick up his game and is someone I am monitoring closely in dynasty leagues.

Ted Ginn, Jr. — He is the WR2 in Carolina and has gotten a bunch of targets the past few weeks. If your league gives bonus points for long distance TDs, give Ginn a shot.

Tight Ends

Austin Hooper — Jacob Tamme is on IR which means that Hooper will get a chance to cement his role in the Falcons offense.

Jared Cook — He looked sensational last Sunday night connecting with Rodgers all over the field. Jermichael Finley was a huge weapon for Rodgers in the past, so there is a reason to believe that Cook could assume that type of role quickly in their high octane offense.

Vance McDonald — McDonald has proven to be a steady player for the 49ers and is perhaps Kaepernick's most consistent target.

Will Tye — It seems like Eli Manning is starting to trust him again.
