Fantasy Football: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 12

  • Teams on Bye Week: 



    Latavius Murray (RB) – Broncos:

    On Monday, Melvin Gordon was waived by the Broncos, opening the door for Murray to take full control of this backfield.  He has scored more than 10.3 fantasy points in three of his last four contests, averaging 12.0 fantasy points since Week 7 with Gordon in the lineup. Murray is not highly rostered, so fantasy GMs need to prioritize him when waivers run this week. He is going to be the Broncos starting RB for the remainder of the season and is a must-add in every league. If fantasy GMs are in desperate need of a RB2, they should be willing to dump the remainder of their FAAB on acquiring him. 

    Use #1 Waiver Priority: Yes

    FAAB Budget %: 100%


    Cam Akers (RB) – Rams:

    Since the Rams are awful this year, fantasy GMs may not have noticed the takeover in their backfield this weekend.  Akers received 14 rush attempts for 61 yards, which was twice as many as Kyren Williams had, while Darrell Henderson only had two attempts. With Matthew Stafford potentially missing time due to a concussion, Akers may be leaned on more in Week 12 and beyond.  The Rams have a fairly light schedule for the remainder of the fantasy regular season and playoffs for RBs, so Akers should be scooped up in every league.
