Top fantasy soccer waiver wire pickups for Week 12

Jonathan Williams, RB, Colts. Taking over within the second half for an injured Marlon Mack (hand), Williams ran everywhere in the Jaguars, totaling 116 yards on the bottom (13 carries) and one other 31 via the air (one goal). It’s unclear how lengthy Mack will probably be out, however after fracturing his proper hand, he’ll possible be out for at the very least a number of video games. That means former backup Jordan Wilkins, who’s missed the previous two video games due to an ankle harm, or Williams figures to start out for the foreseeable future. Because Wilkins did not even apply final week, Williams is the precedence pickup in all leagues this week, however Wilkins must be added, as effectively.
Derrius Guice, RB, Redskins. We did not have excessive hopes for Guice this week, however after a gradual begin enjoying behind Adrian Peterson, he took benefit of rubbish time, catching a display go and taking it 45 yards to the home. It was Guice’s solely reception of the sport (two targets). He added 24 dashing yards on seven carries — two fewer carries than Peterson however just one much less yard. Guice will possible proceed to separate touches with Peterson within the quick time period, however it might make sense for him to progressively earn extra enjoying over the following few weeks. He’s price proudly owning, as his schedule is very favorable going ahead, particularly in Weeks 14 (Packers) and 16 (Giants).

Bo Scarbrough, RB, Lions. Even with Ty Johnson lively, Scarbrough began and acquired 14 carries in Week 11, main the crew comfortably. He picked up 56 yards and a rating, typically trying strong (although he wasn’t focused within the receiving recreation). The Lions are as unpredictable as any crew with their backfield, however at this level, Scarbrough is pretty much as good a wager as any to be the crew’s featured again going ahead. Detroit is not an incredible operating crew, however Scarbrough has loads of landing upside in customary leagues.
Deebo Samuel, WR, 49ers. Even with Emmanuel Sanders lively, Samuel was the 49ers high receiver for the second straight week. All instructed, he hauled in eight-of-10 targets for 133 yards — his second straight 100-yard recreation. Samuel is owned in 53 % of Yahoo leagues, so he won’t be out there in your league, but when he’s, he is price a declare.
WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running again | Wide receiver | Tight finish
Ryan Griffin, TE, Jets. Griffin has had at the very least 4 catches and 50 yards in three of the previous 4 video games, which is about all you’ll be able to ask for from a waiver wire TE. In Week 11, he greater than doubled that yardage whole, hauling in all 5 targets for 109 yards and a rating. Consistency is perhaps a difficulty for Griffin, however with a extremely favorable matchup in opposition to the Raiders on deck, he must be the highest TE streamer of the week.
