The 2022 Fantasy football playoffs are just around the corner and if you're a playoff contender who hasn't been using the Fantasy football waiver wire to strengthen your roster, you've been missing out on big opportunities. Jeff Wilson, Christian Watson and George Pickens were all rostered in fewer than 50% of CBS Sports Fantasy football leagues at varying points of the season and all are worth starting consideration now. But can you still work the Week 12 Fantasy football waiver wire to find players with a shot of actually making it into your Fantasy football lineups?
The wide receiver landscape has shifted dramatically in recent weeks with several rookies either stepping into larger roles because of NFL injuries or simply earning more responsibility with their play. So which Week 12 waiver wire options could help your lineup now, and who are some of the speculative adds that could add value come playoff time? Before determining who to target on the Week 12 Fantasy football waiver wire, be sure to see what SportsLine Fantasy football analyst Jacob Gibbs has to say.
Gibbs uses a data-driven approach that has helped him consistently provide accurate rankings at every position. He has proven to be one of the nation's most accurate Fantasy rankers in recent years -- posting the eighth-most accurate results over the past three seasons, according to Fantasy Pros.
Now, he's revealed his top waiver wire pick from among the widely available Fantasy football free agents entering Week 12. You can see his top Fantasy NFL waiver wire picks and full analysis over at SportsLine.
Top Fantasy football waiver wire picks for Week 12
One player Gibbs is advising Fantasy players to target on the Week 12 waiver wire: Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore. The Western Michigan product caught 95 passes for 1,292 yards and 10 touchdowns in his final season with the Broncos. The Chiefs would go on to make him the No. 54 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and many speculated that he might be part of a committee used to replace Tyreek Hill.
Through the first 10 weeks of the season, that didn't happen. Moore played 35% of the snaps or fewer in every game and was only targeted 14 times in nine games. However, the Chiefs turned to Moore when Kadarius Toney left last week's matchup with the Chargers and Moore responded by catching five of his six targets for 63 yards. With Toney likely out and Moore available in over 90% of CBS Sports Fantasy football leagues, he is worth rostering if you have the space to see how things shake out in the Kansas City wide receiver's room.
Gibbs is also strongly recommending Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks as a Week 12 waiver wire pickup. Yet another rookie wide receiver, Burks saw moderate involvement in the Titans passing attack during the first month of the season but saw his progress halted by a toe injury that cost him six weeks.
He returned in Week 10 and was targeted six times before breaking out in Week 11. Burks was targeted eight times last week and hauled in seven receptions for 111 yards. With opposing defenses focusing so much of their energy on slowing down Derrick Henry, there are going to be opportunities for the Tennessee passing attack to win down the field. Burks is only rostered in 28% of CBS leagues at the moment and could be poised for a strong close to the season.
How to set your Week 12 waiver wire claims
Gibbs is also all-in on an overlooked running back with a serious chance to shine. This player is widely available and could be a huge boost to your Fantasy football lineup. You can only see who it is at SportsLine.
