Quite the odd week, huh? In Week 11, Buffalo won a home game in Detroit, the 9-1 Eagles squeaked by the Colts, 17 combined punts in Jets-Patriots ended with a New England punt return for a touchdown, the Lions downed the depleted Giants, and the Cowboys obliterated the Vikings in Minnesota. Fantasy-wise, Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, Travis Kelce, and Tony Pollard led the field with their huge performances.

There are very few options on this week’s waiver wire whom you would confidently enter into your starting lineup for the foreseeable future. Alas, the show must go on.

1. Samaje Perine, RB, Bengals

Recommended FAAB to spend: $10

Bengals starting RB Joe Mixon suffered a concussion in Sunday’s win over Pittsburgh and will not play on Sunday against the Titans. Veteran running back Samaje Perine steps in as a potential flex-play with some elite receiving upside. Perine caught a franchise RB record three touchdown receptions last Sunday and is slated to face a stingy Titans defense in Week 12, which does a fine job in eliminating the run (82.2 rushing yards per game allowed). Perine’s fantasy prospects largely rest upon the shoulders of his receiving work.

2. James Cook, RB, Bills

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5

I suppose the acquisition of Nyheim Hines did very little to dampen Cook’s chances of becoming more featured in Buffalo’s offense. While Cook is far from becoming the Bills’ go-to back, he has earned his keep as the RB2. It’s worth noting that last Sunday, during Buffalo’s eighth drive of the game up 12, Cook logged 45 yards on five carries. His status and volume playing behind the incumbent RB1 Devin Singletary are worth monitoring.

3. Skyy Moore, WR, Chiefs

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5

Maybe it’s not Kadarius Toney season after all..? Behind Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster – and at times Mecole Hardman – there exists nothing but a revolving door of receivers for Patrick Mahomes to target. Sometimes it’s Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, or Toney, which we saw in Week 11. However, it was Moore’s turn last Sunday night in Los Angeles. The Western Michigan standout nearly matched his season total in catches with five. Moore is an interesting addition because of his diverse skill set and the fact there’s a real path to weekly fantasy relevance due to the injuries ahead of him.

4. Demarcus Robinson, WR, Ravens

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5-$10

Robinson is coming off his best performance of the season, where he caught all nine of his targets for 128 yards on a season-high 78 percent of Baltimore’s offensive snaps in Week 10. By comparison, Devin Duvernay has nine targets in his past four games combined. With Rashod Bateman on injured reserve and Mark Andrews regaining his form, Robinson presents some serious long-term value as Baltimore’s most productive wideout.

5. Parris Campbell, WR, Colts

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5-$10

It is hard not to feel good for the oft-injured Campbell, who is having a career year. His target numbers and snap share bode well with his WR2 title behind Michael Pittman Jr. Campbell leads the NFL in slot snaps and possesses the athleticism to score from anywhere. Depending on his matchup, he can be a plug-in receiver in a pinch.

6. Juwan Johnson, TE, Saints

Recommended FAAB to spend: $5-$10

The third-year tight end cannot stop scoring touchdowns. A whopping 16 percent of his catches this season have ended in a score. This is far from reliable production, but as the TE position dwindles in viable options, Johnson emerges as a potential starter. New Orleans’ porous defense incentivizes Andy Dalton – or whoever leads the offense – to throw it, making Johnson a prime beneficiary.
