The 2020 NFL season is now 11 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire. Every year a no name blows up over the first month and ends up being a top-50 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire running backs for Week 12.
Frank Gore, RB, New York Jets
Gore had 15 carries for 61 yards and a touchdown, along with two catches for 10 yards, against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. An ankle injury took La’Mical Perine out of the game early, but so much for the rookie out of Florida becoming the Jets’ lead back out of the bye.

If Perine misses time, or even if he doesn’t, the next three matchups for the Jets (Week 12-Miami Dolphins, Week 13-Las Vegas Raiders, Week 14-Seattle Seahawks) puts Gore into the conversation as a usable fantasy back. Adam Gase’s insistence on giving him double-digit carries raises the floor.
Gore is not going to light the world on fire, and the Jets’ offense is the league’s worst. But in 12 and 14-team leagues, with a bias toward standard scoring, there is some flex appeal here.
