The 2019 NFL season is now 11 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire and hoping they can help you secure a playoff spot. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-20 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 team defenses for Week 12.
Cleveland Browns, D/ST
In Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Browns intercepted Mason Rudolph, sacked him four times and allowed just seven points. The loss of defensive end Myles Garrett for the rest of the season due to a suspension will hurt, but Week 12 will provide a solid matchup.
The Miami Dolphins have been generally better lately, but eight of 10 opposing defenses have posted double-digit fantasy points against them (Yahoo! scoring). Nine of 10 have registered at least three sacks.
Facing Ryan Fitzpatrick always invites opportunities for a defense. Even without their best player the Browns are next up, as a high-floor, high-ceiling streamer.
