The 2018 NFL season is 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 Quarterbacks for Week 12.
Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens
Jackson didn’t light it up through the air on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals (13-for-19 for 150 yards with an interception), in his first NFL start, but he did run for 117 yards (on 27 attempts) and post a solid fantasy outing anyway.
Assuming Joe Flacco (right hip) remains out in Week 12, Jackson should start again in a very favorable matchup. The Oakland Raiders have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in eight straight games, and in nine of 10 on the season. After that, nice matchups against the Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming from Week 13-15 for whoever is under center for Baltimore.
Jackson’s hold on the starting job may be subject to Flacco’s status, for better or worse. But the rookie is definitely still worth adding as a QB2 in 12 and 14-team leagues, if only for the upside potential.
