The 2016 NFL season is 11 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire in order to make a playoff push. Every year a no name blows up in over the first few weeks of the season 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 Wide Receivers for Week 12.

Parker is coming off of his second straight solid game, as he caught five of eight targets for 103 yards against the Chargers two weeks ago. The former 2015 first-round pick appears to be putting it all together, and his emergence has helped the Dolphins win five straight games and contend for a playoff spot.
This week he’ll have a favorable matchup against the 49ers, who are 14th in pass defense and are allowing 7.3 yards per attempt. They’ve also allowed 23 touchdowns through the air, tied for the second-most in the league. Parker is an excellent streaming candidate this week, and might even be worth a look long-term. — Christoph Ludwig
