The NFL season is 11 weeks old and with bye weeks still going you need to be on top of making your fantasy football waiver wire claims for the upcoming week. Every year there are a handful of players that come out of nowhere to have big opening weeks and turn into fantasy gold throughout the season. With that in mind we bring to you nine players that fantasy owners should immediately try to get on their teams in Week 12.

Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers

ESPN Ownership: 60.5%
Yahoo! Ownership: 70%

Olsen has been out since suffering a broken foot in Week 2. But coming out of the Panthers bye, he is expected to return to practice on Monday and play Week 12 against the New York Jets.

Olsen finished as a top-10 fantasy tight in five straight seasons from 2012-2016, with top-five finishes in each of the last three.

Olsen may be on some sort of snap count in his first few games back. But simply being back on the field puts him in line to be a top target for Cam Newton, and Olsen has to owned in all leagues.
