Week 11 on the 2021 NFL schedule is nearly in the books. Week 12 brings us three games on Thanksgiving to start the week’s slate, and two teams on a bye (Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals).

Here are nine early-must adds from your Week 12 fantasy football waiver wire.

Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, New England Patriots

The return of Damien Harris (concussion) took some of the fantasy buzz off Stevenson heading into last Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons. But the rookie out of Oklahoma still led the team with 12 carries for 69 yards along with one catch for six yards.

The upcoming matchups aren’t great for the Patriots running backs, with the Tennessee Titans (Week 12), two games against the Buffalo Bills (Week 13 and Week 16) and the Indianapolis Colts (Week 15) on the slate around a Week 14 bye. All three entered Week 11 in the top-10 in fantasy points allowed to running backs (Yahoo!, 0.5-point PPR).

But Stevenson clearly has a role that isn’t going away whether Harris is healthy or not. He’s on the radar as a flex play in 12-team leagues even in some tough upcoming matchups, and there’s still plenty of room to add him.
