The bye weeks are finally over and now we can just roll with what we’ve got. But what if injuries and poor play from your roster means you don’t have enough? Well, in an effort to guide you through the playoff push, here’s a look at who will be some of the hot commodities off the fantasy football waiver wire in Week 12. Some of them I think are decent plays for this week and maybe beyond, but most of the wire has players that should probably stay right there.

It’s the last week of byes for the 2011 NFL season. And we lose some powerhouses this week at all four positions. Which means you're going to have dredge the waiver wire to save your team's chances of making the playoffs. Here's a few of the big names that are out.

WEEK 11 BYES: Houston, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Pittsburgh

Frank Gore, according to San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh is apparently "Fine" after suffering a knee injury against the New York Giants on Sunday.

The 49ers coach was emphatic that Gore will play next week, and the knee injury that kept him out of the majority of the second half is not serious. And that he wasn't put back in the game for precautionary reasons.

Here are quite a few names you should be able to get off the waiver wire to help you in your efforts to make a playoff push over the final four weeks of the regular season (if you’re postseason begins Week 14).

Due to injuries and due to byes this week there are a number of fantasy owners scrambling to find a one-week waiver wire replacement in their lineups for Week 8. Nowhere does this seem as prevalent as at the running back position.

And just because they are out there, just because they are perhaps going to get the bulk of the work, there are plenty of running backs whose match ups this week just aren’t worth the headache.

Here’s a look at the names I left off of the Week 8 Waiver Wire story and why you should avoid them, too.

Is C.J. Spiller finally fantasy relevant?
