With Denard Robinson injured, Devin Gardner is worth a look this week.
At this point in the season, most fantasy rosters are set and getting prepped for league semi-final matchups. However, we couldn’t ignore some valuable waiver opportunities if you are looking for a little fine-tuning.
Devin Gardner, QB-Michigan
If you are desperate at quarterback and have been left without any insurance behind Denard Robinson, it would be wise to scoop up Gardner, especially since he has a decent Week 12 matchup.
Jordan Parker, RB-Middle Tennessee
We put Parker on this list a few weeks ago when Ben Cunningham suffered a season-ending knee injury. If he is still floating around on waivers, owners would be wise to take advantage of a Week 12 matchup against South Alabama.
Matt Brown, RB-Temple
Montel Harris left last week’s game after a first-half injury against Cincinnati. Brown, who is returning from injury himself, may wind up getting the nod against Army if Harris can’t go this week.
Curtis McNeal, RB-USC
Reportedly, starting running back Silas Redd is battling an ankle injury. If he is not 100% by the weekend, look for Curtis McNeal to get the starting nod for a second straight game.
Tre Mason, RB-Auburn
Mason is nothing more than a one-week value play, but a matchup against Alabama A&M makes him worth a waiver claim.
Justin Brown, WR-Oklahoma
Brown has at least six receptions, 80 yards receiving, and a touchdown in each of his last two games. Those numbers might take a bump this week when the Sooners travel to Morgantown to take on West Virginia.
William Dukes, WR-Florida Atlantic
Dukes has posted at least 75 yards receiving or six receptions in eight of ten games this season. If he can find the end zone in Week 12, Dukes would be worthy of a WR#3 or WR#4 in deeper leagues.
