WAIVER WIRE WEEK 12
Week 11 has come and gone, but it’s not time to relax. As the season rolls on with more injuries, that just means it’s all that more important to be watching the waiver wire. There will be no teams on bye for week 12, so the waiver wire should be the best it’s been for a while. However, there are two more weeks where there will be teams on bye, so don’t let your guard down.
Three games will be played on Thursday the 24th for Thanksgiving Day. Make sure you check your lineups and have them ready to go.
