Injuries and Waiver Wire week 12 2022




Aaron Rodgers (Oblique) - Aaron Rodgers injured his oblique and could not finish the game. He is also dealing with a broken thumb.



Brandon Bolden (Calf) - Brandon Bolden injured his calf and could not return.

Michael Carter (Ankle) - Michael Carter suffered an ankle sprain and was not able to finish the game. The severity of his injury is unclear.

Travis Etienne Jr. (Foot) - Travis Etienne could not return after suffering a foot injury. Post-game reports suggest that he should be able to play next week.

Damien Harris (Thigh) - Damien Harris is expected to be week-to-week with a thigh injury.

Najee Harris (Abdominal) - Najee Harris could not finish the game due to an abdominal injury.

Christian McCaffrey (Knee) - Christian McCaffrey played through "knee irritation" this week. His status will need to be monitored throughout this week.

Elijah Mitchell (Knee) - RB Elijah Mitchell suffered an MCL Sprain and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with this injury.





Lance McCutcheon (Shoulder) - Lance McCutcheon suffered a shoulder injury on Sunday and could not finish the game.

Darnell Mooney (Ankle) - The Bears fear that Darnell Mooney suffered a season-ending ankle injury on Sunday.

Allen Robinson (Foot) - Allen Robinson needs foot surgery and will miss the rest of this season.





None of note.







DeShaun Watson (CLE) - Browns QB DeShaun Watson will finally make his Browns debut in week 13, in a revenge game vs the Texans. Watson has shown he can be a top-five QB when he's on the field in 2018, 2019 and 2020 (albeit that was years ago) and to be able to get someone of that caliber off the waiver wire this late in the season would be a huge boost to any QB-needy fantasy team.

Also Consider:

Mike White (NYJ)





Samaje Perine (CIN) - Bengals starting RB Joe Mixon went down with a concussion during week 11's game vs the Steelers. In Mixon's absence, Perine tallied four receptions for 52 yards and three touchdowns, plus nine carries for 27 yards in week 11. In week 12, Perine rushed 17 times for 56 yards, while also hauling in four receptions for 35 yards. Keep an eye on Mixon's status, but for now, let's continue adding Perine. He's available in 64.5 percent of NFL Fantasy leagues.

Gus Edwards (BAL) - Edwards returned from his injury this week and rushed 16 times for 52 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. He should be the lead back for the Ravens as long as he is healthy. He's available in roughly 85 percent of NFL fantasy leagues.

Alexander Mattison (MIN) - At this point in the season, we should be prioritizing premiere handcuffs off the waiver wire. If Alexander Mattison is available in your league, you should take a look at adding him as insurance for later in the season.

Also Consider:

Latavius Murray (DEN), Kyren Williams (LA)

Treylon Burks (TEN) - Treylon Burks has finally started to show some upside in this Titans offense. The first-round rookie had 111 yards on Thursday night in week 11, which marks his first game over 100 yards in his career. He followed that performance up with another 70 yards and scooped up a fumble recovery for a touchdown. The Titans desperately need a spark on offense, and perhaps Burks is that guy. The Titans have games vs the Eagles, and Jaguars over the next two weeks. Burks is available in about 77% of NFL Fantasy leagues. If he's available on your waiver wire, he could be a great addition down the stretch.

Donovan Peoples-Jones (CLE) - Everything that has been written about DPJ in this section previously remains the same, and perhaps he's even more valuable now with the return of DeShaun Watson this week. He's been a FLEX option for most of this season and could have high-end WR3 upside in good matchups.

Zay Jones (JAX) - Zay Jones had one of the best games of his career in week 12, hauling in 11 receptions for 145 yards and a two-point conversion. He's been a steady FLEX option most of this season and we should expect that to continue with upcoming matchups vs Detroit and Tennessee over the next two weeks. Zay is available in 76 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues.

Parris Campbell Jr. (IND) - Week 10 was the Colts' first game under new HC Jeff Saturday and the return of QB Matt Ryan. Campbell led the Colts in receiving, hauling in seven receptions for 76 yards and a TD. In week 11, Campbell stayed productive, with five receptions for 67 yards. Campbell remains a waiver wire target.

Also Consider:

Darius Slayton (NYG), Christian Watson (GB), Nico Collins (HOU)

Foster Moreau (LV) - Foster Moreau has been filling in for an injured Darren Waller this season. While Moreau's production has been sporadic, he's scored over 12 fantasy points in two of the last three weeks. At a position where there is not a whole lot of viable options, Moreau is available in over 93 percent of NFL fantasy leagues.

Jelani Woods (IND)
