Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Twelve

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

One week closer to the fantasy football playoffs. With injuries running rampant and fantasy rosters needing help, the waiver wire will provide some much needed help and depth for fantasy owners. There's plenty of big names waiting to be plucked from the free agent pool this week. It's time to prepare for week 12.

Keepers

Thomas Rawls- Running Back- Seattle Seahawks- With the news that Marshawn Lynch could be done for the season, Thomas Rawls made Lynch owners forget all about possibly losing their first round pick. In nine games this season, Rawls has rushed for over 600 yards and two touchdowns and is averaging over nine fantasy points per game. His week 11 performance saw him tear up the 49ers for 209 yards and a touchdown. If Lynch misses any time whatsoever, fantasy owners will be thrilled to have the rookie  on their roster. He could lead a fantasy team to a championship if Lynch is done for the season.

Javorius Allen- Running Back- Baltimore Ravens- This has not been a kind season for the Ravens. With Forsett breaking his hand and done for the season then Flacco tearing his ACL and missing the rest of the season, the Ravens can start preparing for next season. There has been one bright spot though. His name is Javorius Allen and he needs to be owned immediately. Week 11 saw Allen post his first double digit fantasy points game and there could very well be more of those in the tank this season. Now the bell cow for the Ravens, fantasy owners could fill a major need with the addition of the former USC Trojan.

Sleepers

Spencer Ware- Running Back- Kansas City Chiefs- Coming out of seemingly nowhere in week 11, Spencer Ware rushed for 96 yards  and scored twice while putting up over 20 fantasy points. Charcandrick West's fifteen minutes of fame may be over. If owners miss out on the top two targets in Allen and Rawls, Ware may end up being more than just a consolation  prize.

Ahmad Bradshaw- Running Back- Indianapolis Colts- With Bradshaw back in the fold in Indianapolis, the Frank Gore experiment may be just about over. Even if Gore gets his share of touches, there will be plenty of touches for Bradshaw as well. After posting over 17 fantasy points in week 11, fantasy owners in need of running back depth should take a serious look at Bradshaw. He's especially useful in PPR formats as he caught four balls for 20 yards versus the Falcons.

Jeepers

Shaun Draughn- Running Back- San Francisco 49ers- Unless you're playing in a PPR league, Shaun Draughn will provide little to no value for fantasy owners. He rushed for a measly 37 yards on 12 carries but caught eight balls for 40 yards. Standard league fantasy owners will want to stay away from the dumpster fire that is the San Francisco 49ers this season.

J.J. Nelson- Wide Receiver- Arizona Cardinals- With just too many mouths to feed in the desert, the Cardinals wide out had himself a breakout game in week 11 to the tune of four catches for 142 yards and a touchdown. He posted over 20 fantasy points versus the Bengals in week 11 but with all the options for Carson Palmer,  it will be difficult for Nelson to repeat that performance. He is however someone to keep an eye on at this point.
