Week 12 Waiver wire pickups

So with that being stated, here are your Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups – Week 12.
QB – Chad Henne / Jacksonville Jaguars:  The Jaguars put on an offensive show versus one of the better defenses in the league in week 11 which is why you’ll be seeing a bunch of Jags players on here. Just remember they are still Jaguars and are liable to be terrible the rest of the year. But you gotta like that performance by Henne, I think he gives them a better chance to be productive on offense.
QB – Colin Kaepernick / San Francisco 49ers:  Colin is getting the start for the 49ers over the injured Alex Smith on Monday Night Football. Watch the status of Smith, if he misses another week Kaepernick will could be a sneaky start in week 12.
QB – Michael Vick / Philadelphia Eagles:  After the Nick Foles experiment in week 11 failed miserable against one of the worst passing defenses in the league, it should be noted that Michael Vick would have been better if healthy. And it’s also worth noting that a lot of teams dropped Vick last week…
RB – Beanie Wells / Arizona Cardinals: Beanie is most likely going to be active for this weeks game, making things interesting after LaRod Stephens-Howling just went nuts on the Falcons. I liked Beanie’s chances before LaRod had that nice game.
RB – Bryce Brown / Philadelphia Eagles:  LeSean McCoy left the game late due to a concussion and since we all know it’s not a guarantee that a player comes back quick (See Alex Smith), time to pick this rookie up.
RB – Ronnie Hillman / Denver Broncos:  Early reports are that Willis McGahee might miss 6-8 weeks, making Hillman a very high priority in ALL leagues. You gotta like a player that gets to play in a good situation, and Peyton Manning is a very good situation.
RB – Lance Ball / Denver Broncos:  Ronnie Hillman may be the guy most people want but it could be Lance Ball that gets up to half of the work. And against the Chargers it was Ball that looked like the better player in the box score.
RB – Jalen Parmele / Jacksonville Jaguars:  The Rashad Jennings experiment is over. Rashad was relegated to change-of-pace and return man duties. Leaving Jalen to take the majority of carries. And Jalen actually played well. Don’t look into Jalen for much work as MJD says he is close to returning.
WR – Danario Alexander / San Diego Chargers:  Really? This guy is still available in leagues! Someone fix this and by someone I mean you.
WR – Julien Edelman / New England Patriots:  Now that we know Gronk is OUT for a big chunk of the remaining year, this could mean a lot more work for the everything man Edelman.
WR – Justin Blackmon / Jacksonville Jaguars: Another Jaguar makes the list, and the rookie almost doubled his yardage total for the entire year in one game. Don’t expect that again, but it was obvious, Chad Henne liked throwing his way.
WR – TY Hilton / Indianapolis Colts:  The concussion sustained by Donnie Avery paved the way for TY to get more work. And with the Colts playing catch-up, TY did not disappoint. If Avery can’t suit up in week 12 he might start opposite Reggie Wayne.
WR – Brandon Stokley / Denver Broncos: Brandon is loving every minute of being back with Peyton. He’s having his best year since leaving the Colts and doing just enough to warrant a flier in deep leagues.
WR – Emanuel Sanders / Pittsburgh Steelers:  With Antonio Brown still sitting on the sideline hurt, Sanders was the leading receiver versus the Ravens. If Leftwich and Sanders get another start, he might be even better in week 12.
TE – Dwayne Allen / Indianapolis Colts: With Coby Fleener still OUT, Dwayne Allen has done really well. At this point, if Fleener is OUT again, I would rather have him over guys like Brent Celek and Martellus Bennett.
TE – Marcedes Lewis / Jacksonville Jaguars:  With Chad Henne maybe at the helm, Lewis might return to form. A big might, but worth a look if you are desperate and the Jags do turn to Henne.
DEF – Minnesota Vikings:  After a bye week, this once decent defense might return to form.
