Waiver Wire Focus: Week 12

In the last 24 hours I have dealt with the biggest dick head I’ve ever come across in a fantasy league.

This dick head is a recently successful fantasy owner, who can’t handle it. He was dead last in the league last year, and has sole ownership of first this year. Trash talk is fine. Being a dick head isn’t. It’s a fine line sometimes, but what ever that line is, he’s more than lapped it. He talks trash with a mediocre, lucky-at-best, team. He has also gotten away with a trade rape, which included him receiving Megatron.

His most recent example of dickheadedness started with the trade talks we had on Friday morning. My La’Veon Bell, Victor Cruz, and Percy Harvin for his Megatron. He wanted A.J. Green instead of Cruz. Didn’t work out, and I was very cordial about the whole situation.

Moving on to Sunday, I have a bad loss this weekend. Real bad. So bad, the other team didn’t have a defense playing, bad.  Monday morning I wake up to the dick head text below…

BURN IN FANTASY HELL. Bad weeks don’t happen? Screw you. The fantasy gods won’t let him take the title, and I hope it’s my team (who is still very much in contention) who strips the trophy from his stupid fingers, and then kicks him in the nuts repeatedly.

It was a tough week all the way around for me, and the dude (who actually used to be my boss) caught me at a bad time. Anyways, here are some waiver wire targets that will help your squad kick dick heads in the dick come championship time.

Bobby Rainey, Tampa Bay

It looks like the Bucs just have an outright great running game who ever they plug in. Rainey is the most recent back to show off ran all over the Falcons on Sunday. Rainey went for 168 rushing yards and 3 total touchdowns. He’s clearly the upside pick in the current Bucs’ backfield. However, Rainey does have the potential to troll your lineup. It just seems like the successful Tampa Bay running back thing to do.

Rashad Jennings, Oakland

With Pryor dinged up, the run-first Raiders lean on Jennings a lot. He has made the most of it to this point. Against a legit Houston defense, who stacked the box all day, he broke off 150 yards and a touchdown. Most of the yards were from a beastly 80-yard run in the third quarter.

Montee Ball, Denver

Moreno owners should be worried. Ball looks to have taken over the close-to-the-end-zone duties, scoring two goal line touchdowns. Come fantasy time fantasy owners can never have enough goal line running backs on their bench.

Jerricho Cotchery, Pittsburgh

We can’t ignore ole Crotchery any longer. At least one touchdown in the last three contests (five overall) will land you on this article. While still very touchdown dependent, he’s a viable WR4.

Michael Crabtree, San Francisco

Crabtree returned to practice last week and should be playing in the next week or two. Kaepernick needs a true deep threat, and Crabtree could be the wildcard that carries you through the fantasy playoffs.

John Carlson, Minnesota

Carlson was on this list last week, and he’s here again because you didn’t pick him up. J-Carl went for 12-167-1 last week and is a great fill in for Reed owners should Reed miss time.
