Considering the injury report as you address the Week 12 fantasy waiver wire

The fantasy football waiver wire is critical to league success. We break down key injuries from Week 11 that will impact decisions for the Week 12 waiver wire.

Several key skill position players were injured on Week 11 and their status will be up in the air as we get into the brunt of the Week 12 schedule. Below, we’ll run down some potential waiver wire adds to keep your eye on if these injured stars aren’t able to play.

Rashid Shaheed, WR, New Orleans Saints

The Saints placed receiver Michael Thomas on injured reserve on Tuesday, which means Shaheed is the next man up for the Saints. He’s had three games of 80+ yards this season and had a season-high nine targets last Sunday in the game that Thomas ended up leaving with an injury.

He’s still going to be primarily used as a deep threat which means there’ll be a bit of boom or bust in his game, but it doesn’t change the fact he’s the Saints’ No. 2 receiver for the foreseeable future.

Tutu Atwell, WR, Los Angeles Rams

While Atwell only had three targets last week, he could be in line for an expanded role this week due to injuries to Cooper Kipp (ankle) and Puka Nacua (shoulder) that could keep them out for Sunday’s game. Atwell had a 30-yard catch against the Cardinals last season and could be in for a bump in production in their rematch against Arizona on Sunday.

Jack Stoll, TE, Philadelphia Eagles

Dallas Goedert has already been declared out for Sunday’s game against Buffalo, which means that Stoll will be in line for a second straight week as the Eagles’ starting tight end. He caught his lone target for three yards last week but could end up getting some more volume on Sunday in what will be his second week working with the No. 1 offense in practice.

Isaiah Likely, TE, Baltimore Ravens

With Mark Andrews out for the season, Likely is the new top dog in the Ravens tight end room. While it might be asking too much for Likely to replicate all of Andrews’ production (544 yards, one touchdown), he’ll be a factor in the Ravens’ offense going forward. Plus he had a 100-yard game in last year’s finale, so he’s proven that he can be a reliable pass catcher.
