Fantasy Fox: Top 30 waiver-wire pickups for NFL Week 12

BY foxsports • November 18, 2014

Here's my listing of fantasy football's top 30 free agents, heading into Week 12 and citing only 12-team, standard-scoring leagues.

Obviously, free-agent quarterbacks like Ryan Tannehill, Kyle Orton, Teddy Bridgewater, Josh McCown and Ryan Mallett are the likeliest candidates for most points from Sunday to Sunday.

But I would also place an equal or higher priority on landing possible dynamos at receiver, running back and tight end, especially those who are already becoming fixtures in the red zone.
