Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: DT - Week 12
If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.
Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

The following players will have greater significance in deep fantasy football leagues. In shallow fantasy football leagues, they are not as high of a priority but should be considered based on your fantasy football team's needs.
San Francisco 49ers (45 percent)
Despite being tattooed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, the Niners, have registered 3.00 sacks per game since Week 8. San Fran faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 13 and the San Diego Chargers in Week 15, but they line up the Arizona Cardinals this week, who've allowed 3.50 sacks, 1.25 interceptions and 0.50 fumble recoveries per game since Week 7; their Week 14 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks (2.50, 1.00 and 0.75, respectively) is also enticing.
Cleveland Browns (79 percent)
The Browns have given up 21.3 points per game in their last three games but have also averaged 2.33 sacks, 2.00 interceptions and 1.33 fumble recoveries per game in those outings, which came against the New England Patriots, New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars.
In the next two weeks? Cleveland has a dream schedule for fantasy teams in the playoff hunt. The Browns face the QB-weak Carolina Panthers and the Tyler Thigpen-led Miami Dolphins. In Week 14, they face the Buffalo Bills; though Buffalo's offense is much improved, they took advantage of an unimpressive Cincinnati Bengals last week, and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown two picks in two of his last three games.
