Huddle up, RotoBallers, because it's time for this week's first look toward the fantasy football waiver wire following Sunday's games. There are zero teams on bye this week, but we have three Thursday games for Thanksgiving. Load up your plate as we hit the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 12.

We're here as a rapid reaction to put names on your radar with the week's performances and injuries to Kenneth Walker III, Aaron Jones, De'Von Achane, Cooper Kupp, and more. This column is published early every week and then updated daily. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.

Waiver pickups are listed in priority order (in a vacuum) and broken down by position. Players must be rostered in roughly less than 60% of Yahoo leagues and will range from shallow options in standard leagues to deep options in PPR formats.
