Early Fantasy Football pickups for Week 12: Three players to add

One of the year’s best stories ended in cruel fashion on Sunday as Chris Thompson suffered a season-ending injury. However, a rookie stepped in for Thompson and shined for Washington. Elsewhere, a pair of receivers had strong showings in Week 11 and are worthy of fantasy attention down the stretch. Here are three players to consider adding for Week 12:

Samaje Perine, RB, Washington – 31 percent owned

With Rob Kelley on the IR and Thompson going down with a broken fibula, Perine will man Washington’s backfield. Working as the team’s RB1 in Week 11, the rookie managed 117 rushing yards and a score on 23 totes. He’s a must-add player in any league.

Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – 37 percent

Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker may have out-targeted Stills in Week 11, but the former Saint was the team’s most productive offensive weapon… by a long shot. Converting 7 of 8 targets for 180 yards and  ascore, Stills continued to produce for Miami. Heading into  Sunday’s tilt vs. the Bucs, he had managed at least 65 yards in three of his previous four outings. He’ll draw the Patriots’ beatable secondary in two of his next three contests.

Corey Coleman, WR, Cleveland Browns – 31 percent

After a seven-game absence, Coleman showed up in Week 11. Toasting Jalen Ramsey more than once, Coleman proved why he was a first-round pick. Leading the Browns in targets with 11 looks, the second-year player caught 6 balls for 80 yards. He’s undoubtedly an ascending talent.
