James Washington (WR, PIT) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: JuJu Smith-Schuster is hurt. Diontae Johnson is hurt. Both players have their status for Week 12's meeting with the Bengals up in the air, which is a good reason to take a look at Washington.

His numbers don't jump off the page -- three catches for 49 yards against the Browns -- but he did just play 85 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps and he's got familiarity with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph since they were college teammates at Oklahoma State.

If Washington goes into Week 12 with the team's no. 1 receiver job, watch out. Cincinnati's defense has been getting worse over the past few games at defending opposing wide receivers, and while they blanked Washington in Week 4, Johnson had a huge game. Rudolph should be able to throw the ball around the field this week, and Washington will be the biggest beneficiary of that. He's got flex appeal in 12-team leagues.
