The Hive – Week 12 edition

The Hive – Week 12 edition

Welcome back to The Hive! It’s the home stretch of the fantasy season, and for many fantasy owners its win or else. One of the beautiful things about IDP leagues is the ability to find talent on the waiver wire at this time of year. In the average IDP league players like Chris Johnson, Xavier Adibi and Eric Barton are often available for those looking for a late season bump in production, or for those dealing with injuries. Patrick Kerney is the latest IDP stud to be declared out for the season, so Darryl Tapp shouldn’t be on wires in any DL required leagues as a result. Let’s take a look at all of the week 12 matchups!

How we rank `em!
