With usual fantasy starters A.J. Green of the Bengals, Devin Funchess of the Panthers, and Marquise Goodwin of the 49ers all inactive in Week 12, their owners are likely looking for a last-minute replacement at wide receiver.


In case you're one of those people, here are three possible replacements that can be had off the waiver wire.

Antonio Callaway is a product of a great matchup here. He and the Browns go up against the Cincinnati Bengals, who give up the sixth most fantasy points to wide receivers so far this season. Callaway is the Browns' down-field threat, so in a game with this weak of a secondary, the speedy wideout could very well break out for a huge play or two and make starting him worthwhile as a WR3 or FLEX.

Despite seemingly being overtaken as the No. 1 wide receiver by D.J. Moore, Devin Funchess was still ahead of Curtis Samuel on the depth chart. But with Funchess out, Samuel becomes the legitimate No. 2 receiving threat for the Panthers With touchdowns in two of the last three games, Samuel could be in line to continue that streak along with a larger target share.

Willie Snead has been a target monster for the Ravens this season, with 77 in total and only three games with less than five catches. Snead is a great last-minute add just based on opportunity alone. Although QB Lamar Jackson ran the ball 26 times in his first game as a starter, he still completed five passes to Snead, a number that could rise with Jackson becoming more comfortable throwing the ball in his second start of his young career.
