We've reached Week 12. The playoffs are getting close and Thursday includes a day filled with food, friends, and football. A great way to kick off this wonderful holiday week is by boosting your roster via the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 12.

Here are the top fantasy-relevant, low-rostered Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 12 free agents to target with FAAB recommendations.

Week 12 byes: NONE

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget 

Latavius Murray (RB) Denver Broncos (33% FAAB) - What has been a difficult Denver backfield to decode just got much clearer. The struggling Broncos waived Melvin Gordon and Chase Edmonds could miss the rest of the fantasy season. That makes Murray, who just got 21 touches, Denver's workhorse moving forward. Although the Denver offense leaves a lot to be desired, Murray has looked solid while sharing time. Also, according to FullTime's Strength of Schedule Tool, the Broncos have a top-10 easiest remaining schedule for running backs.

Samaje Perine (RB) Cincinnati Bengals (20% FAAB) - Placing a strong bid on Perine is a risk/reward venture. First, he's been productive when given opportunities, especially in Week 11. Secondly, Joe Mixon exited Sunday's game and is in concussion protocol. However, if Mixon is cleared to return this week, Perine would defer back to his usual 5-7 touch role. But, if Mixon remains out, Perine offers solid weekly RB2 value, Thus, until word drops, Perine is worth a healthy bid to acquire.
