Week 12 is in the books and fantasy players are combing the waiver wire looking for injury and bye week replacements. We bring you the list of top 5 players who could be waiver wire duds.

WR Julian Edelman, New England Patriots (40% owned)

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, and running back Brandon Bolden below, make this list because their production is too inconsistent to trust right now. On Sunday Night Football, Edelman was targeted eleven times and caught nine passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns. The last time he had that many targets? Week 6. The last time he had that kind of production? Week 4. You do the math.

RB Brandon Bolden, New England Patriots (6% owned)

Patriots running back Brandon Bolden should send his game check to Stevan Ridley, who can't stop fumbling the ball. With the return of Shane Vereen, Bolden was a healthy scratch in Week 11 after dealing with a variety of injuries early on. First Stevan Ridley and then LeGarrette Blount fumbled in the first quarter and Bolden got the bulk of the carries from that point on. The Patriots have publicly expressed confidence in Ridley since then so stay tuned. In any event, Bolden isn't likely to help you make a playoff push.

RB Dennis Johnson, Houston Texans (12% owned)

Your daily reminder the Houston Texans are a hot mess. Running back Ben Tate got the start Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, as expected, and proceeded to rush for 1 yard on seven carries. Dennis Johnson took over and rushed for 74 yards on 13 carries. He added 2 catches for 13 yards. Following the game, head coach Gary Kubiak said Tate would continue to be the starter and workhorse. It's hard to trust any Texans skill player right now to help you in playoff crunch time.

WR Jacoby Jones, Baltimore Ravens (12% owned)

Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones  had his breakout game of the year Sunday against the New York Jets and their terrible secondary. In Week 12 to boot. Which tells you everything you need to know about the Ravens passing game this year and Jones status and fantasy option. On a side note, the Ravens ran the wildcat Sunday and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw a hissy fit. No wonder Ray Rice sucks this year in fantasy football. The Ravens offense rivals Houston's for hot mess right now.

TE Fred Davis, Washington Redskins (26% owned)

There were fantasy players who rushed to the waiver wire to pick up Washington tight end Fred Davis after it was announced Jordan Reed would be inactive due to concussion. Davis wouldn't see a target in the Monday Night loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Davis had been inactive since Week 6 and it would have taken a push that didn't happen for him to integrate himself again in their offensive gameplan. There are also reports of Davis showing dissatisfaction with his role right now in Washington. I think it's pretty safe to say this ship has sailed.
