Week 13 Waiver Wire
This week is an ugly week for waiver picks and if you really need anyone on this weeks list you must be pretty desperate.
I mentioned him last week as a desperation play and he holds the same value this week. Only in a 2 QB league would I add Allen.
Another guy I mentioned last week and another desperation play. Driskel may be the best quarterback available on waivers for you. His running ability is what makes him a decent enough player to own. No he is no Lamar Jackson.
While he is but a handcuff to Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy with both of them being banged up Darrel Williams could be your ticket to the Fantasy Playoffs. In the game before the bye Damien Williams (ribs) was knocked out of Kansas City’s victory. Running back LeSean McCoy was evaluated for a concussion in the fourth quarter and did not return, as well. No news has come out on their injuries but if either is going to miss this week than Darrel is a must own and must start player.
Hines is Indy’s pass-catching specialist and while he won’t put up a lot of yards on the grounds could easily see a few more looks every week and is a safe pick-up. If he wasn’t picked up last week you can still plug and play him if you are in a pinch.
While Jonathon Williams has looked good and may have locked in the current top RB spot in Indy you need to remember that Wilins held the #2 spot in Indy all season and should Williams start to look like the JAG that he probably is talent wise than Wilkins could get start getting some carries. As I mentioned last week it would be a snarky move to pick him up.
Benny Snell handled most of the load this week for Pittsburgh. If James Conner comes back to the lineup than it is a wasted pick, but on the off chance Conner misses more time than Snell is a fine plug and play flex option. He is a must own handcuff if you own Conner.
Baltimore was all over the Texans and ran all over the place. Gus Edwards may not be owned in all leagues and while he trailed in carries to Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram he outpaced them in yardage thanks to a 63 yard scamper and had 112 yards and a TD. He is good bench depth for sure.
This call is simply based on the fact that Erickson is one of the last man standing calls for Cincinnati. The past couple of weeks he has been simply. Still he probably won’t be more than a WR3 but if you are desperate there are worse gambles.
I consider Patrick somewhat of a long shot for week 13 was in his first gave after returning from IR he did okay although in Week 12 none of the Broncos did anything to speak of so I think he might still have a good week in week 13 with a better match up against the Chargers.
In Week 12, Beasley caught an impressive six receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown on nine targets. Beasley is more attractive in PPR than in standard leagues, however, because much of his floor comes from receptions, not yardage. He’s caught at least four passes in all but four of his games, but he hasn’t topped 90 yards in any of them. While he doesn’t have many attractive matchups left, his excellent game this week came against a strong Denver defense. He’s a WR3/flex in PPR leagues.
While the Jets had hopes for Chris Herndon it looks Griffin has cemented down the TE position for the near future. His touches were down in Week 12 but he salvaged the day with a TD and still holds streamer value.
Njoku was not activated for week 12 but I believe he will be for week 13 and if that happens he can be considered a TE1 candidate.
