Waiver Wire Week 13

Running Backs

Rashaad Penny-28.6%- Penny took full advantage of the opportunities provided in week 12 rushing for 129 yards and a TD on 14 attempts. This is the performance the Seahawks have been waiting for and prompted Pete Carroll to hint at a more involved role for Penny moving forward. A solid playoff schedule adds to the appeal of Penny moving forward.

Benny Snell-3.5%- Snell led the Steelers backfield in week 12 rushing for nearly 100 yards on 21 attempts. With James Conner trending toward sitting in week 13 Snell should have the opportunity to produce once again.

Qadree Ollison-.3%- Ollison has become more involved with Brian Hill lacking production on the field. Ollison scored last week on 8 attempts and should continue to see more opportunities with his production on the field and injuries opening up opportunities.

Jonathan Williams-29.1%- Williams was used heavily in last week’s matchup against the Texans. Williams rushed for 104 yards and a TD while also hauling in 3 balls for 17 yards. Williams will likely be involved again with Mack slated to miss the game. Expectations should be lower as the Colts should look to get the passing game going this week and Jordan Wilkins likely to get more run being another week removed from injury.

Jack Doyle and Rashaad Penny make the Waiver Wire in Week 13!

Wide Receivers

Robby Anderson-45.1%- Anderson was abe to join in on the Jets offenses current hot streak. Anderson caught 4 passes for 86 yards and a TD leading the team in week 12. With two weeks in a row with a TD and a matchup against the Bengals this week Anderson could be a sneaky upside option this week.

AJ Brown-15.4%- Brown coming out of the bye led the receiving corps with 4 catches for 135 yards and a TD. Brown has been up and down this season but has had success with Tannehill at QB. Brown also has a favorable schedule moving into the playoffs and can be considered in the flex spot over the next few weeks.

Taylor Gabriel-10.3%- Gabriel has been targeted two weeks in a row. With Trubiskey at quarterback you have to ask yourself, Do I trust the number 2 receiver in his offense? If you answer yes he is a must add. If you answer no but need a receiver down the stretch he is one of only a few receivers worth adding for week 13.

Russell Gage-4%- We have seen this offense bring 3 wide receivers into relevance as recently as early this season. If Gage can take on the role Sanu had he can be a solid add at the end of the season.

Allen Hurns-.5%- Hurns has a nice schedule the rest of the season and has put up fantasy points the past few weeks. With Miami giving him a contract extension we believe he will continue to get work in the offense.

Honorable Mentions: Devante Parker-62.8%

Quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill-15.3%- Tannehill turned in his best performance of the season Sunday finishing as the QB3 on the week. Tannehill has been consistent since taking over the starting job and with a favorable schedule moving forward that trend should continue. For a team struggling to find QB consistency Tannehill could be just what the doctor ordered for the fantasy playoffs. 

Ryan Fitzpatrick-5.1%- Fitmagic has a SWEET schedule to finish out the year. He may throw some interceptions but he will sling many touchdowns against weak defenses. If you have streamed quarterbacks this year, Fitzpatrick if a great streamable option the rest of the season.

Honorable Mentions: Baker Mayfield-62.3%

Tight Ends

Jack Doyle-43.8%- Doyle is on this list because of the unfortunate news that Eric Ebron will be hitting IR and is done for the season. This should allow Doyle to receive a couple of more targets a game and help his already steady floor.

David Njoku-19.8%- Njoku’s status for week 13 is still up in the air but moving forward Njoku could be an upside option for the playoffs after missing a significant amount of the season. Even if Njoku does not play he is worth a speculative add.

Mike Gesicki-9.1%- Gesicki found his way into the endzone for the first time this season and has now received 6 or more targets in 5 straight weeks. The volume of targets for a TE is very intriguing and make Gesicki a possible streaming option for the playoffs if injuries strike.
