Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 13

For most fantasy football enthusiasts Week 13 marks the end of the regular season. In some instances you won’t be able to make any substantial changes to your roster beyond this waiver wire period. Things are bare on the wire this week but depending your indivdual situation it may behoove you to place a claim.

These are players that are owned in less than 50% of Yahoo leagues.

Add these Quarterbacks via Waiver Wire

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins

Fitz is back at the controls and he has a favorable matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on tap. The turnovers aren’t going to magically disappear but the Dolphins offense is much more explosive with the veteran signal-caller under center. If your current starter is struggling with injury, inconsistency or COVID-19 add Fitzpatrick as an insurance policy. Fitz has a couple decent playoff matchups as well.

Waiver Wire

Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

I’m always leery of starting Kirk Cousins because of his unpredictable, streakiness. However, he’s currently in the midst of a heater having completed more than 73% of his passes in his last two contests. During this two game span, Cousins has eclipsed 300 yards passing and tossed three touchdowns; over the last four games Cousins has an 11:1 TD/INT ratio. The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t exactly a stalwart defensively. So if, and I can’t stress IF enough… If you’re hurting for a spot start in Week 13 consider Kirk Cousins.

Add these Running Backs

Alexander Mattison, Minneapolis Vikings

Headley mentioned last week that targeting a number of running back handcuffs was a prudent move ahead of Week 12. We got a substantial scare when Dalvin Cook had to be helped off the field last week. Fortunately, he was able to return to the game after having suffered a twisted ankle. But this incident should serve as a reminder that your fantasy football fortunes can change at any given time. If Alexander Mattison is available put in a claim whether Cook is on your roster or not.

Boston Scott, Philadelphia Eagles

Once again, Headley warned us all. Though it doesn’t appear Miles Sanders suffered an injury during Week 12 he was out-touched, out-snapped by Boston Scott. I believe a pair of inexcusable drops led to Sanders’ reduced usage this past Monday night but let’s not forget Sanders has missed roughly a month of the 2020 season due to injury. If you’re a Sanders owner or could stand to increase your RB depth for the playoff run do yourself a favor and add Boston Scott.

Add these Wide Receivers via Waiver Wire

Waiver Wire

T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

I’m not making a big fuss regarding Hilton catching his first touchdown of the season in Week 12. That alone wouldn’t be enough to encourage me to roster the Colts’ wideout. However, Hilton has two matchups over the next three weeks against the Houston Texans, a team he has tormented over eight seasons. Hilton’s 139/85/1537/10 are ALL career highs against a given opponent. It’s a roll of the dice considering the apparent lack of chemistry between Philip Rivers and T.Y. Hilton; but stranger things have happened.

Hunter Renfrow, Las Vegas Raiders

Fresh off of a nine target game and question marks heading into Week 13 regarding the availability of Nelson Agholor, I believe Hunter Renfrow is an astute addition to your fantasy football team. Push come to shove, Renfrow is a WR3/FLEX play if Agholor misses time. I expect the Las Vegas Raiders to bounce back in a big way after completely pooping the bed in Atlanta last week. Renfrow could be a main beneficiary and boon towards your fantasy football success short term.

Add these Tight Ends

Jimmy Graham, Chicago Bears

What a year for the tight end position! And by that I mean, it’s been awful. Still under 50% ownership, Graham is as good an option as any at what has become a touchdown dependent position outside of Travis Kelce.
