With just Monday Night Football still to happen, now is that glorious time of the week when we turn our attention to Week 13 and attack the fantasy football waiver wire.
Before we jump into who you should be targeting this week, I quickly would kindly request that MetLife field get their field redone. Please and thank you. That’s all I have to say on the matter.
To be as helpful as possible to you dear readers, I’ve ranked my top 5 players at each position, ranging from a little over 50% rostered in Sleeper leagues to well under the 30% mark. No matter your league size, there’s someone in here for you.
1. Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns (59% rostered)
2. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars (56%): Lawrence has now had back-to-back games with at least 259 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. He’s been a top-10 fantasy QB since Week 6.
3. Mike White, New York Jets (8%): White started in place of the benched Zach Wilson and threw for 315 yards and 3 touchdowns. I don’t see the Jets going back to Wilson anytime soon. Jets play Vikings, Lions, and Jaguars in their next four games.
4. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions (46%)
5. Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers (0%): Love filled in for an injured Aaron Rodgers Sunday night and averaged 12.5 yards per attempt, tossing 113 yards and a touchdown on 9 attempts.
1. Zonovan Knight, Jets (0%): Another injury, Michael Carter left with a sprained ankle and undrafted rookie Knight led the backfield in carries. With James Robinson inactive, Knight left the Jets backfield in snaps and was the main back in both early and short yardage downs. Ty Johnson (2% rostered) has third down work locked down, playing 90% of those snaps.
2. Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams (44%): Williams logged 70% of the Rams backfield snaps and was the lead back in LA. He finished SUnday with 60 total yards on 14 touches.
3. JaMycal Hasty, Jaguars (3%): Travis Etienne left Sunday early with an injury. Hasty finished with 12 carries for 28 yards and 5 catches on 5 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown. He was the clear RB1, playing over 75% of snaps. Darrell Henderson is worth adding as well if Etienne is out for a long period of time.
4. Tyler Allgeier, Atlanta Falcons (52%)
5. Jordan Mason, San Francisco 49ers (0%): Elijah Mitchell and Christian McCaffrey are both banged up to varying degrees. You have to roster some running back in SF.
1. Zay Jones, Jaguars (37%): Jones has seen 10-plus targets in back-to-back weeks. Against the Ravens he saw 14 targets, catching 11 for 145 yards. Jaguars have one of the easiest passing schedules over the next four weeks.
2. Van Jefferson, Rams (38%): Who knows who’ll play QB for the Rams rest of the year, but someone has to catch passes for them. With Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson both injured—ARob is done for the year—Jefferson is next up to lead the WR room. He led the team with 7 targets Sunday, catching 3 for 29 yards and a score.
3. Elijah Moore/Corey Davis, Jets (29%/19%): Moore made the most of his 2 targets, catching both for 64 yards and a score. Davis came back from injury and played over 50% of snaps and ran the second-most routes on the team.
4. Mack Hollins, Las Vegas Raiders (31%)
5. Jameson Williams, Lions (53%)
1. Foster Moreau, Raiders (45%): Moreau saw 7 targets, catching 3 for 33 yards and a score vs the Seahawks. He’s been the TE7 in .5PPR over the last three weeks.
2. Jordan Akins, Houston Texans (0%): Akins has had either a touchdown or 70-plus yards receiving in two of his last three games.
3. Hunter Henry, New England Patriots (29%)
4. Tyler Conklin, Jets (18%)
5. Evan Engram, Jaguars (45%)
