Fantasy Football waiver wire The best options to search for reinforcements in the virtual grid
Cagainst much of the United States, in the week 12 there was no ‘vacation’ in the NFL. After two months of rest weeks, on Thanksgiving day all 32 teams played, but for week 13 two last teams do not play and leave holes in the Fantasy for a key day.
Tampa Bay and Carolina have their week of bye, so Mike Evans, Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Ronald Jones, Christian McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel, DJ Moore and the Bucs defense will be out for which in many leagues it is the first week of the Playoffs … or the last week of the regular season.
Losing is forbidden, so you have to fill gaps or look for improvements, so we look for the best in each position in the waiver and, as always, looking for them to be available in at least 50% of the leagues of NFL.com
Benny Snell (RB PIT, 19.9%). James Conner has coronavirus, so we have the Steelers’ predictable backfield: McFarland or Samuels for passing plays, Snell for running and in the red zone.
Gus Edwards (RB BAL, 26.9%). The only corridor that does not have coronavirus in Baltimore. He doesn’t contribute by pass, but he was his running back in the red zone, which gives scoring potential.
Wayne Gallman (RB NYG, 57.9%). As of Week 7, only Antonio Gibson has more rushing touchdowns than Gallman’s 6, who has five straight games with at least 13 points.
Alexander Mattison (RB MIN, 14.6%). Dalvin Cook sprained his ankle against Carolina, and although he returned, those injuries can get worse as the days go by. If you have Cook, yes or yes take Mattison.
Jordan Wilkins (RB IND, 3.2%). Jonathan Taylor’s removal by Covid opens more plays for Hines and Wilkins. Going down against TennesseeHines spent more time on the field (48 vs 26), but it was a game that they were losing by two touchdowns early. Against Houston, who could go ahead … Wilkins could be a Flex option.
Deebo Samuel (WR SF, 41.6%). He returned the receiver and Kyle gave him the ball more than ever in his career, en route to 11 receptions (some in jet sweep) for 133 yards. against the Rams.
Michael Pittman (WR IND, 23.3%). TY Hilton finally had a decent match, but Pittman was the receiver who was on the field the most plays (64 vs. 54), the one who saw the most passes (9, almost double TY’s 5), but only 28 yards. Still, Rivers trusts him.
Patrick’s Team (WR DEN, 7.8%). We can’t blame anything on the Broncos offense when a practice team receiver is the starting QB. Drew Lock should be back (or someone) and Patrick is his favorite receiver. Of course, watch out for the weather, if it’s bad … Lock sucks.
Taysom Hill (QB NO, 47.6%). The Saints’ running back has still not thrown a touchdown pass since November 2016 with BYU, but his potential to score a TD on the ground gives a high production floor, and He threw a respectable 233 passing yards to Atlanta en route to 24.22 points.
Baker Mayfield (QB CLE, 14.3%). In his first game without apocalyptic weather in a month, finished with 18.42 points. Now they travel to Tennessee, a team that is the fifth worst defense against QBs in Fantasy.
Kirk Cousins (QB MIN, 21.7%). The Vikings host Jacksonville, the third-worst defense against the QBs. Here the issue is that if they take advantage, in one of those he does not throw 20 times, limiting his score. Still, the last two weeks he has surpassed 22 points.
Robert Tonyan (TE GB, 64%). It breaks the half-league-available rule, but if the NFL’s sixth-best TE is available … TAKE IT.
Trey Burton (TE IND, 0.9%). It depends on scoring TDs, but he’s done it the last two weeks and the offense that passes the WR the least is the Colts.
One of my favorite strategies, looking to attack the worst teams in the league. Every year passes: if you choose a defense that that week goes against the worst teams in the league, you have a Top 5 defense at the end of the year.
The Jets are are exploitable every week. Also they Cowboys DiNucci, Gilbert and even Dalton, as well as the Jaguars as long as they don’t have Minshew. Now the Bengals join after the Joe Burrow injury. The 49ers They can also be, although they recover injured players, and the Broncos y Ravens if they continue with so many on the Covid list. Many better options than trying to make your defense survive Mahomes …
Vikings (33.6%) . Jaguars weekly lottery pick
Raiders (4.0%). They had a bad time in Atlanta, but now they go to the Jets and have to change the chip quickly because the playoff train is missing.
Chargers (46.4%) they are going against the Patriots, who are not going to score you 40 points and are having an alarming number of deliveries. With Joey Bosa back, there’s a catch option.
Chicago Bears (40.2%) They looked very bad Sunday night against Green Bay, but it partly affects injuries, especially Hicks’. Now they go against the Lions at home, with the issue of the weather and perhaps a deflated team when they know they are out of the fight … with the exception that they may be motivated by the dismissal of Patricia.
