Waiver Wire Targets: Week 13

Does your fantasy football team need a boost heading into week week 13? Here’s who you should pick up on the waiver wire.

The fantasy football playoffs are upon us. For some of us, that starts this week, and for the others, it begins next week. Now is the time to finalize your roster for these last few games, especially if you are in the hunt for the championship. Luckily, there’s no more worrying about bye weeks. Just make sure you don’t forget about the trio of games on Thanksgiving. Make sure to check those lineups early and often down the home stretch, and good luck to all!

Ryan Tannehill (TEN): What a surprise for the Titans after benching Marcus Mariota. Looking for a quarterback who has been consistent? Don’t look any further than Tannehill. The biggest factor that should steer you in his direction is the remaining games on the Titans’ schedule down the stretch. So, if he is still on the waiver wire go and grab him.

Other Options: Sam Darnold, Daniel Jones, and Nick Foles

Running Back

Benny Snell Jr. (PIT): The Steelers have injuries all over the field. The running back position has been the biggest issue for them all season from an injury standpoint. As of last week, it finally looks like they are giving their rookie more of a chance. Snell Jr. got over 20 carries, which bodes well for him going forward, especially if James Conner is out again.

Other Options: Jonathan Williams, Rashaad Penny, and Bo Scarbrough

Wide Receiver

Cole Beasley (BUF): Outside of John Brown, Beasley has become a very reliable target for Josh Allen to go to in key situations. His targets seem to be at a good number, which is even better for PPR formats. Some games during the playoffs might seem rough, but they will actually be more in his favor over the Bills number one wide receiver.

Other Options: Darius Slayton, James Washington, and Randall Cobb

Tight End

Jack Doyle (IND): It finally looks like it is Doyle’s time to shine now. The Colts lost Eric Ebron to the IR due to an ankle injury that has been an issue for him all season. This team is still battling for the playoffs themselves, so they will need to depend on a guy like Doyle for the last few games. A few of the remaining games should project as good matchups for him. Make sure you try to find a spot on your roster for him, especially since tight ends are always a tricky position group.

Other Options: Ryan Griffin, David Njoku, and Mike Gesicki
