Fantasy Football Week 13: Waiver Wire

2 of 2

WR Kenny Stills, Saints (34%) – With rookie Brandin Cooks out for the rest of the year, Kenny Stills took over as the Saints primary WR with a career high 9 targets and 98 yards. Still got stopped a few yards short of the end zone on two different catches which could have led to a huge game. The Saints will be throwing a lot to make up for a porous defense and Stills could be one of the main beneficiaries the rest of the way.

WR Charles Johnson, Vikings (2%) – Has all the tools to be a relevant fantasy player with good size (6’2, 215), 4.35 speed and has become Teddy Bridgewater’s go-to WR with 18 targets over the last two weeks. The Vikings offense isn’t great, but the Vikings are going to be losing often and if Johnson establishes himself as the Vikings #1 WR, he’s worth a spot on your roster.

TE Tim Wright, Patriots (15%) – WIth Tom Brady and the Pats offense playing out of their minds right now, Wright’s value has skyrocketed. Wright doesn’t get a lot of targets in the passing game (4 targets per game over last 4 weeks), but has 6 TDs over the last five games.

TE Jordan Cameron, Browns (46%) – With Josh Gordon back and Andrew Hawkins establishing himself as a solid #2 WR, things could open up for Cameron if he can stay healthy the rest of the year. He had some monster games last season and with a weak TE group this year, Cameron could have value down the stretch.

RB Charles Sims, Bucs (32%) – It was a disappointment to see useless Doug Martin and his 2.8 yards per carry get 5 more carries than Sims this week, but eventually the 2-9 Bucs will have to hand things over to their rookie 3rd round pick right? I’m not counting on Lovie Smith to show common sense anytime soon, but am still stashing Sims in a couple leagues in case he gets a chance to be the primary RB in one of the Bucs late season match-ups (preferably Carolina in week 15).

RB Brandon Oliver, Chargers (42%) – With Ryan Matthews an injury risk every time he touches the ball, it makes since to grab Oliver if your league has a decent sized bench. Oliver had a couple big games in Matthews absence and if you are counting on Matthews as a starter it makes sense to handcuff him with Oliver once the playoffs roll around.

WR Justin Hunter, Titans (40%) – He is a model of inconsistency with two 10 target, 1 TD games over the last four and just 3 catches total in the other 2 games. Rookie QB Zach Mettenberger is looking more comfortable the last two weeks and has a cannon arm which could lead to some deep connections with Hunter. Just keep in mind that any time you put Hunter in the lineup there is a chance for a sub-5 point fantasy game.
