Week 13 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups


Jimmy Garoppolo

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan expects contract-year QB Jimmy Garoppolo to be franchised in 2018. C.J. Beathard suffered a knee contusion and hip strain in Week 12 and it doesn’t look to be a long-term issue. Consider this a Keeper/Dynasty League prospective play when picking up Garoppolo as this team could turn around quickly in 2018 with a potential Saquon Barkley Draft Selection and Free Agent WR addition.

Case Keenum

We don’t know how it’s even possible that people are discussing the possibility of Keenum being uprooted from the Starting QB Position, especially with Minnesota at 9-2 and winning the NFC North. That said, Keenum has a tough road ahead @ATL, @CAR, vs. CIN so be careful on this one because we advise against.

Aaron Rodgers

It’s rumored that Rodgers is set to return for Week 15. If you want to take a gamble and have the roster space, we recommend an addition now while you can. Ultimately, this may hinge on whether the Packers mathematically have a shot at the playoffs, so stay tuned.

Devontae Booker

Booker only has 1 TD on the season and hasn’t done anything spectacular on the stat-sheet, however he has been a consistent medium floor guy, gathering 8-10 looks per game. Denver takes on @MIA, vs. NYJ, @INDI and @WASH going forward.

Jacquizz Rodgers/Peyton Barber

Doug Martin left Sunday’s outing with a concussion and both Rodgers and Barber took over in his absence. Remember the time table on these situations and even look at Davonte Freeman’s scenario, missing two games. We expect this to follow suit and see a timeshare between Rodgers and Barber going forward.

Rex Burkhead

The New England backfield is impossible to predict, however at the moment Burkhead has performed as a viable asset for fantasy owners across a solid span of games receiving attention in both the rushing and receiving attack. With Burkhead’s 2 TDs on Sunday, we don’t expect the momentum to halt. Expect to see a Dion Lewis and Burkhead backfield for New England going forward.

Corey Coleman

Coleman and Duke Johnson continue to be the only viable fantasy assets on this miserable squad and the Browns should continue to fight from behind, making both solid prospects going forward. Since returning, Coleman has been peppered with looks … vs. JAX he saw 6 Receptions for 80 Yards on 11 Targets and @CINC he grabbed 3 Receptions for 64 Yards on 8 Targets. Touchdowns will be far and few between, but Coleman will still be a productive WR3 going forward.

Josh Gordon

Consider this a complete wild card and even harder to trust as this scenario takes place on a terrible Cleveland Team that has proved to be a mess both on the field and in the front office. Browns HC Hue Jackson wants Josh Gordon to play “as much as possible” in his Week 13 return.

Cooper Kupp

With Robert Woods still expected to miss a few more weeks, Kupp has continued to pick up the slack. Kupp posted his highest yardage total of the season in Week 12, totaling 8 Receptions on 11 Targets for 116 Yards. Kupp now is up to 597 Yards on the season and is currently averaging 6.5 Targets Per Game. The schedule going forward is tough, so dampen expectations for the Rookie over the next few weeks.

Dede Westbrook

Since breaking into the lineup, Westbrook is averaging 8 Targets Per Game, but hasn’t provided much of a statistical punch to go along with it. Consider the Rookie WR a speculative addition and one we don’t recommend starting at this point in the season when so much is on the line for fantasy owners.

Zay Jones

With Benjamin sidelined and Matthews dinged up, Jones is the WR1 in Buffalo. Benjamin was officially tabbed with a torn meniscus. Jones’ ceiling isn’t through the roof, however he has hit the end-zone in 2 of his last 3 games and continues to hover around that 50 Yard mark. Going forward, Buffalo will see the favorable schedule of NE, INDI, MIA and @NE (3 of 4 Home Games).

Ricky Seals-Jones

Seals-Jones carried the momentum forward in Week 12, posting consecutive strong outings and 3 TDs/126 Yards across that mark. With such a short history, it’s impossible to predict his performance going forward being that he only logged “1 Target” prior to Week 11.

San Diego Defense vs. Cleveland

This is a tricky one with Josh Gordon returning, but a noteworthy defense with a solid matchup.
