2014 Fantasy Football Rankings Week 13

Chuck Cook - USA Today Sports
Finally the bye weeks are over and we are in the final push for play-offs.  It's so important to stick with your studs as well as let this extremely hot-handed players play.  Don't get too cute about who you decide to start for QB, RB, WR, TE, but for kicker and defense make sure to work that waiver wire for the defenses with easy match-ups.  Also don't forget to work the waiver wire hard as there are many RB's and some WR's out there for the taking.

2014 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 13

Brad Barr - USA Today
The bye weeks are officially behind us and we have to win every game so we ensure we make the play-off's. There are a solid number of must-grabs at RB this week.

Double Check (just in case):

Jordan Matthews (WR, PHI) - if he is still on your waiver wire your league is asleep at the wheel; this kid has to be owned.

C.J. Anderson (RB, DEN) - he shouldn't be on waiver wires, but if he is on your wire you are required to get him.

Must Grab:

Isaiah Crowell (RB, CLE) - I told you last week to grab him and now he is producing; the thing I love about him is that he is getting the goal-line carries. He is a must grab at this point and a must start in TD leagues.

Latavius Murray (RB, OAK) - before the concussion he was giving the Raiders a real spark, which I believe carried them the rest of the game. Murray should play again next week and has real upside. He is solid grab this week and at least stash him if you don't play him.

Daniel Herron (RB, IND) - here is another solid RB available to grab this week. Herron is going to get 10 to 15 carries a game and will also catch the ball for PPR league owners.

Jarvis Landry (WR, MIA) - this kid is on my list weekly and he is proving to PPR league owners that he is very startable. Landry also gives you solid TD upside and is someone to really consider starting if you need that extra bit of upside.

Spot-Starter:

Mark Sanchez (QB, PHI) - if you are looking for a QB spot-starter then Sanchez is a nice fill-in for under-performing QBs. He is doing well in Chip Kelly's offense and finding Jordan Matthews consistently.

Kenny Stills (WR, NO) - Brandin Cooks is now going to miss the rest of the season and Kenny Stills should see a ton of action with the lose of Cooks.

Terrance West (RB, CLE) - he is splitting carries with Crowell, but is in on many of the passing plays as well giving him a bit more PPR upside. I prefer Crowell, but if you are in need of a RB then West is someone to consider.

Kyle Rudolph (TE, MIN) - slowly coming back and he will continue to draw targets from Bridgewater; expect to see three to five catches a game going forward with TD upside.

Josh McCown (QB, TB) - didn't have a great game against the Bears this week, but he will throw one to three TDs a week; if you are in need of a QB then McCown is someone who can be used as a spot-starter.

Doug Martin (RB, TB) - it's not shocking he got the start at Charles Sims hasn't exactly lit up the playing field. Martin is in a true RBBC, but he needs to show off in the back-half of this season. He will be a risky start but is someone to at the least keep an eye on.

LeGarrette Blount (RB, NE) - Jonas Gray was sat this week due to being late to practice. It's so tough to decide on how much work NE RB's will get weekly so Blount is only stashable at this point, but I don't see him being someone you want to start next week.  He could quickly rise to a starter, but at this point there is a ton of risk to starting Blount.

Robert Turbin (RB, SEA) - Marshawn Lynch owners need to keep a close eye on Turbin as Lynch is having back issues so Turbin would get a solid workload.

Watch:

Garrett Graham (TE, HOU) - there is no doubt Ryan Mallett likes to throw to Graham and he can be a spot-starter in PPR leagues with TD upside. He should average around four catches a game going forward.

Zach Mettenberger (QB, TEN) - the nice thing about fantasy football is the players that you start don't have to win the game to get you solid points. Mettenberger has been finding the end-zone, but should only be considered in two QB leagues.

Charles Johnson (WR, MIN) - Teddy Bridgewater is having no problem throwing it to Johnson, but Johnson is just too risky to start.

Donte Moncrief (WR, IND) - every week he will get more involved and he is a super talent; stash him on your bench now and let's see if the Colts give him more playing time.

Stedman Bailey (WR, StL) - was targeted a ton this week, but still too risky to consider playing.
