2012 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 13

Derick E. Hingle - US PRESSWIRE

There are always injuries and underperforming players that need to be replaced with waiver wire targets.

5 Star Pickups

Knowshon Moreno (RB, DEN) - honestly shocking, but he is starting and putting up numbers.  Must grab this week.

Chris Wells (RB, ARZ) - he has been on this list weekly and if happens to be on your waiver wire he is a must grab.

Denario Alexander (WR, SD) - if he is still on your wire he is a must grab and solid spot starter.

4 Star Pickups

Colin Kaepernick (QB, SF) - he is looking good and worth a pickup even as a backup QB.

Pierre Garcon (WR, WAS) - he was on the list last week due to him finally coming off his injury and he is already getting in the mix.  He is a must grab.

Greg Jennings (WR, GB) - did someone in your league drop Jennings?  He is coming back next week.

Ryan Broyles (WR, DET) - even when Titus Young returns it would surprise me to see Broyles ahead of him.  He is a must add in PPR leagues.

TY Hilton (WR, IND) - keeps making this list (hopefully you have been taking note of that)  as long as Avery is out.  He is sneaky start if Avery is out again next week.

Justin Blackmon/Cecil Shorts (WR, JAX) - Chad Henne has these guys putting up fantasy numbers. They are both spot starters at this point.

Jake Locker (QB, TEN) - if you are in dire straights then Locker offers good upside as he gets more comfortable weekly.

Jaquizz Rodgers (RB, ATL) - starting to get more and more workload. He is up and down but worth a stash at this point.

3 Star Pickups

David Wilson (RB, NYG) - with Andre Brown breaking his leg this will give Wilson additional playtime.  He is only a stash at this point.

Chris Givens (WR, StL) - had a great game this weekend but it is not clear that he is able to perform in this manner weekly. Only a stash at this point.

Julian Edelman (WR, NE) - if he is not injured too bad he is a sneaky start when needed.  He is also handling punt returns for some extra yards.  I have him stashed in a couple leagues and he can be a boom/bust pick for you if you are in need.

Rashad Jennings (RB, JAX) - if Parmele is out next week then Jennings is a stretch to start but none the less will get the entire workload.

Chad Henne (QB, JAX) - he is going to do well enough but don't go to crazy here. I need to see one more week of production.

Questions: Facebook or Twitter


  1. In a 12 Player Flex PPR is it worth cutting D. Bowe for Garcon or Ryan Broyles?

  2. Bowe hasn't scored double digits since week four and has had two good weeks all year. Pretty much anybody with a pulse is a better option at this point.
