2015 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 13

Kelley Cox - USA Today Sports
Week 13 is coming up and some of you will be in play-offs while others will be fighting for play-off spots. The key to winning the play-offs and to getting into the play-offs is going to be working the waiver wire like a pro for solid QB, RB, WR, and TE pick-ups.

Must Grab:

Spencer Ware (RB, KC) - one would think Charcandrick West will return next week, but since Ware looked so solid they may not rush him back and allow Ware to go as starter for another week.

Thomas Rawls (RB, SEA) - if he is still available for some crazy reason, then PLEASE GET HIM. He just looks so solid in all formats.

Buck Allen (RB, BAL) - he is playing tonight, but there is no doubt he will get the lion share of the work. He should be added in all leagues and used as needed.

David Johnson (RB, ARZ) - if both Ellington and Chris Johnson miss time then David will be a solid spot-starter and he knows how to find the end-zone. Keep an eye on the injury report this week.

Stevie Johnson (WR, SD) - he should not be on your waiver wire as he has been on my list weekly, but if you are in a PPR league then don't ignore him any longer.

Spot-Starters:

Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, NYJ) - there are a number of leagues where Fitzpatrick is available and he should only be considered if you are in real need of a QB, but he is capable of putting up usable fantasy numbers and does have the offense around him to make him count.

CJ Anderson (RB, DEN) - he is not expected to be on your waiver wire, but if he happens to be sitting out there he could have a nice end of season production. He is a nice stash on the bench at the very least.

Kamar Aiken (WR, BAL) - we will see how he does with Matt Schaub, but it's likely he will be targeted often and be able to be a spot-starter for your team.

Jay Ajayi (RB, MIA) - Maimi may let Ajayi get additional work down the stretch; he can be considered in TD only leagues that are deep, but for now he is a stash on the bench.

Brock Osweiler (QB, DEN) - he looked fairly sharp last night but still working on chemistry with his WR's. He is a wild card start, but he will get his chances to take shots downfield in this offense.

Scott Chandler (TE, NE) - keep an eye on Gronkowski's injury, but if he is out for a while then Chandler will get to step in to make plays. He is better in a PPR league, but does present TD upside if you need a replacement for an injury.

Shaun Draughn (RB, SF) - Draughn doesn't look bad at all and he would be one of those lower tier RB's that if you need in a pinch could be a spot-starter for you.

Antonio Andrews (RB, TEN) - he had a rough weekend, but is still the starter with David Cobb running behind him. If you have to start him then we know you are in a rough spot, but he is a starting RB.

Ameer Abdullah (RB, DET) - it appears Detroit is going back and giving Abdullah more work to keep his experience increasing. He still has the risk of not being used so only if you are really hurting for a RB do you consider Abdullah.

Vance McDonald (TE, SF) - with the injury to Celek McDonald was given most of the work; he is a huge gamble if you choose to start him next week, but he is a deep sleeper.

Devin Funchess (WR, CAR) - the Panthers are playing the Saints next week and Funchess could really explode; you have to love his upside next week and is a top sleeper for Week 13.

Crockett Gillmore (TE, BAL) - again, we need to see how he works with Schaub, but my guess is that they will work together just fine in an offense that will need to throw the ball. He will have PPR and TD upside and can serve as a spot-starter.

Kyle Rudolph (TE, MIN) - this is a former Pro Bowl TE and Bridgewater is getting more comfortable with him; he is a PPR machine and a fine spot-starter to fill in for any injured TE. 

Marquess Wilson (WR, CHI) - this kid is talented for sure and even with Alshon back in the line-up he will draw targets.

Theo Riddick (RB, DET) - PPR league owners may want to take a look at Riddick and he does have TD upside. He is not a favorite but worth watching.

Watch:

Matt Hasselbeck (QB, IND) - he is filling in rather well for Andrew Luck with a win over the Tampa Bay Bucs. He is still not going to be consistent enough but if you are in a two QB league and really need a QB then Hasselbeck may be someone to consider.

Brandon Bolden (RB, NE) - this is a super deep play for only PPR leagues, but he has been able to give a long TD pass-catch in a number of games.

Doug Baldwin (WR, SEA) - it's hard to ignore his performance this weekend, but he is a toss the coin type WR and he could easily give you a bad week. But if you need to gamble then Baldwin could take a roll of the dice.

DeVante Parker (WR, MIA) - just like Ajayi he may see more usage for the rest of the season; again he is just a stash or watch until we see how much use he gets.

Brian Hoyer (QB, HOU) - we were hoping for even more against the Saints terrible pass defense, but he still can throw TDs. He is a QB to only consider in two QB leagues or super deep leagues.

Matt Cassel (QB, DAL) - with Tony Romo gone for the rest of the year Cassel will get another chance; he is just not that sharp, but if you are in a super deep two QB league then maybe you go that way, but not fired up about it.

Dontrelle Inman (WR, SD) - with the number of injuries in San Diego it has left Inman as a starter and he is producing some catches. He is not reliable enough to count on but someone to watch.

Rashad Greene or Bryan Walters (WR, JAX) - if Allen Hurns misses time due to injury then Greene or Walters will step in to pick-up some catches. It's a gamble on who will step up but both players should be watched.
