Fantasy Football Week 13: Add and Drop

Eddie Brown, The San Diego Union-Tribune on

Published in Football

Each week I'll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define "widely available" as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster.

Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week.

Here's my NFL Week 13 waiver wire cheat sheet for all league sizes and formats, with players you need to add, drop and stream in your fantasy football league:


WR Donovan Peoples-Jones, Browns (ESPN: 42%; Yahoo: 50%): Peoples-Jones has actually been a flex-worthy option since Week 4 — he's the overall WR33 in standard formats (WR31 in PPR) over that span. He had at least four receptions and 50 yards in seven straight games before Week 12 — five of those games he had at least 71 yards. Deshaun Watson's (ESPN: 43%; Yahoo: 59%) favorite receiver during his time in Houston was Will Fuller, who shares a skill-set with Peoples-Jones.

RB Gus Edwards, Ravens (ESPN: 41%; Yahoo: 56%): Edwards has finished as the overall RB6, RB35 and RB31 in standard formats the three games he has been active this season. Baltimore has one of the easiest schedules for running backs in fantasy the rest of this season.


QB Mike White, Jets (ESPN: 3%; Yahoo: 5%): New York's upcoming schedule is very quarterback friendly and White looked light years ahead of Zach Wilson in his first start of the season.

WR Jameson Williams, Lions (ESPN: 21%; Yahoo: 39%): Williams could be added to the active roster this week. I don't anticipate the dynamic first-round draft pick will get a high volume of targets right away, but he doesn't need that to be fantasy relevant.

TE Foster Moreau, Raiders (ESPN: 36%; Yahoo: 39%): Moreau is the overall TE8 across all formats since Week 8. With the tight end position as unpredictable as ever in fantasy, he has been one of the few consistent options of late. In fact, the entire Vegas passing game has been streamlined since Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow were placed on injured reserve. Mack Hollins (ESPN: 13%; Yahoo: 21%) is averaging almost seven targets per game since Week 10.

BONUS: WR Treylon Burks, Titans (ESPN: 38%; Yahoo: 51%): Since returning from a foot injury in Week 10, Burks is the overall WR35 in standard formats (WR30 in PPR) and has had at least six targets in every game. The more he plays — he played almost 70 percent of the snaps in Week 12 — the more productive he will be. Consider him a WR3/flex option with upside going forward.
