NFL Fantasy Football Week 13 Sleepers

NFL FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 13 SLEEPERS – A player gets injured, or someone breaks out and earns more opportunities. These players can make or break your fantasy season. No one can predict the future, so drafting a perfect team is out of the question.

Depth never hurts, so it is best to evaluate your roster weekly. This article is a great place to look and will feature the best waiver wire additions each week. (Rostered Percentages from ESPN)

Quarterback

Kenny Pickett – 15.7% Rostered

The Steelers’ offense looked significantly better without Matt Canada calling the plays.

Pickett did not throw for a touchdown, but he did not throw an interception and finished with 278 passing yards. He now faces the Cardinals, who allow 26.8 points and 377.9 total yards per game.

Pickett should be in play as a streaming option this week and could hold value in DFS formats. If there was ever a time to take a shot on Pickett for fantasy, it is this week.

Gardner Minshew II – 7.3% Rostered

Minshew is the next guy I would turn to if Pickett does not inspire much confidence. Minshew has been serviceable since replacing Anthony Richardson and has faced good defenses.

He plays the Titans this week, who are awful against the pass. They give up 7.7 yards per pass attempt, have allowed 12 passing TDs, and have only three interceptions. Minshew is a streamable option at quarterback this week.

Running Back

Jeff Wilson Jr. – 27.1% Rostered

There are few viable options for running back at this point in the season.

Most of them are like Jeff Wilson, who gets some touches but could vault into a starting role with an injury. Zack Moss is another player in a similar position but owned in almost 59% of leagues.

Wilson finished with 11 carries for 56 yards and three receptions for 17 yards. He can provide value in deeper leagues and is a valuable handcuff. Zack Moss, Rico Dowdle, and Tyjae Spears fall into the handcuff category. Wilson is my favorite based on the current volume, but all could be league winners if an injury occurs.

Wide Receiver

Jayden Reed – 31.6% Rostered

I talked about Jayden Reed last week and delivered for the third consecutive week. His snap share has increased in each of those weeks. He played 73% of snaps last week, finished with four catches for 34 yards and a TD, and added 16 rushing yards.

His targets and snap share are trending up, and so is his ownership.

Josh Palmer – 24.5% Rostered

The Chargers offense has not inspired much confidence lately, but that does not mean things cannot change. Their defense is not great, so they should continue to play from behind, which helps the passing game.

The problem is there are not enough weapons. Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler receive the majority of the targets. Palmer could be the solution once he returns from injury. He should provide another option for Herbert and can immediately start producing WR2 numbers.

Tight End

Pat Freiermuth – 42% Rostered

Freiermuth and Pickett follow the same logic. The offense is better without Canada, and they are throwing to the middle of the field more, which is where Freiermuth lives.

He finished with nine receptions and 120 yards last week. Now has a cakewalk matchup with the Cardinals. He needs to be rostered in every league and is the best option to stack with Pickett for DFS this week.
