Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups and Free Agent Adds – All Positions

Michael Gallup - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, Waiver Wire Pickups

For most fantasy football leagues, there are just two weeks left in the regular season. We're all in the race for the last playoff spot or trying to improve our playoff seeding. In order to do that, we need to stay active on the waiver wire.

With the playoffs right around the corner, it appears fantasy managers everywhere are starting to roster more and more handcuffs in preparation for the playoff race, anticipating more running back injuries. This is based on just how few options there were for players with a rostership percentage of fewer than 55%. If you're looking for a running back, good luck out there.

Let's look at the top Week 13 waiver wire pickups and free agent adds for all positions. Be sure to also check out all of our fantasy football waiver wire advice, and our free new Who Should I Pickup? Waiver Wire player comparison tool to get an edge on the competition!

Running Backs – Waiver Wire Options

Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens – 55% Rostered

In his first game of the 2022 season in Week 7, Gus Edwards received 16 carries and finished with 66 yards and two touchdowns. He handled 50% of the team's running back carries. In Week 8, he once again led the Ravens' backfield with 11 carries for 65 yards, once again handling 50% of the team's running back carries. He left early in Week 9 and the team had its bye in Week 10. Edwards was inactive in Week 11 before returning this past week.

In Week 12, he finished with 16 carries for 52 yards and one touchdown. Edwards ended up handling 84% of the team's running back carries. Every week he's been active, he's been the team's preferred and primary rusher. He's an RB3 with RB2 upside whenever he finds the end zone.

Joshua Kelley (7% Rostered) & Isaiah Spiller (4% Rostered) – Los Angeles Chargers

In the event Austin Ekeler were to get injured, one of these guys would be extremely valuable. Fantasy managers should prioritize Joshua Kelley over Isaiah Spiller, but both of these guys are worth the look. In Kelley's first game back after a four-game IR stint, he played 14 snaps to Spiller's eight. Sony Michel is now completely irrelevant.

They both received two carries, but Kelley had the slight edge in routes run and targets. Kelley was also slightly more effective, finishing with 20 total yards to Spiller's five. Prior to landing on IR, Kelley had been the most effective No. 2 rusher for the Chargers this season. I'd expect his veteran status to allow him to withhold Spiller down the stretch. In fact, with Kelley coming back and immediately out-snapping and out-touching Spiller, there's a decent chance Kelley widens the gap in the coming weeks.

Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams – 37% Rostered

Last week when Darrell Henderson played just four snaps, fantasy managers saw Kyren Williams play more snaps than Cam Akers, although Akers out-touched him. This week, the snap count widened in favor of Williams. He played 38 snaps to Akers' 16. He also out-carried Akers, 11–8. This is important because last week, Akers was the primary rusher for the Rams. It should be noted that despite receiving three more carries than Akers, Williams finished with fewer rushing yards.

Just like last week, however, Williams finished with 21 routes run to Akers' five and earned three targets to Akers' zero. In just one week, Williams seems to have taken a firm grasp of the leading role in this backfield. However, it comes with little to zero upside. This offense is terrible. There are very low chances of a touchdown and with Bryce Perkins behind center, a capable runner himself, it's unlikely Williams will see too many targets either.

Darrell Henderson Jr., Jacksonville Jaguars – 47% Rostered

The Jaguars claimed the veteran running back after he was cut by the Los Angeles Rams. It's a bit of a mystery why Sean McVay disliked Henderson so much. By no means was Henderson a great talent, but he was solid and dependable. In 2020, Henderson finished with 783 total scrimmage yards and six touchdowns. In 2021, he had 864 total scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns.

In Week 12, Travis Etienne left the contest against Baltimore with what was described as a foot injury. The severity of the injury at this time is unknown. He stayed dressed throughout the game, so it's possible the injury is minor. However, considering the foot injury that kept him out the entire 2021 season, Henderson is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.

Alexander Mattison, Minnesota Vikings – 35% Rostered

Handcuff running backs tend to get less and less valuable as the season goes along because there is less time for the starter to get hurt. I understand that sounds grim, but it's the truth. For Alexander Mattison, there are only 3–4 weeks left where starter Dalvin Cook could get hurt, which might put Mattison into the driver's seat. That's certainly not ideal for Mattison's waiver wire value, but as we're approaching the end of the fantasy football regular season, most teams have handled the majority of their byes, and because of this, there's less need for startable players on your bench.

Instead, you can start chasing upside on your bench. Mattison has a massive upside. If Cook were to go down, you'd have yourself a top-15 running back. While there are other players on this list that have more week-to-week value, Mattison carries just as much upside as anyone.

Others to Consider:

James Cook, Buffalo Bills – 25% Rostered

Despite the trade acquisition of Nyheim Hines, the No. 2 running back for Buffalo has continued to operate as the team's No. 2 running back. In Week 11, he had 11 carries and 86 yards. He doesn't yet have any standalone value and should be viewed strictly as a handcuff, but he's the guy fantasy managers should want behind Devin Singletary.

Zamir White, Las Vegas Raiders – 3%

Josh Jacobs was added to the injury report late in the week with a calf injury. Jacobs ended up playing his typical role and handled 25+ total touches. However, this is just a reminder that if anything were to happen to Jacobs, White would likely become the primary rusher for the Raiders.

Jerick McKinnon, Kansas City Chiefs – 38% Rostered

Jerick McKinnon should only be considered in full-PPR leagues, but he's earning roughly 4–6 targets per game. The problem is he's not being used in the passing game at all. He's a low-level RB4 starter in full PPR, but there isn't much upside here.

 

Wide Receivers – Waiver Wire Options

Treylon Burks, Tennessee Titans – 51% Rostered

Treylon Burks is heating up and he's beginning to play like the first-round receiver he is. Fantasy managers expected him to be a clone of A.J. Brown and that he would seamlessly fit right into that role. That expectation was maybe always a bit optimistic considering just how good AJB is, but we're starting to see it now.

Over his last two weeks, Burks has earned 14 targets and finished with 11 receptions for 181 yards. He has become the clear No. 1 receiver for Ryan Tannehill and it's starting to show up in the fantasy football box score. He's had target shares of 17.6% and 27.5% over the past two weeks for a combined 22%.

Fantasy managers should absolutely be buying. You have the first-round pedigree, so you know he's an elite player. Rookies, especially receivers, tend to get better as the season rolls along. When you combine those two elements with his increased opportunity, you got a player everyone should want on their rosters.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, Cleveland Browns – 50% Rostered

Never mind his Week 12 performance of just four targets, two receptions, and 16 yards. Fantasy managers should completely forget about it. No one has a good game every single week. Fantasy managers should be more than willing to give Donovan Peoples-Jones a pass after averaging 10.2 half-PPR PPG from Weeks 4–11. In that span, DPJ was the WR30.

During that time, he was incredibly consistent. He scored between 7.0 and 14.6 half-PPR in seven straight contests. His best weekly finish was WR14 and his worst was WR48. He had five weekly finishes of WR33 or better.

He had been over 50 yards in seven straight games prior to Week 12. He recorded over 70 yards in five out of seven and had at least four receptions in all seven games. The point is, prior to Week 12, DPJ was playing some really good football. Don't let one poor week deter you, they happen to everyone.

Michael Gallup, Dallas Cowboys – 48% Rostered

No one knows what will happen with Odell Beckham Jr., but there are plenty of reasons fantasy managers should be looking to add Michael Gallup this week. When Noah Brown had been healthy, he had largely played over Gallup in 12-personnel (2 WR sets), which has limited Gallup's upside because it limited the number of snaps and routes he was running. That all changed during their game on Thanksgiving.

He played 76% of the snaps, which only trailed CeeDee Lamb (80%) and Dalton Schultz (84%). More importantly, Noah Brown played just 45%. Gallup ran 29 routes on Dak Prescott's 30 pass attempts. This is the role fantasy managers have been expecting all year.

The increased playing time led to eight targets, which he turned into five receptions and 63 yards. His eight targets were second to only Lamb's 11. As long as he stays in this role, he should be on the WR3 radar with some WR2 upside on a great offense being led by a quarterback who is playing some really good football.

Parris Campbell, Indianapolis Colts – 53% Rostered

Over the last four weeks where Matt Ryan has started at quarterback, Parris Campbell has seen a total of 38 targets. During that time span, he has at least five receptions in all four of those contests. He's been over 55 receiving yards in each of the last four- Matt Ryan started games and hasn't scored below 9.2 half-PPR points.

He has become a staple of the Colts' passing game and continues to operate as their primary slot receiver. With Indianapolis lacking any true receiving threat at tight end, Campbell has become Ryan's preferred security blanket. While this role may limit his receiving yardage totals because his targets tend to be closer to the line of scrimmage, he is an excellent option in any PPR-scoring league. In such settings, Campbell should be treated as a WR3 moving forward for as long as Ryan stays under center.

Skyy Moore, Kansas City Chiefs – 10% Rostered

Skyy Moore has played under 30% of the team's snaps in seven weeks this season. However, in Week 11, he played 42% of the team's snaps, and in Week 12, he played 46%. Despite the somewhat limited playing time, Moore finished with six targets this past week, which was second to only Travis Kelce's eight. He finished with five receptions and 36 yards.

In Week 11, Moore once again finished with the second-most targets for the Chiefs only to Travis Kelce. He earned six targets the week before, catching five of them for 63 yards. That's back-to-back weeks with six targets and five receptions. Should these positive performances earn him “more” playing time, Moore might just live up to his offseason hype.

Isaiah McKenzie, Buffalo Bills – 33% Rostered

Isaiah McKenzie played under 50% of the team's snaps in Week 11 and had been rotating the slot receiver responsibilities with rookie Khalil Shakir. That changed in Week 12 with McKenzie being the primary slot receiver and logging a snap share of 72.7%.

More importantly, his routes run finally ticked up in a big way. He ran 40 routes, which was tied for third on the team. Stefon Diggs ran 47 just to give you an idea of the positive fantasy role McKenzie had this past Thursday.

He finished with 10 targets, which was the most targets he's had in any game this season. He ended up catching six of those targets and finished with 96 yards and a touchdown. If McKenzie continues to operate as the team's primary slot receiver, he could work himself into having WR3 value.

Zay Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars – 24% Rostered

Zay Jones has four games with 10 or more targets and another two games with eight or more. He has more games with double-digit targets (four) than he does games with fewer than five targets (two). He has six games with at least five receptions and five games of at least 50 yards. He has two contests with 100 or more yards. Despite having only found the end zone one time, he still has seven games of at least 6.5 or more half-PPR points.

In the Jaguars' last two games, Jones has 24 targets, 19 receptions, and 213 yards. He's been a full-time player all year and through 11 games is Trevor Lawrence's No. 2 leading receiver.

Odell Beckham Jr., Free Agents – 46% Rostered

It was on Thanksgiving when we started to hear about the Odell Beckham Jr. recruiting train. News broke of what teams he'd be visiting with first, which of course prompted some fantasy football excitement, and then this happened...

Who knows if this will impact his free agency recruitment, but it's certainly another angle we'll be hearing about more in the coming days. No matter what happens, it's tough to see OBJ signing somewhere soon, getting acclimated to the playbook, being in football shape to where he can play consistent snaps, and being fantasy productive all within the next 4–5 weeks.

Jameson Williams, Detroit Lions – 39% Rostered

The Lions opened Jameson Williams' 21-day practice window, all but ensuring he would be returning to the field sooner rather than later.

He was one of the most explosive receivers in last year's draft class and the Lions have a very good offense. While Amon-Ra St. Brown will continue to be the primary option in this passing game, Williams' ability to beat teams over the top could make him an appealing boom-or-bust WR4.

Elijah Moore, New York Jets – 26% Rostered

Okay, so while the box score looks good, fantasy managers must keep expectations in check. New quarterback Mike White clearly helped the offensive production, but there are still reasons to be cautious about Elijah Moore's future prospects.

He played just 35% of the team's snaps and finished with a 7% target share. With those numbers in mind, fantasy managers will likely view his two receptions, 64 yards, and a touchdown just a little bit differently. Still, if Mike White stays behind center, there's reason to be somewhat optimistic. Hopefully, this performance will earn more playing time.

DeVante Parker (13% Rostered) & Nelson Agholor (1% Rostered) – New England Patriots

We'll cover both of these players here. The ideal target is DeVante Parker if you're in deeper leagues, but Nelson Agholor is also worth a look based on Jakobi Meyers' unknown status due to an injury he suffered during their Thanksgiving game, which limited him to 29% of the team's snaps.

Parker has played at least 76% of the team's snaps in seven games this season. In those seven contests, he has scored at least 8.3 half-PPR points in five of them. He has recorded at least 64 yards in four of those games. He's been a decent WR4 when he's been healthy. If Meyers is forced to miss time with his shoulder injury, Parker would be in line to be Mac Jones' primary target.

Nelson Agholor has generally seen an uptick in playing time whenever Meyers has missed time. In Weeks 3 and 4 where Meyers did not play, he recorded at least 40 yards in both games. In Week 12, when Meyers hardly played, Agholor had 65 yards and a touchdown. If Meyers does suit up in Week 13, Agholor can be ignored. If Meyers doesn't play, he's an interesting boom-or-bust WR4.

Others to Consider:

Julio Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 18% Rostered

He's worked as the No. 3 receiver for Tom Brady for the past few weeks. He's had at least four targets each of the past four weeks.

Mack Hollins, Las Vegas Raiders – 20% Rostered

With Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller on IR, Mack Hollins has worked as Derek Carr's No. 2 target behind Davante Adams. In 11 games this season, he's had seven games of five targets or more.

Van Jefferson, Los Angeles Rams – 7% Rostered

Cooper Kupp is on IR and his season is all but over. News broke yesterday that Allen Robinson II also sustained a season-ending foot injury. That will put Van Jefferson in the No. 1 role for the rest of the season. He finished with seven targets yesterday and managed to find the end zone. However, this offense is possibly the worst in the NFL.

D.J. Chark Jr., Detroit Lions – 10% Rostered

D.J. Chark was signed this past offseason to be the Lions' primary deep ball threat. He played 66%–81% of the team's snaps during the first three weeks before being put on IR before Week 4. In those first three weeks, he earned 18 targets. He finished with 13.2, 0.0, and 6.1 half-PPR points in those first three weeks. He finished with 46 or more yards in two of three games and scored a touchdown in one. He returned in Week 11 but played just 16% of the team's snaps. This past week, he ran 31 routes, which was third to Amon-Ra St. Brown (33) and Kalif Raymond (32). He finished with five targets, two receptions, 16 yards, and one touchdown. As he gets healthier, his role will likely grow, but Jameson Williams' return is coming.

Greg Dortch, Arizona Cardinals – 3% Rostered

Rondale Moore left the Week 11 game early due to a groin injury, which cleared the way for Greg Dortch. He wasn't active this week due to a thumb injury. It looks like Moore will miss a few more weeks, so if Dortch is able to get back on the field, he's someone to keep an eye on. As the starting slot receiver (four games) for Arizona, Dortch has scored 9.8, 13.5, 12.5, and 14.8 half-PPR points.

Alec Pierce, Indianapolis Colts – 18% Rostered

With Matt Ryan under center, that puts Alec Pierce back into play. Ryan started in Weeks 1–7 and 10–11, but Pierce didn't play during the first two weeks of the season. In the other seven games, Pierce scored 7.6 half-PPR points or more in four of them. In those seven games, he earned 41 targets, which is roughly 5.85 targets per game. This offense has been better with Pierce and we've seen him be productive with the veteran signal-caller.

Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers – 20% Rostered

Romeo Doubs could return in Week 13 and with the Packers' season all but over, he should see ample snaps moving forward. While Christian Watson has come on in recent weeks, Doubs averaged 6.1 targets per game from Weeks 1–8. In those eight games, he produced three games of 11.2 half-PPR points or more.

 

Tight Ends – Waiver Wire Options

Foster Moreau, Las Vegas Raiders – 39% Rostered

With the injury to Darren Waller, Foster Moreau has become the Raiders' primary tight end. If you're looking for a more in-depth analysis of what Moreau's role has looked like since Waller's injury, you can find that here. This past weekend, Moreau played 100% of the snaps and ran a route at an elite rate. He ran 37 routes, which trailed only Davante Adams and Mack Hollins (39). Moreau finished with seven targets on Carr's 36 attempts, good for a 19.4% target share.

Since Week 7, the beginning of Waller's inactive streak, he's had 33 targets in six games. In those six contests, he has 18 receptions and 210 yards. He's also found the end zone twice.

Hayden Hurst, Cincinnati Bengals – 65% Rostered

Hayden Hurst has six games with at least five targets this season, six games with at least five receptions, and five games with at least 40 yards. Over the past few weeks, the Bengals have leaned heavily on their passing game and that's unlikely to change in Week 13.

This upcoming week, fantasy managers have a likely shootout on their hands when the Bengals go up against the Chiefs. Not only will this game likely have the highest implied point total of the weekend, but the Chiefs are allowing the 14th-most points to tight ends this season. This will likely be a perfect game script for Hurst in a positive matchup.

Evan Engram, Jacksonville Jaguars – 40% Rostered

Evan Engram has struggled in his last three games, totaling just five receptions and 26 yards combined. However, prior to that, he had recorded four receptions and between 40–69 yards in the four weeks prior to this three-game cold spell. We've seen a really good stretch of play and a bad stretch of play, but his utilization hasn't changed. This past week, he ran a route on 35 of Trevor Lawrence's 37 dropbacks. That is an elite rate, so despite his poor numbers over the past three weeks, the opportunity is still very, very good.

In Week 13, Engram gets to go up against the Lions, who have given up the fourth-most points to tight ends this season. In Week 14, Jacksonville plays Tennessee, who has allowed the 13th-most points to tight ends this season. If you're streaming tight ends, Engram has an every-down role, runs routes at a high rate, and has two plus matchups the next two weeks.

Greg Dulcich, Denver Broncos – 52% Rostered

Greg Dulcich continues to have an elite role in the Denver offense. He rarely leaves the field and his route run participation rate is superb. He's incredibly athletic and his average depth of target and air yards per game indicate he's being used down the field, which is an attractive asset for tight ends in fantasy football.

However, the dreadfulness that is the Broncos' offense is going to continue to limit his upside and will hinder his week-to-week consistency. Still, tight ends with his type of role are hard to find. If you're looking for a more in-depth analysis of what to expect from Dulcich for the rest of the season, you can find that here.

Austin Hooper, Tennessee Titans – 14% Rostered

Over the past six games, Austin Hooper has become more involved in the passing offense. He had four targets this past week and finished with three receptions for 30 yards. He ran 27 routes on 34 Ryan Tannehill dropbacks. That's an elite rate and that'll give Hooper a chance for some week-to-week consistency, which is something we've started to see a bit more of since their bye in Week 6.

In his last six games, Hooper has finished with 30 or more yards in five games. Last week, he managed to find the end zone twice. His role has changed since the bye and Hooper is running more routes. That's led to an increase in targets. He had just 10 targets in his first five games but has 22 in his last six.

Others to Consider:

Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders – 11% Rostered

He's the starting tight end for the Commanders, but John Bates cut into his role a bit in Week 12. He's seen a consistent 4–6 targets per week, but the upside in Washington is low. Taylor Heinicke has just seven passing touchdowns in his six starts, which leaves a bit to be desired for the pass-catchers. The target competition of Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, and Curtis Samuel also are not ideal, but in a pinch, if you're desperate in deeper leagues, he's not a terrible option.

Trey McBride, Arizona Cardinals – 12% Rostered

Trey McBride has walked seamlessly into Zach Ertz's role, which is very fantasy-friendly. He's playing the majority of the snaps, running a bunch of routes on a team that tends to be very pass-happy due to their poor defense, but there's a lot of target competition here. Trying to earn targets with Marquise Brown and DeAndre Hopkins on the squad won't be easy. It'll get more difficult with Rondale Moore or Greg Dortch on the field.

 

Quarterbacks – Waiver Wire Options

Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns – 58% Rostered

Deshaun Watson will be eligible to return to game action in Week 13 and now is the time fantasy managers should be looking to target him. Quarterbacks who can score points with their arms and their legs are absolute cheat codes in fantasy football and Watson certainly qualifies as such. He's averaged between 28–38 rushing yards per game since entering the league. He's also averaged 0.19–0.47 rushing touchdowns per game. Over 17 games, those averages equate to 3–8 rushing touchdowns and 476–646 rushing yards per season. That should be very appealing.

He also has some very appealing weapons in Cleveland. Amari Cooper is an underrated No. 1 receiver and Donovan Peoples-Jones is your ideal deep ball threat having a career season. David Njoku is one of the most athletic tight ends in the league, who was also in the midst of a career season before getting hurt. He will have arguably the best pure running back in the league (Nick Chubb) that defenses will have to respect and a top-tier offensive line. Put it all together and it wouldn't be surprising to see Watson be a league-winner down the stretch once he shakes off the rust.

Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars – 61% Rostered

Trevor Lawrence has been playing really well as of late. In his past six games, Lawrence has had three games with 20 or more points and two with 24+. He had one blooper of 6.82 points, but in his defense, that was against the Denver Broncos, who have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. This past weekend against the Ravens, Lawrence finished with 321 yards and three touchdowns. For fantasy purposes, he finished with 24.94 points. He hasn't thrown an interception since Week 8 when he played Denver. Prior to that, his last interception was in Week 5.

In the next two weeks, Lawrence goes up against the Lions and Titans, who allow the second and fourth-most fantasy points, respectively, to quarterbacks this season.

Daniel Jones, New York Giants – 64% Rostered

If you're in need of a safe starter with some upside, Daniel Jones is the guy for you. He's only scored below 13 points one time this season. On the flip side, he's been above 21 three times, over 24 twice, and finished with a season-high of 28.78. Despite the poor group of receivers, Jones has continued to be a positive fantasy asset. A lot of that is because of what he brings on the ground.

He has rushed for at least 20 yards in nine out of 11 games. He has four rushing scores on the season and it's this rushing ability that gives him a ceiling outcome every week. The Giants play the Washington Commanders in Week 13, who have allowed the 13th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. That matchup and rushing floor will keep him a high-end QB2 this upcoming week.

Others to Consider: Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans – 19% Rostered, Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons – 38% Rostered

 

Team Defenses – Waiver Wire Options

Seattle Seahawks Defense – 18% Rostered

The Seattle defense is one fantasy managers can use the next two weeks. In Week 13, they'll battle the Los Angeles Rams, and in Week 14, they'll face off against the Panthers. The Rams have allowed the most fantasy points to defenses this season and that was with Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp for the majority of the season. They'll have neither next week. The Panthers have given up the eighth-most points to fantasy defenses.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense – 67% Rostered

Tampa Bay will be at home in Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints. They've given up the sixth-most points to fantasy defenses this season. They've been unable to get anything going on the ground, which has often forced Andy Dalton to air the ball out. While Chris Olave has been fantastic, there's little behind him, and outside of one week, defenses have mostly been able to hold Alvin Kamara in check.

Pittsburgh Steelers Defense – 20% Rostered

The Steelers' defense recently got T.J. Watt back and in Week 13, they'll go up against the Atlanta Falcons. Marcus Mariota has been pretty good at limiting turnovers, but this is an offensive unit that lacks firepower. If you're streaming defenses, the Steelers are one to target. They have a good couple of matchups coming up, too. In Week 14, they'll go up against the Ravens, which isn't a great matchup, but it's not terrible either. In Weeks 15 and 16, they'll face off against the Panthers and Raiders, respectively.

Minnesota Vikings Defense – 38% Rostered

The Vikings go up against the Jets in Week 13 at home. The Jets' offense has been fairly generous to fantasy defenses, giving up the 12th-most points. Now granted most of that has been with Zach Wilson under center and the offensive unit looked better with Mike White, but this is still a unit to attack. If the Vikings' offense is able to build a lead, the defense will be put in a positive situation to force White into some bad decisions.

Others to Consider: Cleveland Browns Defense – 7% Rostered
