NFL Fantasy: Week 13 Waiver Wire Targets

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into Week 13, teams that haven't enjoyed their bye week will do just that. In saying that, this is the final week you may need to fill an empty spot vacated by players who's on a bye. Just like every other week, listed below are four players you should target this week.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Taylor Gabriel, WR, Falcons - With Julio Jones being bottled up for most of the day by Patrick Peterson, Gabriel was able to build off his previous three games that saw him accumulate a stat line of 13/196/2 by putting up 5/75/2 on Sunday. Julio Jones is still undoubtedly the No 1 on the team but it seems that Gabriel has thrust himself into the No 2 slot behind him. Gabriel has averaged five receptions over the last three weeks so look for that trend to continue and possibly even increase over the coming weeks. He's most likely unowned in most leagues so put your claim in now. (Owned in 6% of Yahoo Leagues)

Malcolm Mitchell, WR, Patriots - Mitchell has been quite the revelation for the Patriots over the last couple weeks, he's totaled 12 receptions, 140 yards, and three touchdowns. Tom Brady has even gone on record as of late to lament his feelings about how well Mitchell has looked in practice and in games. With Mitchell paying at a high level down the stretch with a quarterback who's at the top of his game, he should be a player you need to claim right away and pencil him in your starting lineup.

Wendell Smallwood, RB, Eagles - Ryan Matthews was ruled out for Monday's contest vs the Packers which thrust Wendall Smallwood into a bigger role. With a favorable match-up coming up this week vs the Bengals rush defense, Smallwood would be a good option once again if Matthews is unable to go or can only go at a limited basis.

Colin Kaepernick, QB, 49er's - The Kaep is back!! Kaepernick has seemed to have found the magic in his game once again that made him one of the games most valuable fantasy quarterbacks in years past. There aren't many QB's that possess the arm strength and running ability the Kaep does. Both of those assets were on display this past Sunday as he totaled 296 yards and 3 TD's through the air, and 113 yards on the ground. Pencil him in to fill a QB spot who's on a bye or ride him down the stretch. (Owned in 24% of Yahoo Leagues)

NFL Fantasy: Week 12 Waiver Wire Targets

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

What a week for starting players to get injured. Some of those to get hit with the injury bug were; A.J. Green, LeSeasn McCoy, Darren Sproles and Ryan Matthews. Featured this week is a player set to benefit from one of those injuries and some great options that can help you push toward a playoff spot. 

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Sammy Watkins, WR, Bills - The Buffalo Bills are hopeful that Watkins may return when first eligible in Week 12. Even if that isn't the case and he returns in Week 13, grabbing him now and stashing him for the playoff run could be a huge boost to your championship dreams. (Owned in 42% of Yahoo Leagues) 

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Tyler Boyd, WR, Bengals - With all-pro wide out A.J. Green possibly out for the season with a hamstring tear, his targets are going to have to go to somewhere. Boyd is a good bet to see a bulk of them as he was Andy Dalton's favorite target after Green went down. He went on to post a 6/54/1 line and should be poised to see more targets in Week 12 than the eight he saw this past Sunday. (Owned in 6% of Yahoo Leagues) 

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Eric Ebron, TE, Lions - Ebron has come on as of late by posting 70+ receiving yards in each of his last three games and one score. He looks to be a borderline TE-1 from here on out, you'd be hard pressed to find a TE with this much upside on the wire this late in the season so put a claim in if you can.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Tyreek Hill, WR, Chiefs - With Jeremy Maclin sitting out once again due injury, Hill was the Chiefs no.1 WR on Sunday. Although he didn't see 13 targets as he did in Week 10, he was able to turn his four receptions into 53 yards. Outside of Travis Kelce, Hill will continue to be the best option for QB Alex Smith down the stretch. If Hill is still available in your league, put those claims in now.

NFL Fantasy: Week 11 Waiver Wire Targets

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into Week 11 your waiver wire has undoubtedly been picked clean, which makes it that much more difficult to find viable options. Luckily for you I have yet another four options for you to feast your eyes on.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

C.J. Prosise, RB, Seahawks - With Christine Michael struggling and not operating at 100%, Prosise was the featured back on Sunday night. He out carried him 17-5 and also led the team with seven receptions totaling 87 yards, all in all he gained 153 yards from scrimmage. He's not built to be an every down back, made evident by some punishing hits he couldn't power through or withstand. With Thomas Rawls on the verge of returning, Prosise will lose some touches but will continue to see a high volume of passes coming his way. In saying that, it makes him a great Flex option or a place holder for a player on a bye week. (Owned in 35% of Yahoo Leagues)

Ladarius Green, TE, Steelers - The Pittsburgh Steelers big off season acquisition finally made it into a game on Sunday. Although he didn't play a whole lot, he looked healthy in the limited time he was on the field. Green saw four targets on Sunday and turned them into three receptions and 30 yards. As the weeks go on Green will be featured more and more, adding a player with his size and ability at a position his quarterback likes to use as a security blanket, could help lead you to a championship. He has some great matchups down the stretch so add him now and ride the wave. (Owned in 10% of Yahoo Leagues)

Thomas Rawls, RB, Seahawks  Rawls is set to return in Week 11 and it couldn't come at a better time for the Seahawks, as they've struggled to produce a reliable run game over the past three weeks. As I mentioned earlier, Prosise isn't big enough to sustain success between the tackles and with Cristine Michael struggling, Rawls could easily supplant both of them with a steady showing in Week 11. If Rawls is available in your league and your in need of RB help, Rawls is a great option down the stretch. (Owned in 48% of Yahoo Leagues)

Robert Woods, WR, Bills - Woods has had an up and down season as the de facto No.1 receiver for the Bills, he's either been productive or not. That type of inconsistency isn't what you want down the stretch, but if your in need of a WR to fill a players spot who's on a bye, Woods is worth a look. Not operating at 100%, he torched the Seahawks secondary for 162 yards on 10 receptions, with his team on a bye in Week 10 it's given him more time to heal. He may be in for another big week come Sunday. (Owned in 16% of Yahoo Leagues)
