Week 13 Post-Waiver Wire

Week 13 Post-Waiver Wire Pickups

In his first week back from injured reserve, Logan Thomas ran 23 routes and saw six targets. Taken in a vacuum, it’s not great, but it is promising considering he just returned from a long stint on IR. The schedule going forward is excellent, with matchups against Las Vegas, Dallas twice, and Philadelphia twice. Over the past four weeks, the Eagles rank dead last against the tight end, while the Raiders aren’t much better at 29th. Check and see if he’s available.

Week 12 Post-Waiver Wire Pickups

Despite his primo matchup in Week 11, Cam Newton is still available in almost half of ESPN leagues. He threw for two touchdowns and ran for another one against the Washington Football Team. In Week 12, he faces a Miami defense that has allowed the fourth-most rushing yards to opposing quarterbacks over the past four weeks. Newton does have a bye next week, so be aware, but he’s a great streaming option for Week 12.

Week 11 Post-Waiver Wire Pickups

Tua Tagovailoa looked good in his return against the Ravens in Week 10, throwing for 158 yards in less than a half of action and scoring a touchdown on his only carry. The Week 11 matchup against the Jets has ‘blow-up’ written all over it, as their defense has allowed 22.56 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks.

Week 10 Post-Waiver Wire Pickups

Jeff Wilson is a stash pickup that I don’t think you can play this week, but he is going to be a valuable asset going forward. Last year, Wilson was a huge factor in the rushing game, contributing 733 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns over 12 games. Shanahan is going to work him into this backfield, and the upcoming schedule is extremely favorable. After this week’s matchup against the Rams, the 49ers go to Jacksonville, play Minnesota at home, have back-to-back road games against Seattle and Cincinnati, then Atlanta at home, at Tennessee, and at home against Houston in Week 17. Imagine! You could be playing Jeff Wilson against Houston in your fantasy Super Bowl! Don’t sleep on Jeff Wilson.

Week 9 Post-Waiver Wire Pickups

Last week against the Tennessee Titans, Zach Pascal didn’t see a lot of action, despite playing 98% of the Colts’ snaps. However, players like this make for ideal Week 9 post-waiver pickups. With T.Y. Hilton in concussion protocol, he looks to be the second wide receiver option behind Michael Pittman. He’s a sneaky plug-and-play option against the New York Jets who allowed all three Bengals receivers to obtain double-digit fantasy points in Week 8.
