Week 13 is upon us. 2 more weeks of play for most league’s regular season. Will you stand or fall with your current roster, or do you need 1 more player to put you over the edge?
QB: Matt Barkley, Bears- I did not think I would be saying this but, he threw for 300+ yards and 3 TDs in his first ever start. This week it’s the 49ers who have given up 7 TDs to QBs in the last two weeks. After that, at Lions, then home vs the Packers and Redskins. Not a bad schedule. Don’t like him? Ryan Tannehill or Trevor Siemian.
RB: Tim Hightower, Saints- 65% owned in ESPN leagues. Even with Ingram, he might be worthy of a flex play. I said it more than once, Matt Asiata is no worse than a 50/50 shot to score a TD any given week. Not bad if you are desperate. If Adrian Peterson is on the waiver wire in your league, grab him up. He might have a shot to play in weeks 15-16.
WR: Taylor Gabriel, WR- I don’t know where this dude came from, but I like his highlights. With Matt Ryan turning his game up a notch, he is the perfect compliment to Julio Jones. Go get him and keep him in your lineup. Dontrelle Inman, Chargers, and Maquess Wilson, Bears, look like guys who are on the rise.
TE: Lance Kendricks, Rams- Now that Jared Goff is the signal caller, Hendricks might be a more viable target. Jermaine Gresham, Cardinals- is looking like his old self in Arizona. This could be exactly what Palmer has been missing.
D/ST: Chargers D/ST is worth a shot this week vs the Buccos. The Packers D/ST is an OK play vs the Texans who gave up 10 points to the Chargers last week.
