Even though Week 12 isn’t fully in the books, it’s time to cast an eye over your Week 13 waiver wire pickups for the 2021 season.
We continue having to deal with bye weeks, with four teams on bye this week
- Carolina Panthers
- Cleveland Browns
- Green Bay Packers
- Tennessee Titans
All of these pickups are written in percentage, not priority. For a player to be eligible they have to be owned in less than 50% of leagues. The rostered percentage is taken from ESPN. Now, let’s get into them!
Carson Wentz (IND) @HOU 44.3% rostered
Wentz might’ve thrown two INTs against Tampa Bay, but he managed to have a decent fantasy performance. This week the Colts face Houston, and they might return to just running the ball down the Texans’ throat, but Wentz should still have the opportunity to air it out in this game.
Teddy Bridgewater (DEN) @KC 19.4% rostered
King of the waiver wire, Bridgewater is back for another week. The concern is if he is ready to play for this week, after missing time through injury. The matchup against the Chiefs is one to target, with the team giving up an average of just under 20 points per game to the position.
Taylor Heinicke (WAS) @LV 21.1% rostered
Heinicke is yet to play this week, so this might look really foolish come tomorrow, but currently, he is an effective streaming option. The Washington attack has been effective the past few weeks, with Heinicke being a big part of that. A matchup against the Raiders isn’t one to avoid either.
Others to Consider
- Matt Ryan (ATL) v TB 36.8% rostered
- Daniel Jones (NYG) @MIA 27.9% rostered
- Tyrod Taylor (HOU) v IND 26.5% rostered
- Jimmy Garoppolo (SF) @SEA 15.7% rostered
