Happy Tuesday Fantasy Footballers. I hope this week you are among the lucky few that are still fighting for your playoff lives. Also, I hope you read the post last week and were able to grab Gus Edwards and Josh Adams as they are now seemingly bell-cow backs for Baltimore and Philadelphia respectively. I was able to grab them two weeks ago and this week they saved my life in my main league. I hope they are doing the same for you. This week, most of you that are actually reading this are looking to secure your spot in the playoffs, so I have some one week wonders for you here that will help carry you. Every year it is crazy to me how fast the NFL season flies by, and now Week 13 is upon us. There should be less competition for waiver adds moving forward as some managers have clearly fallen off that are out of the playoffs.
Another point of interest is that we are past the bye week season, so it is full rosters from here on out. Whether your playoffs start next week or the week after, QBList is here to help you make sure you have your best foot forward. Let’s hop into the priority adds for Week 13. The ownership percentage is based on Yahoo Fantasy Leagues.
QB – Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens (42% Owned)
Come on guys…really? Lamar Jackson has run for 190 yards the past two weeks combined and he still doesn’t have majority ownership? That is absurd. Granted, he isn’t a great passer, but the floor here is undeniable. He has had two mediocre passing performances and he has a 20 point floor. That is fantastic. He now gets the Little Birdies on defense of the Atlanta Falcons in what is sure to be an uptempo game, perfect for Jackson’s skillset. Sure, Joe Flacco may be healthy, but it is my guess that he has a headset on regardless. Grab Jackson and start him confidently as he should be a QB1 as long as he is starting.
RB – Carlos Hyde, Jacksonville Jaguars (7% Owned)
With Leonard Fournette throwing fists on Sunday and getting suspended, Carlos Hyde now has the chance to be the feature bruiser for the week. Hyde has shown that he can handle a heavy workload and he should have just that on early downs this week in the Fournette role. With Blake Bortles hitting the bench, the running game will be heavily relied on and if you are struggling with injuries or inconsistency in your flex and need a win then this could be a worthwhile fill in.
WR – Adam Humphries, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31% Owned)
With over 50 yards and a touchdown in back to back weeks on 11 total targets, Adam Humphries is looking like an under the radar flex play at the WR position. There really isn’t a deep pool of WR’s to pick up on waivers as Josh Reynolds and DJ Moore are both over 50% owned, but I would check if those are available in your league. If you need help at the WR or flex and miss out on Hyde, grab Humphries and plug him in as a go to guy for the Bucs.
TE – Gerald Everett, Los Angeles Rams (13% Owned)
The recipient of two touchdowns last week, Gerald Everett is as good a dart throw as any this week in a high powered offense. He is my top streaming option this week.
