Fantasy Football Update 11/29/16: Week 13 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers, Matchup Plays and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 13
November 29, 2016
Now that Week 12 in the NFL is officially in the books, it’s time to start looking forward to Week 13, and if you’re a fantasy football owner that means checking out the waiver wire for some sleeper prospects moving forward. Let’s visit some of the hot trends out there right now and see who’s being added in leagues everywhere.
Tyreek Hill, WR, Kansas City Chiefs: We’ve talked about Hill a little bit this week, but we should probably check him out again since he’s the hottest thing in fantasy right now. He’s coming off nine catches, 52 yards, a receiving TD, a rush TD and a free kick TD.

Talk about multifaceted. Hill has scored in double digits during four of his last six weeks, and is now a big part of the KC attack. He gets Atlanta this week.
San Diego Chargers Defense: Let’s go defense for a few minutes and check out the Chargers. They’re coming off another nice effort in Houston, giving up 13 points and bagging three picks, a sack and a fumble recovery.
That makes at least 13 points in three of four weeks for the Chargers D, and they’ve scored at least 12 five times since Week 3. They’re a very underrated squad going into a mid-range Tampa Bay matchup this week.
Dallas Cowboys Defense: Let’s go defense one more time and check out Dallas. It’s a bit of a mystery why they’re owned in nearly half the fantasy leagues out there, considering they’ve only hit double-digits in fantasy once this year.
The Cowboys are trending this week as sleepers, probably because they’re entering a matchup against a bad Minnesota offense on a short week. We’re not quite convinced, but the adventurous owners out there might give them a spin.
Kenneth Dixon, RB, Baltimore Ravens: Dixon is coming off eight fantasy points against the Bengals last week, but that’s not the reason he’s trending. He managed more touches than Terrance West in a game for the first time during that one, which could signal a changing of the guard in Baltimore.
Dixon is a guy on the upswing if you’re in the market for an RB. He gets a “meh” matchup against the Dolphins this week.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, San Diego Chargers: Let’s finish up this week with Inman, who exploded onto the scene in the Houston game. In that one, he bagged 119 yards and a TD on six catches.
Inman will likely get some additional looks this week against Tampa Bay, since Tyrell Williams is banged up. The Bucs are a mid-range matchup.
