Fantasy Football 2015: Week 13 Sleeper Picks
Taking a Look at the Week 13 Waiver Wire Trends and Sleeper Options in Fantasy
December 4, 2015
It’s a fantasy football Friday, and Week 13 is already upon us. On this day each week, we take a look at the waiver wire and check out some of the sleeper pickups out there. We’ve got an intriguing batch for you to peruse today, so let’s examine the numbers and see who might fit your daily or seasonal league roster.
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins: We’ve been on the Parker bandwagon this week, thanks to a nice four-catch, 80-yard day against the Jets in Week 12. He also scored a TD.
Parker got a whopping 10 targets in that Jets game, and should be in line for more work this weekend. He gets a great matchup against the Ravens and is on the radar as a sleeper flex/WR3 in fantasy.

Washington Redskins Defense: The Redskins are a prime pickup for those fantasy owners who are streaming defenses this week. They’re coming off a solid effort against the Giants, allowing 14 points and grabbing three sacks and three interceptions.
The Redskins get the Cowboys this week, and with Matt Cassel under center we should see at least a couple of turnovers and a relatively low-scoring game.
Crockett Gillmore, TE, Baltimore Ravens: Gillmore went into Week 12 with two straight double-digit scoring performances under his belt, but fell off against Cleveland with just three catches for 20 yards.
Gillmore gets a decent matchup this week against the Dolphins, and will probably get a half-dozen targets or so. If he can haul one of those in while the team’s in the red zone, he’s got a shot at a score and a nice fantasy line.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Denver Broncos: Lots of people are turning to Osweiler this week, whether it’s out of necessity or true belief in his talents. Regardless, he’s got at least 14.2 fantasy points in his last two outings.
Osweiler will face a crummy San Diego secondary this week, and it’s hard to imagine he can’t handle them after playing well against the Patriots. He’s probably the top sleeper option among quarterbacks from here on out.
Brandon Bolden, RB, New England Patriots: If you really want to roll the dice on an RB, check out Bolden. He posted 15.5 fantasy points in last week’s loss, hauling in four passes for 84 yards and a score.
With the way the Pats receiving corps has been decimated by injury, it’s hard figuring out who will get the big lines. Bolden is as good a bet as any, since he’s pretty good as a receiver out of the backfield.
