Fantasy Football Update 12/1/16: Week 13 Waiver Wire Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers, Matchup Plays and Waiver Wire Adds for Week 13
December 1, 2016
Tonight marks the beginning of Week 13 in the NFL, and there’s plenty for us fantasy football owners to do in the meantime. Let’s check out some of the notable waiver wire adds out there and see if anyone might be right for your team this week.
Tyreek Hill, WR, Kansas City Chiefs: We’ve talked about Hill once or twice this week already, and he remains the top waiver wire add in the league. He’s coming off a stellar all-around game against Denver, scoring 23.5 fantasy points in all.

Hill now has at least 10.1 fantasy points in four of his last six weeks, and he’s going into a favorable matchup this weekend against Atlanta. Grab him if you can.
New York Jets Defense: The Jets defense isn’t what it once was, and it’s been the source of a lot of losses for the team this year. They’ve scored double-digit fantasy points just once this season and have yet to find the end zone.
Even with all that in mind, New York is getting added this week due to a nice matchup against the Colts on Monday. Indianapolis has given up the 11th-most fantasy points to opposing defenses this season.
Kenneth Dixon, RB, Baltimore Ravens: We’ve talked about Dixon a couple of times this week as well, and he’s probably the guy you want to add if you’re looking at RB.
Dixon posted a modest eight points against the Bengals, but he did out-touch Terrance West. Dixon could be in for a relatively high-volume workload against the Dolphins this week.
Lance Kendricks, TE, Los Angeles Rams: Kendricks is probably the most-added TE in fantasy this week, as he's coming off 51 yards and a TD against New Orleans.
Kendrick's has at least seven targets in five of his last six games, including 12 against Carolina earlier this month. He’ll get a mid-range matchup this weekend against the Patriots.
Malcolm Mitchell, WR, New England Patriots: Speaking of the Patriots, let’s finish up with Mitchell, who bagged five catches on seven targets last week for 42 yards and two scores.
That makes three touchdowns in two weeks for Mitchell, who has scored at least 15.8 points in each of those games. The Rams are right around a middle-of-the-road WR matchup, so we could see some good things on Sunday.
