Fantasy Football 2017: Week 13 Waiver Wire Picks
The Trending Waiver Wire Pickups and Sleepers in Fantasy Football Week 13
November 29, 2017
With week 13 about to begin tomorrow evening, it’s a good opportunity to visit the fantasy football waiver wire and check out some of the sleeper options out there. Let’s check out some of the more promising lower-end names who are likely still out there in your league.
Tennessee Titans Defense: Those fantasy owners who like to string defenses will want to visit Tennessee this week. The Titans are coming off a solid 11-point outing against Indianapolis, and they get another nice matchup versus the Texans on Sunday.

The Titans D has hit double-digits just twice this year, but they’ve done it twice in the last five games. Houston is giving up the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing defenses this season.
Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers: With QB being a tough position in fantasy this year, it’s harder than usual to find a reliable guy. Garroppolo could offer some low-end value, however, as he’s making his first start for the Niners this weekend.
Garoppolo gets the Bears defense this week, and though Chicago is tougher this year than in seasons past, he might find a few holes.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, New York Jets: We haven’t talked about Kearse in a while, and since he’s still out there in almost 60 percent of leagues he’s worth looking at.
Kearse is coming off his first 100-yard game of the year against Carolina, and he’s got 19 targets over the last two outings. He could break loose agin with a fading Kansas City defense on the horizon.
Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks: If you want to dig deep for an RB play, Davis is the guy for you. He was out of action in the 49ers game and was able to rush just six times for 18 yards and 5.9 fantasy points in the Falcons outing.
There’s some optimism over Davis’ groin injury, and the coaching staff is hopeful he’ll play against the Eagles. Deeper-league owners will want to at least monitor the situation here.
Zay Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills: There’s not a lot of fantasy options out there in Buffalo, but Jones is providing some nice low-end value to enterprising owners.
Jones has been targeted 17 times over his last two games, bagging seven receptions for 101 yards and a TD. It’s worth watching to see if Kelvin Benjamin returns in Week 13, however, as that will affect Jones’ stats.
