“Here’s a guy, here’s a guy who when he puts his contacts in, he can see better”
For most leagues week 13 is the final week before the playoffs start. Are you in the hunt? Have you clinched a playoff spot? Are you doomed to play in the loser’s bracket, but don’t wanna end up in women’s clothing at your next draft? Well you have come to the right place, because there is still hope for you regardless of how your season has gone thus far! We saw some key injuries and guys being placed on IR this week! Marvin Jones, Andy Dalton, and Jack Doyle all moved to IR, and Melvin Gordon is going to miss time with an MCL Sprain. Here’s what we have for moves you should consider!
Shallow leagues: (guys owned in most leagues but may be out there if you have a smaller league or less roster spots)
Austin Eckler, RB Chargers: Gordon injury opens up Eckler to be a direct handcuff and he should be owned in all leagues!
Josh Adams, RB Eagles: The Eagles said they wanted to get Adams more involved and that is what they did! Adams rushed 22 times for 84 yards and a TD this week. Doesn’t have a great schedule ahead but worth a roster spot for sure!
Josh Reynolds, WR Rams: Had his breakout game in week 11 but if people slept on him because of the bye, pick him up!
Carlos Hyde/TJ Yeldon, RB Jags: If the Fournette owner made the mistake of not handcuffing him with Yeldon or Hyde, pick them up if you need a one week fill in for a start. Fournette has been suspended for one week for the incident that happened against Buffalo.
Adam Humphries, WR Bucs: We talked about Humphries on the show last week. The vacated targets by OJ Howard created opportunities for Humphries the WR playing in the slot. Had a good week last week catching 6 balls for 54 and a score.
Nyheim Hines/Jordan Wilkins, RB Colts: Marlon Mack banged up and left the game with a concussion. Hines and Wilkins could see an increase in work this next week against the Jags.
Seattle Defense: Plays SF two out of the next three weeks!
Deepest of leagues
Justin Jackson, RB Chargers: Because Eckler is probably owned, look for Jackson if you need a guy to move into that support role recently filled by Eckler. He ran for 57 yards on only 7 carries and has big play ability.
Gerald Everett, TE Rams: had a bye last week but has scored 3 tds in last two games played. Good fill in for Doyle owners who need upside at the TE position.
