2015 NFL Fantasy Football Week 13: Waiver Wire Pickups

Here's Mike Dietrich's weekly spot to pick some widely available players in your 10- and 12-team fantasy football leagues.

This is probably your last week of the regular season. If you are locked into the playoffs, I would recommend getting your RB handcuffs just in case injuries occur in the playoffs.  But if you need a win this week and have a empty starting spot, here are a few guys to pick up;

QB

  • Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles: A much better fantasy QB than in actual football action. Plus, he has an awesome schedule for the fantasy playoff season starting next week with the Tennessee Titans.
  • New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick: He has been close to a QB1, and in the next two weeks has bottom 10 defenses on his schedule in the New York Giants and Titans.

RB

  • Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson: He has the job all to himself in a top-5 scoring offense.
  • Washington RB Alfred Morris: They gave him 24 carries last week. Not a bad shot to take.
  • San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn: The 49ers' offense is much better under QB Blaine Gabbert, and he continues to get 20 touches a game.

WR

  • Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin: After last week's three-touchdown performance, he is a top-20 fantasy WR. With TE Jimmy Graham out, he should get more targets.
  • Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief: He resurfaced last week and seems to now have made a connection to QB Matt Hasselbeck.
  • San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin: Back-to-back solid weeks and a pretty good schedule moving forward.

TE

Defense

  • Chicago Bears: The 49ers have been better, but not so much on the road.
  • Tennessee Titans: Blake Bortles will throw interceptions to go with the positive fantasy stats.
Best of luck!
