Each year around this time, a number of players emerge and become key contributors to fantasy football playoffs. It might be a bit early to tell if any of those players will come from top Week 13 free shipping and more free agents, but there are certainly a few contenders. Jogging replaces back injuries like Alexander Mattison, Jamaal Williams, Dontrell Hilliard, Boston Scott, and Tevin Coleman are all worth taking and the WRs are undervalued like Kendrick Bourne also need to be monitored. At this point, the name doesn’t matter – just the opportunity and production.
Whether you are looking for a “long-term solution” or just one person to fill in next week, full free agent list Are you insured? In addition to attractive competitions like Tony Jones Jr., Matt Breida, D’Onta Foreman, Russell Gage, Van Jeffersonand those mentioned above, we have plenty of Week 13 streamer specific recommendations at QB, WR, TE, and D/ST, which can be found at the end of this list.

MORE WEEK 13: Full disclaimer list
Deciding whether to use a top disclaimer this week really depends on what you need and what you’re trying to prevent your opponent from getting. Mattison is an easy call for the top pick of the week if he’s available, but if you don’t need to run again, you can keep your top claim against other players. All in all, Williams is worth asking if we get some negative reports about D’Andre Swift (as), but it doesn’t look like Swift will last long, if at all. You could make a similar case for Jones Jr if Alvin Kamara (knee) and Mark Ingram (knee) are expected to be on the field on Thursday night.
Hilliard, Foreman, Scott, Coleman, and Breida are all likely to drop requests, but you should probably save your high claims, as it’s likely that at least some of them will switch. free agency stage. In fact, if you’re in a shallow league, all of of those people (plus David Johnson and Rex Burkhead) most likely on the free dealer wire on Wednesdays. The same goes for most WRs, although Bourne and Jefferson are a bit more prominent.
Top fantasy football exemptions for Week 13
Unless otherwise noted, only players who own less than 50% of Yahoo leagues will be considered.
Alexander Mattison, RB, Vikings. Mattison scored in Week 12, but the main reason he became the most sought-after man of the week was Dalvin Cook’s shoulder injury that kept the Vikings star off the field. Until we have other information, it’s safe to pick Mattison as the starter for Minnesota, and that means great value for the rest of the way. Mattison has excelled in Cook’s absence before, including in Week 5 against Detroit when he had 113 yards of dash, 40 yards of receiving and TD. As it turns out, Mattison is going up against the Lions in Week 13, so he’ll be an easy RB1 in that game.
Jamaal Williams, RB, Lion. With D’Andre Swift (the role) once again potentially “in question”, preferably entering Week 13, Williams has added value. He was already a highly used “backup”, but after 20 touches and 83 yards total on Thanksgiving, it was clear he would be fit for an effective role in the very favorable Week 13 game. with Vikings if Swift is absent.
MORE WEEK 13: Full disclaimer list
Dontrell Hilliard, RB, Titans. With Adrian Peterson gone and Jeremy McNichols (concussion) still sidelined, Hilliard took advantage. He turned 12 with a successful 131 yards and a TD against a tough Patriots defense in Week 12. Most of his output was on the 68-yard TD run just before halftime. , but he still participates a lot and gets one more pass. . D’Onta Foreman handles more touches (20 to 13), but Hilliard has shown enough over the past two weeks to stay active as Tennessee’s “1B” pick even with McNichols healthy. He’s well worth taking for the long haul, as more favorable games await after Tennessee’s Week 13 goodbye (vs the Jaguars, @Steelers).
Kendrick Bourne, WR, The Patriots. Bourne has been quietly the Patriots’ most effective wide ranger this season, and he continues his breakout campaign with five catches (six on target) for 61 yards and two previous TDs. Titans. Bourne is not exactly a high-form player, but with at least four catches in five of the past six games, he has shown he has a pretty solid grounding in PPR tournaments. He’s going to have a tough stats match against Buffalo next week, but with Tre’Davious White (knee) gone, Bourne still plays.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Jet. In Michael Carter’s IR’s first game, Coleman was the de facto lead in the Jets’ backyard. He ran 16 times in 67 yards and caught another two passes in just three yards. Coleman owners (or potential owners) will be annoyed with Austin Walter’s 9 runs and touches on goal, but Coleman is clearly at the top of this committee. Next week’s game against Philadelphia isn’t particularly scary, so Coleman has some potential value in flexibility in that game.
