IDP Waiver Suggestions and Start/Sits - Week 13

Week 13 is here, and for some leagues, the playoffs begin. For others, this is the last week of the fantasy regular season. Week 13 marks the last of the bye weeks, however, the injuries don’t go on bye. Danny Trevathan was the most recent linebacker to go down. As the season winds down, the waiver wire is getting thinner and thinner, but I think we can find some crumbs that can help your team down the stretch.

IDP Waiver Wire

Defensive Line

Sheldon Rankins, DT, New Orleans Saints (35 snaps/66 percent)

Rankins return has helped the middle of the Saints line and he’s recorded sacks in two of his last three games. He’s getting plenty of snap usage, which makes him a viable DT2 in leagues requiring defensive tackles. Since returning in Week 9, he’s recorded five or more fantasy points in three straight games.

Malik Jackson, DT, Jacksonville Jaguars (40 snaps/73 percent)

Jackson is another guy who has been productive as of late. He’s notched three sacks in his last two games and has three straight games of seven or more fantasy points. He’s another DT2 target off the wire in defensive tackle-required leagues.

Kyle Williams, DE, Buffalo Bills (58 snaps/85 percent)

Williams has three sacks on the year, but is producing an 8.6-percent tackle rate on the year (resulting in 46 tackles). He’s also had an impact near the line of scrimmage, notching seven tackles for a loss. Williams is on pace for 65 total tackles this season and is worth a pickup in tackle-heavy formats.

Noah Spence, DE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (51 snaps/81 percent)

In the six games since Tampa’s bye week, Spence has sacks in four of those six games and has double-digit fantasy points in three of those games. Spence is producing an 11-percent QB pressure rate and is on pace to finish his rookie year with seven sacks. He’s worth a look in big-play scoring formats as a depth pickup.
