Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watch Week 13: It's Zay Day

Waiver Wire Watch Week 13

As a refresher, The Drop List consists of players who are rostered in at least 50% of Yahoo leagues and are no longer must-have assets, recommended additions are available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues, the Watch List contains in-depth notes on fringe waiver adds, and Deep Cuts includes player notes on those rostered in 5% or fewer of Yahoo and FFPC leagues.

The Drop List

With the 4-8 Packers squarely out of the playoff picture, odds are Aaron Rodgers (ribs) and the organization move forward with Jordan Love under center. No matter: Rodgers remains the QB26 in fantasy points per game with a single finish inside the top 12 all season.

Russell Wilson’s last four weekly finishes: QB22, QB21, QB20, and QB28.

With Elijah Mitchell expected to miss “6-8 weeks" with a potential reaggravation of the same knee injury he battled earlier this year, there’s no need to think he returns in time to be a trustworthy starter in any must-win fantasy playoff games.

Damien Harris (thigh, week-to-week) was on crutches in the locker room following Thursday’s loss, suggesting he won’t be around at any point for the fantasy postseason. Any return during the most important stretch of the year is also a start/sit headache worth avoiding.

Gus Edwards returned in Week 12 for the highest share of backfield touches (84.2%) in any game for a Ravens running back this year, rendering Drake useless on a season-low two touches. The journeyman should be viewed as nothing more than a desperate contingency option with Edwards healthy.

The RB33 and RB48 without Darrell Henderson the past two games, Cam Akers was unsurprisingly out-touched 14-8 by Kyren Williams against the Chiefs. There is no reason to roster any of Los Angeles’ players moving forward given that this offense has scored 20 points or less in all five games since its Week 7 bye.

Curtis Samuel has totaled two targets for a 3.7% target share with Jahan Dotson logging over 60% of Washington’s snaps in the past two games. Whereas this offense was previously able to support two receivers in averaging 38.7 pass attempts with Carson Wentz, Taylor Heinicke’s 28.5 attempts per game can barely support Terry McLaurin, let alone a second option through the air.

Cooper Kupp has not officially been ruled out for the year just yet following "tightrope surgery" on his ankle, but Matthew Stafford’s (neck, week-to-week) telling status will inevitably keep Kupp glued to the sidelines for the last-place Rams through the 2022 season.

Darnell Mooney (ankle) and Allen Robinson (foot) will miss the rest of the year following season-ending surgeries.

A gadget player in his own offense, Devin Duvernay has been fed just eight touches in Baltimore’s last three games.

Kyle Pitts is seeking a second opinion on his torn MCL before undergoing ligament surgery. There’s no need to hang onto him any longer given the ominous news.

Darren Waller has not played since Week 5 and reportedly aggravated his hamstring injury prior to Week 10. Slapped on injured reserve for a hopeless 4-7 team, my educated guess is Waller does not return this year.
