Week 13 Waiver Wire

smitty staff

Dion Lewis (NE/RB)

(Available in near 50% of all leagues)
In Week 12, he ran the ball six times for 24 yards and added four catches on seven targets for 34 yards. Sure, he is sharing carries with James White and LeGarrette Blount, but he has a strong chance to bump White out of a lot of playing time. And, since he pulls in passes more than he runs, Blount and Lewis can co-exist. There is risk, but he has low-end RB1 appeal if a full go and getting those touches!

Tyreek Hill (KC/WR)

(Available in near 65-70% of all leagues)
Hill scored a rushing, receiving and return touchdown against the Broncos, becoming the first to do all three in a single game since Gale Sayers back in 1965. He isn’t likely available in any dynasty leagues, but check just in case. However, in redraft, he makes a fine WR3/4 and he is available in 60-70% of most leagues.

Tim Hightower (NO/RB)

(Available in near 50% of all leagues)
Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower keep producing awesome numbers together in New Orleans. It’s crazy how both of these rushers keep thriving. In Week 12, Hightower totaled 105 yards (51 rushing, 54 receiving) all while Ingram ran for 146 yards and 1TD, while also pulling in a receiving score. Mark Ingram was insane in Week 12, that needs to be said. He has two 140+ rushing games in the last four games. He also has 4TDs in that span. While Hightower could have some bad games coming up should Ingram continue to shine, it’s important to note how productive one of these rushers would be if starting by themselves. Hightower is a must add for that reason, and he also has strong flex value right now in larger leagues.

Malcolm Mitchell (NE/WR)

(Available in near 80-90% of all leagues)
Last week, he pulled in 4/98/1TD… this past weekend, against the Jets, he pulled in 5/42/2TDs. He’s a must-player WR3/4 in larger leagues (with upside for more), and he is a potential gem in dynasty (and not likely available in competitive dynasty leagues).

Wendell Smallwood (PHI/RB)

(Available in near 70% of all leagues)
Ryan Mathews is officially out for Monday night’s Week 12 game against the Packers, and while Darren Sproles is expected to play, Smallwood has super-strong flex value in this Monday night battle. Smallwood isn’t likely open in any dynasty leagues, but clearly redraft leaguers have continued to leave him on the waiver wire. Mistake!
