Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 13
Quarterback: The annoying QB carousel for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I believe, has finally settled with Jameis Winston. They need to get as many looks at him as they can in order to make a decision on his future with the team. He is also coming off a solid performance against San Francisco where he passed for 312 yards and two touchdowns.
Running Back: Filling in for the injured Kerryon Johnson, LeGarrette Blount had a great game for the Lions. He ran for 88 yards and two touchdowns against a really good Bears defense. If Johnson is not able to play again next week, expect Blount to continue to get the load of the carries for the Lions.
Wide Receiver: Quietly, Curtis Samuel has recently had a strong few weeks of production (minus the Pittsburgh game when the whole team struggled). In three of the past four weeks he has managed to score a touchdown, and has been a very good playmaker for the Panthers offense. Going against the Bucs this week, expect him to put together another good game as a runner and a receiver.
Flex: Instead of choosing a tight end this week, I am going to choose a flex player, mostly because the tight end position is very weak on the waiver wire at this point in the season. DJ Moore is still available in some leagues, and if he is in yours, I’d strongly consider picking him up. He totaled 15 receptions, 248 yards, and a touchdown in his past two games. Also, to reiterate what was said above, the Panthers play the Bucs, who boast one of the worst secondaries in the entire league.
