We’ve almost reached the fantasy football playoffs, so let’s attack the Week 13 waiver wire. There are still a number of upside options on waivers who are worth stashing. Also, don’t forget that there’s no value to holding onto your FAAB money at this time of year. If you have it, spend it.
Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Tyrod Taylor, BUF (8-15%) — Back as the starter in Buffalo, Taylor gets a favorable stretch run for the fantasy playoffs.
