Offensive Deep League Gems – Week 13
The fantasy football season is approaching the home stretch. By now, you have some idea of your chances to reach the playoffs. But even if a fantasy championship is not in the cards for you this year, there is no reason to throw in the towel or not try to improve your win-loss record.
On the converse, if you know that you could be close to clinching a postseason berth, it’s not the time to be complacent. If you are just one or two players or positions shy of where you want to be, then the waiver wire is an even more important resource for you.
The need to improve via the waiver wire is a more fraught proposal in leagues of 14, 16, 18 teams or more.

With that in mind, here are the top three waiver wire additions for Week 13, tailored especially for you deep-league GMs trying to get the most out of your season.
