Waiver Wire Report

Week 13:

* Note *

I think it is extremely important to make claims early in the season.  It is also important to save money for the playoff stretch as well, so spend wisely.  Waiver wires are different for everyone, so it’s difficult to make suggestions in regards to how much to spend on a given player or how to rank them in a standard waiver wire.  Please use your best judgement when making your claims, as you know your league-mates best and how they tend to spend or operate.  I’m ranking them by position, with the best adds at the top of each list.

Feel free to contact me @theFellowKGB with any questions.

** George Kittle could be dropped in All Redraft Leagues if you don’t have an IR spot.  There’s an outside chance he returns before this 8 week time table and is worth holding onto if you can.  The 49ers could be within reaching distance of the 7th wild card seed.

These TEs should be Owned.  If available, I’d strongly suggest adding the following:

Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews, Darren Waller, TJ Hockenson, Hunter Henry, Dallas Goedert, Noah Fant, Hayden Hurst, Jonnu Smith, Evan Engram, Rob Gronkowski, Robert Tonyan, Eric Ebron, Mike Gesicki
