The playoff countdown is here.
We are exactly one week from finding out who’s in and who’s out. Hopefully, you’re already locked in. If not, you should probably #AskElvin on Twitter @elvinryan_HTM a little more often.
The best part about Week 13, other than the anticipation leading to the playoffs, is we’re done with byes!
It’s all on you now. No more blaming byes for your losses. Now you can drop that bye week insurance and add some of the guys I’ll mention below. I mean, what’s the point in having a second quarterback? Especially when you could be stashing a playoff winning running back!
By the way, you should never stop stashing potential talent. It doesn’t make sense to be fully satisfied with your roster in an ever change fantasy football world. I’ll be releasing position rankings throughout the week on Twitter. So, do yourself a favor and AGAIN go follow elvinryan_HTM.
So, before my fiancée favorite little kitten steps on my keyboard anymore, let’s get this party started…
The following should already be rostered, if they aren’t ADD them—
James Washington, WR, Steelers— While JuJu could return Sunday, Washington is still the teams deep call guy. He had seven grabs and a touchdown Sunday. He’s good enough for you stash.
Ryan Griffin, TE, Jets— Double-digit fantasy points in four of the last five games. The Jets gave him an extension, so they clearly want him to be more involved. Tight ends are slim pickings, so add him.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, Titans— He’s had five starts and in all of them he’s scored at least two touchdowns. He’s no Lamar Jackson but he can run. If you have a bad match-up this week at QB you should add him.
Deebo Samuel, WR, 49ers— He was on this week last week and yet barely anyone added him. He didn’t light up the stat sheet Sunday, but he did catch another touchdown. He’s a talent that should be added.
Sam Darnold, QB, Jets— Another Jet who should be owned in all leagues. He’s not seeing ghost as of late. Three straight solid games from Sammy… They have a very week scheduled coming, so add him!
Jonathan Williams, RB, Colts— He’s been stud filling in for my fantasy back, Marlon Mack. He’s a top 15 back just based on volume alone. The only sad part for those who add him is it won’t last forever.
Now I’ve got my, what the Pelicans would call, Squad Six. These six probably aren’t owned in your league, that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be though…
Cole Beasley, WR, Bills— He’s Mr. Consistent, Mr. Steady, Mr. Solid, Mr. Reliable whatever you want to call him along those lines he probably is. He’s quietly had double-digit scoring in seven games this year.
A.J. Brown, WR, Titans— Now that Tannehill is under center it seems like you just watch Titans games waiting for Brown to make that big play. The only concern I have is he 100% BOOM or BUST.
Russell Gage, WR, Falcons— The Falcons are down their franchise back and their defense sucks. What’s that mean? They are going to throw a lot! Gage has had 28 targets in the last four games… WOW.
Jack Doyle, TE, Colts— Ebron is now on injured reserve. Doyle is the guy, AGAIN. Feels like 2017 all over again. We’re missing is a little Luck. Get it? Well, Top 15 TE here on out is easily achievable for Jack.
Benny Snell Jr., RB, Steelers— Samuels shit the bed when given the opportunity to shine. The Kentucky product, Benny, had 21 carries last week. Conner will NOT be back this week. Another short-term add.
Robby Anderson, WR, Jets— I drafted him with all the expectations in the world. He let me down, I dropped him, and never looked back. But an easy schedule ahead makes him a solid dart throw.
That’s all for this week’s waiver wire must-adds. Any questions just #AskElvin and follow @elvinryan_HTM on Twitter for the latest and greatest position rankings throughout the week.
