It’s hard to believe, but Week 13 of the NFL season is here. Here are some waiver wire options to consider as we get closer to the fantasy playoffs.
Week 13 Fantasy football waiver wire pickups
Jalin Hyatt, WR, Giants
Rostership: Yahoo 3%, ESPN 2%
Hyatt tallied his first career 100-yard game last week against the Patriots on five receptions (six targets), and seems to have a clear connection with Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito. The Giants have a pretty easy schedule the rest of the way (outside of their two matchups with the Eagles), so Hyatt should be a production machine the rest of the way.
Pat Freiermuth, TE, Steelers
Rostership: Yahoo 48%, ESPN 42%
Freiermuth returned from injured reserve last week and caught nine of his targets for 120 yards in Pittsburgh’s win over Cincinnati. The Steelers' offense showed some explosiveness that was lacking under previous offensive coordinator Matt Canada, which could be a boon to Freiermuth. Plus the Steelers are going against the lowly Patriots next week.
Curtis Samuel, WR, Commanders
Rostership: Yahoo 28%, ESPN 35%
Terry McLaurin owners, look away. Samuel caught nine of his 12 targets for 100 yards in the Commanders’ Thanksgiving loss to the Cowboys, and now seems to be a key cog in Washington’s pass-happy offense. This week he’s going against a Dolphins defense that struggles to defend the passing game.
