As you set your fantasy football lineups for Week 13, we take a look at some tight ends that may be available to grab from the waiver wire in the week ahead.

Week 13 Byes: Ravens, Bills, Bears, Raiders, Vikings, Giants

Fantasy football waiver wire: TE pickups for Week 13

Pat Freiermuth, Pittsburgh Steelers

Rostership: 41.8%

Freiermuth has been quiet al season, but finally exploded in Week 12, putting together nine receptions for 120 receiving yards. Before that, he had just nine receptions for 60 yards over five games this season. With offensive coordinator Matt Canada out, things could be turning around for this Steelers offense, and that could start with Freirmuth seeing more involvement.

The Steelers face the Cardinals in Week 13.

Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams

Rostership: 41.6%

The Rams had a big week, pulling out of a slump to defeat the Cardinals. Higbee caught five receptions on five targets, tying his game-high for receptions this season, adding up 29 yards and two touchdowns. These were his first two TDs of the season, so this may not exactly be a guarantee for next week, but Higbee could continue to see some solid action in the receiving corps.

The Rams take on the Browns in Week 13.

Cade Otton, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rostership: 29.45

Otton has been fairly solid over the last few weeks. While he’s not blowing us out of the water with fantasy earnings, he has grabbed four receptions for over 40 yards in each of the Bucs’ last two games. If you’re looking for something in the 8-to-10-point range, Otton’s a decent choice.

The Bucs play the Panthers in Week 13.
