Winning Waiver Wire Tiers Entering Week 13


Winning Waiver Wire Tiers Entering Week 13

Each and every week in fantasy football there are surprise performances and there are injures. Both of these occurrences tend to lead to opportunity. Opportunity leads to touches, and touches tend to lead to fantasy points. Every week there is something to pay attention to in the NFL. At times it is injuries, others it’s bye weeks, and in 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic lingers and could possibly impact NFL teams and your fantasy rosters. All of these scenarios highlight the waiver wire and your need to pay attention to it.

Entering Week 13, the injuries continue to pile up and the player pool is getting smaller and smaller. In addition to navigating injuries, the bye weeks continue. Carolina, Cleveland, Green Bay, and Tennessee are on bye this week, removing several key fantasy assets from your lineups.

Brad Menendez is joined by Rob Sullivan this week to break down the Winning Waiver Wire Tiers Entering Week 13.
