Fantasy Football Players to Buy Low in Week 13

Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

He may not be easy to steal away from his current fantasy manager, but you have to try and strike while you can. Jalen Hurts is coming off his worst performance of the year and is dealing with an ankle injury. He’s in danger of missing this week and the Eagles have their bye next week.

So why bother? Hurts has been one of the most consistent fantasy producers from the quarterback position this season. Even when he isn’t wowing us in the passing department, he gets it done on the ground. If you can get him now and stream the position during his bye week, Jalen Hurts can be the reason you win your fantasy playoff matchups.

Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers

Aaron Jones has been dealing with an MCL injury and hasn’t been his productive self for weeks. He returned to action last week after missing Week 11. Jones rushed 10 times but was held to just 23 rushing yards. Regardless of his performance, it was a great sign to see him play in a game just before the Packers’ bye week.

When the Packers return from their bye, Aaron Jones should be feeling much better and ready for his typical workload. He’ll have some decent matchups just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Do what you can to get him now.

Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Ja’Marr Chase had been one of the most consistent wide receivers for the first 7 weeks of the season. He hasn’t produced much in his last 4 games. He does have 2 touchdowns in his last 4 games, but he hasn’t eclipsed 50 receiving yards in a single game in that span.

Fantasy managers may be panicking enough to let him go for a bargain. Even in his “bad” weeks, Chase gets enough targets and receptions to make up for it. His upside alone is worth having him in your lineups on a weekly basis. He has 3 games with 100+ receiving yards and a touchdown.

Darren Waller, TE, Las Vegas Raiders

No doubt, Darren Waller is one of the top-elite tight ends in the league. It won’t be an easy pitch to snag him from your league-mate but try this. Darren Waller hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 4. He’s only gone over 50 receiving yards in half of his last 6 games. He is likely to miss his Week 13 game with a knee injury.

Of course, all of that is true and sounds much worse than it actually is. Darren Waller is the TE4 in PPR on the season. Among tight ends, he ranks 3rd in targets, 4th in receptions, and 4th in receiving yards. It will actually be good for him to miss this week so he can come back stronger and better for you and your fantasy team.

  • Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens

Fantasy Football Players to Sell High in Week 13

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson is coming off a great fantasy performance in Week 12. He threw for 247 passing yards (the most he’s had in a game since Week 3) and 2 touchdowns. He should have D.K. Metcalf at full-strength next week which will be great for his fantasy value.

Now that our pretend pitch for him is over, let’s talk about why you should be selling him. Russell Wilson has not been the same player since his finger injury in Week 5 which caused him to miss 3 games. Since his return, Wilson has not looked accurate with his passes. His completion percentage is awful and he’s thrown just 2 touchdowns in his last 3 games, both of which came last week.

Yes, there is a possibility he’s getting better, but I would not be risking your chances of a fantasy championship on a quarterback with a bad throwing finger.

Chuba Hubbard, RB, Carolina Panthers

Christian McCaffrey is out for the year and everyone will be scrambling to get Chuba Hubbard if they don’t have him already. He will get a healthy number of touches, but the Carolina Panthers are not playing good football right now.

Just because Chuba Hubbard is expected to be the lead back for the Panthers does not mean he will replace the value Christian McCaffrey has. The Panthers have some of the toughest matchups for running backs in the coming weeks. If you have Chuba Hubbard, his value will not be any higher than it is right now. Sell him.

Terry McLaurin, WR, Washington Football Team

Terry McLaurin is extremely talented, don’t get me wrong. Considering the draft price you paid for him, he isn’t likely performing the way you’d hoped he would.

He does have 7 or more targets in every game besides Week 1. He has four 100+ receiving yards and a score, performances on the year. He’s just been hot or cold lately. In Week 4, he had 123 yards and 2 touchdowns. He followed that up with 2 consecutive games under 50 yards and zero touchdowns. McLaurin had 122 yards and a touchdown in Week 7, but followed up with 2 consecutive games under 60 receiving yards and zero touchdowns.

Sell him now, but don’t let him go for cheap. His target share alone provides you with a safe floor so make sure you are getting an elite player in return.

Gerald Everett, TE, Seattle Seahawks

Gerald Everett isn’t the worst tight end, especially as of late. He has a total of 16 receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown in his last 3 games. He’s coming off an impressive 9 target game. He caught 5 balls for just 37 yards but also scored a touchdown. He did so on Monday Night Football so everyone witnessed it.

As the Gerald Everett manager, you know what he did on Monday doesn’t come often for him. Prior to his last game, Everett has not scored a touchdown since Week 1. He’s only gone over 50 receiving yards just twice this season.

Sell him quickly while everyone is impressed with his nationally televised performance.
