Brian’s Fantasy Breakdown: Week 13

Waiver wire pickups

  1. Adam Humphries

Despite the strong start in Tampa Bay due to Ryan Fitzpatrick and Deshaun Jackson, the Buccaneers have come back down to earth after the first couple of weeks. With Jameis Winston back at Quarterback, throws have not been as downfield as they were with Fitzpatrick, which has given Humphries a much beeper target share from the slot. Humphries has averaged 17 points per game since week 8 and can be a flex play going forward as he seems to be Winston’s second favorite target behind Mike Evans.

  1. Lamar Jackson

Not only has Jackson’s past two starts resulted in wins, but they have also been extremely productive fantasy weeks. Jackson has averaged 18 points per game over the past two weeks. Jackson could be a lower QB1 the rest of the year as Jackson’s rushing makes up for his below average passing abilities. The only risk with Jackson is that Joe Flacco is looking more ready to return this week against Atlanta, so hopefully, the Ravens stick with Jackson as it has resulted in two wins in the past two weeks with him at the helm.

  1. Josh Reynolds

After Cooper Cup tore his ACL, the Rams needed a receiver to emerge as the third option behind Robert Woods and Brandon Cooks.  Reynolds broke out against the Packers and has been a constant red zone target of Jared Goff. The Ram’s use 11 personnel meaning they have 3 receivers on the field a majority of the offensive snaps.  This ensures that Reynolds will be seeing the field more which gives him a chance for more targets. Reynolds has averaged 19.5 points per game over the past two weeks he has played. Reynolds is currently only owned in 33 percent of ESPN leagues but should be owned in many more. Reynolds can be a possible flex play depending on the matchup especially when a top cover corner shuts down Brandon Cooks.
