MORE WEEK 13: Prime waiver pickups | FAAB funds planner

CeeDee Lamb harm replace

UPDATE: Lamb was once more a full participant in Tuesday’s observe.

Lamb (concussion) was a full participant in Monday’s observe and is predicted to play towards the Saints on Thursday Night time. We’re over every week faraway from the top harm he suffered towards the Chiefs, so we might be stunned if he would not play, particularly after there have been studies he cleared the concussion protocol final week however the Cowboys have been simply being further cautious with him. 

New Orleans provides up the fifth-most fantasy factors per sport (FFPG) to WRs, so Lamb ought to smash on this sport. We rank him because the WR4 in customary and WR3 in PPR leagues.

Quarterback | Operating again | Vast receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Amari Cooper COVID replace

UPDATE: Cooper reportedly nonetheless is not “feeling one of the best,” and is in actual hazard of lacking Thursday’s sport if he would not Wednesday.

UPDATE 2: Cooper is predicted to play Thursday night time towards the Saints.

Jerry Jones stated Cooper (reserve/COVID record) is absolutely anticipated to play towards the Saints, so we’ll take his phrase for it. There’s not a lot to dive into right here — he’ll both be dominated in or out given the circumstances of his earlier absences.

Once more, the Saints’ secondary may be very beneficiant to WRs, so Cooper is available in on the WR10 in customary and PPR leagues.

Antonio Brown harm replace

UPDATE: Brown (ankle) didn’t observe Wednesday.

Early final week, Bruce Arians stated he’s hopeful Brown (ankle) will return in Week 13 towards the Falcons, so we’ll should see if extra updates are available early within the week. For now, we do not have a lot to go on, however this might be a matchup towards the eighth-weakest protection in FPPG allowed. Nonetheless, we all know one among Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Brown are at all times more likely to see a quiet day whereas the others feast, however they continue to be must-starts in any matchup with Tom Brady on the helm.

Brown is our WR23 in customary and PPR leagues, however once more, any of the Bucs’ WRs have top-five upside any given week.

Kadarius Toney harm replace

UPDATE: Toney didn’t observe Wednesday.

There is no new details about Toney (quad), so we’ll simply should see how his updates go later within the week. The Giants sq. off with the Dolphins in Week 13, and whereas Miami has regarded higher on protection in current weeks, Rashod Bateman, Elijah Moore, and D.J. Moore have all eclipsed 100 yards previously three weeks towards them, so there’s nonetheless loads of room for WRs to supply.

Miami nonetheless ranks as a bottom-three unit towards fantasy WRs, so we like Toney because the WR28 in customary and WR27 in PPR leagues.

Sterling Shepard harm replace

UPDATE: ESPN’s Jordan Raanan studies there may be “hope” Sterling Shepard (quad) returns for Week 13 towards the Dolphins.

UPDATE 2: Shepard didn’t observe Wednesday.

Like Toney, there is not new details about Shepard (quad), both. We’ll replace each of those guys later within the day if info rolls in, however the identical sentiments we stated about Toney go for Shepard. This is likely one of the finest matchups for WRs, so if he performs, he is a lovely WR2.

Finally, Shepard would have the safer flooring, however Toney in all probability has the upper ceiling by advantage of his explosiveness and big-play potential. Due to his excessive flooring, we rank Shepard because the WR22 in customary and WR21 in PPR leagues.
