  • Career years continue for ascending pass rushers: Taking a look at Quinnen Williams and Uchenna Nwosu, who were the up-and-comers who added to their career years this week.
  • The Green Bay Packers do IDP gamers a favor: For the first time this season, both Packers linebackers played every down together with De’Vondre Campbell returning to the lineup.
  • Is B-Wagz back?: Can IDP managers call Bobby Wagner an LB1 again after his best game of the season?
Estimated reading time: 39 minutes


WEEK 13 TAKEAWAYS

Make sure to check out last week’s waiver targets. Some of the key players stood out as potential adds after Week 13 for leagues of all sizes:

Waiver Wire
  • LB – Tony Fields II, CLV – With more injuries to the Browns linebacker room, Fields stepped into a larger role and shined this week. He has potentially earned more snaps in place of the injured Sione Takitaki going forward.
  • LB – Dylan Cole, TEN – Cole filled in as the top linebacker while David Long was nursing a hamstring injury that could sideline him in Week 14. Cole would be the top priority among Titans’ linebackers for those looking for a replacement.
  • EDGE – Michael Hoecht, LAR – Hoecht seems to have found a place at the top of the Rams edge depth chart, and he ended up having a career game as a result. The snaps are there for Hoecht to be a viable replacement option late in the season.
  • EDGE – Azeez Ojulari, NYG – Ojulari has missed a ton of time this season but appears to be healthy now, playing his third game of the year and landing his second sack.
  • S – Andrew Wingard, JAX – With Andre Cisco sidelined, annual waiver-wire stalwart, Wingard could potentially be an IDP option once again this season.
  • S – Teez Tabor, SEA – Ryan Neal has been dealing with a knee injury that kept him out of the fourth quarter this week. It’s possible Neal misses Week 14, but this situation should be monitored closer to game time.
  • CB – Nate Hobbs, LV – Cornerbacks don’t often make the waiver list but Hobbs has just been so productive relative to his position in every game he’s played this season. This being his first game back from injured reserve since Week 5, he’s likely out there in a lot of CB-required leagues.

  • POINT OF INTEREST: The gap between Mykal Walker and rookie Troy Andersen seems to have plateaued this week due to a similar share as last week. It was looking like Andersen could potentially take over the secondary linebacker role from Walker, but the gap didn’t continue to close this week, so it may not happen this year.

  • Elijah Hicks replaced rookie Jaquan Brisker, who missed his second game with a concussion but Brisker is probable to return after the Bears’ Week 14 bye.
