Here's a look at some players that should take priority if you're hoping to pick up some reinforcements from the waiver wire heading into Week 13.
Zonovan Knight, RB, Jets: From practice squad to top waiver wire priority. He did well in replacing Michael Carter, who is dealing with an ankle injury, rushing for 69 yards and catching three passes for 34 yards. Coaches opted for Knight over James Robinson heading into the game so if Carter can't play, Knight should be a go against the Vikings.
Benny Snell, RB, Steelers: Najee Harris had to leave the Monday night game with an abdominal injury. Snell got his first touches of the season as he rushed 12 times for 62 yards and scored. He should be the starter if Harris can't go against the Falcons in Week 13.
Treylon Burks, WR, Titans: The rookie scored his first career touchdown in strange fashion, jumping on a Derrick Henry fumble in the end zone. He was productive through the air, too, catching four passes for 70 yards for his second straight quality game.
Zay Jones, WR, Jaguars: Jones garnered 14 targets to catch 11 passes for 145 yards in the upset over the Ravens. Surprisingly, it was Jones' sixth game with at least eight targets this season. The fact that he was a big part of the plan coming out of the bye week could signal a trend of oncoming production. Elijah Moore, WR, Jets: With Mike White throwing the ball for New York, all Jets receivers get an upgrade. Moore had two catches for 64 yards and a TD after being freed from having Zach Wilson as his quarterback. The next three matchups are juicy.
Ty Johnson, RB, Jets: He played as the change of pace back and had six touches for 78 yards and scored. That's high efficiency and makes him a viable play if Michael Carter remains out with an ankle injury in Week 13.
Jelani Woods, TE, Colts: The rookie caught eight of his nine targets for 98 yards in the loss to the Steelers. The massive human being could build off of that success through the end of the season as he has great matchups after the Week 14 bye. He takes on the Cowboys next week.
Mike White, QB, Jets: If you want some options down the stretch, White could be a guy as he has great matchups down the stretch other than the Bills in Week 14. He did great in his season debut, throwing for 315 yards and three scores, against a bad Bears defense.
Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens: He's probably on the edge in terms of availability, but it makes sense to add him to your roster as he rushed 16 times for 52 yards and scored in the Ravens' loss to the Jags. He also had a fumble, however, so buyer beware.
Mack Hollins, WR, Raiders: He had four catches for 63 yards and scored in the overtime win against the Seahawks. That makes two straight games with at least four catches and at least 52 yards for Hollins.
DeAndre Carter, WR, Chargers: As long as Mike Williams is inactive, Carter has a shot to contribute. He had seven receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Cardinals. The TD was his second in three games.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Browns: Writing about fantasy football is kind of like writing about the stock market. You’re trying to find which players will create the biggest return on investment, even if that player happens to be a serial scumbag. Do you know how an iPhone is made? Is Apple still in your stock portfolio? It's kind of like that.
