The fantasy football grind continues for another week! It’s time to think playoffs for most of the good people that are reading this article, so not only should you think about rostering these players as potential starters this week, but also for potential depth on your team should you have an injury. Let’s take a look at three potential Week 13 streamers that you can plug right into your lineups.
Week 13 Fantasy Football Streamers
Mike White, New York Jets, QB:
Welp, the cat is out of the bag. It’s clear what this Jets team can be, with a competent quarterback. I doubt we’ll see Mike White lose this job after throwing for over 300 yards and 3 TDs vs. Chicago in bad weather. He’s not a one-hit-wonder either, as he also had a game where he threw for over 400 yards last year. He also followed it up with two duds (one of which was a 0 TD, 4 Int game). I’m not expecting a repeat performance vs. a decent Vikings defense, but I do think that White is worth a waiver wire add, especially if one of your QBs get injured down the stretch. It’s hard to find this kind of upside in a scarce fantasy position like QB.
Treylon Burks, Tennessee Titans, WR:
He’s rostered in under 40% of leagues, but his upside is undeniable. He plays for a team that would run the ball 40 times per game if they could, but that’s not feasible. Especially with matchups vs. the Eagles, Jags, and Chargers coming up. In the past two games, Burks has turned the corner of his injury-riddled rookie season. He’s garnered 14 targets, 11 catches, and 181 yards in just those past two games. He’s turning into the number one wide receiver that the Titans drafted him to be, and more importantly, Ryan Tannehill is treating him like that number one wide receiver. Expect continued dominance out of the big-play threat.
Ty Johnson, New York Jets, RB:
Apparently, the New York Jets are a theme of this waiver wire article, but it’s well-deserved. For some reason, James Robinson was a coach’s scratch this past week, Breece Hall is on the IR, and Michael Carter suffered a sprained ankle in the game. Enter Ty Johnson who rushed 5 times for 62 yards and a TD vs. the Bears in rough conditions. He’s clearly the next man up, and could be in for a workhorse role, even though he has bad matchups vs. the Vikings and Bills coming up. He’s rostered in less than 1% of leagues, so he’ll definitely be on your waiver wire if you need a running back!
