Fantasy Football: Top 5 Add/Drops after Week 13

It’s that time of year. Fantasy Football playoffs have begun and, at this point in the season, most rosters are pretty much set. Yet, there are still certain players out there on the waiver wire who could benefit your team. Whether you plan on using them as a spot starter for a week, or whether you are picking them up to keep them away from your opponent, the waiver wire still matters.

DSN is here to let you know who to add and who to drop heading into your Fantasy Football playoffs.




1. Add Shaun Draughn


Owned in only 63% of ESPN Fantasy Leagues, Draughn looks to be the most added player heading into Week 14. With Carlos Hyde still on the shelf for the San Francisco 49ers, Draughn will continue to be the No. 1 back for San Francisco. While he still hasn’t hit over 60 rushing yards in a game this season, he’s a threat in the passing game as well and scored his first touchdown of the season last week. With a matchup against the Cleveland Browns on the horizon, Draughn should be your No. 1 target on the waiver wire.



 2. Add Kamar Aiken

Kamar Aiken

If Doug Baldwin is still available, he should be the WR you are going after, but odds are he was snatched up last week. If that’s the case, Aiken is most likely your next best option. Aiken is currently slated in as the No. 1 WR for the Baltimore Ravens. Although their offense isn’t the most prolific with Matt Schaub at QB, Aiken is still a viable option as you aren’t going to find any other No. 1 WRs on the waiver wire this late in the season. He’s still available in nearly 40% of ESPN Fantasy Leagues, and with at least five receptions in his last five games, Aiken should be your No. 1 waiver priority if you’re looking for a WR.



3. Add Darren Sproles


In most leagues, DeMarco Murray is the only Philadelphia Eagles’ RB who is owned, but that shouldn’t be the case anymore. With Murray fully healthy, Sproles out-carried last year’s leading rusher, 15 to 8. With Ryan Matthews still sidelined with a concussion, Sproles looks to be the man to own in the Eagles backfield. As a threat on the ground and in the passing game, Sproles is a realistic FLEX option for anybody in need of one in Week 14.



4. Drop Stefon Diggs


From Week 4 through Week 8, Diggs was the darling of fantasy rosters across leagues. Since Week 8, Diggs hasn’t had more than 66 yards in a game and has failed to find the endzone even once. Unfortunately, Teddy Bridgewater limits what Diggs can do offensively, and with the weather getting worse, the Minnesota Vikings will probably lean on Adrian Peterson more than ever. If you got some use out of Diggs when he was useful, then you were one of the lucky ones, but it’s safe to drop him now.



5. Drop Brandon LaFell


Owned in over 80% of ESPN Fantasy Leagues, LaFell has not lived up to expectations at all this season. Even with injuries to Danny Amendola, Julian Edeleman and Rob Gronkowski, LaFell wasn’t able to even approach WR 1 production. LaFell has failed to find the endzone even once this year, and with a matchup against the Houston Texans on the horizon, LaFell shouldn’t be trusted in any league next week.
