Waiver Wire Pickups: Wide Receivers to Stash Ahead of Week 13
Donovan Peoples-Jones (WR – CLE) – 49% Rostered
Since Week 4, Peoples-Jones has averaged 72.4 receiving yards per game (15th among WRs). He has scored at least 11 PPR points in each of his last five appearances and is among the most consistent options outside of the upper tier of players. Thanks to their defense being so poor, the Browns have to rely on their passing game to get themselves back into games and that doesn’t look likely to change anytime soon.
Treylon Burks (WR – TEN) – 47% Rostered
After missing four games with turf toe, Burks looked fully healthy when he returned in Week 10 and has seen 14 targets over his last two games. Early on in the season, things didn’t seem to be clicking for the rookie, but he seems to have gained Tannehill’s trust as well as that of head coach Mike Vrabel. With potential shoot-outs coming against the Eagles and Chargers, Burks could be primed to make a big impact.
Parris Campbell (WR – IND) – 46% Rostered
The Colts have been messy, but since Week 6, Campbell is the WR10 in PPR formats on the back of three top-twelve finishes. In Campbell’s last four games with Matt Ryan at quarterback, he has averaged 18.5 PPR points and a 25-percent target share. The Colts will likely be put in more pass-heavy scripts going forward. Campbell is staying on the field and getting open. so he should be rostered everywhere.
Elijah Moore (WR – NYJ) – 26% Rostered
Moore has had a miserable season so far thanks, in part, to the poor play of QB Zach Wilson. It’s hard to imagine that Moore felt sorry for Wilson when the latter was benched this week. In the four games he has played with Mike White behind center, Moore’s average points per game (PPR) jump from 7.2 to 16.0.
White consistently makes more of the simple throws than Wilson who managed just four passing touchdowns in his seven starts this year. Moore could explode this week against a woeful Bears’ pass defense. He is a must-add before his value increases heading into next week.
