Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

Jaylen Waddle Note

Did you know that Jaylen Waddle's 77 receptions are the second most for any player in NFL history through the first 12 games of his career? The only player in history with more receptions through that time period is Odell Beckham Jr. during his historic rookie season where he had 91 receptions through 12 games. Waddle is also fifth in the entire NFL in receptions this season and his 759 receiving yards are good enough for second among all rookies. After being ranked around the WR45 in pre-draft ADP, Waddle is now the WR14 on the year through 12 weeks and he's helping lead fantasy rosters to championships. He's an absolute home-run start every single week at this point and he deserves to be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR2 in this matchup against the Giants.

Myles Gaskin Note

How about this bounce-back performance from Gaskin this season?! After being one of fantasy football's most volatile RB options, he has settled in as the unquestioned starter here for Miami and is delivering reliable top-end production. He now has 39 carries over his past two games and has a combined 35 fantasy points. In fact, did you know that Gaskin has 30 Red Zone carries on the season? This is more than players like Nick Chubb, Antonio Gibson, Joe Mixon, Darrell Henderson, and Najee Harris to name a few. He's starting to convert with the opportunities and he now belongs in starting lineups moving forward as a trustworthy option. We might need to exercise caution when Malcolm Brown returns to the lineup, but for now it's all-systems-go. Against the Giants defense that's allowing 19.0 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs - the 6th highest mark in the league - Gaskin should be viewed as a mid-range RB2.

Mike Gesicki Note

From Weeks 3-8, Gesicki had just one game where he finished worse than the TE10 in Half PPR scoring formats. He was playing lights out football and was steadily rising further and further up rest-of-season rankings. Since Week 8 though, Gesicki has yet to crack the top-12 again and he even has a 0-0-0 performance sprinkled in there in a game where he saw 7 targets. He's now watching as guys like Durham Smythe finish with more receiving yards on his own team and we now have to be very concerned about Gesicki's outlook moving forward. He can be viewed as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 this week, but we need to recognize that he's starting to bring a lower floor than we once thought.
