Walking the IDP Waiver Wire: Week 13
There are 2 weeks left in the fantasy regular season. Let's lock in on some solid waiver claims and position ourselves for playoff success.
With just 2 weeks left in the fantasy football regular season, it’s time to get your teams ready to finish the job you started months ago. With many scheme changes and injuries last week, there might just be that final player on waivers who will help lead you to fantasy glory. Let’s take a look at this week’s claims. Be sure to look at targets from previous weeks—players might be available on your waiver wire.
Previous Weeks: Gregory Rousseau, Alex Highsmith, Dominique Robinson, Rasheem Green, Dre’mont Jones, Justin Jones, Deatrich Wise Jr, BJ Hill, Shy Tuttle, Kayvon Thibodeaux, Zach Allen, Jihad Ward, Dexter Lawrence, Dorance Armstrong, Derek Brown, Sebastian Joseph-Day, Jarran Reed, Grover Street, Denico Autry, Darrell Taylor, Samuel Williams, Javon Hargrave, Boye Mafe, Jay Tufele, Jerry Hughes, A’Shawn Robinson, Vita Vea, Julian Okwara, Calais Campbell, Myjai Sanders, John Cominsky, Carl Granderson, Zach Sieler
Ed Oliver, Buffalo Bills
Ed Oliver is rounding into form after an ankle injury cost him 3 weeks at the beginning of the season. Over the last 3 weeks, Oliver has led all DL in snaps for the Buffalo Bills. Oliver is also a top 10 in stats over that span as well, racking up 13 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble. With the possibility that Von Miller will miss some time, the Bills may lean a little more on Oliver in the coming weeks.
Josh Sweat, Philadelphia Eagles
Josh Sweat is the model of consistency. He won’t leave you with a goose egg, which is critical as you head into the playoffs. Sweat paces the Philly DEs each week in snaps and has put up decent tackle and sack numbers over the past few weeks. For leagues that reward QB hits, Sweat is even more valuable, especially when you consider his next three matchups against the Titans, Giants, and Bears (oh my).
