As we head into Week 13, the list of likely available players in most leagues is getting thin… Rex Burkhead could be available in most all small and medium size leagues, and he could become a sneaky-awesome flex down the stretch. Same goes for Josh Gordon, who could either bust or be elite once again. He should have been rostered in almost all leagues months ago when we yelled to grab him, but for some reason he is still available in a grip of leagues. I don’t understand why, but my job is to continue to say ‘grab him’ until the data shows he’s rostered in most all leagues.
Samaje Perine is still looking like a strong flex play and should be grabbed if for whatever reason he’s still available in your league.
Of course, Kenny Stills is a must-add and a solid flex-like play the rest of the way, for some reason he is still available in a ton of leagues.
Jimmy Garoppolo could begin his rise to fantasy relevance this week, he should be grabbed in larger leagues, especially 2QB leagues.
Rod Smith has big upside, as does Charcandrick West, someone I’ve been saying to stash all season long. Kareem Hunt has looked awful lately, and West has always been awesome fantasy-wise when called upon. Who knows what could happen if West was asked to do more and did. KC isn’t looking good, they might be open to any and all opportunities to provide their team a spark (including turning to Patrick Mahommes, a prediction I made on last week’s radio show).
