NFL Week 13 FDx (Waiver) Wire Report

© Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The FDx Wire grasps the traditional waiver-wire report. However, we have added our FDx Score to illustrate how our proprietary algorithms feel about the player. The higher the number, the better that player will perform. Also, includes a projected point total for the week. Keep in mind, FDx Scores change throughout the day, everyday. Visit The Fantasy Doctors Analytics HERE for our Top Week 13 Projections. You will not see any adds to a player over 70% ownership in two leagues.

Case Keenum, QB MIN (50.66 FDx Score/14.16 Projected Points)
37% ownership in ESPN leagues
61% ownership in CBS leagues
47% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Case Keenum has been achieving solid numbers since taking over for Sam Bradford. In his four games he has not thrown for less than 280 yards, and has nine touchdowns in that stretch. His weapons are solid with Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs. Keep in mind that he does have a difficult two weeks ahead of him, but this could be the last week he is readily available in fantasy leagues.

Rex Burkhead RB, NE (51.71 FDx Score/4.66 Projected Points)
41.7% ownership in ESPN leagues
66% ownership in CBS leagues
51% ownership in Yahoo leagues
The Patriots may have a merry-go-round of running backs, but Rex Burkhead is a staple on that ride. Against the Dolphins, he carried the rock 15 touches for 53-yards, and scored twice, one being via air mail. Dion Lewis is a concern, he had two more carries and 112 more yards than Burkhead. However, don’t let this sway you. Burkhead should continue to be part of the larger story come next week against the Bills.

Jacquizz Rodgers, RB TB (25.64 FDx Score/0.67 Projected Points)
6% ownership in ESPN leagues
8% ownership in CBS leagues
14% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Rodgers took over where Doug Martin left off (concussion). He carried the ball eight times and finished with 31 yards and had one reception on two targets. The Buccaneers have the Packers defense next week so its favorable. A worthwhile pickup in case Martin stays inactive. Don’t worry about Barber, his stats were much more reflective of the opportunity than skill. Rodgers is the guy here.

Dontrelle Inman, WR CHI (69.84 FDx Score/7.16 Projected Points)
5.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
11% ownership in CBS leagues
10% ownership in Yahoo leagues
When you can find any starting receiver available in fantasy leagues you should at least give it a test run. Dontrelle Inman appears to be that guy. He was buried on the depth chart in San Diego but consistently made good on opportunities. Now, he is basically the lead dog in Chicago, and guess what? Inman is making good on his opportunities. In three straight weeks he is the leader of Bears in the receiving department. Taking top honors in receptions (4), targets (9), and yards (64). Still Mitchell Trubisky is going to be one of the last quarterbacks in attempts per week, so his ceiling is limited. Inman should be of good use of him during solid matchups.

Zay Jones, WR BUF (48.36 FDx Score/2.96 Projected Points)
10.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
11% ownership in CBS leagues
14% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Zay Jones has been garnering a lot of attention in the past few weeks by Tyrod Taylor and the brief stint by Nathan Peterman. In his last three games, Jones has caught 13 of 24 targets for 144-yards and two scores. He was used heavily last week against the Chiefs getting the most targets all season (10) but only came away with three receptions. However, Jones did score. Over the course of the season, he has been unreliable. His 48 percent catch rate is indicative of this. I do believe Jones will continue to get looks, but he needs to bring in more of those opportunities.
