It’s finally here! Bye weeks are officially over and the fantasy football playoffs are about to begin. The weak teams are officially out of contention and all that’s left are the true juggernauts. If you want your roster to match up against the best of the best, you’ll need to monitor to the waiver wire for the best weekly adds. If you need wide receiver help, DJ Moore and Courtland Sutton are just two of the top wide receiver waiver claims heading into Week 13.
Fantasy Football: DJ Moore, Courtland Sutton Highlight Week 13 Wide Receiver Waiver Claims
Carolina Panthers wide receiver DJ Moore is the real deal and should be the top option in Carolina’s passing game moving forward. With Devin Funchess sidelined, Moore stepped up and proved he can handle being the offensive focal point. The first-round rookie finished his night with an impressive eight receptions for 91 yards. This game came on the heels of a massive seven-catch, 157-yard performance one week earlier against the Detroit Lions.
Moore faces off against a struggling San Francisco 49ers defense in Week 13. The 49ers have struggled to stop just about everyone, especially at the wide receiver position. Entering Week 12, the unit surrendered an average of 25.7 points per game to the wide receiver position. Moore should feast against this underwhelming secondary and put up his third consecutive big game. Moore is owned in just 43.1% of NFL.com fantasy leagues. Make sure to grab him if he’s still out there on your waiver wire.
Courtland Sutton hasn’t exactly been what fantasy owners were hoping for since the Demaryius Thomas trade. Over the past three games, Sutton has just seven receptions for 149 yards. While this production is underwhelming, Sutton is likely to put up fantastic numbers in Week 13.
Sutton and the Denver Broncos face off against possibly the worst defense in the National Football League. The Cincinnati Bengals defense has been a hot mess for a few months now, and opposing offenses have been scoring at will. Sutton should put up a good amount of yardage on this subpar unit and should be a smart flex play in a deeper league. He’s owned in just 25.7% of NFL.com fantasy leagues, so you should be able to pick him up and start him next week.
There’s a somewhat decent chance that D.J. Moore and Courtland Sutton are already rostered in your league. If that’s the case, then make a claim for somebody like New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. Enunwa is owned in just 0.2% of NFL.com leagues, so he should be easy to acquire. The former sixth-round pick is finally healthy and is a safe, high-floor play in deeper leagues.
Enunwa finished Week 12 with four receptions for 73 yards. While this production isn’t anything special, it’s serviceable if you need a conservative play. Enunwa makes a living by taking quick, easy passes and making the most of his yards after the catch. His production is highly sustainable and he should produce similar number against a Tennessee Titans defense which struggles against wide receivers.
