Welcome to the Pawn Shop: Week 13

Well folks stock up, and prepare for the sprint to the finish. In most league we have 2 weeks left until the Fantasy Play Offs begin, and that’s just the beginning of why we play. “Playoffs, we’re talking about Playoffs” I say in best Jim Mora voice, these are the key moves that can win you championship games. Every year we look back and see the guys added from week 12 and on that are on a majority of championship rosters. So don’t miss your chance to add some difference makers from the wire, whether it’s a flex with more upside for when you get to the championship, or you just need a tight end to put this streaming to end.

So let’s see what the Pawn shop has laying around to bolster your squad.

Charles Sims
While Sims cannot be activated off the IR until week 13, He would have 2 matchups vs. the Saints lackluster run defence. In these times of RB needs on most teams this fantasy season, Sims is worthy of a stash. He has the potential to be a difference maker based on his prowess in the passing games as well as his abilities in the rushing game. While Sims may not see the field again this season as he has already received the designation it’s likely he will get activated as early as possible so don’t miss your chance to get him on your team. Sims is only 8.7% owned and with the hype already gaining steam that will change Wednesday morning.

Tyreek Hill
Hill Is one of those guys with big play potential, and with Maclin missing time the Chiefs have found ways to keep him involved. Even as a big play guy, Hill has seemingly proven he can be that he also has a safe floor. Look for Hill to continue with the steady games even if Maclin finds his way back on to the field. Hill gets both receptions and rush attempts and with his game breaking speed he makes the most of every chance he gets. Tyreek is 26.6% owned and is shining brightly on the waiver wire on most leagues.

Malcom Mitchell
Malcom in the middle of the patriots passing game, with Gronk banged up and the Pats yet again cruising to victory every week. Mitchell has seemingly blown by everyone except for Edelman in the Pats WR corp. Coming off two 15+ point games, and 3 TD’s over the past 2 games, and continued praise from the Pats signal caller, Mitchell will continue to see a decent target share in a powerful offence. Malcom Mitchell is only 2.7% owned and is worthy of a roster spot for your playoff run.

Taylor Gabriel
With 2 TD’s in week 12, Gabriel showed why the falcons monitored his availability while he was with the Browns. There was slight concern heading into week 12, with Tevin Coleman returning to the mix but that was quickly put to bed following his performance. While Gabriel will still have those bust weeks, his ability to have the huge weeks is why he’s worthy of rostering. With 4 straight games of 14.1 points or more his upside far outweighs any negatives as the Falcons fight for a spot in the playoffs. Taylor Gabriel is only 3.6% owned and can give you that big performance to upset a higher seed on your playoff run.

Derrick Henry
Finally, he seemingly got the constant carries, but is this for real, will this continue? Whether or not you own Demarco Murray, Henry is a RB that is healthy in an offence that is rolling. There is a good chance that is he is on the wire in your league he will sneak through the claims as the Titans are on a bye this week. So if you are lucky enough to have your playoff spot clinched, add him now and don’t look back. Derrick Henry is 46.4% owned and is primed to help for a playoff run.

Matt Asiata
I know who wants a part of the Vikings Offence at all right? With touchdowns in three straight, Asiata can help out those RB needy of someone looking for a decent flex option. Asiata has shown why he wasn’t a hot name with his TD dependencies, but also shown why he is the back to own in that brutal backfield since he continues to get the goal line work……. If there is any. All jokes aside, Asiata has TD’s in his last 3 games and only 1 game with less than 8 points, in his last 8 games.  Asiata is 43.1% owned and will provide a safe floor to any RB needy team.
