Week 13 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football by Utter-Fantasy Football Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles
Week 13 of the NFL season the last two teams off on a “Bye”. The last two are Tennessee and Cleveland. We had a couple injuries in Week 12, so there are a few players needed around the league to step for NFL teams ( and for fantasy football owners on the waiver wire.) The following are your Utter-Fantasy Week 13 Waiver Wire recommendations.
Week 13 Byes: Cleveland and Tennessee.
