If you have a waiver wire that awards on Tuesday or Wednesday only, your commissioner can move it back to later in the week using the Commissioner->Manage League menu option, then selecting the "Free Agents" option in the "Rosters" section of that page. Remember that, if you have a unrestricted free agent period, you must also move that back to at least 4 hours after your waiver wire deadline. Finally, do not forget to move your deadlines back once they have passed!

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) has been limited in practice this week. However, he should play and be started in fantasy lineups in Week 13 against the New York Giants after he made his return to the field in Week 12. Carson has been one of the NFL's best running backs this season when he's been healthy. He is eighth in the NFL in fantasy points per game (17) and he's just 0.2 points behind the running back in seventh place. In Week 12, Carson saw a number of his touches taken by teammate Carlos Hyde(toe), but Hyde has already been ruled out for this week's game. As long as Carson is active, he should be locked into your lineups and will have RB1 upside against the Giants with a larger workload coming his way.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson II (knee) is questionable for Week 13 against the Lions after not appearing on the injury report until Friday. Quarterback Nick Foles (hip) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (Achilles, hamstring) are also questionable. Robinson was limited in practice on Friday, so he appears to be on the right track to play. Despite playing in a bad Bears offense, he has been a top-15 fantasy wideout in PPR leagues and has an excellent matchup against Detroit on Sunday. The Lions are thin in the secondary and might be without top cornerback Desmond Trufant. They also allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game to pass-catchers. A-Rob has 71 catches for 829 yards and five touchdowns this year and should remain a low-end WR1 in all fantasy lineups. Foles is expected to play, but he'll back up Mitchell Trubisky.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst (ankle) is set for a Week 13 rematch with the Saints. Hurst had a 'DNP' on Thursday, though that was likely maintenance by the team, considering he returned to practice in a limited fashion on Friday. Hurst was held without a catch in his first meeting with the Saints this year, though the offense looked out of sorts without Julio Jones (hamstring). The former Raven is coming off an eight-target game and should benefit from the presence of Jones if the All-Pro wideout is active. Look at Hurst as a low-end TE1 considering that the Saints' defense has been stingy against tight ends lately.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) and running back Todd Gurley II (knee) are both questionable for Sunday's contest against New Orleans. Both players were limited Friday after sitting out on Thursday, giving them a good chance to suit up. It's also worth noting that both Jones and Gurley weren't able to practice last Friday before ultimately being ruled out, meaning there's some optimism this time. Jones makes this offense go, so he would easily slot in as a must-start WR1 if active. Gurley, on the other hand, faces a stout Saints' defensive line, making him a low-end RB2 at best.
Miami Dolphins running backs Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) are doubtful to play in Week 13 against the Bengals. Head coach Brian Flores said that running back Myles Gaskin (knee) could come off Injured Reserve to play on Sunday. Matt Breida is also out after being placed on the COVID-19 list, so Patrick Laird is the only truly healthy running back on the roster. If Gaskin doesn't return, the team could give receivers Malcolm Perry and Lynn Bowden Jr. some direct snaps or handoffs. Ahmed is in line to miss his second straight game. All signs are pointing toward Gaskin making his return. The Bengals Defense has allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to RBs, but Gaskin would be a little more volatile as an RB2 if he's eased back into the fold.
Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor will make his return to the lineup this week against the Texans after missing last week's game due to COVID-19. Taylor has a favorable matchup against a terrible Texans run defense. They have surrendered the second-most rushing yards per game and a league-worst 4.9 yards per carry. Taylor saw a solid workload in his last performance with 22 carries and four catches, playing in 55 percent of the team's snaps. He is a bit risky due to uncertainty in the amount of touches he will receive, but he should be a good RB2 option if he sees ample carries.
The Baltimore Ravens activated rookie running back J.K. Dobbins, linebacker Pernell McPhee and centers Patrick Mekari and Matt Skura from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday while placing quarterback Robert Griffin III (hamstring) on Injured Reserve in a corresponding move. Cornerback Anthony Averett and wide receiver Chris Moore were also activated from IR. Dobbins missed Week 12 but should return as the lead back in Week 13 against the Cowboys on Tuesday and will be an upside RB2 for fantasy managers hoping to get into the fantasy playoffs. Dallas is also allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to RBs. Griffin was forgettable on Wednesday against Pittsburgh and will now miss at least the next three games. If Lamar Jackson doesn't get cleared from the COVID-19 protocols this weekend, Trace McSorley would start under center against the Cowboys.
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (foot) and wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) are both good to go for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Both players were full participants in Friday's practice after the Saints held them back on Wednesday and Thursday for maintenance reasons. Kamara had previously hauled in at least five receptions in eight of 11 contests this year, though the presence of Taysom Hill at quarterback has limited his upside. He should be looked at as a low-end RB1. While dominating the target share since Hill took over, Thomas should still be downgraded into the WR2 ranks due to the Saints' newfound, run-first approach.
Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores didn't reveal who the starting quarterback would be on Friday for Week 13 against the Bengals, and rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) is officially listed as questionable after being limited in practice. The Dolphins will likely make a final decision on the starting job on Sunday morning. However, Tagovailoa didn't seem confident in his throwing thumb earlier this week after missing the Week 12 contest. Miami would like the rookie to play in a great matchup against Cincinnati to get his confidence back up after being benched in the Week 11 loss to the Broncos, but they won't risk his health in order to do so. If he returns to action, he'll be a low-end QB2 with some upside, while veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick would be in consideration as a QB2 streamer if he makes his second straight start.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers has a favorable against the Texans in Week 13. The Texans have been bad against the pass all season, ranking 28th against opposing quarterbacks. They have allowed a passer rating of 105.4, which is second-worst in the league. Quarterbacks have thrown 20 touchdowns to just three interceptions against the Texans Defense. Rivers has played fairly well over the last three games with six touchdowns and just two interceptions. He has played well against the Texans throughout his career, averaging over three touchdowns per game in five contests. River should be able to put up a solid performance this week but finds himself in the QB2 conversation.
The Miami Dolphins placed running back Matt Breida on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. It's unclear if Breida tested positive for the virus or was just deemed a high-risk close contact to another individual who did. Either way, he'll be unavailable for Week 13's contest against the Bengals. It likely didn't matter for fantasy purposes, as one of Salvon Ahmed or Myles Gaskin, and potentially both, should return for this Sunday's game against Cincinnati. Even with the Dolphins cutting Jordan Howard earlier this year, Breida hasn't done much in his first season in Miami, carrying the ball 47 times for 168 yards and no touchdowns in nine games. If Gaskins returns to lead the backfield this weekend, he'll return to being an upside RB2 play against the Bengals.
Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said that running back Josh Jacobs (ankle), safety Johnathan Abram (knee) and defensive end Clelin Ferrell have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Jets. It's a shame for those that roster Jacobs, as he was in line for a nice bounce-back game against the winless Jets after suffering an ankle injury last week and disappointing. If you roster Jacobs or are in need of running back help this weekend, add Devontae Booker off the waiver wire. The 28-year-old will split the backfield work with Jalen Richard on Sunday, but he should see the majority of the touches against a New York defense that is extremely vulnerable at all levels. Booker will have RB2 upside with Jacobs sidelined.
Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus should not be on the fantasy radar for those streaming kickers in Week 13. The strong-legged kicker hasn't missed a kick since shanking an extra point in Week 7 against the Chiefs, but he also hasn't had more than two field-goal attempts in a single contest since back-to-back games in Weeks 4 and 6. He'll face Kansas City again on Sunday night after going 1-for-2 on extra points and nailing his only field-goal try in the 43-16 loss in Week 7. The 29-year-old has been among the most accurate kickers in the NFL (95.5 percent) this year, but he's just not being afforded enough opportunities in this mediocre offense. And the Denver offense won't be afforded the luxury of relying on field goals this weekend against the high-octane Chiefs offense.
The Denver Broncos Defense surprisingly ranks 10th in the NFL through 12 weeks of the 2020 season, but they just placed cornerback Bryce Callahan on Injured Reserve and have been extremely vulnerable on the ground in recent weeks. Going up against the No. 1 overall offense (first in passing, 19th rushing) and dynamic Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will certainly give them problems on Sunday night. Overall, Denver's D ranks 24th in fantasy points and they've allowed a league-high 158 rushing yards per game in the last five contests. They allowed a season-high 43 points to KC back in Week 7, although Mahomes only threw for a season-low 200 yards and one touchdown, but the game was played in the snow. Expect Mahomes and the Chiefs to put up points at will again in this game, making the Broncos defense one to avoid at all costs.
Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant carries the distinction of being the only player to catch a pass in the Week 12 blowout loss to the Saints. We'd be pretty surprised if Fant doesn't improve on that number in a Week 13 meeting with the division-rival Chiefs on Sunday night. Kansas City's defense has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends in the last five weeks. Fant caught only three passes for 38 yards against them in their first meeting, but that game was in the snow and he was battling an ankle injury. The 23-year-old hasn't found the end zone since Week 2, but he should see a safe target floor in a game in which the Broncos will likely have to throw much more than they'd like to. At such a shallow position in fantasy, Fant should serve as at least a viable low-end TE1 in Week 13.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick and the entire offense was non-existent in the Week 12 blowout loss to the Saints with practice-squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton under center. Patrick and Denver's passing game will rebound against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 13 with quarterback Drew Lock back, but how much? The 27-year-old has three 100-yard games this year and has been the Broncos most consistent pass-catcher, but the Chiefs have allowed only nine wideouts to top 50 yards receiving through 12 weeks. Just because the Broncos will likely be playing catch-up in this ballgame doesn't mean that Patrick will thrive. He had only three grabs for 44 yards in the Week 7 contest against the Chiefs. Consider him a low-ceiling WR4/flex this weekend.
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver K.J. Hamler will be a nice weapon out of the slot for the Broncos in the future, but he's just not seeing enough consistent targets in his rookie season to be a realistic receiver to roster in single-year formats. Hamler had 26 targets in a three-game span from Weeks 9-11, but he wasn't targeted at all in Denver's Week 12 disaster against the Saints when the entire team's quarterback room was inactive due to COVID-19. He should bounce back this Sunday night against the Chiefs, but fantasy managers shouldn't be looking at him as a starting option against a KC defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing pass-catchers this year. Hamler had only two catches on three targets for a paltry 24 yards in the team's first meeting with their division rivals back in Week 7.
Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III was a disappointment yet again in Week 12 against the Saints, logging 12 carries for only 31 yards and not catching a pass for the third straight game. Gordon's fantasy value in Week 13 against the division-rival Chiefs will depend on whether Phillip Lindsay (knee) is active. He has seen 20-plus touches in two of the three games that Lindsay has missed this year, so Gordon would have RB2 upside this Sunday night if Lindsay doesn't suit up. Kansas City is allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to RBs in 2020, including 59 total receptions, so Gordon should be involved plenty. If Lindsay is active, though, Gordon will go back to being more of a high-end RB3/flex while splitting the backfield work almost evenly. The 27-year-old had 17 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 snow game against the Chiefs.
The New York Giants are listing quarterback Daniel Jones (hamstring) as doubtful to face the Seahawks in Week 13. Jones hasn't practiced all week and was unlikely to play in this one after tweaking his hammy in the Week 12 win over the Bengals. The good news is that it's a minor injury that should allow the 23-year-old to return in Week 14 against the Cardinals, barring any setbacks. With Jones sidelined this weekend, backup Colt McCoy will get the starting nod after finishing off the game last Sunday. The 34-year-old started one game for Washington in 2019 and was 6-for-10 for 31 yards in relief of Jones against Cincinnati. The Seattle defense is vulnerable, but McCoy will be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues. Downgrade all of New York's pass-catchers with Jones out.
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock was inactive in the Week 12 blowout loss to the Saints after being deemed a high-risk close contact of Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for COVID-19. But he was activated on Wednesday and has returned to practice, signaling that he'll be back under center against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 13. The Broncos will likely be trailing at some point in this game by multiple scores, which should allow Lock to air it out, but he is still on a streak of six straight games with an interception. The first meeting against KC in Week 7 was in the snow, with Lock going for 254 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Just because the Broncos might have to throw often on Sunday won't make Lock any more attractive as a low-end, inaccurate QB2 for fantasy managers.
