As Week 13 begins, there are some players out with injury, which may leave your fantasy football rosters looking a little different and potentially weaker. While it’s hard to bench the fantasy studs you drafted, the option of streaming players off the waiver wire could bode well for your success in your fantasy football league. It is always a better decision to weigh your options and play the player with a much better matchup than start the same guy every week hoping for a breakout game.
Read on for three wide receiver fantasy football streamers for Week 13. With four teams on a bye this week (CLE, CAR, GB and TEN), there are plenty of wide receiver streaming options available under 50 percent ownership that could help push your team forward in the right direction. This bye week shouldn’t hurt your team too much aside from Davante Adams and other lowkey options but nonetheless, streamers are always there for consideration.
Players must be owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the Week 13 fantasy football wide receiver streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Week 13 Fantasy Football WR Streamers
Rashod Bateman at PIT (42.1%)
I probably sound like a broken record at this point banging the Rashod Bateman gavel every week, but he has serious potential to be a good fantasy wide receiver. Pittsburgh has been horrible against the pass this season, allowing 36.7 fantasy points per game (FPPG) to opposing wide receivers thus far. The Ravens had a tough game last week, unable to get anything going and Lamar Jackson having one of the worst games of his career. However, they should very much improve. Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews are clearly the top targets for Jackson in the passing game and other receivers have eaten into Bateman’s usage and snap count, but the upside is there due to his talent and previous target share.
Kadarius Toney at MIA (40.2%)
Kadarius Toney missed last week with an injury and will hopefully be back out there this week to face a miserable Miami secondary. The Dolphins surrender over 40 FPPG to opposing wide receivers this season despite having two of the top-paid corners in the league, and Toney could do some damage. Daniel Jones will be out this week, so Mike Glennon will get the start and Toney’s usage could go either way, with him getting more targets or less. He’s had two games of over 10 targets and has posted double-digit fantasy performances in three of his last six games played.

Kendrick Bourne at BUF (24.3%)
It is most certainly not a good idea to play wide receivers against the Bills because they are the best team in the league against them, surrendering only 25.6 FPPG. But, Tre’Davious White is out for the season with a torn ACL, which will severely hurt the Bills’ secondary strength. The next-up corners are nowhere near as good, and their star safety tandem likely won’t be guarding Kendrick Bourne. The Patriots have been on a roll lately and Bourne has stood out as one of Mac Jones’ favorite targets. It’s hard to trust receivers against this team and you really are banking on a big play or two to return solid fantasy value but the risk may be worth it as the Bills figure out their corner situation now.
