Injuries and Waiver Wire week 13 2022




Jimmy Garoppolo (Foot) - Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot and is out for the season.

Lamar Jackson (Knee) - Lamar Jackson suffered a knee injury and is considered week-to-week, according to sources.

Matthew Stafford (Spinal Cord) - Stafford has a spinal cord contusion and has been placed on injured reserve.

Tua Tagovailoa (Ankle) - Tagovailoa suffered a minor ankle injury but is not expected to miss time.



Kenneth Walker III (Foot) - Kenneth Walker suffered a strain on the inside of his foot and could not return to the game. He has not been ruled out for week 14 as of this writing.





David Bell (Hand) - Bell suffered a hand injury and is "day-to-day."

Treylon Burks (Concussion) - Treylon Burks suffered a concussion and will have to pass through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Courtland Sutton (Hamstring) - Sutton could not finish the game after suffering a hamstring injury.

WEEK 14 Waiver Wire



Mike White (NYJ) - Since taking over for the Jets, Mike White has scored more than 17 fantasy points in each game. He gets a tough matchup against the Bills next week but follows that up with a great matchup against the Lions. White might not be the long-term answer for the Jets, but he's been better than Zach Wilson, from a fantasy perspective.

Tyler Huntley (BAL)
Should be picked up by Jackson managers to cover for either a short-term or longer-term absence if need be. Huntley has proven to be an effective replacement for the Ravens and effective enough for fantasy purposes,



Brock Purdy (SF)
The 2022 NFL Draft's "Mr. Irrelevant" who started this season as San Francisco's scout-team QB, replaced Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Miami. Purdy went on to complete 25 of 37 passes for 210 yards, two TDs and one pick in the win. Prior to Sunday, he had appeared in three games as a rookie, completing 4 of 9 passes for 66 yards and an interception in a blowout loss to the Chiefs in Week 7. Fantasy managers in a bind at the position (remember, we have six teams on bye this week) could look at potent Niners' offense loaded with talent at all the other skill positions as reasons for optimism.




James Cook (BUF) - Quietly, Cook has been getting more involved in the Bills offense. Specifically last week, Cook tallied 64 rushing yards and 41 receiving yards, totaling 16.50 fantasy points. He's still behind Singletary but is one of the top handcuffs at this point in the season.

Zonovan Knight (NYJ) - Bam Knight was a bit of a confusing situation to uncover this past week. Week 12 was his first time being active all year, and he tallied 69 rushing yards and 34 receiving yards, for 16 fantasy points. With Michael Carter questionable all week, and the unknown of James Robinson, folks were weary on going back to the well in week 13. Well, Knight rushed for 90 yards and even added 28 receiving yards to his total. If you're looking to roll with the hot-hand, Knight is that guy right now.

Jordan Mason (SF) Mason appears to have the Elijah Mitchell role behind Christian McCaffrey locked up. Mason had eight carries for 51 yards against the Dolphins while fellow rookie Tyrion Davis-Price went without a touch. It's obviously not a front-line role, but it is a role and McCaffrey isn't known for his durability.

Also Consider:

Alexander Mattison (MIN)

DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer, Tony Jones Jr. (SEA)








Jameson Williams (DET) - The first-round rookie pick was activated off Injured Reserve this week and played in a limited fashion. Expect his snap count to increase over the next few games. The Lions are excited about Williams' potential, as he was one of the first receivers taken in the 2022 NFL draft.

Nico Collins (HOU) - Collins has been one of my favorite young receivers in the NFL. He's a former third-round pick from Michigan. The Texans' former top receiver, Brandin Cooks was inactive this week, and Collins came through with three catches for 35 yards and a TD. He's been a low-end FLEX option this season.

Donovan Peoples-Jones (CLE) - In his first game with DeShaun Watson back, Peoples-Jones tallied three catches for 44 yards, along with a return TD. Hopefully, he will have more upside with a better QB at the helm.

Also Consider:

Michael Gallup (DAL)

Isaiah McKenzie

Jahan Dotson, D.J. Chark




Greg Dulcich (DEN) - Dulcich regained some momentum this week, catching six passes for 85 yards on Sunday. Teammate Courtland Sutton suffered an injury this week, so perhaps more volume will come Dulcich's way.

Chigoziem Okonkwo (TEN)
Okonkwo recorded a career high in receptions and yards in a blowout loss to the Eagles, but the majority of his production came before garbage time. He caught a deep pass down the middle of the field in the second quarter, and he then shed a defender and turned upfield for a 41-yard gain. Though Austin Hooper is still the team's primary tight end, Okonkwo now has one reception of 40 or more yards in three of his last five games. He's also seen a 20 percent-plus target share in three of his last six games.
