The fantasy football exemption cable can often make or break your season. Making the right decision about which players to add and remove is crucial, therefore, we have a detailed list of possible exemption aggregates for week 13.
Remember, we issue a broad network every week on our resignation board. Next, you'll see recommendations for shallow, regular and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know the trends in your league. Regardless of the size of your league, it is suggested that you work on the list and prioritize the best players in your exemption claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Lamar Jackson, BAL (25-50%) – We're still not sure if Jackson will keep the job when Joe Flacco is completely healthy, but Jackson is able to put QB1 numbers if he remains under center.
Jameis Winston, TB (25-50%) – Winston could lose his job at any time, but last week proved that he can accumulate fantasy points in the Bucs' offense.
Gus Edwards, BAL (50-100%) – Edwards scored his second consecutive 100-yard game and now seems locked as the Ravens' leader. He is in conversation RB2 in fantasy.
Josh Adams, PHI (50-100%) – The Eagles finally came to their senses and gave the ball to Adams in Week 12. He expects a healthy work load to continue moving forward.
Austin Ekeler, LAC (25-50%) – With Melvin Gordon hit, Ekeler will be the outstanding Chargers at least during Week 13 and maybe more.
The wide receiver
Josh Reynolds, LAR (50-100%) – Still available in 66% of the leagues and is ready for a role of all enemies in a powerful offensive in the future.
Mike Williams, LAC (20-40%) – With Tyrell Williams beaten, Mike Williams could see an increase in workload.
John Brown, BAL (20-40%) – Sure, he only caught a ball last week, but Brown saw eight healthy targets.
Cameron Brate, TB (25-50%) – If available, Brate is the essential complement of this week.
Regular leagues (12 teams)
Baker Mayfield, CLV (15-30%) – The new training regime is playing with Mayfield's strengths. He has thrown seven touchdowns in the last two games.
Josh Allen, BUF (5-10%) – Allen was a surprise top-10 fantasy game this past week. It offers advantages with its legs, but it also comes with a lot of volatility.
Theo Riddick, DET (10-20%) – Detroit is losing the receivers to the left and to the right, so Riddick should continue to see the volume as a receiver.
Malcolm Brown, LAR (10-20%) – If anything happened to Todd Gurley, Brown would be an instant RB1.
Spencer Ware, KC (10-20%) – If something happened to Kareem Hunt, Ware would be an instant RB1.
Rod Smith, DAL (10-20%) – If something happened to Ezekiel Elliott, Smith would not be an instant RB1, but it would be an RB2 with an advantage.
Jaylen Samuels, PIT (7-15%) – Samuels is another first-class wives who would slip to a favorable role if James Conner were injured.
T.J. Yeldon, JAX (5-10%) – With Leonard Fournette suspended in Week 13, Yeldon is the preferred fantasy fill in the Jacksonville garden.
Carlos Hyde, CLV (5-10%) – We hope that Hyde leads the Jags with Leonard Fournette out of the game, but T.J Yeldon is the favorite fantasy game.
Rex Burkhead, NE (5-10%) – Be careful not to overvalue Burkhead, as his role may be somewhat limited in the backfield of the Patriots with Sony Michel and James White solidified in their roles.
LeGarrette Blount, DET (5-10%) – Blount could be in a leading role this week again, with Kerryon Johnson still hit.
The wide receiver
Chris Godwin, TB (15-30%) – Godwin could finally take over all the duties if DeSean Jackson's injury wasted his time.
Adam Humphries, TB (15-30%) – Humphries does not come with a lot of advantages, but he has scored four times in the last month.
David Moore, MAR (10-20%) – Moore has emerged as a solid red zone option with advantages for the Seahawks.
Curtis Samuel, CAR (10-20%) – Your role continues to expand for the panthers. Samuel's versatility is attractive for fantasy purposes.
Josh Doctson, was (7-15%) – He saw his first two-digit goal game of the season last week, catching six balls for 66 yards.
Donte Moncrief, JAX (3-5%) – It is difficult to love anything in the air play of the Jaguars, but Moncrief offers advantages if you are desperate for the help of an open receiver.
Antonio Callaway, CLV (3-5%) – It's a great play waiting to happen, but Callaway also comes with a lot of volatility.
Chris Herndon, NYJ (10-20%) – Herndon posted the best seven sacks of his career in Week 12.
David Njoku, CLV (10-20%) – Njoku has been on a roll this season, but last week he showed off his fantasy with an impressive touchdown.
Jonnu Smith, TEN (10-20%) – It took a while, but Smith seems to hit his stride as a replacement for Delanie Walker.
Deep leagues (more than 14 teams)
Colt McCoy, was (1%) – Not at stake in most leagues, but McCoy should own the 2QB leagues.
Jeff Driskel, CIN (1%) – With Andy Dalton on the disabled list, Driskel will take over the homework for the Bengals in the final stretch. It's only at stake in 2QB leagues.
Jordan Wilkins, IND (1-3%) – Wilkins is not a first-class wives, but it's a deeper name to hide in case something happens to Marlon Mack.
Wayne Gallman, NYG (1-3%) – Not the same caliber of player as Saquon Barkley, but Gallman would be in the conversation of RB2 if Barkley failed.
Justin Jackson, LAC (1%) – Jackson is a deep name that should be known after some impressive races last week.
The wide receiver
Bruce Ellington, DET (1-3%) – With Marvin Jones on injured reserve, Ellington should see a lot of work in the future.
Dante Pettis, SF (1%) – The rookie is finally healthy and found the final zone last week.
Trey Quinn, was (1%) – Quinn has accumulated nine sacks and one score in the last two weeks.
C.J. Uzomah, CIN (1-3%) – Uzomah saw 12 massive targets last week.
DST streamers for week 13
Packers of Green Bay (1%) – Sure, the Packers' defense just put a goose fantasy egg, but this duel is too juicy to let it go. Arizona's catastrophic offense is the second fantasy matchup for defenses and has allowed double-digit fantasy points seven times this season. That's tied for the league lead.
Seattle Seahawks (1%) – The days have passed when Seattle was an elite fantasy defense, but they may be able to regain some of that glory against the 49ers this week. San Francisco has just delivered four sacks and two interceptions to the humble defense of the Bucs last week.
Miami Dolphins (1%) – This is not a game for the faint of heart, but the Dolphins shout backwards against the fantasy duel No. 1 for defenses. Buffalo seemed to straighten the boat last week with Josh Allen in the center, but we've also seen the rookie make many mistakes in his short tenure at the center.
