Due to injuries, there are several more receivers to list on this week's Week 13 Waiver Wire Wide Receivers article. A Lion who had been out with a broken bone roared back in a big way against the Buccaneers.
Also make sure to read:
Nate Burleson - Lions (Owned Percentage – ESPN 3.4%/Yahoo 23%)
Continuing with the notion that teams are going to throw previously injured players back in the fold as soon as their first week back, Burleson played a majority of the snaps against the Buccaneers and did plenty of damage. With most of the defensive attention going towards Megatron, Burleson caught 7 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown. Seeing 10 targets in his first game back since Week 3, Burleson is going to continue to be a WR3 going forward for the simple fact that defenses can't take into account guys like Reggie Bush, Burleson and Megatron all at the same time. If he's there, pick Burleson up and play him against the Packers as a WR3.
Rod Streater - Raiders (Owned Percentage – ESPN 6.1%/Yahoo 14%)
Since Matt McGloin took over as the starting quarterback, Streater has quietly climbed in the rankings as a possible, albeit, low WR3. Against one of the better secondaries in the Titans, Streater caught 5 passes for 93 yards. A lot of this also has to do with the inactivity of Denarius Moore, but Streater could still be worth a look for depth purposes. He's now tallied 11 catches in the last 2 games. He could be a surprise against the Cowboys this week.
Michael Crabtree - 49ers (Owned Percentage – ESPN 11.8%/Yahoo 29%)
There was a small chance Crabtree would play in Week 12, but Week 13 is looking more likely. It's no surprise owners have dumped him in a majority of leagues considering an Achilles injury is one of the worst injuries to come back from, especially if you're a receiver. If you have room, pick him up. There is a good chance you might not even be able to use him, but at least you'll have him if he can come back. Unlike other players who have come back in a big way after weeks of sitting, Crabtree's injury could have a huge impact on the rest of his season. But hey, you just never know. I've seen crazier things happen in the NFL before.
