We’re entering the final week of the fantasy regular season. Many are locked into the playoffs already, while others will be fighting for spots in Week 13.

The Cardinals and Panthers are on a bye week, meaning notable players such as DeAndre Hopkins, Kyler Murray, James Conner, D.J. Moore and D’Onta Foreman will be on benches this week.

Najee Harris left Monday night’s game against the Colts with an abdominal injury, paving the way for Benny Snell Jr. to rack up 13 touches, 66 yards and a rushing touchdown in the Steelers’ 24-17 win. Keep an eye on Harris this week and pick up Snell as insurance just in case Harris is ruled out.

Deshaun Watson will make his highly anticipated season debut for the Browns against his former team in Houston. If you’ve been stashing him, you’ve been waiting for this moment for quite some time.

If you’re already out of the playoff race, set your lineup any way and attempt to knock off the top dogs in your league. We love a good upset, right?

Here are the top pickups for Week 13.

Mike White, QB, Jets (FAAB $10)

Week 13 matchup: at Vikings

Head coach Robert Saleh was reluctant to name White as the full-time starter following the Jets’ 31-10 win over the Bears last Sunday. Said Saleh: “It's a week-to-week deal. The full intent is to get Zach (Wilson) ready to play football again. I'll make that decision when I'm ready. While we're going through this process, it's Mike White's opportunity to take advantage of every last play he gets.”

Well Coach, White took advantage of his opportunity by completing 22 of 28 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns, becoming just the second quarterback in league history (Kurt Warner, 1999) to record a 75% completion percentage, 300 passing yards and three touchdowns in one game within his first four career starts. It was by far better than any game Wilson has had this year.

White may not be Patrick Mahomes, but he can sling the rock a bit and opens up a New York offense that’s been run-heavy throughout the season. In Week 13, the Jets face a Minnesota defense that’s allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to QBs, so another big day could be in store for White.

If you need a QB, look to add White unless Trevor Lawrence or Jared Goff are available. White is widely up for grabs in Yahoo and ESPN leagues.

Foster Moreau, TE, Raiders (FAAB $5-$10)

Week 13 matchup: vs. Chargers

Moreau might not be a fantasy stud, but he has scored touchdowns with double-digit fantasy points in two of the last three weeks.

In the Raiders’ thrilling overtime win against the Seahawks last Sunday, Moreau saw seven targets (tied for second with Josh Jacobs), tallying three receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown. He hasn’t topped more than 44 receiving yards in a game this season, but Derek Carr is certainly looking for Moreau in key moments including ever-so-important red-zone trips.

The backup tight end-turned-starter is worth an add in deeper leagues where the position is extremely scarce this late into the season. Besides, the Raiders' next opponent is the Chargers, who give up the third-most receiving yards to TEs.

Moreau is available in 60% of Yahoo leagues and in 65% of ESPN leagues.

JaMycal Hasty, RB, Jaguars (FAAB $10)

Week 13 matchup: at Lions

Travis Etienne exited Sunday’s game against the Ravens early in the first quarter with a sprained foot and never returned. Hasty took over lead-back duties and made the most of the opportunity, drawing 17 touches (five catches) for 95 yards and a touchdown.

The Jaguars claimed former Rams running back Darrell Henderson last week. If Etienne is sidelined, Henderson will likely suit up and draw some carries against a dismal Detroit defense that allows 154.6 rushing yards per game. However, Hasty should get the start and most of the touches, including ones in the passing game.

Add Hasty just in case and monitor Etienne’s status his week. Hasty is up for grabs in nearly all Yahoo and ESPN leagues.
