One aspect is true of Fantasy Football: Every year there are players that will not be drafted but will emerge off the waiver wire and become solid additions for a fantasy football team. Who are the latest players on the rise?
Toby Gerhart, Minnesota Vikings
After an injury to RB Adrian Peterson, Gerhart stepped in and had his best game as a pro. He had 22 carries for 76 yards with a touchdown and had two receptions for five yards.
In Week 13 the Vikings will play against the Buffalo Bills, who have struggled all year to stop the running game. Coming into play in Week 12, the Bills ranked last in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game (163.5) and 26th in rushing touchdowns allowed with 10.
Owned in three percent of ESPN leagues and 13 percent of CBS Sportsline leagues, with Peterson’s injury status unclear, Gerhart is a must grab and play for Week 13.
