The Chiefs beat the Bills 30-22. "

The fantasy football schedule is into Week 13 and some sleepers and waiver options include David Johnson, Spencer Ware, Shaun Draughn, Zach Miller, Thomas Rawls, Buck Allen, Kamar Aiken, James White, DeVante Parker, Brandon Bolden and Matt Jones for fantasy owners. Rawls, Ware and Johnson are getting the chance to step up while players deal with injuries, while Miller has been a solid option the past two weeks for the Bears.

The fantasy schedule is heading towards the playoffs and team owners can't afford to miss out on any production in Week 13 and some of these players could perform big this weekend. Charcandrick West has been dealing with an injury for the Chiefs and that gives Ware another chance to start. Ware is listed on the injury report as well, but he is expected to play on Sunday. Rawls has stepped in well for Marshawn Lynch and is going to start again, while Buck Allen has taken over as the starter with Justin Forsett out.

Matt Jones has been getting touches for the Redskins over Alfred Morris and could be worth starting, while DeVante Parker finally made an impact for the Dolphins last week. Rishard Matthews is dealing with a rib injury and that could give Parker the chance to step up again. Zach Miller has had two solid games for the Bears and he could be an option if Martellus Bennett is out again. Owners should keep an eye on the injury report heading into Sunday before making a final decision on Miller.

David Johnson is a good option for fantasy owners, as the Cardinals are dealing with injuries at running back heading into Week 13. Chris Johnson is out with a fractured tibia and will likely miss the rest of the year, while Andre Ellington is also banged up with a toe issue. Johnson is expected to get the bulk of the carries this week against the Rams and he could be a breakout option. Johnson had a touchdown last week and rushed for 21 yards against the 49ers and he could have a full load on Sunday.

Ware had a strong game last week with over 100 total yards and a touchdown for the Chiefs and he is worth riding until he slows down for Kansas City. Ware had 101 yards and two touchdowns against the Chargers the previous week and even if West can play, he likely will be limited. Ware now has four touchdowns and 234 yards this season in six games.

Carlos Hyde has continued to deal with a foot injury and that could give Shaun Draughn the chance to start again for the 49ers. Brandon Bolden and James White have been getting increased work with Dion Lewis out and they could be solid options behind LeGarrette Blount for the Patriots. The Eagles defense has been hit hard the past two weeks and the Pats could put up some numbers this week. Allen and Jones are also solid options at RB this week and fantasy owners should keep an eye on Kamar Aiken from the Ravens, as he has stepped into the number one role with all the injuries the team has been dealing with.
