Week 13 is going to be crucial for NFL Fantasy Owners because most of the leagues this is the end of the regular season and playoff will begin. While I have clinched the playoffs two weeks back, some fantasy team owners need Week 13 to make it to the playoffs.
Start the Following QB Players for NFL Week 13
Colin Kaepernick has surprisingly delivered the fantasy points and on Week 12 he even scored 39.5 fantasy points. His ability to pass and rush gives him a lot of options to pile up the points. In their game against the Miami Dolphins, Colin completed 29 of 46 passes for a total of 296 yards, had three touchdowns, and added 113 rushing yards on 10 carries. He will go up against the Chicago Bears who ranks 16th in the NFL in production allowed to opposing quarterbacks and 22nd in rushing yards against QB.
Philip Rivers has been on a 4 week streak of multiple touchdown passes and had a stellar game against a tough Texans defense where he completed 22 of 30 passes for 242 yards. Rivers and the Chargers will be playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have given up 20 passing TDs this season, 9th worst in the NFL.
Rivers fantasy numbers keep on climbing starting at 22.7 on Week 9, 23.04 on Week 10, Week 11 was Bye, he came and scored 25.68 fantasy points in Week 12 in our league.
Andrew Luck is a solid QB and based on injury reports for NFL Week 13 he should be back in form and could score in the mid 20s for fantasy owners. He is still 99% owned and owners should be confident to start him.
Sit the Following QB Players for NFL Week 13
Cam Newton who was the MVP for 2015 season has been disappointing and have only been scoring in the mid 20s to 10s on weekly basis. Fantasy apps has been recommending him in the top 5s but he has been my disappointing pick. I have benched him in favor of Marcus Mariota and the only reason I am starting him this week is because Marcus Mariota is on bye and there are no better QBs in our waiver wire.
Andy Dalton is not going to play in Week 13 because of hamstring injury. While he played in Week 12 he just completed 54 percent of his passes, with just a single touchdown and 14 rushing yards. Andy scored a good high 20s for me in one game but for the last three games he has just been scoring in low 10s.
Start the Following RB Players for NFL Week 13
Mark Ingram has just scored 7.30 points in Week 10 and 9 points on Week 11, but last week he exploded for 31.20 points with 14 carries for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Ingram has had around 15 touches for the past six games and he will continue to explode in Week 13. Even if Mark Ingram goes against a tough Lions defense, we are trusting Mark Ingram to score productive fantasy points.
Thomas Rawls has just scored 3.8 points in Week 12 but the entire Seattle Seahawks has been disappointing. Expect the team to bounce back and Rawls to score a lot more points.
Sit the Following RB Players for NFL Week 13
Just like Cam Newton, Todd Gurley has been a huge disappointment this season. I think he was even drafted in the first or second round in our fantasy league but he just managed to give in the low 10s for fantasy owners.
Keep Todd Gurley on the bench.
Start the Following WR Players for NFL Week 13
Larry Fitzgerald has been a solid option for the Arizona Cardinals and while he hasn’t had a touchdown since Week 5, expect the Cardinals to keep on passing the ball to Larry. He caught all four of his targets for 53 yards on Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks. He should have a strong performance against the Washington Redskins who ranks 7th for the least production allowed to opposing wide receivers.
Doug Baldwin is still the primary wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks and while he had a very bad Week 12 only scoring 6.9 fantasy points, it was his first game that Baldwin didn’t go for 85+ yards and the whole team didn’t play well. He is expected to come back for Week 13.
Davante Adams is going to have a strong game especially when Randall Cobb is not performing due to hamstring injury. Davante Adams scored 26.8 points in Week 12 and could still score a lot of fantasy points in Week 13.
Sit the Following WR Players for NFL Week 13
Randall Cobb hamstring injury has not helped his performance and in Week 12 he scored a measly 6.1 fantasy point. Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson are top options for Rodgers as such sit Randall Cobb.
Start the Following TE Players for NFL Week 13
Jimmy Graham had a bad Week 12 but so is the rest of the Seattle Seahawks. Like Doug Baldwin, start Jimmy Graham he should be able to provide in the upper 10s or low 20s for Week 13.
Eric Ebron had a very tough Week 12 scoring 0 fantasy points but should rebound against the New Orleans Saints who have allowed two touchdown to TEs in the past four games.
Sit the Following TE Players for NFL Week 13
Jason Witten has had sensational Week 8 by providing the touchdown win for the Cowboys against the Eagles followed by scoring 23.40 fantasy points in Week 9 against the Cleveland. Other than that he has been disappointing. There is no need to put him back to the starting lineup.
Start the Following Kicker Players for NFL Week 13
Adam Vinatieri had a miserable Week 12 scoring only 1 fantasy point but that is due to Andrew Luck injury and the Indiana Colts could not move the ball on offense. With Andrew Luck expected to play in Week 13, Vinatieri should be able to score a lot of points. He still ranks 11th with 8 points per game and has ranked higher prior to Week 12.
Sit the Following Kicker Players for NFL Week 13
Graham Gano has his extra point blocked and has missed two field goals this season. He only scored 2 fantasy points in Week 12 and against the Seahawks tough defense, Graham Gano would not be productive in Week 13.
Start the Following Defense/Special Teams for NFL Week 13
The Pittsburgh Steelers has silently been building up their defense and have been very productive on fantasy points. They have scored 30 fantasy points on Week 11, followed by 14 points on Week 12, and against the struggling New York Giants on Week 13, they should have a strong performance.
Sit the Following Defense/Special Teams for NFL Week 13
Arizona Cardinals started strong early in the season but their production has steadily decline every week. Scoring 13, 9 and 4 fantasy points in the last three weeks is enough to get this team to the bench for Week 13.
