Dallas Cowboys who?!?! Do they even have a defense at this point?? Philip Rivers didn’t seem to find their defense in week 12 when he threw for 434 yards and 3 TDs. It was honestly like he was playing a pee wee football secondary when he torched them with no care that it was a Holiday or that their families were watching. I am absolutely going to ride the hot hand when it comes to Rivers. When he gets hot … he gets HOTT (two T’s a must). This week Rivers takes on the Cleveland Browns who are 20th worst in the league on a yards per game basis ( not too shabby for the Browns), but (you knew that was coming) they have let up 22 passing TDs over the season which is tied for 2nd most in the NFL. Expect Rivers to stay hot in week 13. Fantasy Projection: 276 yards 3 TDs

I am pleasantly surprised by Case Keenum this year and I’m pretty sure the Vikings are too! Keenum has been much better than I ever could have expected and is actually 7-2 as a starter for the Vikings this year. I definitely think that most weeks he will be a much better football QB than a fantasy QB, but still think he will consistently fall in the top 15 just like this week. Week 13 he will take on the Atlanta Falcons who are 8th best against the pass on a yards per game basis so he definitely will be challenged this week. I expect Keenum will fair OK against the falcons, but will by no means put up a top ten week. Fantasy Projection: 235 yards 1-2 TDs

Running Back
  1. Le’Veon Bell, PIT RB at CIN
  2. Todd Gurley, LAR RB at ARI
  3. Alvin Kamara, NO RB vs. CAR
  4. Jordan Howard, CHI RB vs. SF
  5. LeSean McCoy, BUF RB vs. NE
  6. Samaje Perine, WAS RB at DAL
  7. Leonard Fournette, JAC RB vs. IND
  8. Dion Lewis, NE RB at BUF
  9. Carlos Hyde, SF RB at CHI
  10. Jamaal Williams, GB RB vs. TB
  11. Melvin Gordon, LAC RB vs. CLE
  12. Mark Ingram, NO RB vs. CAR
  13. Christian McCaffrey, CAR at NO
  14. Marshawn Lynch, OAK RB vs. NYG
  15. Adrian Peterson, ARI RB vs. LAR

Jamaal Williams had a BREAK OUT game this past week against the Pittsburgh Steelers when he rushed for 66 yards and 1 TD on 21 carries and also had 4 catches for 69 yards and 1 TD. The overall fantasy output from Williams was amazing, but the one thing that really gets me excited is the number of touches he got on the ground (21). Assuming he is the starter again and receives a similar workload I expect his success to continue into week 13 when he faces the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers are 19th worst against the run and have allowed 10 TDs over the season. I expect that the Packers will be leading slightly in this game and will give plenty of carries to Williams to run out the clock. This could lead to another significant game for Williams. Fantasy Projections: 57 yards rushing 1TD 3 receptions 21 yards.

Marshawn Lynch AKA BEASTMODE kept his cool in week 12 against the Broncos unlike team mate Michael Crabtree who was ejected and suspended for a game for fighting. Lynch rushed for 63 yards and 1 TD while also catching 3 passes for 43 yards. This was a HUGE game for Lynch especially after a lack luster return season. I expect Lynch could continue to roll this week when he faces the New York Giants who are 2nd worst against the run on a yards per game basis. This is a big matchup bonus for Lynch has me slightly more excited than I probably should be. Fantasy Projection: 51 yards rushing potential for 1 TD 3 catches 17 yards

Robby Anderson has been quite the surprise this year with 7 TDs and 714 yards after 11 weeks of play. Last week Anderson BLEW UP for 146 yards and 2 TDs. The best thing about Anderson is that he has this massive upside, but he also has a pretty stable floor and definitely won’t ruin your week with a horrible performance. Anderson has had 5 straight games with at least one TD and I expect that trend will continue into week 13. Anderson takes on the Kansas City Chiefs who are 8th worst against the pass on a yards per game basis and have allowed 17 TDs over the season. This is not a defense that should scare any Anderson owners and I think he will have a top 15 week if not better. Fantasy Projection: 6 catches 63 yards 1 TD

Between weeks 9 and 10 Larry Fitzgerald had 19 catches for over 200 yards and 1 TD. These are studly numbers especially in a PPR league. Last week he definitely struggled when he only had 3 catches for 12 yards. This poor performance does not push me away from Fitzgerald mainly because he was facing one of the best defenses against the pass in the Jaguars. This week Fitzgerald takes on the LA Rams who are 9th best against receivers on a yards per game basis which is a slight upgrade from the best defense which he faced last week. I dont expect a top ten performance from Fitz, but I think you can expect a bounce back and a top twenty performance. Fantasy Projection: 6 catches 51 yards 1 TD

Tight Ends
  1. Rob Gronkowski, NE TE at BUF
  2. Travis Kelce, KC TE at NYJ
  3. Jared Cook, OAK TE vs. NYG
  4. Jimmy Graham, SEA TE vs. PHI
  5. Zach Ertz, PHI TE at SEA
  6. Delanie Walker, TEN TE vs. HOU
  7. Evan Engram, NYG TE at OAK
  8. Jack Doyle, IND TE at JAC
  9. Vernon Davis, WAS TE at DAL
  10. Hunter Henry, LAC TE vs. CLE
  11. Kyle Rudolph, MIN TE at ATL
  12. Charles Clay, BUF TE vs. NE

I know he’s not the highest on this list, but I really like the upside of Jared Cook this week. Cook has some serious upside at the TE position going for over 100 yards receiving twice in the season. This week he takes on the Giants who are 4th worst against receivers on a yards per game basis and tied for second worst on a TD per game basis. Not only does Cook have a great matchup, but the Raiders could be missing both Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree their main receivers. I see a potentially huge game for Cook this week. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 71 yards 1 TD.
