  1. Patrick Mahomes, KC QB at OAK
  2. Cam Newton, CAR QB at TB
  3. Jared Goff, LAR QB at DET

  5. Deshaun Watson, HOU QB vs. CLE

  12. Philip Rivers, LAC QB at PIT
  13. Lamar Jackson, BAL QB at ATL
  14. Dak Prescott, DAL QB vs. NO
  15. Carson Wentz, PHI WB vs. WAS

Lamar Jackson has burst onto the scene as a fantasy relevant option whenever he gets the start for the Ravens. Most of Jackson’s fantasy points have come on the ground after he rushed for 190 yards over his first two starts. In week 12 Jackson also added a TD through the air and a TD on the ground. He may not be the most conventional QB, but he is definitely relevant for fantasy purposes. This week Jackson takes on the Falcons who are 7th worst against the pass on a passing yards per game basis. The Falcons have also allowed the 2nd most passing TDs over the season. Not only are they bad against the pass, but they are 8th worst against the run which is Jackson’s forte. Fantasy Projection: 150 yards passing .5 TD 75 yards rushing 1 TD

Dak Prescott had a solid game in week 12 agains the Redskins when he threw for 289 yards and 2TD’s on Thanksgiving. Dak definitely enjoyed having Amari Cooper in this game mainly due to two long TDs thrown to him. The connection between Dak and Amari should continue to develop and will help Dak further down the road. This week Dak faces the Saints who are 3rd worst against the pass on a passing yards per game basis. This is one of the best possible matchups for Dak so I expect him to have one of his best games yet. Fantasy Projection: 231 yards 1.5 TDs

Running Back
  1. Kareem Hunt, KC RB at OAK
  2. Todd Gurley, LAR RB at DET
  3. Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB at TB
  4. Saquon Barkley, NYG RB vs. CHI
  5. Alvin Kamara, NO RB at DAL
  6. Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB vs. NO
  7. Aaron Jones, GB RB vs, ARI
  8. James Conner, PIT RB vs. LAC
  9. Philip Lindsay, DEN RB at CIN
  10. Nick Chubb, CLE RB at HOU
  11. David Johnson, ARI RB at GB
  12. Joe Mixon, CIN RB vs. DEN
  13. Matt Breida, SF RB at SEA
  14. Gus Edwards, BAL RB at ATL
  15. Lamar Miller, HOU RB vs. CLE

Christian McCaffrey had the highest fantasy scoring performance of the season in PPR leagues in week 12. In the week 12 game against the Seahawks, McCaffrey rushed for 125 yards and 1 TD and caught 11 passes for 112 yards and ANOTHER TD. Catching 11 passes is unheard of at the RB position, but this is the second time this year McCaffrey has eclipsed the double digit reception mark in a game this year. This week McCaffrey will try to continue his success against the Buccaneers who are in the middle of the pack defensively against the run. Even though it is not the best matchup for McCaffrey he has already scorched them this year for 157 total yards and 2 TDs. Fantasy Projection: 95 yards rushing .5 TD 7 receptions 65 yards 1 TD

Gus Edwards is proving himself as a steady fantasy asset and potentially that pick up that can help you win a championship. In the past two games that Edwards has started, he has rushed for over 110 yards and each and 1 TD total. This is a very startable fantasy asset that could be one of the more valuable waiver wire adds of the year. This week Edwards will face the Falcons who are 8th worst against the run allowing over 120 yards on the ground per game. This is another good matchup for Edwards and he will have continued success. Fantasy Projection: 80 yards rushing .5 TDs

  2. Adam Thielen, MIN WR at NE
  3. Antonio Brown, PIT WR vs. LAC
  4. Tyreek Hill, KC WR at OAK
  5. Odell Beckham Jr., NYG WR vs. CHI
  6. Michael Thomas, NO WR at DAL
  7. Davante Adams, GB WR vs. ARI
  8. Julio Jones, ATL WR vs. BAL
  9. Mike Evans, TB WR vs. CAR
  10. JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR vs. LAC

  19. Robert Woods, LAR WR at DET
  20. T.Y. Hilton, IND WR at JAC
  21. Corey Davis, TEN WR vs. NYJ
  22. Tyler Boyd, CIN WR vs. DEN
  23. Julian Edelman, NE WR vs. MIN
  24. Alshon Jeffery, PHI WR vs. WAS
  25. Josh Gordon, NE WR vs. MIN

Amari Cooper absolutely BLEW UP last week against the Redskins when he caught 8 passes for 180 yards and 2 TDs. Cooper is becoming a reliable target for QB Dak Prescott and these huge games are always a possibilty for the extremely talented WR. This week Cooper matches up against the Saints who are the second worst against opposing receivers. This is a PRIME matchup for Cooper to take advantage of again and I expect he has a great week 13. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 71 yards 1 TD

Rookie receiver D.J. Moore was highly drafted and has now shown off the reason for that high draft pick in the past two weeks. Moore had put up 248 yards and 1 TD over the past two games and it looks like he has taken over as the Panthers top receiver for the remainder of the season. Moore looks ahead to a week 13 matchup against the Buccaneers who are the 6th worst against opposing receivers and are a juicy matchup. I expect that the game will remain fairly close, but each team will need to throw and throw often to keep up with each other. This is a very positive game script for Moore. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 75 yards .5 TDs

Tight Ends
  1. Travis Kelce, KC TE at OAK
  2. Zach Ertz, PHI TE vs. WAS
  3. George Kittle, SF TE at SEA
  4. Eric Ebron, IND TE at JAC
  5. Rob Gronkowski, NE TE vs. MIN
  6. Cameron Brate, TB TE vs. CAR
  7. Jordan Reed, WAS TE at PHI
  8. Jared Cook, OAK TE vs. KC
  9. Greg Olsen, CAR TE at TB
  10. David Njoku, CLE TE at HOU
  11. Trey Burton, CHI TE at NYG
  12. Vance McDonald, PIT TE vs. LAC

In week 13 Colts TE Jack Doyle suffered a season ending injury that has thrust Eric Ebron back into the TE 1 landscape. Ebron was extremely successful as a TE 1 when Doyle was out at the beginning of the season and I expect he will be able to take over right where he left off. Ebron has a tough matchup this week against the Jaguars, but with a star QB like Andrew Luck I expect he will still have a great game. Fantasy Projection: 5 receptions 61 yards 1 TD
