WEEK 13 SMART STARTS & PINE RIDERS

The last week of the Fantasy regular season is here and this could be a crucial one for many. Maybe even do or die for some of you. So hopefully I can lend a hand and help you guys make decisions to your lineups this week that can push you towards that victory. Good luck to all and I hope you enjoy the article.!

SMART STARTS

QB

RUSSELL WILSON, SEA

NFL: NOV 09 Seahawks at Cardinals

Wilson has been on fire since week 5, throwing 18 touchdown passes and only 2 interceptions. And going up against a San Fran defense that has allowed 2+ passing touchdowns in all but two games this year, I see Wilson’s streak of multiple touchdowns per game continuing. I easily see him as a top 10 play this week.

 

JAMEIS WINSTON, TB

Yes, I had him as a smart start last week. Yes, I was correct. Yes, he will do it again. He is playing Carolina who has allowed 12 passing touchdowns in the past four weeks. And in the five games Jameis has started this year, he has thrown for over 300 yards three times and the Panthers have allowed that twice in the past three games. Winston should be flirting with top 5 QB numbers this week.

 

RB

PHILLIP LINDSAY, DEN

Denver’s backfield is no longer a committee. Royce Freeman has been nothing because of the red hot undrafted rookie. Since week 7, Lindsay has at least 15 touches in each game. He also has 5 touchdowns during that span as well. And facing a disastrous Cincinnati rush defense who has allowed opposing backs to rush for 460 yards and five touchdowns in the past 3 weeks, I see Lindsay as a high end RB2 this week.

 

GUS EDWARDS, BAL

In the two weeks of Lamar Jackson starting, Gus has had at least 17 carries and broke the 115 yard mark in both games. There is a great chance he keeps it going, playing against Atlanta who has allowed 454 rushing yards in the past three weeks. As long as Lamar is out there, Gus should be in your lineups.

 

WR

LARRY FITZGERALD, ARZ

853861584-0

The veteran and future Hall of Famer has been on the up ever since Byron Leftwich took over as OC. In those four weeks he has 4 touchdown catches versus only 1 in the first 7 games. Rosen has learned to look for Larry in the red zone and that should continue this week against the porous Packers secondary who have allowed 6 receiving touchdowns in the past five weeks. Look for Larry Legend to have a solid Sunday.

 

DJ MOORE, CAR

In the past three weeks, Moore has exploded as he has caught 19 passes out of 22 targets for 268 yards and one score. And this week he faces no challenge against Tampa who has allowed at least one score to opposing receivers in every game and 17 total this season. Moore has the potential to score WR2 numbers this week.

 

TE

ERIC EBRON, IND

Now that Doyle is out for the rest of the season, Ebron should go back to his early season performance once again. Ebron leads all tight ends with 12 total TDs, the next best is Kelce with 7. And facing the Jags D who has allowed 6 receiving touchdowns to opposing TEs in the past 4 weeks, I see Ebron having a chance to be this weeks number one tight end.

 

PINE RIDERS

QB

TOM BRADY, NE

ar-180209658

The GOAT has an extremely tough matchup this week against the Vikings who have allowed only 4 passing touchdowns since week 6. And during that span, only two Quarterbacks have broken 200 passing yards. Plus with the Patriots looking more like a run first offense as of late, I see Brady outside of my top 12 QBs this week.

CARSON WENTZ, PHI

Wentz has not been great this year, after tearing his ACL late last season. And I see his woes continuing this week. Since the Eagles week off three weeks ago, Wentz has three touchdown passes and four interceptions thrown. And facing a Redskins D who have allowed only three passing touchdowns in the last three weeks, Wentz should be on the bench this week.

 

RB

MARLON MACK, IND

Since coming back from an injury in week 6, Mack has been pretty consistent. Touching the ball at least 13 times in each game and finding the end zone 5 times. But facing a Jacksonville Defense who haven’t allowed a rushing touchdown or a 100 yard rusher since week 7, I would look somewhere else if possible this week.

 

LeGARRETTE BLOUNT, DET

It is looking like Kerryon Johnson will be sidelined once again this week, and you might be thinking another game for Blount to go off. But think again. Playing against the red hot Rams, the Lions should be down big for a great portion of the game. And that means Theo Riddick will be out there to catch passes, unlike last weeks Thanksgiving game where Blount feasted and had 20 touches. Blount is a very risky and TD dependent flex this week.

WR

TY HILTON, IND

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Indianapolis Colts

TY has been amazing in the past two weeks, catching 16 passes for 280 yards and two scores. But this week he faces Jalen Ramsey and the Jags, who, just three weeks ago, held TY to 3 catches for 77 Yards. I see the same kind of game from TY this week. Rank him as a boom or bust WR3 this week.

 

JOSH GORDON, NE

Gordon has been decent for the Pats since the trade, catching at least four passes since week 6. But he has managed to only find the end zone once in that time frame. And he faces a tough Vikings secondary this week, who have allowed one or less receiving touchdowns this year in all games but one. I rank Gordon as a low end Flex this week.

 

TE

JIMMY GRAHAM, GB

Since the week 7 bye, Jimmy graham has surpassed 5 PPR fantasy points only twice and only has two touchdown receptions all year. And with his injured thumb, which you could tell affected him in last weeks game, I place Graham outside of my top 10 TEs this week.
