Fantasy Football Week 13 Start & Em & Sit & # 39; Em: Ladies and gentlemen, here's Chris Carson

Preview of the week 13

One more week. One more week to play Fantasy Playoffs or consolidate your playoff position.

Or more weeks to suffer pain because your Fantasy season may be over.

For most fantasy leagues, the playoffs start at the 14th week. It is therefore an important time period. Your Fantasy season might be on the line.

We had a lot of bad news earlier this week with Melvin Gordon's knee injury, Leonard Fournette's suspension and key players like Marvin Jones (knee), Jack Doyle (kidney) and Andy Dalton (thumb) are placed in the casualty reserve. But not everything is lost.

A J. Green (Toe) and Tre & # 39; Quan Smith (Foot) seem ready to play in the 13th week after their absence in recent weeks. And even if guys like Gordon and Fournette are absent, this opens the door to potential replacements for Austin Ekeler and T.J. Yeldon, especially in the PPR leagues.

There are also many great fights to exploit, which you will read below. And we get the added bonus of Rams and Chiefs who have just left their weeks off. It's good to have all those stars back in action.

I wish everyone luck in the 13th week. We hope it will be a good scoring period for you and that your standings will improve as you make your last attempt for a Fantasy Championship.

Editor's Note: Projections are provided by The projected points concern PPR leagues.

Beginning of the week

This is my second time taking Chris Carson as Beginning of the week in his two years of career. I hope to have more luck this time.

The last time was week 4 in 2017 against the Colts, and it was a disaster. Carson had a broken leg and he was lost for the season.

Fortunately, Carson is back in force in 2018 and is Seattle's best running back, although the team has chosen a first-round pick against rookie Rashaad Penny. Carson starts the 13th week against the 49ers with at least 12 PPR points in three of his last four games, and it's a good match for him at home.

For starters, Seattle is a big favorite in this game against San Francisco. And the 49ers' defense is in disarray after letting linebacker Reuben Foster leave following a domestic violence incident.

During Week 12 in Tampa Bay, Peyton Barber scored 13 PPR points against San Francisco, and the Buccaneers did not run the ball as well as the Seahawks.

Carson will lose some contact with Penny and Mike Davis, but he is their best running back in a positive situation. And I expect Carson to make a remarkable performance in this home game.

I start again Carson: Mark Ingram (DAL), Dalvin Cook (NE), Sony Michel (MIN), Adrian Peterson (PHI) and Doug Martin (KC)



Bust alert

I will love Brady more if Xavier Rhodes (hamstring) is away for the Vikings, but it will always be a tough match for him, even at home. As we said last week with Aaron Rodgers playing in Minnesota, when defensive end Everson Griffen is active for the Vikings, they are tough on the back quarters. In six games with Griffen, Minnesota have twice scored Jimmy Garoppolo, Rodgers, Drew Brees, Stafford and Trubisky with an average of only 11.8 Fantasy points per game. Brady has also scored more than 17 Fantasy points just once in his last four games. Admittedly, this took place at the 12th week of the Jets, while his whole receiving body was in good health. But I would not be counting on a dominant Brady game this week, especially if Rhodes is able to play.

Running backs


Bust alert

You're lucky if you started Coleman at Week 12 in New Orleans because he scored a touchdown late to save a miserable line of statistics. Without the touchdown, Coleman finished with just 23 yards on eight runs for six yards, as well as three catches for 17 yards on four targets. Although he has five touchdowns for the season, he has scored only one goal on the field since the first week and he continues to share contacts with Ito Smith. The Ravens allowed only seven touchdowns in total (five in the race and two in the receiving end), and I'm afraid Coleman will show another disappointing line of statistics. He also scored 10 points or less in three consecutive games. This makes him play as a flexible option, but he is not a running back, even at home, against the Ravens.

Wide receivers


Bust alert

Boyd will benefit with A.J. Green (toe) is expected to return this week, but he has also downgraded the quarters with the departure of Jeff Driskel. Now, Green is still useful as a Fantasy No. 2 receiver, but Boyd is rather a No. 3 option. Driskel has been in contact with Boyd for a 28-yard touchdown in the 12th week against Cleveland after Andy Dalton got injured, but Boyd could see a lot of coverage from Denver cornerback Chris Harris in the 13th week. Hopefully Driskel will keep Green and Boyd playing at a high level, but I'm retrograde Boyd this week given the quarter-back shift and the possibility of a confrontation with Harris.

Tight ends


Bust alert

Cook is here only if Eric Berry (heel), chief of security services, can play this week. If Berry stays away, consider Cook a safe start, but Berry has been an eraser during his career. Cook has played well lately with five catches for 63 yards and two touchdowns from 11 targets in his last two games against Arizona and Baltimore, but I would be reluctant to play him in a game against Berry.

Defense / Special Forces


Seahawks (vs. SF) – 9.3 points projected

The 49ers will play a second consecutive road game this week in Seattle and Nick Mullens looked like a third-string quarterback at Week 12 in Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers had four sacks and two interceptions, and Mullens has now made four interceptions in his last two games.


Sit Em

Chargers (at PIT) – 7.0 Projected Points

The DST Chargers have recently made a good run with at least 10 Fantasy points in three of the last four games. But this is not the time to trust the DST Chargers in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have an average of 35.4 points at home this year, and Ben Roethlisberger has only four sacks and three interceptions in those matches.



McManus has only accumulated 12 Fantasy points in his last two games, but he is expected to make a big come-out, which should happen this week. The Bengals are the No. 4 Fantasy Points allowed for opposing kickers, and five of the last six kickers against Cincinnati have scored at least eight Fantasy points.


Sit Em

Bailey has been a disappointing kicker with more than six Fantasy points or less in four consecutive games. He just missed two home goals against Green Bay in Week 12 and the Patriots allowed just one kicker to score more than seven Fantasy points against them in the last five games.
