Raiders Doug Martin a Sneaky Week 13 Start Against Chiefs

Raiders Doug Martin a Sneaky Week 13 Start Against Chiefs

Your sneaky Fantasy Football plays for Week 13

QB

Case Keenum @ Cincinnati Bengals

Case Keenum has been silent to say the least over the last few weeks, but a Week 12 win against the Steelers may be the boost that he needs to get on track. Not to mention the great matchup he will have in Week 13 against a Bengals defense that is Fantasy’s worst in points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (23.50 Fantasy PPG). This Bengals’ secondary has now allowed three or more passing touchdowns in four of their previous five matchups. With mounting criticism surrounding this team, expect to see the poor play continue, as I could see this Bengals begin to quit on Marvin Lewis. This all adds up to a potentially high point scoring week for Keenum. With the focus of the defense on shutting down Phillip Lindsay and the running attack, I see Keenum piling up the yardage to Emmanuel Sanders and perhaps finally getting Courtland Sutton involved. He may not bring QB1 value this week, but if you are streaming at the position, Keenum could be your guy this week. In DFS, he may not be up there in ownership percentage, but I certainly look at a Keenum/Sanders stack as a great opportunity to cash in in Week 13.

RB

Doug Martin vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Doug Martin has been fairly consistent over the last few weeks while his usage has been adequate enough to maintain the starter’s role for the Raiders. Coming off a solid game in which he found the end zone last week, his matchup in Week 13 could perhaps be his best opportunity yet. He will be matched up against a Chiefs defense that is one of the league’s worst in points allowed to the position (26.02 Fantasy PPG). In fact, this defense has allowed an opposing running back to score in all but two games on the season. Facing the red hot Chiefs’ offense, I fully expect for Jon Gruden to feed the running game to try and keep Patrick Mahomes off the field. This could perhaps mean a 20-touch type of game for Martin this week. Based on the matchup alone, Martin should be in consideration as a Flex option in any format this week as he should again put up a plus effort in this game. In DFS, Martin could be a lower value play that gives you roster flexibility while also exceeding his value.

WR

Bruce Ellington vs. Los Angeles Rams

Bruce Ellington was looking for work just a few weeks ago, claimed by the Detroit Lions after being cut by the Texans, but now he has seen his value rise in Fantasy circles. Since the trade of Golden Tate and injury to Marvin Jones, the Lions have been looking for a compliment to Kenny Golladay and they just may have stumbled upon that with Ellington. In the past two games, Ellington has produced back-to-back six-catch efforts. Look for that to continue against a suspect Rams secondary that is among the league’s worst in points allowed to opposing receivers (27.44 Fantasy PPG). This secondary has allowed at least one receiving score to a team’s second receiver in seven of the last eight games. With the Lions playing from behind, there’s no doubt that Ellington should capitalize as well. Don’t be shocked to see another six-catch game this week with Ellington also finding the end zone. He’s a sneaky option in your Flex in PPR formats and a cheap option to play as your WR3 in DFS in Week 13.

TE

Jason Croom @ Miami Dolphins

This will be my longshot play of the week, as the Bills have not been utilizing the tight end position much since the injury to Charles Clay. But in a matchup against a Dolphins defense that is soft against opposing tight ends (9.64 Fantasy PPG), I could see Josh Allen finding Croom for a score in this game. He may not be an amazing play in PPR formats as his catch total could be low, but in standard scoring he could be a sneaky play as a streaming option. He will be virtually free in DFS as well, if you wish to go that route, so going with Croom would allow you to spend way up at other positions.

DEF

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington

The mighty Eagles’ defense from 2017 is a shell of its former self due to injuries plaguing the team. But, even with the secondary issues this matchup at home against a suspect Washington offense could be one to take advantage of. The disappointing nature of this defense could find them on your waiver wire, making them a priority to pick up in Week 13. The Washington offensive line is in shambles and if the Eagles can do anything, it’s get after the quarterback. So, look for a few sack of Colt McCoy, a rushed throw or two leading to turnovers and an outside chance of a defensive score. They are easily worth the pick up and play for this week.
