The Roto Superstar’s Week 13 Starts and Sits

The Roto Superstar’s Week 13 Starts and Sits premium
Brandon Murchison November 29, 2018 10:29AM EST

Woo and Boo: Your start and sit recommendations for Week 13

Woo

QB

Lamar Jackson @ Atlanta Falcons

Jackson may not wow you with his lack of passing ability so far through two starts, but he has more than made up for it with his rushing ability. That should continue to be the case in Week 13 against a Falcons defense that has had its problems in stopping opposing teams’ rushing attacks. In addition to that, aside from Week One, the Falcons’ defense has surrendered at least one passing touchdown in every game while also allowing at least three scores in seven of those games. If you are the streaming type at the position, Jackson makes for a solid play in this matchup. He will likely give you around 90 yards rushing and a score, but if he can get his first 200 yard passing game here, it’s all the sweeter.

Baker Mayfield @ Houston Texans

With multiple scores in his last five games, you can say that Mayfield is firing on all cylinders. Even in a matchup against a strong Texans secondary, it is hard to argue for benching Mayfield currently unless you own one of the upper echelon players at the position. In a game in which the Browns likely will have to match points with a hot Texans offense, Mayfield should be up to the task back in Big 12 country. Look for a minimum of two scores in this game as he throws for just under 300 yards. That would make Mayfield a fringe QB1 in Week 13.

RB

Gus Edwards @ Atlanta Falcons

Alongside Lamar Jackson, it seems that the Ravens have found a formidable 1-2 punch with Gus Edwards. Coming off back-to-back 100-yard games, Edwards has cemented himself as the starting running back for the Ravens. That definitely carries weight in this game because, as previously mentioned, the Ravens will be facing one of Fantasy’s worst defenses against opposing running backs in the Falcons. Another 100-yard game should be in the cards for Edwards this week, and he should also find the end zone. He could easily bring RB1 value in Week 13 for a player that you may have the luxury of starting in your Flex.

Austin Ekeler @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Speaking of strong Flex plays with high upside, Austin Ekeler fits the mold due to the injury to Melvin Gordon. In his lone start earlier in the season, “lackluster” could be the word to describe his 68 total yard effort on 17 touches. I expect to see a better outcome in this game, as the Chargers will not want to put the entire offense solely on Philip Rivers’ shoulders. Look for around 20 touches in this game for Ekeler and a solid 125 total yards while also getting a score. Like Edwards, you will more than likely have Ekeler in your Flex this week, while he brings you back RB2 value.

WR

D.J. Moore @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

For the casual Fantasy owner, D.J. Moore is a receiver that is probably flying under the radar over the last two weeks. However, he has essentially become the Panthers WR1 and with 15 catches over the last couple of weeks, and he’s playing at WR2 caliber in Fantasy. Look for Moore to stay on that level in a very juicy matchup against a Buccaneers defense that is one of Fantasy’s worst against the position. I’m expecting a seven catch, 105-yard day from Moore, while he should find the end zone as well. Definitely worth the start as a WR2 for you in Week 13.

Larry Fitzgerald @ Green Bay Packers

Don’t look now, but the ageless Larry Fitzgerald is making a late season surge as he develops chemistry with Josh Rosen. He has five touchdowns in his last five games and that could be the case yet again in Week 13. The matchup against the banged-up Packers’ secondary could prove to be fruitful. He may not be a prime candidate to start in PPR formats with only four total catches over the last two games, but in standard leagues the threat of scoring brings consideration. Don’t be afraid to plug him in as your WR3 this week, since the Cardinals will be playing from behind.

TE

Cameron Brate vs. Carolina Panthers

Jameis Winston is starting and O.J. Howard is done for the year, so starting Brate should be a no-brainer. If you were able to grab him off the waiver wire, you now get the prize of a great matchup against Fantasy’s worst defense against opposing tight ends.

DEF

Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders

With how much of this season has gone, when you think of great Fantasy defenses, the Chiefs don’t come to mind. But with a juicy matchup against a bad Raiders offense, you’re looking at a unit that should provide starting defense numbers in Fantasy this week.


Boo

QB

Dak Prescott vs. New Orleans Saints

Since the acquisition of Amari Cooper, Prescott as been playing as a fringe QB1 in Fantasy, but the matchup against the Saints has all the makings for a bench-worthy performance. This defense is starting to come around after shutting down two excellent quarterbacks the last two games in Carson Wentz and Matt Ryan. Also, with the likelihood of the Cowboys being short two offensive linemen, the Saints could cause problems all night long. If you have other options to pivot to, I would certainly go that direction.

Matthew Stafford vs. Los Angeles Rams

Matt Stafford has been very disappointing this season. Coming into the week as the 17th best quarterback in Fantasy, Stafford has been without a 300-yard game in the past month and has only one touchdown in the last two weeks. The matchup against the Rams’ secondary looks enticing on paper, but the lack of weapons could once again hinder Stafford’s potential. A player like Case Keenum is one that I could easily favor ahead of Stafford this week as a better option.

RB

James White vs. Minnesota Vikings

With Sony Michel back in the fold, James White has taken a backseat in the pecking order over the last two games. With the potential game-plan for the Patriots being very run heavy to keep the Vikings offense off the field, the touches for White may once again be minimal. You’re possibly locked into starting White due to a lack of options, but play him as a Flex and temper your expectations.

Jordan Howard @ New York Giants

Another player that has been extremely disappointing during the 2018 season, Jordan Howard finds himself behind Tarik Cohen in the backfield rotation. He has not hit 100 yards rushing  in a game this season and it’s been three weeks since he has scored. I don’t expect to see that change on the road against an improving Giants defense. Yes, you drafted him high with lofty expectations, but in the final week of the Fantasy regular season, if you are still starting Howard you are likely out of the playoff race.

WR

Sammy Watkins @ Oakland Raiders

Keep an eye on injury reports throughout the week, but it is unlikely that Watkins plays in Week 13. If he decides to give it a go, he will be a non-factor and should be on your bench.

Golden Tate vs. Washington Redskins

Excitement was high when Tate was traded to the Eagles, but he has yet to find his role on this team. He has just 97 yards through three games with his new team and has seen his Fantasy stock drop like a rock. It’s hard to keep trotting him out there with confidence at this point, so if you have another option to go with this week, I would entertain the thought.

TE

Evan Engram vs. Chicago Bears

Whether he was injured in warmups last week or was just flat-out benched, it seems as though Engram is not the Top 10 tight end that we thought we were drafting. He has been out-played by Rhett Ellison in recent weeks and draws a tough matchup against one of the league’s best defenses. Add it all up and you have yourself scrounging the waiver wire for his replacement this week.

DEF

New England Patriots vs. Minnesota Vikings

This game could potentially evolve into a shootout and with the potential of the negative point threat as your Fantasy defense, I would look to the waiver wire for a more solid option in Week 13.
