Fantasy Football, Week 13 – Players to line up and leave on the bench

Every week, find our tips for fielding the best possible team in your Fantasy leagues.

We remind you that we are not talking about stars, like Patrick Mahomes, Jonathan Taylor or Justin Jefferson who are indestructible in the workforce. The idea is to help you on the choices for the more delicate positions like those of WR2-3 or that of the FLEX, and during the « Bye Weeks ».


Players to line up

Trevor Lawrence (Jacksonville Jaguars)

The Jaguars QB is playing well right now, and he’s coming off his best game in the NFL. He has the opportunity to confirm against a team that still does not defend very well: Detroit. If you don’t trust your starter this week, you can field him.

Jimmy Garoppolo (San Francisco 49ers)

Another playable option this weekend if necessary, Jimmy G can take advantage of his offensive weapons to carry it. He is coming out of a discreet, but very defensive match, and Sunday’s match should be less so against Miami.

Other QBs that it is possible to align: Dak Prescott (DAL), Aaron Rodgers (GB), Mike White (NYJ), Jared Goff (DET)

Players to keep warm

Russell Wilson (Denver Broncos)

There’s no hope for Wilson and the Broncos, who continue to be horrible offensively. Baltimore is not the worst team yet, but impossible to trust a player in such difficulty.

Ryan Tannehill (Tennessee Titans)

The Titans QB can still pull off a few nice games, but it’s inconsistent and he’s coming off a very average performance against Cincinnati. His potential looks limited against the Eagles, who allocate the fewest fantasy points to QBs.

Other QBs to leave on the bench: Tom Brady (TB), Daniel Jones (NYG)

Running backs

Players to line up

David Montgomery (Chicago Bears)

In the absence of Khalil Herbert, injured, David Montgomery regained his status as clear number 1 on the backfield of the Bears. He should perform well this weekend, against the Packers who are being walked on week after week.

Dameon Pierce (Houston Texas)

The rookie remains on 2 very complicated games, but he has the opportunity to bounce back this weekend, in the duel of the 2 worst ground defenses in the NFL. His team is of course the worst, but the Browns are also very bad in this sector.

Other RBs that can be fielded: Ezekiel Elliott (DAL), Aaron Jones (GB), Rachaad White (TB), Brian Robinson Jr (WAS), Jamaal Williams (DET)

Players to keep warm

Devin Singletary (Buffalo Bills)

He was very disappointing against Detroit on Thanksgiving, and he loses touches at the expense of James Cook and Nyheim Hines. Best to stay away from the Buffalo RBs this weekend against a good running defense from the Pats.

Jeff Wilson (Miami Dolphins)

If Raheem Mostert can play, then there’s a double rematch, because he and Jeff Wilson were with the 49ers before. Just like Miami coach Mike McDaniel. But that shouldn’t make you forget that San Francisco’s defense is one of the best in the NFL.

Other RBs to leave on the bench: Cordarrelle Patterson (ATL), Isiah Pacheco (KC), Latavius ​​Murray (DEN)


Players to line up

Garrett Wilson (New York Jets)

Often invisible when Zach Wilson was the holder, Garrett Wilson is much more visible when another QB plays since he displays an average of more than 19 Fantasy points. With Mike White now in the center of the Jets offense, he will have more opportunities to shine.

Christian Watson (Green Bay Packers)

The Packers rookie confirms his good form, but his status in Fantasy logically depends on the presence of Aaron Rodgers. Touched to the ratings, the QB should hold its place against the Bears, which is good news for its receivers.

Other possible WRs: Chris Olave (NO), Josh Palmer (LAC), George Pickens (PIT)

Players to keep warm

Curtis Samuel (Washington Commanders)

Interesting flex at the start of the season, Curtis Samuel has almost no place in the Fantasy workforce. The Commanders play a lot on the ground, and Taylor Heinicke hardly looks for Samuel in the air.

Adam Thielen (Minnesota Vikings)

The number 2 WR of the Vikings remains on a good game against the Patriots, but it is a bit of an anomaly in his season. Without a touchdown, his stat sheets are often too limited to make him viable. The Jets’ defense is also very solid in the air.

Other WRs to leave on the bench: Jakobi Meyers (NE)

Tight ends

Players to line up

Gerald Everett (Los Angeles Chargers)

We expected better from Gerald Everett against the Cardinals who defend badly against the TE, but he has a new chance against the Raiders not much more solid. He had also signed a good performance in the first leg.

Foster Moreau (Las Vegas Raiders)

In the same match, Foster Moreau should also have a fairly prolific day. He is taking full advantage of the opportunities in the absence of Darren Waller, and the chance to play in an attack that has scoring potential.

Other possible TEs: George Kittle (SF), Tyler Conklin (NYJ), Tyler Higbee (LAR), Evan Engram (JAX)

Players to keep warm

Mike Gesicki (Miami Dolphins)

The Dolphins TE didn’t catch a pass last week against Houston, and that’s worrisome in an offense that’s prolific. And this weekend, he faces one of the best defenses in the league: San Francisco.

Cole Kmet (Chicago Bears)

If Justin Fields doesn’t play, which is likely, Cole Kmet loses all of his potential. We saw it in the previous game with Trevor Siemian as QB.

Other TEs to leave on the bench: Robert Tonyan (GB), Greg Dulcich (DEN), Dawson Knox (BUF), Hunter Henry (NE)


The defenses to line up

Cleveland Browns

And the winner is … Cleveland. The Browns are playing the Texans this week, and that normally guarantees a big Fantasy score.

Seattle Seahawks

Without Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Allen Robinson, and a few linemen, the Rams offense scares no one. A boon for the Seahawks, who have the opportunity to rebound after the 40 points taken against the Raiders.

Other interesting defenses: Cowboys, Ravens, Steelers, Commanders

The tusks to keep warm

Kansas City Chiefs

The Bengals are dangerous offensively, and both Ja’Marr Chase and Joe Mixon are expected to return this weekend. We therefore expect a good show and potentially a lot of points in this clash of the AFC.
