Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to get back on track versus the Denver Broncos in Week 13. The rookie hasn't been putting up big numbers of late, but much can be attributed to game flow and the Chiefs favoring a pass game over run game. The rookie was able to put up 46 yards on eight carries with a catch for 17 yards in a Week 7 battle and even facing a Broncos Defense allowing 105 rushing yards a game, managers shouldn't be valuing CEH as more than a low-end RB2 or flex option at this point of the season due to his limited opportunities and veteran running back Le'Veon Bell continuing to see around a third of the snaps in the Chiefs backfield.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Le'Veon Bell will continue to see backfield looks versus the Denver Broncos in Week 13. The Chiefs have been giving Bell around a third of the backfield looks with rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire receiving around 60% of late. Bell will face a Broncos team allowing 105 yards per game to opposing rushers, but managers shouldn't expect much out of the veteran. The Chiefs have been pass heavy with quarterback Patrick Mahomes at the helm and that has limited both Bell and Edwards-Helaire in the backfield. Bell is worth holding onto as an insurance policy to Edwards-Helaire, but he remains a shaky flex option with limited opportunities.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will look to continue his strong season versus the Denver Broncos in Week 13. Kelce will look for revenge against a Broncos Defense that limited him to just three catches for 31 yards in Week 7. The Broncos have been holding opposing tight ends to just 46 yards and under five receptions a game, but Kelce is in a class of his own when it comes to the tight end position and remains a huge part of the Chiefs offense. Managers shouldn't worry about his performance in Week 7 and can safely fire up Kelce as a TE1 in Week 13 and beyond.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is coming off of an incredible performance of 13 catches, 269 yards and three touchdowns versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12 and will look to keep his strong season up against the Denver Broncos in Week 13. Hill has scored a touchdown in every game besides one and caught six balls for 55 yards and touchdown when he faced the Broncos in Week 7. Hill along with tight end Travis Kelce have continued to be the focal point for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs and that shouldn't stop on Sunday. The Broncos have limited opposing wide receivers to around 146 yards per game, but Hill's involvement in the offense and ability to score touchdowns makes him a WR1 on a weekly basis.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will look to continue his magnificent year against the Denver Broncos in Week 13. Mahomes only passed the ball 25 times for 213 and one touchdown when the teams met in Week 7, but he leads the league with 3497 passing and is third in the league with 30 touchdowns. Managers shouldn't worry about Week 7 as much was attributed to the game flow in that contest. Mahomes remains one of the best and safest options at any position and should continue to be a QB1 regardless of the matchup.
The Cleveland Browns Defense has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy gamers this season, ranking seventh in the league with 17 total takeaways and 11th with 27 sacks. Despite those strong stats, they will have their work cut out for them against the Tennessee Titans in Week 13. The Tennessee offense is eighth in yards per game and fifth in points per game, setting this up as a difficult road matchup for the Cleveland defense. While they are expected to get star pass-rusher Myles Garrett back, which will help, there should be better streaming options out there as far as fantasy defenses go.
Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper found the end zone last week, although he finished the contest with just two catches. He will look to turn in a bigger performance in a Week 13 road matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee's defense has struggled to defend against the pass this season and that has carried over to tight ends, where they are allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the position this year. While it is an excellent matchup for Hooper, he has not been seeing the required volume to be a trustworthy play in fantasy this season. The Titans are six-point home favorites so there is a chance they get out to a lead and force Cleveland to throw more frequently than usual. Treat Hooper as a high-end TE2 in fantasy this week.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry turned in an excellent performance last week, posting his first 100-yard game and first touchdown of the season in a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He will look to replicate that success in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans. He does have a good shot to be productive again as Tennessee's pass defense has struggled this year, allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position. The Titans are six-point home favorites in this contest, so expect Cleveland to have to throw more frequently than they have been over the past several weeks. Fantasy gamers can treat Landry as a low-end WR2 this weekend.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt has been quiet over the past two weeks, having posted just 83 all-purpose yards. He was surprisingly not active in the passing game it was just the second time all season that he was held without a catch in a game. He has a good shot at bouncing back in an excellent Week 13 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee's run defense is allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs on the season. This game has a 53.5-point over/under with the Titans set as six-point favorites, so it is very likely that the Browns fall behind at some point and have to lean on Hunt in the passing game more than they have over the past few weeks. Treat Hunt as a low-end RB2 in fantasy.
Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb has been racking up the yardage since returning from a knee injury in Week 10, having topped 100 yards in each of his three games and finding the end zone twice. He has a good shot at extending that streak in Week 13 against a struggling Tennessee Titans run defense. Tennessee has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the running back position this season and ranks just 17th in run-defense DVOA. Chubb can be safely started as a top-six running back in fantasy this weekend.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield broke a streak of three straight games without a passing touchdown when he threw for 258 yards and two scores last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He draws an excellent matchup in Week 13 on the road against a weak Tennessee Titans secondary. Tennessee's pass defense has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks and ranks just 27th in DVOA. Despite the plus matchup, exercise caution plugging Mayfield into starting lineups as he hasn't attempted more than 30 passes in a game since Week 5 in the run-heavy Cleveland offense. Treat him as a mid-range QB2 for Week 13.
Chicago Bears TE Jimmy Graham is unlikely to be on the team in 2021, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who says he'd be 'surprised' if Graham is back and 'shocked' if he's back on his current deal that's set to pay him $7 million next season.
Fantasy Spin: Graham started fast but has done little recently so unless he rallies in a big way you'd have to think Biggs is correct and the Bears will need that money to plug holes elsewhere. At this point Graham is a TE2 that could be used as little more than a desperation play.
Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) has 'a really bad problem with his foot,' according to teammate OG Quenton Nelson. Rivers has downplayed the injury publicly, according to the Indianapolis Star's Joel A. Erickson.
Fantasy Spin: Rivers famously played through a torn ACL in the playoffs years ago, and mobility has never been a strong suit. Still, it's worth keeping an eye on Rivers' performance to see if there's any noticeable dip. He's no better than a QB2 most weeks anyway.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has not scored a rushing touchdown since QB Dak Prescott (ankle) was injured, and he is averaging 3.7 yards per carry without Prescott.
Fantasy Spin: Between the injury to Prescott and injuries along the offensive line, Elliott's pedestrian numbers are understandable. Drafted to carry fantasy lineups, he has become a low-ceiling, volume-based RB2.
Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and cornerback Bashaud Breeland missed Thursday's practice with a non-COVID-19-related illness. You'll want to keep an eye on Edwards-Helaire's practice status on Friday. If for some reason he can't face the division-rival Broncos in Week 13, Le'Veon Bell would vault into the RB2 conversation. CEH was a bust for his fantasy managers in Week 12 against the Buccaneers and has more bust potential moving forward with Bell in the picture. However, the Broncos Defense is crumbling and has allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to RBs in the last five weeks. If the rookie plays on Sunday night, he's a solid RB2 with upside for more.
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh wouldn't say whether reigning NFL MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson would play on Tuesday night against the Cowboys in Week 13 after he tested positive for COVID-19 last week and sat out of the loss to the Steelers on Wednesday. He'll complete his 10-day quarantine this weekend, and he could get one full practice in before facing the Cowboys if he's activated on Sunday. Backup Robert Griffin III (hamstring) left Wednesday's game late in the fourth quarter and was replaced by Trace McSorley. If Jackson is activated from the COVID-19 list this weekend, he should be a no-brainer start in a bounce-back opportunity against Dallas' defense. But if he misses his second straight game, you'll probably be best off avoiding Baltimore's entire offense, especially if McSorley has to start under center.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (knee) was limited in practice on Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday. It gives him a chance to play in Week 13 on Sunday night against the division-rival Chiefs. Lindsay was injured in the blowout loss to the Saints in Week 12 and had just nine carries for 20 yards before departing. If the 26-year-old can't play, it'll make Melvin Gordon III more of an RB2 against Kansas City. Royce Freeman, who saw a season-high eight rushing attempts in an abnormal game against the Saints, would back up Gordon. Even if Lindsay plays, he's an unappealing RB3/4 in a timeshare with Gordon in a game in which the Broncos could easily have to abandon the run. With just two receptions all season, Lindsay just isn't involved in Denver's passing attack, either.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (ankle, knee) was on the team's Week 13 injury report on Thursday, but he was a full participant in practice. Allen should be all systems go for Week 13 against the 49ers on Monday night. San Francisco's defense has been getting healthier and improving in recent weeks and have been pretty decent against opposing signal-callers in terms of fantasy points allowed all season. They've allowed just 217.6 passing yards per game, which is the second-lowest mark in the NFL through 12 weeks. Allen has been a bit of a boom-or-bust QB1 this season, but his rushing ability makes him a must-start in single-year formats. The Niners have been good against the pass, but they've been vulnerable to QB rushes, allowing a league-high 335 rushing yards to the position.
Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook (ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second day in a row. Cook was banged up in the Week 12 win over the Panthers, but the Vikings continue to downplay his injury and he should be fine for Week 13 against the Jaguars and their terrible defense. The 25-year-old is a must-start, high-end RB1 and has three 150-yard rushing games in 2020 alone. The Jacksonville defense also has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to running backs. Even though Cook might be a little banged up from all his usage this season, he's still one of the best backs in the NFL and is set up with a great matchup. Start him everywhere.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was held out of practice as a precaution on Thursday, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Samuel proved that he was fully healthy in his return in Week 12 against the Rams by catching 11 passes for 133 yards. That should ease any concerns that fantasy managers may have had after he missed the previous four games with a hamstring injury. The return of rookie first-round receiver Brandon Aiyuk will definitely take some targets away from Samuel on Monday night against the Bills, but fantasy managers should treat him as at least a low-end WR2 in Week 13. Quarterback Nick Mullens is more successful on short passes, and the Niners love to get the ball to Samuel in the flats and let him work.
