Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley (foot, ankle) is good to go for a rematch with the New Orleans secondary in Week 13. Ridley has been banged up for a couple of weeks now but has still produced, putting up at least five catches and 50 yards in his last two games. The Saints' secondary has clamped down in the past few weeks, though they'll be without the services of Janoris Jenkins (knee). The potential presence of Julio Jones (hamstring) could also help Ridley's outlook. He should finish among the WR1 ranks this week.
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) practiced in full on Friday, but he's listed as questionable for Week 13 against the division-rival Chiefs on Sunday night. Unless Jeudy suffers a setback on Saturday, he should be good to go in the rematch against the Super Bowl champions. Don't just assume that the Alabama product will bounce back in a big way from his donut in Week 12 because the Broncos will be forced to pass often against KC. The 21-year-old will certainly get on the board on Sunday night, but the Chiefs Defense has allowed the fewest receiving yards per game dating back to the start of last season. And Jeudy has caught only 37 of his 78 targets from quarterback Drew Lock in his rookie season. That's not great efficiency, making Jeudy more of a WR3/flex on Sunday night under the lights.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been inconsistent for fantasy this year, but he's a safer play for Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals as a QB2. For his career, Goff has averaged right around 20 fantasy points per game against Arizona and he's actually seen a two-point bump when he's played them on the road. The Cardinals are allowing an average of 18 fantasy points per game to the quarterback position, which isn't a crazy good number, but Goff could be a good fill-in option with other starting quarterbacks dealing with injuries or bad matchups this week.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) is a must-start fantasy option if active for Sunday's game against the Saints. Jones appears to be on the right side of questionable after a limited session on Friday. The All-Pro wideout has averaged 7.4 receptions and 116.4 receiving yards on 9.6 targets per game with three touchdowns in five contests where he's been fully healthy. The health has definitely been a concern, but Jones is a must-start WR1 whenever he's active. Lock him into fantasy lineups if he's available against the Saints' pass-funnel defense.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman led the team with eight carries for 50 rushing yards in the Week 12 blowout loss to the Saints, but last week was an abnormal game, and that's an understatement. It helped that Phillip Lindsay (knee) left the game with an injury, and Freeman could be in line for an increase in workload if Lindsay misses the Sunday night game against the Chiefs, although it's looking like Lindsay should be active after practicing in full on Friday. In a best-case scenario, Freeman would help spell Melvin Gordon III against the division-rival Chiefs if Lindsay was inactive. But even in that situation, the 24-year-old wouldn't have standalone fantasy value. He has only 30 carries for 129 scoreless yards and nine catches for 73 yards in 11 games this season.
Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers has rarely been an elite fantasy play this season, but he remains a safe play again in Week 13. He's gone 15-for-15 on his field-goal attempts this season and he's gone 40-for-44 on extra-point attempts. While the New York Giants have a decent defense, they really lock it down in the red zone. They allow teams to score a touchdown on just 55.26 percent of their red-zone trips. With that in mind, Myers could have a lot more upside than we're used to this weekend. He's still not the best play for the week, but he should be considered a top-10 kicking option for those streaming kickers in Week 13.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (knee) was a full practice participant on Friday, but he's listed as questionable for Week 13 against the division-rival Chiefs on Sunday night. Lindsay looks to have a good chance at being active, but if you want to win your fantasy matchup this weekend and get into the fantasy playoffs, you should stay away from him. His presence against Kansas City would hurt Melvin Gordon III's upside and make both RBs more of RB3/flex options, with Lindsay being more of an RB4 in deeper leagues. The 26-year-old has just two receptions all year, giving him very little upside in PPR leagues. The Chiefs Defense has been more vulnerable on the ground, but Gordon is the only player in this backfield worth considering in Week 13.
The Seattle Seahawks Defense hasn't been the best for fantasy football this season, but they have a chance for a lot of value in Week 13 against the New York Giants. Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (hamstring) was announced as doubtful to play on Friday, which puts quarterback Colt McCoy in line for the start this weekend. Through 29 career games, he's thrown for 29 touchdowns and 27 interceptions. This Seahawks defense generated pressure and turnovers last week against the Philadelphia Eagles and they are a reasonable play again this week as a top-10 fantasy unit.
Los Angeles Chargers running back Kalen Ballage (ankle), cornerback Casey Hayward (groin) and linebacker Uchenna Nwosu (chest) are questionable to play in Week 13 against the Patriots. Ballage practiced in full on Friday, so he should be active on Sunday. However, with Austin Ekeler returning from Injured Reserve last week and leading the backfield, Ballage has essentially lost the fleeting fantasy value that he had when Ekeler was on IR. He'll be fighting for touches with rookie Joshua Kelley and Troymaine Pope behind Ekeler on Sunday. Ekeler is right back in the RB1 conversation in his second game back. If Hayward can't suit up, it'll put more responsibility on cornerback Chris Harris Jr. in LA's secondary and upgrade the matchup for Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.
The Colts Defense had their worst performance of the season last week against the Titans, and they will have another tall task this week against Deshaun Watson and the Texans. Watson has been phenomenal this year. He has a passer rating of 103.6, has tossed 24 touchdowns and has not thrown an interception since Week 5. The Colts defense has been good against the pass, but they may be a risky start this week. They may be able to get some sacks as the Texans offensive line has allowed 28 sacks this year, but Watson does not turn the ball over and his capable of putting up plenty of points.
Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley II (knee) is questionable for Week 13 against the Saints, though it would appear he has a good shot to play. If Gurley plays, he'll be taking on a Saints team that possesses the second-best run defense in the NFL. Gurley has struggled to a 3.7 yards per carry average, with his fantasy statistics buoyed by his rushing touchdowns. This is a matchup to actively avoid, as Gurley may not finish among the top-30 running backs this week. If he's inactive, it's best to avoid the backfield committee of Brian Hill and Ito Smith as well.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has been kind of boom-or-bust this year, but he's trending upwards in Week 13 against the New York Giants. He's on pace to top his career-best 82 receptions from last year and he's already scored eight touchdowns this season. If he scores at least three times in the next five games, he'll top his current record of 10. Lockett will get the easier matchup this week because cornerback James Bradberry will be following teammate D.K. Metcalf on the other side. As a result, Lockett could make a push for WR1 status this week.
Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith (knee) and cornerback Adoree' Jackson (knee) have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Browns. Smith missed practice all week, so he wasn't close to playing this weekend after not seeing a single target in the Week 12 win over the Colts. Whenever he returns to action, he'll be a shaky touchdown-dependent, low-end TE1 for fantasy managers. Receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis should see more targets in the passing game. Anthony Firkser figures to benefit as the top pass-catching tight end with Smith out, but MyCole Pruitt could also see some run. Firkser isn't the answer for those looking for help at tight end in Week 13 fantasy lineups.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been struggling as of late with a matchup against New Orleans on tap. Without the presence of his favorite receiver Julio Jones (hamstring), Ryan has thrown for just 417 passing yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in his last two games. The Saints Defense has been on a roll lately and got to Ryan in their first meeting, sacking him eight times and picking him off twice. Having Jones back in the lineup would certainly help, though it's wise for fantasy managers to avoid the Saints' defense wherever possible right now.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Trey Burton caught another touchdown last week against the Titans, which gives him five total touchdowns on the season. All of those touchdowns came in the red-zone, proving he is a legitimate threat inside the 20-yard-line. With that being said, Burton needs touchdowns to be a reliable fantasy option. He has just two games all season with four or more catches and one game with over 50 receiving yards. The Texans Defense has struggled most of the season, and they rank 19th against opposing tight ends. Burton is worthy of starting consideration in deeper leagues but his value rests with finding the end zone.
New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Chargers. Newton was limited in practice all week, so fantasy managers should consider him likely to suit up on Sunday. He could be in danger of aggravating the injury because of his aggressive style of play and the fact that he's run the ball double-digit times in five games this year. However, the Chargers Defense has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to signal-callers this year, including four rushing scores. Newton has QB1 upside each week because of his rushing prowess (nine rushing scores), but fantasy managers may be wary after he completed just nine passes for 84 yards in the win over Arizona last week. Consider him a high-end QB2 with a safer floor against LA on Sunday.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf just got done cooking Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay, and he's setting his sights on the New York Giants secondary for Week 13. On the year, he's averaging over 19 PPR points per game. Through 11 games, he's been held under 13.6 fantasy points just twice. The Giants are allowing just 23.0 fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position, but they haven't been matching up with a quarterback-receiver duo like Russell Wilson and Metcalf. With good weather forecasted for Sunday, he's a strong play again this week.
Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward (calf) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Titans. The Browns are getting All-Pro pass-rusher Myles Garrett back from the COVID-19 list this weekend, but they'll be thin in the secondary without Ward around. Cleveland will still have a difficult time trying to slow down the NFL's rushing leader in Derrick Henry on Sunday, and wide receiver A.J. Brown should have no problems returning WR1 value for his fantasy managers as well. The Browns Defense has been pretty solid in the fantasy realm in 2020, but this weekend isn't a time in which you should trust them to your starting lineups. Ward has 38 tackles (32 solo), two interceptions, 15 passes defensed and a forced fumble in 10 games this season.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal is now the No. 3 wide receiver on the team's depth chart, so it is tough to consider him a reliable flex option. He had his worst performance of the season last week with just one catch for 23 yards. The only silver lining for this week is that he has found a bit of success against the Texans Defense over his career. In four career games, he is averaging about four catches for 57 yards, and a touchdown per game. There are other offensive options ahead of Pascal, so fantasy owners in deeper leagues can feel mostly comfortable in leaving him on the bench this week.
Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the division-rival Broncos. Edwards-Helaire has missed practice each of the last two days and is in danger of sitting out on Sunday. Making things more difficult for fantasy managers, the Chiefs-Broncos game is on Sunday night. His fantasy managers would like to see him get more touches, but there are just too many explosive offensive weapons in KC. He'd be a solid RB2 this weekend if he's active against a Broncos Defense allowing the most rushing yards per game in the last five weeks, but you'll need to have backup options ready in case he can't go. Le'Veon Bell would be an excellent plug-and-play RB2 if CEH misses the Sunday night clash with Denver. The rookie had eight carries for 46 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Broncos in Week 7.
