  18. Jameis Winston, @GB
  19. Trevor Semien @MIA
  20. Andy Dalton, vs. PIT


Marcus Mariota’s recent history is ugly, but the Texans secondary has been equally ugly this season. This is a get right spot for him, and though it takes some guts to play him in a big Week 13 matchup, I’d be willing to turn to him.


  1.  Le’Veon Bell, @CIN
  2. Jordan Howard, vs. SF
  3. Melvin Gordon,  vs. CLE
  4. Leonard Fournette, vs. IND

  8. LeSean McCoy, vs. NE
  9. Dion Lewis, @BUF
  10. Mark Ingram, vs. CAR
  11. Latavius Murray, @ATL
  12. Lamar Miller, @TEN
  13. Marshawn Lynch, @NO
  14. Alex Collins, vs. DET
  15. Kenyan Drake, vs. DEN
  16. Kareem Hunt, @NYJ
  17. Joe Mixon, vs. PIT
  18. Adrian Peterson, vs. LAR
  19. Christian McCaffery, @NO
  20. Isaiah Crowell, @LAC
  21. Jamaal Williams, vs. TB
  22. Devonta Freeman, vs. MIN
  23. DeMarco Murray, vs. HOU
  24. Rex Burkhead, @BUF
  25. Devontae Booker, @MIA
  26. Duke Johnson, @LAC
  27. Tevin Coleman, vs.MIN
  28. Jerick McKinnon, @ATL
  29. Orleans Darkwa, @OAK
  30. Frank Gore, @JAC


Marshawn Lynch finally got a chance with a full workload, and now that both Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper are missing this week, the Raiders should turn to the run game. The Giants are a mess all around, so the matchup is not a concern.


  1. Antonio Brown, @CIN
  2. DeAndre Hopkins, @TEN
  3. Keenan Allen, vs. CLE
    4. Mike Evans, @GB
  4. Julio Jones, vs. MIN
  5. A.J. Green, vs. PIT
  6. Brandin Cooks, @BUF
  7. Michael Thomas, vs. CAR
  8. Davante Adams, vs. TB
  9. Adam Thielen, @ATL
  10. Doug Baldwin, vs. PHI
  11. Robby Anderson, vs. KC
  12. Devin Funchess, @NO
  13. 14.Alshon Jeffery, @SEA
  14. Tyreek Hill, @NYJ
  15. Stefon Diggs, @ATL
  16. Emmanuel Sanders, @MIA
  17. Cooper Kupp, @ARI
  18. Marqise Lee, vs. IND
  19. Jarvis Landry, vs. DEN
  20. Marvin Jones, @BAL
  21. DeSean Jackson, @GB
  22. Ted Ginn, vs. CAR
  23. Demaryius Thomas, @MIA
  24. Golden Tate, @BAL
  25. Sterling Shepard, @OAK
  26. Larry Fitzgerald, vs. LAR
  27. Mohamed Sanu, vs.MIN
  28. Corey Davis, HOU (If Rishard Matthews is out)
  29. Mike Wallace, vs. DET
  30. Randall Cobb, vs. TB
  31. DeVante Parker, vs. DEN
  32. Nelson Agholor, @SEA
  33. Cordarrelle Patterson, vs. NYG
  34. Dontrelle Inman, vs. SF
  35. Juju Smith-Schuster,@CIN


Randall Cobb is an intriguing play thanks to the porous Buccaneers secondary. He has been steady in producing around 50 yards on four catches, meaning he only needs to find the end zone to be a viable FLEX or WR3 option.


  1. Rob Gronkowski, @BUF
  2. Zach Ertz, @SEA
  3. Delanie Walker, vs. HOU
  4. Travis Kelce, @NYJ
  5. Jared Cook, vs. NYG
  6. Hunter Henry, vs. CLE
  7. Jimmy Graham, vs. PHI
  8. Evan Engram, @OAK
  9.  Kyle Rudolph, @ ATL
  10. Julius Thomas, vs. DEN
  11. Jack Doyle, @JAC
  12. Charles Clay, vs. NE
  13. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, vs. KC
  14. Austin Hooper, vs. MIN
  15. Tyler Kroft, vs. PIT
  16. Eric Ebron, @BAL
  17. Ben Watson, vs. DET
  18. Ricky Seals-Jones, vs. LAR
  19. Cameron Brate, @GB
  20. Marcedes Lewis, vs. INd


Delanie Walker is an elite tight end option this week, especially if Rishard Matthews is unable to play. He has gotten consistent targets and turned that into production in recent weeks, which is enough to be an elite play at the position despite what some may think.

As for a streamer, Julius Thomas is an interesting play this week. The Broncos defense will be without several key players (Domata Peko, Derrick Wolfe, and Aqib Talib) which should give the Dolphins a chance to put points on the board.
