Week 13 is a big one, as bye weeks are done, and we have Thanksgiving Day games on the slate as well. We also have a lot of big named quarterbacks going up against top five pass defenses. Lamar Jackson is one of them, going up against San Francisco. However, Jackson is averaging 27.5 fantasy points per game this season, and his rushing floor is always going to give him an advantage. Dak Prescott is one of the others against Buffalo, who rank third against the pass. Prescott has enjoyed airing it out over 300 yards per game this season, and has 21 passing touchdowns. However the upside seems a bit capped for him this week.

Patrick Mahomes gets the Raiders at home this week, which is an easy call. Mahomes is averaging 21.8 fantasy points per game this season. Some names that have performed average or below average are in great spots this week. Sam Darnold is on the road, but faces Cincinnati. He has exploited some of the poorer passing defenses, and Andy Dalton is also starting against a bottom ten Jets pass defense. Houston ranks 28th against the pass, which is a good spot for Tom Brady to get back on track after a few below average outings.

It was Derrick Henry who had the RB1 week over Christian McCaffrey, which says a lot about what Henry did. He is in another strong spot against Indy, who are below average against the run, but fantasy production says otherwise. Henry is closing in on an excellent second half where he is putting up league winning numbers. Ezekiel Elliott has a plus matchup that might not look like it to the average eye. Buffalo is bottom ten in DVOA against the run, but just haven’t played a lot of talented running backs and offensive lines this season. This will be a test for them. Saquon Barkley has been quiet the last few weeks, but Green Bay’s rush defense is easily one of the better spots to target. They are allowing 125 rushing yards per game, and 4.8 YPC.

Ronald Jones II gets a bump this week against the Jags, who are getting crushed on the ground. They are allowing 142 rushing yards per game, and a whopping 5.4 yards per carry. Miles Sanders is another mid tier name to consider against Miami. His workload has been strong, and it is not a bad spot at all for him. The volume continues to be there for Le’Veon Bell, and Cincinnati is allowing 166 rushing yards per game, and 4.9 yards per attempt.

The Rams season looks lost, and the team as a whole looks lost. It is still worth mentioning that they have one of the top matchups in the passing game this week, where the Cardinals are allowing the most passing touchdowns per game, and allowing 297 yards per game. The Rams offense has fallen off, but they do have the matchup to try and get back into the playoff picture, but they will need some help. Tyreek Hill is back this week, and will go up against a Raiders secondary that was just torched by Darnold and the Jets. Tyreek Hill is one of the top wideouts this week, as he looked to have avoided a hamstring injury. However there is some small risk if he is not full healed, and it acts up again. DJ Chark and Dede Westbrook got major bumps this week, going up against the Buccaneers secondary. They are allowing 289 yards per game, and have allowed 26 touchdowns.

Amari Cooper, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Kenny Golladay are some bigger names that are not sitting where they usually do within the rankings. Cooper is coming off a reception-less game, while Smith-Schuster is going to be back after missing a week. The Browns haven’t allowed a ton of production through the air, and Pittsburgh’s quarterback situation continues to be a mess. The same goes for Detroit, as they couldn’t capitalize against Washington, but also might be rolling out a third string quarterback this week.

The big names are back, and health is starting to get better. Zach Ertz is still the lead dog in PPR leagues, especially given Philadelphia’s state is in shambles in terms of the wideouts. Look for him to rack up plenty of receptions and targets against one of the worst defenses in the league. The Chiefs are fresh off a bye, and will welcome Oakland. The Raiders have allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game. We will need to watch out for Evan Engram, but the Packers have been torched quite a few times by tight ends this season, and George Kittle made his mark last week. With Eric Ebron out for the rest of the season, Jack Doyle is in a good PPR spot, and this week he gets Tennessee, who have allowed the 11th most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends.

Teams allowing the most field goal attempts this season are Cincinnati, Denver, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles Rams, and Baltimore. Detroit, Arizona, Houston, and Philadelphia are a few other teams worth targeting with kickers, as they give up a lot of volume. Teams that give up the least amount of volume are New England, New Orleans, San Francisco, Oakland, and Minnesota. Volume is ultimately what you want each week. Finding kickers on offenses that move the ball is always a plus for fantasy points at the position. Efficiency would come next.

32Oakland@KC5.6

There are plenty of top defenses this week, and we can point to Carolina, who get Washington at home. Somehow they won against Detroit by not scoring an offensive touchdown. The offensive line remains in the bottom half, and there isn’t much firepower to keep up with the Panthers offense. Philadelphia is another top defense this week, going on the road to face Miami. The Eagles will begin a strong stretch of winnable games against below average offenses. Chicago has the short week, but will possibly be facing a third string quarterback. I will be sure to sleep in and miss that game. The Packers are in a get right game against the Giants, and the defense can turn things around after a horrid stretch.
