Key Fantasy questions and answers for week 13
RotoExperts Special for the associated press
WHAT BELOW RADAR PLAYERS HAVE THE BEST POSSIBILITY OF A GREAT GAME IN THIS WEEK?
QB case Broncos Keenum has a very good match against the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Cincinnati sold at least three TDs to QB in four of their last five games, including four at Browns QB Baker Mayfield last week. Keenum launched two TDs against the Steelers in week 12 and last season against Cincinnati launched two TD passes and completed 20 of the 23 passes.
RB dolphins Kenyan Drake has had to deal with a shoulder injury in the last two weeks and has even forced him to stand aside for part of his 12-week match. If Drake plays this week, he is likely to be limited. 35-year-old partner RB Frank Gore laughed at Father Time all season and was quick to run for 5.81 yards per carry (YPC) in the last two weeks. It shows no signs of slowing down, and averages just under 16 years in the last three games. He has not yet scored a TD this season, but he takes on the Bills in week 13 and has surrendered seven TDs to the RBs in the last five games.
The Washington receiver Josh Doctson is finally healthy, and took six passes for 66 yards with Washington QB Colt McCoy in the middle in week 12. McCoy has been targeting Doctson for 10 times and this week he is faced with a bruised Eagles and battered. If Jamison Crowder is forced to skip his eighth consecutive game, he tries to be targeted again by Doctson this week.
Panthers WR D.J. Moore has 15 receptions, 248 yards and a TD in his last two games and takes the Buccaneers in week 13. Tampa Bay is bound for renouncing the third most fantasy point per game (FPPG) to WR and the second receiving TD in the position. If Devin Funchess's irritated back compels him to lose a second consecutive game, Moore should have another productive week.
An already-thin TE fantasy position became even more subtle with Colts Jack Doyle and Broncos Jeff Heuerman both placed in Injured Reserve this week. Jets TE Chris Herndon has provided fantastic two-digit fantasy point holders in four of his last six games in scoring points for receiving points (PPR). Unfortunately, he has a tough match against the Titans, who renounce the minimum FPPG in the position. Matt LaCosse, who replaces Heuerman in Denver, has had three shots for 34 yards and a TD at week 12. He takes Bengals at week 13. They have renounced the second highest number of FPPGs for YOU.
In most seasons, football competitions FANTASY, WEEK 13, IS THE LAST MATCHUP OF THE REGULAR SEASON. WHAT STRATEGY IS BEST SUITABLE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS LATE LINE IN THE SEASON?
In most cases, you should use the same strategy that worked throughout the season. Start your fantastic studs. For example, this is not the week in which to consider the Falcons WR Julio Jones session just because the Ravens are extremely difficult against the WRs. Do not think too much about things.
WHAT ABOUT THE ROSTER?
Your team's roster may contain marginal fantasy players who have been forced to start to line up a competitive team through the previous goodbye weeks. If you no longer want to use those players, replace them with players who could help your team better. The keywords are "marginal fantasy players". You never want to drop a player that your competitors can withdraw from the surrender cable and use against you. Take special care to drop the RBs that are at a wound from becoming the main part of your team.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO MANAGE THE DEFENSES OF THE TEAM THAT GO NEXT?
With almost all the team's defenses that have struggled at some point this season, streaming has been the way to go. The Bears were the best fantasy defense of 2018, but they also gave up more than 30 points for two weeks in a row. If you drop a "marginal player" based on our advice in the previous section, why not replace it with a second defense that has upcoming favorable encounters? For example, the Bills totaled the ninth point among the most fantastic of the defenses. Their next three opponents are the first eight in FPPG authorized to oppose the fantasy defenses. Consider the addition of the Broncos defense, which will take part in the 49ers of week 14 and the Raiders at week 16 (Championship Week). Both opponents are the first five in FPPG authorized to fantasy defenses.
WITH MELVIN GORDON POTENTIALLY AVAILABLE FOR "WEEKS" AND AUSTIN EKELER ALREADY IN THE MOST LAWS, JUSTIN JACKSON HAS ANY VALUE OF FANTASY THIS WEEK?
Even if Jackson should be adopted, unless you play in an extremely deep league, you should avoid putting it into practice. Expect Ekeler to touch Jackson at week 13, but if Ekeler aggravates his neck injury or if Gordon loses more time than expected, Jackson's fantasy value could skyrocket.
WITH JAGUARS RB LEONARD FOURNETTE NEEDS A SUSPENSION OF A GAME, IS CARLOS HYDE A GOOD START OF WEEK 13?
Hyde seems to have a good correspondence with the Colts who gave up 12th most of the FPPGs to the opposing RBs this season, but in the last four games they have limited the RBs to only 3.78 YPC. In the four games of Hyde with the Jaguar he averages only 3.44 YPC and will also have a colleague RB T.J. Yeldon can potentially steal some leads from him as well. If you desperately need a starting RB this week you can bet on Hyde, but it's a risky game.
IS VIKINGS RB DALVIN COOK STARTABLE GOING FORWARD?
Cook has just 29 holdings in the last three games, and averages 2.16 YPC over the last two weeks. Cook's lack of volume suggests that he may not be 100% healthy. Your fantasy season is probably on the line. If you have a more reliable option in RB use it.
