Another week of NFL football is on the horizon. Many fantasy footballers’ seasons may be over, but for those whose season is still going, I’m here for you. If you play daily fantasy football, I’m here for you. The season is on the horizon of its three-quarter mark, and after that, we all get to enjoy football without getting angry at one another because your team is losing. So let’s just jump right into my top picks for fantasy football.

Week 13 Fantasy Predictions: Best Players At Each Position

Top 3 QBs

Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers

Rodgers is one of those QB’s that can throw for 250+ yards and still get 25+ points because he’ll throw for 4 touchdowns against no interceptions. I think this week, Rodgers will throw for more than 300 yards and put the nail in the coffin for an Eagles team that has been lackluster all year.

Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals

The current fantasy point leader, Murray will lead the Cardinals in a pivotal divisional game with the Rams on Sunday. If the Cardinals want any chance of staying in this game and winning, Murray is going to need to protect the football and have success through the air and on the ground. Both plausible this Sunday.

Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks will take on the Giants at home this week, and the Giants surprisingly have played most teams tough this year despite their (4-7) record. I think Wilson this week will find the endzone multiple times and maybe find a score on the ground.

Top 3 RBs

Derrick Henry – Tennessee Titans

Henry and the Titans take on the Browns this week at home. While the Browns have a good record to show for, they have struggled against teams that are above a .500 record. I expect the Titans to ride the wave of Henry this week and see him go for 150+ yards.

Nick Chubb – Cleveland Browns

On the flip side of the matchup between the Browns and Titans, we have an RB who will try to lead his to a victory in Week 13. Chubb has amassed 100+ yards in three straight games since returning from injury. His fantasy value will rely on this but also his ability to get in the endzone.

Miles Sanders – Philadelphia Eagles

Sanders is one of the only bright spots on an Eagles team that is desperate for a win. Sanders has only reached the top 3 once this year and that was back in Week 5. The Eagles have a tough matchup with the Packers this week but they should lean on Sanders if they want a chance to win this game.

Top 6 WRs

Michael Pittman Jr. – Indianapolis Colts

Pittman has had a quiet rookie year due to injury and a lack of explosiveness by the Colts’ offense. This week in Houston though, I think he’ll have an opportunity to have a big day. The Colts will be looking to gain traction for a division title and Pittman should play a pivotal role in this week’s matchup.

Brandin Cooks – Houston Texans

Cooks will look to be called on for the remainder of the season with the absence of Will Fuller. He’s amassed 80+ yards in three of the last four contests, but I expect him to have his best showing of the year this week.

Stefon Diggs – Buffalo Bills

The Bills take on the injury-riddled 49ers this week. Problem is, the 49ers are playing better than many people expected. In steps Diggs, who I think should have a big week. Though he’ll most likely be shadowed by Richard Sherman, I think the young receiver will have his opportunities to get open and score.

Jarvis Landry – Cleveland Browns

Jarvis is arguably the only real receiving threat that the Browns possess on their active roster right now. He showed last week why he is one of the most reliable slot receivers in the league. Look for Baker Mayfield to look his way early and often in the passing game.

Adam Thielen – Minnesota Vikings

In five of his 10 games this year, Thielen has gone over 20+ points in each of those games. The Vikings host a Jaguars team that has played decent as of late but is still very susceptible on defense. Look for Kirk Cousins and Thielen to have continued success this week.

Davante Adams – Green Bay Packers

One of the best fantasy receivers this year, Adams will get a favorable matchup this week vs. the Eagles. He’ll most likely be shadowed by Darius Slay, but that shouldn’t worry fantasy owners after seeing what D.K. Metcalf did on MNF.

Top 3 TEs

Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs

In the Chiefs first meeting with the Broncos, Kelce had his lowest performance at 6.10 points. I do not expect that to happen the second go around. Look for Kelce to have another big week like he’s had many times this year.

Darren Waller – Las Vegas Raiders

The Raiders are on the road vs. the Jets this week. After last week’s dismal performance in Atlanta, I expect the Raiders offense to put up points. I expect Waller to go for over 100+ yards and secure a TD.

T.J. Hockenson – Detroit Lions

With Kenny Golladay set to miss another game, Hockenson should be set for more added attention from Matthew Stafford. The sure-handed second-year man is a top 3 fantasy TE this year and will look to continue that production by finding the endzone.

Top 3 Kickers

Younghoe Koo – Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons are playing the Saints for the second time in three weeks. While they’ll need touchdowns to win, Koo will be there to provide his firepower in the kicking game.

Jason Sanders – Miami Dolphins

Sanders will be called on more than once for some field goals this week. He’s only missed one kick this year and I expect him to convert every opportunity he gets on Sunday.

Tyler Bass – Buffalo Bills

Bass and the Bills will be on the road in San Francisco this week. The way the 49ers have played recently, this game could come down to a game-winning field goal and I think it could be Bass booming it through.

Top 3 DEF/STs

Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins will be hosting the Bengals this week. Brandon Allen didn’t play that well vs. the Giants and I expect the Dolphins to get after him early and often.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks will be taking on a Giants team that will likely be helmed by Colt McCoy. I don’t think I have to say much more as the journeyman didn’t look good vs. the Bengals defense.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Broncos quarterback room looks to return this week. That shouldn’t matter as the Chiefs will look to smother whoever steps out there for the Broncos.
