Fantasy Football Update 11/30/16: Week 13 Start / Sit Picks
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy This Week
November 30, 2016
It’s a fantasy football Wednesday, and around here that means it’s time for our weekly Start-Sit recommendations. This edition is for Week 13, and if you’re still in the running in your league chances are you’ll have a few big lineup decisions to make. Let’s see if we can help with those borderline calls.

Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco 49ers: Kaepernick is a popular sleeper pickup this week, and he’s been surging lately. He’s got at least 19 fantasy points in four straight games, and is coming off breaking 30 last week.
Kaepernick gets a good matchup this week against the Bears, who are giving up consistent fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks these days.
Jordan Howard, RB, Chicago Bears: On the other side of that 49ers-Bears matchup this week is Howard, who is definitely worth a start as well.
Howard bagged 12.7 fantasy points last week against the Titans, and could easily have had more. He gets a great setup against a Niners D that has allowed the most fantasy points in the league to opposing running backs.
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks: If you started Baldwin last week, chances are you’re still feeling the sting. Seattle’s entire offense stunk up the joint Sunday in a loss to the Bucs.
That said, Baldwin’s stock isn’t looking too bad this week, as he’s going into a solid matchup against the Panthers, who have allowed the sixth-most yards in the league to opposing wide receivers.
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals: If you’re toying with the idea of giving Dalton a start in what looks like a decent matchup this week against the Eagles, you’d better think again.
With no AJ Green (in all likelihood), Dalton will be lost, just like he was last week with just 12.7 fantasy points. Tyler Eifert is good, but not good enough to pull Dalton out of the funk he’s likely to be in for the rest of the year.
Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers: Likewise, you might be tempted to start Stewart this week, following his monster performance against the Raiders. He scored twice and managed 21.6 fantasy points in that one.
Don’t expect a repeat outing here, though. Stewart draws a bad matchup against the Seahawks, who are averaging just 14.9 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs.
Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers: There was a time when Cobb was an automatic start in fantasy, but those days are gone. Inconsistency plagues the Green Bay offense as a whole.
Cobb isn’t getting off easy against the Texans this week. Houston has given up just eight touchdown catches to opposing wide receivers.
