Fantasy Football 2017: Week 13 Start / Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 13
November 30, 2017
It’s Thursday again, and that means Week 13 in the NFL begins this evening. It also means it’s time once again for our weekly Start/Sit recommendations. Let’s visit with a few borderline calls and see what we could be in for this week.
USA TODAY Sports
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets: It’s been a while since we’ve seen a competent fantasy quarterback with the Jets, but McCown has been holding his own lately.
In his last six games, McCown is averaging 19.6 fantasy points, and he’s also averaging 20.1 points in his last four home games, where he’ll be in a favorable matchup against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers: It’s tough to trust an RB in Green Bay these days, however Williams has been getting a ton of work lately.
Williams ranks fourth in the league among RBs in snaps and in touches over the last two outings. that should bode well for his chances in a favorable matchup against the Bucs this week.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams: Kupp is getting lots of fantasy attention right now thanks to a career-high 19.6 PPR points last week.
Kupp has a good matchup this week against the Cardinals. Arizona has given up an average of 18.2 PPR points to slot receivers this year.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers: It will be tough for owners to sit Roethlisberger this week, as he’s got eight touchdowns and almost 60 fantasy points over his last two weeks.
Those who have followed Roethlisberger’s career know that he doesn’t play all that well in Cincinnati, where he’ll be this week. The Bengals have held him to one or zero TD passes in nine of 13 road meetings over his career.
Jay Ajayi, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: Ajayi has spent three games as a member of Philly, so we’ve got a decent sample size to draw from.
It’s tough to rely on Ajayi right now, thanks to him getting just 25 percent of the snaps and 7.3 touches per game on average. He’s also got a bad matchup against Seattle and probably won’t post good numbers.
TY Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts: It’s time to cut ties with Hilton. Even with a good matchup last week he crashed and burned on the stat sheet.
Hilton gets a bad matchup against the Jaguars this week, and Jacksonville has allowed zero touchdowns to wide receivers at home this year.
