  1. Greg Zuerlein – LA Rams – at Detroit
  2. Will Lutz – New Orleans Saints – at Dallas
  3. Ka’imi Fairbairn – Houston Texans – vs. Cleveland
  4. Harrison Butker – Kansas City Chiefs – at Oakland

Now that the bye weeks are over and the playoffs are just about upon us, for some Week 13 is the “first” week as they look to advance to the second season. You can afford to play the match-up game, not only for this week but for the next three or four weeks if necessary.

  1. LA Rams – at Detroit
  2. Kansas City Chiefs – at Oakland

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor)

Injuries…  Injuries…  Injuries…  That’s been the narrative, especially as of late, as fantasy owners learned that Jack Doyle had been lost for the season (as well as Jeff Heuerman) while Evan Engram could also remain sidelined.  Throw in all of the previous injuries we’ve dealt with, for a position that’s already relatively shallow, and there are quite a few owners who are scraping the bottom of the barrel.  Who are the options to trust?  Let’s take a look:

  1. Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs – at Oakland
  2. Zack Ertz – Philadelphia Eagles – vs. Washington
  3. Eric Ebron – Indianapolis Colts – at Jacksonville
  4. Rob Gronkowski – New England Patriots – vs. Minnesota
  5. Greg Olsen – Carolina Panthers – at Tampa Bay
  6. Jared Cook – Oakland Raiders – vs. Kansas City
  7. George Kittle – San Francisco 49ers – at Seattle Read more

Week 12 Rankings (2018): Top 15 Defenses

by Ray Kuhn

I know they are on bye this week, but despite allowing over 50 points the Rams were still one of the better defensive plays last week. That isn’t what we expected or ranked, but multiple turnovers and touchdowns will do that. What’s even crazier is the fact that their opponent (losing) was the Chiefs, who put up the second most points of the week. Along the same lines let’s take a look at how our options for this week rank:

  1. Baltimore Ravens – vs. Oakland
  2. Chicago Bears – at Detroit
  3. LA Chargers – vs. Arizona
  4. Houston Texans – vs. Tennessee
  5. Cincinnati Bengals – vs. Cleveland
  6. Washington Redskins – at Dallas
  7. Detroit Lions – vs. Chicago Read more

Week 12 Rankings (2018): Top 15 Kickers

by Ray Kuhn

The fact that it was a relatively quiet week at the kicker position is a good thing. In the nicest way possible we want our kickers to be seen, but not heard. Go out there when called upon, produce and call it a day. Let’s take a look at how our options rank for this week when it comes to the much adored kicker position:

  1. Will Lutz – New Orleans Saints – vs. Atlanta
  2. Brett Maher – Dallas Cowboys – vs. Washington
  3. Ka’imi Fairbairn – Houston Texans – vs. Tennessee
  4. Stephen Gostkowski – New England Patriots – at NY Jets
  5. Justin Tucker – Baltimore Ravens – vs. Oakland
  6. Mason Crosby – Green Bay Packers – at Minnesota

Week 12 Rankings (2018): Top 40 Running Backs

by Ray Kuhn

We made it through Week 11 (hopefully) with six teams on bye. Things get easier this week as there are just two teams on bye, but the problem is that they are the Rams and Chiefs. Also some roster decisions are going to be a slightly accelerated as there are three games on Thursday. With that being said let’s jump right into this week’s rankings:

  2. Ezekiel Elliot – Dallas Cowboys – vs. Washington
  3. Saquon Barkley – NY Giants – at Philadelphia
