Fantasy Football 2013 Quarterback Rankings: Week 13

Quarterbacks playing conference opponents for a second time this season spearhead the top three on Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 13 rankings at the position this week.

Detroit’s Matthew Stafford is atop the quarterback ranks, having thrown for multiple touchdowns the last three games and in five of the last six. His last game under 22 points was Week 5 at NFC North rival Green Bay (16.4) — this week’s opponent.

It was just two weeks ago that Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos handed the Kansas City Chiefs their first loss. Manning had his lowest-scoring outing of the season against the AFC West rival (18.9), and followed it up last week with a new low — 16 at New England.  The Chiefs followed up limiting Manning to under 20 by surrendering over 33 points to another AFC West rival last week — San Diego’s Philip Rivers.

Carolina's Cam Newton had 31.8 points against Tampa Bay on the road in Week 8, and is coming off back-to-back games of 22.1 and 32.6 points.

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any website can give you.
