NFL training camps are in full swing with league-wide preseason action ready to commence later this week. Better still, the official start of the regular season is a little more than a month away, which means this is a perfect time to update Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Big Board.
With just Cleveland and Tennessee on bye in Week 13, fantasy owners shouldn’t have to dig too deep into their rosters to put together a starting lineup. However, this is still a pivotal week, as for most leagues it’s the last one before the playoffs. So in a win-and-you’re-in situation, lineup decisions are more important than ever.
For most fantasy leagues, Week 13 is the last week of the regular season, meaning for some it could all come down to this weekend. So with even more pressure on those key start/sit decisions, let’s set the table for Week 13 by seeing how appetizing my Week 12 advice for wide receivers and tight ends turned out.
Week 13 is the last of the bye weeks and means those fantasy owners who have DeMarco Murray or Isaiah Crowell will have to look elsewhere to fill out their running back slots. So who should you trust to carry the load for your fantasy team this week? Before we look at Week 13, let’s take a quick peek back to see how my Week 12 start/sit advice played out.
There’s no Marcus Mariota for Week 13, but fantasy owners will hopefully get Andrew Luck back and others like Aaron Rodgers and Derek Carr are no worse for the wear after getting banged up in Week 12. But aside from those studs, which quarterbacks should you start and which should you consider leaving on your bench?
Another week and once again Le’Veon Bell, David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliot are fighting it out to see who will be the No. 1-ranked fantasy running back for Week 13. Between matchups and bodies of work, you can’t go wrong if you are fortunate to have one of these studs on your team.
Flex rankings for Week 13, which may be the most critical week for many fantasy owners, are slightly important. Who am I kidding? I am nervous making these as I write this and will definitely be making changes to these leading up to game time on Sunday.
