Julio Jones had by far his best game of the season last week with 253 receiving yards and two TDs
Believe it or not, but Week 13 of the fantasy football season is upon us. Just like that the fantasy playoffs are right around the corner as owners are either making their last push for to get in or looking to solidify their roster and chase that coveted league title.
Besides flying by, the season also has seen plenty of changes over the past 12 weeks. For example, bac in Week 4, Kareem Hunt was the must-have player that people were putting in the same category as Le’Veon Bell while Alvin Kamara was just a flashy, third-down back with upside. Fast-forward to the present and Hunt owners are scratching their heads while Kamara owners are rightfully giddy.
The Giants’ season has been in a tailspin once they lost Odell Beckham Jr., but now with the news of Eli Manning getting benched it seems New York truly has hit rock bottom. Manning’s numbers certainly weren’t great, but a switch to Geno Smith or Davis Webb won’t make any of the Giants’ weapons must-starts.
Last week, Antonio Brown, Julio Jones and Keenan Allen put on clinics as to what elite wide receivers can do. The difference is Brown does it literally every week while Jones has been consistent, but not dominant like he was in Week 12. As for this week, Allen has best matchup which is why he’s ranked above Jones, who is facing the Vikings’ stout secondary.
Again, for most leagues this is the final week of the regular season and for some the playoffs have already started. Either way, it’s crunch time as every game from here out truly matters.
