Here we are just about to enter into Week 13 of the NFL and fantasy season, where has the time gone? Also, Week 13 happens to be the last chance a lot of you will have to make the fantasy playoffs (in most leagues).

On paper, some matchups like DeAngelo Williams against Indianapolis and Darren McFadden against Washington should help some backs who have been struggling some of late get back on track. Devonta Freeman owners hope to have their workhorse back this week against Tampa Bay, but that doesn't mean Tevin Coleman won't get his opportunities either. And after showing good legs against Chicago Thanksgiving night, can Eddie Lacy keep things going against Detroit on Thursday?
