The Falcons quarterback should put up big numbers against the Texans
I’m going with Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan as a confident start in Week 13 at Houston.
It’s a tough matchup. Ryan’s got injuries on his side of the ball; the Texans are tough on the defensive side of the ball. But Ryan will come through for you this week as a starting fantasy QB in 12-team leagues.
The Rams running back will be shut down today against San Francisco
Sit St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson this week at San Francisco. There’s nothing that leans in Jackson’s favor in Week 13 — he’s going up against the NFL’s best rush defense and is doing so having not rushed for over 64 yards the last two weeks or having scored in the last month.
Pittsburgh's wide receiver will shine today against Cincinnati
Pittsburgh receiver Antonio Brown’s targets have dropped off in recent weeks, but in PPR leagues he continues to be a great flex play. I see him pushing for top-12 receiver status in Week 13 against AFC North rival Cincinnati at Heinz Field.
The Colts running back won't do what he did last week
I said last week Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown was a good flex play against the Carolina Panthers terrible run defense. Brown produced with a 16.2-point fantasy day against Carolina, just his second double-digit fantasy day of the season.
