Fantasy Sleepers of Week 13: Jamaal Williams, Boston Scott between possible breakups with favorable matchups

Four teams are free, so all leagues will have some looking for replacements for Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Nick Chubb and DJ Moore, among others. Circumstances could certainly be worse when it comes to a week with so many players out of action, but it’s important to continue to find week-long answers to complete your lineups as we head into the fantasy playoffs. As always, we are here to help you identify specific hidden values ​​for this week. Whether it’s with players on your roster or those sitting on the waiver wire, there are always guys, like Jamaal Williams and Boston Scott, with a sneaky edge ready to step into their rosters and be on our fantasy sleeper roster. Week 13.

It is worth noting that any of our selections could bust this week, but might as well the real studs. We are taking a chance here, as we don’t want to say that no one is too obvious. A list of easy options would do no one any good. You’re not going to start with the guys below with proven, consistent producers, but you’re probably not looking for fantasy sleepers if your lineup is established. However, even if that’s the case, our sleeper list can help you find value in DFS contests, as these players’ prices should be affordable.

WEEK 13 FANTASY: Busts | Get started, feel them

He’s happy if he started some of our Week 12 picks, including Mac Jones, Dontrelle Hilliard, Cedrick Wilson, Gerald Everett and the Steelers defense. If you took our advice and started Cam Newton, Devonta Freeman, Ty Johnson, Marvin Jones, or Austin Hooper, sorry, but that’s the nature of trying to pick sleepers. We had other guys fall right in the middle of failure and an acceptable performance, so it was a pretty balanced effort.

Week 13 Fantasy Sleepers: Runners

Boston Scott, Eagles @ Jets (Jackson Sparks). The Eagles will return to their ground and pound attack, and with Jordan Howard (knee) likely to miss another game, Scott will continue to work alongside Miles Sanders (ankle) against a defense that gives up the most fantasy points per game. (FPPG) to the RBs. Don’t be surprised if there are multiple Philadelphia runners with double-digit fantasy points.

Matt Breida, Bills vs. Patriots (Vinnie Iyer). Buffalo should have followed suit from Tennessee’s racing approach last week against a tough New England pass defense and nurtured their best new all-around option.

Jamaal Williams, Lions vs. Vikings (Matt Lutovsky). Williams was averaging about 13 touches per game when D’Andre Swift (shoulder) was healthy; imagine what he will do with the backfield for himself. Detroit will mix in other running backs, but Williams should convert his 15-20 touches into close to 100 total yards against Minnesota’s 30th rushing defense.

Week 13 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Quarterbacks

Derek Carr, Raiders vs. Washington (Sparks). Washington is the worst defense against fantasy quarterbacks, so this could be another 300+ yard passing day for Carr. Even though Russell Wilson apparently battled Washington, he still scored 19 fantasy points with 247 passing yards and two touchdowns. That almost feels like the ground for Carr here, so let’s go with it.

Matt Ryan, Falcons vs. Buccaneers (Iyer). Matty Ice should thaw a bit on Hotlanta as he’s behind for some warm high-volume digits to make up for his team’s lack of expected success, but he’s likely to live with more turnovers.

Tyrod Taylor, Texans vs. Colts (Lutovsky). Taylor hasn’t been particularly sharp in his three games since returning from injury, but he did score multiple TDs in each of his last two games. He has also rushed at least 23 yards in every game, slightly raising his floor. The Colts allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to quarterbacks, and considering that Houston probably won’t be able to run at all, Taylor should have plenty of opportunities to score points.

Week 13 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide Receivers

Rashod Bateman, Ravens @ Steelers (Sparks). This is not the Steelers defense of years past. It allows the 10th more FPPG to WR and has been set ablaze by Tee Higgins, Darnell Mooney, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in recent weeks. Keep in mind, those are not all number one WRs. Pittsburgh might limit a team’s best option, but there will be room for Bateman to eat here.

Kenny Golladay, Giants at Dolphins (Iyer). A trade from QB to Mike Glennon with Daniel Jones (neck) hurt could fire Golladay downfield for a big play in what could come in a garbage time.

Jauan Jennings, 49ers @ Seahawks (Lutovsky). Jennings caught two of three passes for 24 yards and a TD last week, and with Deebo Samuel (groin) out, Jennings will see more playing time. The Seahawks are ranked 31st in passing defense, so Jennings will have a chance to pay off this week.

Week 13 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight Endings

Foster Moreau, Raiders vs. Washington (Sparks). Darren Waller (knee) is likely out, and this offense likes to have tight ends anyway. When Waller was out against the Eagles, Moreau caught six passes for 60 yards and a touchdown, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him produce a similar line against Washington. Washington’s defense is a middle unit against the TEs, but has largely avoided the league’s best players at the position. Last week, Gerald Everett caught five passes for 37 yards and a touchdown when he faced the football team, so we are not afraid of the showdown.

Jack Doyle, Colts at Texans (Iyer). Everyone’s favorite private detective will detect the end zone again and continue to feel it with Carson Wentz.

CJ Uzomah, Bengals vs. Chargers (Lutovsky). Uzomah has been the definition of “boom or bust” this year. It has had a boom only three times, but two of those booms have been efforts to win a week. He could have another one of those this week against a Chargers defense that allows the fourth-most FPPG to the TEs.

Week 13 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Defense

Philadelphia Eagles @ Jets (Sparks). The Eagles are playing the Jets, who are allowing the third-most FFPG to D / STs. Need we say more?

Minnesota Vikings at Lions (Iyer). Mike Zimmer’s defense has been playing like it was coached by an absent-minded guy dating a Maxim model, but everyone’s doing well in Detroit against hard-hitting leos.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Broncos (Lutovsky). In the past four games, the Chiefs averaged 11.8 offensive points allowed, two takes to go and 2.8 sacks per game. Against a Broncos team that allows the ninth FPPG to pass to D / STs, a rested and ready Chiefs defense should have a solid day.
