NFL Week 13 Predictions: Projecting the Top Fantasy Football Performers
We've finally arrived at Week 13 of the NFL season. At this moment, your team is either in the playoffs, fighting for a spot or totally out of it. Let's hope for everyone that it's one of those first two options. If you're in need of a win this week, there are some great matchups to exploit.
So, here are the top fantasy football players at each position for the all-important Week 13.
1. Aaron Rodgers, QB
Aaron Rodgers could very well be the top fantasy performer in Week 13. Rodgers has been a great QB all year for his owners, and his matchup against the Vikings should be one that has his owners salivating.
Rodgers doesn't really have bad fantasy games, and considering the fact that Green Bay only has two rushing TDs all year, the Packers will be airing it out in this one. Expect big things out of Rodgers in this matchup.
2. Arian Foster, RB
Arian Foster has been an elite RB all year, and in some leagues, he is the No. 1 overall fantasy player. Foster's Texans are matched up against a Tennessee defense that's struggled all year against the run. Foster should tear up the Titans' defense and have a nice day.
If you have Foster this week and are fighting for a playoff spot, you're going to be in good shape. If you're going up against him, best of luck to you.
3. A.J. Green, WR
What can you say about A.J. Green? Green's come up huge all year and is a borderline top-10 overall fantasy player, something that's very impressive for a second-year wide receiver.
In Week 13, Green is going up against the lowly San Diego defense as well, which certainly helps his case to be the best WR option in Week 13. Green's not going to let you down; don't be surprised if he has somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 points.
4. Jason Witten, TE
Jason Witten is arguably the most consistent fantasy player of the past decade. He never gets hurt, and he's always putting up solid numbers for his owners. Next Sunday night, Witten matches up against the Eagles in a game that the Cowboys absolutely need to win if they have any hope of making the playoffs.
Witten has a history of coming up big in crucial games, and I fully expect him to play well on Sunday. Start him with confidence; he won't let you down.
