Fantasy Football Week 13 Rankings: Position-by-Position Breakdown

In the words of the immortal Tom Petty: "Even the losers get lucky sometimes."

Conversely, even the winners can draft a team full of underachievers and miss the fantasy football playoffs. Most of us know which group we belong to at this point in the season.

Week 13 is the final week of the regular season for many fantasy leagues. That means many of you are in desperate need of a win this week and are scrounging around for any advice you can get.

I’d like to offer my assistance.

But first, here’s a look at some of the most interesting storylines from last weekend’s action:

-DeSean Jackson fractured multiple ribs in the Eagles’ 30-22 loss to the Panthers Monday night, prompting his fantasy owners to say, “Wait, he was playing this season?”

-Fireman Ed is no longer supporting the New York Jets. The team was shocked to know they actually had a fan prior to last week.

-Rashard Mendenhall started against the Browns and proceeded to fumble almost immediately. Four Steelers running backs coughed up the football in Week 12, but apparently Mike Tomlin still has faith in Jonathan Dwyer. He’s been named the team’s Week 13 starter.

-Aldon Smith will likely break Reggie White’s record for most sacks in the first two seasons of an NFL career (31). He also has a shot at Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record this year. Smith is an electric pass-rusher and a superstar in the making.

-Ndamukong Suh is back at it. There are differing opinions about Suh’s intent on this play against the Houston Texans last Thursday, but it looks pretty cut-and-dry to me. Suh is lucky Jim Schwartz didn’t try to challenge the play.

-The Green Bay Packers took a rare beatdown from the Giants in Week 12. If I were a betting man, I’d put a lot of money on the Packers this week. They haven’t lost two games in a row in two years.

Anyway, enough of the random musings. On to the rankings we go.
