As the NFL season nears its end, the best teams will begin to show their teeth and bite into inferior competition.

In fantasy football, the top teams put up touchdowns, yards and high-point outbursts. It’s not as easy to project as the fantasy playoffs approach.

A few offenses have fortunate matchups in Week 13 to have big fantasy days. For those who went all-in with one of these offenses on their fantasy squad, you just hit fantasy gold in Week 13.

See which teams will be racking up touchdowns all Sunday long.

Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan and the Falcon passing game, meet the New Orleans Saints. They’re only giving up the most points to fantasy quarterbacks in 2012.

While Ryan owners rejoice, so should those who have Roddy White, Julio Jones, Tony Gonzalez and Jacquizz Rodgers. This game has all the makings of a high-scoring shootout in which every offensive player will get plenty of opportunities to shine.

Drew Brees should be able to keep the game interesting on his end to keep this game fantasy-relevant for the Falcons players. Thursday should end with some lopsided fantasy scores for owners to stare at for the lull up to Sunday.

On the defensive side of the ball, it would be wise to keep the Falcons out of your lineup. Trust me on this one.

Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have all the pieces for a potent fantasy offense: A star-studded passing tandem with a supporting cast that can get the tough yards. The unit will be in fantasy heaven at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy owners: Set your lineups accordingly.

The Colts defense has been able to stay a secret at home, but it has shown its true colors on the road. Indy has given up 35, 41 and 59 points outside of its building, and one of those games was against the lowly Jets offense.

Think Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson aren’t licking their chops already? Come Sunday, this offense is going to party like it’s 2011.

Dallas Cowboys

The Eagles defense has gone under after Juan Castillo was fired about a month ago, as the Eagles have given up over 26 points in their past six games.

The Cowboys have been anything but saints at home, failing to perform up to expectations in “Jerry’s House,” but this Sunday night will be an exception. The Cowboys have already figured out the Eagles after a 38-23 romping three weeks ago.

Tony Romo and Co. will continue their offensive ways in their second meeting, as the Eagles defense continues to unravel. Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, Jason Witten and Felix Jones are all must-starts for Week 13.

Don’t miss out on the fantasy points party in Big D.
