Fantasy Football: Dwayne Bowe, Sam Bradford and The Must-Starts Of Week 13

0 of 5

    With the 2010-11 NFL season coming to an end, every player and team will be performing at their highest-level in the final weeks in search of a post-season birth.

    The following players had an outstanding Thanksgiving Weekend, giving fantasy owners all over something to be thankful for.

    In Week 13 these players will continue to dominate, racking up fantasy points and leading their teams to victory.

QB Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears

1 of 5

    Last Week's Performance:

    Vs. Philadelphia Eagles: 14-21 for 247 Yards and 4 TD's; 7 Rushes for 17 Yards

    In Week 12, Jay Cutler had his best performance of the 2010-11' season  recording 27.58 fantasy points.  Cutler did this against a pretty solid Philadelphia Eagles defense who only gives up an average of 214 YPG.  

    Against the 18th ranked passing defense of the Detroit Lions this Sunday, Cutler should have a similar performance.


    Week 13 Opponent:

    At Detroit Lions (2-9)

FB Mike Tolbert, San Diego Chargers

2 of 5

    Last Week's Performance:

    At Indianapolis Colts: 26 attempts for 103 yards and 1 TD; 2 receptions for 15 yards


    You rarely see fullbacks recording a significant amount of yards, but Mike Tolbert has become a dangerous force in San Diego's running game.  This past weekend Tolbert earned his third 100-yard performance of the season, and has now recorded a touchdown in eight of eleven games this season.  

    Tolbert took advantage of the 30th ranked rushing defense of the Indianapolis Colts, who give up an average of 136.0 YPG.  If you own Tolbert be sure to start him in the following weeks, seeing increased touches while showing he can consistently perform at a high level for the San Diego Chargers.


    Week 13 Opponent:

    Vs. Oakland Raiders (5-6)

RB Peyton Hillis, Cleveland Browns

3 of 5

    Last Week's Performance:

    Vs. Carolina Panthers: 26 attempts for 131 yards and 3 TD's; 6 receptions for 63 yards


    Last week Peyton Hillis had one of the most explosive performances of any player this season, recording 37.40 fantasy points.  Hillis ran for over 100 yards for the fourth time this season, earning the first three-touchdown rushing performance of his career.  

    In the last four games Peyton Hillis has scored a total of seven touchdowns.  


    Week 13 Opponent:

    Vs. Miami Dolphins (6-5)

QB Sam Bradford, St. Louis Rams

4 of 5

    Last Week's Performance:

    At Denver Broncos: 22-37, 308 yards, 3 TD's and a 113.3 QB Rating


    Last week against the Denver Broncos, the rookie out of Oklahoma had the best game of his very young career.  Bradford scored 24.22 fantasy points for his owners, and led the St. Louis Rams to a crucial 36-33 victory.


    Week 13 Opponent:

    At Arizona Cardinals (3-7)

WR Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs

5 of 5

    Last Week's Performance:

    At Seattle Seahawks: 13 receptions for 170 yards and three touchdowns


    Dwayne Bowe is having a Pro-Bowl caliber season, scoring 13 touchdowns in the last seven games.  

    In Week 10 Bowe exampled how productive he could really be making 13 receptions for 186 yards and two touchdowns.  

    This past week he had a similar performance, recording 35.00 fantasy points, proving that he has the potential to be a consistent weapon on a weekly basis. 

    Expect Dwayne Bowe to have another explosive performance in Week 13, against the 20th overall ranked passing defense of the Denver Broncos.  


    Week 13 Opponent:

    Vs. Denver Broncos (3-8)
