Week 13 of the fantasy football and NFL season is around the corner and there are a ton of postseason implications in play for both.
If you are just outside the playoffs or trying to hold on to a spot this week, you need to make sure your optimal lineup is set to put yourself in the best position to win and score a ton.
Ideally, the way to do that would be to have a few of these guys, who I project will absolutely kill it and rack up a ton of points.
QB – Tim Tebow
The Broncos have the fortune to play the Vikings this week and those that had faith in Tebow and picked him up will be rewarded.
Minnesota is giving up the most points this year to opposing QBs and will make Tebow look like a stud when he is throwing the ball. His rushing yardage and TDs always help.
RB – LeGarrette Blount
Blount has been solid since returning from a knee injury aside from their blowout loss to the Houston Texans, but you know he doesn’t see the field when the team is forced to pass.
Against Carolina, the Buccaneers should keep it close and he is matched up with the worst rushing defense in football. All signs point to a big day for Blount.
WR – Wes Welker
After tailing off and returning to normal the past two weeks, Welker once again went ballistic and caught eight passes for 115 yards and two TDs against the Eagles.
Now he has a juicy matchup against the winless Indianapolis Colts in Week 13.
The Patriots still hate Indianapolis as much as any team that has beat them in the playoffs—with or without Peyton Manning—and are going to try like hell to do their part in making them 0-16.
Look for Welker to benefit with big fantasy numbers.
TE – Scott Chandler
The Bills lost last week and Chandler didn’t score a TD. He hasn’t since Week 8.
Look for him to get back on track this week and put up a handful of points against a Titans team that doesn’t defend well against his position.
K – John Kasay
It’s going to be a shootout between Detroit and New Orleans, so look for the Saints kicker to have a field day kicking field goals.
DEF – San Francisco
They have had a lot of rest and will look to avenge their most recent loss on Thanksgiving. Expect the Niners defense to go wild and score some points.
