Fantasy Football Week 13 Advice: Last Minute Tips

Another day of football is right around the corner, with a game that got bumped from primetime, Colts vs. Patriots, because of the lack of talent from one of the teams. Monday features a game that should have been bumped, with the 4-7 Chargers taking on the 3-8 Jaguars in a game that is sure to be anything but exciting.

Enough ranting, here are some fantasy football tips for this week.

Big Names Who Could Disappoint

Joe Flacco

Flacco and the Ravens are heading into Cleveland after their big Thanksgiving day win over the 49ers. Flacco only threw for 161 yards in the game with one touchdown against San Francisco’s 21st ranked pass defense.


The Browns may only be 4-7, but they own the 1st ranked pass defense in the NFL, with just under 175 yards a game. The only problem is that they allow nearly 139 yards on the ground each game. They should be able to hold Flacco to a below average day, but could have trouble stopping Ray Rice. Don’t expect Flacco to do much, but that does not necessarily mean that the Ravens will lose to the Browns.

Michael Turner

Turner is one of the best backs in the league, but he and the Falcons’ offense will be tested against Houston. The Texans have the fourth ranked rush defense in the league, and will not slip up this week against the Falcons.

Turner only had 60 yards last week against the Vikings, but has had five games with at least 100 yards this season. I am not saying that he should be relegated to the bunch, but just be aware that he may not play up to his usual standards against Houston.

A.J. Green

The Bengals are taking on the Steelers this week, looking for revenge after a 24-17 loss in Week 10. Green only had one catch in the game, which went for a touchdown. He was injured on that very catch, so it was tough to pull too much from that game to project his performance for this week.

The Steelers have the third ranked pass defense, and are coming off of a dominating performance against the Chiefs. Green may catch a touchdown, but should not have more than three or four catches on the day. It will not be a big day for him, so if their are weapons on the bench, look to utilize them.

Under-the-Radar Players to Consider

Caleb Hanie

Hanie and the Bears are facing the Chiefs, who held Pittsburgh to just 13 points last week. The only problem is that they allowed at least 30 points in two of the three games prior to last week.

Hanie threw three interceptions last week against Oakland, but still had 254 yards with two touchdowns. As long as he can limit his mistakes, he will have a solid day, and can be a smart choice for fantasy.

Roy Helu

Helu has been a great weapon for the Redskins during the second half of the season, and will continue to put up big numbers this week against the Jets.

Last week against Seattle, Helu had 23 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown, but he also had 7 catches for 54 yards. His threat as a receiver along with his running ability boosts his fantasy value tremendously. He is a safe choice, as he should be able to put up at least double digit points in a standard league.

Eric Decker

All the buzz in Denver is always just about Tim Tebow, but Decker has quietly put up decent numbers as a receiver, even though Tebow does not always complete too many passes.

Decker has caught four touchdown passes with Tebow as quarterback, including one last week against San Diego. The Bronco’s offense limits the production of the receivers, but Tebow is known to complete long passes once or twice a game, with Decker being the primary target.
