Since Week 6, Ryan Tannehill (Miami) has been the fifth-best fantasy quarterback behind Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck. No reason why Tannehill can’t deliver Top-10 fantasy numbers this week.
Keep C.J. Anderson (Denver) plugged into your lineup. Anderson has been the No. 1 running back in point-per-scoring formats over the past three weeks.
Rashad Jennings (N.Y. Giants) makes for a strong start this week, and I have him slotted as the eighth-best running back option. As an added incentive, Jennings began his career with Jacksonville.
Over the past three games, Andre Ellington (Arizona) has averaged just 1.9 yards per carry, although this is a tempting matchup as Atlanta allows the most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Ellington is also good for four or five receptions pretty much every week.

Welcome back Josh Gordon (Cleveland) – who instantly got 16 targets last week. At Buffalo is no cupcake match-up, but Gordon remains a top-10 option at wide receiver.
You aren’t benching Mike Evans (Tampa Bay), and he has now scored in four straight games, but Cincinnati has been second stingiest at allowing fantasy points to receivers this year.
My FanDuel lineups the past four weeks have been at or near the top (thank you, Odell Beckham Jr. and Demaryius Thomas last week). Let’s keep it rolling. My Sunday games Week 13 lineup is: QB Ben Roethlisberger ($8,300), RB Rashad Jennings ($7,100), RB Tre Mason ($6,000), WR Antonio Brown ($9,200), WR T.Y. Hilton ($8,700), WR Kenny Stills ($5,100), TE Delanie Walker ($5,700), K Randy Bullock ($4,900), Miami Defense ($4,900).
Week 13 sleepers
I am all-in on Tre Mason (St. Louis) this week. Mason has done well against tough defenses, and while Oakland this week actually is no pushover, Mason looks like a good candidate to bust a long score and he is due for a two-touchdown game.
One week in, but Dan Herron (Indianapolis) averaged 5.4 yards per carry last week to 3.2 for Trent Richardson. Herron is the better fantasy play. Herron was also drafted in the 2012 NFL Draft – in the sixth round, versus mega-bust Richardson who went with the third pick of the entire draft.
DeAndre Hopkins (Houston) gets Ryan Fitzpatrick back at quarterback. Hopkins was far more effective with Fitzpatrick than Ryan Mallet under center (Hopkins averaged 106 yards in his last three games with Fitzpatrick to just 60 yards in two games with Mallet).
Somewhat lost in the shuffle of the epic rookie receiver class has been the play of Jarvis Landry (Miami). While Landry hasn’t had huge yardage games, he has been highly consistent. Landry has at least three receptions in every game since Week 2 and he averages 4.9 receptions per game over that time frame.
