Week 13 fantasy football projections, rankings from Draft Sharks

    Fantasy football owners won’t be missing too many important players with just the Panthers and Cardinals on bye this week, but with injuries continuing to open the door for under-the-radar backups, start ’em, sit ’em decisions aren’t getting any easier. As such, having a reliable set of weekly fantasy projections and rankings is more important than ever. The more expert analysis, opinions, and stats you can absorb, the better it will make your Week 13 lineup decisions.

    Week 13 Fantasy Football Projections, Rankings from Draft Sharks

    Week 13 fantasy QB projections, rankings

    Spotlight Player: Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins @ 49ers (SN Ranking: 6 | DS Ranking: 13)

    Draft Sharks still likes Tagovailoa, but our higher ranking has to do with Tua being virtually “matchup proof” at this point. San Francisco is playing great defense, but with Miami’s stable of speedy playmakers and quick-strike scheme, Tagovailoa is still going to accumulate points. His ceiling is always high, regardless of opponent, and his floor is always solid, too. That’s why we have him safely in the QB1 tier.

    Week 13 fantasy RB projections, rankings

    Spotlight Player: Latavius Murray, Broncos @ Ravens (SN PPR Ranking: 31 | DS Ranking: 20)

    Murray popped for a 52-yard run last week, but he combined for just 40 yards on his other 12 carries. Maybe that will be his M.O. going forward, but it just feels like he needs a short TD or one big run to have real value most weeks. Given his volume, he’s still worth using as a flex, but we don’t see him as a “safe” RB2 the way Draft Sharks does this week. The Ravens allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game (FPPG) to RBs, so it’s going to be tougher than usual for Murray to grind out yards.

    Spotlight Player: Brian Robinson Jr., Commanders @ Giants (SN PPR Ranking: 22 | DS Ranking: 30)

    There isn’t that much difference in our ranking compared to Draft Sharks’, but we wanted to point out that DS has Antonio Gibson ahead of Robinson while we do not. Robinson dominated carries last week (18 to 9) and actually saw the same number of targets (3). We still think Gibson has more value in PPR leagues relative to standard leagues, but compared to Robinson, the gap might be closing. Ultimately, we’ll go with the guy who’s getting the ball more.

    Week 13 fantasy WR projections, rankings

    Spotlight Player: Julio Jones, Buccaneers @ Saints (SN PPR Ranking: 50 | DS Ranking: 26)

    Jones played a season-high 62 percent of snaps last week, but we still can’t quite get there with him as a WR3. His production is too spotty and TD dependent. He’s yet to have more than five targets in a game, so as long as Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are healthy, we don’t see Jones as anything more than a deep-league flex in this neutral matchup.

    Spotlight Player: Drake London, Falcons vs. Steelers (SN PPR Ranking: 32 | DS Ranking: 55)

    London isn’t a high-volume player, but he plays on over 80 percent of snaps and has scored in two of the past three games. Our lofty ranking for him has more to do with his matchup than anything, as Pittsburgh is allowing the most FPPG to wide receivers. Even London and the Falcons’ anemic passing attack should be able to take advantage of that, so we like his floor and ceiling more than usual this week.

    Week 13 fantasy TE projections, rankings

    Spotlight Player: Dawson Knox, Bills @ Patriots (SN PPR Ranking: 7 | DS Ranking: 14)

    Knox has been a disappointment this year, and that was especially true last week when he failed to deliver in a highly favorable matchup (two catches, 17 yards). Draft Sharks is understandably a little leery of him because of that, but we’re going back to the well in another favorable matchup. New England allows the eighth-most FPPG to TEs, and Knox gets enough targets to have a solid floor most weeks. Unfortunately, he’s not a lock for production, but we think he’s safely in the starting tier. Draft Sharks isn’t quite so sure.

    Week 13 fantasy defense projections, rankings

    Spotlight Player: Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Saints (SN Ranking: 1 | DS Ranking: 19)

    Tampa has been a disappointment this year, but that’s largely because it hasn’t been able to buy a turnover, posting just two total takeaways in the past seven games. Its pass rush has still been strong, though, and by far its best defensive game of the season came against the Saints in Week 2 (six sacks, five takeaways, TD). Jameis Winston was under center then, and it’s possible he’s back for a reeling Saints’ offense that was just shut out by the 49ers. If he’s not, then Tampa gets Andy Dalton in prime time, and we know how that usually goes. Either way, we win with the Bucs, so we’re all-in.
