Most fantasy leagues are down to the final week of their regular seasons, which means some of you may be in a win and get in scenario. Others are simply fighting for playoff positioning, but hey, this isn't the time to let your guard down. Keep that momentum going! Whatever position you may be in, we're here to coach you through.
Before we dive into this week's Sit 'Em/Start 'Em players, let us do a quick accountability check. Last week, TheSportster must have ate a full, hearty breakfast because we hit on 85 percent of our week 12 projections. We're not saying we're psychics, but don't mind us (at least for today) while we pat ourselves on the back. Of course, keeping things in perspective, we're happy if we helped you pull out the week 12 victory.
Last week, we had a couple of huge predictions, which included Latavius Murray and Jeremy Hill having big games. While most were hesitant about starting Murray because of the Chiefs' supposed stout run defense, starting him was actually a good idea. In the three games prior to facing Oakland, Kansas City's defense had surrendered over 150 rushing yards per game. In the case of Hill, many were scared off with the return of Gio Bernard, but Hill still managed 18 carries, 87 yards and a touchdown run.
So, with saying that, we're now onto week 13 of the NFL season. (Note: All projections are based on Yahoo! Fantasy.)
20 Kansas City Chiefs' Defense – SIT
19 New York Giants' Defense – START
18 Jordan Cameron – TE, Cleveland Browns – SIT
17 Charles Clay – TE, Miami Dolphins – START
16 DeAndre Hopkins – WR, Houston Texans – SIT
15 Mohamed Sanu – WR, Cincinnati Bengals – START
14 Michael Crabtree – WR, San Francisco 49ers – SIT
13 Malcom Floyd – WR, San Diego Chargers – START
12 Julio Jones – WR, Atlanta Falcons – SIT
11 T.Y. Hilton – WR, Indianapolis Colts – START
10 Ryan Mathews – RB, San Diego Chargers – SIT
9 Denard Robinson – RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – START
8 Trent Richardson – RB, Indianapolis Colts – SIT
7 Rashad Jennings – RB, New York Giants – START
6 Frank Gore – RB, San Francisco 49ers – SIT
5 Isaiah Crowell – RB, Cleveland Browns – START
4 Matt Ryan – QB, Atlanta Falcons – SIT
3 Eli Manning – QB, New York Giants – START
2 Josh McCown – QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – SIT
1 Matthew Stafford – QB, Detroit Lions – START
Here is your classic rebound game. Last week, the Patriots made Stafford look pedestrian, and he completed a mere 18 out of 46 passes. He chipped in an interception to top off his forgettable performance. It was one of his worst games of the season, but he should bounce back against a Bears' team that is ranked 28th in the NFL in defending the pass. If you have a couple of Detroit receivers named Golden Tate and Calvin Johnson, I'd look for them to also benefit from Stafford's week 13 revival. Of course, it wasn't like you were going to sit either one of those receivers anyway, were you?
