20 Baker Mayfield CLE at TEN 6 D 14.9 -0.9 37% (6/16) 3% Average

 
Kirk Cousins (MIN)
Cousins has been one of the better fantasy football QBs here in recent weeks and he now has a fantastic matchup here in front of him. Dalvin Cook might not be 100%, which means that Cousins may need to throw the ball a bit more in this game. This puts Cousins squarely in the streaming QB conversation and he could easily finish within the top-5 yet again.

Matt Ryan (ATL)
Ryan didn’t have the best fantasy performance in week 12, but it was enough to lead his team to a resounding victory. In this matchup, Ryan’s difficult to fully trust after what we saw last week in a better matchup. Ryan should be viewed as a mid-range QB2 this week.

50 Adrian Peterson DET at CHI 3.2 F 5 0.8 50% (8/16) 14% Poor

 
Miles Sanders (PHI)
This is a dream matchup for opposing RBs. The Packers are allowing the 3rd most fantasy points to the position, but there’s reason to be concerned with Sanders moving forward. Over the past few weeks, Sanders has seen his snap share percentage drop down while Boston Scott has seen his involvement in the offense dramatically increase. If we knew Sanders was going to receive 15+ carries and a few targets in this game, it would be very easy to rank him as a top-10 option in this matchup. However, with the state of the offense around him, plus Scott’s increased involvement, Sanders is a risky mid-range RB2 play. It could certainly pay off in a big way for your lineup, but there’s too much volatility to rank him higher than that.

J.K. Dobbins (BAL)
Dobbins received the majority of the workload the last time all three of these running backs were healthy, which would cause Dobbins to skyrocket in rankings if that is the case here. The Cowboys are allowing the 5th most fantasy points to opposing RBs and they just got gashed by Antonio Gibson for three touchdowns on Thanksgiving. If we knew that Dobbins was going to receive 15+ touches in this backfield as the clear lead option, he’d be a top-10 play this week. We don’t have large enough of a sample size to say that with certainty though, which pushes Dobbins down the board slightly. He can be viewed as a high-end RB2 this week with tremendous upside.

A.J. Brown (TEN)
Brown had a tough matchup on paper last week, but he came through for fantasy managers that went with the mantra “start your studs”. He’s one of the best young wideouts in the game and he belongs in your lineup every single game. This week, he can be viewed as a low-end WR1 against the Browns secondary.

Brandin Cooks (HOU)
As of right now, Cooks is the only WR that you should be looking to play in Houston. He certainly gets a huge boost with Will Fuller out for the year, Randall Cobb on IR, and Kenny Stills no longer with the team. He’s been playing extremely well here lately and should see plenty of targets funneled his way. It’s a tougher matchup on paper, but Cooks should see enough volume to be viewed as a high-end WR2.

20 Gerald Everett LAR at ARI 6 F 5.8 0.8 53% (7/13) 5% Good

 
Robert Tonyan (GB)
At this point, Tonyan belongs in your starting lineup every week. He’s now finished as the TE7 and TE2 in back-to-back weeks and Rodgers is looking his way repeatedly. Tonyan can be viewed as a mid-range TE1 this week.

Jordan Reed (SF)
Reed has a fantastic matchup this week against the Bills, who are currently allowing the 9th most fantasy points to opposing TEs. He hasn’t exactly been producing recently, but he’s certainly seeing the target volume that pushes him into the streaming conversation. He doesn’t break the top-12 in my TE rankings this week, but he’s certainly worth considering if you’re looking for an option at the position that could bring some upside.
