Week 13 Outlook

Sun 4:05pm ET
Matchup (?)
Week Rank (ECR) QB #28
Projection 12.9 pts



It seems that Jones will be forced to miss at least one game, which means McCoy will be the starter against the Seahawks. There have been 38 quarterbacks who've attempted at least 100 passes this year. When you break it down to passing only (no rushing), Jones ranks 35th in fantasy points per pass attempt. Missing him won't be the end of the world for the Giants pass catchers, though it's tough to say McCoy would be an upgrade, especially considering he totaled just 31 yards on 10 attempts against the Bengals. He couldn't ask for a better matchup this week, as there's not a team in the league who allows more fantasy production to their opponents than the Seahawks. The 111.6 PPR points per game they've allowed is head and shoulders above every other team in the league (closest is Jaguars with 103.7 points). Not only are their opponents running a ridiculous 71.5 plays per game, but they're also passing the ball a league-high 65.2 percent of the time against the Seahawks, which is why quarterbacks are averaging 23.96 fantasy points per game against them. The 7.68 yards per attempt isn't that bad, as there are six teams who've allowed more. The Seahawks defense has looked better over the last three weeks, though the competition hasn't been very good (Jared Goff, Kyler Murray playing through shoulder injury, and Carson Wentz). The three of them combined for just 786 yards on 124 pass attempts (6.34 yards per attempt) with four passing touchdowns over the three games combined. McCoy isn't someone I'd recommend streaming, as there's a reason he's started just three games since 2014. Let the recent play of the Seahawks defense be the final nail in the coffin.
