Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 PPR Rankings

Joe Mixon Note

Mixon has been on a touchdown rampage, with two TDs in each of his last four games and at least one TD in each of his last eight games. He's scored 13 touchdowns in 11 games, and Weeks 2-3 were the only times this season when he wasn't able to find his way into the end zone. Over the last two weeks, Mixon has had 58-288-4 rushing, hammering away at the Raiders and Steelers in one-sided Cincinnati victories. Mixon could carry a heavy load this weekend against the Chargers, who have given up 1,598 rushing yards this season, more than any other team in the league. Opposing running backs are averaging 4.7 yards per carry against the Chargers and gouging them for 24.0 fantasy points per game. Mixon is the RB2 this week. At $8,100 on DraftKings, Mixon is rather pricey for a back who doesn't catch many passes, but it's hard to say it's too expensive for a player who's so red-hot.

Ja'Marr Chase Note

Chase investors shouldn't panic over the recent downturn. The explosive rookie has been held to 6-71-1 receiving on nine targets over the last two weeks, but that's largely because the Bengals won their last two games by a combined 50 points. Chase is still a top-five play in season-long leagues and a great value at $7,000 on DraftKings.

Tee Higgins Note

Higgins ended a six-game touchdown drought with a pretty 32-yard TD catch against the Steelers last weekend, and he almost had a second touchdown but was tackled just short of the end zone. Higgins' 2021 per-game numbers look a lot like his rookie-year numbers, yet there's a palpable lack of enthusiasm among Higgins stakeholders. Keep playing him. He's a low-end WR2 this week against the Chargers and a good DraftKings value at $5,800.

Tyler Boyd Note

Since his 9-118-0 performance in Week 4, Boyd has averaged just 3.3 catches and 30.3 fantasy points per game. The target share just isn't substantial enough for Boyd to be in your lineup unless you're desperate. Boyd lands at WR49 in the Week 13 rankings.

After scoring five touchdowns over a four-game stretch from Week 4 to Week 7, Uzomah has gone four games without a TD. He's also totaled just 18 receiving yards over his last two games. He's a midrange TE2 this week, bolstered slightly by a matchup against a Chargers defense that's giving up 10.4 fantasy points per game to tight ends.
