Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

Javonte Williams Note

Williams came through for fantasy managers last week in a plus matchup against the Chargers. He finished with 14 carries for 54 yards and a score, while also adding 3 receptions for 57 yards through the air on four targets. It continues to be a highly discussed topic that Williams could be a league winner if something happens to Gordon in this backfield, but he's going to continue to be just a low-end RB2 in the meantime. Against the Chiefs, Williams can be started as a high floor option that can hopefully see his involvement in the receiving game continue.

Jerry Jeudy Note

WR57, WR22, WR39, and WR66. These are the fantasy finishes for Jeudy over the last four weeks. While Jeudy continues to be one of the league's best route-runners and most talented wideouts, he is simply is not high-powered enough of an offense to return WR2 value every single week. With the Broncos being committed to the run game when they can, plus the competition for targets now with everyone healthy, Jeudy doesn't have the ability to turn his limited opportunity into top-tier fantasy production. At this point, Jeudy is the only Broncos WR we can trust in our lineups and that's as nothing more than a low-end WR3.

Melvin Gordon III Note

The Broncos were able to lean on their run game last week and Gordon put together a solid performance with 17 carries for 83 yards. While he watched Williams and Bridgewater each find the end zone against the Chargers, he still provided a high floor for fantasy managers. This backfield continues to remain essentially a completely even split, which hurts both Gordon and Williams' upside. The Chiefs are middle of the pack when it comes to slowing down opposing RBs from a fantasy perspective, so we shouldn't expect a blow-up performance here from either player. Gordon can remain a solid floor play in fantasy lineups as a low-end RB2.

Courtland Sutton Note

If I told you that Sutton had 7 receptions for 95 yards and zero touchdowns, you'd probably think that was a solid one-game outing, right? Unfortunately, that is not just one game's production for Sutton but his last four combined. He's had just 15 Half PPR fantasy points over his last four games and he is crushing fantasy lineups where he's still being started. Sutton remains one of the league's premier downfield threats, but this offense simply has too many other mouths to feed to provide him sustainable fantasy production. At this point, Sutton needs to be downgraded significantly in lineups until we start to see things turn around. There's the possibility that the Broncos have to throw the ball more this week to keep up with the Chiefs, which could lead to more opportunity for Sutton, but it's a big question mark right now as to whether or not that production goes Sutton's way or another player in this offense. He should be viewed as a high-end FLEX play in Week 13 and we might need to have a larger conversation regarding Sutton this time next week if he doesn't come through here.

Tim Patrick Note

Patrick remains one of the league's most underrated WRs and he's played his way into a large contract extension this season. However, this offense is not built to provide him weekly fantasy value when everyone's healthy. Now that Sutton, Jeudy, Fant, Gordon, Williams, and Okwuegbunam are all in the lineup, there's very little upside to playing Patrick. There's always the possibility that he comes away with a touchdown in this game that could turn into a shootout, but that's a major question mark. If he doesn't, you'll most likely be disappointed you played him. He can be viewed as a high-end FLEX option in Week 13.

Noah Fant Note

Earlier on this season, Fant was seeing north of 7 or 8 targets regularly with so many proven receiving options out of the lineup. However, he has now seen just 14 targets over his last three games and has less than 15 receiving yards in two of those performances. There's the possibility that the Broncos need Fant more in this outing against their division rival, but fantasy managers have to ask themselves what the upside is to playing him at this point? There's enough going against him to downgrade him to a mid-range TE2 for Week 13.
