Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

Antonio Gibson Note

Remember the stress fracture in Gibson's shin? That was a concern earlier in the season. It's been largely forgotten now that Gibson has been on fire ever since Washington's Week 9 bye. In his last three games, Gibson has had 72-270-2 rushing and 9-49-0 receiving. Monday night against Seattle, he had 29-111-0 rushing and 7-35-0 receiving, establishing season highs in carries, catches and rushing yards. Gibson has a favorable matchup against the Raiders this week. The one slight concern here is that Washington might manage Gibson's workload after a 36-touch game and only five days of rest. Gibson is the RB15 this week and a juicy DraftKings value at only $5,700.

Terry McLaurin Note

Continuing a season-long pattern of following up a strong performance with a disappointing one, McLaurin had 4-51-0 against Seattle in Week 12 after putting up 5-103-1 against Carolina a week earlier. This week, McLaurin has a tough individual matchup against Raiders CB Casey Hayward, who's giving up a mere 0.10 fantasy points per route run against him, according to PFF. McLaurin is the WR12 this week, but don't spend $7,400 on him in DraftKings.

Logan Thomas Note

In his first game back from a hamstring injury that had kept him out of action since Week 4, Thomas had 3-31-0 on six targets against Seattle. He appeared to have a game-clinching 3-yard TD catch late in the fourth quarter, but the officials ruled it an incompletion. It was encouraging to see Thomas get a healthy 17% target share in his first game back. He's a high-end TE1 this week in a favorable matchup against the Raiders.

DeAndre Carter Note

After scoring a touchdown in three straight games, Carter was unable to find the end zone in Week 12, finishing with 4-42-0 receiving against Seattle. The return of Curtis Samuel from a groin injury didn't appreciably affect Carter's role. In fact, Carter played a season-high 61 snaps. Still he's no more than an emergency option in fantasy, checking in at WR64.

Curtis Samuel Note

After missing five games with a groin injury, Samuel returned to action in week 12 and had 1-9-0 receiving and 1-4-0 rushing on only 20 snaps. Will the Football Team ramp up Samuel's role in the weeks to come? Maybe. He's an explosive, versatile asset, but Samuel is unplayable for fantasy until we can be confident that he'll get more than a handful of touches.

J.D. McKissic Note

McKissic broke out of a six-game TD drought by scoring a pair of touchdowns against the Seahawks on Monday night. The recent spike in Antonio Gibson's usage probably doesn't bode well for McKissic. But with Washington running 84 plays in Week 12, there were plenty of touches to go around, and McKissic had 7-30-1 rushing and 5-26-1 receiving. McKissic is the RB30 in fantasy points per game among backs who've played at least five games, and he's the RB34 this week vs. the Raiders.
