Who to start in week 13?
- Quarterback: Baker Mayfield He’s not exactly the quarterback that many would bet on for the start. However, by week 13 the Browns will face the Titans, who have the fifth worst defense against passing air (average of 268.5 yards per game).
- Running back: During Thanksgiving game against the Cowboys Antonio Gibson he rushed for 115 yards and three touchdowns. For this day he will have a more difficult task because in front he will have the Steelers, eighth best defense against carries (105.7 yards per game); if the WFT is to hit the ground running, it must establish its running attack – in three its four wins of the year ran for more than 160 yards. Also, against the Ravens, Pittsburgh allowed 129 rushing yards and will only have five days off to face Washington.
- Wide receiver: With the return of Ryan Fitzpatrick DeVante Parker has seen his production of points increase in fantasy, against Broncos and Jets he accumulated 18.1 and 19.9 units respectively. Up front, the Dolphins will have the Bengals, who allow an average of 253.7 passing yards per game.

- Kicker: Mike Glennon will take the reins of the Jaguars offense. Against the Vikings, at US Bank Stadium and with a passer who doesn’t promise six-point drives for the Jaguars, Chase McLaughlin can have multiple field goals. Additionally, Minnesota allows an average of 9.55 units per game to hitters.
- Defensive: Week after week Carson Wentz continues to struggle with exchanges. In front you will have los Packers, who are coming off their best defensive game of the year (351 total yards allowed, three sacks, two interceptions, one fumble and one touchdown).
