NFL Fantasy Start Em, Sit Em: 20 Players to Start or Sit in Week 13

In most leagues, there are just two more weeks before the playoffs. If you're on the cusp of making it into the playoffs or trying to hold on, we've got you covered with who to start and sit with this week.

Embarrassing your friends in Fantasy or are they embarrassing you? Lucky for you, we have over $5,000 in free bets to use on the NFL! Even if your fantasy team is sucking, you can still brag about winning money!

Quarterbacks To Play in Week 13

1. Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns (With Watson back, can the Browns turn it around this week just in time for you to win big?)

2. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars

Deshaun Watson hasn't played a regular season game in years. But he's officially back under center for the Browns on Sunday.

Normally, I'd shy away. But he's taking on his former team, the Houston Texans, who got crushed by the Dolphins in the passing game. If you're looking to make a high-risk, high-reward gamble, start Watson.

Think Deshaun Watson comes back and is the same player he was before his suspension and injury? Whether he is or isn't, bet $5 at DraftKings and get $150 whether your bet wins or loses!

Quarterbacks To Sit in Week 13

3. Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

4. Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants

5. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers

It's unclear if Aaron Rodgers will even be able to play this week. He's got a broken thumb and injured ribs. He might even have a punctured lung.

He pushes through most of his injuries. But that doesn't mean he'll be healthy on Sunday. Don't get caught losing out on the playoffs because you started an injured Aaron Rodgers.

Running Backs To Play in Week 13

6. Brian Robinson Jr., Washington Commanders (Win big with Brian Robinson's player props against a Giants team coming off a loss!)

7. Rachaad White, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

8. Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs 

The young running backs are shining in the backfield right now

  • Rachaad White caught nine passes with Leonard Fournette out.
  • Brian Robinson Jr. had 18 carries for 105 yards and a touchdown last week.
  • And finally, Isiah Pacheco also added a touchdown on 22 carries for 69 yards.

All three have solid matchups heading into Week 13.

Running Backs To Sit in Week 13

9. Cam Akers RB, Los Angeles Rams

10. Latavius Murray, RB, Denver Broncos

Akers lost playing time to Kyren Williams. He had just eight carries for 37 yards last week against the Chiefs.

With Stafford unavailable, the Rams are likely going to trail early and often now. That doesn't bode well for Akers.

Wide Receivers To Play in Week 13

11. Garrett Wilson, New York Jets

12. Joshua Palmer, Los Angeles Chargers

I had Garrett Wilson on this list last week. I acknowledged that if Zach Wilson were benched, Wilson would be a top play. He scored two touchdowns and caught five passes for nearly 100 yards.

Is the Garrett Wilson and Mike White connection a thing? Bet on the Jets or Vikings to win and get 30/1 odds with this DraftKings promo!

Mike White threw for over 300 yards in their win against the Bears. Now the Jets will face the worst passing defense in the league. Back Wilson to keep his momentum going.

Wide Receivers To Sit in Week 13

13. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kansas City Chiefs

14. Drake London, Atlanta Falcons (Bet Drake London to win Offensive ROY here!)

15. Chase Claypool, Chicago Bears

Smith-Schuster didn't get much playing time last week as he recovered from a concussion. If Toney is back in the lineup, JuJu will probably see a limited amount of targets moving forward.

Meanwhile, Chase Claypool is still not much of a threat in the Chicago offense. He wasn't targeted very much, even when Justin Fields wasn't under the center. Please don't bother with him this week.

Will the struggling Packers take down Chase Claypool and the Bears? Get 40/1 odds on that happening with this incredible DraftKings offer!

Tight Ends To Play in Week 13

16. Hayden Hurst, Cincinnati Bengals

17. Foster Moreau, Las Vegas Raiders

Foster Moreau is getting a ton of snaps with the Raiders now that Darren Waller is out. He also scored a touchdown last week and has been a major factor in the Las Vegas offense.

Tight Ends To Sit in Week 13

18. Robert Tonyan, Green Bay Packers

19. Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins

20. Cameron Brate, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Again, I wouldn't consider Packers receivers in Sunday's matchup without knowing Rodgers' health.

Gesicki is out of the Miami offense, while Cameron Brate is still struggling to make strides in his return to the field.

If you're streaming any of these tight ends in fantasy, you probably need to win your money back elsewhere. Luckily, Draftkings has a 30/1 offer on any Week 13 moneyline!
