Fantasy Playoffs are here! For most people at least. To commemorate the beginning of the fantasy playoffs I’m going to skip talking about the guys that played out of their minds and definitely aren’t available in your league. Lets get right into the Studs and Duds of Week 13.
Josh McCown, QB New York Jets: McCown has been lighting it up the past couple weeks passing for 638 yards and 6 total TDs. Totaling 56.1 fantasy points. His schedule the next couple weeks isn’t the best but with his consistent fantasy output I would mark him as a starter the rest of the year.
Kenyan Drake, RB Miami Dolphins: Drake took over the lead back duties with Damien Williams out with a shoulder injury. Drake mustered up 120 yards on 23 carries and a touchdown, giving him 20.1 fantasy points. Going down the stretch Drake can be trusted as a low tier RB2 high tier flex.
Jermaine Kearse, WR New York Jets: Kearse has been phenomenal the last two weeks racking up 16 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown. Him and fellow receiver Robby Anderson deserve to be rostered in all leagues and even started in PPR.
David Njoku, TE Cleveland Browns: Njoku put up a decent stat line against the Chargers catching 4 balls for 74 yards and a touchdown. Going forward I think Josh Gordon will take the attention of the defense giving Njoku some nice matchups on linebackers and whatnot. He deserves to be on your fantasy radar.
Matt Ryan, QB Atlanta Falcons: Ryan has been playing very mediocre this year and I would not be trusting him at all in my fantasy playoffs this year. He deserves a spot on the bench or even dropped entirely.
Danny Woodhead, RB Baltimore Ravens: Since coming back from injury Woodhead has been subpar at best. Alex Collins took hold of the lead back duties and doesn’t seem to be relinquishing it anytime soon.
Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, WR Denver Broncos: Thomas has not been the stud receiver that we were used to seeing the past couple years and Sanders has been no better. The last two weeks the Broncos receiving duo has mustered up 12 catches for 68 yards. You read that right, 68 yards between two players in the last two games.
Jared Cook, TE Oakland Raiders: The last three weeks Cook has caught 4 passes for 47 yards. He deserves to be dropped in all leagues and you should definitely not have him in your lineup.
