Fantasy Football Week 13 Flex Rankings (PPR)


Share post:

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. If you’re anything like me you’re spending your Thanksgiving watching the Lions and Cowboys. This year we have three tremendous games on Thanksgiving to start Week 13 off with a bang.

Here’s 50 players you can be thankful for this week:

  1. Dez Bryant, WR, DAL vs. PHI: Great matchup this week for Bryant; very well could be the best receiver in the NFL.
  2. Antonio Brown, WR, PIT vs. NO
  3. A.J. Green, WR, CIN@TB
  4. DeMarco Murray, HB, DAL vs. PHI
  5. Le’Veon Bell, HB, PIT vs. NO
  6. Jimmy Graham, TE, NO@PIT
  7. Arian Foster, HB, HOU vs. TEN: Foster should be back this week, and against a Titans defense that gave up big games to Le’Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy in consecutive weeks.
  8. Calvin Johnson, WR, DET vs. CHI
  9. Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN@KC
  10. Jamaal Charles, HB, KC vs. DEN
  11. T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND vs. WAS
  12. Justin Forsett, HB, BAL vs. SD
  13. Matt Forte, HB, CHI@DET: New England had success with their running backs last week against Detroit with Shane Vareen acting as a receiver and Blount running between the tackles. Luckily for the Bears, Forte acts as both in their offense.
  14. Eddie Lacy, HB, GB vs. NE
  15. Andre Ellington, HB, ARI@ATL: Ellington is banged up with a nagging toe injury and his recent hip issue. The worst fantasy run defense will make him feel better.
  16. Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DEN@KC
  17. Marshawn Lynch, HB, SEA@SF
  18. LeSean McCoy, HB, PHI@DAL
  19. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, NYG@JAX: That catch though. He has been a must start the last few weeks.
  20. Josh Gordon, WR, CLE@BUF
  21. Jordy Nelson, WR, GB vs. NE
  22. C.J. Anderson, HB, DEN@KC
  23. Julius Thomas, TE, DEN@KC
  24. Rob Gronkowski, TE, NE@GB
  25. Rashad Jennings, HB, NYG@JAX: This is a favorable matchup for Jennings, and he has played well coming out of the bye.
  26. Denard Robinson, HB, JAX vs. NYG
  27. Alfred Morris, HB, WAS@IND
  28. Julio Jones, WR, ATL vs. ARI
  29. Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR@MIN
  30. Jeremy Hill, HB, CIN@TB: Hill is now splitting carries with Gio Bernard, but has been a dependable option when he has been given a shot.
  31. Tre Mason, HB, STL vs. OAK
  32. Mark Ingram, HB, NO@PIT
  33. Giovanni Bernard, HB, CIN@TB
  34. Mike Evans, WR, TB vs. CIN
  35. Julian Edelman, WR, NE@GB: Good matchup this week for Edelman. If you haven’t heard, he’s the new Wes Welker in New England.
  36. Roddy White, WR, ATL vs. ARI
  37. Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI@DET: Both Marshall and Jeffery are too close to call. Start either if you have them.
  38. Alshon Jeffery, WR, CHI@DET
  39. Randall Cobb, WR, GB vs. NE
  40. Jarvis Landry, WR, MIA@NYJ: Landry has been the number one receiver in a flourishing Miami offense.
  41. Jordan Matthews, WR, PHI@DAL
  42. Fred Jackson, HB, BUF vs. CLE
  43. Golden Tate, WR, DET vs. CHI
  44. Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF vs. CLE
  45. Greg Olsen, TE, CAR@MIN
  46. LeGarrette Blount, HB, NE@GB
  47. Isaiah Crowell, HB, CLE@BUF
  48. Daniel Herron, HB, IND vs. WAS
  49. Jeremy Maclin, WR, WAS@IND
  50. Keenan Allen, WR, SD@BAL: Allen is finally starting to heat up for fantasy owners, and he has garnered at least nine targets in each of his last five games.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving and good luck this weekend with your teams. Eat plenty, enjoy family and friends and of course watch football.
