2011 Fantasy Football: NFL Week 13 Review

| by

Pat Mayo might have your head spinning this week with his flex rankings. Can you believe he has Laurent Robinson ranked No. 5? No, not among WRs, but among all players. Mayo is a true believer in Robinson, and given the matchup against Arizona, the inconsistency from Dez Bryant and another missed week from Miles Austin, it’s hard to argue against a big week from Robinson.

Sarah Bojarski debunks the Start/Sit myths in her column this week. From the idea that you should start wide receivers to match your opponents’ quarterback to the one that says you should “go with what got you here,” Sarah pokes a few holes in these and other myths. This is the kind of stuff you need to read before you start going crazy with your playoff lineup. [Pink Zone Coverage]

Scott “The King” Engel is back with his Week 13 lineup rankings. He too is a believer in Laurent Robinson, but there’s another upstart wide receiver who he thinks is in line for an even better week. As usual, you want to read these rankings before you set your lineup this week. [Week 13 Lineup Rankings]

What do you guys think about trade vetoes? I, like my friend Jake Ciely, think they’re pretty lame. Not matter the case, unless, of course there some sort of tomfoolery going on (Yes, Aaron Rodgers for Tyler Palko needs to be vetoed), trades should not be vetoed. I’ve seen some bad ones in my day, but I hate the veto process. Jake has a great take on why vetoes are lame, plus he delves into his start/sits of the week. [Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em]

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

If you are in desperate need of a quarterback during the playoff run, Adam Ronis thinks you should look no further than Matt Moore of the Miami Dolphins. Thanks in big part to his stellar play, with seven touchdowns over his last four games, and his favorable schedule ahead. Ronis takes a look into Moore’s true value, along with other available quarterbacks in this week’s Mail Bag. [Xpert Mail Bag]

We’re getting close to being able to name the 2011 RotoExperts.com and Maxwell Club Fantasy Football Player of the Year, and as far as Dr. Roto is concerned, it’s a two man race. See who he has at the top of the heap, as well as his latest addition into the Top 5 in this week’s breakdown. [Fantasy Football Player of the Year]

Nick Kaylor is already making his list of who’s been naughty and nice this season, just in time for the holidays. And I must say, it’s about time someone says something nice about Chris Johnson. Sure, outside of three weeks, he’s played like a 5th round pick who was taken in the Top 5 picks, but after last week’s performance, Kaylor and I have nothing but nice things to say about Johnson. See who else made the list, and who came in as an in-between. [Fantasy Prodigy]

Face it, the Bills are in trouble with C.J. Spiller and Tashard Choice as their lead runners. The Fred Jackson injury did all sorts of damage to the Buffalo backfield, as we saw last week with Spiller posting just 2.9 yards per carry against the Jets. As a result, however, mike Gilbert is keying you in on the success that Ryan Fitzpatrick had, and offering him up as a low-end QB1 in deeper leagues. Hard to argue not only with his success from Week 12, but with the fairly favorable schedule the Bills have during the Fantasy playoffs. [Hot Freaks]

Adam Zdroik is helping you prepare for the Fantasy Football playoffs with his stock market report this week. Sure, most of you have another regular season game to play, but as Zdroik puts it, it’s never too early to start thinking playoff strategy. Especially if you have a spot already locked up. [Stock Report]

Greg Little had 13 targets last week for the Browns. Any chance he can at least sustain some nice Fantasy value going forward? Sorry, but it’s too little, too late, as far as Adam McFadden is concerned. This week, Adam breaks down the targets and touches and tips you to which ones are the mother lode and which ones are simply fool’s gold. [Target and Touches]
