The biggest question you’ll be facing in Week 13, unless you’re me, who owns GRONK and his continuous stream of SMASHING, will inevitably be at tight end. Here’s why:


Jordan Cameron (Still walkin’ around like Lucille 2)
Dwayne Allen (Ankle)
Jace Amaro (Dizzies)


Jordan Reed (Being always hurt Jordan Reed)


Charles Clay (Hammy)


Julius Thomas (Ankle)

Don’t you wish you’d had just grabbed Delanie Walker off free agency?

Here’s the skinny. I’m holding out for Julius Thomas in the Sunday night game. You need a replacement if he’s inactive, though. Travis Kelce is the obvious choice, but he’s likely owned by someone that’s not you. There’s even a chance Jacob Tamme’s been stashed away on another roster by a TE desperate leaguemate. Dion Sims is the answer. Sims is certainly no guarantee, but with his increased opportunity in THE BEST matchup a TE can garner, he’s a Top 10 option at the position. I’d play him over Tamme anyway with Clay likely sidelined. Mychal Rivera and Larry Donnell too. Sims played 53 of 62 offensive snaps against the Broncos last week (85-percent) and hauled in four receptions on five targets. It’s not much, but there isn’t much at TE right now. Who would have thought you’d want to play Dion Sims over Charles Sims in Week 13? That bet was off the board in Vegas.

My poor, poor Jerick McKinnon. I was proud to publicize I went to Jerick with his discount DFS price and sweet matchup against the Panthers. Maybe the situation was simply too amazing to actually be realized. We weren’t ready for it. Now it’s all jumbled. Matt Asiata is expected to return from his concussion and presumably get the majority of the carries. Unfortunately, that’s nothing more than guesswork. Joe Banyard looked OK in limited action last week, so it could be him. And, the Vikings did use a waiver claim on Ben Tate. You’d think, eventually, he’d be involved. Seems like a good spot for that. Mike Zimmer hasn’t tipped his hand on how the backfield touches will be distributed, making each one a gamble. I don’t really want to use any, but that’s not a reality in a few leagues, so I’m playing Asiata from the trio. He’s familiar with the offense and is most likely to retain value even if Banyard or Tate is the primary ball handler. Asiata possesses the highest floor, and I don’t want to take a zero. In his past four games, on the bum end of the timeshare with McKinnon, he still played an average of 43-percent of snaps every week, never dipping below 39-percent in any one game: Week 8 at Tampa, 27/70 offensive plays. Plus, he was getting the goal line work. When flipping a coin between two (or more) low end RBs, the one with the highest likelihood of touching the ball inside the 5-yard line is always the answer. That said, if Asiata’s already gone, I’m not against rolling the dice on Banyard. There’s upside to be had against this weak Carolina run defense. Just don’t be upset if he scores zero points either, he’s that type of risk.

Latavius Murray is out in St. Louis. I’m leaning Marcel Reece over Darren McFadden, especially in PPR formats. However, like the Minnesota RBs, but even less so, none should be trusted to produce.

Arian Foster appears ready to play against the Texans and I’m ready to play him. Sorry anyone who was relying on Alfred Blue, you’ll always have Week 11. Hold on to Blue, or grab him if he’s dropped, though. If Foster goes down again, Blue vaults back into the Top 15 running backs. I’d rather stash him on my bench than a wildcard like Murray or McKinnon at this point of the season.

Larry Fitzgerald and Roddy White are both likely to be uniform – HUZZAH!!! Not so fast. It’s hard to imagine Fitz being anything more than a decoy while White has explicitly warned Fantasy owners in the past…

As far as fantasy if I don’t participate in practice than don’t start me it’s a red flag

— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) September 9, 2013

White hasn’t practiced this week. If it was me, and my season was hanging in the balance, I’d believe him.

Here are some undervalued names that pop off the screen in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker. Tomorrow, on FST LIVE from 12:00pm ET to kickoff (on FNTSY Sports Network), Garion Thorne and I will release our rosters most likely to turn a profit in Week 13.
