Bye Weeks: N/A

D.K. Metcalf

Grab a Helmet

D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett vs MIN (MON)

You beat Minnesota by taking advantage of their secondary on deep plays. The Vikings have given up a slew of deep passes (46 plays of 20+ yards), putting them in the bottom half of the NFL. Statistically speaking, both of these defenses have major holes against the pass, and Vegas has taken note. The over/under for this game is sneaky high at 49.5, tagged as the second highest in Week 13. Both Metcalf and Lockett get deep for long touchdowns in this one after playing second fiddle to the run game last week.

Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen @ SEA (MON)

A four-for-two special here in the SCR this week, and how fitting as itís stuff your face day here in America! Like I mentioned above, this is setting up to be a high scoring game with both offenses hitting their stride down the stretch. Diggs was an absolute beast as the alpha while Thielen was gone in Weeks 7, 8, and 11, but there should be enough to go around for both guys this round. Thielen has missed a few weeks with a hamstring injury, so heís a risk for an in-game flare-up, but if heís playing, he has to be in your lineup.

DeVante Parker vs PHI

Against all odds, Parker is closing in on a career year in only Week 13. Beset by injuries and lackluster play his first four years in the league, the former 1st rounder has seen double digit targets in three straight, and has been a more than serviceable WR3 the entire season. With an attackable secondary, and anticipated negative game script, Parker should have plenty of opportunity against Philly. Other than a Week 2 goose-egg, heís had a solid floor, and is a more than worthy start this late in the season.

Grab Some Pine

Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones vs CHI (THU)

Iím hoping the Detroit game is over by the time you really dig into your Thanksgiving meal, cause if not, there might be some difficulty holding your food down. With a balky Jeff Driskel barely keeping his head above water, the deadly duo of Golladay and Jones has largely been neutered. Chicago has life again, and theyíll look to get after Driskelís backup, David Bough (who?), who could be a sitting duck (turkey?) if he can't use his legs to escape pressure. This passing game built on the ability to get chunk plays down the field, counting on any Detroit receiver against this defense is scary.

Michael Gallup vs BUF (THU)

After being shut out for the first time in his Cowboy career, you can bet your butt that Dallas will look to Cooper early and often this week. So where does that leave Gallup, the productive sidekick? Iím not sure. Iíd like to believe elite Buffalo corner Tre'davious White will shadow Cooper, freeing up Gallup, but the Bills secondary is playing elite defense across the board, and Gallupís target share could suffer in a game the ĎBoys figure to dial up a few dozen running plays. Heís hard to sit after being so effective the last few weeks, but the fade away matchup and likely game plan make him a WR3 at best.

Mike Williams @ DEN

I made Williams a high pick in one of my leagues, so you can imagine how annoyed I am. Here we sit entering Week 13, and a guy who had double-digit touchdowns last season has yet to find the endzone in 2019. Sure he’s good for a 40 yard completion once per game, but with Hunter Henry healthy, and Ekeler and Allen soaking up all the short and mid-range targets, there’s only been a few scraps available for Williams. He’s failed to top 6 targets in a game since Week 6, and without touchdowns his value is that of a fingers-crossed WR3. Sit him and he’ll score 3 touchdowns. Start him and he probably goes 4-72. If that’s enough to get you a win during a pivotal Week 13, then roll with it.

Good luck this week!
