Biggest Studs

Darren Waller
Week 13 @ NYJ: 17 targets for 13 receptions, 200 yards, & 2 TD
Fantasy Playoffs: IND, LAC, MIA
Waller is a baller.  He just put up the sixth-best fantasy performance by a tight end.  EVER.  Waller has been the TE2 on the season and produced at a very high level.  Waller is the next best TE to roster behind Kelce, consider yourself lucky if you’re walking into the playoffs with Waller.

David Montgomery
Week 13 vs DET: 17 rushes for 72 yards & 2 TD \ 4 receptions on 4 targets for 39 yards
Fantasy Playoffs: HOU, @MIN, @JAX
David Montgomery, Andy’s start of the week, has been very productive as a solid RB2 all year.  He had a great week with 111 total yards and 2 TD on the ground.  Montgomery has the seventh most RB receptions on the year!  He is incredibly safe and similarly unsexy.  Montgomery is a great RB2 with a great playoff schedule.

Aaron Jones
Week 13 vs PHI: 15 rushes for 130 yards & 1 TD | 3 receptions on 3 targets for 18 yards
Fantasy Playoffs: @DET, CAR, TEN
Jones is the only running back to finish inside the top-24 every week.  He has been electric despite Green Bay spreading the ball around to teammate Jamaal Williams.  Jones has had fewer week-winning performances this year than 2019, but he has been significantly more reliable.  In 2019, Jones won you a handful of weeks and probably lost you a handful of weeks.  2020 Aaron Jones is more consistent and remains a top option at the RB position.  Also, check out this run!

Jonathan Taylor
Week 13 @ HOU: 13 rushes for 91 yards | 3 receptions on 3 targets for 44 yards & 1 TD
Fantasy Playoffs: @LV, HOU, @PIT
Taylor has been up and down this season more than any other player in fantasy.  Now he has two rock-solid weeks in a row under his belt, and he looked great this weekend.   You should be confident in starting Taylor moving forward.  He logged 48% of snaps compared to Hines (33%) and Wilkins (19%).  Start Taylor with confidence.

TY Hilton
Week 13 @ HOU: 8 receptions on 11 targets for 110 yards & 1 TD
Fantasy Playoffs: @LV, HOU, @PIT
TY Hilton looked like his younger self this weekend.  He has a habit of balling out versus Houston every single time they play.  The Fantasy Footballers had predicted a big Hilton outing, and they were spot on.  Why can’t Hilton do this every week?  It’s hard to say… but he clearly has some incredible talent left in him.  Hilton can be considered as a flex option this upcoming week, and you should feel confident in starting him in Week 15…why?  Because he plays the Texans again, and he always puts up big numbers against the Texans.

Biggest Stinkers

Justin Herbert
Week 13 vs NE: 26 completions on 53 passes for 209 yards & 2 interceptions
Fantasy Playoffs: ATL, @LV, DEN
The Chargers failed to put up any points on offense this weekend.  The Patriots tend to do well at shutting down rookie quarterbacks, and they exceeded expectations on Sunday.  What should you do with Herbert?  Start him again.  Don’t worry, every player has bad games.  Herbert remains a must-start, especially facing a juicy Atlanta defense in Week 14.

Miles Sanders
Week 13 @ GB: 10 rushes for 31 yards | 1 target for 0 catches
Fantasy Playoffs: NO, @ARI, @DAL
Everything that could go wrong for Sanders’ opportunity in 2020 has gone wrong.  Head Coach Doug Pederson is on the hot seat.  Carson Wentz has been terrible, yet the offense is still running through him.  The Eagles have limited Sanders’ workload and even brought Jordan Howard up from the practice squad to steal some carries away.  Sanders has scored fewer than 10 fantasy points three weeks in a row.  Next, he faces a tough New Orleans defense.  Miles Sanders is a desperation play next week, at best.  Sanders is a risky play in fantasy given the terrible Philly offense and limited workload he has been given.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire
Week 13 vs DEN: 0 snaps
Fantasy Playoffs: @MIA, @NO, ATL
Clyde Edwards-Helaire (CEH) was sick this week and was questionable for Sunday.  We got a notification before the game that he would be active.  The first quarter went bye and we didn’t see CEH.  Then the next quarter, and so on.  CEH didn’t see a single snap in Week 13.  The Chiefs have been giving Le’Veon Bell third down work and critical carries in the games they’ve played.  Meanwhile, CEH has had a limited workload since Bell has joined the team.  Andy is sitting CEH in the playoffs while Mike and Jason are a bit more optimistic.  CEH remains a super risky but high upside option at the RB position for the fantasy playoffs, which is not what he was drafted to be.
