Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420682 Start 'Em - Jason Avant vs SEA Start+%27Em+-+Jason+Avant+vs+SEA Fantasy Football

All signs point to Jeremy Maclin and Mike Vick missing the Eagles’ Thursday night game in Seattle. Avant only needs 31 yards to eclipse his career-best mark for receiving yards in a single season (587 in 2009). He was definitely the benefactor of garbage fantasy points against the Patriots. Thanks to the deep hole the Eagles found themselves in, Avant finished with eight receptions for 110 yards and a last second touchdown. There is a chance he will fight for targets with Riley Cooper who Vince Young has thrown to 17 times the last two games. The good news is Rex Grossman just passed for over 300 yards and two touchdowns against the Seahawks. So, in a pinch, Avant is flex-worthy. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30416962 Sit 'Em - Cedric Benson vs PIT Sit+%27Em+-+Cedric+Benson+vs+PIT Fantasy Football

Cedric Benson’s 2011 fantasy value check list is pretty simple. Just ask these three questions: 1) Is he playing against a team from outside the state of Ohio? 2) Is he playing a top 10 defense? 3) Is he playing a top 10 rush defense? If all the answers are YES, bench Benson. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420687 Start 'Em - Percy Harvin vs DEN Start+%27Em+-+Percy+Harvin+vs+DEN Fantasy Football

Linus has his security blanket and Christian Ponder has Percy Harvin. The versatile receiver has averaged eight targets per game over the Vikings last three games. Harvin has caught 20 balls for 220 yards with two touchdowns during that same stretch. As an added bonus, if Adrian Peterson (ankle) has to miss Sunday’s game, he could receive an extra five touches out of the backfield. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420692 Sit 'Em - Andre Johnson vs ATL Sit+%27Em+-+Andre+Johnson+vs+ATL Fantasy Football

I’m sure T.J. Yates is a great person and could become a great quarterback, but in Week 13 with teams vying for the fantasy playoffs, avoiding the Texans’ passing game would be wise. Johnson finished with two receptions for 22 yards in his first game back, not what owners need out of a WR 1 or 2. The good news for AJ is that if his team finds a suitable quarterback, Houston plays Carolina and Indianapolis Weeks 15 and 16 and could rack up monster numbers. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420678 Start 'Em - Mike Williams vs CAR Start+%27Em+-+Mike+Williams+vs+CAR Fantasy Football

It took a lot longer than expected, but Mike Williams’ fantasy value has received a nice boost the last few games. In the last three weeks, he’s caught 15 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns. Josh Freeman should be able to attack the Panthers’ secondary – heck Curtis Painter found Reggie Wayne early and often last week – and Williams remains the Bucs’ dominant number one option ahead of Kellen Winslow. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420685 Sit 'Em: Peyton Hillis vs BAL Sit+%27Em%3A+Peyton+Hillis+vs+BAL Fantasy Football

Well, look who’s back. After the Madden curse knocked him out with strep throat and then a debilitating hamstring injury, Hillis returned to the Browns’ backfield and racked up 65 yards on 19 carries (3.4 yards per rush) against the Bengals. For those owners who stuck things out, congrats, but don’t get any crazy ideas as Cleveland’s remaining schedule is brutal including this Sunday’s date with Baltimore. Word is the third-best rush defense (91.5 yards allowed per game) should get Ray Lewis back in time, too. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420686 Start 'Em - BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs IND Start+%27Em+-+BenJarvus+Green-Ellis+vs+IND Fantasy Football

We as fantasy owners are well aware of what Tom Brady can do with his arm. It’s a safe bet that he throws for 250 or more yards against the Colts with two or three touchdowns. However, you can’t ignore the fact that a) Indianapolis’ rush defense is horrid - they’ve allowed 201, 141 and 163 rush yards in the last three games b) Green-Ellis is the Patriots’ primary running back and should carve up the Colts. I’m thinking 110 rushing yards with a touchdown. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420677 Sit 'Em - Detroit DEF vs NO Sit+%27Em+-+Detroit+DEF+vs+NO Fantasy Football

The Saints are rested (Week 11 BYE) and healthy for the home stretch. Drew Brees just carved up the Giants (26th versus the pass) and New Orleans remains the NFL’s second-highest scoring offense at 32.9 points per game. Aaron Rodgers proved on Thanksgiving that Detroit’s top 10 pass defense can be scored on and with Ndamukong Suh slapped with a two-game suspension, the Lions’ pass rush just took a major hit at the worst possible time. Brees is locked in and like I suggested against the Packers benching the Lions this week would be a smart move. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420683 Sit 'Em - Steven Jackson vs SF Sit+%27Em+-+Steven+Jackson+vs+SF Fantasy Football

If the 49ers top-ranked rush defense (75.5 yards allowed per game) wasn’t enough of a reason to bench any opposing fantasy running back, the state of the Rams’ offensive line  has forced me to sell some S-Jax stock. He’s carried the ball 32 times for 106 yards (3.3 yards per carry) his last two games. That’s not going to cut it in Week 13 when owners need 10-15 fantasy points out of Jackson. Remember, San Francisco has yet to allow a rushing touchdown this season – another item on Jackson owners’ wish list this Sunday. I downgrade him to a flex play. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1400 Week 13 fantasy football starts and sits 30420679 Start 'Em - Lance Moore vs DET Start+%27Em+-+Lance+Moore+vs+DET Fantasy Football

When at his best, Moore can be compared to Green Bay’s Jordy Nelson or vice-versa. Drew Brees proved in Week 12 his slot receiver becomes a favorite target behind Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston. Don’t let pecking order deter you from starting him. Since he joined the Saints, Moore has been a major red zone option (nine targets this season) and has the ability to haul in the deep pass from Brees. He’s caught five passes of more than 20 yards this season. Detroit will be focused on containing Graham and Colston allowing Moore to reap the benefits. – Ryan Fowler
