Week 13 Big Starts

Running Backs


LeGarrette Blount - Tampa Bay Buccaneers



Blount has been playing very well the past couple weeks and has put up decent fantasy numbers. He is playing the Carolina Panthers this week, who rank the worst defense against RB's. Blount's continued success should prevail for another week.


Wide Receivers


Eric Decker - Denver Broncos



Decker has established himself as the main receiver in the Broncos offense. Denver doesn't favour the pass compared to the run game but when Tim Tebow decides to throw the ball, he seems to be favouring in Decker's direction. The Broncos are up against  Minnesota Vikings defense this week who aren't very successful against opposing WR's. Look for Decker to do some damage.



Quarterbacks

Eli Manning - New York Giants




Eli Manning has had a very solid season so far this year. This week, he shouldn't slow down going up against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers statistically haven't been very successful against opposing QB's so look for Eli to to capitalize on this. This game should show both teams being very productive offensively.

Week 12 Highlights

Week 12 provided a number of players with big performances. These include:

Beanie Wells - Arizona Cardinals



Wells went off in Week 12. Period. Busting a staggering 228 yards and a touchdown, Wells was by far the most effective fantasy runner last week. Wells has struggled in the past couple weeks and seemed to have tweaked his knee during last week's game, however, after this weeks performance, he should be reliable heaidng into the future.

Laurent Robinson - Dallas Cowboys

Laurent Robinson Brandon Spikes #55 of the New England Patriots stops Laurent Robinson #81 of the Dallas Cowboys in the second half against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on October 16, 2011 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The Patriots won 20-16.

Robinson has really developed as a quality fantasy option this season. Last week he continued his success, posting 80 recieving yards and a pair of TDs. QB Tony Romo and Robinson have solified a viable relationship and this should continue, especially without the presence of WR Miles Austin in the mix.

Jimmy Graham - New Orleans Saints 



Jimmy Graham had another successful week, catching 85 yards and scoring two touchdowns. He continues to have a very positive season as arguebly the most productive tight end in the league. Graham puts up 'reciever numbers' consistently and is proven to be one of the top rookies this season.

Hot Start for the Monday Night - Week 12

Drew Brees - New Orleans Saints



Brees is a top 5 fantasy QB this season and continues to shine as one of the best in the league. He is currently coming off a buy and is up against the New York Giants monday night. This game should be a high scoring affair with both offenses doing big things. Look for Brees to have a stellar game and continue his success as a top fantasy quarterback.

Play of the Week

WEEK 11

LeGarrette Blount - Tampa Bay Buccaneers



Blount pulls off a 54 yard TD run against the Green Bay Packers, and arguably one of the best runs of the year.

Start of the Week - Week 11

Marshawn Lynch - Seattle Seahawks




Lynch has been on fire lately, rushing over a 100 yards and scoring a touchdown  in each of the last two weeks. The Seahawks' offensive line is facing a couple key injuries this week but Lynch should still put up decent numbers. Seattle is facing a Rams defense that isn't particularly good so we should see 'Beast Mode' capitalize on this.

Week 10 Must Starts

Quarterbacks

Tim Tebow - Denver Broncos




This season, Tim Tebow has been very successful when starting. Last week, he played his best game of the season scoring 28.7 points and leading the Broncos to a very nice win against the Oakland Raiders. This week, he is up against a weak Kansas City defense, so look for Tebow to come out strong once again.

Running Backs


Chris Johnson - Tennessee Titans



Johnson has had a very poor season this year, only posting two games with 100+ yards. Last week was one of these performances so Johnson is starting to turn back into his normal self. The Titans are up against the Carolina Panthers Sunday who have the worst defense against opposing RB's so hopefully Johnson can keep it rolling.

Wide Receivers


Santonio Holmes - New York Jets




Touchdown wise, Holmes has been hot lately, scoring 3 in the last games. The Jets are up against a weak New England Patriots pass defense and with decent play out of QB Mark Sanchez, Holmes should take advantage of this opportunity.

Big Performances from Week 9

RB - Willis McGahee - Denver Broncos


McGahee had an impressive 162 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in a big win for the Denver Broncos against the Oakland Raiders. His performance this year hasn't been spectacular but this game definitely boosts his his value.

WR - Vincent Jackson - San Diego Chargers
Vincent Jackson Of The Chargers
Jackson began the season off putting up quality numbers as a number 1 fantasy wide receiver. The last few weeks he has struggled a bit but, after this Sunday, he seems to be back on track. Jackson posted 141 receiving yards as well as a very nice 3 touchdown performance.
