Davante Adams caught 1-of-7 targets for 17 yards Week 13 against the Texans.
Adams had some chances in this game, but he was only able to come down with one of them. That catch was a disappointment as well, as Adams just stepped out of bounds before running over several would-be tacklers for another 30 yards. Adams also dropped what would have been a long gain down the sideline and was overthrown deep down the field in the first half. Overall it was a very disappointing game, but Adams still was second on the team with seven targets and should avoid Richard Sherman on most of the snaps next week. Despite the bad day, Adams will remain a solid WR2 against Seattle.
Jordy Nelson caught 8-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown Week 13 against the Texans.
Nelson was the focal point of the passing game all day. With the offense focusing on short passes early, Nelson racked up five catches for 37 yards in the first half, but he got it going down the field after the break. His first long catch was a 32-yard touchdown where he was left all alone in the end zone. He also hauled in a deep pass down the right sideline in the fourth quarter, and he went over Kareem Jackson for a third-down conversion on the final touchdown drive. Still the No. 1 receiver even with Davante Adams surging, Nelson will remain a WR2 even with the Seahawks and Richard Sherman coming to town next week.
LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 13 beatdown of the Rams.
Almost all of Blount's production came on the first drive, where he rushed three times for 55 yards alone, including a 43-yard scoring sprint. Rather than put the ball in Blount's belly in clock-killing mode, the Patriots kept throwing short passes to the likes of Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Malcolm Mitchell. Blount obviously still paid Week 13 fantasy dividends. He'll be a tougher sell against Baltimore's stout front in Week 14.
Ty Montgomery rushed six times for 40 yards and caught 2-of-3 passes for 16 yards Week 13 against the Texans.
Montgomery might not be fully healthy, but he is clearly the Packers’ best backfield option. Finally given the ball late in the win, Montgomery ripped off multiple long runs to help put the game out of reach. That said, Montgomery has clearly been the best option since Eddie Lacy went down, and the Packers have been hesitant to give him the ball even when he has been healthy enough to play. With the Seahawks coming to town and dealing with an uncertain workload, it will be nearly impossible to trust Montgomery in the first round of the fantasy playoffs.
Lance Kendricks caught 2-of-5 targets for 13 yards in the Rams' Week 13 loss to the Patriots.
Kendricks will continue to have a painfully low floor with inept rookie Jared Goff under center when the Rams host the Falcons in Week 14.
James Starks rushed four times for one yard Week 13 against the Texans.
Starks opened the game as the starter, but he gained just one yard on his first three carries before riding the bench for the entirety of the second quarter. He returned to the lineup to start the second half, but he only saw one more carry. Incredibly inefficient with his work, it looks like Starks has fallen behind both Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael in the pecking order. He will not be worth starting next week against the Seahawks.
Brian Quick caught 5-of-8 targets for 48 yards in the Rams' Week 13 loss to the Patriots.
Quick has been hit or miss all year as the Rams' third receiver. He was Los Angeles' best receiver in this game, giving New England's secondary problems particularly in the first half. Albeit an intriguing talent, Quick has minimal value in fantasy leagues. We're excited to see where Quick lands as a 2017 free agent. The former second-round pick needs to get the heck out of L.A.
Carson Wentz completed 36-of-60 passes for 308 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Eagles' 32-14, Week 13 loss to the Bengals.
The whopping 60 pass attempts easily set a new season-high for the rookie. He could (shoulder) have been picked off at least two other times, and WLB Vontaze Burfict got him twice. Since starting 3-0 before the Week 4 bye, the Eagles have lost 7-of-9 and five of their last six. Wentz's lone touchdown was on a 4th-and-5 play to Zach Ertz on a busted coverage. It can't all be blamed on Wentz, however, as he has very little help in terms of playmakers. Jordan Matthews (ankle) missed this one, and Dorial Green-Beckham left early with a ribs injury. Wentz won't be a fantasy option next week against the Redskins.
