Welcome to my quarterback rankings and top streamers for Week 13 fantasy football.
It was another good week for fantasy quarterback play in Week 12, with 7 quarterbacks scoring more than 20 points, though none breached the 30 point mark this week. Josh Allen led the way last week with 26.7 points against the Saints, which was his highest score since Week 8 and a timely return to form with the fantasy playoffs on the horizon. In terms of my recommendations, both my stream of the week in Taylor Heinicke and my DFS start of the week in Cam Newton were both disasters. Heinicke led the Football Team to victory but scored just 11.22 points against the Seahawk. Cam Newton completed just five passes and if it were not for his rushing touchdown, would have scored less than one fantasy point last week. Bad times.
We have four teams on bye in Week 13, so there’s no Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Baker Mayfield or Ryan Tannehill to rank this week. I continue to look to build on what I’ve seen so far to give you my fantasy football quarterback rankings for this week, and will break down the key streamers (% rostered via Sleeper) and my favorite value DFS plays for the week ahead (price via DraftKings).
These rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any quarterback news drops to see how it is reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific quarterback rankings or starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.
Stream of the Week: Taysom Hill vs Dallas Cowboys (11% rostered)
What can we expect from Hill as he makes his first start of 2021? When he played consistently towards the back end of 2020 he was a valuable fantasy asset, averaging 20.3 points from Weeks 11-16. There’s a high potential ceiling there and if you are struggling for a viable QB option this week, Hill is likely on your waiver wire for a one week rental.
Alternative streamer – Teddy Bridgewater @ Kansas City Chiefs (25% rostered)
DFS Play of the Week: Tom Brady ($7,200) @ Atlanta Falcons
Brady’s fantasy scoring has been down in recent compared to his pre-bye form, but the Falcons offer him the chance to hit the heights of earlier in the season. I have ranked Brady as my QB1 of Week 13 so to get him as the QB4 in terms of his DFS salary is something I’m very comfortable with this week.
Alternative DFS play – Joe Burrow ($6,300) vs Los Angeles Chargers
