Week 13 of the fantasy football season is nearly in the books which means for many leagues it’s nearing playoff time. It was an exciting weekend of football after a turkey-filled start to the fantasy football week on Thursday (recaps here). Here’s a quick look back at the Sunday that was in Week 13 with the studs, duds, and sleepers from each matchup.
Studs: There were three receivers who went off this Sunday starting with Josh Gordon who caught 10 passes for 261 yards and a pair of touchdowns becoming the first wide receiver ever with over 200 yards in consecutive weeks. His QB Brandon Weeden threw for a total of 370 yards and three touchdowns with a pair of interceptions and a lost fumble. Weeden’s great game says more about the Jags bad defense than his potential, and he also sustained a concussion so will have a long road back before facing the Patriots in week 14. On the Jacksonville side of things, Maurice Jones-Drew threw a touchdown this week to go with his 77 yards rushing and two catches for four more yards.
Duds: After starting out on fire, Jordan Cameron has come back to earth finishing with 43 yards on four catches in this game although he did get seven targets. Chris Ogbonnaya who I liked as a sleeper play failed to deliver for the second straight week getting just 20 yards rushing and 14 receiving on a pair of catches.
Sleepers: Although he didn’t find the end zone, Ace Sanders continues to get enough targets and catches to make him fantasy relevant. He finished today with eight catches for 67 yards and has 189 yards and 20 catches over the last three weeks. It’s also worth noting that the Jags contin to give carries to Jordan Todman as part of a rotation with MJD. He’s not really ownable yet, but is starting to show up on the fantasy fringes.
