Kenneth Walker III – RB – Seattle Seahawks

Kenneth Walker III has been a standout running back this season averaging ~19 points per-game in his last 7 starts. Walker also recorded two rushing touchdowns in his last game against the Raiders. While the Seahawks play a decent defense at SoFi Stadium against the Rams, Walker has proved himself against middle-of-the-pack defenses this season against the Cardinals and Raiders. Walker has hit his stride this season, so expect a big week.

Aaron Jones – RB – Green Bay Packers

Aaron Jones has been a surprising fantasy running back this year and is ranked seventh among fantasy backs. While Jones is averaging a reasonable 16.0 points per game, the Packers play a bad rush defense week 13 at Soldier Field against the Bears. Jones averages 16.6 touches per game, so expect the number of touches and fantasy points to go up this week for the Green Bay back.

Deshaun Watson – QB – Cleveland

Deshaun Watson hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2020, however, don’t overlook him. Watson was one of the best young quarterbacks in the 2019-20 season and was set to be a sure-fire star in Houston. However, after a lot of controversy and a season and a half on the bench, he makes his return against his former team who also happen to be the 30th ranked pass defense in football. The Browns have been electric under backup Jacoby Brisset, and with Watson only rostered in 43.1% of leagues, he may just be the solution to any quarterback troubles you may have.

Treylon Burks – WR – Tennessee

Treylon Burks has been quiet this year, and with an injury causing him to miss a chunk of the year, he hasn’t been able to prove much with this Titans offense. However, with Tannehill and the Titans heating up their pass offense these past few weeks, Burks has been seeing increased volume and fantasy points. Only averaging 5.9 points in weeks prior, these last 2 weeks he’s had back-to-back booms putting up 18.1 and 17 points.  Burks is catching fire and is rostered in only 37.5% of leagues, so you should look to add him to your bench.

Amari Cooper – WR – Cleveland Browns

Amari Cooper has been a dominant target for Jacoby Brissett. With the return of Deshaun Watson this upcoming week, fantasy managers may want to temper expectations for Cooper. As stated above, Deshaun Watson has not played since the 2020 season and may need a week or two to fully trust Cooper and Watson. Cooper is also playing the Houston Texans who are ranked fourth in passing defense. The Texans also held Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to 85 yards. Fantasy managers should temper expectations for Cooper this week.

Dalvin Cook – RB – Minnesota Vikings

Dalvin Cook has had 3 dominant weeks after his bye, but weeks 11 and 12 have been somewhat disappointing.  Expect Cook to continue that this week as he is facing a tough and young New York Jets defense
