Fantasy Football Checkdown: Week 13 Advice and Rankings

Fantasy Football Checkdown: Week 13

Week 12 was another hot and cold one for me. I nailed benching Dak Prescott and starting Cooper Kupp. But Marcus Mariota’s disappointing fantasy season hit an unexpected new low against the Colts, and the Texans surprisingly allowed Alex Collins to rumble for 60 yards and a score.

We’re not here to celebrate or dwell on the events of last week, though. (If you are looking for fun weekly recaps, have a listen to the ATS Checkdown podcast.) With many fantasy football league’s wrapping up their regular seasons this week, you can enter the playoffs on a high note (or build momentum for next year) by following the Fantasy Football Checkdown’s advice (see video) and positional rankings (below video).
