This year more than ever it has been difficult to make decisions about fantasy football lineups because of injuries, byes, and Covid-19 concerns. This week’s playoffs may start in some fantasy leagues and owners may have two quarterbacks on their roster that they have been flipping between all season. Deciding between the two could be the difference between winning and losing this week. For owners who have to stream a quarterback this week, it may be difficult to choose who to put into the lineup.
For those who are not in the playoffs yet, there is little time left during the fantasy football regular season. Every game that’s left is more important than the last to guarantee a spot in your league’s fantasy football playoffs. Here are quarterback rankings for Week 13 of the 2020 NFL Season.
*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*
(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)
Must Start- a player who is in your lineup regardless of the matchup or most circumstances. They Will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and in most weeks.
Starter- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a high floor.
Low-End Starter- a player who should be started in most lineups but can possibly bottom out and finish below average on a given week.
Streamer- a player who could be a perfect replacement for a starter for a week or two. Starting this player may not win you your lineup but they will make sure that your production out of that position will not lose you your matchup either.
Deep League Streamer- a player who could fill a void at a position in a deeper league. Their ceiling may be close to average point production at the position but their floor is enough to get through the week.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday
QB17 Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions
Despite not having his number one receiver for most of the season Matthew Stafford has played decently well. There is a solid chance Kenny Golladay returns this week against the Green Bay Packers this week. If Golladay is to miss another game, Stafford would drop to QB19 for the week between Teddy Bridgewater and Andy Dalton.
QB23 Daniel Jones, New York Giants
Last week Daniel Jones missed the Giants game against the Seattle Seahawks because of a hamstring issue. He is slated to return this week, but if Jones was to have a setback at practice and not play Colt McCoy would become QB28 on the week between Tua Tagovailoa and Drew Lock.
