Chris Thomas’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 13

Ryan Tannehilll

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 fantasy starters like Tom Brady and Teddy Bridgewater won’t be playing this week. It could be difficult to decide who is the best streamer to replace one of them in a lineup. A fantasy roster could also have two starting-caliber quarterbacks. Deciding between the two could be the difference between winning and losing this week.

With so little time left during the fantasy football regular season every game that’s left is more important than the last to guarantee an owner 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)

Key:
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

QB7 Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans

Everything with Deshaun Watson is fine, even with Will Fuller suspended for the rest of the year, he is still a fantasy starter. But his ranking this week could change depending on the health of the Indianapolis Colts defense. If DeForest Buckner and Denico Autry are not activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list this week the Colts defense should play similar to how they played last week instead of like the elite defense they were earlier this season. If that is the case, Watson would rise to QB5 on the week in-between Kyler Murray and Ryan Tannehill.

QB9 Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Last year’s MVP was one of the many Baltimore Ravens to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list before their Week 12 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jackson has a chance to return in time for their game in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys. Despite a favorable matchup Robert Griffin III or Tracey McSorley would rank as QB22 on the week in between Nick Mullens and Colt McCoy. It would be better to leave any Ravens quarterback not named Lamar Jackson on the bench going forward.

QB15 Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

Last week the Miami Dolphins held Tua Tagovailoa out of the game against the New York Jets because of a thumb injury. Head coach Brian Flores has told the media on numerous occasions that if Tagovailoa is healthy he will be the Dolphins starter. However, if Tagovailoa is not healthy enough to start, Ryan Fitzpatrick will start again. If Fitzpatrick was to start he would be QB9 on the week between Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson in a favorable matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
