Week 13: Position Picks Breakdown

There’s nothing like December football to me. It’s cold, the playoffs are on the line, and you find out who wants to win. In December, teams need  their play makers to rise to the occasion. The guys that I see rising to the occasion this weekend are the following:

QB

Andy  Dalton vs. Cleveland Browns

Cincinnati’s passing weapons are too much for the Browns to stop. Dalton threw three touchdown passes the first time these teams faced off this season. Look for more of the same this game.

Other: Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. N.Y.  Giants

RB

C.J. Anderson vs. San Diego

I know that Ronnie Hillman will start against the Chargers, however I see Anderson having the more productive day. The Broncos ground game has really come on lately, averaging 174.5 yards the last 2 games. Anderson exploded for 113 yards & two TDs in their win versus the Patriots. Look for him to have a monster game versus the Chargers’ 26th-ranked run defense.

WR

Eric Decker vs. N.Y. Giants

Decker/Brandon  Marshall will both be great plays against the lowly Giants pass defense. Decker has a TD reception in four out-of-the-last five games. I assume Marshall will get more attention from the Giants secondary, leaving Decker room to roam.

A.J. Green vs. Cleveland

Dalton is my QB this week, therefore I expect one of his receivers to have a big game. I know Tyler Eifert went off for three TDs when these two teams met in week 9, but I’m picking Green in the rematch. Green will face a Browns defense that has a banged up secondary and surrendered 23 pass TDs.

TE

Scott Chandler vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Chandler was targeted 11 times versus the Broncos with Rob Gronkowski playing the majority of that game. Chandler finished with 5 receptions and a TD. Now that Gronkowski is out, expect Chandler to reap the benefits. Chandler by no means is as dominant as Gronkowski, however he’s no slouch either.

Defense

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns

Cincinnati has the NFL’s top-ranked scoring defense, while Cleveland is starting Austin Davis, who was the 3rd-string QB at the beginning of the season. This is a BAD matchup for the Browns offense.

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
