Start/sit advice for Week 13 in IDP leagues


You’re on the precipice between success and failure. Will it be postseason glory or an early shower? Week 13 of the fantasy football season is a big one, and at the crux of it, you’re going to have to make some difficult decisions come Sunday. Well, don’t despair, I’m here to make some of those calls a little easier as I’ll break down some starts and sits for this final week or regular season fantasy football in IDP leagues.

Defensive linemen

Start: Noah Spence, Tampa Bay

Buccaneers rookie Spence was a popular sleeper candidate in deeper IDP leagues, and he has lived up to that billing with some impressive displays in recent weeks. Spence saw more than 40 percent of snaps only once in the first six weeks of the season, and offered little fantasy value, recording just one sack and one total tackle over that period. From Week 7 onward, though, he’s been much more heavily involved, playing over 55 percent in all but one game, and taking a career-high 81 percent of snaps last week. The increased playing time has been reflected in a greatly improved fantasy output; 15 total tackles and 4.5 sacks. Week 13 pits Tampa against San Diego, who rank 10th against defensive linemen, so it’s an above-average matchup for a player trending firmly upward and seeing more use that he has all season. I’m expecting Spence to post DL2 numbers this week, but he could sneak into the bottom end of the DL1 tier if he can get his hands on Philip Rivers.
