Before we get into my picks for Week 13, we have a special guest making some picks for us as well.
Jonathan Bales is a fantasy guru if there ever was one. Founder of The DC Times. Writer at NY Times, DallasCowboys.com , NBC, ABC, DMN, BR, RotoWire, 4for4. Author of Fantasy Football for Smart People books.
Here are his picks and reasons why:
Josh McCown, E.J. Manuel, Jamaal Charles, Andre Brown, Kendall Wright, Alshon Jeffery, Rob Gronkowski, Stevie Johnson, Keenan Allen.
Typically like going low on QB in tourneys b/c it’s a little contrarian and there isn’t quite as much deviation there.
Charles a must-play pretty much everywhere to me because no one else has a high-ceiling/high-floor combo to that extent.
I think I’ll be paying for Gronkowski on most sites from here on out, at least until he separates more from the pack in terms of salary
And then at WR, I typically favor big, red zone-relevant players, but I think Wright has a little extra value/high floor on PPR sites.

Rather than choosing a few players at each tier, focusing on one lineup seems to be the best way to win. This lineup is used for many head to head match-ups and in multiplier tournaments. If you want to maintain a steady flow of cash, play the head to head games. But if you are looking to “go big or go home” try the multiplier tournaments.
Here is my lineup for this week.
StarStreet’s scoring system is a full point PPR, which allows us to go cheap on running backs and have a successful week. My two running backs are Pierre Thomas and Gio Bernard. Thomas has a tough matchup against the Seahawks, but has not disappointed this year in PPR formats. Gio Bernard is coming off a bye week and should be healthy for the first time in a month. He is the top back in Cincinnati and against the Chargers he could be a top five fantasy back.
I decided to go heavy at wide receiver, Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall are two of the top fantasy receivers in the NFL, and for this week they are each worth the price against the cap. Calvin Johnson should have a huge game on Thanksgiving and Brandon Marshall faces off against the Vikings porous secondary.
In the two FLEX spots, I went with two guys who are safe for their cap hit. Antonio Brown is matchup-proof as he showed everyone last week against Joe Haden, and should continue to rack up fantasy points each and every week. Rod Streater has become the top target in Oakland, and is worth $8,200 each and every week with Matt McGloin at the helm. Streater has 12.3 and 21.2 fantasy points in the last two weeks.
At tight end, Jimmy Graham has a tough matchup facing the Seahawks defense, but how often is Jimmy Graham going to cost under $12,000?
I have decided to go cheap at the quarterback position this week, but it will pay dividends because of the matchups. Matt Flynn seems to be a star with the Packers, and no one can figure out why. At $9,300 anything over 15 fantasy points is acceptable, and Flynn should be able to meet that this Thanksgiving. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a very good fantasy option since taking over for the injured Jake Locker. In his last three games, he has 61 fantasy points on StarStreet, a great value at under $11,000.
