Fantasy football is winding down and fantasy football owners must be on their toes as teams look to rest their starters whenever possible. This won’t happen in the next few weeks but it is essential to take this into consideration. Fantasy football leagues can be turned upside down when a fantasy football owner is not attentive with their line up.
Three Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Start in Week 13 of Fantasy Football
Mario Manningham: New York Giants
Eli Manning has a temporary new number one receiver and it is Mario Manningham. The New York Giants are waiting for Hakeem Nicks to return and he should be back next week. Manningham has been a good second option and has been learning the system and his quarterback Manning’s style over the last few years and now is getting his chance. Start Mario Manningham in all fantasy football leagues unless two of the top six ranked fantasy football wide receivers are available on the team.
DeSean Jackson: Philadelphia Eagles
The New York Jets will face the worst pass defense in the NFL, the Houston Texans in week 13 of fantasy football. DeSean Jackson is the fastest wide out in the NFL and he is all about speed to the outside. Jackson will get behind the average corners and safeties on theHouston Texans and he will have a big fantasy football day with Michael Vick throwing the ball deep. Make sure to have DeSean Jackson in the line up early because this is a Thursday Night Football game on the NFL Network. Start DeSean Jackson in all fantasy football leagues.
Randy Moss: Tennessee Titans
Looking for a slight gamble? Randy Moss should be acclimated to the Tennessee Titans by the time they face their AFC South rivals, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Moss has a young quarterback he can intimidate into throwing him the football and this Jaguars defense is one of the worst against the pass in the NFL. Start Randy Moss in most fantasy football leagues unless two of the top eight ranked fantasy football wide receivers are on the roster.
Three Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit in Week 13 of Fantasy Football
Percy Harvin: Minnesota Vikings
Percy Harvin has been tough for most fantasy football owners this season. His quarterback, Brett Favre has been inconsistent and Harvin has had physical and mental issues all season. The team now has Sidney Rice back in the fold but they go against a surprisingly good Buffalo Bills pass defense that ranks among the top ten in the NFL. Sit Percy Harvin in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 12th or less among fantasy football wide receivers.
Steve Smith: Carolina Panthers
This season has been a throw away season for Steve Smith and the Carolina Panthers. For those fantasy football owners that have not dropped Smith this season, do not be encouraged by the Panthers going against a weak Seattle Seahawks defense. Smith has all but packed it up for the 2010 fantasy football season and he is running through the motions. Sit Steve Smith in all fantasy football leagues and look for a decent waiver wire replacement.
Michael Crabtree: San Francisco 49ers
Michael Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers go against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL, the Arizona Cardinals. Don’t let this sway an decision to start the young wide receiver. The San Francisco 49ers will do what they do best in this game and run the ball. There is an outside chance Crabtree gets a big touchdown but he is not worth the risk in this game. Sit Michael Crabtree in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 16th or less in the fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
