Week Thirteen Automatics/Don’t Do Its

Follow@cimini It’s turkey day time and with that comes three NFL games. Tinkering with your fantasy starting lineups on Sunday just became that much harder. You have to be ready now with proper automatic starters/don’t do its for week thirteen. Automatics Tony Romo Stats are glaring when it comes to NFL secondary’s. Disguising a scheme for a team that can’t cover is near impossible. Each and every week Oakland’s secondary rears its head as a consistent defense that yields high yardage. Put in Romo on Thanksgiving to give your team a high teen to low twenty quarterback fantasy output. Carson Palmer It looks as if Bruce Arians has translated the second half of the season success he had in Indianapolis to the Arizona Cardinals. One of the brightest offensive minds in football has finally honed in Carson. Over the years with confidence behind him Palmer has shown to be a viable fantasy quarterback. Look for the Cardinals offense to continue to strike with efficiency this week against the Philadelphia Eagles. MJD Jacksonville has two more wins than most would have envisioned at this point of the season. The team has bought into Gus Bradley’s mentality defensively, which has made games much more manageable. Offensively the team has a fighting chance each game with Chad Henne under center. He has done a nice job running the offense with MJD out of the backfield or direct handoffs. Others: EJ Manuel, Ben Tate, Jared Cook, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Anquan Boldin, and Marques Colston Don’t Do Its Russ Wilson Typically personnel moves tend to lead to a public perception that creates an overwhelming incorrect reaction. With this matter involving the Seahawks secondary I believe for once you can side with the turn of events. Seattle has the record of achievement but has not been the dominant team it was a year ago at this time with less wins. Defensively they’ve been a shell of what they were a year ago and that has impacted the offense. Expect New Orleans to develop proper blitzes to attack Russ Wilson and company. Remember this is the same Saints team that suffered a mind boggling playoff exit to the 7-9 Seahawks a few years back. That still burns deep with the players remaining on the Saints roster. Philip Rivers Teams with physical defenses are the ones that the San Diego Chargers struggle against. Not often this year have the Chargers faced a team of the caliber of a Bengals defense. That should disrupt the short passing attack that the Chargers have in place. Philip has been error free for the most part this season but I wouldn’t be surprised to see his highest interception game of the season this week. DeSean Jackson For all the success the Eagles have had as of late, their season is still on the edge of the cliff of faltering. I expect that to happen this Sunday on their home field against the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona doesn’t get any primetime television exposure. Quietly though they boast one of the best defenses in football. They have the secondary and front seven to finally get Nick Foles to turn the football over. Others: Steven Jackson, Pierre Garcon, RG3, Peyton Manning, Antonio Brown, and Frank Gore
