Week 13 IDP Rankings

When Morgan Burnett is healthy and on the field, he has proven himself as a must-start.

It’s Week 13 of the NFL season and fantasy playoffs are either underway or right around the corner for teams that are looking to win a fantasy championship. This is the time of year where you know what your roster is made of and you have a sense of if you are a true contender or not. The IDP landscape is constantly changing, and no time more than in the last month of the year.

Set your team up for success now, and thank yourself later when you’re holding the trophy!

Trending Up: Akiem Hicks (DE, CHI)

After recording seven sacks in the Bears first eight games this season, Akiem Hicks has cooled off and hasn’t taken down a quarterback in the last three weeks, but there are reasons to be optimistic that Hicks will end the season on a hot streak. The biggest of those reasons is that Chicago’s remaining schedule is very favorable to pass rushers. Over the next four weeks, the Bears will see San Francisco, Cincinnati, Detroit, and Cleveland. The 49ers, Lions, and Browns are among only seven teams across the whole league who have allowed at least 35 sacks this season.


Trending Down: Myles Garrett (DE, CLE)

While Myles Garrett still remains one of my top dynasty options at defensive line, I’m less than optimistic about the numbers he will accrue over the last five weeks of the 2017 season. The biggest knock against Garrett is losing fellow linemate Emmanuel Ogbah for the season after Ogbah broke his foot in Cleveland’s Week 11 loss to the Jaguars. Garrett will now draw more attention from opposing offensive coordinators, and an extra blocker will be able to shift over and help block Garrett more often than before. Hold Garrett in all dynasty formats, as he should be back to full value to start the 2018 season.

Trending Up: Reggie Ragland (ILB, KC)

Reggie Ragland has found new life with his new team in Kansas City after he was traded away from Buffalo for just a fourth-round pick, just one year after the Bills drafted Ragland 41st-overall in the 2016 NFL Draft. Ragland took a couple of months to adapt and learn the Chiefs playbook, but he has hit his stride late in the season and is now taking snaps away from veteran Derrick Johnson. Ragland is a great hold going into the 2018 season, where I think he has potential to put up LB2 numbers.


Trending Down: Jarrad Davis (MLB, DET)

Rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis has been disappointing for Lions’ fans as a first-round pick who was expected to immediately come in and fill a needed hole on defense as an every-down player at middle linebacker. Davis started the season off well, but in recent weeks has shown to be a liability in pass coverage which has lead the Lions to pull Davis off the field for rookie safety Teez Tabor in third-down passing situations. Davis could possibly still be experiencing some symptoms from an early-season concussion that caused him to miss time, I still have high hopes that he can be in the LB1 tier next season and beyond.

Patrick Chung is on a hot streak in New England and fantasy owners need to take notice.

Trending Up: Patrick Chung (SS, NE)

After being in Devin McCourty’s shadow for most of this season because of McCourty’s surprise production, Patrick Chung has now shown that he can be just as productive as the other New England safety. Chung has recorded 19 tackles and recovered two fumbles in the Patriots last two games and now the Patriots head to Buffalo where the Bills will attack New England with LeSean McCoy and a run-heavy offense.

Trending Down: Kevin Byard (FS, TEN)

Kevin Byard was one of fantasy’s most popular safeties after a sophomore season breakout in the first half of 2017. Things have cooled down lately though for Byard, whose numbers have dropped since his teammate Jonathan Cyprien has returned to the field. Byard has averaged less than four total tackles per game since Cyprien’s return, and from here until the end of the season, Byard’s fantasy value will remain contingent on if he can expand upon his NFL-leading six interceptions.
