Week 13 fantasy football rankings

Below are Week 13 fantasy football rankings based on potential performance in this week's games for quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, kicker and team defense.

1 Tony Romo, Dallas vs. Philadelphia ...No team allows more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and Romo is on fire
2 Andrew Luck, Indianapolis vs. Washington

6 Drew Brees, New Orleans at Pittsburgh 
7 Tom Brady, New England at Green Bay

12 Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants at Jacksonville 
13 Philip Rivers, San Diego at Baltimore

Running Back

1 Le'Veon Bell, Pittsburgh vs. New Orleans

3 Jamaal Charles, Kansas City vs. Denver 
4 Eddie Lacy, Green Bay vs. New England 
5 C.J. Anderson, Denver at Kansas City ...Anderson has been the number one running back over the last three weeks
6 Arian Foster, Houston vs. Tennessee ...Foster (groin) is expected back this week and this ranking assumes so
7 LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia at Dallas 
8 Rashad Jennings, N.Y. Giants at Jacksonville ...As an added bonus, Jennings began his career with Jacksonville
9 Matt Forte, Chicago at Detroit 
10 Justin Forsett, Baltimore vs. San Diego ...Forsett is on pace for 1,619 yards from scrimmage and is currently 6th-best running back in PPR formats 
11 Andre Ellington, Arizona at Atlanta ...Over the last three games Ellington averages just 1.9 yards per carry, although this is a tempting match-up as Atlanta allows the most fantasy points to opposing running backs
12 Tre Mason, St. Louis vs. Oakland ...All in on Mason this week, great cheaper FanDuel #2 running back 
13 Marshawn Lynch, Seattle at San Francisco 
14 Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati at Tampa Bay ...Bernard made his return last week, although he averaged just 2.6 yards per attempt but should find it easier sledding this week

24 Latavius Murray, Oakland at St. Louis ...Wow, what a game in 4 carries - Murray (concussion) will need to be monitored for Week 13, also St. Louis has been tough of late and at home
