Our weekly "Who to Start and Sit" column is part of FootballDocs In-season content. All of FootballDocs In-season content is 100% free.

After starting your studs (typically players ranked after week 5 in the top ~15 RBs, top ~ 10 WRs, top ~ 10 QBs, top ~3 TEs, top ~5 Defenses, and top...wait, no kicker is a fantasy football stud), the Docs will help you decide who to start and sit as we recommend players in our fantasy football start sit column that are not clear studs and can step in with a big game for your team this week. Consequently, we will not recommend who to start and sit with the top few players at each position in our weekly fantasy football start sit advice (given starts every week); however, we may occasionally recommend players ranked 15 - 25 overall due to some teams out there that will have multiple players at one position in this range but can only start one.  If we recommend such a player it does not mean we think they are not a stud, we are just trying to help those folks out there that may be in such a situation. We also recommend players to bench, so our fantasy football start sit column is sometimes referred to as fantasy football start bench column. Additionally, we offer Fantasy Football Weekly Rankings to help even further with some of those more difficult start sit decisions. Last, be sure to check us out every Tuesday as we do a Wrap-up on our advice - both good and bad.  In fact, every wrap-up is kept and posted as a permanent, public record of what we called and how good or bad the calls were. Why?

Three reasons:
1.  Accountability.
2.  Confidence in our analysis and recommendations.
3.  Because the Docs take winning every bit as seriously as you do.

FREE Fantasy Football Start Sit Advice
NFL Week 13

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Don't miss out on our FREE fantasy football weekly rankings to further help with your start / sit decisions!   Weekly Rankings Released every Thursday!

What time is it? Game time! What time is it? Game time! It's crunch time for geeks across this great land of ours as nerd fights ensue for those final fantasy football playoff spots. Folks are panicking, but now is not the time to panic. Cool heads and smooth calculators prevail, and we're here doing giving it our all to help bring a smile to your face once the smoke clears on Week 13. Geeks helping geeks... it's what we do. Game on!

Give 'em the rock (a.k.a. Start)

Alex Smith, QB, KC - Smith can be a dicey proposition because many weeks he is in the bottom half of QBs. This week he should return some nice value. He is playing the Falcons. They make every opposing QB look very good. Expect this to be a higher scoring affair for the Chiefs, and look for Smith to surprise.

Matthew Stafford, QB, DET - If you have been playing the matchups with Stafford, you haven't gotten a performance from Stafford with over 20 fantasy points since Week 7. Stafford did have a surprising day against Minnesota, but you probably still had better starting options. This week Stafford plays the Saints in New Orleans. You have to start Stafford this week.

Golden Tate, WR, DET - We really believe that Tate will have a great game against the Saints. Drew Brees puts up big numbers at home, so look for the Lions to work to keep pace. Tate should be the primary benefactor of a large workload.

Jordan Howard, RB, CHI - The 49ers are terrible against the run, so you should feel safe with Howard in your lineup. Howard should get close to 100 yards and a TD this week. Matt Barkley did enough last week to make the 49ers give him some respect. That will help provide running lanes for Howard.

Matt Forte, RB, NYJ - The Jets struggled against the Patriots last week, and that helped remove Forte from the game plan. This week the Jets get a very suspect run defense when facing the Colts. Forte should rebound for a solid day with around 100 all-purpose yards and a potential TD.

Let 'em warm up the pine (a.k.a. Sit)

Thomas Rawls, RB, SEA - While Rawls is still getting back into form, he was terrible last week against a decent matchup. Carolina has limited opposing RBs, so don't expect a big day from Rawls. Don't drop Rawls, but you can't trust him this week.

Allen Robinson, WR, JAX - Robinson has been a big disappointment this season thanks to terrible play from Blake Bortles. This week the Jaguars are facing a Denver defense that is clicking on all cylinders. Robinson will likely be removed from the game plan by the Broncos secondary.

Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR - The Seahawks defense does very well against bigger WRs because they have a very physical secondary. Benjamin will struggle to repeat his great performance from Week 12. If you have better options that Benjamin, you should look there in Week 13.
