Week 13 of the 2023 NFL Season upon us and we’re down to the last third of the regular season. Now, quickly just to recap the drama of Week 12 before we dive into this week’s games.

The Broncos are the hottest team in the NFL, winners of five straight. Russell Wilson is cooking and they’re fighting to get back into the playoff conversation. The Texans lost a tough one to the Jaguars and may have given them the AFC South. Buffalo lost another heartbreaker and are currently on the outside looking in. Baltimore is in command of the AFC conference though and seem to be getting stronger.

In the NFC Philadelphia took a commanding lead and is now 10-1. They’ll continue to go through the toughest part of their schedule with San Francisco and Dallas on the horizon. The NFC South is up for grabs with Atlanta beating New Orleans. Detroit’s Jared Goff is playing his worst football at a bad time and Green Bay is making a charge. The 49ers are in cruise control, showing the Seahawks that they’re the class of the West, but the Rams may have found their second half Energizer battery in Kyren Williams.

We’ve sorted though all of this week’s matchups, storylines, and potential game scripts. We will help you make those tough decisions.┬áIn no particular order, here are our Fantasy Football Sits.

Quarterback
Sit: Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams vs. Cleveland Browns

The last quarterback to have a remarkable day against the Browns was Gardner Minshew back in Week 7, and before that it was Lamar Jackson in Week 4. Both of those quarterbacks needed to use their feet to score two touchdowns to go along with two additional touchdowns through the air. Matthew Stafford has no such mobility. He has one rushing touchdowns since 2017.

Now the Rams’ offensive line has been playing better of late. Just seven sacks allowed over the last five games combined. But it has also played ugly, like in Weeks 3-6, when they gave up 15 sacks. The good news is that CB Denzel Ward will not play, which helps slightly in the Cooper Kupp coverage, but DE Myles Garrett will play Sunday who could blow up a lot of plays if he is healthy enough to be disruptive in the Rams’ backfield.
