Fantasy football’s top-three quarterbacks exploded in Week 12. Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts combined for nine touchdowns and posted season-high fantasy points against each other, while Dak Prescott recorded his third four-touchdown game in five weeks. Incredible. Turning to my Week 13 quarterback rankings, Prescott and Hurts are the top two signal-callers. Josh Allen is on the bye-week shelf, joined by Lamar Jackson, Justin Fields, Joshua Dobbs, Aidan O’Connell, and Tommy DeVito.
Injuries to monitor for Week 13
- Kenny Pickett is dealing with ankle discomfort. It doesn’t sound serious, but it’s worth watching as the week progresses.
- Dorian Thompson-Robinson is in the league’s concussion protocol, and his Week 13 status is unclear. If he can’t suit up, veteran Joe Flacco will get the start against the Rams.
Bye Weeks: BAL, BUF, CHI, LVR, MIN, NYG
- Tua Tagovailoa had a Week 12 to forget, throwing for 243 yards with one touchdown and two picks against the Jets. It was the first time he failed to score double-digit fantasy points this season. However, Tagovailoa has a prime opportunity to rebound in Week 13 against a leaky Commanders defense. Washington has ceded the most fantasy points and touchdowns to quarterbacks this season. They’ve also allowed the second-most passing yards to signal-callers. Tagovailoa and company could explode this week. He ranks as the QB3 in my Week 13 quarterback rankings.
- Brock Purdy is coming off one of his worst fantasy performances of the season. He completed 21 of 30 pass attempts for 209 yards, one touchdown, and one interception against the Seahawks. But look for Purdy to bounce back in Week 13. He gets a favorable matchup against an Eagles defense that has allowed the most passing attempts, fourth-most passing yards, and second-most passing touchdowns to the position. Additionally, quarterbacks are averaging 21.5 fantasy points per game against Philadelphia, the second-most on the year. I’m high on Purdy this week, as he ranks as my QB6.
- The pass-happy ways of the Commanders have largely boosted Sam Howell‘s fantasy value this season. He leads the league in pass attempts and yards and has thrown 300+ yards in four of his past five games, ranking as the QB5 during that span. Howell should continue to sling the ball when Washington hosts Miami in Week 13. The Dolphins have scored the second-most points this season, and Howell will likely need to throw it a ton in order to keep pace. Miami’s defense is middle-of-the-pack, so look for Howell to put up another 300+ yards in Week 13. He’s a top-10 quarterback this week.
- There’s nothing flashy about Russell Wilson, but he’s been one of the steadier quarterbacks this season. He’s also been solid of late, scoring multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games and not throwing an interception in his last five. Additionally, Wilson has racked up the eighth-most yards rushing yards at the position. Wilson should continue to post strong fantasy numbers in Week 13. He faces a Texans defense that has given up the seventh-most passing yards and eighth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Houston has also allowed five rushing touchdowns to the position, tied for league-most. Wilson should be able to take advantage and is a back-end QB1 in my Week 13 quarterback rankings.
