Week #13 Game by Game Projections  By Ryan Schoon

 Week #13.....nearly playoff time in the fantasy world!  How are you sitting?  I'm in for one league and need to win out for another.  This week starts out with a big game on Thursday between the Saints and Falcons and finishes with the G-Men vs the Redskins on Monday night!  Great week of football ahead.

D           5              

Summary:   The Saints are in MUST win mode....they should pull out all the stops!  The Falcons pulled out a nice win last week against the Bucs and the looked better than in past weeks.  If the Falcons want to make a statement this is the game to do it in.  We all know Drew Brees is going to get his 3 touchdowns...the real question for me is what will Matt Ryan do?  Big game and I'm going to take the Falcons at home by 3 little points.

Summary:  Jags are a different team with Henne at the helm....Cecil Shorts and Marcedes Lewis are fantasy relevant each week with Henne at QB.  The Bills are sucking on epic levels.  Couldn't put any points up on the Colts last week and Fitzpatrick only threw for 180 yards....where is the Fitzpatrick from 2011?  Someone put an APB out for him...quick!  I like the Jags to handle business and get the win.

D           3 D         1 14

Summary:  Looks like you need to go pick up Michael Bush.  Forte went down with an ankle injury and it didn't look good...he didn't come back and I'd guess he'll miss a game or two.  The Bears defense will dominate the Seahawks in this one and I like Cutler to hook up with Marshall as well.  Should be Bears at home rolling.....

K Adam Vinatieri         6 K Jason Hanson         9
D           3 D           3

Summary:  Interesting game here.  The Colts are playing well and the Lions are pretty much out of the playoff picture.  The Lions can put up points quickly with Stafford to Calvin, Young, Broyles and Pettigrew and they're at home.  Luck to Hilton and Wayne should be pretty much at will against the Lions secondary.  I like a close game with good fantasy points all the way around. I'll take the Lions at home after the screw job on Thanksgiving.

Summary:  This should be a complete ARSE kicking!  I like the Packers at Lambeau.  Jennings could be back...so keep an eye on that this week.  He was questionable week 12.  Ponder to Wright has been pretty good with Harvin out but I think Harvin will be back this week.  AP will score but I just don't see the Vikings putting up enough points to win this game.  Expect a lot of Lambeau leaps, especially after the ass kicking they took by the G-Men..they'll be out to redeem themselves.

Summary:   I'm taking the Texans here...no secret I think the Titans suck and the stats back it up.  The Titans have one of the worst defenses on the planet...Foster and Schaub should rip them apart.  Chris Johnson will be okay for you and that's about it.  Texans should roll here.

Summary:  Battle of the bad.....I'm going to take Cam and the Panthers here and it's because KC has no passing game and they rotate 3 backs through and don't just ride Charles.  I'm trying to figure out how Romeo still has a head coaching job?  Brady Quinn?  Seriously?  Go Panthers!

D         1 14 D           2

Summary:   I like the Rams and I think down the road (In the future) they'll be a good team but right now they just can't hang with the Niners and that Defense.  Kaepernick is clearly the QB of the now and the future for the Niners and he'll only get better.  I like the Niners to dominate this game.

K Stephen Gostkowski         8 K Dan Carpenter         5
D           6 D           4

 Summary:  I think the Pats are back to form after the Thanksgiving day game and they get a couple extra days of rest to get every body healthy.....namely Hernandez.  The Dolphins have fallen off a bit and I think it's due to the play of Tannehill....Yes I know they won last week but that's against Seattle, not New England.  Pats should kill'em.

K Jay Feely         4 K Nick Folk         5
D           6 D           6

 Summary:  The carrousel of QB's continues for the Cards.  Is Kolb ready to come back yet?  Please tell me he's ready to return this week because the other two are KILLING the fantasy value of one of the best wide receivers in the game (LFitz).  Beanie is back...two scores last week helped out but couldn't overcome the 4 picks by Lindley.  The Jets aren't in much better shape at QB with Suckchez and Teblow.  I'll take the home team in this one UNLESS Kolb returns....then I'll take the Cards.

 Summary:  I'm soooooo looking forward to this game!  Two good teams facing off with playoff implications and great fantasy points all over the place.  I like Martin and VJack for the Bucs and Manning and Thomas for the Broncos.  I'm going with the Broncos at home and another tough loss for the Bucs.  Sorry, Bucs fans.

K Mike Nugent         9 D           4
D           5              

 Summary:  I'm buying the Bengals....and selling the Chargers.  This could be a high scoring game, though...Rivers to Alexander and Floyd and Dalton to Green and Sanu.  I think the difference in this game will be the running game and the Bengals are running BJGE well while Mathews has sucked bad.  I'll take the Bengals on the road in a big win.

 Summary:  The Raiders flat out suck....they can't beat anyone and that includes the Browns.  I like Cleveland to come in and run all over this Raiders defense.  Big game for Trent Richardson.  Palmer will toss a couple TD's but I like the Browns to win this game.

 Summary:  The Steelers need Big Ben back in the worst way.  It's not even a matter of won't win this game...they CAN'T win this game.  The Ravens at home will run Rice, pass to Rice and Flacco will hit Torrey Smith.  Batch is old and he wasn't ever that good to begin with.  Ravens at home get the win and put the Steelers season on the brink.

Summary:  I don't care who starts at QB for the Eagles....they're a mess.  And when I say they're a mess, I mean even more of a mess than the Cowboys!  And that my friends is sayin something!  Romo and the Boys should handle business and win this game at home with Dez and Felix leading the way.

 Summary:   Hmm...I soooo want to pick the Redskins here.  RG3 is hands down the rookie of the year and Alfred Morris is quietly putting up some solid numbers.  Garcon is back and he really adds another aspect to this offense.  The problem for me is the G-Men are good, Eli has Nicks and Cruz and the Giants defense will get after RG3.  I think it'll be close....but I think the G-Men pull it out.
