on

Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 13 Vampire League Starters article!

I’m sorry, guys, for missing Week 12, I was dealing with the flu, and I hope you guys were victorious last week despite my absence!

Not only did I get my ass kicked by the flu, but I was also dealt a loss last week.

I’m sitting in the last playoff spot right now and need to win the next two weeks to make sure I make the playoffs. 

So, let’s try to make sure we clinch those playoffs and add some extra players to our rosters for the playoff runs.

Quarterback

Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints

It looks like Taysom Hill will be the new quarterback for the Saints. Arguments can be made that Taysom Hill isn’t a good quarterback, but he is a good fantasy quarterback because of his rushing ability.

During Week 11 to Week 14 of the 2020 season (when Hill started), he was the QB6 during that span. He averaged 21.5 Fantasy points during those weeks as well! So, it is reasonable to believe that Hill can have that similar kind of production in Week 13 against the Cowboys.

The Cowboys have been so-so against quarterbacks this season, allowing 17.3 Fantasy points. 

Running Backs

Boston Scott, Philadelphia Eagles

Jordan Howard did not practice on Wednesday, which means you could miss another game which is good news for Boston Scott.

Scott has been a reliable contributor for the Eagles’ offense, averaging 52.2 rushing yards in his last five games, and has scored three touchdowns during that span. He has the perfect matchup against the Jets in Week 13.

The Jets allow 112.4 rushing yards, 1.5 rushing touchdowns, 8.5 targets, and 63.5 receiving yards per game to running backs (35.5 Fantasy points per game).

Cordarrelle Patterson, Atlanta Falcons

He has returned and returned with a big nasty bang, 108 rushing yards, and two touchdowns in Week 12. 

Now Patterson has a decent matchup against the Buccaneers, who allow 22.3 Fantasy points per game to running backs.

Remember, Patterson had a great game last time he faced off against Tampa Bay (five receptions, 58 receiving yards, and two touchdowns).

Wide Receivers

Josh Reynolds, Detroit Lions

Reynolds had three receptions, 70 yards, and one touchdown in his first official start as a Lion. In Week 13, he has a great matchup against the Vikings, who allow the second-most Fantasy points to wide receivers.

The Vikings allow 41.7 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season.

 Remember, Josh Reynolds has played with Jared Goff before and seems to be the only receiving option (outside of TJ Hockenson) that has a connection with Goff.

Hunter Renfrow, Las Vegas Raiders

Renfrow has been getting a decent amount of targets in the Raiders offense, averaging 7.5 targets for this season and averaging 7.8 targets in his last five games.

Darren Waller will miss time with a knee injury, which means Renfrow is going to get an increased target share. We got a glimpse of it in Week 12, nine targets, eight receptions, and 134 yards.

In Week 13, Renfrow has a fantastic matchup against the Washington Football Team, who allow 39.39 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Plus, Washington allows seven targets and 57.6 yards to slot receivers per game (which is where Renfrow lineups mostly).

Tight End

Ryan Griffin, New York Jets

Another week and another tight end having a chance at a great game against the Eagles defense, and this week it’s Ryan Griffin.

The Eagles allow the most Fantasy points per game to tight ends (19.4 Fantasy points). They are allowing 8.5 targets and 73.1 yards per game to tight ends this season. So, Griffin has the chance for a boom week.

Flex

Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears

Allen Robinson is still not practicing, which means Darnell Mooney will be the Bears’ number one wide receiver. He has thrived in that role, averaging 12 targets and 122 yards in the Bears’ last two games without Robinson.

Mooney does have a tough matchup against the Cardinals, but if Kyler Murray comes back, the Bears will be down quickly and will be forced into the passing game.

Defense/Special Teams

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are playing the Texans, who allow 8.7 Fantasy points per game to defenses. That’s the only stat you need to start this unit.

About Travis Argo

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
