Another week of the NFL regular season has passed, with fantasy playoffs looming. Week 14 is the beginning of most leagues playoffs.

A win this week can push many into playoff contention, with every decision becoming that more important.

There are no bye weeks remaining, allowing everyone to have a fully-loaded roster just in time for playoffs.

Unless you’re a Melvin Gordon owner, who’ll be scrambling for a replacement this week. Austin Ekeler is a good way to go—if available— especially with no one threatening to take touches from him.

Ekeler is currently owned in 79.2% of ESPN leagues. I’d definitely grab him if you’re in need of a running back in Week 13.

T.J. Yeldon and Gus Edwards are other RBs I’d consider if you’re in desperate need of someone at your RB spots. Both are owned in under 55% of ESPN leagues, making it a possibility he’s available in your league.

Now onto my picks for Week 13. My picks are based on PPR (points per reception) scoring. They can be used in either season-long or DFS (daily fantasy sports) leagues.

Here’s who I like—or don’t like in Week 13.
