It's playoff time in fantasy football land. Hopefully you've made it this far, and the lucky ones out there are sitting pretty with a bye in the first round. For the rest of us, it's win or go home! Make sure you also check out our waiver pickups and our week 13 injury wrap-up.
If you're in a two QB league, Kirk Cousins is a streaming/bench option that might be worth checking out this week. He does travel to Chicago, but the Bears have been weak this year and DeSean Jackson is demanding the ball and should put up a big game.
Matt Stafford is just what the Rams defense needs to get back on the right track. Keep Stafford on your bench in two QB leagues, as he's struggled all year long and goes back on the road after he couldn't keep up the magic from Thanksgiving.
Ryan Mathews is expected back this week, and after seeing DeMarco Murray get only 8 carries last week, Mathews is a guy that could reach RB2 numbers this week. Keep an eye on the injury report later in the week and throw Mathews into your flex if you need a fill in.
Keep an eye on C.J. Anderson's injury status, but even if he goes, I'd recommend sitting him. Anderson has been inconsistent, and the Broncos are not afraid to just lean on one of the guys on any given week. This week, that guy is more likely to be Ronnie Hillman.
Tavon Austin is a decent flex play this week, as the Rams get a chance to get healthy against the Lions. Austin is a gadgety guy, and that's exactly what can spark the Rams offense. I predict that Austin will have two TD's this week.
Golden Tate is a guy who people may still be holding on to hope for, but this week he's our #48 WR. Keep him on your bench - the Lions are who we thought they were.
