New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones likely shouldn't be considered in Week 4 versus the Chicago Bears. The former first-round pick has yet to record 200 passing yards in a game this season while tossing three total touchdowns in the first three weeks. The only thing that makes the Duke product a somewhat relevant quarterback is the fact he's rushed for 125 yards on 25 attempts to begin the season. With Sterling Shepard now out for the season, Jones now has an even more depleted wide receiver room entering Week 4. The Giants will likely lean on Saquon Barkley on Sunday, so the 25-year-old quarterback is a low-end quarterback option this week.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Chris Olave (concussion) put in another day of limited practice on Thursday in the portion open to the media. It's great news after Olave left to be evaluated for a head injury in the Week 12 loss to the Atlanta Falcons and never returned. It's also pretty significant with Michael Thomas (knee) on Injured Reserve and Rashid Shaheed (thigh) unlikely to play after getting hurt this past Sunday. Olave is the team's unquestioned top receiver when he's active, but he still needs to clear the league's concussion protocol to get the green light to play this Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Even if Olave is able to play, rookie A.T. Perry will be looking at an expanded role with Shaheed expected to be unavailable.
Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta rebounded from a down Week 11 performance against the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 on Thanksgiving. The rookie caught five passes for 47 yards and secured his fifth touchdown of the year. In Week 13, he'll face the New Orleans Saints, who have allowed the ninth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends this season. New Orleans is strong against wide receivers, meaning LaPorta could see additional targets on Sunday. Consider the 22-year-old a high-end TE1 once again for Week 13.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson (illness) sat out of practice on Thursday due to an illness. Johnson's absence from practice on Thursday has nothing to do with his lack of hustle on a loose ball in the Week 12 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. With another day of practice on Friday, there's a good chance Johnson will return for that and be removed from the final Week 13 injury report. We'd be surprised if he's not out there this Sunday against the visiting Arizona Cardinals. The 27-year-old has a lot of incentive to play hard this weekend after his poor effort last Sunday, especially with the fact that he has only seven receptions for 83 yards and no touchdowns on 20 targets in the last three games. Johnson has a nice bounce-back opportunity this weekend against the Cardinals' suspect defense.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams has hauled in just 12 passes on 23 targets for 184 yards and two touchdowns in seven games this season. Williams has made a few splash plays for the electric Detroit offense, but he continues to struggle to earn targets at a high rate. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jahmyr Gibbs, and Sam LaPorta eat up a ton of Jared Goff targets, so Williams is often utilized as a field-stretcher with few opportunities. In a week with six teams on a bye, consider him a touchdown-dependent flex option against the New Orleans Saints.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (quadriceps) is not practicing with the team on Thursday and is instead working off to the side. Allen also missed practice with the team on Wednesday, so he could be in danger of sitting out in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots unless he's able to do more on Friday. The team's top pass-catcher has also played through a shoulder injury in recent weeks, but it hasn't affected his production whatsoever, as he's gone over 100 yards in each of the last three games with 35 receptions (46 targets) and three touchdowns. The veteran wideout is already over 1,000 yards receiving on the year and has added seven touchdowns. Allen is a must-start in all fantasy lineups if he's active in Week 13. If he ends up being out or limited, Jalen Guyton and rookie first-rounder Quentin Johnston would be thrust into bigger roles.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin (neck) was added to the Week 13 injury report on Thursday after putting in a limited practice. It means that Godwin likely picked up a neck injury at Thursday's practice, which puts his availability in question for this Sunday's game against the visiting Carolina Panthers. We'll have a better idea of how serious the 27-year-old's neck injury is when the team practices one final time this week on Friday. If Godwin is unable to play in Week 13, rookie Try Palmer would serve as quarterback Baker Mayfield's No. 2 receiver behind Mike Evans. Godwin has taken a clear back seat to Evans in 2023 with Tom Brady now retired, and he's currently the WR39 in half-PPR scoring through 12 weeks of play.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has caught 82 passes for 993 yards and five touchdowns in 11 games this season. The third-year pro has remained a fantasy superstar, and he's one of the most consistent fantasy assets in the NFL. St. Brown scored at least 14.2 PPR fantasy points in every game this season, and he has at least 19 fantasy points in six contests. There is never a matchup that warrants considering benching the superstar wideout, so continue to roll with in Week 13, despite facing a defense that has allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers.
Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs was on a hot streak from Week 7 to Week 11, finishing no lower than the weekly RB6 (half-PPR) over a four-game stretch. However, the rookie speedster had a down week against the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, totaling just 9.3 fantasy points. Based on his resume before that, he remains a must-start against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. It's worth noting David Montgomery (foot) is dealing with a foot injury. There have been no reports that Montgomery is in danger of missing Week 13. If he does, Gibbs has overall RB1 upside. If Montgomery is active, both players have at least RB2 outlooks and RB1 ceilings.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (Achilles) was limited in Thursday's practice ahead of the team's Week 13 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mingo has had a quiet debut season and given the state of Carolina's weak offense there is little hope down the stretch for a true breakout. In Week 12 he came close to matching his season-high of 62 yards with a four-catch, 60-yard performance against the Tennessee Titans. The rookie was a new addition to the injury report so Friday's report will clear the picture regarding his status for Sunday's game. If the issue lingers and he is limited or out against the Bucs, DJ Chark and Terrace Marshall should see a bit more work.
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has committed at least two turnovers in each of his last two games, but he's also thrown two touchdowns in each of his last three games. Despite the turnover woes, Goff hasn't finished as lower than QB16 since Week 8. That said, he remains a low-end QB1 fantasy option against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. New Orleans has allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game this year, but the Lions' offense is matchup-proof when it's rolling. He needs a few touchdown tosses to pay off for fantasy managers, but he's proven to be capable of just that for most of the 2023 season
