The Warhawks have lost six consecutive games, but Thomas has accounted for three touchdowns in each of the past two games and a Week 13 matchup at New Mexico State makes for a quality fantasy start.
Brian Hill, RB-Wyoming vs Boise State
Boise State is giving up 36.2 points per game in their previous five games and Wyoming’s run-heavy offense should prove productive for Hill’s fantasy owners.
Tevin Coleman, RB-Indiana at Ohio State
Penn State has been the only team this season to hold the talented junior running back to fewer than 100 rushing yards in a game. After breaking his three-game scoreless streak, Coleman is set for another big statistical week against the Buckeyes.
Mark Weisman, RB-Iowa at Wisconsin
Weisman is three scores away from tying the school record for career touchdowns, so when the Hawkeyes get near the goal line, expect a heavy dose of the bruising back.
Storm Woods, RB-Oregon State at Washington
Now that Terron Ward has been lost to a torn meniscus, Woods should assume a heavy load at running back for the Beavers. The junior back may not be a great play in full FBS formats, but those playing in Power-5 leagues have a chance to start a back with 20-carry potential in Week 13.
Jonnu Smith, TE-FIU at North Texas
Casey Pierce, TE-Kent State at Buffalo
Clive Walford, TE-Miami at Virginia
Bucky Hodges, TE-Virginia Tech at Wake Forest
EJ Bibbs, TE-Iowa State vs Texas Tech
Jimmay Mundine, TE-Kansas at Oklahoma
This list is for you guys playing in leagues which do not require starting a tight end. If you have been searching the waiver wire all week for some suitable receiver options, look no further. Each guy on this list is capable of posting receiver-type numbers, and in one of the biggest weeks of the fantasy season, a productive tight end may be your wild-card.
CJ Brown, QB-Maryland at Michigan
Brown has not accounted for more than two touchdowns in a game since the Terrapins’ season opener against James Madison and he has only thrown for more than 250 yards once this season.
Joe Gray, QB and Tyler Ervin, RB-San Jose State at Utah State
The Aggies defense is ranked No. 13 in scoring (19.4 ppg) and No. 12 in rushing yards allowed per game (109.7), and those numbers are enough to scare us aware from starting either player in Week 13.
Anu Solomon, QB-Arizona at Utah
In Solomon’s three PAC-12 games against Cal, Washington State, and Colorado, he threw 14 TD passes. In his four games against UCLA, USC, Washington, and Oregon, the freshman quarterback totaled three passing TDs. Furthermore, in the month of November, Solomon’s completion percentage is 44.8%.
Thomas Rawls, RB-Central Michigan vs Western Michigan
Rawls retired to the bench after just three carries in Week 12 and we fear that his return from injury will be a gradual process.
Marlon Mack, South Florida @ Memphis
Mike White entered the game in the fourth quarter and led the Bulls to a come from behind win last week at SMU. Surprisingly, running back Marlon Mack only ran for 79 yards against one of the worst run defenses in the FBS. Mack’s owners should throw in the towel this season with Memphis and Central Florida remaining on the schedule.
Desmond Roland and Tyreek Hill, RBs-Oklahoma State at Baylor
After winning five of their first six games, the Cowboys have dropped four straight. Oklahoma State only has one 100-yard game from a running back this season and the offense is currently struggling to score points.
Russell Hansbrough, RB-Missouri at Tennessee
Before last week’s 199-yard performance at Texas A&M, Hansbrough had only totaled 214 rushing yards in Missouri’s previous five SEC games. We are too late into the season to risk a single-digit fantasy performance from the junior running back on the road at Tennessee
