Weekly Rankings: Week 13 Value Meter

This article is part of our Weekly Rankings series.

Six Byes: BAL, BUF, CHI, LV, MIN, NYG

Welcome to the Weekly Value Meter Rankings. This is a guide to help you decide who to start and sit in a given week. It's is not a season-long ranking nor a draft guide, and it's also not really intended as a free agent guide. While I appreciate that you want my opinion on pickups, every league is different, and your decision on whether to add/drop a particular player might also be dictated by other factors than who is rated higher in a given week.

Here are my operating assumptions for the rankings:

- The RB/WR/TE position rankings are for PPR leagues.
- The Flex rankings are for Standard leagues.
- 1 point per 10 rushing/receiving yards.
- 1 point per 20 passing yards.
- 4 points per passing touchdowns.

These are the rankings I use when I make my start/sit decisions. Please consult the rankings first before asking "Should I start Patrick Mahomes or Bryce Young?"

These are my particular rankings. If you want a second opinion elsewhere on the site, you can see our Weekly Projections.

Each week, the first set of rankings will be posted on Tuesday night. I will then do a set of updates before kickoff on Thursday, and again before kickoff on Sunday morning.

When setting your lineups, make sure to refer to the NFL inactives to ensure all of your players are set to receive snaps.

Quarterbacks

1.Dak Prescott DAL vs. SEA
2.*Jalen Hurts PHI vs. SF
Note: Hurts was responsible for all five of the Eagles' touchdowns against the Bills - three passing and two rushing.
3.Tua Tagovailoa MIA at WAS
4.Patrick Mahomes KC at GB
5.C.J. Stroud HOU vs. DEN
6.Trevor Lawrence JAC vs. CIN
7.Jared Goff DET at NO
8.Brock Purdy SF at PHI
9.*Justin Herbert LAC at NE
Note: Herbert had to be checked for a concussion late in the loss to the Ravens.
10.Sam Howell WAS vs. MIA
11.*Gardner Minshew IND at TEN
Note: Minshew could be very busy this week against Tennessee with Jonathan Taylor out.
12.Kyler Murray ARZ at PIT
13.*Russell Wilson DEN at HOU
Note: The Broncos have converted Wilson into a game-manager, though we'll see if they'll have that luxury against the Texans this week.
14.*Baker Mayfield TB vs. CAR
Note: Mayfield injured his ankle on the first drive of the game against the Colts and missed the end of that drive, but later returned. An MRI taken Monday came back negative for ligament damage, though Mayfield remains sore. Full participant Wednesday.
15.Geno Smith SEA at DAL
16.Jordan Love GB vs. KC
17.*Kenny Pickett PIT vs. ARI
Note: Pickett is dealing with ankle soreness and might have his reps in practice capped this week. Pickett had a full practice on Wednesday.
18.*Derek Carr NO vs. DET
Note: Carr might be without his top three wide receivers this week.
19.Matthew Stafford LA vs. CLE
20.Desmond Ridder ATL at NYJ
21.*Jake Browning CIN at JAX
Note: Browning struggled to connect down-field, and his pocket awareness was a little lacking in the face of the Steelers' pass rush. It doesn't get much easier on Monday night in Jacksonville.
22.*Will Levis TEN vs. IND
Note: Levis has been under 200 yards in his last three games. Levis (ankle) was limited Wednesday but returned to a full practice Thursday.
23.*Taysom Hill NO vs. DET
Note: Hill had a combined 81 rushing and receiving yards last week and should be very busy this week against the Lions, given all the wide receiver injuries for the Saints. I would rank Hill sixth or seventh at TE this week, pending Dalton Schultz's status.
24.*Bryce Young CAR at TB
Note: Young struggled again, in a relatively decent matchup at Tennessee, and his lack of development likely cost Frank Reich his job.
25.*Tim Boyle NYJ vs. ATL
Note: Getting the start again this week.
26.*Bailey Zappe NE vs. LAC
Note: Zappe played the second half last week against the Giants and was slightly less bad than Mac Jones in the first half. The Pats also re-signed Will Grier to the practice squad. The Patriots are preparing Zappe to start. ***Most signs point towards Zappe starting, even though the Pats refuse to officially announce him as the starter. Malik Cunningham has been promoted to the active roster.***
27.*Joe Flacco CLE at LAR
Note: It is the Year 2023 and Joe Flacco might be starting a game this week against the Rams - he has surpassed PJ Walker on the depth chart, and DTR hasn't been able to practice yet. ***Flacco has officially been elevated from the practice squad and will start Sunday.***
28.*Mac Jones NE vs. LAC
Note: Jones played a mockery of a first half against the Giants, throwing two interceptions, before getting benched at halftime.
29.*Dorian Thompson-Robinson CLE at LAR
Note: Thompson-Robinson left Sunday's loss to the Broncos with a concussion. DTR did not practice Wednesday nor Thursday. Joe Flacco would start if he can't go. ***Officially ruled out this week.***
30.*PJ Walker CLE at LAR
Note: Walker really struggled against the Broncos after DTR left with a concussion. He fumbled twice, losing one, and was sacked four times, once for a safety. Walker is now behind Joe Flacco on the depth chart.
31.*Aaron Rodgers NYJ vs. ATL
Note: Rodgers (Achilles) has been designated to return from IR, and had a limited practice Wednesday. They are aiming for a Week 16 return.

Running Backs

1.Christian McCaffrey SF at PHI
2.Alvin Kamara NO vs. DET
3.*David Montgomery DET at NO
Note: Montgomery (foot) was limited Wednesday but returned to a full practice Thursday.
4.Kyren Williams LA vs. CLE
5.*Travis Etienne JAC vs. CIN
Note: Etienne briefly had to leave to be evaluated for a chest injury and then wasn't always on the field in the fourth quarter. Something to watch in practice this week. Etienne (ribs) was limited on Thursday, which was the Jags' first practice of the week. ***Etienne was limited in practice and is listed as questionable, but he's expected to play Monday night.***
6.*Bijan Robinson ATL at NYJ
Note: Robinson is still sharing snaps with both Allgeier and Patterson, but at least this week there was enough to go around and all three backs were effective.
7.*Austin Ekeler LAC at NE
Note: Ekeler coughed up a fumble for a second game in a row in the loss to the Ravens.
8.Tony Pollard DAL vs. SEA
9.*Zack Moss IND at TEN
Note: Moss will start against the Titans with Jonathan Taylor (thumb) out.
10.*De'Von Achane MIA at WAS
Note: Achane (knee) has been limited in practice this week and his status for Sunday's game against the Commanders is uncertain. ***Achane has been cleared to play and immediately steps into a great matchup against the Commanders.
11.Derrick Henry TEN vs. IND
12.Isiah Pacheco KC at GB
13.*D'Andre Swift PHI vs. SF
Note: Swift (ankle) was limited Wednesday, but had a full practice Thursday.
14.Jahmyr Gibbs DET at NO
15.Jaylen Warren PIT vs. ARI
16.Rhamondre Stevenson NE vs. LAC
17.Rachaad White TB vs. CAR
18.*Jerome Ford CLE at LAR
Note: I realize that game flow and a quarterback injury complicated matters, but the Browns need to get the ball in Ford's hands more.
19.Joe Mixon CIN at JAX
20.*Devin Singletary HOU vs. DEN
Note: While Singletary had just one more carry than Dameon Pierce, he out-snapped Pierce 47 to 11.
21.Brian Robinson WAS vs. MIA
22.*Raheem Mostert MIA at WAS
Note: Mostert (ankle/knee) sat out Wednesday and then was limited on Thursday. Meanwhile, teammate De'Von Achane (knee) followed a similar schedule and could return to action this week. ***Downgraded a little bit with Achane officially returning to action this week.***
23.*Najee Harris PIT vs. ARI
Note: Harris was the more effective of the two Pittsburgh backs in the win over the Bengals.
24.*Javonte Williams DEN at HOU
Note: Williams briefly left Sunday's win over the Broncos to get his neck checked out, which cost him a goal line opportunity that Samaje Perine cashed in.
25.James Conner ARZ at PIT
26.*Zach Charbonnet SEA at DAL
Note: It appears that Charbonnet is in line for another start, as Kenneth Walker (oblique) hasn't started practicing yet. ***Charbonnet injured his knee late in the loss on Thursday and had significant swelling afterward.***
27.*Breece Hall NYJ vs. ATL
Note: Hall (hamstring) has been limited in practice so far this week. ***Hall is listed as questionable but should play against the Falcons.***
28.Chuba Hubbard CAR at TB
29.*AJ Dillon GB vs. KC
Note: ***Dillon (groin) has been cleared from the injury list. Teammate Aaron Jones is out again.***
30.*Kareem Hunt CLE at LAR
Note: Hunt sat out Wednesday's practice with a groin injury. ***Hunt has been cleared from the injury list.***
31.*Ezekiel Elliott NE vs. LAC
Note: Elliott (thigh) was limited in practice both Wednesday and Thursday. ***Three limited practices this week and is listed as questionable, though he's expected to play.***
32.Royce Freeman LA vs. CLE
33.Tyler Allgeier ATL at NYJ
34.Elijah Mitchell SF at PHI
35.*Samaje Perine DEN at HOU
Note: Perine has reclaimed the backup role ahead of Jaleel McLaughlin.

Note: Dowdle (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice. He was also limited leading up to the Thanksgiving win over the Commanders and played great in the game. Cleared from the injury list on Wednesday.

Note: McKinnon (groin) sat out practice Wednesday, but returned to a limited practice Thursday. ***Ruled out for Sunday night.***
58.*Kenneth Walker SEA at DAL
Note: Walker (oblique) sat out practice Tuesday and coach Pete Carroll suggested that Walker hasn't really improved yet. Listed as doubtful.
59.*Aaron Jones GB vs. KC
Note: Jones (MCL) stretched with the team but otherwise hasn't practiced this week. ***Ruled out again this week.***
60.*Jonathan Taylor IND at TEN
Note: Taylor will undergo surgery for his injured thumb Wednesday and is out at least 2-3 weeks. ***Some debate on the timeline - Ian Rapoport suggested it's closer to a 3-to-5 week recovery time.***

The Bucs play in the afternoon window this week.***
34.Tyler Lockett SEA at DAL
