Breaking News: Michael John McCarthy have resigned…….

There were some major surprises in week 13 of the 2023 fantasy football season. Who were the major victors and defeaters? Which athletes scored “A” and “F”?

Seth Walder gives his grades; Matt Bowen and Tristan H. Cockcroft offer their analyses. In addition, we posed questions to NFL Nation reporters concerning the events of the Thursday and Sunday games.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill

In Miami’s Week 13 rout of Washington, Hill scored over 30 fantasy points for the second time in his last three games, dropping 32.3 on the defense. Here, Hill caught touchdowns of 78 and 60 yards on the long ball. Electric speed, with the capacity to separate through abrupt, rapid movement. In addition, we witnessed Hill’s third-level ball-tracking abilities.

With ten touchdown receptions in as many games this season, Hill continues to be the most potent threat in the league at the third level of the field. For his Week 14 matchup with the Titans, you can lock in Hill (again) as the overall wide receiver. — Bowen

Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins

Although a bump in targets due to Tank Dell’s (fractured fibula) absence may have contributed to his career-best 34.1 PPR fantasy points total, it was noteworthy that this came in a difficult matchup. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Collins was matched up against Pat Surtain II, the top cover corner for the Denver Broncos, on half of his 28 routes. Collins even made three catches on 81 yards with Surtain as the closest defender. Collins may once more be C.J. Stroud’s favorite target in the fantasy playoffs now that Dell is gone, which could propel him into the weekly top 15 at his position. — Cockcroft

Miami Dolphins running back De’Von Achane

Before you jump to the demeaning “but most of it came in garbage time” argument, keep in mind that the rookie did accrue 22.3 of his 25.3 PPR fantasy points in the second half of the game, with his team leading by more than 24 points on the scoreboard. This kind of usage is encouraging for a player who has been sidelined for nearly the entire previous seven weeks due to injury. Achane completed with 20 touches and 59% of the offensive snaps; eight of his carries resulted in at least five yards. He appears to be in good health and poised to contribute significantly to the fantasy postseason. — Cockcroft

Sam LaPorta, TE, Lions of Detroit

LaPorta, who was part of the Lions’ strategy in their Week 13 victory over the Saints, set new season highs for receiving yards (140), fantasy points (29), and receptions (nine). In addition, LaPorta scored on a prearranged red zone target to score his second touchdown of the game. In the red zone, make room for the tight end to allow quarterback Jared Goff to read a clean Hi-Lo pass. LaPorta will continue to be a top-5 option at the position because of his route-running skills and the Detroit passing offense, which generates schemed opportunities. He has scored 17 or more points in three of his last five games, and he will face the Bears defense in Week 14. — Bowen
