Week 13 Offensive Sleepers

A look at the best under the radar plays for Week 13

Quarterback

Jared Goff, LAR (at Arizona)

Goff has been tough to predict week-to-week, but we do have data points from last year when the Rams faced Vance Joseph’s Cardinals defense. He went for 319 yards and three scores and 424 and two scores in those two games and this Arizona defense doesn’t have Chandler Jones. Only Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Dwayne Haskins, and Joe Flacco have failed to throw multiple touchdowns against the Cardinals this year.

Mitchell Trubisky, CHI (vs Detroit)

Trubisky is an all pro when he faces the Lions. He had 242 and three scores in the season opener this year, threw for three scores in both matchups last year, and in the one 2018 matchup with Detroit, Trubisky threw for three scores and ran for one. The Lions defense was turning to dust in recent games, but they could get a ding dong the witch is dead bounce with the firing of Matt Patricia. That’s still not enough to lower interest in Trubisky as a QB2/Superflex/Streamer or DFS quarterback.

Baker Mayfield, CLE (at Tennessee)

Mayfield has been efficient without Odell Beckham Jr even if he has remained a low volume quarterback. Last week against Jacksonville he peaked with 258 and two scores, and he could reproduce that and more against the Titans, especially if the Browns defense can’t slow down the Titans offense, which scored five times in the first half last week against the Colts. There is a decent chance that the Browns are playing from behind in the second half, forcing Mayfield to eclipse 30 passing attempts for the first time since Week 5.

Kirk Cousins, MIN (vs Jacksonville)

Cousins has thrown for multiple scores in each of the last four games and six out of the last seven. He did last week without the benefit of Adam Thielen, but Thielen will return for the matchup against the Jaguars, who just gave up that 258-2 game to Baker Mayfield on only 29 attempts. The Jaguars have given up multiple passing scores in each of the last five games and they don’t have anyone who can cover Thielen or Justin Jefferson.
