The biggest punch to the gut heading into Week 13 is the loss of tight end Rob Gronkowski. NBA Jerseys Shop Outlet . Not just for the Patriots, but for fantasy owners as well. If you dont have a TE2 stashed away to step up and take a starting role in your lineup, I recommend streaming tight ends through the remainder of the season.Tight end suggestions:Tampa Bays Cameron BrateHoustons C.J. FiedorowiczSan Franciscos?Vance McDonaldPittsburghs Ladarius GreenWashingtons Vernon DavisCincinnatis Jermaine GreshamInjuries to monitor in Week 13:RB Mark Ingram -- toe (questionable)RB Ryan Mathews -- knee (out)TE Jordan Reed -- shoulder (out)WR Tyrell Williams -- shoulder (questionable)WR Jeremy Maclin -- groin (questionable)WR Marvin Jones -- thigh (questionable)WR A.J. Green -- hamstring (out)LocksQB:?Colin Kaepernick @ ChicagoKaepernick is a legit top-12 starting fantasy QB each week after throwing three touchdowns with 296 passing yards and 113 rushing yards last week. This week he struts his stuff against a Bears defense that ranks 22nd in rushing yards allowed to quarterbacks. Get him in your lineup and grab your popcorn!(Others:?Matthew Stafford @ New Orleans, Russell Wilson vs. Carolina)WR: Larry Fitzgerald vs. WashingtonFitzgerald has not scored a touchdown in a hot second, but that stat is about to change on Sunday. Arizona faces Washington and Josh Norman, who rarely covers the slot, where Fitzgerald has lined up on 65 percent of his routes this season. Fitzgerald will have a much easier day then the rest of the Cardinals WR corps.(Others:?Doug Baldwin vs. Carolina, Golden Tate @ New Orleans, Brandin Cooks vs. Detroit)RB:?Jordan Howard vs. San FranciscoHoward has a juicy matchup against the 49ers, who have one of the worst defenses in the league. Howard is averaging almost 5 yards per carry in each of his past four games. San Francisco is allowing a little over 170 yards per game and has given up the most fantasy points to running backs this season.(Others:?Theo Riddick @ New Orleans, Spencer Ware @ Atlanta, Matt Forte vs. Indianapolis)TE:?Jimmy Graham vs. CarolinaGraham caught six passes for 67 yards last week against the Buccaneers to give him 264 yards and three touchdowns over his last four games. This week he takes on a Carolina defense that has struggled against opposing TEs and is ranked 31st against these oversized wide receivers.(Others:?Eric Ebron @ New Orleans, Tyler Eifert vs. Philadelphia)FlopsQB:?Eli Manning @ PittsburghManning is not in my top 12 this Sunday. Bad weather conditions and an improved Steelers defense has me concerned. Pittsburghs pass defense ranks seventh against opposing quarterbacks this season. Ouch.WR:?Kelvin Benjamin @ SeattleI see Cam & Co. having a long day in Seattle. Kelvin will be spending a lot of time with Richard Sherman on Sunday. Sherman doesnt show often, but he does when a team has legit No. 1 wideout.RB:?Rashad Jennings @ PittsburghJennings had a disappointing Week 12 by not delivering for fantasy owners against the Browns. Sunday he has a much more difficult matchup at Pittsburgh and should not be in your starting lineup.TE:?Coby Fleener vs. DetroitFleener has been a huge disappointment this fantasy season. Even though the Lions are a favorable matchup for opposing TEs, Josh Hill is the tight end of choice for the Saints this Sunday.SleepersQB:?Tyrod Taylor @ OaklandTaylor can do it for you in the air and on the ground, scoring his fourth rushing TD in the last 5 weeks this past Sunday. He now has Sammy Watkins back in the Bills lineup, which gives Taylor a great vertical threat. Oakland has given up the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.(Honorable mention:?Alex Smith @ Atlanta)WR:?Willie Snead vs. DetroitSnead is a sneaky good play this week in fantasy. The Saints are home against the Lions very vulnerable secondary. New Orleans should sport a pass-heavy attack against Detroit, which has allowed the 11th-most receiving yards to pass-catchers this season.(Honorable mention:?Michael Thomas vs. Detroit, Tyreek Hill @ Atlanta, Cameron Meredith vs. San Francisco)RB:?Jeremy Hill vs. PhiladelphiaHill is the featured back now that Gio Bernard is on IR and is finally being heavily utilized in the Bengals offense. Running backs have had success against the Eagles defense this season. Hill is an RB2 in Week 13.(Honorable mention:?Dion Lewis vs. Los Angeles, Kenneth Dixon vs. Miami, Tim Hightower vs. Detroit)TE:?Ladarius Green vs. New York GiantsGreen played on a season-high 14 snaps against the Colts on Thanksgiving. Word out of the Steel City is that Green will be more heavily involved in the offense this week. The Giants have allowed the seventh-most receiving yards per game to tight ends, and at least 55 yards to five different tight ends over their past five games.(Honorable mention:?Vernon Davis @ Arizona, Vance McDonald @ Chicago, Josh Hill vs. Detroit)Good luck in Week 13! Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Wholesale Basketball Jerseys Online .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. http://www.chinajerseysnba.com/ . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin understands the negativity associated with a four-game slide and stressed his underachieving team would do its best to absorb it and move forward.Its a path theyll have to travel without Cam Heyward. The defensive end and co-captain is out for the rest of the season with an upper-body injury suffered in Sundays loss to Dallas.Heyward posted a message on Instagram on Tuesday afternoon indicating his 2016 season is over.My role will change as I can not play but it will not change the goals the team has set out, Heyward wrote .Maybe, but the loss of their most consistent defensive player will make achieving those goals far tougher.While Heyward didnt specify the exact nature of the injury, Tomlin described it as a pectoral or chest problem. Heyward was examined on Monday and received a second opinion on Tuesday before making the announcement.My patience will be tested, but I look forward to 2017, Heyward wrote. My hand will remain in the pile no matter what!The loss of Heyward deals Pittsburghs already struggling defense with another significant blow. He missed the first two games of his six-year career in October when he tweaked his left hamstring in a win over the New York Jets on Oct. 9.The Steelers run defense collapsed without Heyward, giving up 204 yards to Miamis Jay Ajayi and 127 to New Englands LeGarrette Blount , games that started a midseason swoon.Heyward returned against Baltimore on Nov. 6 and the defense seemed to make significant strides against the Ravens and held Dallas rookie Ezekiel Elliott largely in check last Sunday before giving up a pair of touchdown runs in the final two minutes of a 35-30 setback that left Heyward fuming and led quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to call out some of his teammates for a lack of discipline.Not exactly the kind of chatter the Steelers expected to be generating in mid-November.Tomlin understands the frustration of his players. At the same time, he believes emotions are not as important as results.Were not doing enough of the good things well enough to win on a consistent basis, Tomlin said. Weve got to change that. We still feel very comfortable that were capable of being a good football team. But those (hurt) feelings are lesss important . Cheap Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys. .. than wins.A feeling the Steelers havent experienced in more than a month. While a potential reprieve awaits at winless Cleveland (0-10) on Sunday, the way Pittsburgh has played of late -- particularly on the road, where it is 1/3 -- doesnt exactly have Tomlin brimming with optimism.This is the third losing streak of at least four games during Tomlins tenure. The Steelers dropped five straight in 2009 and four straight in 2013. Both years Pittsburgh failed to make the playoffs.Missing out on the postseason seemed farfetched during a 4-1 start, but the Steelers have been so lifeless, careless or both recently that sitting at home in mid-January has become a very real possibility.The tape says there are not enough people doing the right things on a consistent basis, Tomlin said.A couple of his stars included. Though wide receiver Antonio Brown caught 14 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys, he also was meekly pushed out of bounds at the Dallas 20 on the games final play rather than flipping the ball back into the field hoping for an unlikely score.Tomlin understands the odds of the ball somehow winding up in the end zone following a series of laterals are slim. Slim, though, is better than none.At the end of the game Id like to see us stay inbounds and see us fight and claw and scratch, Tomlin said.Something Pittsburgh will try to do without Heyward, who has embraced the role as the vocal leader of a defense in transition. Its telling both of Heywards effort and Pittsburghs issues getting to the quarterback that his 3.0 sacks lead the team even though he missed two full games and the part of another.My support for this team will only grow, Heyward wrote, and I look forward in watching this team grow and fight on.Game notes LB Steve Johnson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve. Pittsburgh added linebacker L.J. Fort to the 53-man roster. ... WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) is out against the Browns. ...
