Week 13 picks to click

LeGarrette Blount has been a source of frustration for fantasy owners this season. The Buccaneers' running back has not played as many snaps as most top running backs since he hasn't played on many passing downs.

Blount has received 13 carries or fewer in five games this season and missed two games with injuries. If you stuck by him this long, you are about to cash in. Blount has 38 carries for 210 yards with a touchdown the last two games. He even had three receptions for 56 yards last week and was carving up the Titans.

The Panthers have been destroyed by running backs, allowing 15 rushing TDs. Blount is a must-start and he faces the Panthers again in Week 16.

Good starts in Week 13.

Tim Tebow (Broncos, QB): Even though he has 21 pass attempts or fewer in four straight games, Tebow still produces points because of his yards on the ground. The Vikings defend the run well, so Tebow might get more points via the pass. He's a top 10 play.

Chris Johnson (Titans, RB): He has become a matchup play and the Bills are a good one. They rank 22nd against the run and have allowed 12 rushing TDs. Johnson looked the best he has all season last week and is averaging 4.68 yards per carry the last four games.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Patriots, RB): He scares people every week because of his inconsistent touches. In games the Patriots hold big leads, he produces and that will be the case against the Colts. In blowouts the last two weeks, Green-Ellis has 34 carries. The Colts rank 31st against the run.

Ryan Mathews (Chargers, RB): When he is healthy, he gets most of the touches. He had 22 carries for 137 yards last week.

DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart (Panthers, RBs): The Buccaneers have been getting destroyed by the run the last few games and have allowed 13 rushing TDs. Both are getting double-digit touches.

A.J. Green (Bengals, WR): He had a tough matchup against the Browns' Joe Haden and had three catches for 110 yards. Even against the Steelers, he's a start.

Laurent Robinson (Cowboys, WR): Miles Austin will miss another game and Robinson is rolling with seven TDs in the last five games.

Eric Decker (Broncos, WR): He is a risk since Tebow doesn't attempt many passes, but he gets most of the targets. Decker is from Minnesota and played his college ball there. He has four TDs in the last five games and faces a Vikings secondary that has allowed 22 passing TDs and is riddled with injuries.

Jermichael Finley (Packers, TE): He's been a disappointment with just 46.6 yards per game. Still, very few tight ends produce every week. The Giants have allowed five TDs to tight ends the last four games.

Fred Davis (Redskins, TE): Darrelle Revis will likely cover WR Santana Moss and that should allow Davis to get open. The Jets have allowed three TDs to tight ends the last five games.
