RYAN DUNGEY'S WEEK 13 FANTASY PICKS
QB: Tom Brady, Patriots
NFL.com QB scoring rank: No. 2. Matchup: Dolphins
He's pretty strong and consistent, and he's always in control of what he's doing. You can rely on him, and he works really well with his teammates.
WR: Brandon Marshall, Bears
NFL.com WR scoring rank: No. 2
Percy Harvin from my Vikings would be my first pick, but I'll take Brandon Marshall of the Bears. He's just a bad dude.
RB: Chris Johnson, Titans
NFL.com RB scoring rank: No. 12
I wish I could have my guy Adrian Peterson (picked last week) because of his effort. He always tries hard. But I'll take Johnson.
MICHAEL RAND'S WEEK 13 FANTASY PICKS
QB: Tony Romo, Cowboys
NFL.com QB scoring rank: No. 13. Matchup: Eagles
Dallas is desperate, which doesn't necessarily mean it will roll to a victory. But combined with the opponent -- Philadelphia is a sinking ship -- I'll take my chances with Romo this week. WR: Dez Bryant, Cowboys
NFL.com WR scoring rank: No. 11.
For the second consecutive week, I am doubling up on one team for a QB-WR combo. Bryant has been hot lately, and that continues this week.
RB: Mikel Leshoure, Lions
NFL.com RB scoring rank: No. 21.
The Lions are known more for their passing attack (and choking at the ends of games) than for their running game, but I am playing a hunch.
