Week 13 Fantasy Football Practice News & Notes for Thursday
Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) took full practice reps again Thursday. Bortles is never a confident start, but given the matchup, he’s certainly playable in Week 13. The Colts are No. 17 in QB aFPA, and have yielded the highest yards per attempt (8.2) and the third-most passing yards (266 per game) on the year. In 2017, Bortles has averaged 248 yards and 1.6 touchdowns in five home games versus just 167/0.67 on the road.
Jets QB Josh McCown (left wrist) took full practice reps again Thursday. In six 2017 home games, McCown has averaged 255 yards and 1.5 touchdowns while only throwing 0.5 interceptions. The Chiefs are No. 23 in QB aFPA and have been pretty mediocre against the pass all year. McCown is coming off a 307-yard, 3-touchdown effort against the Panthers, and he’s accounted for 16 total touchdowns in his last seven games.
Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (right shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Winston is back and he has a great matchup against the Packers, who are No. 30 in QB aFPA. In their last two meetings with competent quarterbacks, the Packers gave up 351 yards and 4 touchdowns to Ben Roethlisberger three weeks after yielding 361 yards and 3 touchdowns to Matthew Stafford. Even Mitchell Trubisky (297 yards and a touchdown) got into the act against Green Bay. His return is good news for Cameron Brate.
