Week 13 Booms and Busts by Logan Lepiscopo

Week 13 Booms and Busts

By: Logan Lepiscopo

Fantasy football playoffs are just a couple weeks away now which makes it very important that you pay attention to your players with favorable matchups. Week in and week out you are going to start your obvious studs that perform week in and week out. But if you are ever in a dilemma with picking between two players, this is what this article is for. Players picked as “Boom Candidates” are those that I expect will hit and even potentially exceed their point projection. Players under the “Bust Candidates” are players that I believe will fail to meet their projection. Now this does not mean to go ahead and bench a guy that has been a star all year because he is under the bust category. It simply means if your quarterback is projected 25 points and has a not so favorable matchup, do not be surprised if he does not meet that 25 point projection.
