Fantasy football sizzlers, fizzlers: Tennessee Titans’ Corey Davis rises to the occasion

These players saw their fantasy values increase or decrease most based on their performances in Week 13:

SIZZLERS

QB Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns: Much of the 9-3 Browns' success can be attributed to Mayfield's recent hot play. Against a solid Titans defense, he was near perfect — tossing four TD passes in the first half and finishing with 334 yards. He also hasn't thrown an interception since Week 7.

WR Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans: Facing a huge first-half deficit, game flow definitely played a role in Davis erupting for 182 receiving yards and a touchdown. But perhaps even more impressive, he caught 11 of his 12 targets in an effort that highlighted his immense raw talent.

TE Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders: Waller likely tipped the outcome of many fantasy matchups with his absolutely dominant performance: 13 receptions, 200 yards and two scores. In a season largely devoid of star tight ends, Waller has been one.

QB Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions: Even without Kenny Golladay, Stafford had his best game of the season, throwing for 402 yards and three touchdowns. The offensive changes since coach Matt Patricia's departure seem to suit Stafford better as he appears to be thriving in a new spread offense.

RB Ty Johnson, N.Y. Jets: Once Frank Gore left in the first quarter due to a concussion, the little-known Johnson took over. All the 2019 sixth-rounder out of Maryland did was rush for 104 yards and a touchdown on 22 attempts — and tack on another 13 yards receiving.

FIZZLERS

QB Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles:Replaced by Jalen Hurts in the third quarter after completing just six passes in 15 attempts for 79 yards, Wentz may not retain his starting job. Even if he does, he'll face a tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

RB Todd Gurley, Atlanta Falcons: After sitting out Week 12 with a knee injury, Gurley did not reclaim his role as the lead back against the Saints. He had eight carries for 16 yards and was targeted just once in the passing game.

WR DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins: The switch to Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback hasn't been beneficial for Parker's fantasy stats. Getting ejected in a chippy game against Cincinnati hurt his value even more. 

WR Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos: Jeudy has started to fade down the stretch. He has been targeted a healthy 82 times in his rookie season but has 38 receptions for a dismal 46% catch rate. He had only one target on Sunday until the final minute of the game.

TE Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers: Coming off a season-best performance a week ago, Henry did little as the Chargers were shut out by New England. He totaled one reception for 5 yards.
