Before setting your Week 13 Fantasy football lineups, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model advised owners to bench Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, saying he'd finish well outside the top 10 tight ends. The result? Olsen had just two receptions for 11 yards. Anyone who benched him dodged a major bullet.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 13 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model loves this week: Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate, who is still available in 25 percent of CBS Sports leagues. Brate is a full-time tight end after Tampa Bay sent OJ Howard to injured reserve and will be leaned on heavily this week with wide receiver DeSean Jackson sitting with a thumb injury.

And a massive shocker: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers stumbles big-time this week against the Steelers and finishes outside the top 15. He's a player to bench in Week 13.

The model is also calling for a surprising running back you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of the rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You absolutely need to see it before you lock in your lineups.

So who should you sit and start this week? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which shocking RB finishes in the top 10 this week, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
