The Kansas City Chiefs look to extend their win streak to five games when they take on the Denver Broncos in Week 13's Sunday Night Football matchup. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Chiefs as 9.5-point favorites in the AFC West clash.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 13 showdown.

Javonte Williams Fantasy

Start Javonte Williams, RB, Denver Broncos: Melvin Gordon has been officially ruled out of this one. That leaves Javonte Williams with a lion's share of backfield opportunities against the Chiefs. He's been RB28 in PRR formats and that's with him playing only 47% of offensive snaps. Williams enters the week after finishing Week 12 as RB8, scoring 20.1 fantasy points. He has a chance to continue that momentum against a Kansas City squad giving up 20.1 fantasy PPG to running backs.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Fantasy

Start Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: After missing five games due to injury, Clyde Edwards-Helaire returned in Week 11 with an RB14 finish in PPR. He looked great, averaging 5.25 rushing yards on 12 carries for a touchdown. While the Broncos have allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to rushers, they've also surrendered 216 rushing yards to the Philadelphia Eagles two games ago. The Chiefs are a much better team than that and a positive game script could see Edwards-Helaire finish as an RB2 or better.

Courtland Sutton Fantasy

Sit Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos: Courtland Sutton has been one of the bigger fantasy disappointments of late. Since Week 8, the fourth-year pro has been WR92 in PPR formats. No, that isn't a typo. He's averaged just 1.75 receptions on 3.0 targets for 95 yards over his last four games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 6. With the Chiefs improved defense and Sutton's declining play, fantasy managers likely have better options out there.

Mecole Hardman Fantasy

Sit Mecole Hardman, WR, Kansas City Chiefs: Mecole Hardman is another wideout who hasn't lived up to expectations this season. He was supposed to be Kansas City's No. 2 wide receiver this year, however, he's WR53 leaguewide. Denver gives up the 14th-fewest fantasy points to wideouts, which doesn't bode well for a player who has four outings of fewer than 30 receiving yards in his last five games. Besides, he only played 18% of offensive snaps in Week 11, which makes him difficult to plug into any fantasy lineup.
