Week 13 brings us an unusual week for fantasy football, as Thanksgiving Day leaves us with three games on Thursday instead of the typical one.

With a short week to track injury news and think about start 'em, sit 'em options, Thursday games can be tougher to handle than Sunday contests are.

With that in mind, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for Thursday's Week 13 Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys.

Who to Start in Fantasy Football

Start Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys: A matchup with the Bills is a downgrade for any QB, as they're holding opponents to the third-fewest fantasy points per game at the position. That doesn't take Prescott out of play though, as he checks in at QB3 on the year and has fallen below 18 fantasy points only twice in 11 games. This matchup does downgrade his outlook, but Dak still checks in at QB7 in our Week 13 fantasy football rankings.

Start Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills: Devin Singletary's production wasn't lining up with his impressive volume for the first few weeks after his return from injury, but the rookie finally broke out in Week 12, rushing for 106 yards on 21 attempts. He's now run the ball at least 15 times in three of the last four games, making up for it with six targets in the game that he missed the mark. His snap share has also eclipsed 71 percent in each of the last two weeks, keeping him in play as an every-week starter.

Sit Randall Cobb, WR, Dallas Cowboys: Randall Cobb is up to four consecutive games with at least seven targets, averaging 5.0 receptions on 7.5 targets per game in that stretch. It's still tough to rely on any team's No. 3 WR for fantasy production though, and that's especially true here as Cobb finds himself up against a Bills D that ranks top-five against the pass in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric.

Sit Frank Gore, RB, Buffalo Bills: The other side of that Singletary coin is that Frank Gore is no longer a viable fantasy play. He has managed double-digit carries in three of the last four games, but he hasn't posted double-digit fantasy points since Week 4. His snap share is down, with his 27 percent and 29 percent in the last two games representing his two lowest shares since Week 1, and that leaves little room for hope of a bounce-back game.
