The Miami Dolphins look to continue their four-game winning streak when they host the New York Giants in Week 13. Currently, the Dolphins are slated as 4.5-point home favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.

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

Kenny Golladay Fantasy

Start Kenny Golladay, WR, New York Giants: Heading into Week 13, Kenny Golladay is the only Giants wide receiver not on the injury report. It's not looking like Kadarius Toney or Sterling Shepard will play. That leaves a big opportunity for Golladay against the Dolphins defense that allows the third-most PPR points to opposing wideouts. Golladay hasn't been reliable this season, but he is fresh off an outing in which he saw 7 targets. It's hard to trust any of the Giants playmakers in fantasy, but Golladay may be worth a FLEX start considering his potential to lead the injury-riddled Giants in targets.

Myles Gaskin Fantasy

Start Myles Gaskin, RB, Miami Dolphins: Myles Gaskin is the only surefire fantasy starter for both teams in this matchup. He ranks as RB14 in PPR leagues and faces one of his easiest tasks of the year: the Giants defense which ranks 31st in Football Outsiders' rush-defense DVOA metric. Gaskin averages 16.1 opportunities per game (11.5 rush attempts, 4.5 targets) and could feast against a front seven that allows 127.7 rushing yards per game.

Saquon Barkley Fantasy

Sit Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants: Saquon Barkley has been disappointing since his return from injury in Week 11. He's averaging just 32.5 rushing yards, 22 receiving yards and 0 TDs in that span. His 5 receptions per game is the only reason he's the RB23 during that stretch, but he's about to face a Dolphins' front seven that ranks 12th in Football Outsiders' rush-defense DVOA metric. Consider Barkley a very low-end RB2 or FLEX option this week, which is a very far cry from his preseason RB8 average draft position (ADP).

Tua Tagovailoa Fantasy

Sit Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins: While the Giants struggle mightily against the run, they have been one of the best units against the pass. New York ranks seventh in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric and has forced the fifth-most interceptions in the NFL (13). Tua has only eclipsed 300 passing yards once in his eight starts this season and could be in for a long day against the Giants.
