NFL Week 13: DraftKings NFL Picks and Fanduel NFL Picks

NFL Week 13: DraftKings NFL Picks and Fanduel NFL Picks

This week features only one game with a projected total over 50 points: Chiefs vs Raiders (50.5 Total) so we might have our work cut out for us this week especially because there are four games with a projected total under 41 points: Redskins at Panthers, Jets at Bengals, Browns at Steelers and Chargers at Broncos.  

As always, check back on Sunday and follow us on twitter @theDFSpost for updates closer to kickoff. With all that being said, here are our NFL Week 13 picks for the 11 game main slate as it stands right now:


 

QUARTERBACKS
There is a lot of good pay up options today – Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Kyler Murray, Jameis Winston, and Sam Darnold but if you’re chasing 4x plays then you might want to look at:
NICK FOLES – JAX v tb
In the two games he’s been back from injury Foles as throw 47 and 48 passes. His yardage hasn’t quite been where you would expect with those pass attempts but he was also playing against decent defences while on the road. Now he gets a juicy matchup against the terrible pass defence of the Buccaneers. Not only are they 31st against the pass but also 2nd against the rush so it should be a good passing day.
ANDY DALTON – CIN v nyj
The Ryan Finley experiment is over and the reins are back in Dalton’s hands. He’s the lowest priced starting QB on the slate today and before his benching he put up 21.2 and 21.3 DKFPts. The Jets are average against the pass but what I like is the Bengals are 3-point home underdogs so they should be throwing the ball.

RUNNING BACKS
This is a weaker week for RB’s with Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry, and Leonard Fournette all in tough matchups. But, because we’re paying down at QB we can afford the top play RB of the week:
CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY – CAR v was
We all know he produces a huge volume of touches and points each week and we know he’s going to destroy the Redskins. He’s easily a core play for me this week and I’m hoping his price will keep ownership somewhat depressed on his way to a 30+DKFPts day.
JONATHAN WILLIAMS – IND v ten
The Titans rush defence has settled into the middle of the pack after starting out the season being quite stout. That bodes well for Williams in his second start behind arguably one of the best rushing offensive lines in football right now. Williams racked up 29 touches in his first replacing Mack and seeing 25+ touches against this week is in the cards. I dig it.
MILES SANDERS – PHI v mia
It’s always easy to pick on the Dolphins and I’ll do it again this week. Sanders will see the majority of the backfield touches this week with Jordan Howard set to miss which is really great news considering the Dolphins have allowed at least 100 rushing yards in all but two games this season.
ALSO CONSIDERRONALD JONES II in a great matchup against the Jaguars who are giving up forth most points to RB’s this season.

WIDE RECEIVERS
As always I like to stack my WR’s with my QB’s so I am looking at DJ CHARK this week to have another 10+ target week against the worst pass defence in the league as well as TYLER BOYD who should benefit with Dalton under center. I’m also looking at DAVANTE ADAMS, DEVANTE PARKER, CHRISTIAN KIRK, AJ BROWN, ALSHON JEFFERY and STERLING SHEPARD to round out my player pool.

TIGHT ENDS
Based on my lineup construction I am focusing on only two TE’s this week:
JACK DOYLE – IND v ten
He’s going to be chalky but you can’t argue with his price and his opportunity with Ebron being placed in IR. If you combine Ebron’s and Doyle’s production this year the Colts ranks sixth in fantasy points scored by TE and with Hilton being hobbled it’s not out of the question to see 10 targets to Doyle this week. I’m game.
TYLER HIGBEE – LAR @ ari
If you’re looking to pivot off the chalk you can look at Higbee who is the clear TE for the Rams with Everett out this week. Higbee was already seeing 70% of the offensive snaps before the injury and now will see even more looks his way. Don’t sleep on the Rams after last week’s snoozer – they will be better against the Cardinals.
