NFL Week 13 DFS Plays for DraftKings

fantasy football rankings, drew brees

Cash Game Plays
($6300)Russell Wilson vs CAR
I understand it may be hard to go back to the well after Wilson sunk your GPP teams last week, especially having the confidence to play him in cash, but this spot is too good and he is far too cheap. If he was in a good spot last week, we have to trust the process in an equal or better spot. Russ is home with a team total of 25.75 with the Panthers missing Luke Kuechly and Mario Addison. I don’t expect Carolina to get a ton of pressure on the QB due to those guys missing, leading to Russ having all day to dissect the weak young secondary.

($9200)Le’Veon Bell vs NYG
This is not the best spot for a running back, but there is not player in the game with a higher floor and ceiling as far as touches and total fantasy points. He is also $300 cheaper than David Johnson. Ben’s home successes should also help translate into a huge day for Bell.

($9100)Antonio Brown vs NYG
I feel like I have put Bell and Brown in my cash game plays at least 4 times this year, but I just want you to make the best plays. I am not writing cash game picks for hot takes. Brown is the best cash game wide receiver option every week, especially when at home.

($2900)Vance McDonald
I have taken a while to get on the Vance train, but he is too cheap for his targets comparable to those around him. He hasn’t seen less than 6 targets in his last 5 games and faces the Bear’s weak secondary. He does not make a good GPP play, however, because his ceiling is about 20 DK points.

GPP Plays

($7600)Drew Brees vs DET
Will he be popular? Yes. Will he score the most fantasy points? Likely. He is a near lock for the 300 yard bonus on DraftKings and has about a 80% chance of throwing 3 touchdowns. The Coors field of NFL will be in full effect this week. I like stacking Brees with Cooks, Michael Thomas, or both. I would also run it back with a DET pass catcher like Eric Ebron, Golden Tate, or Theo Riddick.

($5300)Carlos Hyde @ CHI
Hyde remains severely under priced for the upside he provides. He is a near lock for 18 touches, including all goal line and red zone work, and may actually have a positive game script this week.

($6400)Brandin Cooks
After suffering the terrifying bagel last week, this is the perfect spot to go back to the well. Cooks is at home vs an extremely suspect secondary. Cooks has been complaining to the media about his role and the squeaky wheel narrative is in full effect. Hopefully last weeks disappointment keeps his ownership down.

($5300)Tyler Eifert
The Eifert tower is under priced for his role in the Bengals offense. Sans A.J. Green, he is the number one passing option for Andy Dalton. This was evidenced with his team leading 11 targets in week 12. He does not have the best match up, but the upside he provides is far surpasses other TEs in the $5K range.
