Due to our spending choices, we have been in a position to usually get top-tier expertise at most positions. We did not goal the pricing ceiling at any place, save for TE, however we spent down simply sufficient and focused matchup-based sleepers to hold our match lineup. We now have two stacks, together with a conventional QB-WR stack with a pair of Seahawks and a contrarian RB-WR stack with a group that has an important matchup. We’re hoping these strikes acquire us sufficient differentiation to actually make some noise in GPP codecs and get within the cash.
Week 13 FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS match lineup
QB Russell Wilson, Seahawks vs. 49ers ($7,700). Final week, I took Lamar Jackson in a strong matchup as my QB, and that labored out. This week, I will be spending down into the same worth vary to focus on one other QB who can run in Wilson. Wilson is taking over a 49ers group that has allowed 19.9 FanDuel factors per sport to QBs. Wilson ought to have an opportunity to do harm towards them regardless of his restricted alternatives to move the ball (the Seahawks throw the second-fewest quantity of passes throughout the league). That latter stat is a part of why Wilson is so low-cost, and getting him because the 10th-highest priced QB on the slate looks as if a cut price.
RB Aaron Jones, Packers vs. Cardinals ($7,600). The Cardinals have allowed the fourth-most FanDuel factors to RBs this season at a clip of 29.1 per sport. Jones is beginning to get extra work within the Inexperienced Bay offense, and he has at the very least 93 scrimmage yards and a rating in every of the previous three weeks. The Packers will possible look to use the Cardinals weak point towards the run, in order that signifies that Jones might see carries early and sometimes. Because the seventh-highest priced RB on this slate, he is a worthwhile funding.
RB Phillip Lindsay, Broncos @ Bengals ($7,000). The Bengals protection has been dreadful in latest weeks, and so they have allowed the third-most FanDuel factors to RBs this season. Lindsay ought to have an opportunity to see plenty of touches, and he has at the very least 100 scrimmage yards and a rating in every of the previous two weeks. That, coupled with the truth that the Bengals have allowed 4 RB to attain 19.5-plus fantasy factors up to now three weeks makes Lindsay an excellent worth because the 10th-highest priced RB on the slate.
WR Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos @ Bengals ($7,000). I’m going with a contrarian stack by pairing Sanders along with his equally-priced teammate Lindsay. The explanation for that is easy: Cincinnati is just that unhealthy. Sanders ought to proceed to see a bulk of the group’s targets, as he is averaging 9.zero per sport up to now three outings, and he may have an opportunity to interrupt an enormous play. This leaves us closely uncovered to the Broncos taking part in an early sport, but it surely ought to in the end repay due to the porous Bengals protection.
WR D.J. Moore, Panthers @ Buccaneers ($6,400). Previously two video games, Moore has logged 15 catches for 248 yards and a TD. He is changing into the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers and may proceed to see a quantity of targets. The Buccaneers have allowed the fifth-most FanDuel factors to WRs this 12 months and this contest has the makings of an offensive showdown.
WR Tyler Lockett, Seahawks vs. 49ers ($6,700). I needed to stack Wilson with certainly one of his prime weapons, and the pricing on Lockett right here is strong. Lockett has been surprisingly constant this season, and he has scored a TD in eight of 11 video games. He ought to have an excellent likelihood to beat the 49ers’ protection group, and Wilson targets his nearly 5 occasions per sport. That is sufficient for us to take him on as a TD risk with respectable quantity.
TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs @ Raiders ($7,800). I needed publicity to the Raiders-Chiefs sport, so I made a decision to spend up at TE. Kelce is way and away the highest-priced tight finish, however spending up is feasible since we did not spend up massive at some other place. Kelce is averaging 15.17 FanDuel factors per sport, and he ought to persistently get near that quantity, particularly if he can rating. He has a ton of upside, taking over one of many worst defenses within the league, so he is nicely definitely worth the funding on an in any other case thin-looking slate for the place.
FLEX Jordan Howard, Bears @ Giants ($5,700). I am not an enormous fan of Howard as a participant, however this week appears to be an excellent one to focus on him, particularly given his sub-$6K pricing. Whereas Howard hasn’t performed nicely of late (112 complete yards, no scores in his final three video games) the Giants enable the fifth-most FanDuel factors to RBs. They’ve struggled with larger energy backs in latest weeks too, together with Peyton Barber and Adrian Peterson. Howard might be the subsequent in line to interrupt 100 yards and rating, so we’ll get him as an affordable FLEX which may be among the many lower-owned choices in our lineup.
DEF Buffalo Payments @ Dolphins ($4,000). In latest weeks, the Payments’ protection has performed nicely towards pedestrian quarterbacks, and so they’re averaging 9.zero FanDuel factors of their final two contests. They seem to be a lower-budget choice that ought to have an opportunity to generate some turnovers towards a nonetheless banged-up Ryan Tannehill, so we’ll take an opportunity on them as a low-budget choice.
