NFL Early Week 13 Sneak Peek for DraftKings and FanDuel
Welcome to the Team Rise or Fall DraftKings and FanDuel week 13 sneak peek article. This early outlook is going to give you a preview of the upcoming week’s games and some spots that show promise for our DFS lineups. We have some high game totals, value-priced plays, and overall DFS goodness. If you haven’t joined us at Team Rise or Fall, what are you waiting for?
NBA season is less than a month away! Check out the NBA Study Hub Sample to get a sneak peek of what is to come!
We’re back after a week hiatus due to Thanksgiving so we will not have a review of the previous week, rather we’re going to jump right into the week 13 main slate.
Watson continues to find his way into the sneak peek article. He’s been playing like a man possessed lately. The Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub projects him as the highest scoring quarterback on the slate. The Texans don’t have the highest implied team total, but we know touchdowns will come through Watson whether through the air or on the ground.
It’s tough writing up a guy that threw for a season-low 84 yards and two touchdowns this past Sunday against the Cardinals, but in the Study Hub, I trust. Newton projects as the best value per dollar in our NFL Study Hub. He’ll benefit from facing a Chargers defense that allows the 8th most fantasy points to the quarterback position.
I’m going back to the well here with Dalvin Cook. He disappointed on Sunday and exited the game with an injury but, if he’s healthy, it isn’t a bad idea to lock him in. As of today, our NFL Study Hub projects Cook to be the highest-scoring back on the slate, as well as the second-best value per dollar. He faces a Jacksonville defense that allows the 8th most fantasy points to the position, and recency bias will remind us how Cleveland ran all over them.
Speaking of value per dollar, only Hines ranks higher in the NFL Study Hub than Dalvin Cook. If Jonathan Taylor is to miss this week’s clash against the Texans, Hines will be popular like he was this past Sunday. He is the ideal DraftKings back that is more than capable of catching passes out of the backfield. Whether Hines or Taylor, the Colts backs will benefit from facing a run defense that allows the second-most fantasy points to running backs.
There is nothing bad you can say about Davante Adams. He has one of the few elite quarterbacks in the league. He consistently receives double-digit targets. He’s nearly matchup proof. The NFL Study Hub projects him as the highest scoring wideout. You can’t go wrong here.
When the news broke that Will Fuller was going to miss the remainder of the season because of a PED suspension, I immediately thought of the impact it will have on Cooks. Fuller’s 22.11% target share has to be absorbed by the other wideouts and I believe that Cooks will be the primary beneficiary of Fuller’s absence. He’ll face a tough Colt’s pass defense but, I like the opportunity.
Last week Jacksonville turned to journeyman Mike Glennon to lead the offense and it appeared he had a good rapport with tight end Tyler Eifert. Eifert brought in 3 of 4 targets one of them being a touchdown. For his $3k price tag, I don’t mind paying down for Eifert in what will most likely be a positive game script for the Jaguars offense.
Akins projects as the second-best value at the tight end position this week. I’m not paying up for an up and down Waller this week so I’m going to pay down and hope for the best. Akins is in a similar situation to that of Brandin Cooks in that Fuller’s targets are going to go somewhere, it’ll just be tough to see where they land.
