Home I Latest News I Fantasy Football DFS Week 13 Preview
Lucky number 13 is upon on us and DFS week 13 promises to be a good one for Daily Fantasy Football players all around the globe. This season has been full of surprises, none bigger than the Dallas Cowboys being the best team in football. The Cowboys play tonight against the Minnesota Vikings and are looking for their 11th straight win, led by Daily Fantasy Football stud Ezekiel Elliott. Week 13 also brings us an almost guaranteed shootout when the Detroit Lions visit the New Orleans Saints. Although it isn’t the highest over/under of the week, the game I am most excited about is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ San Diego Chargers. I will break down these games and help you guys get ready for Sunday. Daily Fantasy Football players are in for a treat this weekend!
Drew Brees QB ($7,600)
I don’t need to say much about Drew Brees, because well, he’s Drew Brees. Coming off a Week 12 blow out where he put up 35.6 fantasy points, I expect much of the same in Week 13. The Lions rank 28/32 against opposing QBs. I will be playing plenty of Drew Brees on Sunday.
Brandin Cooks WR ($6,400)
Brandin Cooks is coming off a game where he put up 0 fantasy points for the first time in his career. I am looking for Cooks to be more involved this week, and put up a big week. I will be playing the Brees/Cooks combo and I will be expecting big returns.
Michael Thomas WR ($6,900)
One of the biggest surprises in the 2016 season has been rookie Wide Receiver Michael Thomas. The second round draft pick has been a blessing for Daily Fantasy Football players and the Saints’ most consistent weapon. He is heavily involved in the red zone and always seems to find the end zone with 7 touchdowns on the season. I will also be playing a Brees/Thomas combo as well in Week 13.
Matthew Stafford QB ($7,000)
Stafford has been having a great season, but it hasn’t translated to fantasy points. Failing to top 20 fantasy points since week 7, I expect Stafford to break out this week when he faces the Saints defense. If he can’t pick apart this defense he can’t pick apart any defense.
Golden Tate WR ($6,200)
After a slow start, Tate has been getting back on track in 2016 and Daily Fantasy Football players have started to notice. His price is up over $1,000 since week 8 but at only $6,200, I think Tate is a good play this week. I expect him to get his fair share of targets against the Saints’ 30th ranked secondary.
This matchup really caught my eye in Week 13. At first look you might think to stay away after a dominate performance from Tampa’s defense last week vs the Seahawks. What I see is an old fashioned shootout. Both teams like to throw the ball and both teams tend to turn the ball over. This should lead to plenty of points for both teams. I love the over in this game.
Jameis Winston QB ($6,200)
The Buccaneers are on a three game winning streak and some of that is due to an improving Winston. I am excited to see if Jameis can bring his good play on the road when he visits the Chargers on Sunday. I am expecting a top 5 fantasy day from Winston.
Mike Evans WR ($8,600)
It’s only been 2 years but when you think of Winston, you automatically think of Evans. Evans is a target monster with double digit targets in every game but 2 this season. I am loving this combo in week 13. Look for Evans to be a top WR this week.
Philip Rivers QB ($6,500)
Rivers has thrown for at least 2 touchdowns in every week since week 8. Rivers has been playing well despite his team letting him down. Rivers tends to play well at home so for that reason I will be rolling with Rivers in week 13.
Matt Ryan ($6,800) vs Chiefs
Andrew Luck ($7,300) @ Jets
David Johnson ($9,500) vs Redskins
Spencer Ware ($6,400) @ Falcons
Doug Baldwin ($6,700) vs Panthers
Brandon Marshall ($6,900) vs Colts
Travis Kelce ($4,700) @ Falcons
Zach Ertz ($4,300) @ Bengals
Broncos ($3,900) @ Jaguars
Packers ($2,900) vs Texans
