Home I Daily Fantasy Sports I DFS Bettings I Fantasy Football Week 13 Picks
We skipped last week to analyze the top 5 NFL leaders but here we go again, giving you our list with the best picks for NFL Week 13. Most of the Playoff participants are already clear but the battle has begun. Let’s dive in Week 13 and see which players are worth your trust, just three weeks prior the Playoff phase.
QB Case Keenum is one of the DFS pearls this season. Since the moment he stepped on the field as QB Sam Bradford’s reserve, he has not disappointed the fantasy players. Keenum is karma’s way of making it up to the quarterback fans for the loss of Aaron Rodgers. He can run as good as he can throw. In the Vikings last four games, Case Keenum has gained an average of at least 280 yards.
This Sunday the Vikings are going to Atlanta to face the Falcons – an overall good team, but just a mere reflection of what it was last season. Still, expect this game to be close. Such matchups are won by team leaders and QB Case Keenum is one.
Marshawn Lynch is probably one of the most gameplan dependent running backs in the league this season. During the first few games, Lynch seemed to be in his beast mode but later on, as the Raiders changed their offensive approach, he was simply not getting enough carries. Lynch was watching the game from the sideline, while fantasy owners suffered deficites on the running back position.
After the explosive start, Mr. Beast Mode calmed down, and even if he got some snaps, couldn’t transform them into something impressive. Given that he is 30 years old and is coming off an 18-month layoff, half a season seems like a reasonable time for Marshawn to find his best shape again. Last week against the Broncos the coaches claimed they wanted to present more opportunities to Lynch and in fact they didn’t lie. He recorded 29 touches and 68% snap percentage – both the highest for this season.
Everythings points towards the awakening of the Beast Mode and what is more – the Raiders are playing one of this year’s biggest NFL disappointments. The New York Giants have allowed an average of 153.3 yards per game to running backs. Also, there is one more ankle injury in New York, seventh for this season, as far as we can remember.
This time it is one of the defensive leaders – CB Janoris Jenkins. It is not a question of who wins this game, but which player scores the most points for Oakland. And since WR Michael Crabtree (suspended) and WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) are absent, all eyes are on RB Marshawn Lynch as the most reliable scoring option.
Of course you can stick to the mainstream NFL heroes on the wide receiver position and opt for WR Antonio Brown, WR Julio Jones, or WR DeAndre Hopkins. This is fine but this week we offer you a different approach. WR Keenan Allen of the Chargers is blooming and also has an easy matchup ahead against the weakest team of the recent NFL history – the Cleveland Browns (0-11).
Last week against the Cowboys (5-6) Allen recorded a career-high 172 receiving yards and scored a touchdown. The 25-year-old from South Carolina is on the rise with 331 yards and 3 touchdowns over the last two weeks.
This guy knows how to work his way through the enemy lines. In fact, Keenan Allen gains the most yards after he catches the ball with multiple rapid cuts, as if he is dancing around the defenders. Joyful to watch for the audience and painful for the opposing coaches.
Here is another pick from the Minnesota Vikings. And we didn’t pick TE Kyle Rudolph just because Christmas is coming. He is an outstanding tight end and it is not the first time he has found a place on our list. In Week 12 Rudolph caught all 4 of his targets and scored 2 touchdowns. Rudolph is a veteran for the Vikes, with 7 years of NFL experience, and you can tell this by his positioning and toughness.
The Atlanta Falcons (7-4) on the other hand, posses a pressuring defense that is vulnerable to short passes. Combine that with the surprising consistency of Rudolph, something very unusual for the position, and you get a desired DFS pick.
During the past two weeks the Jaguars Defense has been the most started defensive unit in all the fantasy leagues of NFL.com. They enter Week 13 as the league’s top scoring defense with 15.3 yards per game and are also the NFL’s best team in terms of total defense with just 288.1 yards allowed per game. Their amazing performance so far has earned them the name “Sacksonville”.
The Jaguars have completed 41 sacks so far. DE Calais Campbell is leading the pack with 11.5 sacks, followed by DE Yannick Ngakoue with 10. The Indianapolis Colts (3-8) offense simply doesn’t seem capable of stopping such beasts.
