Trey Burton was a hit at a tough tight end spot, but the Tampa Bay passing attack didn’t come through in last week’s lineup. Which matchups should you target for your Week 13 daily fantasy lineups in DraftKings and FanDuel?
QB: Jared Goff @ ARI
DraftKings: $5,800 | FanDuel: $7,200
Jared Goff averaged over 370 yards per game against the Cardinals last season; while it’s a better Arizona defense and an improved team overall the Rams will be facing, Goff should bounce back after getting called out by Sean McVay. The accurate quarterback could have one of his best games of 2020 at a considerable value.
RB: Derrick Henry vs. CLE
DraftKings: $9,200 | FanDuel: $10,000
This time of year is not only the holiday season, it’s also Derrick Henry season. Over his past 16 games (including playoffs), Henry has rushed for 2,000 yards—and the numbers only go up in December. The Browns might have trouble stopping the monstrous back.
RB: Miles Sanders @ GB
DraftKings: $6,700 | FanDuel: $7,200
The Eagles have to do something to get this thing back on the rails, and the obvious answer seems to be that they should run the ball more with Miles Sanders and company. Philadelphia killed Green Bay on the ground last season, and Sanders has overall RB1 upside for Week 13.
WR: Allen Robinson II vs. DET
DraftKings: $6,700 | FanDuel: $6,900
Allen Robinson’s agent voiced displeasure with his client’s red zone role a couple of weeks ago, and the Bears apparently made it a point of emphasis to get A-Rob the ball in scoring territory coming off the bye. After a two touchdown performance last Sunday night, Robinson again has excellent touchdown upside this week.
WR: T.Y. Hilton @ HOU
DraftKings: $4,300 | FanDuel: $5,600
T.Y. Hilton appears to be heating up a bit, and he now faces a Texans team he has completely dominated throughout his career. The floor is low, but there probably isn’t a better upside value in lineups this week to take a chance on.
WR: Denzel Mims vs. LV (DraftKings) | Cooper Kupp @ ARI (FanDuel)
Mims: $4,100 | Kupp: $6,600
Rookie Denzel Mims has been getting good looks in the Jets offense, and he could be due to find the end zone for the first time in his career. For FanDuel, there’s enough salary to go with Cooper Kupp as a stack with Jared Goff; the two connected for touchdowns in both games versus the Cardinals last season.
TE: Darren Waller @ NYJ
DraftKings: $6,100 | FanDuel: $7,200
As the Raiders offense looks to put last week behind them, running the passing attack through Darren Waller will likely be a top priority for Jon Gruden. Waller is the top tight end play of the day games on Sunday and is worth the price.
FLEX: Henry Ruggs III @ NYJ
DraftKings: $4,500 | FanDuel: $5,400
Henry Ruggs has the talent to be one of those guys that breaks out down the stretch of a season, and this Sunday against the Jets might be a good time for it to start. Expect the Raiders offense to bounce back, potentially with a gamebreaking play or two from Ruggs.
D/ST Chargers vs. NE
DraftKings: $2,600 | FanDuel: $3,900
The Chargers haven’t been great defensively this season, but neither has Cam Newton and the Patriots offense. Taking a chance on Joey Bosa making some game-changing plays comes at a low cost for Week 13.
