Best NFL DFS Week 13 Plays

Updated:

We have identified the best NFL DFS Week 13 plays. We’ve analyzed the prices at DK and FD to come up with the best stacks, studs, value plays and bargain bin plays for NFL DFS Week 13.

Out of the four QBs we recommended in Week 12, we had the QB1 (Josh Allen), QB3 (C.J. Stroud) and QB10 (Baker Mayfield). I didn’t do well at RB, but had the RB7 (Derrick Henry). Secondary WRs had the best week. I had the WR5 (Mike Evans), WR10, WR12 and WR14. I had the TE8 (Dalton Kincaid) and DST2 (Falcons). It wasn’t my best week and I’ll aim to perform better in NFL DFS Week 13 action.

There are six teams on a bye week and only ten games on the main slate again.

Best Stacks for NFL DFS Week 13

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 13 stacks:

  • C.J. Stroud ($8.1K DK / $8K FD) / Tank Dell ($7.4K DK / $8.2K FD)

There’s no reason to pivot from Stroud in NFL DFS Week 13. Stroud is averaging 22.7 FPPG (DK) and 20.7 FPPG (FD). He has now thrown for 300+ yards in four consecutive games. He has ten passing TDs in his last four games as well. The Broncos are allowing 233.1 PYPG (23rd) this season.

Dell had 17.2 FPs (DK) and 14.7 FPs (FD) last week, but it could have been much better. Dell hauled in a 62-yard catch, but it was negated for an illegal shift penalty. Dell has scored a TD in his last four games. Dell is a red zone target and he has also been adding a bit of production in the run game.

  • Brock Purdy ($6.1K DK / $7.8K FD) / Brandon Aiyuk ($7.2K DK / $8K FD)

Purdy was efficient, but didn’t produce good fantasy numbers last week against Seattle. SF will play the Eagles this week in what should be a more competitive game. Purdy is productive when he has at least two passing TDs. The Eagles allow 255.7 PYPG (29th) and 2.1 passing TDs per game (T30).

Aiyuk isn’t getting a lot of targets, but he’s still producing. This could be a ceiling game for him. Aiyuk has had four games with 100+ receiving yards and he has scored a TD in three consecutive games. I expect his volume to increase against the Eagles, as they’re great at stopping the run (85.3 RYPG – 3rd).

Best Studs for NFL DFS Week 13

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 13 studs at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST:

  • QB: Tua Tagovailoa ($7.9K DK / $8.4K FD)

Tagovailoa has had multiple weak performances from a DFS perspective lately. He only scored 10.82 FPs (DK) and 9.82 FPs (FD) last week. He has a 30+ FPs ceiling, though. He could hit his ceiling this week, as the Commanders are allowing 264.6 PYPG (30th) and 2.3 passing TDs per game (32nd).

Potential Stack: Tyreek Hill ($9.6K DK / $10K FD)

  • RB: Kyren Williams ($7.2K DK / $8.5K FD)

Williams came back from injury last week and rushed for 143 yards on 16 carries. He also had six catches for 61 yards. He scored 41.4 FPs (DK) and 35.4 FPs (FD). The Rams need to make Williams a focal point on offense. He’s averaging 5.3 yards per carry. The Browns are allowing 105.9 RYPG (12th).

  • WR: Keenan Allen ($9K DK / $9K FD)

Allen has been rolling the last three weeks. He has 14+ targets, 10+ receptions and 106+ receiving yards in each of his last three games. He also has three TDs in his last three games. Allen is one of the best NFL DFS Week 13 plays, especially on PPR sites. The Patriots allow 222.7 PYPG (16th).

  • TE: Sam LaPorta ($5.6K DK / $7K FD)

LaPorta has had a great rookie season. He had five receptions for 47 yards and 1 TD on Thanksgiving. He’s averaging 13.0 FPs (DK) and 10.5 FPs (FD), which is solid for a TE. He has five TDs this season. The Saints struggle against TEs. They’ve allowed four TDs to TEs in their last four games.

  • DST: Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($3.6K / $4.8K FD)

The Buccaneers DST is averaging 7.5 FPPG on DK and FD. They’ve had double-digit FPs in just three games and only once in their last seven games. However, they get the Panthers this week. Carolina are inept on offense. Bryce Young has three games with multiple INTs. I like the Bucs in NFL DFS Week 13.

Best Value Plays for NFL DFS Week 13

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 13 value plays at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST:

  • QB: Derek Carr ($5.6K DK / $7K FD)

Carr hasn’t thrown a TD in two consecutive games. He threw for 304 yards last week, though. The TDs will come. At this price, Carr could crush value if he throws for two TDs against the Lions. The Lions are allowing 227.5 PYPG (20th) and have allowed eight passing TDs in their last three games.

Potential Stack: Chris Olave ($6.9K DK / $7.5K FD) (Check Status)

  • RB: Rhamondre Stevenson ($6K DK / $7.3K FD)

Stevenson has performed well in his last three games. He rushed for 87+ yards in his last three games and has scored two TDs. He has had 4+ targets in each of his last six games as well. The Chargers are allowing 110.6 RYPG (14th) and 1.2 rushing TDs per game (T26) this season.

  • WR: Josh Downs ($5.1K DK / $6.1K FD)

Downs didn’t hit for us last week, but I’m going back to the well for NFL DFS Week 13. He had 13 targets last week, but only hauled in five catches for 43 yards. With that type of target share, Downs could end up exploding and at this price point, we can’t pass that up. The Titans are allowing 24. PYPG (19th).

  •  TE: David Njoku ($4.1K DK / $5.6K FD)

Njoku has been consistently producing at TE, but he hasn’t been among the top TEs most weeks, so it’s difficult to target him. Njoku has had 8+ targets in five of his last six games. He has only scored a TD in two of those games, though. If he finds the endzone, he’ll exceed value at this price.

  • DST: San Francisco 49ers ($3K DK / $4.2K FD)

The 49ers DST is offering great value at DK at $3K for NFL DFS Week 13. The 49ers DST has scored 9.0+ FPs in each of their last three games, including 20.0 FPs in Week 10. The Eagles offense is deadly, but the 49ers force INTs, recover fumbles and get pressure on the QB.

Best Bargain Bin Sleepers for NFL DFS Week 13

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 13 bargain bin plays (one RB and one WR):

  • Najee Harris ($5.2K DK / $7.2K FD)

Harris is priced really low on DK, but he’s not a bargain bin play at FD. There really aren’t a lot of bargain bin targets at RB for NFL DFS Week 13. Harris had 15 carries for 99 yards and 1 TD last week. It was by far his best game of the season. The Cardinals are allowing 140.1 RYPG (30th).

  • WR: Jonathan Mingo ($3.3K DK / $5.4K FD)

I went with Mingo in this spot last week. He scored 10.0 FPs (DK) and 8.0 FPs (FD). He hauled in four of six targets for 60 yards, but he couldn’t find the endzone. The Buccaneers allow 267.8 PYPG (31st). Will this be the game Mingo finally breaks out? I’m banking on it. The matchup couldn’t get much better.
