Week 13 FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS lineup, advice for cash games

A high-priced Chiefs stack highlights our Week 13 FanDuel cash lineup picks, but we've found several value sleepers who could help us take down NFL DFS cash contests.

We were basically bust free in last week's FanDuel cash lineup, though James Conner and the Browns D/ST didn't exactly light the world on fire. Russell Wilson and Leonard Fournette each had two TDs and good yardage totals, while JuJu Smith-Schuster and Tyler Lockett each went over 100 yards with a TD. Mike Evans and Matt Breida also went over 100 yards, while Chris Herndon had a respectable-for-a-TE 7-57 line. Our Week 13 NFL DFS picks will be even better

We're paying up for a pair of Chiefs against the Raiders because that just seems like a smart thing to do. That leaves us low on funds to fill out our other positions, but some great values presented themselves at RB, and we managed to find WRs with high floors in favorable matchups. Our TE and D/ST are going against each other, but both can have good games based on the stats.

You might like some other alternatives (you can jam in Christian McCaffrey instead of Lamar Miller if you swap Matthew Stafford for Patrick Mahomes), but check out our lineup and strategy when building your own winning lineup. Good luck in Week 13!

  • You can argue that Mahomes will pack it in after 250 yards and two TDs while Kareem Hunt and Spencer Ware run out the clock in the fourth quarter in this projected blowout (see Arizona in Week 10), but as long as one of those TDs is to Hunt or Mahomes goes for closer to his season averages (330 yards, 3.5 total TDs), we'll be just fine paying this exorbitant price. Considering the Raiders gave up multiple TDs to Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen, and Nick Mullensin three of the past four games, we feel pretty good about Mahomes' chances.

  • Hunt has at least one receiving touchdown in five of the past six games, and he hasn't gone below 86 total yards in any game since Week 3. Like Mahomes, the high price might scare off some, but there aren't many more bankable RBs on this week's main slate.

  • Miller screams undervalued at this price, regardless of what happens Monday night. He's had at least 14 touches in every game this year, and he averaged 12.7 standard fantasy points in the four games prior to Week 12. He's not exciting, but against the Browns, who allow the seventh-most fantasy points per game to RBs, Miller has a high floor and high ceiling.

  • Since Week 4, the Lions have allowed multiple WR touchdowns in all but two games. Woods had 11 targets last week and at least seven in each of the games Cooper Kupp has missed this year, so expect a similar workload against a weak Lions secondary.

  • Sanders went off last week for 86 yards and a score on 12 targets, and he has similar upside this week against a Bengals team that entered Week 12 allowing the ninth-most FPPG to WRs. The loss of TE Jeff Heuerman could open up a few more targets for Sanders.

  • Fitzgerald has scored in four of the past five games, but he's only caught four passes on six targets over the past two weeks. It's dangerous to trust someone with so few opportunities, but Fitzgerald had 22 targets in his two games before that, so it's unclear what's going to happen this week. He could score, get 10 targets, or get both. Against the Packers, who entered Week 12 allowing the seventh-most FPPG to WRs, Fitzgerald should have a decent floor.

  • The Panthers have taken advantage of matchups against teams that rarely use their TE the past two weeks (Detroit, Seattle), but they're still the worst defense against the position. O.J. Howard scored twice when these teams met in Week 9, so Brate has all kinds of upside at a relatively affordable price point.

  • Howard owners hate him after his performance the past three weeks (36 carries, 97 yards, no TDs), so now's the time to grab him at at relatively cheap price. The Giants have allowed at least 86 rushing yards and a TD to lead running backs in each of their past four games, so this is the perfect bounce-back spot.

  • The Bucs managed not to throw an INT last week for only the second time all season. They won't make it two games in a row. Ryan Fitzpatrick took three sacks and threw two INTs against Carolina in Week 9, and Winston has the potential for even more this week.
