FanDuel Quick Picks For Week 13
Time flies when you’re allowed to enjoy your God given right to play DFS fantasy football. It’s week 13 already and we’re at that stage where RBs that weren’t drafted in the first ten rounds, if at all in your regular fantasy leagues, are top options. Here are your Quick Picks for week 13.
Quick Tip #1 -Cam Newton – QB – Panthers – ($9000) – There are two ways to play this. #1 – Go against the grain and don’t take Cam hoping that they get a lot of defensive scores and some RB TDs and he rests in the fourth quarter with modest totals. You pick a different QB altogether and the 54% that take Cam are in trouble. #2 – You take Cam because he should and will dominate the terrible Saints defense and you need those points to keep pace with the opposing players. I will probably do one lineup with him and one without him. The last time out vs. the Saints Cam registered 29.9 points posting a stat line of 20-315-2 in the air and 7-33-1 on the ground. Beware of the possible let down game but I only see good things for Cam this week.
Quick Tip #2 – David Johnson – RB – Cardinals ($5900) – My boy is back! David Johnson has waited patiently for his turn to come again and it is finally here. Chris Johnson is out, Andre Ellington is hurting, and David Johnson is big, mean, and chomping at the bit. I can see him doing to the Rams what Jeremy Langford did to them three weeks ago. Langford posted 33.7 points killing the Rams on the ground and the air. The Rams defense has completely fallen apart so there is no reason to fear them.
Quick Tip #3 CJ Anderson – RB – Broncos ($6800)
CJ is starting to emerge again coming off of a big game Monday night vs. New England. He posted a stat line of 15-113-2 on the ground as well as 4-40 through the air. It was right around this time last year that he emerged as a force and it appears to be happening again this year. It is still annoying that Hillman will get touches but every team uses two RBs these days. The San Diego matchup is a good one as they’ve been terrible against the run all year. The price is right and the production could be rewarding.
Quick Tip #4 – Kyle Rudolph- TE – Vikings ($5100)
Kyle Rudolph is coming on strong lately and is being targeted heavily (10 last week) by Terry Bridgewater. Last week he caught 7 balls for 53 yards and the week before that he posted a line of 6-106-1. The matchup may vs. the Seahawks may look suspect at first, but stopping opposing teams TEs have been an issue for the Seahawks D. I think he will put up Greg Olsen type numbers for only $5100.
Quick Tip #5 – Jarvis Landry – WR – Dolphins ($7400)
Jarvis exploded last week for 13-165-1 against a formidable Jets defense. This week he has an excellent matchup vs. the Ravens defense that has been bad all year and had trouble containing the Browns thirds sting QB. The Dolphins Defense has been bad so this should be one of those back and forth high scoring games by two bad teams. I expect Landry to do Antonio Brown type things at a cheaper price.
Below are 5 long shots that have a chance to hit this week along with a small blurb about each one and their Fanduel price. Adding any one of these guys is like adding a long shot into horse racing exacta or trifecta.
Bears D – $4400 – Hey, if they can go on the road and contain Aaron Rogers on Thanksgiving then they sure as hell can score you a decent amount of points at Soldier Field vs. the 49ers. The price allows you to spend elsewhere.
Devin Funchess – WR – $5600 – The Saints just tempt QBs to put up big stats because they’re just so bad defensively. I’m not too worried that the Panthers will score all their points in the running game. Funchess is the guy you remembered last week, forgot about this week, and then wish you put him in a lineup. Nice price, Saints stink.
DeVante Parker- WR – Dolphins $5200- Hey he finally did something last week even though it was in garbage time vs. the Jets. It’s been painful waiting for this guy to produce. The matchup this week vs. the Ravens makes him very tempting if you can’t afford Jarvis Landry.
Matt Schaub – QB -$6200 – Ryan Fitzpatrick had 4 TDs and registered 29 points vs. the Dolphins last week. Schaub could potentially put up 3 TDs and 23 points vs. the Fins and all their ugliness.
James White – RB – $5200 – I’m doing the George Constanza do the opposite of what I’d normally do strategy. Brandon Bolden put up better stats last week so I normally would go with him or Blount. When I do such things those guys do nothing and guys like White do all the scoring. Therefore, I’d just go with White this week for no other reason than it doesn’t make sense to do so.
