Anyways, onto the DraftKings NFL Week 13 Picks, Sleepers.

Let’s ride.

QUARTERBACKS

Packers: Aaron Rodgers on pace for career-best numbers

  • Aaron Rodgers ($6,800)
    • Take away his one shitty game against the Bucs, and Rodgers has a season-low performance of 19.2 DK points way back in Week 2. Rodgers has been elite this year, throwing for 33 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions. He’s somehow only the fifth-highest priced QB on this slate and not in the 7k range, despite playing remarkable football. The Eagles defense doesn’t scare me one bit.
  • Kirk Cousins ($6,400)
    • Kirk and the Vikings have been in shootouts back to back games now, resulting in 25+ points in each game for the Spartan product. Three touchdown passes in both games and now he gets to face a VERY favorable Jaguars defense that teams have just beaten to a pulp on the offensive end. There’s also a great chance he gets a PMT bump after his recent guest appearance.
  • Mitchell Trubisky ($5,400)
    • Sure, a lot of his production came late in garbage time with the Bears chasing a thousand points. Despite the numerous fumbles, Trubisky can move the ball downfield and has shown many times he can pick up yards with his legs. He’s also had great success against the Lions in the past, and with their defense being the way it is in 2020, anyone has been able to put up numbers facing Detroit.

RUNNING BACKS

James Robinson the latest example of NFL running backs not mattering

  • Dalvin Cook ($9,500)
    • He flopped massively after reaching the absurd 9.5k price tag, but the universe blessed Cook with a get right game with the Jaguars coming to town. Last week, Nick Chubb went for 144 yards on 19 carries, good for 7.6 ypc. Cook has all the abilities to replicate Chubb’s numbers and is even more involved in the passing game. The stars are aligning for a massive Cook week.
  • James Robinson ($7,300)
    • I don’t know how many there are, but James Robinson is a running back who has scored double digits in every contest so far this year. He’s been getting crazy volume with around 20 rushes each game while having involvement in the passing game as well. Minnesota’s defense hasn’t been anything to write home about either, so Robinson feels like a safe and reliable back to see great usage this week.
  • Kenyan Drake ($5,700)
    • Trending back towards bell-cow status, Drake has benefitted nicely from Kyler Murray’s recent avoidance of scrambling. His 22 carries last week was a season-high and he became the clear-cut goal-line option, punching in two scores against the Patriots. While Edmonds garners a bit more of the passing work, Drake still manages to catch a few dump-offs here and there.
  • David Montgomery ($5,500)
    • Technically a bell-cow despite the unsexy production that comes with it, Montgomery exploded for his best performance of the season in Week 12. He finally broke 100 yards and also added a receiving touchdown to his numbers. Detroit’s defense has really struggled this year, so a second big performance from Montgomery certainly isn’t out of the question.
  • Frank Gore ($4,400)
    • An ageless bell-cow! Frank Gore has dominated RB snaps for the Jets with Lamical Perine sidelined on IR for now. His upside is incredibly unsexy, but there’s a reasonable floor for this spry young chicken. Against a bad Raiders defense, Gore has a better chance to maybe reach the 100-yard mark or scoring than in most games. A decent “punt” at RB if you want to go that route.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Allen Robinson Fantasy Outlook Includes Huge Upside Against Eagles in Week 9

  • Adam Thielen ($7,300)
    • Thielen missed last week after being put on the COVID list, but he returns for a smash spot against the Jags in Week 13. With four touchdowns over his last two appearances, Thielen has been a red zone monster and there’s nobody in Jacksonville’s secondary that really poses a threat to slowing him down.
  • Allen Robinson ($6,700)
    • Think Allen Robinson liked having Trubisky back under center? The wideout responded with 8-74-2 on 13 targets against the Packers and should have no problems having his way with Detroit’s secondary this weekend. He’s been a target hog in Chicago and is clearly the team’s best receiver. He’s also scored double digits in every game so far this year except for only one Week 2 dud.
  • DeVante Parker ($6,400)
    • As long as Fitzpatrick is still under center, Parker will be on my radar. His increased target share from Preston Williams’ injury and gunslinger mentality of Fitzpatrick have resulted in a much higher ceiling for Miami’s WR1. The Dolphins will be big favorites over the Bengals this week while Parker should be drawing close to double-digit targets.
  • Robert Woods ($5,900)
    • One of the more consistent receivers this year, Woods has been drawing high target numbers in LA’s offense. He’s had 15 and 12 over the last two games, and McVay’s strange love of his goal-line handoffs to Woods on the jet sweep gives his ceiling a slight bump. Goff has been locked into Woods and Kupp this year and the high target numbers should keep up again this week against the Cardinals.
  • Michael Pittman Jr ($4,900)
    • His final production was very underwhelming against the Titans, but Pittman’s 9 targets have us taking positives from his Week 12 performance. He’s been used heavily in the Colts passing game and has serious touchdown upside thanks to his size and playmaking ability. With Houston up next, it’s a beatable secondary for Pittman and the Colts passing game, especially if Watson continues to light it up offensively forcing a high-scoring game.
  • Breshad Perriman ($3,900)
    • I like both Jets receivers this week, but lean Perriman over Mims for both the upside and savings at the position. Perriman has been a deep threat putting up serious yardage numbers. He’s had big touchdown days like the one against New England earlier in the season, and we just watched the Raiders defense get lit up by Atlanta in Week 12.

TIGHT ENDS

  • Darren Waller ($6,100)
    • The Raiders really struggled offensively last week, but nothing serves as a remedy quite like a game against the Jets. Waller is still the target hog in Las Vegas and he’s looking for a solid bounce-back game here. Waller has also been on a ‘touchdown every other game pace’ dating back to Week 7.
  • TJ Hockenson ($5,000)
    • Obviously aside from Kelce, Hockenson seems like the most reliable tight end there’s been in fantasy this year. He’s been living around double-digit points each week while posting a high target share in Detroit’s offense. Golladay hasn’t resumed practicing yet which only helps Hockenson’s ceiling with increased looks.
  • Robert Tonyan ($3,700)
    • What if I told you that Big Bob Tonyan was the TE4 this season, would you believe it? Well, he is and has been playing much better as of late with Rodgers and the Packers’ offense. With 5 targets/catches and a touchdown in back to back games, Tonyan should stay hot against an Eagles defense that’s struggled with defending tight ends.

DST

  • Green Bay Packers ($3,800)
    • The Eagles offense has looked real bad over their recent stretch of games. Wentz has been sacked way too many times with a banged-up o-line, and he continues to turn the ball over with questionable throws.
  • Seattle Seahawks ($3,300)
    • With Daniel Jones banged up from a hamstring injury, the Giants will likely turn to Colt McCoy as their QB in Week 13. The Seahawks have actually started to tighten up their defensive play, and with McCoy on the opposing side, that’s a great QB to target for sacks and turnovers.
  • New York Jets ($2,100)
    • You might think I’m crazy, but the Jets might end up being somewhat of a decent punt play at the position. In their last two games, the defense has scored 8 and 9 points and now welcomes the Raiders into the Meadowlands. Carr and company looked horrific last week, maybe they can get lucky with some turnovers here and there.
