2020 NFL DFS Week 13 DraftKings Picks

2021-22 NFL DFS Wild Card Weekend DraftKings Picks

Welcome back to my 2020 NFL DFS Week 13 DraftKings Picks.

Glad to be back this week. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. We had a crazy week in the NFL with a pair of blowouts on Thanksgiving day.

First, there were the Houston Texans and the Detriot Lions. Deshaun Watson and Will Fuller combined to rip the hearts out of Lions fans. Watson went for 318 yards and four touchdowns, while Fuller napped six of seven targets for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Unfortunately, Matt Patricia did not make it out with his job. Patricia was fired shortly after the game, and all Lions players past and present rejoiced.

Next, the Washington Football Team took on the Dallas Cowboys for the right to be a first-round loser in the playoffs. The Cowboys defense made Washington look like the best team in football, as they put up 41 points. Antonio Gibson had himself a game with 115 yards and three touchdowns.

Ezekiel Elliott does not look good at all. His burst seems all but gone, and he no longer has the best offensive line in football to run behind.

With that being said, this is a DFS article and we can start the week a new. Here are a few players I like this week.

Taysom Hill, QB, New Orleans Saints, ($6,300)

I am still not sold on Hill being a good NFL QuarterBack, but I am sold on him bringing a great football player. Hill is also great for fantasy, and that's all we really care about. Taysom is going up against the Atlanta Falcons, a team he touched for over 25 points in week 11.

Unfortunately for Atlanta fans, the Falcons are not the type of defense that can make adjustments. So look for Hill to have a repeat performance.

DraftKings outlook:

Fantasy Six pack has Hill projected for over 25 points. Hill has averaged 21 points on DraftKings since becoming a Starter. Atlanta is ranked 27th against the Quarterback position. This is a matchup where Hill can get it done with both his arm and his legs.

Other QBs I Like: Ryan Tannehill ($6,200), Kirk Cousins ($6,400), and Jared Goff ($5,800)

Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks, ($6,300)

Carson is probably coming into week 13 on a pitch count, but he should see an increase from his 37% of snaps in week 12.

Also, there is no question that Carson is the best back on the roster. He has shown that he can do more with less, getting 5.1 YPC on just eight attempts.

DraftKings outlook:

Fantasy Six Pack has Carson projected for over 15 points. The Giants have not been great against the run as they are ranked 25th. The Giants have been playing well against the pass as of late. So if the Seahawks are going to need to run the ball to be effective.

Other RBs I Like: David Montgomery ($5,500), Kenyan Drake ($5,700), and Nyheim Hines ($5,300)

Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings, ($6,900)

Jefferson has been cooking in the last three games. Ever since they moved him out of the slot, Jefferson has been balling out. Jefferson put up three touchdowns in his last two games, and I see that streak continuing in this matchup.

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense ranks second to last against the pass according to Football Outsiders DVOA. The Vikings have been more willy to throw the ball as of late, so expect a lot of those targets to go Jefferson's way.

DraftKings outlook:

Fantasy Six Pack has Jefferson projected for over 17 points. Jacksonville is ranked 26th against the Wide Receiver. Jacksonville is not going to be able to contain the rookie widout once he gets going. Kirk Cousins and the crew are going to run up the score on the Jaguars.

Other WRs I Like: Allen Robinson ($6,700), Jarvis Landry ($6,200), and DeVante Parker ($6,400)

Darren Waller, TE, Las Vegas Raiders ($6,100)

Here's a list of Tightends that has been more consent than Waller - Travis Kelce, end of the list.

Waller is one of the most athletic players at the position and gets to go up against Adam Gase and the New York Jets defense this week. He is in a great spot for a bounce-back game and will be placed in most of my lineups on DraftKings.

DraftKings outlook:

Fantasy Six Pack has Waller projected for over 15 points. Waller is going up against the Jet's bad defense. Ranked 29th against the Tighend there isn't much the jets are good at. Adam Gase is going to continue his quest for the number one draft pick as I don't see this game be competitive.

Other TEs I Like: T.J. Hockenson ($5,000), Mike Gesicki ($4,200), and Austin Hooper ($3,800)
