NFL Fantasy Football Week 13: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em And FanDuel Picks

For standard leagues, I’ll pick some players outside the top 10 and 15 who I think will play well as well as some higher rated players who I see underachieving using this week’s ESPN rankings. I’ve got my FanDuel picks at the bottom.

Last week, I went 15-5 in my over and under achievers and 12-7 in FanDuel, let’s get to this week’s picks;


  • Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson:  He has been on a roll at home but don’t like his chances on the road at Minnesota.
  • New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees:  He is back home but the Carolina defense will keep his shaky season going the same.
  • New York Giants QB Eli Manning:  The Jets defense is pretty shaky but with no OL in front of him, I can see a few picks.
  • Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman:  You have to play him but the Tampa Bay defense has been great stopping the run.
  • St Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley:  His fantasy totals have been a constant downturn the past 4 weeks and I do not see him turning it around against the Cardinals.
  • Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls:  He will get the touches but expect him to struggle against the Vikings.
  • Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas:  He caught 1/13 last week, something is very wrong here.
  • Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb:  He has proven not to be a WR1 and now goes against Darius Slay of the Lions who is stopping everyone.
  • New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks:  Welcome to Josh Norman island.
  • San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates:  He just doe not look healthy.


  • New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick:  He has the best 1/2 punch at WR and plays the awful Giants.
  • Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill:  He is the king of garbage points and plays the Ravens.
  • Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler:  He is back home where is is best and should be solid.
  • Arizona Cardinals RB  David Johnson:  The Rams have been bottom 5 vs running backs the past 4 weeks.
  • Baltimore Ravens RB Buck Allen:  The Dolphins are poor and he should get 20 touches.
  • Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue:  He has been under the radar but is clearly the RB1 plus the Bills defense is overrated.
  • Oakland Raiders WR Amare Cooper:  The Chiefs defense continues to let WR1’s have huge games every week.
  • Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief:  He came back to life and get the Steelers who gave up 5 passing Td’s last week.
  • Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken:  He continues to be solid every week with a plus match up against the Dolphins.
  • Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme:  I expect the Falcons to stay safe this week in the passing game.

Here are my FanDuel picks for the week where I will give some higher and lower salaries I like at each position. As you will see, I will be focusing on the defenses to pick on:


  • Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis $5,400
  • Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler $7,000
  • New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick $7,300
  • Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton $9,000


  • Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris $5,600
  • Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson $5,900
  • Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue $6,000
  • Denver Broncos RB CJ Anderson $6,800
  • Carolina Panthers RB James Stewart $7,200
  • Pittsburgh Steelers RB D’Angelo Wiliams $7,200


  • Miami Dolphins WR Devonte Parker $5,200
  • Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree $6,600
  • New York Jets WR Eric Decker $7,200
  • Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffrey $7,700
  • Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins $8,900


  • New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler $5,300

  • Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce $6,200
