FanDuel NFL DFS Lineup Picks for Week 13 - Daily Fantasy Football Targets Include Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, Austin Ekeler, Jamaal Williams, Travis Kelce, Tyler Boyd, Davante Adams

Week 12 featured some standout performances from guys who haven't done much of anything this season. Mike White got the start against the Bears and finished with 315 yards and three touchdowns while completing nearly 79% of his throws. Of course, Garrett Wilson certainly benefited from White's stellar performance, as he caught two touchdowns.

And then there was Zay Jones, who caught 11 passes for 145 yards. Dalton Schultz also came back to life, while Josh Jacobs was a top producer on the slate, thanks to his 229 rushing yards and two touchdowns off 33 carries.

In this article, I will be providing you with my Week 13 daily fantasy football lineup picks for FanDuel. These lineups can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. Be sure to also check out our weekly DraftKings DFS lineup picks and lots of other great NFL DFS articles and NFL DFS tools to help you win big! Also, feel free to give me a follow on Twitter @DennisMClausen.

FanDuel Quarterbacks - Week 13 DFS Lineup Picks

Patrick Mahomes - @ CIN ($9,000)

The Bengals beat the Chiefs twice last season, and Mahomes hasn't forgotten about it. During the first meeting, both clubs combined for 75 points before totaling 51 in the AFC Championship. Things are a bit different this time around; Tyreek Hill is no longer in Kansas City, and Cincinnati's offensive line was upgraded in the offseason.

However, nothing has changed in terms of expectations, as Vegas projects this one to be the highest-scoring game on the slate. DFS managers should anticipate Mahomes to be fired up and ready to produce against the team that prevented him from playing in Super Bowl LVI versus the Rams.

Joe Burrow - vs. KC ($8,300)

Burrow has been without Ja'Marr Chase, Joe Mixon, and Tee Higgins at times throughout the 2022-23 campaign. Despite that, the signal-caller is a top-five fantasy quarterback. We have already established that the meeting between the Chiefs and Bengals should feature plenty of scoring.

With FanDuel Sportsbook listing Kansas City as the -2.5-point favorite, both quarterbacks could be throwing until the end. Mahomes isn't the only one who has had this game circled on the calendar, as the former LSU Tiger is looking to cement his status as one of the league's very best while proving last season's Super Bowl appearance wasn't a fluke.

Also Consider: Jalen Hurts ($8,800), Justin Herbert (8,100), Trevor Lawrence (7,500)


FanDuel Running Backs - Week 13 DFS Lineup Picks

Austin Ekeler - @ LV ($9,200)

Justin Herbert had his best game of the season in Week 12 against Arizona, with Ekeler playing a pivotal role in his success. The 27-year-old drew 15 targets in the narrow win, one less than his career-high, and caught 11 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.

Ekeler has historically played relatively well against Las Vegas throughout his career, finding the end zone six times in his 10 meetings against the AFC West rival. Keenan Allen is back after being sidelined for most of the season with a bum hamstring, so the wideout's presence should continue to take some pressure off Ekeler moving ahead.

Jamaal Williams - vs. JAC ($7,500)

D'Andre Swift wasn't available throughout nearly the entire month of October because of a shoulder issue, allowing Williams to be the featured back. Swift has since returned, and while he has had a few rushing touchdowns, he has been getting most of his work as a pass-catcher.

It's apparent Williams isn't going away anytime soon. He's logged 75 carries over the last four games and has scored seven times in the previous five weeks. The veteran has surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark only once this year, but there haven't been many games where he hasn't found the end zone. As a result, he deserves strong consideration versus the Jags in Week 12.

Also Consider: Josh Jacobs ($9,500), Travis Etienne Jr. (8,000), Brian Robinson ($6,600), Dameon Pierce ($6,500)

FanDuel Wide Receivers - Week 13 DFS Lineup Picks

Davante Adams - vs. LAC ($8,600)

Adams had a few rough weeks this season. However, the multi-time Pro Bowler hasn't messed around over his last four games. During that span, he's caught 33 of his 55 targets for a whopping 487 yards and five touchdowns.

Adams was targeted 17 times against the Chargers in the season opener, one less than the rest of the receiving corps combined. The Raiders have won two-in-a-row for the first time in 2022-23, and with L.A. dealing with several key injuries since the first time these clubs met, Adams should be a lock for Week 12.

Tyler Boyd - vs. KC ($6,300)

While many believed Boyd would flourish without Ja'Marr Chase on the field, he hasn't. Since Chase has been sidelined, Boyd has caught only 12 passes in the last four games. He's also had 44 yards or less in each of them.

Fortunately, Chase should be back for the Week 13 showdown with Kansas City, so Boyd should be back to his usual role in the slot. Given his recent struggles, most DFS participants won't give him any consideration. However, now is the perfect time to get him back in the lineup.

Also Consider: Tyreek Hill ($9,000), Ja'Marr Chase ($8,900), Christian Kirk (7,500), Joshua Palmer ($6,600), Garrett Wilson ($6,600)


FanDuel Tight Ends - Week 13 DFS Lineup Picks

Travis Kelce - @ CIN ($8,400)

Kelce has 12 receiving touchdowns, good for the top spot in the National Football League. He also leads all tight ends with 73 receptions, 21 more than Mark Andrews, and he's also nearing the 1,000-yard receiving mark.

For those not looking to take a chance, Kelce needs to be in the lineup. The All-Pro played well in the two matchups against the Bengals last year, totaling 15 receptions (18 targets) for 120 yards and two scores. Considered the Chiefs are dealing with some injuries on the offensive end, Mahomes is expected to look in Kelce's direction often in Week 13.

Also Consider:  T.J. Hockenson ($6,400), David Njoku ($5,800)
