FanDuel NFL DFS Lineup Picks for Week 13 - Daily Fantasy Football

After three games on Thanksgiving, Week 13 rolls on with 11 games on FanDuel's 1 pm (eastern) "main slate." As teams continue to battle for playoff positions, others will opt to prepare for next season by giving snaps to guys who would normally not play as much. Keep an eye on these scenarios as it may open the door for some value plays moving ahead. Expect Oakland at Kansas City to lead the slate with a projected overall score of nearly 55 points, so this would be the place to stack if you are able.

In this article, I will be providing you with daily fantasy football picks in FanDuel for December 1, 2019 (Week 13). These lineups can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. Be sure to also consult the NFL Depth Charts and Snap Counts for more critical information this week.

FanDuel Quarterbacks - Week 13 Picks

Patrick Mahomes - QB, vs. OAK ($8,600)

Mahomes appeared to be well on his way to another MVP season after the first three weeks of the season. However, things started to unravel as the team was plagued with injuries across the board, with Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Damien Williams, and even Mahomes himself all dealing with various ailments throughout the season. With most of the team ready to roll on Sunday after having a bye in the week prior, the former 2017 10th overall pick, who had 443 yards and four touchdowns against Oakland in Week 2, could return to form as the Chiefs try to gain ground heading into the playoffs.

Kyler Murray - QB, vs. LAR ($7,700)

The Rams Defense was average at defending opposing quarterbacks through the year but has struggled as of late by allowing a sixth-worst 20.49 fantasy points over the last month. Los Angeles has also given up a second-worst 96 rushing yards to this position in the last two weeks, which should translate well for Murray, who continues to get plenty of chances running the ball. He has hit at least 23.04 fantasy points in each of his last three games and could rival Mahomes' numbers at a lower price.

Also Consider: Lamar Jackson ($8,700), Jared Goff ($7,900), Sam Darnold ($7,600), Jameis Winston ($7,600), Nick Foles ($7,500), Ryan Tannehill ($7,300), Kyle Allen ($7,200)


FanDuel Running Backs - Week 13 Picks

Derrick Henry - RB, @ IND ($8,600)

Henry is questionable with a hamstring injury but has managed to practice in a limited capacity. With the Titans attempting to gain ground on the Texans in the AFC South, he should be ready to roll in a crucial game with the Colts on Sunday. Henry has been on a tear this month, racking up six touchdowns, while also accruing at least 23.4 fantasy points in each of his last three games. Keep an eye on his status, but if he is good to go, make sure he is in your lineup.

Josh Jacobs - RB, @ KC ($7,700)

Jacobs had three touchdowns in November and has a favorable matchup on Sunday against a Chiefs team that has struggled defending the run. He only produced 4.1 fantasy points against the Jets in Week 12, with his lack of output caused by New York blowing out the Raiders 34-3. As usual, Jacobs is carrying an injury designation heading into this one as a result of a shoulder ailment, but this has been the norm for him as of late.

Also Consider: Christian McCaffrey ($11,000), Nick Chubb ($8,200), Leonard Fournette ($7,600), Le'Veon Bell ($7,400), Jonathan Williams ($6,800), Benny Snell Jr. ($6,100), LeSean McCoy ($5,800)


FanDuel Wide Receivers - Week 13 Picks

Tyreek Hill - WR, vs. OAK ($8,300)

Hill had had 23 receptions and two touchdowns on 37 targets heading into the Week 11 Mexico City matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. Unfortunately for him, he suffered a hamstring injury in that one and was forced to watch most of the game from the sidelines. With a bye week behind him, the 25-year-old has practiced in full over the last few days and should be good to go against the Raiders in Week 13. Expect this game to be a shootout, so Hill should rack of plenty of fantasy points by the time everything is said and done.

D.J. Chark - WR, vs. TB ($6,900)

Chark has been one of the most under appreciated fantasy receivers this season. With 56 catches for 834 yards and eight touchdowns, he has the ability to go off at any moment. The Buccaneers Defense had been horrendous at defending the pass in 2019 and have allowed an average of 47.29 fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts.

Also Consider: Chris Godwin ($8,200), Davante Adams ($8,000), Cooper Kupp ($7,800), Mike Evans ($7,700), Jarvis Landry ($7,400), Jamison Crowder ($6,300), Darius Slayton ($6,300), James Washington ($6,200), Christian Kirk ($6,100), Devante Parker ($6,000), Sterling Shepard ($5,900), Zach Pascal (5,400), A.J. Brown (5,300), Diontae Johnson ($5,300)


FanDuel Tight Ends - Week 13 Picks

Travis Kelce - TE, vs. OAK ($7,100)

Kelce has only received less than six targets once this season and could receive even more looks from Patrick Mahomes if Sammy Watkins isn't able to suit up. The 30-year-old racked up seven receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' first meeting with the Raiders in Week 2 and should be primed for another impressive performance against them in Week 13.

Also Consider: George Kittle ($7,000), Zach Ertz ($6,900), Dallas Goedert ($5,200), Jack Doyle ($5,000)


FanDuel Defenses - Week 13 Picks

Jets Defense - DEF, @ CIN ($4,900)

The Jets are averaging 11 fantasy points over the last three games and will be matched up against one of the worst offenses in the league. The Bengals will turn back to Andy Dalton to handle the reigns at the quarterback position, but they struggled with him under center for most of the season. Expect New York to do some damage defensively in Week 13.

Also Consider: Packers Defense ($4,800), Panthers Defense ($4,700), Titans Defense ($4,100)
