Week 13 DraftStreet Lineup

Consider using their recommended players in this week’s FantasyPros Challenge. Also be sure to try out our salary cap analysis tool to find more undervalued players for DraftStreet, FanDuel, and DraftKings.
Name one player that you will likely have in your DraftStreet lineup for Week 13. Why do you like him?
“Over the last couple of weeks Carson has improved a great deal on his touchdown to interception ratio providing solid performances. Going up against the Eagles with his main pass catchers (fFitzgerald, Floyd, and Housler) being the healthiest they have been all year. Carson Palmer will give you the solid numbers in Week 13 albeit the upside is limited. This will allow you to spend the extra money on established skill position players as the best basement bargain Quarterback available.”
Terrance Bridget, Fantasy Trade 411
“Have to love the value here as Palmer has finished with 20-plus Fantasy Points in back-to-back games, his top two highest outputs on the season, now has two legit Fantasy wide receiving options in Larry Fitzgerald (three touchdowns last two games) and Michael Floyd (over 100 yards receiving in his last two games), and oh yeah, the Eagles are allowing the most Fantasy Points to wide receivers.”
Michael Pichan, RotoInfo
E.J. MANUEL (QB, BUF) – $10,184
“This week, I love E.J. Manuel against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have the league’s worst opponent-adjusted defensive efficiency, having allowed 126 points that a league-average defense would prevent. Most of that (~106) has been against the pass; Manuel will have a good chance to light up the Atlanta secondary. At numberFire, we have Manuel projected for 16.8 points in standard leagues, No. 12 among all QBs and his salary is just $10,184 on DraftStreet making him a black friday bargain.”
Keith Goldner, numberFire
“I love Rueben Randle of the Giants this week, as he is listed as the 107th player overall, and he is a bargain at $7,698. Randle has a very favorable match up with the Washington Redskins who have given up 7TD’s to wide receivers in their past 5 games, 26,2 FPS to opposing wideouts, and 22 TD’s through the air overall this year. Randle has gotten more work with Hakeem Nicks being injured, as he had 3 catches on 7 targets and 64 yards total last week against the Cowboys. I love Randle’s 7 touchdown catches and his big physical presence in the red zone, which is exactly the type of receiver the Redskins struggle to cover. I will be taking Randle for sure this week, since he has such a low price tag.”
Dan Yanotchko, EDS Football
SHANE VEREEN (RB, NE) – $9,896
“One guy I’m making sure is in all my DraftStreet games in Shane Vereen. He’s at a solid value at under $10k ($9,896) and is going to be in line for a lot of work against a sinking Houston team. New England has looked great on offense the past two games (when they’re not turning the ball over), while Vereen has been heavily involved in all three games he’s played in this year. He already was averaging over 7 REC per game, but with Stevan Ridley fumbling away a locked-in featured gig, Vereen should see even more work as a true runner, as well.”
Kevin Roberts, NFL Soup
“My 2 year old could run for 100 yards and a score against this banged up Bears defense. Peterson should be living up to his moniker and be running over the Bears “all day”. Crazy to say, but I think Peterson’s floor is close to 150 yards and a TD this week.”
Dan Gaspar, Fantasy Insiders
