FanDuel NFL GPP Lineup Advice: Week 13 (2019)
Whether you hit it big in DFS on Thanksgiving or ended up drowning your sorrows in a food coma, the NFL is back with an 11-game main slate on Sunday. There are some interesting potential stacking options and one-off fliers to consider in GPPs on FanDuel this week who I think will be low-owned and have plenty of upside. So, let’s earn some cheddar as everyone’s attention turns to the Christmas season.
So, with that let’s stack’em up for Week 13.
QB Jared Goff (LAR): $7,900 / WR Cooper Kupp (LAR): $7,800
Goff has been a turkey in each of the last three games with zero touchdown passes and five interceptions while throwing for less than 250 yards in each game. So, now is the perfect time to get on board the gravy train with Goff in a great bounce-back spot against the fast-paced Cardinals. The Cardinals have allowed over 300 passing yards in four straight games while yielding an average of three touchdown passes per game during that stretch. Even if DFS players want to consider Goff due to the matchup, his salary might scare them away as he is the fifth most expensive quarterback on the slate. Pair up Goff with any of his wide receivers, my preference would be Kupp, as I expect Goff to lean on his most reliable target to try to get back on track. You can get contrarian with the bring it back wide receiver for the Cardinals by pivoting to Fitzgerald instead of Christian Kirk who should draw more coverage from Jalen Ramsey.
Bring it back with: Larry Fitzgerald (ARI): $5,700
QB Sam Darnold (NYJ): $7,600 / WR Robby Anderson (NYJ): $6,100
Darnold has played well the last two weeks in plus matchups averaging 304 passing yards and three touchdowns against the Raiders and Redskins. Darnold and the Jets draw another favorable matchup for their passing game this week against the Bengals. The Bengals pass defense ranks 31st Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) according to FootballOutsiders this season and has allowed a league-high 10.2 yards per attempt over the last five weeks. Those big plays should fit nicely with the Jets’ big-play wide receiver Robby Anderson who has scored in back-to-back weeks and is always a threat for a long score. Bring it back with Boyd who gets a quarterback upgrade with Andy Dalton back under center this week.
Bring it back with: Tyler Boyd (CIN): $6,000
RB Phillip Lindsay (DEN): $6,300 / DEF Broncos: $4,400
For the running back/defense correlation you could consider more chalky options like Miles Sanders and the Eagles D/ST, or Christian McCaffrey and the Panthers D/ST, but instead, I’ll dig a little deeper with a Lindsay and Broncos D/ST combo. Lindsay has started to pull away from Royce Freeman in the Broncos backfield with 38 carries compared to 15 over the last three games. Lindsay will face a Chargers run defense that ranks 27th DVOA this season. The Broncos will likely focus on the ground game at home with a young quarterback under center with either Brandon Allen or Drew Lock. The Chargers have allowed 2.5 sacks and coughed up 2.0 turnovers per game over the last five weeks.
Lamar Jackson (QB – BAL): $8,700
I’m not really sure what kind of ownership percentage Jackson will have this week, but whatever it is it is probably too low. I’m expecting many to shy away from Jackson given the matchup against the 49ers while Patrick Mahomes in a much better matchup against the Raiders is $100 cheaper. However, I wouldn’t sleep on Jackson this week in GPPs as the 49ers have allowed the most rushing yards to opposing quarterbacks over the last five weeks which has included mobile guys like Kyler Murray (twice) and Russell Wilson. If Murray can have success with his legs and through the air as he did, then Jackson certainly can as well.
- Carson Wentz (QB – PHI): $7,300
- Ronald Jones (RB – TB): $6,200
- Derrius Guice (RB – WAS): $5,400
- Alshon Jeffery (WR – PHI): $6,500
- Sammy Watkins (WR – KC): $6,100
- Devante Parker (WR – MIA): $6,000
- Mike Williams (WR – LAC): $5,700
