There are only four games on the Week 13 NFL DFS main slate with a tight Vegas line of fewer than five points out of the 11 games. Much of the focus for my Cash game lineups on FanDuel and DraftKings this week will zero in on players from those four games.

There are also many strong running back options on this slate, starting right at the top with a couple of high-priced backs in favorable matchups. Your lineup construction will change dramatically depending on using zero, one, or two of these running backs. Get a look at my thoughts on this debate as we head into Week 13.

The players below are ones I’m looking at for cash game considerations for Week 13 main slates:



Justin Herbert (LAC): $6,700 vs. CIN
Herbert has attempted over 40 passes in each of his last two games and has tossed at least 34 passes in every game this season. It is like the equivalent of getting a wide receiver that consistently gets double-digit targets or a running back that gets 20-plus touches every week.

Now take that volume and pair it up with a matchup against the Bengals pass defense that has allowed 8.1 yards per attempt (30th) over the last five weeks, and the yardage should come in bunches for Herbert. Herbert has also thrown for multiple scores in four of his previous five games, while the Bengals are allowing 1.75 touchdown passes (23rd) per game during that stretch.
