Fantasy Football: Best Value Plays for NFL Week 13 on DraftKings

Are you running out of cap room on DraftKings? Want to get the most bang for your buck when you're squeezing those final players into your lineup? We've got you covered.

Rollin and Adam, from The Low Blow Sports Show, have compiled their best values for Week 13 of the NFL for one-day/week fantasy football on

For a more comprehensive take on this week’s matchups, beyond DraftKings, check out our Fantasy Forecast podcast, featuring Rollin and Allen.


ROLLIN: Phillip Rivers ($6,000)
Lucky you! Since injuring his chest, Rivers simply hasn't been the same. However, he has been on a gradual uptick the last few weeks, and his price tag has yet to show it. He's down $2,300 since his 1.82-point performance against Miami in Week 9.

This week, he's playing a Baltimore defense that ranks 29th against the pass and just allowed Drew Brees his best fantasy performance of the season. With Phil coming around and Keenan Allen finally providing a spark to the offense, I see this as a big payoff.

Also, for a super bargain sleeper—if you're trying to stack high-end backs and receivers—don't overlook the Redskins' new starter, Colt McCoy. In his only start this season, he completed 83 percent of his passes for 299 yards and added a clutch touchdown on the ground.

Don't expect a firestorm, but he could very well hit the 20-point mark against an Indy defense that ranks 20th against the pass.

ADAM: Ryan Tannehill  ($6,900) 
Going against a very suspect defense that is allowing 238 yards a game in the air, and is the 30th-ranked defense against quarterbacks, I really like this match-up. While I don't expect him to have the three-touchdown game he had last week, I feel very comfortable in saying he should get you at least 20 points at your quarterback position this week.


ROLLIN: Tre Mason ($4,600)
Despite receiving a lion's share of the totes in St. Louis, Tre Mason is staying cheap due to a lack of scoring by the Rams. However, he has faced a bevvy of stingy defenses since becoming the lead tailback. This week, he'll be up against the Oakland Raiders, who are giving up 127 yards per game on the ground and rank 26th against backs on DraftKings.

Mason should get a lot of carries on Sunday and will likely get a handful of targets to boot. The St. Louis defense has also been playing lights out, which is the complete opposite of Oakland's offense. This game could produce a lot of short-field opportunities for the rookie.

ADAM: Darren Sproles ($4,500)
This week versus Dallas ,I think the Birds are going to utilize the crap out of No. 43. He will get rushing attempts, he will get receiving targets. He may be in the same backfield at the same time as Shady McCoy.

I think the Eagles are going to run a very fast paced dink-and-dunk offense this week to:
1. Try to tire out the Dallas defense.
2. Keep the ball out of Romo's hands. Lots of runs and under-routes.


ROLLIN: Keenan Allen ($6,000)
Keenan Allen has finally found consistency again this season, despite Rivers' health issues. Last week against St. Louis, Allen had six catches on eight targets for 107 yards and a touch. This week, he and Phil will be looking to dice up the hobbling Ravens defense.

I like the odds here. But it could be a risky stack with Rivers, so proceed with caution.

ADAM: Jarvis Landry ($5,400)
This here is my value stack of the week. Lately, landry has been Tannehill's favorite target. These two have connected 34 times for 194 yards and four touchdowns the last four games. You know how I feel about the Jets D, and I see Miami making a statement game here.


ROLLIN: Delanie Walker ($4,800)
Allen nailed it last week, as Walker put up a 23.5-point gem against Philly. Zach Mettenberger is clearly a fan, and should continue to send passes his way against a Texans defense that ranks 31st in passing yards given up.

Houston does hold its own against tight ends, giving up the 5th-fewest points to the position on DraftKings. But I have a feeling he will get his.

Also consider Coby Fleener for a bounce-back week against the porous Washington defense in Indianapolis. He'll save you $100 over Walker, too.

ADAM: Niles Paul ($3,200)
This is one where you need to keep your eye on the injury report. If Jordan Reed is a no-go I feel as though Paul is a must-play.

If you listen to our show, you know how much I love pairing tight ends with new quaterbacks. With Colt Mcoy getting the start this week against an Indy team that is ranked 27th in points given up to tight ends, I feel as though this is a value match-up that cannot be overlooked.
