I’m a high-stakes NFL DFS player who mainly plays on Fanduel and DraftKings. In this article, I will be talking about some of my favorite plays for the Week 13 slate:
DraftKings QB: Trevor Siemian ($4,800)
Siemian offers great savings on DK this week at just $4,800 going up against the terrible Dolphins defense. Miami has allowed three straight QB1 finishes and has recently been lit up by Tom Brady (277 yards and 4 TDs), Ryan Fitzpatrick (275 yards and 2 TDs), Derek Carr (300 yards and 1 TD) and Cam Newton (254 yards and 4 TDs). Miami also allows the 2nd highest passer rating to enemy QBs and has the 31st ranked pass defense DVOA. Siemian has been boom or bust this season but has shown he still has upside by clearing 20+ DK points in 3 of 8 games this season. Siemian tends to lock in on Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas, who will be matched up with Miami corners Xavien Howard (PFF’s 117th out of 118 CB) and Cordrea Tanksersley (73rd).
FanDuel QB: Russell Wilson ($8,200)
Wilson has a tough on-paper matchup with the stout Eagles front 7, but it should be noted that the Eagles have given up huge fantasy games to Kirk Cousins (303 yards and 3 TDs), Phillip Rivers (347 yards and 2 TDs) and Eli Manning (366 yards with 3 TDs). The Eagles have a run funnel defense as they have given up the least amount of rush yards to opposing RBs but the 14th most pass yards. Wilson has absolutely been on a tear, averaging 27.33 FD points per game over his past 6 games. To further Wilson’s outlook, he has added 7 rush attempts and a rush TD in each his past two games and has gone over 25+ FD points in 4 of his 5 home games this season.
