Week 13 FanDuel Cash-Game Picks

By Kevin English 3:12pm EST 12/4/20

Quarterback

Taysom Hill, Saints ($7,700) at Atlanta

Week 13 doesn’t turn up an obvious cash game QB. So there’s merit to paying down and going with the guy listed below — Turbisky — against a thin Detroit secondary.

On the higher end, I’m looking to a $7.7K Taysom Hill. He’s popped in a pair of rushing scores in back to back weeks, effectively acting as a goal line back. He isn’t being asked to do much as a passer, but he just carved up this defense in Week 11 to the tune of 233 yards on 18-of-23 passing.

Also consider: Mitchell Trubisky

Running back

Austin Ekeler, Chargers ($7,000) vs. New England

Ekeler returned last week and handled 14 of 22 RB carries; 16 of 17 RB targets. Clearly, his hamstring is fine. Ekeler’s not even listed on the Week 13 injury report.

With the Pats entering as just 1.5-point underdogs, this profiles as a close game where Ekeler’s dual threat skill set can shine. New England sits a disappointing 24th in Pro Football Focus’ run D grades.

Devontae Booker, Raiders ($6,000) at New York Jets

Josh Jacobs will miss Sunday’s action against the Jets. With Jacobs active, Booker was already working his way into 6-8 weekly touches. Now, I expect that number to hover around 15.

With the Raiders implied for 27 points, Booker looks like a decent TD bet.

Also consider: Dalvin Cook, Derrick Henry, James Robinson, David Montgomery

Wide receiver

Davante Adams, Packers ($9,500) vs. Eagles

Despite a massive salary, Adams sits a clear #1 in our $/point rankings. He’s scored in 6 straight and draws a Philadelphia secondary that’s dealing with a banged up Darius Slay (calf).

Adams should deliver once again.

DeVante Parker, Dolphins ($6,800) vs. Cincinnati

As of Friday night, it sounds like there’s a decent chance Ryan Fitzpatrick will make another start. That’s a positive for Parker, who’s caught 4+ balls in 6 of 8 starts alongside Fitz.

That stretch includes last week’s 14-target, 119-yard outing last week against the Jets. With Miami’s backfield as banged up as it’s been all year, it’s easy to see the passing game being featured against a bad Cincy pass D.

Brandin Cooks, Texans ($6,500) vs. Indianapolis

Cooks will likely wind up as the highest owned WR of the slate. Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb are out.

Cooks, meanwhile, should run a good chunk of his routes against struggling CB Rock Ya-Sin, who had his snaps scaled back last week against the Titans.

At bottom, Cooks is just underpriced for his clear-cut #1 role in a game played indoors. Plug him in and move along.

Also consider: Calvin Ridley, Allen Robinson, Cooper Kupp, Keke Coutee

Tight end

Dallas Goedert, Eagles ($6,200) at Green Bay

Zach Ertz will return this week, but HC Doug Pederson said the team will “have to be smart” about his usage given his extended layoff. I think Ertz mostly takes from Richard Rodgers, especially with how well Goedert’s played.

He’s scored in back-to-back weeks, a stretch that’s included a pair of 75+ yard outings. The Eagles enter Sunday as 9-point road underdogs, so pass volume looks likely to surface against the high-scoring Packers.

Note: Green Bay’s allowed the 3rd fewest catches to enemy TEs, but they’ve faced a very light schedule. Still, Darren Waller’s only $800 more, so if you have the funds, he’s certianly in play against the Jets.

Also consider: Darren Waller

Defense

Packers ($4,100) vs. Eagles

Raiders ($4,400) at Jets
