Fantasy Football Week 13 Sleeper FanDuel Football Picks
Jake Ciely @allinkid of RotoExperts.com gives you the best Week 13 FanDuel contrarian picks and NFL DFS sleepers.
Week 13 Blind Spot Players
In case you're new to this, the Fantasy Blind Spot refers to players that you want to target in tournaments, such as the Millionaire Maker, etc… contrarian players if you will. They usually have one of the following characteristics:
1) have been performing well but haven't had a breakout game or big enough numbers to get Fantasy players talking, and/or
2) are in a price range of other more popular option, and/or
3) have frustrated with disappointing performances but have a great matchup to finally break through
FanDuel Week 13 Sleepers
Russell Wilson $7700 – The Panthers pass defense has been brutal this year, an even with a modest improvement in the second half, they still gave up 296/1 to the rams, 285/2 to the Saints at home and 315/2 to the Raiders. Wilson is back at home and coming off a huge stinker last week. Unlike Cooks at receiver, quarterback ownership being more flat will lead to less people rostering Wilson for a "bounceback" game, but you should. Wilson put up 26.3, 29.5 and 25.3 points before last week and is a great spot to reach that level again in this matchup.
Spencer Ware $7400 – No running back has a better matchup in FPAD, and the Falcons allow the third most FPPG to running backs. They have six games where they allowed 25-plus points, and Ware is still seeing the lion's share of the backfield work. People have cooled on using Ware, as he is a risk for a mediocre outing. However, Ware also has a high ceiling, as we saw earlier this year, and with a heavy workload and cake matchup, Ware could be a low-owned difference maker.
Jeremy Hill $5800 – You'll want to make sure Hill is getting in full practices, but the backfield is all his at this point. Until he left with an injury, Rex Burkhead rarely saw work, and the best part is that Hill caught all six targets for 61 yards. With workloads of 20-plus touches coming for Hill and use in the passing game, Hill has the upside to hit 3x or 4x value if he can find the end zone too.
Doug Baldwin $6900 – After last week's stinker, many will be off the Seahawks, but as you can see with the quarterback pick, I'm "all in" with the Seahawks and doubling down. Baldwin mainly works out of the slot, which means a good dose of Leonard Johnson, who rates quite poorly at defending receivers. In the two games prior to the Bucs letdown, Baldwin had 26.9 and 17.0 points on FanDuel, one game coming with 104 yards and the other with three touchdowns. That shows what we all know; Baldwin can get it done many ways and he will against the Panthers.
Marvin Jones $5600 – No one wants anything to do with Jones at this point, and as a reminder, these are contrarian plays. There is plenty of risk here. However, Jones saw 11 targets last week as the Lions look to work Jones back into the mix. Jones also has the best corner matchup with Delvin Breaux struggling this year and has 11 red zone targets on the year. Obviously, we're hoping for a touchdown here, but the matchup potential gives Jones a good opportunity for one.
Eric Ebron $5700 – Speaking of opportunities for big days, you have to like Ebron, even after posting a goose egg last week. Ebron had 11.4, 12.7 and 14.6 in the three games prior, and that's without even scoring a touchdown. This game has the highest over/under by far at 53.5, which points to both teams scoring plenty and giving their players the opportunity for big FanDuel scores.
