Are you ready for some football? We’re in the December home stretch of games, as we look at some Week 13 Draftkings picks.

It’s free to play, and you can meet some new friends/ enemies every week.
Each week another player hoists the chalice of fantasy points, with Dalvin Cook being one of the big points getters every week. In week 12 Tyreek Hill exploded for 57.9 fantasy points, as he shredded the field for big games. Will Fuller also had a great week with 35.1 points, then tested positive for PID’s, and is gone for the rest of the season. If you had him in Fantasy (like I did), you would be extremely pissed off.
Here are some value picks to look at for Week 13 in the NFL.
Derek Carr $5800
Remember the adage for NFL Fantasy 2020? Take anyone who is playing the Jets. This week that honour belongs to Derek Carr. Carr is atrocious last week, as the Atlanta Falcons literally took a dump on the Raiders in a vicious beating. Carr will be out for blood this week against the Jets, & with Josh Jacobs out, this could put all the pressure on Carr to connect downfield.
Ryan Fitzpatrick $6000
Tua is a game time decision, so you might want to hold the finger on this one. Brian Flores would be an idiot to start Tua if he is anywhere near injured. I don’t even like the fact that they started him at all this season, as he should have been allowed to cook under Fitzmagic until he was ready. He should have plenty of time against a weakened Bengals D, connecting with Gesicki and Parker all day long .
Dalvin Cook $9500
It’s Cook versus the Jaguars, and it doesn’t look good for the cats. Jacksonville’s front D has gotten better in the past few weeks, allowing Mike Glennon to attempt to keep the team in the game. While the Vikings might suck in the secondary, all you have to do is give the ball to this guy and watch the points roll in. Yes, he is the priciest for the week, so you might want to consider your options before blowing your load on Cook. That came out wrong.
Giovani Bernard $5200
Joe Mixon is out, which once again heaps the pressure on Bernard to perform. He’s actually done not bad, considering the team is a shell of themselves after losing Joe Burrow. They’ll need Bernard to try to find some holes in that Miami D, which he should do.
Michael Pittman Jr. $4900
The Colts took a dick-punch last week, and you wonder how long it took them to heal after that tough loss. Pittman has fast become Phillip Rivers go to guy, and he should find some big holes in a weakened Texans squad. Houston is in trouble after being caught in the performance enhancing drugs scandal, and it will show this Sunday.
Jakobi Meyers $5500
The Patriots won last weekend! But Cam Newton had to apologise after it was apparent he had nothing to really do with the win. This should be Cam’s last year in New England, but Meyers should be there a long time after he’s gone. He’s got great hands, and an impressive yards after the catch to boot. Belichick will lean on him often on Sunday in a fast Chargers defence.
Tyler Boyd $4700
Boyd is the best player on a shit team, so you would figure he should see the ball. Allen will have no one to really throw to against the Dolphins, so look for Boyd to find any hole possible. Miami will open up some holes in their D for Boyd to find room, he should be able to get you some solid points for less than $5k.
Mike Gesicki $5500
A favourite target on the Dolphins squad, Gesicki always seems to find the end zone when you need him. He is quickly emerging as the go-to target for both Tua and Fitzmagic, filling a role greatly needed on this team. He continues to chunk in points, averaging 8.7 fppg.
Robert Tonyan $3700
An even better value is Tonyan, who will be looked at often by Aaron Rodgers. Boasting an impressive 12.5 fppg, Tonyan is used often in the redzone and slot slants. He is a big guy, with big hands and likes to lower the shoulders. He should be looked at often in week 13.
Despite a vicious beating last week at the hands of the Titans, the Colts will look to rebound in week 13. For one thing, they don’t have to face Derek Henry once again. Luckily the Texans don’t pose much of a threat after losing loads of players to drugs last week. Houston has a poor O line, so Deshaun Watson could be in for a hell of a day.
