DraftKings GPP Picks Week 13

It is lucky Week 13 and the beginning of December that has to mean something, right? It is time to either keep that lucky streak going or start one right now (well, Sunday, actually).

I don’t have last week’s Milli Maker winning lineup for you. My apologies. We know that Mike White and Josh Jacobs broke the slate, so if you played either, Kudo.

This week’s four games are intriguing for GPP plays and stacking options. The games are the Jaguars @ Detroit, with a 51 implied total and the Jaguars a -1-road favorite; the Los Angeles Chargers @ Las Vegas Raiders, with a 50.5 implied total and Raiders -1 home favorite; and the Kansas City Chiefs @ Cincinnati Bengals, 53 implied total and the Chiefs -2 road favorite. There is a little interest in the Miami Dolphins vs. San Francisco 49ers game with a 46.5 implied total and the 49ers -4 home favorite, but there is also the possibility this could be a slog fest.

Quarterbacks

Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars @ Detroit Lions, $5900, PFF early draft projections 8.5%

Lawrence has scored at least 20 DraftKings Fantasy Points in back-to-back games (21.0 and 28.9). He now faces the Detroit Lions, who rank 29th in pass defense and have allowed the most DKFP/game to quarterbacks (26).

Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh Steelers @ Atlanta Falcons, $5200, PFF early draft projections 3.2%

Atlanta has given up the 10th-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position (18.2). Pickett has all the weapons to exploit the Falcons’ secondary. In addition, he has run for at least 20 yards in four of his last five games, which raises his floor. From Week 4-11, Pickett was 10th in rushing attempts (29) for quarterbacks.

Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears, $5100, PFF early draft projections 0.0% (Aaron Rodgers, $5800, 3.1%)

This play is, of course, if Rodgers does not go Sunday. Love is the contrarian of contrarian plays.

Last week in the limited action, he went 6-of-9 for 113 passing yards and one touchdown.

Also, consider Justin Herbert at $7200, Jimmy Garoppolo at $5700, and Jared Goff at $5300

Running Backs

Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders v Los Angeles Chargers, $7900, PFF early draft projections, 21.9%

In both a cash and GPP play, there is no way you are leaving Jacobs out of your lineup. Last week he carried the ball 33 times. Over his last three games, he has 51.3, 22, and 22.6 DraftKings fantasy points. He has seen 29 red zone looks and 48 targets for the season, and the Chargers are getting crushed all year on the ground. They are 29th in rush defense DVOA.

Jamaal Williams, Detroit Lions v Jacksonville Jaguars, $6000, PFF early draft projections, 6.1%

Williams isn’t going to get you the rushing bonus. What he will do is get you touchdowns. He has 100 rushing yards once this season, which was in Week 4. Williams leads the league in rushing touchdowns (13), and in a game where the Lions are predicted to score 24 points, Williams should be on the receiving end of at least a touchdown and 50+ yards.

Zonovan Knight, New York Jets @ Minnesota Vikings, $4600, PFF early draft projections, 2.9%

Last week with James Robinson a “healthy scratch” and Mike White stepping in at quarterback, Knight recorded 103 yards on 17 touches.

Suppose Robinson is again a scratch, and Michael Carter is out this week. In that case, Knight is worth the play against the Minnesota Vikings, who held the New England Patriots running backs in check but allowed Tony Pollard 80 rushing yards and Ezekiel Elliott 42 rushing yards and two touchdowns. This is a situation that needs to be monitored.

Also consider Austin Ekeler $8500, Nick Chubb $8100, and David Montgomery$6200

Wide Receivers

Christian Kirk, Jacksonville Jaguars @ Detroit Lions, $6300, PFF early draft projections, 6.4%

The Lions allow the second-most DraftKings Fantasy points to the wide receiver position (41.5).

The Lions are averaging 19.3 fantasy points to the slot position. Kirk has 323 snaps out of the slot (51.2% rate), and he is on the field for a 27.4% target rate and a 24.5 % target share.

Last week he was out-targeted 14-9 by Zay Jones. Jones also led the team in yards (145) and receptions (11) against the Baltimore Ravens. However, 70% of the fantasy points the Ravens allow to receivers are to receivers out wide.

This is Kirk’s week to shine.

Garrett Wilson, New York Jets @ Minnesota Vikings, $5300, PFF early draft projections, 11.8%

The Vikings allow the sixth-most DraftKings Fantasy points to the wide receiver position (40.6).

Last week Wilson’s target share rose 5% (29%) while his air yard share went up 4% (35%). He was targeted eight times for 95 yards and two touchdowns on five receptions.

George Pickens, Pittsburgh Steelers @ Atlanta Falcons, $5100, PFF early draft projections, 3.9%

The Falcons are giving up the third-most fantasy points to the wide receiver position (41.5). The Falcons generally allow 61% of their fantasy points to the receiver out wide and 38% to the slot.

Pickens aDot 15.1 and has 19 deep targets with a 27.4% air yards share. He has scored double-digit fantasy points in his last three games while averaging six targets per game.

Also consider Amon Ra St Brown $7100, Joshua Palmer $5600, Drake London $4700
