Arizona Cardinals DFS Spin
Trey McBride (groin) is questionable for Week 13 against the Steelers. McBride closed out the week with limited practices on back-to-back days and should be good to go against the Steelers. The second-year tight end has quickly become one of the best tight ends in fantasy, posting TE1 finishes in five of his last seven games. Those who have him should be slotting him into their lineups on Sunday against the Steelers.
Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin
Diontae Johnson (illness) did not practice Thursday. Johnson was reportedly at practice but then sent home with said illness. Assuming it’s nothing too serious, we’d expect Johnson to be ready to go for Week 13 against the Cardinals. In his first game sans Matt Canada, Johnson caught four passes for 50 yards on eight targets while narrowly missing a touchdown. He’ll be a top-24 fantasy play against the Cardinals if he’s able to go.

Cardinals vs. Steelers Prediction:
Take Arizona. With their offense, the Steelers shouldn’t be laying 6.5 points to anyone right now. After watching the Rams run all over Arizona’s defense last week, perhaps the notion is that the Steelers will do the same today. That said, the Steelers own one of the least effective and efficient offenses in the league. The only reason they’re 7-4 is because their defense keeps the team in every game. Assuming the Cardinals fix some of their run defense issues, Kyler Murray should make enough plays today to keep Arizona within the number.
Cardinals vs. Steelers NFL Prediction: ARIZONA CARDINALS +6.5
