Denver is surprisingly one of the hottest teams in the NFL, riding a five-game winning streak heading into its game against Houston during the Week 13 NFL schedule. Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has not been a profitable addition to NFL DFS lineups during that stretch, though, finishing under 200 passing yards four times. He is not among the most expensive quarterbacks in the Week 13 NFL DFS player pool, while Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud comes at a higher price tag. Stroud has gone over 300 passing yards in four straight games, racking up 10 total passing touchdowns in those contests.
Finding a quarterback whose price is cheaper than his expected production is an important part of building a Week 13 NFL DFS strategy. Which signal-caller should you include in your Week 13 NFL DFS stacks? Before locking in your NFL DFS picks for Week 13 on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, you need to see what Mike McClure has to say.
McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with more than $2 million in career winnings. He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends, and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings.
He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair of top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1% in more than a dozen other tournaments. Last year, he won the DraftKings Millionaire Maker twice and the FanDuel Million once.
Top NFL DFS picks for Week 13
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Week 13 is 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey at $9,000 on DraftKings and $9,800 on FanDuel. McCaffrey went over 100 rushing yards for the fourth time this season when he racked up 114 yards and two touchdowns against Seattle in Week 12. He leads all running backs in Fantasy points this season, sitting inside the top three in carries, targets and red-zone touches at his position.
McCaffrey is the most important weapon in San Francisco’s offense, averaging 21.9 touches and 120.8 total yards per game. He is facing a Philadelphia defense that has allowed the fifth-highest yards per carry to zone runs since Week 7. This should be another explosive game for McCaffrey, who is a must-back in NFL DFS contests this week.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Colts running back Zack Moss at $4,600 on DraftKings and $5,600 on FanDuel. Jonathan Taylor had thumb surgery on Wednesday and is expected to be out two to three weeks, thrusting Moss back into a starting role. Moss was Indy’s top RB from Weeks 2 to 5 while Taylor was on IR and being eased back into the lineup. During that four-week period, Moss averaged 129.3 scrimmage yards, scored four touchdowns, and produced the fourth-most Fantasy points amongst running backs.
One of those games was against Tennessee in Week 5, in which Moss set or tied career-highs in rushing yards (165), scrimmage yards (195) and touchdowns (two). That game started the downfall of the Titans’ run defense, as they gave up just 70 rushing yards per game over their first four, but have allowed 134.1 rushing yards over their last seven games. Moss is well-rested after just 18 total touches over his last three games, so Indianapolis won’t hesitate to feed him against a suspect run defense.
