Week 13 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet
Welcome back! We are coming down the home stretch of the season, so only a few more cracks at the NFL season. If you’re in a season long format, this might be the last week of the regular season (it is for me!). As usual, this is based on DraftKings pricing. Leave me a comment or tweet me with any questions or comments! Good luck!
Redskins @ Colts (o/u 5.5)
Washington Redskins (+10)
Colt McCoy ($5000)
A min-priced starting QB in the NFL is difficult to pass up. There is very little sample sizeto help determine what to expect from McCoy in this game. This could very easily be a rallying point around the Redskins locker room and add a little extra something against the Colts. The Indy defense has been less than stellar, surrendering 321 passing yards per game over the last four and that includes a 146 yard performance from the Jaguars.
Alfred Morris ($5500 – RB13)
Morris continues to be under-priced, under-owned, and under-appreciated. This workhorse has quietly averaged 19.65 DK Pts the past four weeks, finding the endzone on four separate occasions. Now he gets the face the 5th worst rush defense in the league who surrendered 199 yards to Jonas Gray just two weeks ago.
DeSean Jackson ($5900 – WR17)
D-Jax has had a few unproductive weeks in a row, but I am expecting a bounce back this week. Again, the sample is small, but in the 1.5 games with Colt McCoy at the helm, Jackson has 9 catches for 185 yards. 9 grabs is just one less than the 10 Jackson has had in the last three weeks with RG3 under center.
Indianapolis Colts (-10)
Andrew Luck ($9700 – QB1)
The Redskins give up the 3rd most fpts to opposing QBs and I expect Andrew Luck to get back on track after a subpar outing in week 11. His price concerns me however, since there are many value options at QB this week. I am in favor of fading Luck.
T.Y. Hilton ($8100 – WR7)
Hilton should be the beneficiary of a terrible Washington secondary. I’ve written before how much better he is at home than on the road. He is always a big play threat and I will try to squeeze him into any many lineups as possible.
Dan Herron ($5000 – RB20)
The Colts RB situation isn’t great, but if you need to squeeze one in, “Boom” Herron is the guy you want. Technically, he was the starter last week against Jacksonville over Trent Richardson. He ran the ball very effectively (12-65) and showed that he can catch the ball as well (5-31). Continue reading
