Last week’s Luck-Hilton stack came through for 51.12 points. Nick Chubb’s workhorse usage continued and he punched in 2 TDs to finish with 27.80 points. Matt Breida made it back-to-back 100+ rushing yard games on his way to 20 points. Adam Humphries had a very Humphries-ish 6 receptions for 54 yards and a TD for 17.40 points. Unfortunately, Alshon Jeffery and Greg Olsen combined for 5 catches and 50 yards. James Conner had a TD-less 95 total yards and a fumble and ended with a disappointing 12.50 points. The Texans rounded out the lineup with a solid 9 points thanks to 6 sacks.

All in all, 147.82 points is a solid total, but we’re searching for a lottery ticket lineup.

On to Week 13.

QB Jameis Winston vs. CAR

Unlike my Jordan Howard-Bears D stacks and RSJ plays, I can’t kick my Tampa Bay QB habit. Jameis Winston has been good in his return the lineup, completing 75 percent of his passes and avoiding any turnovers in his 312-passing yard, 2 TD performance. He also has some rushing value, averaging 25 yards per game on the ground this season. His Week 13 opponent gives up the 6th most fantasy points per game to QBs. Sure, there’s always the chance he turns it over 3 times and gets benched but hey, we don’t play scared here.

DraftKings salary: 6,000

RB James Conner vs. LAC

Conner let us down last week but I’m going back to the well. The carries and rushing production haven’t been where we want but he has been active in the pass game. Now he gets a Chargers team that gives up the 3rd most receiving yards per game to RBs (61.82). Coming off two subpar performances, I fully expect the Steelers to try to get back to a more balanced attack.

DraftKings salary: 7,300

RB Aaron Jones vs. ARI

If you play the Cardinals, your RB will score a rushing touchdown. Jones retained feature back usage with touches and the matchup couldn’t get any better. With Jimmy Graham limited and a murky WR situation, the Packers could lean more on their running game in scoring position. We could be a looking at a multiple-TD game.

DraftKings salary: 6,700

WR Odell Beckham Jr. vs. CHI

Going up against a stout run defense should create a dew more opportunities for the always dangerous OBJ. Beckham’s best games this season have come in spots where the defense was able to slow Saquon Barkley on the ground (16 catches 279 yards combined in weeks 7 and 8). He’s a lock for 8 to 10 targets in any matchup but if that number moves closer to 15, you’d be a fool not to bet on his talent.

DraftKings salary: 7,800

WR Corey Davis @TEN

The lone true threat in the Titans offense, Corey Davis has had some up and down weeks but you can rest assured the opportunities will be there each game. His talent at this price point stands out on the slate, especially against a Jets team giving up the 11th most fantasy points to receivers. Davis is one of my favorite receivers in this range and overall.

DraftKings salary: 5,500

WR Chris Godwin vs. CAR

The Desean Jackson injury news opened up a cheap, high upside stack. The Panthers outside corner depth was exposed last week when Corn Elder was picked on by Russell Wilson. Promising rookie corner Donte Jackson should be back in the lineup but if he were to go down at any point this matchup gets even better. You simply don’t get this kind of upside at 3,900 very often. Take advantage of Chris Godwin.

DraftKings salary: 3,900

TE David Njoku @HOU

Considering the price, David Njoku is one of the very best values in Week 13. The Texans stout run defense will no doubt raise his routes run compared to last week. It also doesn’t hurt that Houston gives up the 8th most points per game to TEs in a game that could be a potential high-scoring affair.

DraftKings salary: 4,300

Flex Phillip Lindsay @CIN

Phillip Lindsay is entering a killer spot. The Bengals have went full sieve on defense, getting gashed in the run game and through the air. With no Andy Dalton and injuries on the offensive line, this is one of the lone games the Broncos could actually control. Lindsay is electric with the ball in his hands and he might have 25 or so chances on Sunday.

DraftKings salary: 5,400

Defense LA Rams @DET

The Lions offense is #notgood. The Rams will likely be playing from ahead with a fearsome pass rush and standout corner Aqib Talib returning. That’s really all you need.

DraftKings salary: 2,600
