Dr. Roto's Week 13 DFS Plays

Dr. Roto reveals his Week 13 NFL DFS Visionary Plays at each position!


Daily Dr. Roto — December 2, 2016

DFS Plays for Week 13


Drew Brees — DFS 101: Play Brees when at home in the Superdome!

Matthew Stafford — Went 22/25 last year with three TDs against the Saints. I’m not sure the Saints are better this year, so there is a great chance that Stafford produces numbers similar once again.

Colin Kaepernick — He might not throw for 296 yards and run for 113 again, but what if he goes 220 and 72? Those are still QB1 numbers.

Eli Manning — It should be a wide-open game in Pittsburgh, and the Steelers secondary is a mess. Eli goes crazy and gets 300 yards with 3 TDs.

Ben Roethlisberger — Yes, the Giants defense is improved, but they could be looking ahead to next week’s game vs. Dallas and you know that Ben is better at home. Look for him to match Eli’s 3 TDs with 3 of his own.

Russell Wilson — Seattle was embarrassed last week, and now they go home to face the despised Panthers. There is no way that Wilson doesn't throw for three TDs this week and 280+ yards.

Running Backs

Jordan Howard — I doubted him against the Titans; I won’t make that same mistake against the 49ers and their league worst run defense.

LeSean McCoy — Just gets it done each week. He costs less than Bell and Johnson, but his numbers are always there.

Melvin Gordon — This feels like a Gordon week after he has been slowed down for the past few games.

Carlos Hyde — He should be good for 20 points in a PPR against this depleted Bears defense.

Le’Veon Bell — It’s a tough matchup, but it’s hard to fade a guy who will get 25 touches. In fact, I think he will be lower owned than usual, and I might just take advantage of that.

Doug Martin — He seems to be running like his old self and the Bucs are playing inspired football.

Theo Riddick — Love him on DK with his ability to catch 7-8 passes out of the backfield. I think he finds the end zone too.

Wide Receivers

Julio Jones — The Cardinals held him down in Week 12, but he gets back on track at home vs. the Chiefs. Put him down for 150 yards and a TD.

Jarvis Landry — DeVante Parker is questionable, and Jimmy Smith is expected back — these two things open the floodgates for tons of targets to Landry. I will be all in on him on DK.

Sterling Shepard — When your QB apologizes for not getting you the football, take that as a good sign. If the Giants expect to win this game, Eli will have to find a second WR to complement OBJ. It will be Shepard.

Brandin Cooks — Cooks was pissed that he wasn’t targeted in last week’s romp over the Rams. Look for Drew Brees to correct that in Week 13. I see Cooks with 100 yards and 1 TD if not more on Sunday.

Odell Beckham Jr. — I see a high scoring affair in Steel Town, and Beckham is the Giants go to guy.

Antonio Brown — I don’t know if it’s possible, but I am going to have one team that has AB and OBJ on it to reap the benefits of this titanic battle between two of the top three receivers in the NFL.

Marquess Wilson — He's the Bears top target going up against one of the worst defenses in football. He could be a nice value to match with two expensive studs.

Marvin Jones — I think that Jones and not Tate will be the Lion to own in Week 13. It’s contrarian for sure, but if you want to win a GPP you need to go out on a limb. I do prefer Tate in cash games.

DeSean Jackson — I don’t love D-Jax but he is playing for a contract, and he is coming off a huge game vs. Dallas. Watch him make one big play in the desert.

Dontrelle Inman — With Tyrell Williams, not 100% it looks like Inman might get a bunch of targets vs. Tampa. I also like Travis Benjamin who I think will be very lightly owned.

Marqise Lee — Lee has been Bortles’ top target this year, and Allen Hurns was ruled out with a hamstring issue.

Tight Ends

Vernon Davis — You want VD this week, especially with Jordan Reed not playing.

Greg Olsen — I know that Olsen has been a disappointment recently, but I think that ends in Seattle. There is no way that the Panthers can win this game without getting Olsen involved. I will have him on a few DFS lineups.

Jimmy Graham — Wilson's going to go crazy to make up for last week's nightmare, and he should find Graham in the end zone for a TD. I might just be crazy enough to start Graham at TE and Olsen at flex in this high scoring game.

Vance McDonald — He’s Kap's favorite target right now and should come at a nice discount.

Josh Hill — The Lions struggled mightily vs. the TE. Many people will choose Fleener, but if I can get Hill at a minimum salary I might take a shot with him considering that Brees loves throwing to him in pressure situations.
