We are back and ready to grind out some more quarterbacks in this Week 13 of NFL DFS. I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving weekend and won a little extra cash for the upcoming holiday season! Now let’s get to the elephant in the room…DeshaunWatson. As many of you know he’s returning from a nearly two-year suspension to play against his former team The Houston Texans, very well orchestrated by the NFL. Take a shot on him, I totally get the whole “revenge” narrative. But I can’t pull the trigger on a quarterback who’s insanely overpriced ($6,500 DraftKings/$8,000 FanDuel) in a run-first offense that has not seen a real-time game since Week 17 of 2020. Watson does have a solid matchup on paper and could go off against Houston, but I’d rather play it safe. On that note, there are so many other ways to go at QB if you feel the same way as me for Week 13… here we go!
Check out our NFL Week 13 DFS Quarterbacks!
Patrick Mahomes ($8,300 DraftKings/$9,000 FanDuel)
Mahomes most likely had this game marked down on his calendar since the NFL released the schedule. You can bet your last dollar that he’ll be ready to even the score against a Bengals team that knocked him out of the AFC Championship last season. There will be plenty of points to put up with an implied total of 27.5 for Kansas City, keeping Mahomes a safe play at quarterback as usual.
Jalen Hurts ($8,000 DraftKings/$8,800 FanDuel)
Perhaps well on his way to becoming the 2022 NFL MVP, JalenHurts is fully unlocked and seemingly unstoppable at quarterback. His 10-1 Eagles host the Titans on Sunday, putting Hurts in the driver’s seat yet again to smash a 27th-ranked DVOA to opposing quarterbacks. Hurts is always a lock for cash and GPP tournaments.
Lamar Jackson ($7,800 DraftKings/$8,200 FanDuel)
If it were not for his legs in the second half of his last game against Jacksonville, DFS managers would be cursing out LamarJackson this week. The Broncos have been a sneaky team to run on all season, so Jackson may hit again. Although with running back J. K. Dobbins is set to return from I.R. and the minuscule amount of passing volume, keep Lamar in your GPP lineups.
Justin Herbert ($7,200 DraftKings/$8,100 FanDuel)
Are we are going to ride the hot hand of JustinHerbert this week in another juicy matchup against Vegas? Hell yeah. If you saw any of the Chargers/Cardinals game, Herbert was razor-sharp posting 29DKFantasyPoints. He’ll have another great opportunity against a trash Vegas (30th DVOA to quarterbacks) secondary in a dome game. Double down with Herbie in both your cash and GPP lineups.
Joe Burrow ($6,900 DraftKings/$8,300 FanDuel)
Burrow may go toe to toe with Mahomes this Sunday if he can get a healthy Ja’MarrChase opposite TeeHiggins against Kansas City in a rematch of the 2021 AFC Championship. Running back JoeMixon is also trending in the right direction to play, more good news for Burrow. It will be all hands on deck at kickoff hosting the best in the AFC. Burrow on the highest point total of the slate with all of his bag of tricks back on the field is a very good play this week in DFS and still too cheap on DraftKings to pass up.
Trevor Lawrence ($5,900 DraftKings/$7,500 FanDuel)
After putting up the best game in his career (321 PA YDS/3 TD) we can’t overlook Lawrence. He’s getting another opportunity to ball out in a potential track meet indoors in Detroit. The Lions continue to struggle defending quarterbacks ranking dead last in the league, forcing managers to keep Lawrence at QB again this week.
Derek Carr ($5,600 DraftKings/$7,300 FanDuel)-Has been an under the radar top 5 quarterback since Week 11. The Raiders’ defense is a hot mess forcing Carr to play catch-up every week.
Mike White ($5,400 DraftKings/$ 6,900 FanDuel)-ComingoffAn incredible performance against the lowly Bears, hasanothergreat matchup in Minnesota.
Kenny Pickett ($5,200 DraftKings/$6,700 FanDuel)-Dirt cheap facing a bottom three Falcon secondary in a dome game. He could throw 40 times due to all the injuries in the Steelers’ backfield.
Jared Goff ($5,300 DraftKings/$6,800 FanDuel)- At home in his dome, with the potential game script of a back-and-forth shoot-out against the Jags.
