Welcome back everybody. Alex here, and I am back with my DraftKings NFL Sleeper Picks for Week 13. These are some of my favorite cheap plays of the week that should be low owned. Like every NFL week, there are injury situations that you need to monitor all the way up until Sunday. So be sure to be on Twitter all weekend and watch all the other major news outlets to see which players are active or inactive. As always if these picks help you win or if you need any advice, let me know on Twitter Hunta512 or in the comments section below.

WR: Marquess Wilson: (4,000) In only his second game of the season Wilson shined against The Titans, catching eight of 11 targets for 125 yards and a TD. Even though he didn’t lead this Bears’ WR group in snaps (58.7%), he led the team with 11 targets and showed some great chemistry with QB Matt Barkley. Wilson was clearly Barkley’s go to target especially late in the game when The Bears almost completed their come from behind win riding the two players on the final drive. With QB Jay Cutler officially done for the season, Barkley will be The Bears’ starting QB for the foreseeable future.
After Wilson’s game last week with Barkley throwing him passes it would surprise me if Wilson didn’t see his snaps increase this week vs The Niners. He should pick up right where he left off against this Niners secondary that is allowing over 49 DK points a game to opposing WRs in the last month. He has a very good chance of finding the end zone again this week with This Niners’ defense allowing a league high 1.8 TDs per game to WRs. Everything is laid out for Wilson to have another great game and he is an absolute steal at only $4,000 on Draftkings this week.
TE: Martellus Bennett: (4,800) TE Rob Gronkowski will be having surgery on his injured back and is expected to miss the rest of the 2016 season. Bennett will now play, as a featured TE in this Patriots offense, which is arguably the best unit in all of football. Two weeks ago we were in this exact same situation when The Patriots played the dreadful Niners and Bennett only caught one pass for 14 yards. This was a huge hit for DFS players that rostered Bennett in Week 11 and I think most players will still be very sour about how much money he cost them two weeks ago. But the bottom line is all the facts pointed to him being a very good play.
This season The Patriots TEs have been receiving right around 29% of team’s targets and 13.5 % of the Patriots red zone opportunities. With Gronk out of the picture Bennett has to become more involved and has too much upside to be forgotten. This is the perfect time to give him another chance this week against The Rams with The Patriots having the second highest team total of the week at 29.25 points. With Gronk out, I think most DFS players will look for other ways to get exposure to this offense which should keep his ownership somewhat low. Also his price has risen $1,400 since his Week 11 disaster which should make people skeptical about playing him. But I don’t know about you, but the idea of having The Patriots featured TE at a low ownership and at a reasonable salary in GPPs is something that I need to have a share of this week.
Kenny Stills: (3,900) WR Davante Parker hasn’t practiced all week with a back injury and seems very unlikely to play this Sunday vs The Ravens. This situation is likely to mean an increase in snaps and targets for Stills. With Parker out, there is a huge hole in this offense, with him receiving 24% of the team’s targets over the last month. This week Stills should see a few extra targets and play almost all the snaps vs The Ravens that rank 17th vs WRs this season.
It isn’t the best matchup, but the opportunities will be there for him, especially with The Dolphins being 3.5 point road underdogs. Still has always been a big play threat that can score multiple touchdowns any given week. He is so cheap that he can’t really hurt you at this price and his upside so high that he could potentially win you a GPP if he finds the end zone.
Also Consider: Chris Hogan, Kenny Britt, Kenneth Dixon, Matt Barkley, Denard Robinson, Dion Lewis, Carson Palmer, Tyrod Taylor, Marques Goodwin (if Watkins is out), Greg Olsen, and Hunter Henry.
