Drew Brees (QB), (DET@NO, $9,300, FPPG: 23.9):
In outstanding fashion, Drew Brees has now completed at least three TDS passes in all but four games this year for the Saints and now has the most individual player PASS TDS and PASS YDS in all of the NFL. He goes up against a Lions team next that’s allowed the 4th most PASS TDS in the NFL (tied with two other teams), that currently has one of the worst sacking defenses in the league & that’s roughly middle of the pack compared to all other NFL teams in PASS Y/A and in terms of how many INT’s their defense has collected. As you can see, this is looking to be a pretty solid matchup for Brees and even though he’s coming in at a very high price tag at the moment, he should be well worth the selection in any cash game this week.
LeSean McCoy (RB), (BUF@OAK, $8,400, FPPG: 17.5):
LeSean McCoy is coming off of a monster Week 12 performance where he finished with 134 RUSH+REC YDS and 2 TDS against the Jaguars. His opponent this week is an arguably just as bad, if not worse D versus the run than the one he just faced. The next defense he faces is the Raiders D and there’s really no reason to think that McCoy, who now averages a superb 5.2 YPC this season, can’t run wild in Week 13. He’s a somewhat costly pick right now, but he should be worth a buy in cash leagues and in most other leagues at this time.
Michael Thomas (WR), (DET@NO, $6,900, FPPG: 13.6):
Michael Thomas had a huge bounce back game last week against a tough Rams PASS/REC defense catching 9 passes for 102 YDS and 2 TDS (the last TD he scored was in Week 9 and the last contest he finished with at least 100 REC YDS was Week 7). He ideally goes up against a Detroit team next that’s allowed the 4th most REC TDS in the NFL (tied with two other teams) and that’s roughly middle of the pack compared to all other NFL teams in REC Y/A. His team’s start QB Drew Brees should be in line to have a huge performance in this one, so one comes to expect at least one of Brees’ starting receivers to blow up and have a big game as well and the receiver that looks to be poised to do just that is this one. Thomas is a viable pick to go with in any competition on FanDuel in Week 13.
Travis Kelce (TE), (KC@ATL, $6,300, FPPG: 10.5):
In his last two contests, Travis Kelce has put up impressive REC numbers: 7.5 REC/G and 104.5 REC Y/G (he also had a 12 TAR/G average in that stretch of play). He faces a Falcons team next that really has a hard time minimizing opposing teams’ REC TDS, REC YDS this year & that’s easily one of the top 10 worst teams against opposing TE’s in the NFL in terms of the amount of REC TDS and REC YDS they give up to players at that position. This is a cake matchup for a red hot TE folks, so be sure to give him a start in any league you sign up for on FanDuel right now.
