Here are the Positional Rankings from for your NFL DFS Week 13 Lineups.



NFL DFS Week 13



Taking our match-up tool, we compiled all of the stats you need for this 3 game slate. I’ve filtered this by defenses giving up the most amount of fantasy points. As you can see, the Falcons give up an average of 21.33 FP to the QB position and that brings us Drew Brees this week. This is the same match-up we had 3 weeks ago when the Falcons upset Drew Brees.



Drew Brees Week 10 vs Falcons D-  32/45, 287 Yards, no TDs. This game was an outlier and I 100% believe that Brees and the Saints will steamroll Matt Ryan and the Falcons on Thanksgiving.

Matt Ryan Week 10 vs Saints D- 20/35, 182 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT



This Falcons/Saints game has the highest O/U on Turkey Day at 49.  I’ll be looking to fit in Brees/Thomas/Kamara/Lat Murray in a few lineups. Even though the Bills are giving up the least amount of FP to QBs out of these teams, Dak is having an MVP-type year and has the weapons around him that he could be in store for a great Thanksgiving as well. The only QB I don’t think I’ll have any exposure to is Jeff Driskel.

Running Backs


The Lions are terrible against the run, as you can see with them giving up nearly 27 FP to RBs per game. The problem here? The Bears don’t utilize Montgomery like they should. He’s going to cost you less than both Zeke and Kamara and could be that X Factor in your NFL DFS Lineups. Still not sold on Bo Scarbrough as he bit a lot of people in the ass last week as he was too cheap to not take, and then did nothing for us. Devonta Freeman should be back this week so that relegates Hill to pretty much untouchable. I think of this list, the only RBs I wouldn’t have exposure to are Scarbrough and Hill.


Wide Receivers



The Falcons giving up the most amount of FP and Michael Thomas is going against them? LOCK OF THE WEEK. Want to get creative? Make multiple lineups with Ginn and Smith as well just in case. Julio Jones is Questionable and wouldn’t be surprised if he is out this week. I’m loading up Ridley in my lineups, I think people will see how Amari Cooper was held without a catch last week and shy away, but he’s going to be hungry and feast on T-Day. The only WR corps I’m a little scared to use would be the Bears as Trubisky has been so up and down it’s hard to even want to consider him with your money.


Tight Ends


Tight End can go either way this week. The Bears give up the most FP but TJ Hockenson has been a disappointment in almost every week besides Week 1. Jared Cook absolutely dominated last week. He has so many targets and big catches that there’s no way I won’t be using him this week. Not really sure about anyone else as a TE on this small slate. I can’t trust Graham or Witten. I could see you going with Dawson Knox, but only if you’re putting Josh Allen as a QB in one of your lineups.

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
