Daily fantasy sports are all about finding value.
Last week was a solid one for our DraftKings value picks, with Baker Mayfield finishing the week as a top-five quarterback and wide receivers Robby Anderson and Tyler Boyd both going off for big days.
This week, we’re back at it again, diving deep into the DraftKings player pool to find players that might be undervalued and can help you fill out your lineup when you feel the need to overspend at other positions.
Take a look below for our best value picks for your Week 13 DraftKings lineups.
QB: Carson Wentz, $5,800
Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense haven’t been impressive in recent weeks, but a game against the Miami defense should do wonders to jump-start their scoring. Wentz has been without some of his top weapons the past few games but is expecting receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor back in the starting lineup on Sunday.
RB: Phillip Lindsay, $5,000
The first time the Broncos faced off against the Chargers this season, Phillip Lindsay went off for 114 yards and a touchdown on just 15 carries.
At his price this week, he’s a good bet to hope for a repeat performance.
RB: Nyheim Hines, $4,200
Last week we got the first look of the Colts without running back Marlon Mack. While Jonathan Williams got the lion’s share of the carries, Nyheim Hines got a season-high nine rushing attempts and is more of a threat in the Indianapolis passing game as well.
If you’re in the market for a budget running back, you could do worse.
WR: Alshon Jeffery, $5,100
It’s tough to trust a player in his first game back from injury, but in daily fantasy, it’s usually your best chance at getting a superstar at a reasonable price. If Jeffery can go, he’s a threat to pop off for a big day against a Miami defense that has allowed an opposing receiver to clear 135 yards in two straight games.
WR: Chris Conley, $4,500
Chris Conley has been a hit-or-miss fantasy player this season, but I’m still holding out for Nick Foles’ breakout game since returning from injury, and it feels like going against a Buccaneers passing defense that’s ranked 31st in the league should help him greatly.

WR: Alex Erickson, $4,000
Last week we won the Bengals wide receiver lottery when our pick Tyler Boyd went off for five receptions, 101 yards, and a touchdown.
This Sunday, with Andy Dalton back under center for Cincinnati, we’re going to back Alex Erickson as the Bengals receiver worth starting.
TE: Ryan Griffin, $4,300
Ryan Griffin has scored in two straight weeks. This week, the Jets play the winless Bengals.
It’s a tough week for truly cheap tight ends, and it might be a position worth splurging on come Sunday. But if you can’t afford a top-tier player, Griffin is at least a solid bet to score.
DEF: Cleveland Browns, $2,600
The Cleveland Browns might be down Myles Garrett, but facing a Steelers offense that has looked stale for a few weeks now and is backing Devlin “Duck” Hodges at quarterback this weekend, their defense is still a solid play this week.
