MINNEAPOLIS, Mn. —With Week 13 of the NFL season on the horizon, those that partake in daily fantasy football can begin setting their lineups for the main slate tournaments that DraftKings has to offer.

DraftKings offers tons of different daily fantasy football tournaments for the main slate of Sunday football. These tournaments allow GM’s to create full lineups. That being said, there are tons of value players available to choose from.

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins has been red hot in his last two games where he has gone for over 300 passing yards and three touchdowns in each game and has scored 27 or more points in both games as well.

Cousins is being set up for another explosive game here in Week 13 as he has a favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars defense that is ranked way down at 29 in the league against opposing quarterbacks.

In fact, they are fresh off of a Week 12 game where they allowed Baker Mayfield to go for 258 yards and two touchdowns. With that said, Cousins would offer great upside as he has the possibility to be low owned.

Alvin Kamara

Alvin Kamara has had himself a forgetful last two weeks with Taysom Hill under center, but he has a get right game here in Week 13 against a weaker Atlanta Falcons secondary. The Falcons are seen as the number 23 defense in the league against the run and 30 against the pass.

Kamara has the ability to go out for passes being that he is arguably the best pass-catching back in the league so the fact that they have a weak defense all around could boost his value this week.

Chris Carson

Chris Carson returned from a four-game absence in Week 12 and got back right where he left off having gone for 41 rush yards, a rushing touchdown and 18 receiving yards for 13.9 points. Carson could be in line for a similar if not better game here in Week 13 as he has a date with the New York Giants’ 25th ranked run defense.

Something to keep note of here is that the last time Carson went up against a run defense ranked in the 20s, he went for 16.9 points as he put up 52 rush yards, a touchdown and six receptions for 27 receiving yards.

Justin Jefferson

Justin Jefferson has earned the utmost respect around the league as he has shown that he has the capability to be an explosive receiver. Especially in his last three games where he has gone for double-digit fantasy points. With or without Adam Thielen lining up right next to him, Jefferson has marked himself as an explosive wideout having logged 135 yards, 86 yards, and a touchdown, and 70 yards and two touchdowns in his last three games.

Along with being explosive, he has a very nice matchup with the 26 ranked Jacksonville Jaguars defense that is coming off of a game where they allowed Jarvis Landry to go for 146 yards and a touchdown. That being said, Jefferson should be a must roster and if possible, bettors should be taking his over for yard totals on legal sports betting sites.

Allen Robinson

Allen Robinson is clearly one of the only bright spots on this Chicago Bears offense and has been able to shine no matter who is lining up under center. He is coming off of a spectacular performance where he saw 13 targets for 8 receptions, 74 yards and two touchdowns in which he put up 27.4 fantasy points.

Robinson is going into this game with a nice matchup against the Detroit Lions who rank 27 against opposing wide receivers. Robinson had a nice outing against the Lions earlier in the season where he went for 74 yards and 12.3 points.

Mike Gesicki

At a tight end position that has been very thin this season, Mike Gesicki has been able to maintain himself as one of the better tight ends in the league. In his last four games, he has put up 35 yards or more in each of those games. In his last game specifically, he went for 35 yards and a touchdown which was good for 11.5 points.

He has a very nice matchup in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals who are ranked dead last in the league when it comes to defending opposing tight ends and just allowed Evan Engram to go for 129 yards.

Keke Coutee

With Will Fuller now out for the remainder of the season due to suspension, Keke Coutee has now made his way up on the depth chart as the Texans’ new WR2 behind Brandin Cooks. Coutee has seen a modest four and three targets in his last two games but is certain to see a major boost now without Fuller.

Something else to note is that Randall Cobb is still on IR which leaves Cooks and Coutee as the only reliable pass-catching options for Deshaun Watson.
