Week 13 Fanduel Dolphins
Fanduel Week 13
Following some favorable matchups the past few weeks, the Dolphins now will have one of the toughest matchups as they take on the San Francisco 49ers. In the past four weeks, the 49ers have allowed 14, 16, 10, and then zero points to the Saints last week. The Dolphins have an electric offense and it will be put to the ultimate test this week. Tell us what you think of these Week 13 Fanduel picks! Dolphins Thirsty is on Twitter!
Fanduel has accounted for this tough matchup this week that the Dolphins have. Last week Tua was the fourth-most expensive QB on the slate and this week he is the eighth highest price. The 49ers allow the sixth least passing yards and the least passing touchdowns in the league so far. Tua can pick apart any defense in front of him though. Don’t be surprised if he makes for a good value at $7,800 this week on Fanduel.
For those looking for some value at quarterback on this main Sunday slate that the Dolphins are a part of, look at Jared Goff from the Detroit Lions. Goff is a near bottom salary QB in week 13 and this team is just beginning to roll offensively. This week they will get Jameson Williams the rookie in the lineup for the first time, Amon Ra St. Brown, and DJ Chark Jr. all healthy and potentially making plays downfield. On Thanksgiving Goff threw for 240 yards and two touchdowns against a tough Bills defense.
Running Backs for Fanduel Week 13
If the 49ers defense seems good against the pass, they are even better against the run. They allow the least yards per game on the ground in the entire NFL up to this point. When looking at Dolphins running backs we have to look at Jeff Wilson Jr. and also Raheem Mostert again now. Wilson has been good when he doesn’t split carries but now these two will likely share the workload against a tough team. Their Fanduel prices are down because of it but they could make for decent value plays.
Nick Chubb is $9,600 this week and for good reason. He plays against the Houston Texans, who allow the most yards on the ground this year so far. Even at that price he might be a player you have to own. A pivot off of Chubb could be playing his backup Kareem Hunt. Hunt may get a ton of work as well and is just $5,800.
Tyreek Hill remains the most expensive wide receiver on Fanduel for week 13. $9,000 is a large salary but Dolphins fans know that Hill can get over 100 yards and multiple touchdowns in any game. He is matchup-proof. His counterpart in Jaylen Waddle had more targets and the same yardage as Hill last week. Waddle comes in at just $7,900 and he is always a candidate for a huge game or to get more usage if teams try to take away Hill.
A top receiver that seems to get overlooked every week is Christian Kirk of the Jaguars. At just $7,500 he has had six games with 72 yards or more this year and also has seven touchdowns now. He is looking for a bounce-back game and plays Detroit in a great matchup.
Mike Gesicki has seemed to lose his fantasy relevance. The real value he has is catching a touchdown. If he doesn’t, he has proved to have little to no value. Last week he got one target which he failed to bring in. He can probably be left off your roster at $4,800 for week 13 on Fanduel.
For just $500 more than Gesicki, you can play arguably the Rams’ top target this week in tight end Tyler Higbee. He has managed eight targets in each of the past two weeks without Cooper Kupp. Now the Rams don’t have Allen Robinson either and are expected to be down and throwing a ton in week 13.
Anything can happen during a game that gets a defense a random touchdown. We saw it last week with Miami who had a great matchup against Houston as well. This week seems to be a tougher matchup and Miami is just $3,700. There are eight teams cheaper than them if you want a real punt play for your defense.
Baltimore’s defense may be underrated this week. They are projected to allow the least amount of points against the Broncos according to the sportsbooks. At $4,500 there are four teams more expensive than them.
