Every Sunday in the weekly fantasy chats, I get asked about my favorite plays of the week or who is my player pool that weekend for DFS.
This article series covers exactly that.
I will go through the games I am targeting for stacking purposes here as well as the players I am targeting as core plays and tournament plays in other articles.
The idea is that this will paint a clearer picture of framing lineups.
Week 13 DFS Content:
For any who are new here, one of my favorite ways to play DFS from a tournament stance single-to-five-max entry games with 5K or smaller fields.
Both sites even offer these types of games with fewer than 100 entries (albeit at a higher cost of entry) if you want to go after a really small field.
In these contests, my approach is to go with full-game stacks.
You are going to lose a lot of weeks, but if you get the game right, you gain a big advantage. Just cashing in one of these over an 18-week season can make your entire year.
When doing these, I want to aggressively build around games that have a wider range of outcomes.
However, with the reduced number of entries, you can also eat some chalky game stacks because we are going further in the overall game stack than our opponents likely will.
These are the games I am circling for those tournaments in Week 13, but you can also tie these games into your stacks for other tournaments.
You can dig deeper into why I believe these games present some downside in the Worksheet, but we are solely playing for the upside outcome here in these games.
I will have some analysis on the player selections and game writeups, but check out the Week 13 Worksheet for a fully detailed breakdown of the players and games.
49ERS AT EAGLES
Both of these teams are tied for third in the league with 28.2 points scored per game.
The 49ers have scored a touchdown on 30.8% of their possessions, second in the league. The Eagles have scored a touchdown on 29.4% of their possessions, third in the league.
Philadelphia has been playing some hot games at home this season and we had another one last week against Buffalo when those teams combined for 71 points. Four consecutive Philadelphia games have gone over the game total, the longest ongoing streak in the league. Games in Philadelphia are averaging a league-high 59.4 combined points per game.
This game has a plethora of strong plays no matter which way you want to attack it.
The “cheapest” way will be through Brock Purdy and a pass catcher.
He can be stacked with any of Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, and Deebo Samuel. I prefer them in that order.
You can add another option to that build, and even Christian McCaffrey is the rare running back that can be stacked with his quarterback.
The Philadelphia side is a lot cleaner.
We know where the ball is going, so you can focus on Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, and DeVonta Smith as your core assets.
