Optimal DraftKings plays for Week 13

Each week I’ll comb through the options at each position to bring you my picks for the players with the best combination of safety and upside over a wide price range. These are guys you’ll use in cash games for the most part, but there’s nothing wrong with slotting a couple into your tournament lineups as well for stability.



Cam Newton $7400: Facing the league’s best quarterback matchup in terms of fantasy points allowed, Cam Newton stands a great chance of keeping his Panthers unbeaten. His wide receiver situation isn’t great, though Mike Clay likes the CB matchup for Ted Ginn Jr. quite a bit, but he always has Greg Olsen ($6400) in his back pocket. Olsen is easily the top tight end play this week and a great pairing with Newton. Although, I think you can safely play Newton alone too, thanks to the high rushing floor and distributed passing options.

Ben Roethlisberger $6600: I think Roethlisberger might go a little bit under the radar this weekend. The Steelers and Roethlisberger can be solid gold at home and with a healthy cadre of receivers and our 24th ranked defense of the Colts, he should have no problem throwing for 300-plus yards and a few scores.
