In the Week 13 Edition of the NFL DFS from Down Under Podcast, Dr Data joins Josh Wye to celebrate a successful Week 12 that could have been even better if Leonard Fournette didn’t get ejected for throwing a punch at a player wearing a helmet. The guys start the podcast spruiking a Week 13 slate that features half a dozen games with 50 or more expected points (according to the Vegas lines) and the variety of line up options that brings. Darryl, in particular, mentions the insane amount of options the Fantasy Insider Line-up Cruncher produced for him.
Throughout the season, the guys have talked about game script in fantasy and how it can affect your mindset in selecting certain players. If you see a certain game going one way it will suit the running backs on one team and then the receivers on the other or vice versa. This week a good example is TJ Yeldon, both Darryl & Wye have him listed as a value play this week given the game script for the Jaguars hosting the Colts. With Fournette out and the Colts likely putting up some points, the game script should suit Yeldon more with Cody Kessler at quarterback than Carlos Hyde.
Last week, both the boys had a common play at receiver in Danny Amendola. Unfortunately for Amendola (and the podcast), he sustained an injury earlier in the game and failed to give adequate return on investment. This week, both Darryl & Wye love the upside of Corey Davis against the Jets. The Titans are 7 point favourites at home and Davis has been a target machine of late and has really exploded in games that Mariota has completed from start to finish. In those games, Davis is averaging 19.3 PPR points per game.
Chase Daniel, Case Keenum, Austin Ekeler, Aaron Jones, Brandin Cooks, Adam Thielen, DaVante Parker, Eric Ebron and the Chiefs defense are all discussed at length as good or potential plays this week.
