We have an interesting slate in NFL DFS this week. There is no game projected to go over 50 points, which makes sense after digging into the slate. In a week with no truly great plays standing out, it will take an even deeper dive this week to bring you the top plays for Week 13 NFL DFS. We've got five core plays and five fades ready for you as you decide who to start and fade in tournament play. Grab your coffee, settle in, and let’s get started!
During this article you will often see references to DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average), a metric from Football Outsiders that measures a team or players efficiency by comparing results from every play to a league average based on situation and opponent. For example, if an offense runs for 4 yards on a 3rd and 3, it will be weighted and graded more favorably than if an offense runs for 4 yards on 3rd and 15. DVOA is a better way to compare team’s offenses vs opposing defenses than more traditional stats like yards gained and allowed.
