The NFL’s Week 13 schedule features three games in which the over-under is 50 points or more. It is a common NFL DFS strategy to target players in those games where bettors expect a lot of points. That means you can expect great player exposure from the Lions vs. Jaguars, Chiefs vs. Bengals, and Raiders vs. Chargers in Sunday’s NFL DFS rosters. Which players in these games have the best NFL DFS matchups, and where else in the NFL DFS player pool can you find value? Before making any NFL DFS picks for Sunday’s slate on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out NFL DFS tips, strategy and projections from SportsLine Fantasy Daily Expert Mike McClure.
McClure is a legendary DFS professional player with over $2 million in career earnings. His methodology has led to huge wins on FanDuel and DraftKings. He won two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair of top 10s in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His rosters have also finished in the top 1% in over a dozen other tournaments.
It uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every instant NFL action, taking into account factors such as games, statistical trends, and injuries. This allows him to find the best DFS values which he only shares with SportsLine members.
This year he has already won the DraftKings Millionaire Maker twice and the FanDuel Million once. Now, McClure has turned his attention to Sunday’s NFL DFS slate and has locked down his top daily fantasy football picks. You can only see his picks and analysis on SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Week 13
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Week 13 is Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins at $7,200 on DraftKings and $8,300 on FanDuel. Higgins had 141 catches for 1,999 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first two seasons and had already established himself as one of the best young wide receivers in the NFL. However, he used a long stretch in which Ja’Marr Chase (hip) was out to further establish himself as one of the top picks in the NFL DFS.
Over the past two weeks, Higgins has caught 16 passes for 262 yards and a touchdown and he now has 57 catches for 826 yards and four scores this season. Chase could be back in the lineup this week against the Chiefs, but in a game that’s likely to be a high scorer, there should be plenty of targets to go around. Kansas City has allowed multiple receivers to double-digit NFL DFS points in four of its last six games.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy includes training Titans running back Derrick Henry at $8,100 on DraftKings and $8,800 on FanDuel. The two-time sprint champion punished defenses with his 247-pound frame for years and used the defense’s tired legs against them on long decisive runs.
Henry has averaged 5.0 yards per carry in the second half of games in his career compared to 4.5 in the first half. In November and December, he averages 5.3 yards per carry. Now he’ll have a solid matchup against an Eagles defense that ranks 23rd in yards allowed per rush and he’s expected to be in line for 20 or more touches for the 10th time in 12 games this season.
