Daily NFL fantasy football players should always keep a close eye on NFL DFS injuries, but there will be several in-game decisions that could have a huge impact on your Week 13 NFL DFS strategy. Justin Both Fields and Aaron Rodgers tend to play in a 1 p.m. ET kickoff between the Bears and Packers, but how does their status affect the prospects of fantasy-relevant players like David Montgomery, Chase Claypool, Aaron Jones and Christian Watson? Can you trust sick players like Travis Etienne (foot) and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) in your NFL DFS rosters? 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.

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 has been dominant the past two weeks with 16 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown. The former Clemson star is currently 10th in receiving yards (826), while his 10.2 yards per target ranks 11th among wide.
Ja’Marr Chase (hip) has a chance to return to Cincinnati’s roster this week, but he could be on a throwing count and this tandem of wide receivers have coexisted peacefully throughout the 2021 season and first two months of 2022. In what should be a high-scoring battle with the Chiefs, you can expect there to be plenty of targets to go around on Sunday. Kansas City ranks 21st in passing yards allowed and 30th in passing touchdowns allowed.
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. Opportunity is king in everyday NFL fantasy football and no one has received more hits in the first 12 weeks of the season than Henry. He had 23 more rush attempts than any other player and nine more touches than anyone.
Henry has also reached for at least 100 yards from scrimmage in eight of his last nine games, racking up for 1,219 yards and nine touchdowns in that span while throwing a touchdown pass. Henry is working on defenses with his 247-pound frame and you can expect to see him get another heavy dose on Sunday as the Titans try to keep the ball out of Philadelphia’s hands.
