NFL DFS DraftKings GPP Picks: Week 13 (Fantasy Football)
For the purposes of this article, I’ll be highlighting plays that I believe have paths to a ceiling outcome at reduced roster percentage, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sprinkle in some cash plays into our lineup as well. For my full breakdown on DraftKings for Week 13 cash games, be sure to check out my DraftKings cash picks here.
When building your GPP lineups, be sure to reference our Roster Percentage Report as well as our DFS Rankings in order to identify plays that have a solid projection yet may be undervalued by the field. In order to compete in GPPs, we’ll want to utilize a combination of cash plays and GPP plays in order to build solid lineups without sacrificing too much in the way of projection. For more on how to use roster percentages and build strong GPP lineups, be sure to check out this episode of the DFS Podcast.

Patrick Mahomes $8,300
The MVP favorite will look to put on a show on Sunday in the game of the week against the Bengals. This game carries the slate’s highest over/under, and just a 2-point spread. It features the NFL’s #1 and #2 ranked passing offenses in terms of neutral situation pass rate, and the Chiefs lead the NFL in PROE. Moreover, the Cincy run defense has been elite with DJ Reader in the lineup, so the Chiefs should let Mahomes take over here and try to move the ball via the passing game. This game has shootout written all over it, especially given that Ja’Marr Chase is back on the other side to elevate the overall game environment. In his career, Andy Reid actually seems to #LetMahomesCook on the road even more than when playing at home. His yards per attempt climbs to 8.5 on the road vs. 7.7 at home, and his TD rate skyrockets to 7.2% in road games.
