NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks for Week 13 (Fantasy Football)
Each week I’ll highlight my favorite GPP picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools. For more on GPP strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS GPP Overview episode. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Selecting QBs for GPPs is about finding stacking partners that also give you leverage on the field. Remember QB roster percentages are relatively flat. Nevertheless, refer to the FanDuel cash game picks and then add these guys in the mix of players who are contrarian.
Justin Herbert @ CIN- $8,200
I love me some Big Herbs and he’s starting to put it together rushing for 120+ yards the last two weeks. The game environment sets him up to throw and on the season Herbert is averaging the 8th highest EPA per pass attempt, the 6th most passing yards, and the 2nd highest pass rate. The Chargers will be throwing and with the Bengals defense allowing the 3rd highest clean pocket rate, Herbert should be upright long enough to make big plays happen. The ceiling is 30+ fantasy points which is few and far between on this slate.
