Thursday night’s football game of Week 13 features the Cowboys and Saints. Both teams just emerged from Thanksgiving losses and are riding multi-game losing streaks. The loss has only been two games for the Cowboys, but the Saints have lost four straight. This one-game FanDuel lineup will feature none of the top running backs even though Alvin Kamara appears to be trending in the direction of a comeback and Jerry Jones has said Dallas won’t ease the workload on Ezekiel Elliott. DFS prices are too high to invest in backs that might not receive your typical workloads.
Here are the key scoring settings for single-game FanDuel contests: Total points for “MVP” are multiplied by 1.5, but it does not cost additional money as “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. The default FanDuel score is Semicircular PPR and Four-point pass TD, and here they are no bonuses for 100/300 yard games like in DraftKings.

FanDuel Single Game DFS Picks: Cowboys vs. Saints
$ 60,000 budget, needs at least one player from each team
MVP: (1.5x points) QB Dak Prescott, Cowboys ($ 16,500)
There have been a couple of casualties for Prescott this season, but he has remained productive overall. Scored 25.3 FanDuel points on Thanksgiving, the second time in three games eclipsing 25 points. The Saints have a tough defense, but Prescott has another solid performance at hand, especially if the Cowboys relax on Ezekiel Elliott (knee) even a little bit.

FLEX: WR CeeDee Lamb, jeans ($ 13,000)
Lamb tends to be active on Thursday after missing Thanksgiving with a concussion. With Amari Cooper engaged, or completely inactive due to COVID, Lamb will serve as the clear number one receiver for the Cowboys. You’ll likely see the Saints’ secondary primary coverage for most of the night, but he’s hung up a large number of tough defenses this season, so we’re excited about what a higher target percentage should be.

FLEX: WR Michael Gallup, Cowboys ($ 10,500)
Gallup did very well as the Cowboys’ No. 1 receiver on Thanksgiving, but we like him better in a supporting role. That’s the role he will play Thursday and Lamb is expected to return to action. However, it looks like Cooper will be well below 100 percent, so Gallup’s “leftover plate” should have a lot of meat.
WEEK 13 DFS: Best values | Best Stacks | Lineup Creator
FLEX: TE Dalton Schultz, Cowboys ($ 9,500)
Schultz had double-digit FD points thanks to a touchdown in last week’s loss to the Raiders. Schultz’s effort marked his first time in double figures since Week 6, and with the status of some of the individuals on offense, namely Elliott and Cooper, Schultz could get another multi-game streak of scoring more than 10 points. of fantasy.
WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker
FLEX WR Marquez Callaway, Saints ($ 8,500)
We are required to include at least one Saint in this lineup, so we’re going to target the fences. Callaway leads the Saints in goals, is averaging 14.7 yards per grip and has scored six touchdowns. Las Vegas sportsbooks don’t love the Saints’ chances, they’re scoring points as local underdogs, so we’re looking for a big play or two rather than trying to pinpoint someone with sustained success Thursday night.
