The goal of this weekly DFS tournament picks article is to identify at least one player each week who is in the winning DraftKings Milly Maker lineup at less than 15% ownership. We had two monster hits last week with DeVante Parker and Wayne Gallman, who combined for 40.1 DraftKings points at a $10,900 salary — which is right on the 200-point pace we are chasing.
Gallman was especially important as a differentiating piece to uber-chalk Brian Hill, who cataclysmically busted with 5.5 fantasy points. This is an important learning lesson moving forward — the DFS community consistently overrates a backup running back jumping into a new starting role. Many believe they fully understand how the new touch distribution will shake out, but the reality is that this is a new and uncertain situation, and we should accept that fact. Be careful this week when considering Devontae Booker if Josh Jacobs sits out with an ankle injury.
With that, we are on to the DFS tournament picks for Week 13.
Head coach Doug Pederson should be criminally investigated for giving Miles Sanders only six carries against the Seahawks last week. But alas, we have dealt with Sanders' inexplicable usage all season. That is precisely what makes him a fantastic DFS tournament play in Week 13 with arguably the greatest running back matchup in all of fantasy football.
