What are the best FanDuel tournaments and GPPs strategies and players for optimal lineups for Week 13 of the 2018 NFL season? This piece will run through each by offering up chalk plays, contrarian plays, and stack options — all from a tournament perspective.

All projected ownership figures come from our FanDuel ownership projections data file. Looking to play cash games on FanDuel? Be sure to check out Tyler Buecher’s Week 13 FanDuel cash game guide.


Chalk: Patrick Mahomes ($9,500). Despite the absurd price tag, we still project Mahomes to be the highest-owned quarterback of the slate. Mahomes is a great play in any game environment, but you have to really like him at 14.5-point favorites in a game with the highest over/under on the slate (55.5).

Chalk: Cam Newton ($8,700). With over 23 FanDuel points in seven games this year, Newton has a high floor and an even higher ceiling. His matchup against the Buccaneers, who have given up the second-most fantasy points per dropback to quarterbacks, makes him an even easier play this week.
