DraftKings NFL Pickem Week 13 Strategy
Using our new floor/ceiling projections, this season we will be able to simulate all of the DraftKings PickEm tiers. We’ll share the results of these simulations in a premium article for subscribers along with other ideas about attacking the PickEm slate each week.
This is my first year playing the PickEm games seriously, but Drewby outlined the reasons why you should be playing this format last season: https://dailyroto.com/nfl-dfs-strategy-draftkings-pickem/
We feel the power of rushing in fantasy football in this tier as Tom Brady (NE) has awful to win odds despite projecting for nearly 300 yards passing and 2 TDs. That’s similar to Cam Newton (CAR), but Newton’s rushing projection of 36 yards and 0.3 TDs gives him nearly triple the chance of Brady to win this tier.
It’s fine to pivot to Jared Goff (LAR) here who has almost half the expected main slate ownership as Newton, and we’re giving him a 1 in 4 chance of winning the position. If using Goff, it makes sense to layer in some correlation in other tiers (stacking with Brandin Cooks, coming back with Kenny Golladay).
