Leonard Fournette turned the tables on the Colts this past week by dropping four touchdowns on them. There are some excellent values this week for running backs in DFS! Find out here as we break down the winners and losers in DFS for Week 13!
Jonathan Taylor – ($9,200 DK, $10,500 FD) – Taylor is getting closer to CMC salary every week now and with McCaffrey out for the season, Taylor may just be the new most expensive back every week through the end of the year. This week, he gets the terrible Texans who rank 23rd in giving up fantasy points to the running backs this year. Taylor has wrecked that game scenario by averaging 26.15 fantasy points per game and has been 100 percent consistent. You should definitely get him in your lineup.
Saquon Barkley – BEWARE – ($6,300 DK, $7,200 FD) – Barkley hasn’t been worth any price so far this season. If he ever gets 100 percent healthy and has a real team around him, then maybe we can trust him, but definitely not this week. He plays the Dolphins who actually ninth in giving up the fewest points to running backs so far this season. Barkley has averaged 13.13 fantasy points per game and has only been 33 percent consistent. I’m out.

Best Value – RB – Antonio Gibson – ($5,700 DK, $6,200 FD) – Gibson has been performed at the level that many had expected so far this year. But this week and beyond may be the time to roll with him. Last week, he put up 26.60 fantasy points on the Seahawks. This week, he gets the Raiders who are also bad against running backs as they rank 26th in giving up fantasy points. With that kind of output, Gibson is a bargain this week.
Best Mid-Value – RB – Cordarrelle Patterson – ($7,000 DK, $7,400 FD) – He’s a pretty fair value this week as he heads to Atlanta. The Bucs destroyed the Falcons in Week 2 and Patterson rolled up 23.90 fantasy points. The Bucs take on the Falcons again this week and should have another big day against their NFC South opponent.
Overall, this week we are seeing some potentially huge values but a few people to stay away from that we normally give a full endorsement.
