Week 13 of the NFL season is here, and that means that so is another Super 15 slate on SuperDraft DFS.
Similar to the posts you’ve seen on social media regarding building a roster based on a $15 budget and allotted players/prices, you can now integrate this game into DFS and go head-to-head with your competition.
Below are my top three options to build your Super 15 lineups around.
Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts ($5)
Taylor doesn’t need much analysis or justification, as he’s the hottest player in fantasy football. He’s totaled at least 90 yards (rushing plus receiving) and a touchdown in every game since Week 4 and now takes on a Texans team that he averaged 10.36 yards per carry against in Week 6.
The Texans are the cream of the crop in terms of matchups for running backs, having allowed the second-most rushing touchdowns (17), the second-most total rushing yards (1,492) and the fifth-most yards after contact. Taylor is the top overall player this week, regardless of position. Fire him up with confidence.
Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($3)
After an absolute dude against an exploitable secondary in Week 12, Week 13 presents a perfect opportunity for the Tampa Bay offense to bounce back.
The Falcons rank in the bottom half of the NFL in completion percentage allowed (68.6%), yards-per-attempt (7.18), and receiving touchdowns (21), making Godwin a very strong play off of the bat. A matchup with Richie Grant only furthers the appeal of this matchup, as he’s allowed an 82% catch rate and 0.29 fantasy points per route on the season.
Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco 49ers ($2)
Perhaps my favorite play of the entire weekend, Mitchell has operated as the bona fide workhorse in the Niners backfield, playing at least 66% of the snaps in two of his last three games and logging 27 and 32 touches over his last two games. The workload mirrors that of a $5 running back, but you’re getting a $3 discount.
No team has been run on more than the Seahawks (350 times this season) and only the Eagles have run more this season than the Niners (48.6% of plays), making Mitchell a stone-cold lock in my SuperDraft Super 15 lineups Sunday.
Budget remaining after the core: $5
