FanDuel Week 13 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
In this space each week, I give my overall FanDuel cash game and tournament strategy thoughts and discuss how players fit into these strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process. For those new to 4for4, we use a proprietary value metric to determine the best values across all positions, rather than the flawed raw point-per-dollar value you usually find across the industry. An extension of our value metric and projections is our GPP Leverage Score, a single value that drives our decisions on which players we can be most confident using in GPPs as it relates to their expected ownership in large-field tournaments.
Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
Two big questions this week will ultimately decide who profits: Are you jamming in Christian McCaffrey? Do you still trust Lamar against the 49ers? The former will largely impact if you can even entertain the latter as McCaffrey’s price will largely limit where else you can pay up. Fading Jackson means bypassing the highest-floor play in DFS this season.
Even with the tough matchup and high price point, Lamar Jackson ($8,700) projects as the top value at his position this week. Vegas believes in this Baltimore offense, laying them six points at home with an implied point total above 26—this is only the second time this year and the first time since Week 6 that a team has been projected for more than 26 points against the 49ers. San Francisco has allowed 25 or more points just three times this season and the common thread was a mobile quarterback—twice against the Cardinals and once against the Seahawks. In fact, those are the only games where the 49ers have allowed more than 20 points. Fire up Lamar with confidence in all formats.
