Primetime DFS Slate Breakdown: Week 13

We have two great games for the Primetime slate in Week 13 with the 10-1 New England Patriots visiting the 7-4 Houston Texans on Sunday Night. The finale for the week sees the 8-3 Minnesota Vikings travel to Seattle to face the 9-2 Seahawks. There are plenty of superstar players to choose from including the likes of Russell Wilson, Dalvin Cook, and DeAndre Hopkins. We examine the Primetime slate on FanDuel and DraftKings to help you find the winning edge for your DFS lineups.

Let's get to the break down of the slate.


  • No notable injuries for Houston Texans
  • New England has 17 players listed on the injury report due to a flu bug going around. All are expected to play with Mohamed Sanu being the only true game-time decision.
  • Adam Thielen, WR, MIN - Questionable
  • Luke Willson, TE, SEA - Questionable

There are a lot of names on the injury report for the Patriots, but only Mohamed Sanu is a true question mark and he's a game-time decision that merits watching. He's in play if he suits up and his absence opens up viability for the likes of Phillip Dorsett and N'Keal Harry. Adam Thielen looks as if he is on track to play, but the 4for4 projections currently don't have him projected. If he plays, he's a near must play against the Seahawks and his presence is a hit to the value of Stefon Diggs and Olabisi Johnson. Even though the projections don't have him in play, he's very much a consideration so keep an eye on the Monday Night news prior to finalizing your roster (and a play I'd like to make is to have Thielen in the flex, which will allow you to swap to a multitude of options if he is ruled out).

Author's Note - Thielen has been ruled out for the MNF game.
