FanDuel Daily Fantasy Football Helper: Week 13
If you've never played daily fantasy football on FanDuel before, it's time to start. Unlike traditional leagues, you're able to select the players you want on that specific day only, giving you a different squad to root for each and every week.
Here at numberFire we offer great tools for premium members. The analysis below is meant to help you understand why some of these players are top picks in our tools and projections because we don't want you going into the weekend completely blind. We want to help you. Keep in mind, however, that things can change drastically if an injury is announced, so make sure you're double checking the tools and projections as close as possible to kickoff.
Let's get to it!

This week, the future hall-of-famer draws an outstanding matchup against a Detroit Lions defense that ranks 29th in the league in schedule-adjusted Defensive Passing NEP and has allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Brees is an elite play despite his expensive price tag.
