Recommended Lineup Week 13 All lineups are based off of a $1,000,000 salary cap featured at Daily Joust, you best option in daily fantasy sports gaming. Lineups consist of a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker and one team defense. Teams are created for the King Arthur's Free For All including all Sunday games. QB: Peyton Manning (DEN) vs. TB--$210,000--The matchup couldn't get much easier for Peyton Manning going up against the Buccaneers, who have given up nine passing touchdowns over their last four games. The price tag is really high, but it will be well worth it considering the high volume of pass attempts Manning has grown accustomed to throwing. RB: Bryce Brown (PHI) @ DAL--$129,000--After a breakout performance on Monday night, Bryce Brown has now become a solid start in daily fantasy football. The Cowboys have allowed back-to-back 100-yard rushers in their last two games and have allowed at least one touchdown to opposing running backs in six of their last seven games, making Brown a good start for this week. RB: Ben Tate (HOU) @ TEN--$63,000--After fully participating in practice this week, Ben Tate is in line to play in his first game sine Week 7. He will enter the game as Arian Foster's backup, but prior to his injury he was receiving enough carries to make him worth starting in daily fantasy leagues, especially if you consider this week's matchup with the Titans. WR: Demaryius Thomas (DEN) vs. TB--$157,000--Considering the fact that I am rostering Peyton Manning this week, I decided to roll with his No. 1 target in Demaryius Thomas. The Buccaneers have given up the most fantasy points-per-game to opposing wide receivers through the first 12 weeks, so their is a good chance Thomas has yet another big day. WR: Ryan Broyles (DET) vs. IND--$92,000--With Titus Young out last week due to disciplinary reason, Ryan Broyles stepped up in a big way finishing with six receptions on 12 targets for 126 yards. Although Young is back with the team, there is a good chance that he will be inactive after acting out at yesterday's press conference, so if that the case, Broyles will likely outperform his current price tag. WR: Andrew Hawkins (CIN) @ SD--$66,000--The Bengals were without the services of Andrew Hawkins last week, but he is back and fully healthy for Week 13. Teammate Mohamed Sanu has been ruled out for Sunday's game with the Chargers, so Hawkins will resume his role as the team's No. 2 option behind A.J. Green, which should pay dividends against a bad Chargers secondary. TE: Owen Daniels (HOU) @ TEN--$110,000--This week, Owen Daniels comes in as my top tight end play in daily fantasy football. In Week 4, the Titans gave up 11 receptions for 108 yards and two touchdowns to the Texans tight ends, and they haven't got much better since, so Daniels is in line for a big day come Sunday. K: Sebastian Janikowski vs. CLE--$83,000--The kicker position is always the last spot I fill when constructing my daily fantasy roster, and this week I was able to select Sebastian Janikowski. There shouldn't be too much defense played in this matchup, which leads me to believe Janikowski will get plenty of opportunities to score. DEF: New York Jets vs. ARI--$89,000--With the Cardinals starting  rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley, the Jets defense could regain some of its value that was lost after a horrible start to the season. Lindley has recorded five turnovers in his last two games and three of those turnovers were returned for touchdowns, so there is a good chance the Jets give owners a good return on investment. Total Salary: $999,000 Value Picks for Week 13 Quarterbacks Chad Henne (JAC)--$161,000--The Bills defense has been playing better as of late, but they have still allowed the eighth most fantasy points-per-game to opposing quarterbacks, so worth a shot. Jake Locker (TEN)--$159,000--The Texans have allowed six touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks over their last two games and considering the Titans will likely be down early, Jake Locker will have plenty of chances to pile up the points. Running Backs Shane Vereen (NE)--$109,000--The Dolphins have been good against the run this season, but Shane Vereen's value may be in the passing game, so worth a shot with the Patriots likely passing a lot in this matchup. Jonathan Dwyer (PIT)--$58,000--I don't particularly like the matchup, considering Ben Roethlisberger has been ruled out, but he is going to get the carries, so start if desperate. Wide Receivers Stevie Johnson (BUF)--$104,000--Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has proven his love for Stevie Johnson in the Bills passing game this season, and this is a cupcake matchup for the two. Greg Jennings (GB)--$85,000--The Packers will be with the services of Greg Jennings for the first time since Week 4, so his current price is well below what he should actually return, so start if needed. Tight Ends Brandon Pettigrew (DET)--$67,000--Matthew Stafford continues to target Brandon Pettigrew heavily in the Lions passing game and this week gets a good matchup against the Colts. Joel Dreessen (DEN)--$53,000--The Buccaneers defense is bad, so anyone is a good option for the Broncos this week. Kickers Robbie Gould (CHI)--$81,000 Greg Zuerlein (STL)–$73,000 Defense Cleveland Browns–$94,000 Pittsburgh Steelers–$74,000 To make setting your Fantasy Football lineup easy, be sure to utilize’s new NFL Lineup Grids.
