How is that roster construction going for your NFL Week 13 DFS lineups? I warned you in the NFL DFS Playbook that we were short on value plays and DFS bargains this week, so that's probably why you're over here. Now, normally I would say that you should leave players in the DFS Dart Board for GPP lineups only, but I might have a player or two here this week who could be cash-game viable. I really don't want to use some of these guys in cash, but I get that some of you are still looking for a discounted punt-play with a high enough floor to squeeze into those cash lineups as well. Kind of like what we did with Jon Impemba's boy Kendall Hinton last week – forgo one spot in the cash lineup in order to get some better players in there. I get it. I don't love it, but I know as well as anyone that sometimes you have to make certain adjustments and given the way this slate is set up this week, we just might have to. 



Welcome to the DFS Dart Board for NFL Week 13!

If you're new to Fantasy Alarm, the DFS Dart Board is an add-on to the Playbook that I started a few years ago. It came about when I was building GPP lineups and realized I needed more salary relief. As I dug through my notes to see who stood out the most among those players at a more affordable price, it hit me. When I put players in the Playbook, I am thinking primarily about cash lineup plays -- guys with a high floor who I could conceivably put into my core-group and build a lineup around. After those players, I would mix in a handful of guys who had boatloads of upside and were in soft match-ups, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to their salary as I should have. And that's where the Dart Board came into play.

Every now and then, when building lineups while using particular stacks, you need some salary relief. You need a guy who may not be minimally priced, but low enough to give you the flexibility you need to get someone like Justin Jefferson or Austin Ekeler in as a flex play or something. Occasionally you may see a min-priced QB or TE in here, but more often than not, this space is reserved for running backs and wide receivers who are below $6,000 on FanDuel or $5,000 or lower on DraftKings.

Now while we call this a Dart Board, keep in mind that every player has been carefully researched. We're not up here picking players all willy-nilly, desperately hoping they hit. We're looking for the cheapest bargains possible who still have the strongest potential to give you at least a 3-5x return on what you pay.

All set? Great. Let's get to it and while you do, maybe give a listen to this week's NFL DFS Podcast with me & Jon Impemba
