By now you should have gone through all of the NFL Week 13 DFS content, built a strong cash lineup and probably a few GPP tournament lineups as well. How do they look? Do you have the chalky free squares in your cash lineup that allow you to get guys like Tyreek Hill and Jalen Hurts in there? Are you differentiating yourself from the rest of the herd for your GPP tournaments with some strong contrarian plays? What stacks have you built around and is there enough correlation in your lineup? If you've answered no to any of these questions, you better go back over everything before looking at the Example Lineups for NFL Week 13. If you've answered yes to all of the above, let's get to it!
Just a few notes here about the lineups below...
The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.
Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.
**Be sure to check the Playbook and Dart Board for late changes
Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!

LAC/NE -- Rain looks widespread and consistent. Expect moderate rain basically all game. That will cause some issues for the offenses even with light winds.
ATL/NYJ -- Definitely still wet, though the heaviest of the rain will be clearing around kickoff. We are still dealing with fairly consistent light to moderate showers for most of the game, drying out a bit late.
ARI/PIT -- Models now have the heaviest rain north of PIT (which also reduces wind gust issues). Officially still at "a chance for a few showers, winds manageable at 10-15mph".
CAR/TB -- Chances for showers, more likely late than early. Winds not an issue, so no major impacts regardless of if they get clipped by rain or not.
As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
Chalk Stacks (Expect High Ownership):
Possible Lower-Owned Stacks:
