The Sunday kickoffs for Week 13 are almost here, and it’s time to start plotting out your Week 13 DFS lineups. In Week 12, a lot of the usual suspects dominated, but we had some under-the-radar names step up in a big way to key folks to victory.

If you find good value elsewhere in your DFS lineup, that affords you the luxury of ponying up for a premium player at a different position. If you’re able to spend a little more money on a player, who not make it the wide receiver position?

So here are three best wide receiver plays over $5,500 that could provide the best value for Week 13. Values from DraftKings.

Davante Adams (GB) - $7,700

One of the NFL’s worst defenses against the pass in the New York Giants and one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers - what more could you ask for? Davante Adams is healthy for the Green Bay Packers, and there has yet to be another receiver to step up in the passing game to be a clear #2 option at wide receiver. While that has held back the Green Bay offense, it has meant great things for Adams who is still gets force-fed targets all game.

DJ Chark (JAC) - $6,600

What’s better than facing “one of the NFL’s worst defenses against the pass?” Facing the worst defense in the NFL against the pass, and that’s exactly the matchup in store for Chark and the Jacksonville Jaguars who are scheduled to face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Each year there’s at least one player who comes out of nowhere to be a top fantasy option, and this year it’s been DJ Chark. The change back to Nick Foles hasn’t hurt Chark’s production, so he’s still a great play this week.

Tyreek Hill (KC) - $8,900

Tyreek Hill might be the most expensive wide receiver available in daily fantasy this week, but for good reason. He still has the reigning MVP at quarterback in Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Oakland Raiders and the NFL’s 3rd-worst defense against opposing wide receivers. The Raiders and Chiefs look to be in store for a shootout. Anything can happen in a divisional game, and while the overall winner of the game might be a surprise, anyone who has Hill in their DFS lineup is likely a winner in their daily fantasy lineups.
