As the 2023 NFL season enters its late stretch, a multitude of games from here on out carries substantial playoff implications. That means teams and players could be equipped for big performances to keep their teams afloat, which naturally impacts DFS players. Below are our favorite games and matchups to stack in Week 13, with a specific look at the main slate of games set for Sunday.
NFL DFS Picks: Game Stacks, Week 13
Dolphins vs. Commanders
Washington’s porous scoring offense has the combined point total set at 50 according to DraftKings Sportsbook, which is the highest on the Week 13 slate. The Commanders are allowing 29.2 PPG (32nd), which means Tagovailoa and his receiving corps should have a day at Hard Rock Stadium. Meanwhile, De’Von Achane’s status remains up in the air after being inactive for Week 12, which sets up Mostert to once again lead the backfield.
The Commanders are allowing the 12th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, setting up Mostert for a potential big day for fantasy managers.
49ers vs. Eagles
Two high-powered offenses face off in this rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game. It should come as no surprise that the point total is listed at 47 according to DraftKings Sportsbook, which is among the highest on the slate. Hurts is the frontrunner for MVP and is the engine by which the offense hums, which means the likes of Brown should have a strong day against San Francisco’s pass defense, which is allowing 223.5 yards per game through the air on the road.
Meanwhile, McCaffrey jumpstarted another touchdown streak after rushing for two scores last week, while Samuel has topped 50-plus receiving yards in back-to-back games while rushing for a score in two of his last three contests.
Broncos vs. Texans
The Broncos are winners of five straight heading into Week 13, but their defense faces a new test on the road in CJ Stroud and a young, exciting Texans offense. Houston is averaging 23.5 PPG (10th) while Stroud ranks sixth among quarterbacks in pass attempts with 391 this season. If a high-octane matchup is on deck between these teams, Dell should have another opportunity to add a potential fifth-straight game with a receiving touchdown.
