Week 13 of Daily Fantasy Football is here and last week was Thanksgiving. A lot of people had a lot to be thankful for in Daily Fantasy Football with some big-time performances on Thanksgiving and this past Sunday. Guys like Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson accounted for eight touchdowns and then to have low-priced back-up back-up running backs like Spencer Ware and Javorius Allen come in and have nice games had to help someone win big money this past weekend. It’s all about the value and that’s the biggest thing you need to win big tournaments in Daily Fantasy Football.

Let’s get to this week’s value picks at wide receiver. Go to for all of our great value picks at the key positions in football.

Week 13 Daily Fantasy Football Wide Receivers

3 Value Wide Receivers

Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh Steelers vs Indianapolis Colts ($6,900)

Bryant has a great match-up this week vs the Indianapolis Colts defense. Markus Wheaton is coming off a huge performance last week which could drive Bryant’s ownership down this week. Heath Miller left last week’s game and could miss this week leaving more targets available for Bryant. Now I know Ben Roethlisberger is in the concussion protocol but I still like Bryant even if backup QB Landry Jones plays this week.

Danny Amendola, New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles ($6,700)

Amendola is still banged up but if he can play this Sunday I really like his chances to have a nice game. Edelman is out, Gronk is hurt and should miss this week’s game and LaFell has a tough match-up which could mean a lot of targets for Amendola. Amendola had two nice games before getting hurt and missing last week’s game vs the Broncos. So look for Brady to exploit the Eagles secondary and hit Amendola for a lot of short receptions in the passing game. If Amendola can find the end zone that would easily allow him to make value and 3x value could be in reach this week for him.

Ted Ginn, Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints ($5,800)

This is a boom-or-bust tournament play that could be very low-owned because of the emergence of Devin Funchess the last few weeks. Cam Newton is playing like an MVP and has one of the best matchups with the Saints coming to town. Newton could hit Ginn for long pass plays that could lead to touchdowns, not to mention Ginn’s play on special teams. A 60 yard, two-TD performance is a possibility and one I will be looking to cash in on.

3 Wide Receivers to Avoid

Brandin Cooks, Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints ($7,100)

Two words: Josh Norman. Norman is possibly playing like the best cornerback in the game right now and should be following Cooks around the field. The Saints playing at home could help, but this offense is struggling right now. It is time to avoid Cooks and the Saints offense in general.

Pivot to Amari Cooper ($7,000)

Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles @ New England Patriots ($6,200)

I can’t believe what Matthews season has turned into and boy has it been ugly. This week Mr. Matthews gets to face off against Malcolm Butler and Bill Belichick who will focus on taking Matthews out of the game like he does with most of the opponents top weapons when facing the Patriots defense. It would not shock me if Matthews gets completely shut out in this game and does a ZERO.

Pivot to Vincent Jackson ($6,300)

Tavon Austin, St Louis Rams vs Arizona Cardinals ($6,100)

This is another game that could get very ugly. The Cardinals were clearly looking past the 49ers last week and were focusing on avenging a home loss to the St. Louis Rams. Patrick Peterson should be covering Austin most of this game and that’s not good for Austin as Peterson is one of the few DB that had the speed to stay with Austin. Poor QB play only drives Austin’s value down even more.

Pivot to Kamar Aiken ($6,100)

That’s all for this week and good luck everyone.
