With injuries stacking up and four teams on a bye, Week 13 could create headaches for season-long fantasy football leagues. This gives you another reason to play NFL Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) this week. If you’re looking for a way to combine the fun of betting and fantasy football, Underdog Fantasy may be the perfect site for you.
Unlike the typical salary cap lineup construction format that most DFS sites follow, Underdog has users build their own parlays by selecting Over or Under on up to five specific player props instead. The more props you select, the higher the multiplier on the entry fee.
Another unique game on Underdog is called “Rivals," where users can pick who between two players will total more of a specific stat. These Rivals picks can be added to the same fantasy parlay as the typical picks.
Now that you understand how Underdog Fantasy works, let’s get into the DFS football predictions series for Week 13!
Prop stats information for NFL DFS Week 13 picks are current as of Friday, December 3, at 11:00 a.m. ET.
NFL DFS Week 13: Underdog Daily Fantasy Sports
Users can parlay up to five NFL fantasy picks together to win 20 times your entry fee.
Derek Carr, QB, Las Vegas Raiders vs Washington Football Team
OVER 273.5 Passing Yards
Derek Carr has been playing great for the Raiders this season, and this Washington secondary is no good. They give up 266.6 passing yards per game, which is the third-most in the NFL. Their 7.4 yards allowed per pass attempt is the fifth worst. Carr has totaled over 273.5 passing yards in four of his past six games, including 373 on Thanksgiving last week. It’s much easier to pass than run on this Washington team, so that is exactly what Las Vegas will likely do.

Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams vs Jacksonville Jaguars
OVER 100.5 Receiving Yards
The Rams need a “get-right" game in the worst way, and the Football Gods answered their prayers with this matchup. Cooper Kupp has been phenomenal this season, and he has totaled at least 101 receiving yards in four of his past six games. The two games he didn’t hit the century mark were totals of 95 and 96. Odell Beckham Jr. is questionable to play, so Kupp could see even more targets against a Jacksonville defense allowing opponents to complete a crazy 71.31% of their passes this season. At times, it will look like Kupp is running his routes on air.
Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans
OVER 108.5 Rushing Yards
This feels like one of the easier Underdog Fantasy picks of the weekend. Jonathan Taylor comes off a game in which the only criticism surrounding him was why he didn’t carry the ball more. Taylor has averaged over five yards per carry in six of his last seven games. He has totaled at least 108.5 rushing yards in three of his past four games. Taylor also had a 145-yard rushing day against the Texans back in Week 6.
Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons
OVER 70.5 Receiving Yards
The matchup with the Falcons is shaping up to be a great one. In fact, it could be a statement game for Tampa. The Falcons allow opponents to complete 68.6 percent of their passes (fourth highest in NFL), showing they don’t provide much resistance through the air. Atlanta also averages a league-worst 1.4 sacks per game, showing they don’t get much pressure. If Tom Brady gets time to throw, he will look downfield to Mike Evans. In three games Brady and Evans played against the Falcons together, he has totaled 75 or more yards twice, including back in Week 2 this season.
Diontae Johnson, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens
Over 69.5 Receiving Yards
There are many terrible things you could say about this Steelers offense. However, none of the insults should be directed at Diontae Johnson, who has been fantastic this season despite the struggles in Pittsburgh. He has totaled at least 70 receiving yards in eight of his past nine games. A big reason for this is he has 99 targets in these nine games. This week, he faces a Ravens team who allow 7.5 yards per pass attempt, which is the third highest in the NFL. They will be blitzing constantly, and Johnson should be able to break loose at least once as a result.
