Last week was pretty much a disaster in the world of Daily Fantasy Sports for yours truly, as pretty much all of the players I decided to go with (outside of A.J. Green) basically decided to take the week off. But, as I've often said when it comes to this entire endeavor, the best part about this sort of thing is that you get a chance to line up and do it all over again the next week, so let's take a look at what I'm rolling with for this first weekend in December.

FanDuel Week 13

After I loaded up on expensive wide receivers last week, I went significantly cheaper on that side of things for this weekend, but I found guys that are going against pretty terrible defenses. Hopefully that will balance things out a bit. I decided to go with Winston at quarterback because he's taking on the Falcons. . .and, as we saw last week, that team is reeling a bit. Adrian Peterson is rolling at this point in the season, and the Seahawks have defended tight ends pretty poorly this year, so I had to grab Kyle Rudolph as well. Cincinnati's defense is an obvious choice, as the Browns are starting something named Austin Davis at quarterback on Sunday.

So, how much would it cost you if you wanted to put nine Minnesota Vikings in your lineup for this week?

Position Player Week 12 Salary Week 13 Salary Change
QB Teddy Bridgewater $6,500 $6,100 -$400
RB Adrian Peterson $9,000 $9,100 +$100
RB Jerick McKinnon $4,500 $4,600 +$100
WR Stefon Diggs $6,600 $6,200 -$400
WR Mike Wallace $5,100 $4,900 -$200
WR Jarius Wright $4,900 $4,900 $0
TE Kyle Rudolph $5,000 $5,100 +$100
K Blair Walsh $4,700 $4,800 +$100
D Minnesota $4,400 $4,500 +$100
Total $50,700 $50,200 -$500

Both Bridgewater and Diggs got a significant drop this week, but after the Vikings didn't do much through the air last weekend, that's to be expected. Wallace, who started the season as the Vikings' receiver with the highest value, is now in danger of getting passed by Wright. I guess that will happen when you have the same number of catches in three of the last five weeks as I do.

But that's what I've got for Daily Fantasy Sports for this weekend, ladies and gentlemen. Who are you rolling with in Week 13?
