ESPN: Week 13 DraftKings Late Matchups

At ESPN Insider, some of our favorite DraftKings matchups for the late slate only include Kirk Cousins, C.J. Anderson, T.Y. Hilton and Travis Kelce. Also would recommend loading up on the Steelers (Ben Roethlisberger, DeAngelo Williams, Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant). They won't be 51 points good like last year, but this offense is a yardage machine under Roethlisberger in 2015.

Clutch Encounters: Week 12

The Patriots lose a fourth-quarter lead for only the 15th time in 15 years. Also: Seattle's first shootout win, the kick-six, leaping in TB-IND, an aggressive Alex Smith, and the one negative way Aaron Rodgers stands out from his peers.

ALEX: Week 12

Which receivers have the highest and lowest ALEX on third down this season? Also, Week 12's updated stats show a very aggressive Ben Roethlisberger on third-and-short that can only be rivaled by... Blaine Gabbert? It's a weird season indeed.

ESPN: Week 12 DraftKings Late Matchups

With only four games in Week 12's late slate, this should be an interesting one. Some of our favorite matchups include Carson Palmer, Thomas Rawls, Martavis Bryant and Gary Barnidge. Yes, even a Josh McCown-Travis Benjamin stack against the Ravens is viable this week.
