Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin

Cowboys listed Amari Cooper as questionable for Week 13 against the Saints. Cooper was limited in Wednesday's practice. The questionable tag at least leaves some doubt about his availability, but the fact he was activated from the COVID-19 list suggests the Cowboys expect Cooper to play. He will be a solid WR2 against the Saints on Thursday night.

New Orleans Saints DFS Spin

Taysom Hill will start Week 13 against the Cowboys. Hill has been battling a bit of a foot issue and has played just 38 offensive snaps since his Week 5 concussion. With Trevor Siemian not getting the job done and the Saints fading in the playoff picture, coach Sean Payton decided it's the right time to get Hill under center. Hill will immediately become a streaming option for fantasy players. He brings huge upside as a runner. Hill's insertion isn't great news for New Orleans' pass-catchers, but Siemian wasn't really either. Look for the Saints to run the ball as much as possible with Hill, Mark Ingram, and possibly Alvin Kamara if active.

NFL Week 13 Betting Prediction

The Cowboys are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games in New Orleans, while the underdog has cashed in nine of the last 11 meetings and the home team is a perfect 5-0 against the number in the last five meetings. The Cowboys are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games played on Thursday, which includes an outright loss to the Raiders on Thanksgiving Day as a 7-point favorite. The Saints are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games as a home underdog and have covered in 25 of their last 34 games as an underdog overall.
