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.
