NFL DFS Week 11: Locks, Values, and the #CrackUm Player of the Week
Week 11 of NFL DFS should be interesting, as it features several great games and low prices for some players that should be more expensive.
Last week was an interesting one, as some games didn’t unfold as they were expected to play out. Hopefully it was still a successful week for everyone regardless. This week will be even more interesting, as it features several great games and low prices for some players that should be more expensive. It should make for some fun lineups. Good luck to everyone on the Week 11 main slate.
Lock: Justin Herbert (FD:$8.5K/DK:$6.8K) – I’m not sure if you can call this man a rookie anymore. Herbert is an absolute threat every week through the air and on the ground a bit. He has posted over 20 points every week with the exception of one game. This week, he will face the Jets in what should be a lopsided matchup.
Value: Alex Smith (FD:$6.6K/DK:$5.3K) – Smith’s comeback has been amazing and now he gets a very favorable matchup against the Bengals. Over the last two games, his passing attempts have been pretty high. That will not change in Week 11. The only thing that will vary is the ceiling of Smith’s production, as he will finally put together a multiple-touchdown performance in this game.
Lock: Alvin Kamara (FD:$9.7K/DK:$9.2K) – No matter who plays the most at quarterback for the Saints this weekend. they will rely on the safety blanket in the star running back. Kamara will log 25+ touches with a touchdown in this game.
Value: Salvon Ahmed (FD:$5.6K/DK:$4.8K) – A starting running back getting the full workload for this price? This is an absolute steal. The Dolphins have been playing very well as of late. The Broncos’ rushing defense sits in the middle of the pack when it comes to stopping the run. In this game, look for Ahmed to amass 20+ touches for 100 yards and a touchdown.
Lock: Keenan Allen (FD:$8.0K/DK:$7.4K) – Allen’s receptions might have been down last week, but it was still a good game. He has been a touchdown machine for the most part and that will continue against a Jets team that ranks near the bottom of the league against the passing game. This will be a major bounce-back game for Allen that should look something like ten catches, 110 yards, and a touchdown.
Value: Jakobi Meyers (FD:$6.0K/DK:$4.9K) – The targets for Meyers will continue this week against a Texans’ defense that is poor at defending the pass. This game could be a shootout as well, which will only increase targets and scoring chances for Meyers. It seems as if Cam Newton has found a favorite target, so except nine catches for 110 yards and a score in this game.
Lock: Mark Andrews (FD:$6.5K/DK:$4.9K) – The Ravens got embarrassed on national TV last week. They will be looking to get back to what made them successful and that is getting the ball into the hands of one of the best tight ends in the game. That offensive mentality will help Andrews’ value in a game that should see Baltimore move the ball through the air against a bottom-tier Titans’ defense.
Value: Logan Thomas (FD:$5.2K/DK:$3.3K) – Thomas is making the most of his receptions, as he averages around ten yards a catch. This week, he will continue that trend and also log a touchdown in this favorable passing game. Expect Thomas to post five catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.
#CrackUm Player Of The Week
Taysom Hill (FD:$4.5K/DK:$4.8K) – Now this is an exciting play, as the Saints have labeled Hill as the starting quarterback. On FanDuel, he is listed as a tight end. But on DraftKings, he is listed as a quarterback. Both are at a price that is way too cheap for what Hill could potentially have up his sleeve. Just keep in mind that he might not be that starter throughout the whole game. Regardless, for the prices you would pay, he will surpass the value very easily against a bad Falcons defense.
