NFL DFS Breakdown: Week 11 Headlines

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we’ve literally almost reached the third quarter of the NFL regular season and as Scott Hanson would say “it’s witching hour ladies and gentleman”! The tight end positions is still a mess, injuries are popping up all around the league, Gruden can’t figure anything out, and RotoPros is here to break down what it all means from a DFS standpoint. 

Eagles vs. Saints will be the highest-owned game-stack of Week 11.

It’s been a common theme for the last few seasons to make sure you have plenty of exposure to the Saints + whoever they are playing on a given week that they are home on their AstroTurf. This particular week that happens to be the Eagles and their high-powered passing attack. In my opinion, the game script for this one will most likely involve the Saints taking an early lead, scoring early and often, while the Eagles also manage to put up points but still find themselves having to come-from-behind, which will lead to Wentz-Ertz-Alshon being a wonderful combination to include in a lineup with Kamara/Thomas if we have some value open up throughout the week. Highest over/under on the slate, this is as safe of a game to attack from a DFS perspective as there will be all season. Brandon Marshall was just signed to replace Dez this week, however he will probably not know much of the playbook by this weekend and I would look to TreQuan Smith for value instead. 

Keep an eye on Marvin Jones.

The Lions elected to keep Marvin Jones out of practice on Wednesday, and with a short-week coming up next week when they play their annual Thanksgiving game, it would not be surprising for the team to play It safe which would mean Golladay could be in for an absolutely massive workload this upcoming Sunday against the Panthers shoddy-secondary.  

Thielen limited, Cook and Diggs looking great.

The Vikings are coming off a bye and face a difficult test against the Bears revamped defense. However, things are looking up in Minnesota as the offense is finally getting healthy as Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs have both been cleared for full practices. Thielen finds himself slightly banged up, however I don’t think it will be enough to keep him out this week. The Bears have played very well at home, and I would imagine the game script sets up nicely for the Vikings pass-attack in this one. 

Keke, do you love me?

The Texans are coming off of a much-needed Week 10 bye, and after getting in a limited practice on Wednesday look for Keke Coutee to return to the slot against a difficult Washington defense. Approach this with a little bit of caution as we have not seen how the target distribution will shake out for Watson after the arrival of Thomas, however my gut tells me that upwards of 85% of Watson’s passing attempts go to those three this Sunday. $4500 is a great price to take a chance on in GPP this week. 

Dion Lewis is still too cheap on DraftKings.

He was one of the most popular plays last Sunday as his price was not adjusted due to playing in the Primetime game the week before, and he was a little unfortunate not to find the end-zone against his former team. Lewis is still under 5K and ended up with 20 carries. Henry will most likely continue to vulture some of the Goal-line touches, however Lewis can sneak in there as well and comes with a nice PPR bonus on DraftKings. The Colts can put up a lot of points, and this is a division rivalry so look for Lewis to be a very safe Cash play this week.
