NFL Week 11 DFS Plays for DraftKings

Tom Brady, Deflategate

($Price on DK) Player Name vs Opponent | Spread, Game Total

Cash Game Plays
($5,800)Kirk Cousins vs GB | -2.5 WAS, 50.5
Cousins has shown an ok floor at 13.3 fantasy points being his worst score on the season and has averaged 19.9. In a projected shootout with a high game total vs a funnel defense, he should be able to more than pay off his $5,800 salary and near his ceiling.

($8,800)Le’veon Bell @ CLE | -8 PIT, 49
Is the player playing the Browns? Check. Play them. Oh its Lev Bell?! ALL IN! Targeting any player at any position vs the Browns this season has and will be successful this season. With David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliot facing two of the toughest run defenses in the league, Bell is your clear 1A target at the running back position in cash games.

($9,500)Antonio Brown @ CLE | -8 PIT, 49
AB is under $10K, he is your first option in cash games up top at the wide receiver position. A matchup with the Browns helps ease the $9.5K price tag buyers pain. Averaging 11.6 targets and 23 fantasy points per game this season, Brown is the most sure thing on a week to week basis the fantasy world has ever seen at the wide receiver position

($5,900)Jordan Reed | -2.5 WAS, 50.5
Reed is a phenomenon of Gronkonian upside that is over $1k cheaper than the man himself. Coming off of a tough matchup where he disappointed many people, who shouldnt have been on him, he faces a funnel defense in which he should reach his target ceiling. Before last week Reed hadn’t had less than 10 targets in the previous 3 weeks. If you can get up there he provides the highest floor/ceiling combo at the position. Green bay allows the 7th most fantasy points to the position.

DFS Plays

GPP Plays
($7,800)Tom Brady @ SF | -13 NE, 51.5
Touchdowns will be scored. The Patriots have the highest team total on the week and for good reason. The 49ers defense can’t stop anybody at anything. A viable strategy in GPPs is to stack Brady with LeGarrette Blount and lock up all the Boston touchdowns because they are projected for at least 4 according to vegas, but, lets be honest, a reasonable projection is 6. Brady has the highest probability of being the highest raw points scoring QB on the week

($6,400)Legarrette Blount @ SF | -13 NE, 51.5
The Garrette is a running back and he’s playing the 49ers. All i see is dolla signs. Keep it simple and load up on Blount in gpps and he’ll have you high on the leader board. His ownership may be inflated because of the matchup, especially due to his 3 touchdowns last week, but there are enough people that don’t play non pass catching backs on DraftKings it will be palatable.

($8,500)Odell Beckham Jr. vs CHI | -7.5 NYG, 44.5
Beckham has waded through his slow start and brought his average fantasy points up to 19.1 while averaging 10.1 targets. Is Beckham in the best spot? No, he is in the second best spot among the high end guys, but he has a decent chance of outscoring AB at likely less than half of the ownership putting you ahead of a large chunk of the field.

($5,400)Tyler Eifert vs BUF | -3 CIN, 47.5
This may be the last chance to get Eifert at a low ownership and reasonable price this year. Many are overlooking his 13 touchdowns of yesteryear and will avoid a seemingly tough matchup vs the BIlls who have had a typically tough defense in the past few years. However, the Bills are allowing the 10th most fantasy points to tight ends.
