NFL DFS picks Week 11 Best sleepers valu

  • The unrelenting beast that is the NFL season lumbers on with thousands of fantasy football owners lamenting injuries, bad beats, and downright mediocre offense. But daily fantasy enthusiasts who have followed this column all season have smiles on their faces. While endle s season-long redraft owners struggle through each week, we have been crushing DraftKings and FanDuel tournaments all season by targeting sleepers and under-the-radar DFS value plays.EveryTuesday, we scour the DK and FD player pools to pinpoint the best investments based on matchups and stat trends. By capitalizing on affordable sleepers in certain DFS roster spots, we leave ourselvesthe budget to greatly improve other roster spots with proven weekly studs. Let's face it: in order to afford a Justin Jefferson ($9,100 on DK), you must invest in the occasional Terrace Marshall Jr. ($4,400).WEEK 11 DFS: This column has consistently produced this season, and readers are seeing healthy returns on their DraftKings and FanDuel accounts. We have averaged 10-12 hits per week, with a per-player average of right around 20 DraftKings points. That was no different in Week 10, with another 10 notable hits.

Our 10 best hits averageda whopping 20.06 DraftKings pointswhile only costing us an average of $4,750 per player. That kind of cheap production will always put you in the running for DFS winnings.We're sitting pretty like ! Let's ride this momentum into Week 11 with another round of DFS sleepers and value plays.All player values are from DraftKings and FanDuel. All stats are from and Pro Football Reference.WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS: | Daniel Jones, Giants vs. Lions (DK: $5,700 | FD: $7,800)This play is more for DraftKings users, as $7,800 is a ma sive chunk of change on FanDuel. But at $5,700, we love our guy Danny Dimes. The Lions rank last in fantasy points allowed to QBs (on both DK and FD) and just got burned by Justin Fields to the tune of 43.4 DK points. Jones should rack up a handful of chunk-yardage rushing attempts as well as some big plays through the air. He won't put up a 40-piece as Fields did, but a 25-30 point game is not out of the realm of po sibilities here.Taylor Heinicke, Commanders at Texans (DK: $5,300 | FD: $6,800)We had to mention Heinicke -- and not just because he's only $6,800 on FanDuel. The Commanders have won four of their past five games, and they have Heinicke to thank for most of that succe s. Sure, he will never blow you away with a 400-yard game or five-TD effort, but he usually does just enough to get the job done as an above-average game manager. He has a clear rapport with top Washington wideout Terry McLaurin, and he's effective at getting the ball to Washington's other playmakers. We believe in the power of Heinicke and think he can put up numbers similar to what Jones posted when the Texans and Giants met last weekend (197 pa sing yards, two TDs, 18.3 fantasy points).More solid Week 11 QB values: Ru sell Wilson, Broncos vs. Raiders (DK: $5,800 | FD: $6,900); Marcus Mariota, Falcons vs. Bears (DK: $5,500 | FD: $7,200); Davis Mills, Texans vs. Commanders (DK: $5,200 | FD: $6,500)WEEK 11 STANDARD RANKINGS: | | | | | Devin Singletary, Bills vs. Browns (DK: $5,800 | FD: $6,400)Considering his role as the clear RB1 on one of the NFL's best offenses, Singletary carried an absurdly low floor into Week 10. To that point, he had recorded five games with single-digit PPR performances, but he flipped the script against the Vikings, turning 13 carries into 47 yards and his first two TDs of the season. Now, you might look at those numbers and call him touchdown-dependent, but overall, I'd say he's just volume-dependent -- and the volume should remain high this week. Josh Allen continues to nurse his UCL injury, and the Browns have given up the second-most fantasy points to RBs on DraftKings and third-most on FanDuel.Antonio Gibson (DK: $5,600) and Brian Robinson Jr. (FD: $6,600), Commanders at TexansOne of the reasons the aforementioned Heinicke has been effective for Washington is because of his two-headed monster of a backfield. While Gibson and B-Rob have been le s than stellar from an efficiency standpoint, their overall fantasy numbers look just fine for these prices. With his PPR upside, Gibson has averaged 12.7 DK points per game this season and 14.7 over the Commanders' past four games. He's the clear choice in DK's PPR format, as Houston has allowed the most DK points to RBs this season. Robinson might be the better investment on FanDuel, where the Texans alsorank last in points given up to RBs. The Washington rookie saw a whopping 26 carries against Philly, finishing with 86 yards and a TD. That kind of volume against a Houston D allowing 5.4 yards per carry and 13 total rushing TDs could result in a 20-point day for the rookie succe s story.Other great Week 11 RB values: Cordarrelle Patterson, Falcons vs. Bears (DK: $6,200 | FD: $6,700); David Montgomery, Bears at Falcons (DK: $6, 100 | FD: $6,200); Kenyan Drake (DK: $5,900 | FD: $6,800) and Gus Edwards (DK: $5,500 | FD: $6,800), Ravens vs. Panthers; Kyren Williams, Rams at Saints (DK: $4,800 | FD: $4,900)WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: | | | | | Darnell Mooney, Bears at Falcons (DK: $5,400 | FD: $6,000)The Justin Fields takeover is upon us, and the wideout who has benefited the most from his QB's breakout is Mooney. Clearly the best wide receiver on the team, Mooney has caught 16 of his past 17 targets for 170 yards and a TD. Now he faces a Falcons defense that has given up the most fantasy to WRs on both DraftKings and FanDuel . Mooney stock to the moon!Darius Slayton, Giants vs. Lions (DK: $5,000 | FD: $6,300)Slayton has become one of Danny Dimes' top targets, hauling in TDs in two of the Giants' past three games and finishing their Week 10 win over Houston with 95 receiving yards. He has good hands and runs routes well, but the most fantasy-friendly facet of his game is his after-the-catch explosivene s. Come for the four-catch, 50-yard floor and be pleasantly surprised by a breakaway TD or two. Detroit ranks in the top seven in FPPG allowed to wideouts, so we expect Darius to Slay(ton) this weekend.More strong Week 11 WR values: Brandin Cooks, Texans vs. Command
