Picking the right player at the right value in daily fantasy sports can mean the difference between losing money and winning a million bucks.
With that in mind, here’s who we’re targeting in our Week 11 DraftKings lineups.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots, $7,800
The San Francisco 49ers are terrible, the Patriots will be out to prove they’re better than they looked in the Week 10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and Brady — who grew up in the San Francisco area rooting for the 49ers — has never played the 49ers in front of his “hometown” crowd.
Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers, $8,800
Bell’s arguably the best back in football, finally found the end zone in Week 10 (twice) and has produced even without scoring. Oh, and he’s playing the Cleveland Browns. He’s worth the high price.
Isaiah Crowell, Cleveland Browns, $3,900
The Browns are going to have to run the ball, and a matchup with this poor Steelers run defense could be the jolt he needs to get back on track.
T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts, $7,700
Coming off a bye week, we like this matchup against Tennessee’s 29th-ranked pass defense.
Willie Snead, New Orleans Saints, $5,000
He found the end zone twice in Week 10 and for the first time since Week 2. He could provide good value at that price, despite Carolina’s improving defense being a growing concern.
Sterling Shepard, New York Giants, $4,700
He has caught a touchdown in back-to-back weeks and is playing a porous Chicago Bears defense. He’s a value play.
Martellus Bennett, Patriots, $3,700
With Bennett, you get a value price for a No. 1 tight end, while Rob Gronkowski recovers from a chest injury against a terrible 49ers defense. You also get a stack with Brady, making this a win-win play.
Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs, $4,500
Hill burst onto the scene in Week 10 with 10 catches on 13 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown. His four touchdowns already lead Chiefs wide receivers, and he has a decent matchup in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
New England Patriots, $4,500
They’ll have a chip on their shoulder after all the buzz about how bad they are following Week 10’s loss to the Seahawks. And playing Colin Kaepernick doesn’t hurt, either.
