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 FanDuel lineups.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots, $9,300
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, $9,100
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, $6,200
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, $7,900
Coming off a bye week, we like this matchup against Tennessee’s 29th-ranked pass defense.
Sterling Shepard, New York Giants, $5,900
He has caught a touchdown in back-to-back weeks and is playing a porous Chicago Bears defense. He’s a value play.
Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs, $5,400
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’s got a decent matchup in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Martellus Bennett, Patriots, $5,200
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.
Adam Vinatieri, Colts, $5,000
He has been the best kicker in fantasy, and we had the money to spend, so why not?
New England Patriots, $4,900
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.
