Week 11 Daily Fantasy Picks – Our Complete List of Targets for Week 11 Games

A week following some of the highest implied totals we have seen this season, this slate is expected to be much lower scoring. The highest scoring games are in the primetime slots, and Buffalo, Cleveland, Miami, New England, New York Jets, and San Francisco are all on bye. With that in mind, expect cash lines to be lower and value to be harder to find. Here is a look at the top implied totals for the main slate on FanDuel and DraftKings.

NY Giants26

Carson Wentz

DraftKings Price – $6,300 | FanDuel Price – $7,700 | Yahoo Price – $37
It’s been a one-QB kind of week for us all week. Wentz has scored 22+ points in bad matchups in each of the last 6 weeks, faces the number 1 QB matchup in the Saints, and should finally have Tate integrated into the offense. We expect 5x his $6,300 salary.

Lamar Jackson

DraftKings Price – $4,700 | FanDuel Price – $7,000 | Yahoo Price – $20
Obviously you can’t use him on FanDuel given his salary is just $700 less than Wentz, but if you are looking to load up on guys like Barkley, Zeke, DJ, Odell, etc… on Yahoo! or DraftKings he is certainly an intriguing option at his salary on both of those sites. We have heard debates on whether or not he can play QB in the NFL all week, but it really doesn’t matter in the DFS world. He is a perfect plug and play option in DFS because he is a lock to break a couple of long runs and is impossible to stop in the red zone. This is obviously a great matchup given the yardage the Bengals have given up every week.

Week 11 Daily Fantasy Running Back Picks

Saquon Barkley

DraftKings Price – $8,700 | FanDuel Price – $8,800 | Yahoo Price – $38
The Bucs are now missing both of their stud linebackers and Barkley is in line to have his best game of the season. We have been playing RB’s against the Bucs every week since Alexander has gone down, and with David now out you can expect to see that 28 PPG allowed to the position trend higher and higher.

David Johnson

DraftKings Price – $7,500 | FanDuel Price – $7,900 | Yahoo Price – $26
DJ made our article last week because he was undervalued given how Leftwich utilized him in week 9. This week he’s more of a combo play in that we love the matchup and volume. This offensive line is still terrible so he will need to be effective in the passing game, but given the Raiders are 32nd in DVOA against the pass and 28th vs RB’s in the passing game we think he’s a lock to be productive today.

Doug Martin

DraftKings Price – $4,500 | FanDuel Price – $6,200 | Yahoo Price – $18
The solution to the Raiders problems has to lie with making Martin their workhorse. In his three starts he has averaged well over 5 YPC and has caught 6 of 7 targets for 68 yards. Nothing in this organization is that efficient, and he serves as a means to keep opposing offenses (and that awful Raiders defense) off the field. Given the matchup, if Martin can get to 25 touches this week he should be a top 5 week 11 RB.

Alex Collins

DraftKings Price – $4,400 | FanDuel Price – $6,000 | Yahoo Price – $18
Speaking of underutilized backs, there has been no shortage of critics saying the Ravens need to get Collins the ball more, but the schedule has been brutal to the Ravens running game. They seem to play a top 10 run defense every week, in fact they have in 8 out of 10 games, but this week they face a Bengals defense that seems to find a way to allow a 100 yard rusher every week and currently ranks 28th in DVOA vs the run and is giving up over 140 YPG and 5.0 YPC on the season.

Theo Riddick

DraftKings Price – $4,000 | FanDuel Price – $5,100 | Yahoo Price – $11
He has to catch the ball this week, there is no getting around that for the Lions. Tate is gone, Jones is out, Roberts is out, and they had no depth at the WR position to begin with. Riddick has seen a ton of snaps in the slot over the past few weeks and should see a much bigger snap count with TJ Jones moving to the outside to replace Marvin Jones.

Week 11 Daily Fantasy Wide Receiver Picks

Odell Beckham

DraftKings Price – $8,400 | FanDuel Price – $8,500 | Yahoo Price – $39
OBJ gets double digit targets every week, even average receivers can get to 100 yards on the Bucs given double digit targets. Even despite a salary that no where near matches his year-to-date production, I think Odell has 5x upside in what may be the best fantasy matchup in the history of the sport. The Bucs secondary is allowing a near perfect QB rating as a unit, and they have virtually no pass rush… they will find a way to make Eli look good.

Alshon Jeffery

DraftKings Price – $6,300 | FanDuel Price – $ 7,300 | Yahoo Price – $26
While Jeffery looks chalk on paper, I still think this is a somewhat risky pick because Tate saw 4 targets in 18 snaps last week. That target rate in this offense would all but eliminate Agholor and take a serious chunk out of Ertz and Jeffery’s production. That being said, this has historically been a spot that Wentz will allow Jeffery to abuse his matchup and target him 10+ times. The Saints are 31st in DVOA against opposing number one receivers, allowing 12 yards per pass attempted to opposing number one receivers.

T.Y. Hilton

DraftKings Price – $6,100 | FanDuel Price – $6,000 | Yahoo Price – $21
Remember when we thought Malcolm Butler was good? This Titans secondary is completely overrated and Butler will likely be matched up against Tyrone Hilton which is a recipe for disaster. If the Titans are able to contain the tight ends (they only allow 36 YPG to the position) look for Luck to just let TY go to work on Butler today.

Tre’Quan Smith

DraftKings Price – $3,000 | FanDuel Price – $4,900 | Yahoo Price – $17
Sean Payton is all about matchups and is clearly willing to pretend like Tre’Quan isn’t even on the field if he likes another matchup better. We have also seen him set him loose like they did in week 5. The Eagles are 30th in DVOA vs number 2 receivers, and have given up plenty of big plays on the outside. Look for Smith to break hit at least one big one in what we think will be the highest scoring game in this slate.

Seth Roberts

DraftKings Price – $3,000 | FanDuel Price – $5,100 | Yahoo Price – $11
This one is too easy. No way Roberts doesn’t reach value on both DraftKings and FanDuel this week. He is minimum salary on DraftKings, but is going to get a large chunk of the Raiders targets this week. Expect to see Peterson travel with Lafell this week (if he does at all) and for Roberts to work primarily out of the slot. At the minimum salary, he just has to replicate the week 8 stat line he put up in his first game without Cooper to hit 4x value.

Week 11 Daily Fantasy Tight End Picks

Greg Olsen

DraftKings Price – $5,000 | FanDuel Price – $6,500 | Yahoo Price – $21
Given the injuries to their secondary, which already lacked depth, the Lions have been forced to use safety Diggs in the slot which has meant Tavon Wilson is back to TE duty. Trust me when I say you want to target Tavon Wilson. He couldn’t stay with a parked car and has zero chance of slowing down Olsen this week.

Jared Cook

DraftKings Price – $3,900 | FanDuel Price – $5,500 | Yahoo Price – $16
Cook is the only red zone receiving option Carr will have today, so he should see a few targets if/when the Raiders are in scoring position in what appears to be a favorable matchup. All Cook needs is targets, he averaged 32 fantasy PPG in the two games he saw double digit targets this season. With Nelson and Bryant both out there should be more than enough targets for Cook to hit double digits again this week.
