Dak Prescott – 6,700 at DET
The cowboys are one of the highest scoring offenses in the league and one of the best in terms of yards per game as well. The lions defense is one of the worst (29th in the league vs the QB) and they simply don’t have what it takes to slow down the Cowboys. I like Dak a ton in this matchup and I expect him to put up big time numbers. 300 + yards through the air and 3 TD.
Josh Jacobs – 6,900 vs CIN
The raiders offense runs through Jacobs and the Bengals are one of the worst rushing defenses in the NFL, ranking 28th vs the RB position in DFS entering week 11. Also, taking a look at game script, the Raiders should be put in front in the 2nd half and will be leaning on the running game to finish the game off. Jacobs is my favorite RB this week based on matchup and price
James White – 5,400 at PHI
White puts up double digit points on Draft Kings every single week because of his consistent involvement in the passing game. This game vs the Eagles should be highly competitive and a game where there will be a lot of points scored. In games that the Patriots dominate in, white is scripted out typically, that won’t be the case on Sunday.
Amari Cooper – 7,700 at DET
If you are using Dak, you should be using Cooper. He is the most targeted and productive pass catcher on this cowboys team and takes on a lions defense that is ranked 24th against WR in DFS.
Cooper is the king of monster weeks, posting 34, 42, 26 and 25 point weeks this season and has a couple 18 point performances as well. The cowboys might score 35 points in the matchup and you can bet that there’s a good chance cooper not only catches one of those touch downs but also racks up 7-9 catches and upwards of 100 yards. If you want to save some money, you can look at Coopers teammate Michael Gallup instead.
DJ Moore – 5,900 vs ATL
Moore is becoming the number 1 option in the passing game for QB Kyle Allen. He has seen at least 9 targets each of the past 4 weeks, and over the past 2 weeks he is averaging 22 points per game with back to back 100 yard receiving days. This weekend he takes on the Falcons who rank 26th vs the WR position in DFS this season and they just allowed Michael Thomas to catch 13 passes for 150 yards.
Tyler Boyd – 5,200 at OAK
I don’t typically like anything about the Bengals, but Boyd is undoubtedly their best pass catcher and the most heavily targeted one. Over the past 3 games, he has seen 31 targets and the matchup he has this week comes against a raiders defense that is ranked dead last in the league against the WR position in DFS. The Bengals play a lot of games from behind, well really all of their games from behind considering they haven’t won a game all year, meaning they will be airing out the football and Boyd should be the main beneficiary of it.
Greg Olsen – 3,900 vs ATL
Olsen has been inconsistent this season, but seems to show up when the matchup is in his favor, like the one he has this week against a falcons defense that is ranked 24th in the league against the TE position.
He only has one game this season where he scored a TD, so its certainly not realistic to expect one, but he does see a lot of targets and can rack up yards quickly. He is averaging just over 10 points per game, and although you’re hoping for 12 or more at his price, if he does get the 10 points, you can easily make up those 2 points that you’re not getting.
Mohammed Sanu – 5,100 at PHI
Sanu was quiet in his first game with the Pats, but in his 2nd game, he saw 14 targets, catching 10 of them for 81 yards and a TD. Coming off the bye week, he should be much more ingrained in this Pats offense now and could be in for a nice day against an Eagles defense that ranks 25th against the WR position this season.
Jets – 3,100 at WSH
The Jets defense overall has been pretty terrible this season, but they did just put up big time points against the Giants who are much better offensively than the Redskins. Haskins has been names the Skins starter at QB moving forward now, and his decision making has been very questionable so far this year. This presents a big opportunity for the Jets defense.
