As you prepare to set your DFS lineups for Week 11, looking to win some extra cash before the Thanksgiving holiday, these players are some that you should consider.
Week 11 will be a tricky one at the running back position as Alvin Kamara, Bijan Robinson and Jonathan Taylor will all be on a bye week. You will need to account for this in both your fantasy lineups and DFS picks.
Of course, to win any DFS contest, you need to find the player who is not as commonly selected and who also has a big day. Spending money in your budget is the key, so each player suggested here will be the player at each position that I feel provides the most bang for the buck this week.
In addition to a great value play, I will also throw in a deep sleeper at each spot to really help you set a contrarian lineup.
Quarterback: Jared Goff, Detroit Lions (vs. Chicago)- $6600
There are going to be cheaper options than Jared Goff, but for $6600, that's a price I'm happy to get him at. At home against the Chicago Bears, he should have a big day.
For comparison, Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who will be returning to the field after missing the team's last four games, is $300 more than Goff.
This will be the first meeting between these teams this season, but there is nothing to suggest that this Bears defense is going to slow down the Lions on the road. And at home, Goff is averaging 268.5 passing yards a game this season and he has eight touchdowns to just three interceptions. In addition, none of the defenses the Lions have faced at home have been as generous towards quarterbacks in fantasy as the Bears.
Deep sleeper: Tommy DeVito, New York Giants (at Washington)- $5000
DeVito will be very low-owned and $5000 is about as cheap as you are going to get a QB. It would be a desperation play to be sure, but he did throw two touchdowns against Dallas last week and gets a much more generous Washington defense this week.
