The Sunday kickoffs for Week 11 are almost here, and it’s time to start plotting out your Week 11 DFS lineups. In Week 10, a lot of the usual suspects dominated, but we had some under-the-radar names step up in a big way to key folks to victory.
If you find good value elsewhere in your DFS lineup, that affords you the luxury of ponying up for a premium player at a different position. If you’re able to spend a little more money on a player, who not make it the wide receiver position?
So here are three best wide receiver plays over $5,500 that could provide the best value for Week 11. Values from DraftKings.
DeAndre Hopkins (HOU) - $8,100
DeAndre Hopkins has everything you’d want in a DFS wide receiver: elite talent, a quarterback playing at an MVP-level in Deshaun Watson, a mediocre defense on the other side (the Baltimore Ravens 23rd in the NFL against opposing wide receivers), and the makings of a shootout with Lamar Jackson and an elite offense as the opponent. Hopkins is $1,800 cheaper than the most expensive wide receiver in daily fantasy this week, so there’s still solid value there despite the hefty price tag.
Mike Evans (TB) - $7,400
The last time Mike Evans faced off against the New Orleans Saints, he was zero’ed out of the boxscore completely: zero catches for zero yards. However, that was in New Orleans with Marshon Lattimore shadowing him all game. This time, the Saints are forced to travel to Tampa to face the Buccaneers and will be without Lattimore on defense. Jameis Winston is playing significantly better of late, so Evans could be in a for a big game against their division rival.
Terry McLaurin (WAS) - $5,600
Moving to someone a little cheaper this time, McLaurin and the rest of the Washington football team are set to face off against the New York Jets and the NFL’s 3rd-worst defense against opposing wide receivers in 2019. Dwayne Haskins will slowly start to improve as a quarterback in the NFL, and against one of the NFL’s worst defenses, this could finally be his breakout game. If he’s going to throw the ball, McLaurin is one of his only weapons in the passing game. Even if only in garbage time, McLaurin should still see plenty of volume targets.
