There’s a sneaky value play for a wide receiver in New England, but it isn’t Julian Edelman. We break down your best low-cost WR options in Week 11 DFS.

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 splurge elsewhere in your DFS lineup, you might need to scrap the bottom of the barrel to fill out the rest of your lineup. If you’re able to save a little more money on a player, who not make it the wide receiver position?

So here are three best wide receiver plays under $5,500 that could provide the best value for Week 11. Values from DraftKings.

Tyler Boyd (CIN) - $5,200

I’ll believe AJ Green suits up for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2019 when it happens. Until then, that means it’s still up to Tyler Boyd to carry the Bengals offense from the wide receiver position. Fortunately for Cincinnati fans everywhere, that shouldn’t be too difficult against the Oakland Raiders and the NFL’s worst defense against the pass. Boyd hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 5, but this could very well be the week he finds the end zone for the second time in 2019.

Mohamed Sanu (NE) - $5,100

In Sanu’s second game with the New England Patriots, his first after a full week of practice with the team, he caught 10 passes on 14 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown. This week, Sanu and the Patriots are set to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles and the 25th ranked defense against opposing wide receivers. Sanu should only improve as he gets more practice reps with Tom Brady.

Cole Beasley (BUF) - $4,700

After going three straight weeks with a touchdown (but never getting more than 41 receiving yards in a game), Beasley broke his touchdown streak but racked up 74 receiving yards on four catches. Beasley hasn’t been able to string together a game with both a decent yardage total and a touchdown, but this week, could do so this week against the Miami Dolphins who - despite their recent wins are still trying to tank this year.
