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 tight end position?
So here are three best tight end plays over $4,000 that could provide the best value for Week 11. Values from DraftKings.
Hunter Henry (LAC) - $5,700
When Hunter Henry is healthy, he’s an elite fantasy tight end option. The problem has been whether Henry can stay healthy. He seemed healthy enough last week, scoring a touchdown for only the second game in 2019. This week, he should find a little lighter sledding against the Kansas City Chiefs and the 22nd ranked defense against opposing tight ends. The Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers could be in store for a shootout this week, and that means good things for Hunter Henry.
Jared Cook (NO) - $4,400
The New Orleans Saints are a week removed from failing to score a single touchdown at home against the one-win Atlanta Falcons. That has been one of the primary culprits in the drop in Cook’s DFS salary this week, when otherwise - a matchup against the NFL’s second-worst defense against opposing tight ends - he should come much more expensive. MVP-contender Michael Thomas appeared to injure himself on the final play of the game last week for the Saints, so if Thomas can’t go, look for Brees to look Cook’s way even more frequently on Sunday.
Gerald Everett (LAR) - $4,600
The Los Angeles Rams will likely be without their #3 receiving option in Brandin Cooks due to a concussion for the second week in a row. That meant good things for Gerald Everett as the Rams face off against 7th-worst defense against opposing tight ends last week, when he put up his second-highest receiving totals of the year last week. This week, they’re facing the 3rd-worst defense in the Chicago Bears, so it could be an even bigger week for Everett.
