Fantasy Football Picks: Top DraftKings NFL DFS Value Plays for Week 11

Steve Buchanan gives his top value plays at each position for Sunday’s main DraftKings NFL slate.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

We can all figure out who the studs are on a football slate. No one has to go out of their way to tell you to play Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen on a particular slate. What really takes the effort is combing through the player pool and figuring out who are some of the best values on the board ahead of the Sunday slate. That’s what we’ll do in this piece each and every week. I’ll help you save some salary while hopefully not skimping on the fantasy production.

Let’s get into some of the best value plays at each position for the Week 6 main slate on DraftKings.

Week 10 recap:

QB - Will Levis - 6.96 DKFP
RB - Najee Harris - 18.6 DKFP
WR - Trenton Irwin - 13.4 DKFP
TE - Cade Otton - 3.1 DKFP

Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers vs. Los Angeles Chargers, $5,600 — No one is overly excited to play Jordan Love on a weekly basis. He’s only completing 58% of his passes, has 10 interceptions under his belt, and quite frankly, has an average group of receivers at his disposal. But lately, we’ve seen some positive play to build on. Over his last three games, Love is averaging 16 DKFP, 248 passing yards, and a 4:2 TD:INT ratio. This week, he faces a Chargers team that’s allowed the most passing yards to opposing quarterbacks with 2841, or an average of 315 per game. This should be a really solid spot for Love, especially against an average pass rush. Working with a clean pocket, Love is averaging 7 YPA with a 64% completion rate and a 71% adjusted completion.

Other Option – Brock Purdy ($5,800) vs. TB

Running Back

Jerome Ford, Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, $5,200 — I do want to preface that while Ford is a great cash game play, I do feel as if Kareem Hunt ($4,900) is a solid tournament play. While Ford is getting the majority of the carries, it’s Hunt that’s being used in the red zone more. Hunt is a boom-or-bust option who is not finding much success carrying the ball but has been able to find paydirt in four straight games. Hunt is getting almost all the carries inside the five, a spot Ford rarely has seen. Something to consider.

That said, Ford has been extremely efficient when carrying the ball. In the Week 2 matchup against this Steelers defense, Ford carried it 16 times for 106 yards while also catching three of his four targets for an additional 25 yards and a TD. The Steelers have been beat on the ground all season long, allowing just over 4.5 yards per carry. With Dorian Thompson-Robinson ($4,500) under center, I wouldn’t be shocked to see them rely on that ground game more than usual.

Other Options – Kareem Hunt ($4,900) vs. PIT

Wide Receiver

Rondale Moore, Arizona Cardinals at Houston Texans, $3,300 — If anyone saw a short-term boost by the return of Kyler Murray ($6,100) last week, it was Moore. Drawing eight targets, Moore grabbed five of them for 43 yards and 9.3 DKFP. Sure, it wasn’t a huge game for Moore by any means, but a new season-high in targets could be a sign of things to come. Now, playing in a game that has the highest game total on DraftKings Sportsbook of 48 points, Moore could be in line for plenty of work in Week 11. His 8.1 aDOT and 1.59 Y/RR were amongst the highest of the season.

Other Options – Curtis Samuel ($3,600) vs. NYG

Tight End

Tyler Conklin, New York Jets at Buffalo Bills, $2,900 – Conklin is way too cheap for his role in this Jets offense. Over the last two weeks, he’s seen 13 targets and nabbed all of them for 136 yards and 26.6 DKFP. The Bills have been average against opposing tight ends, allowing 11 DKFP, 43 yards per game and three touchdowns. But, at $2,900, for a player that has the second-most targets behind Garrett Wilson over the last two weeks, he’s well worth the investment.

Other Options – Michael Mayer ($2,700) at MIA
