QUARTERBACK

If you are playing on FanDuel and Sean Payton stays as it is now Taysom Hill (TE) looks like he will be starting for New Orleans at QB. He is still listed as a TE on FanDuel AND he is going up against the absolute worst team in the NFL against the QB. This combo has led Senior Analyst, John Wentz, to make Taysom his play of the week. On DraftKings, Taysom is interesting, and although rock bottom cheap at $4800, still makes it hard to use up a QB slot.

On DraftKings our top pick is Joe Burrow. Listed at $5500 he is priced at 35% off some of the bigger names on the slate and he is coming off a game with the Steelers where he put up just 213 yards and a TD. Before that He had three solid games and we expect 250+ yards and 2 TDs in week 11. Just slightly behind Burrow is Justin Herbet going up against the Jets. Herbert has only been below a 3 value once this season and it was week 2. When he played the Jaguars he put up 347 yards and 3 TDs and has the potential for similar numbers against the Jets. Finally, Roethlisberger against the Jaguars rounds out our top 3 QBs. Big Ben has had 2 back to back 4+ value games and we’d be surprised he doesn’t make it 3 against Jacksonville.

RUNNING BACKS

Dalvin Cook was our play of the week in Week 8 and Week 9 and he put 51.6 and 42.2 pts respectively. We told you to stay off him in Week 10 and he was a dud with 14.2. Get back on the Cook train week 11. This is the Cowboys and they don’t have the run stopping power that Chicago has. Fully, expect at least 30pts out of Dalvin.

Everyone jumped on the Mike Davis bandwagon in week 10 and he busted. His price is sustainably higher on the main slate, but the Lions are the worst run stop defense in the NFL. Don’t be worried to pay up for Davis week 11. When he played the Falcons he put up 30 and this is a similar matchup.

Finally, keep an eye on Alvin Kamara. With Brees down New Orleans is going to rely heavily on him and could be a great play with Taysom Hill dumping the ball off to him every other down.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Our top 3 picks at WR are Terry McLaurin, Jakobi Meyers, and Adam Thielen. Meyers is a great value at $4900 and has the most potential for the most upside. Amari Cooper has also been fairly quiet since Prescott went down and against the Vikings could be a sleeper superstar week 11 that will be missed by most.
