If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that fantasy is way more satisfying than reality. The whole year has felt like trying to unstick your unit from a rusty zipper, while baby new year watches in the corner ready to yell ‘we got a bleeder!’
Or maybe I just had a rough week 10 in fantasy.
Tom Brady was on fire in week 10, which was surprising for old man TB12. Dalvin Cook also played on Monday night, which could explain the lack of 40 points on your DK sheet.
Who will be the beasts of week 11? Here are some of the top players I am looking at for my DraftKings line-up.
Justin Herbert $6800
Who’s playing the Jets this week? Well it’s none other than rocking rookie Justin Herbert and the Chargers. Granted NYJ has made themselves less ‘sucky’ in recent weeks, but they are still the worst team in the league. Their D has made some strides, and could give Herbert some pressure in this game, but not enough to win. Herbert should have plenty of time to hook up with Keenan Allen in this one if you are looking for a tasty stack.
Taysom Hill $4800
WTF did Jameis do to get benched in this contest? Word on the dirty streets is that he had a run in with Sean Payton, and it wasn’t pretty. Speaking of pretty, stud-hunk Taysom Hill will see if he’s more than just a ‘sneak it up your bottom’ type of QB, or if he actually has some depth. Luckily Hill is playing the Falcons, who have gushed points in every contest. Will Hill prove his value, or be shown to be a bit of a starter fraud? Either way, he’s cheap at $4800.
Dalvin Cook $9000
Hey big spender, watcha got cooking? Dalvin Cook has been incredible since returning from injury, and should be able to continue gashing yards against a helpless Cowboys team. Dallas kept it tight against the Steelers a few weeks ago, but Cook is a different animal. His explosive speed and great RB vision should pay off in a few TDs.
Salvon Ahmed $4800
Who? This Miami rookie gets his first start on Sunday thanks to injuries to the Dolphins running game. Despite playing in his first year, Ahmed has shown signs of promise and should factor in the Dolphins relentless attack against an injured Broncos squad. Tua will also look to Ahmed in slot options, and a great steal at $4800.
Keenan Allen $7400
His DK price continues to rise each week, as he continues to demonstrate dominant plays. Allen and Herbert have really found a solid rhythm, and you can imagine Allen is going to feast all over the poor Jets with plenty of time and space all day. Sure, he’s pricey, but paired with Herbert he is definitely worth it.
Jakobi Meyers $4900
Meyers is quickly becoming the go to favourite for Cam Newton in this mess of a Patriots squad. After a solid win against the Ravens last week, the Pats will be looking to continue their winning ways against a weak Texans defence. He’s incredibly cheap at $4900 and should be able to get you 15 fantasy points on Sunday.
Eric Ebron $4000
One of the many shining lights in a sea of Steelers, Ebron is one of the few guys Big Ben can hit within a 10 yard radius. Jacksonville has a fast from which gave Rodgers trouble last week, but Tonyan was able to find some gaps in the armour. Ebron will have plenty of time, as the Jags will be focused on the slew of Pittsburgh receivers who will also be open.
After coming back from a bye, the Saints have been on fine form-unless of course you count losing Drew Brees for 3 more weeks. Their D played with fire last week, and you can expect that to continue against a division rival. New Orleans will look to get to Matt Ryan often, breaking down his resolve and taking the pressure of Taysom Hill, who will need all the help he can get.
