DFS Week 11 – 11/18/2018

Already Week 11 and almost Turkey Day. I am switching up the post this week and going by positions and breaking down my thoughts that way.


Cam Newton $6200 at DET: Cam is my favorite play at QB this week. They get the Lions who have not been playing well, but should get a bump at home enough to keep it competitive. The Panthers are coming off their mini-bye week here as well after being embarrassed Pittsburgh setting up a solid bounceback spot here.

Drew Brees $6500 vs PHI: Philly’s secondary is super banged up so I would expect Drew to tear them apart. He is the most expensive QB on the slate at 6.5k so I won’t have all that much of him, but he is still a viable play.

Matt Ryan $6100 vs DAL: He plays better at home and the Cowboys’ pass defense gives up more pass yards per attempt with Sean Lee on the sidelines. Both of those give positive bumps to Matty Ice this week.

Dak Prescott $5200 at ATL: I don’t feel super comfortable here as this feels like a let down spot, but Dak is just too cheap to completely ignore.

Big Ben $5800 at JAX: Another play that I am not super comfortable playing, but again he just got a price cut of $500 after torching the Panthers for 5 TDs.

Ryan Fitzpatrick $5600 at NYG: The Giants are bad and the offensive play-calling duties have been given back to the OC Monken. We should see more offense here and people may be off of him after last week’s dud. Good GPP play with high upside.

Marcus Mariota $5500 at IND: Mariota hasn’t had a great game all year. He’s only thrown for over 300 yards once and hasn’t thrown over 2 TDs in a game yet this season. He is due for a breakout performance one of these days and at this price tag he has some appeal.

Josh Rosen $4800 vs OAK: This is strictly a GPP play. The Raiders are not competing whatsoever as noted by the 9 points they put up across the last 2 weeks and double digit losses. Rosen has definite upside if that trend continues.

Lamar Jackson $4700 vs CIN: Another GPP dart play here. It sounds like he is going to be sharing time with RG3 so that lowers my appeal, but for those who saw him in college you know he is capable of doing big things on the ground and through the air. Worth a dart toss in a GPP.
