DFS Values: DraftKings – Week Eleven
Tyrod Taylor (CPP $281) – For those Draftkings managers looking to stud out their other positions Tyrod Taylor is looking like a potential high upside option with the Bills squaring off against the Patriots in a game that has an the third highest over/under of the week at 48 points. The Bills are expected to be playing from behind in this one eventually meaning Taylor should have more pass attempts and hopefully passing yardage than usual this Monday night. Taylor is a borderline QB1 this week and we have him ranked as the ninth overall quarterback play of the week specifically because of the potential for garbage time type production. Taylor was one fire from a fantasy perspective earlier in the season against the Patriots as he racked up 242 passing yards and three touchdowns to go with 43 rushing yards and a score. Start Taylor in at least one lineup this week.
Danny Amendola (CPP $261) – Amendola is likely to be a very hot Draftkings play this week with him being expected to take on most of Julian Edelman’s targets now that he is out with a broken foot. Amendola is in line to see a healthy amount of targets and could have a monster day if the oft injured receiver can make it through a full game. Start Amendola wherever possible.
Stevie Johnson (CPP $288) – Johnson is now the de facto number one receiver for Philip Rivers in San Diego and is a rock solid play at Draftkings for week eleven of the 2015 fantasy football season. Johnson has yet to have a true breakout game for the Chargers but is playing for a hot quarterback with whom he has shown a pretty solid rapport thus far. Johnson should threaten 10+ targets on the afternoon and is a solid WR2 with upside this week. Start Johnson where possible this week in both GPP and double ups.
Darren McFadden (CPP $281) – McFadden has a very tasty matchup on the docket with the Miami Dolphins this week and should be fired up wherever possible over at Draftkings. The Dolphins have given up the fourth most fantasy points to opposing running backs with 118 rushing yards and 4.7 receptions per game. Fire up McFadden where possible despite him showing up on the injury report this week.
Adrian Peterson (CPP $304) – Adrian Peterson comes in this week as one of the top CPP values and is a solid play at a modest salary of $6,800 this week against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers run defense looks good on paper but closer analysis reveals that they have been gashed for big fantasy days by every good running back they have faced this season giving up three touchdowns to Jamaal Charles, 166 yards from scrimmage and a score to Matt Forte, 159 rushing yards to Todd Gurley and even surrendered 161 yards and three total touchdowns to the Denver Broncos struggling backfield. Start Peterson where possible.
