Week 11 - DFS Values & Prop Bets
We are back to look towards the main slate on Sunday for our DFS value pieces. Just like the NFL, we both had rocky weeks with the underdogs shocking a few of us.

Ryan Tannehill vs Texans $6700 (Andy)
With Henry out of action, Tannehill has been a threat around the goal-line, scoring a couple of rushing touchdowns. He should continue to be an option in the redzone, and if the Texans manage to keep him out, there is always the choice of throwing to AJ Brown.
Tua Tagovailoa vs Jets $5500 (Andy)
Tua should start this week after coming off the bench midway through last week’s Thursday night game. He will have the chance to put up a good stat-line in a divisional matchup with the Jets. A mini-stack of Tua and Waddle would help pay up in other places.
Justin Fields vs Ravens $5700 (Phil)
As the Bears continue to let Fields grow into his role, he gets better and better each week with his rushing upside keeping him with a nice high floor. For now, think of him as a cheaper version of Lamar.
Cam Newton vs WFT $5100 (Phil)
He’s Back! Last week he threw for one TD and ran for another as a package sub QB. Now the plan is to let him run the offense and start. Putting up 11 points in minimal work, he will steal goal line touches from CMC and should remain fantasy relevant this week with his rushing upside.
AJ Dillon vs Vikings $6200 (Andy)
With Aaron Jones out of this week’s contest, Dillon should handle the vast majority of work in the next couple of games. He was a bright spark last weekend and should have the chance to add to his redzone opportunities against the Vikings.
Joe Mixon vs Raiders $7600 (Andy)
The Raiders were torn apart last weekend by the Chiefs, especially at running back, and Mixon should have the chance to put up another solid line and follow in Darrel William's footsteps.
James Conner vs Seahawks $6100 (Phil)
Yes, I know he was a disappointment last week, but he still scored 15.4 points even with them being blown out. I expect him to see more carries and catches this week against a Seahawks D that has been below average at best all year long.
Michael Carter vs Dolphins $5800 (Phil)
The receiving upside of Carter as Flacco checks down to him repeatedly has me salivating for this matchup. Carter is slowly taking control of the backfield and I expect that to continue this week.
Jaylen Waddle vs Jets $5600 (Andy)
As we said above, playing the stack of Tua and Waddle allows for cash to be spent in other places in your lineup. Waddle should receive a good number of targets here and could see the endzone. Our partners at Thrive think he has a great shot of at least one receiving TD as well.
Brandin Cooks vs Titans $6000 (Andy)
Cooks is a very consistent receiver, and he is still cheap enough to balance out your team. He should give a floor at around the 15/20 point mark and shouldn’t ruin line-ups, especially in a reasonable matchup.
Darnell Mooney vs Ravens $5200 (Phil)
I love the cheap stack of Mooney with Fields; it is clearly becoming evident that this team will be younger moving forward and ARob’s days are numbered as the Bears see the chemistry building between the rookie and the second-year man.
Rashod Bateman vs Chicago $4500 (Phil)
All it seems like he does is catch first downs and score about 10 pts minimum a game. Without yet finding the endzone Bateman is quickly showing he will be fantasy relevant and should find space against this Bears D.
Dawson Knox vs Colts $4000 (Andy)
Knox did not have the best game last weekend but is still a big part of the Bills offense. If he finds the endzone, he’ll have a solid game.
Dan Arnold vs 49ers $4100 (Andy)
He is finally above $4k, but he has been as consistent a DFS tight end as you could find. He is receiving a healthy amount of targets each week, which he then turns into good yardage.
Cole Kmet vs Ravens $3400 (Phil)
Mooney and Kmet are showing the chemistry with Fields and allow for a cheap triple stack to allow you to spend more elsewhere. The last two weeks it’s been clear that he and Mooney are Field's favorite targets.
