Fantasy Football: Best Value Plays for NFL Week 11 on DraftKings

Are you running out of cap room on DraftKings? Want to get the most bang for your buck when you're squeezing those final players into your lineup? We've got you covered.

The fellas from The Low Blow Sports Show have compiled their best values for Week 11 of the NFL for one-day/week fantasy football on


ROLLIN: Robert Griffin III ($6,300)
This may look like the homer pick of the month from me, but it's really only due to a lack of options. I was tempted to go with Mark Sanchez like my dear friend Adam Cavallini, but I'm afraid Green Bay's defense may give Butt Fumble some problems.

Matty Ice is enticing against a struggling Carolina team, but he hasn't broken the 20-point threshold since Week 4. That includes last week against Tampa Bay. Ryan Mallet is tempting in his first start against Cleveland, but the Browns have held quarterbacks down for the most part and Arian Foster is list as "Out."

So ummm...yeah...RGIII wins by the deduction method. Plus, he's getting two full, healthy weeks of practice and is facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are ranked next to last against the pass.

ADAM: Mark Sanchez ($5,800) 
This is one of those examples of taking advantage of DraftKings' pricing. DraftKings puts out their prices before the Monday Night Game, so the price has not been adjusted to account for Mark's stellar debut in Philly.

No Butt Fumble here. Grab him while you can get him for cheap.


ROLLIN: Alfred Morris ($5,400)
Quit hating. The guy scored 24.9 points against Minnesota in Week 9. He seemed to get his confidence back against Dallas in Week 8, and the addition of RGIII as a run threat has opened up clear lanes for Morris to plow through like the days of old.

Again, these guys are going up against Tampa Bay. The Redskins will probably find a way to lose, but not before this duo racks up some fantasy points on thrift store pricing.

ADAM: Mark Ingram ($6,200)
Sure, his price has gone up $300 from last week,but it is also his third week in a row that he has gone over the century mark. Week 11 sees Cincy coming to town.

The Bengals give up an average of 143 yards a game on the ground, and they are the second-worst team in the league when it comes to giving up rushing touchdowns.


ROLLIN: Jordan Matthews ($4,500)
I have to agree with Cav here. Matthews has stayed in double digits the last three weeks, and put up a monster game last week against Carolina with 35.8 points.

It is indeed a small sample size we're working with, when it comes to the Sanchez-Matthews connection. But it has been noted that the two have been practicing together regularly on the second-team offense.

I was big on Matthews coming out of Vanderbilt, and I believe he will continue to shine. Is he a near-guarantee like Maclin? No. But with a $4,500 price tag, I'm all in.

ADAM: Jordan Matthews ($4,500)
Much like my quarterback pick, this is one to take advantage of the pricing strategy. Although it may only have been from a sample size of seven quarters, it seems Jordan is Sanchez's favorite target.

So to get a wide receiver capable of a 10-plus catch game, with multiple touchdowns, for less than $5,000 is a must play.


ROLLIN: Travis Kelce ($4,000)
It's been an up-and-down season for the Chiefs early fantasy sensation, Travis Kelce. But I think he'll be on an uptick this week, going against a Seattle defense that ranks 25th against tight ends this season.

Anthony Fasano is also listed as questionable with a sore knee, so keep an eye on that. Without Fasano in the lineup, Kelce could see an increased workload.

ADAM: Dwayne Allen ($4,500)
Although he seems to split targets with Coby Fleener, Allen is the bigger and better of the two tight ends Indy has. I expect him to get a lot of red zone looks this week when the Pats come to town.

Currently, they are 22nd in giving up points to tight ends. Vegas already has this game as a 57-point over-under with the Colts favored by three.

There will be a lot of touchdowns scored in this game.
