Football Hotpage – Week Eleven – Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Thursday gives us three interesting games and I will be looking to stack Redskins.  But I try to focus on breaking down the plays on the Sunday Main Slate, so here we go.  There are plenty of safe quarterbacks on the top end of the salary range, but if you go there you will not be able to afford the top tier running backs.

So Derek Carr has exactly one touchdown pass in six of his past seven games.  Why on earth would you consider a Raiders stack?  The answer is simple – price.  The deflated price on Carr, Cooper, and Crabtree allows you to roster two upper echelon running backs.  Can Carr throw for 300 yards with three touchdown passes?  Absolutely.  Can Cooper and Crabtree combine for 40 points?  Absolutely.  Trying to win DFS tournaments requires taking chances, and this one seems too good to pass up.

QB Tom Brady NE 7700 Could throw 4 TDs before they shut it down
QB Carson Wentz PHI 7200 Been consistently very good
QB Russell Wilson SEA 7000 Piling up numbers with no running game
QB Jared Goff LAR 6700 Should be a shootout vs. NO
QB Cam Newton CAR 6600 Volatile QB with high ceiling but low floor
QB Matt Ryan ATL 6400 Good for 2 TD each week, but no huge games so far
QB Tyrod Taylor BUF 5800 Returns with a vengeance
QB Derek Carr OAK 5600 Very favorable price on Raiders this week
RB Todd Gurley II LAR 8800 Good week for the top tier RBs
RB LeSean McCoy BUF 8500 Extra touches with Tolbert out
RB Kareem Hunt KC 8000 Another great matchup (but so was last week)
RB Christian McCaffrey CAR 6900 High floor with the receptions
RB Dion Lewis NE 4800 Need to pick one of the Pats RBs, but which one?
RB Joe Mixon CIN 4300 If not now, when?
RB J.D. McKissic SEA 3700 High risk but does not need much at very low price
