Bound To Go Bonkers in Week 11
Top 5 Fantasy Football Daily League Sleepers (Fanduel)
(RB) - Andre Brown $6,500 - By Week 11 of the 2013 fantasy football season, it's pretty clear that we need to find the undervalued players each and every week if we want to be competitive in weekly league tournaments or heads-up games on Fanduel. Let's get this straight: when "Week 11" and "running backs" come up in the same sentence, we are also required to associate Andre Brown with that trifecta after the monster return to action he showed in Week 10. Since he was able to put up a healthy 18.4 fantasy points against Oakland's putrid defense, we think he can provide at least 14-15 points for those fantasy owners who are shrewd enough to get Big Blue's #1 running back into their lineup for Week 11 of Fanduel action.
(RB) - Steven Jackson $6,000 - It hasn't been the smoothest of rides for Atlanta's key free agent running back signing of 2013, but Week 11 will surely be a different story for Mr. Jackson. In seasonal fantasy formats, we wouldn't necessarily recommend using him (unless you're in a 14-16 team league and are in a buy-week crunch), but when he's valued cheaper than a backup running back (and a pack of bubble gum), despite being the starting running back on his team, we have to recognize the tremendous upside play unfolding before our very eyes. With all but Harry Douglas left for Matt Ryan to throw the football to, we fully expect the Falcons to take it to the ground and try to exploit the Bucs' 18th-ranked defensive unit, and Steven Jackson will surely be spearheading the attack as he's going to see the most carries out of any of the Falcons running backs.
(WR) - Larry Fitzgerald $6,400 - Times have been pretty tough for Arizona's prized wide receiver thus far in 2013, and Larry Fitzgerald has seemingly sunk to almost complete Fanduel irrelevance as he comes into Week 11 at a super bargain. Priced cheaper than a #3 fantasy football wide receiver, this former Super Bowl hero and currently underrated player has a cake matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars and their horrific pass defense (ranked 29th overall coming into Week 11). It seems as if he has a big game every other week, and if we are sticking with that level of low-end analysis then Week 11 is the one in which he is bound to go bonkers after defecating the bed versus Houston in Week 10. He may be a quiet and forgotten veteran in most fantasy football formats, but in weekly salary cap games like on Fanduel, he can be worth his weight in gold! Get him in as one of your three wide receivers for Week 11.
(WR) - Danny Amendola $6,700 - Although he is facing the very tough Carolina Panthers defense in Week 11, this is still Golden Boy Tom Brady and the New England Patriots passing attack that we're talking about, so you know that there is always a chance for someone on that receiving squad to go bonkers and score a ton of fantasy points in Week 11. Now that everyone is back and healthy, the gameplan is to throw the rock until the opposing defense can prove they can stop them, and Danny Amendola will be a very important part of dissecting the tough schemes Ron Rivera's defense will employ. This is exactly the style of game that will require the kind of quick-hit passes on which Amendola gets paid the big bucks to show off his good hands. With 20.2 points last week against Pittsburgh, we are willing to settle for about 12-13 fantasy points this week in exchange for the super-low salary cap hit we have to take to get him into our Week 11 Fanduel lineups.
(WR) - Dwayne Bowe $5,000 - Just because Dewayne Bowe allegedly likes to blaze a little chronic and speed around recklessly in his motor vehicle during a bye week, it doesn't mean we think he won't go bonkers in Week 11 against the Broncos pass defense. In fact, we are pretty sure that if the Kansas City Chiefs plan on winning this game, Mr. Bowe will be targeted quite a bit more than any of their other mediocre wide receivers (and he will reward the coaching staff for doing so). The theory hopefully leads us to the end result of another big week of Fanduel scoring, just like the one he put up against the Bills in Week 10 when he racked up seven receptions for 67 yards (netting him 10.2 fantasy points). Ultimately, if you are using any wide receiver priced around $5K, then you are looking for a budget-beating sleeper who can hopefully slide into your #3 wide receiver slot for your Week 11 Fanduel lineup so you can spend bigger on your quarterback or #1 running back. The bottom line is this: we fully expect Dwayne Bowe to do his job to the best of his abilities in Week 11's matchup against the rival Broncos, which should mean some solid production from a well-priced #3 WR.
