DFS Cash Game Breakdown 2020 Week 11
Cam Newton, NE
After a brief stint of playing horribly and getting benched for Jarret Stidham...Newton appears to be back. In his previous three games, Newton has thrown one touchdown and no interceptions while averaging 7.6 adjusted yards per attempt. His value comes as a runner though. Newton is running 10 times per game and averaging 41.9 yards plus a little more than one touchdown. Despite all of this, he remains at $6,200 on DraftKings.
Deshaun Watson, HOU
One bad game and both Fanduel and DraftKings price down Watson. His game versus Cleveland last week can just be thrown out because he played outdoors in a game where the weather was so bad it was delayed at the start. Before that, he had at least two touchdowns in six straight games. He faces New England this week in a game with a 48-point (and rising) total. Expect a bounceback at a reduced cost.
D'Andre Swift, DET
Swift may finally be the workhorse back that the Lions drafted him as. He got his first official start last week and carried the ball 16 times for 81 yards while adding five receptions for another 63 yards and a score. All other Lions backs combined for six touches. His price hasn't adjusted yet so we can safely go back to him as a value this week.
Dalvin Cook, MIN
If looking to pay up for a running back, Cook is the guy. Removing the game he left with an injury, Cook has topped 100 yards from scrimmage in five straight games. He did not dip below 24 opportunities in any game over that span. Cook also has at least one touchdown in every game but one this year. With values at quarterback and running back, it's viable to get up to the best runner on the slate this week.
Jakeem Grant, MIA
Preston Williams was out for much of the Dolphins' game two weeks ago and all of last week. He will also be out this week which puts Grant in a great position. Grant has 10 targets in the past two weeks. Fanduel still only has him at $4,600. He's the No. 2 receiver for an ascending quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa and is priced with No. 3 receivers or secondary options on bad teams.
Jakobi Meyers, NE
DraftKings continues to drop the ball on Meyers' pricing. He's only $4,900 this week despite clearly separating himself as the top receiver in New England. Meyers has a 38% target share and a whopping 61% air yards share over the past four weeks. Even if his passing offense doesn't put up gaudy numbers, he gets a large enough slice of the pie to be a solid value this week.
Logan Thomas, WAS
Thomas may not be a flashy choice at tight end but he continues to be the best punt play on the slate. He has seen at least four targets in every one of his games this year. Thomas is one of only three tight ends who can say that and the other two or vastly more expensive.
Dallas Goedert, PHI
Goedert is coming off his first multi-catch game since Week 2 and he should be able to keep the ball rolling versus Cleveland's defense. The Browns are 21st in passing yards allowed despite playing consecutive games in weather that made their contests look like something from the 1960s. Goedert was the leading receiver on Philly to start the season and is now getting back in form. Keep going back to him at a lowered price.
Despite the incredible comeback narrative, Alex Smith has struggled to produce efficiently on the field. He has a 2.9% interception rate, an 8.8% sack rate, and 6.1 adjusted yards per attempt. Any defense that faces Smith is a strong option, even the Bengals.
