Digging In The Crates Daily 2018 week 11 DraftKings
Digging In The Crates (DraftKings)
Week 11 (Main Slate)
Dak Prescott @ Atlanta ($5,200)
We can all agree that the Cowboys offense starts and ends with Ezekiel Elliott but the addition of Amari Cooper has to be a positive for the teams morale. In two games Cooper has 11 catches for 133 yards and a touchdown. Prescott has a dream matchup against a Falcons secondary that is allowing 294 passing yards per game. With Amari Cooper in the picture there is balance again. I think that Prescott and Cooper make a cheap stack
Eli Manning vs. Tampa Bay ($5,200)
It’s only a matter of time until Eli Manning maximizes his full of arsenal of weaponry and week 11 could be it. Vegas has this game set as the second highest O/U of the week at 52 points so we can expect some points. He’ll get a bottom of the barrel Buccaneers secondary that are allowing 291 yards per game, and ranked 29th in pass defense. I don’t think any of us are confident in Eli Manning week to week but he wont get a better opportunity to thrive the rest of the season. Stacking this game makes a ton of sense and there are numerous ways to differentiate it.
Mark Ingram vs. Eagles ($4,700)
Last season week could use Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram in the same lineups with steady weekly fantasy goodness. This season feels more inconsistent. Ezekiel Elliott went bananas a couple weeks ago against the Eagles and this game may set up the same way. Fifteen touches seems about right against an Eagles defense that has been pretty good over all against the run. By no means is Ingram a cash game target but for his price in a game that is projected to shoot out, he’s firmly in play. Week 10 Ingram had 13 carries for 104 yards, three receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown.
Dion Lewis @ Colts ($4,800)
The Dion Lewis revenge against the Patriots narrative fizzled week 10 in a game where despite much production from him, the Titans crushed. Derrick Henry vultured two touchdowns but Lewis still had 22 touches. He’ll get a middle of the road Colts run defense in a divisional battle that is one of the higher O/U’s of the week (48.5). There is no question Lewis is a difference maker when he’s healthy. The Colts just allowed Leonard Fournette of all running backs to thrive in the passing game week 10 so Lewis shouldn’t have a problem doing so. I’d use him in tournaments and in cash games.
Amari Cooper @ Falcons ($5,400)
Dak Prescott made the Crate sheet this week and it’s fitting that i’ll name drop his beneficiary. Amari Cooper has caught 11-of-18 targets over the last two week sliding in perfectly as the Cowboys number one receiver. The Falcons are allowing the third most PPR fantasy points to wide receivers and Cooper should feast. He may be chalky at his price point but he’s also going to be hard to fade.
Corey Davis @ Colts ($5,600)
Marcus Mariota was a Crate favorite week 10 and the obvious pairing with him was the equally inexpensive Corey Davis. Davis has twenty targets over the last two weeks and embarrassed Stephon Gilmore in a demolishing of the Patriots. He’s special and he was drafted to be a corner stone of the Titans offense. Things are coming into fruition. It’s good to see back to back weeks of steady, productive, volume and week 11 should be no different. Davis is a matchup nightmare that will command ten more targets. Use him in cash games and tournaments.
Jordan Reed vs. Texans ($3,800)
The sea of mediocrity has taken elite and dragged a former stud into it’s depths. The Redskins are lacking weapons in the passing game and ironically, Jordan Reed who was once the center piece is “healthy” and hardly involved. Reed has caught 15-of-20 targets over the last three weeks. He’s still dealing with pain in his toes after having surgery but has yet to miss a game so far in 2018. Apparently he’s starting to learn how to manage the pain, which would make his timing for his team and fantasy owners pleasantly surprised. Based on his price and lack of talent at the position I think he’ll be a nice low owned tournament play.
Ricky Seals-Jones vs. Raiders ($2,900)
RSJ caught 5-of-9 targets week 10 for 51 yards. It seems like Ricky Seals-Jones has found comfort swimming in the cold water. He does get a favorable matchup week 11 against a Raiders defense that has given up six touchdowns to tight ends over the last six weeks. The Raiders have allowed the third most touchdowns to tight ends. RSJ hasn’t found the end zone since week three against the Bears. He’ll get in this week.
Redskins vs. Texans ($2,700)
The Redskins have five interceptions, two defensive fumble recoveries, 11 sacks and have had 15 or fantasy points in the last 3-of-4 weeks. The Texans offensive line has been atrocious and I expect the Skins to make some plays.
