FanDuel Daily Fantasy Football Helper: Week 11
With the highly anticipated showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams occurring on Monday night, we're missing two of our favorite offenses on Week 11's main slate, but there should still be plenty of fantasy goodness to go around with five contests checking in with a total of at least 48.0. The highest of those belongs to a potential shootout at the Superdome between the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints with an alluring 54.5 total.
We'll dig into that and more in our weekly FanDuel primer, where we give you an overview of the Sunday main slate to help you get started on your research. As always, we recommend checking out all of numberFire's premium tools at your disposal. In particular, the heat map is a great way to get a general overview of the slate's implied totals, and every team's strengths and weaknesses. You also have access to numberFire's weekly projections, which can assist you in nailing down who might be the slate's top scorers and best values.
Be sure to also pay attention to inactives prior to Sunday's games, which can often completely change the makeup of a given slate. After all, injuries can have a huge impact on playing time, where an otherwise low-priced backup can suddenly find his way into a feature role and become an excellent play.
Now, let's run through some of this week's top plays on the FanDuel main slate.
Drew Brees ($8,500 on FanDuel): The Saints have put up a ridiculous 51 and 45 points in their last two games, and could be poised for another offensive explosion at home against the Eagles. As we noted at the top, this game has shootout written all over it with the slate's highest over/under (54.5), and New Orleans also boasts the highest implied total (31.00), the only one exceeding 30. Although Drew Brees' floor has been surprising low at times this season, his ceiling has been absolutely ridiculous, with 5 games exceeding 27 FanDuel points, including a 40.54 score in Week 3. Brees is completing a league-best 77.3% of his passes while compiling 21 touchdowns to just 1 interception, and we know how dangerous he is at the Superdome, where he's averaging 347.8 yards per game and 9.59 yards per attempt this season. Philadelphia isn't necessarily a pushover matchup, as the ninth-ranked passing defense by numberFire's schedule-adjusted metrics, but that's of little concern against a New Orleans offense firing on all cylinders. At around the same price, Cam Newton ($8,600) is also worth a look in a cupcake matchup against the Detroit Lions, numberFire's worst overall defense.
