Week 11 Pick’Em Selections on DraftKings
GPP: Carson Wentz at New Orleans
This game has a 54.5 point Over/Under for many reasons but one of the most exciting is Carson Wentz’s matchup against this Saints secondary. Wentz ranks sixth in the league in passing yards per game and gets to face a Saints defense that ranks 31st in passing yards allowed per game and 28th in Pass DVOA. The Eagles as a whole are struggling right now but Wentz really isn’t, as odd as that sounds. Wentz has thrown for 300+ yards or 3 TDs in six straight games.
Cash: Drew Brees vs. Philadelphia
Brees is in a head-to-head battle with Patrick Mahomes for MVP of the league right now. He’s been incredible all season long as he ranks 11th in passing yards per game (289), first in completion percentage (77.3%) among qualified QBs, and tied for fourth in TD passes (21). The Saints schedule has also been fantastic as of late and this week is no different. Brees gets to play at home in the best fantasy game on the main slate (over/Under of 54.5 points) against an Eagles defense that ranks 23rd in passing yards allowed per game and 14th in Pass DVOA. Plus, the Eagles secondary is banged up right now as Ronald Darby is on Injured Reserve and Jalen Mills sat out Week 10 due to a foot injury.
GPP: Andrew Luck vs. Tennessee
Luck has been incredible this season. He ranks 13th in passing yards per game (274.7) and second in Pass TDs (26) and leads a Colts team that ranks ninth in yards per game and sixth in points per game. This week, Luck gets to play at home in the dome against a Titans defense that ranks 18th in Pass DVOA. Tennessee does lead the league in points per game allowed (16.8), which is certainly noteworthy. However, Luck is matchup proof and should also be low owned.
