Ricky Seals-Jones active, offers value in DFS

The Cleveland Browns unveiled their inactive list, and tight end Ricky Seals-Jones will be active. He was listed as questionable with a knee injury, but will play in Week 11 on Thursday Night Football vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.

RSJ is not a great season-long fantasy option, but for this week, he offers some streaming value and more importantly, some DFS value. The Steelers have given up the seventh most fantasy points to tight ends. Maybe they lock it down this week, but with them likely to focus on Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, Seals-Jones is worth a look.

His DraftKings price sits at a mere $5,400. Nobody cheaper than him will likely see significant snaps. Trey Edmunds might vulture a touchdown, but RSJ is an intriguing volume play against this bad defense. This is not something I’d recommend most weeks, but for this week against a bad defense vs. tight ends, you could do worse if you’re looking for some upside from a player most people will avoid.
