While I much prefer playing on DraftKings to FanDuel, sometimes we can find an edge by playing on different sites. Players are priced uniquely to each site, and there may be someone that jumps out to you that’s just too expensive to roster on DK. Generally, players are priced higher on FD than DK, so a red flag is always finding a player priced lower on FD. Here are some plays that I feel are underpriced on FD for the Week 11 main slate.
Lamar Jackson ($8,800) vs. HOU
The QB value on FD this week is extremely limited, so Jackson jumps out as the best point-per-dollar play. He has a home matchup against a defense that allows plenty of fantasy points to QB, a high rushing floor, and a high game total.
Ezekiell Elliott ($8,400) at DET
Elliott’s $600 cheaper on FD than DK, and facing a Detroit defense that’s been shredded on the ground this season. The Cowboys have also called plays forcing the ball to ‘Zeke even in close games rather than air it out. The discount here is pretty significant.
Tevin Coleman ($6,700) vs. ARI
Despite being cheaper on DK, Coleman’s very fairly priced on FD. The real story here is that it’s highly unlikely we see Matt Breida on the field, which means a larger workload for Coleman. As nearly a 10-point home favorites, a RB in line for an inflated workload makes for a very safe play.
Brian Hill ($5,900) at CAR
Hill’s $1,100 cheaper on DK, but he’s the best value play on both sides. Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith are both hurt, and the Falcons were willing to give Hill 20 carries last week (even with Freeman getting touches prior to going down). Hill’s in line for plenty of work against a Carolina defense that’s been shaky against the run.
Michael Thomas ($9,000) at TB
Thomas is the top fantasy WR by a mile, and is in his best matchup of the season. He scored 35.7 FD points against Tampa earlier in the season, and is somehow $900 cheaper than on DK. FD is giving us a bargain on Thomas.
D.J. Moore ($6,000) vs. ATL
Moore should be a popular play on both sites, and is similarly priced. Outside of the win in New Orleans last week, the Falcons secondary has been garbage this season (and Thomas still shredded it in that game). Moore’s become Kyle Allen’s favorite target, and is in his best matchup of the season.
Calvin Ridley ($5,500) at CAR
Ridley wasn’t able to have a big game his first time on the field following the Mohamed Sanu trade, but the game script didn’t help him. The Falcons led wire-to-wire against the Saints, which took away the need to air it out. Ridley’s the same price on both sites, meaning he’s a better value on FD.
Zach Ertz ($6,200) vs. NE
TE is always a position that’s just more priced up on FD, so you have to adjust accordingly. Ertz seems to have finally broken out of a slump, and should now see more targets with Alshon Jeffery already ruled out.
Vikings D/ST ($4,700) vs. DEN
D/ST is another pay up spot on FD. The Vikings are allowing less than 14 points per game at home this season, and averaging 3.5 sacks per game. Brandon Allen has been turnover prone in the limited preseason action we’ve seen him in, and that could be a factor on the road.
