- DraftKings has Ben Roethlisberger as the QB4 heading into Week 11.

- Amari Cooper could be seen as a value pick as he is listed at $5,400.
NEW ORLEANS – Week 11 of the NFL season is set up to be a good one from a fantasy football standpoint as there are many value and sleeper picks available for daily fantasy football GM’s to look at.
These seven players that are listed on DraftKings all offer tremendous value for their asking prices.
The main thing to look at when playing DFS is the value that certain players bring to the team as well as their asking price.
Value Pick, Ben Roethlisberger, $6,700: Ben Roethlisberger is coming off of two great games in a row against awful defenses in the Dallas Cowboys who rank 24 against opposing QBs and the Cincinnati Bengals who rank 26.
In those games, he threw the ball for over 300 yards in both and had three or more touchdowns as well.
In Week 11, he has a matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars who rank 30 against opposing quarterbacks who are coming off of a game where they allowed Aaron Rodgers to go for 325 yards and two touchdowns. At his asking price, he is one of the more valuable picks of the top four quarterbacks this week.
Sleeper Pick, Taysom Hill, $4,800: The New Orleans Saints have announced on Friday that Taysom Hill would be replacing the injured Drew Brees as their QB1.
Hill has been used throughout his career as a swiss army knife for the Saints offense as he has lined up at almost every offensive skill position. That being said, he has completed 10 of 18 pass attempts for 205 yards and an interception in his career.
It does help his case, however, that he is facing off against the worst secondary in the league in the Atlanta Falcons.
Value Pick, Alvin Kamara, $9,200: Alvin Kamara has really held his value this season as he is the number one fantasy football running back this season averaging 27.4 points per game.
He is coming off of a three-touchdown game in Week 10 where he rushed for 15 yards and two touchdowns and caught 83 yards and a touchdown as well.
Kamara has a more than favorable matchup in Week 11 against the Falcons who rank 23 against opposing running backs.
Sleeper Pick, Kalan Ballage, $5,600: Ballage brings great value to any team in Week 12 as he has made his case for the RB1 spot while filling in for the injured Austin Ekeler.
Ballage has led Chargers running backs in rushing attempts over the last two weeks (15 and 18), where he put up 16.4 and 15.2 points in each game. As legal sports betting sites continues to increase his player prop betting totals, te has a great matchup this week against the New York Jets, who rank 26 against opposing running backs.
Value Pick, Keenan Allen, $7,400: There is no hiding that Keenan Allen is clearly Justin Herbert’s favorite target.
In his last four games, Allen recorded 11 targets or more and the other one being seven targets. Allen, like Ballage, has a favorable matchup with a terrible Jets secondary that is ranked 23 against opposing wide receivers.
Also, in his last four games, three of them have seen over 21 fantasy points as well. Allen will likely burn the Jets secondary and go on to have a nice game.
Sleeper Pick, Amari Cooper, $5,400: There is nothing “sleeper” about Amari Cooper as he is the Cowboys WR1 and has proven that. What makes him the sleeper here is his low asking price which is below the average cost price before drafting any players.
Cooper could get back to his explosive ways in Week 11 now that Andy Dalton is back under center.
The last time he took the field with Dalton, Cooper exploded for 79 yards and a touchdown for 20.9 fantasy points.
Value Pick, Hunter Henry, $4,600: Henry is seen as TE3 ahead of Week 11 of the NFL season and it all has to do with his matchup with the New York Jets who rank down at 26 against opposing tight ends.
Henry has had himself a quiet season thus far but if there was ever a time for him to have a decent game, it is here considering that the Jets rank towards the bottom against every offensive skill player.
