Lions’ Eric Ebron is a Sneaky Play for Week 11
ERIC EBRON IS A SNEAKY PLAY FOR WEEK 11
Eli Manning vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Coming off of back to back games in which he threw for at least 270 yards and two touchdowns, Eli Manning now faces the Chiefs secondary in Week 11. Kansas City is a bottom tier defense allowing an average of 19.8 PPG to opposing QBs. In a game in which he will likely be playing from behind, look for Manning to post low-end QB1 numbers in this matchup. I expect him to post only his second 300-yard game of the season while getting into the end-zone at least twice.

Latavius Murray vs. Los Angeles Rams: The Week 11 matchup against the Rams may look difficult on paper, but it’s actually lining up to be a decent day for Latavius Murray. He’s been getting at least half the snaps over the last four outings for 15-18 carries per game. The Rams defense is in the bottom quarter of the league in points allowed to running backs, which should open things up for him. Expect the Vikings to rely on the running game to keep the hot Rams offense off the field. Murray should get around 70 yards and a score in this game, making him a low-end RB2 for the week, and a DFS play that likely no one will be on.
Marqise Lee @ Cleveland Browns: Coming off games in which he has scored a touchdown in two straight, Marqise Lee now finds himself matched up against the lowly Cleveland Browns in Week 11. The Browns’ passing defense is among one of the best in points allowed to opposing wide receivers, but much of that can be attributed to teams being ahead and abandoning the pass. Look for that to be a similar case here, but not before Lee takes advantage early on. I’m expecting Lee to get six catches for 90 yards and a touchdown in this game. That makes him worthy of a start as a WR3 in seasonal leagues, and a cheap sneaky play in DFS.
Eric Ebron @ Chicago Bears: Don’t look now, but Eric Ebron is slowly finding a place in this passing attack again. The Week 11 matchup against the Bears is going to be a reach of a play if you need a streaming option. But with a target share that is becoming consistent, Ebron could easily bring in four catches for 50 yards and a score. He is a definite longshot, but it’s the kind of move that can help you cash in DFS if played correctly.
Nick Novak vs. Buffalo Bills: After allowing the Saints to pile up 47 points last week, the Bills’ defense is on the ropes. The Chargers should find moving the ball quite easily. Which will give Novak a few opportunities to score points at a low cost.
Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Call it a gut feeling, but the Dolphins’ defense will come out ready to play in Week 11 against a Bucs offense that is seemingly stuck in the mud. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, you can almost count on a couple of turnovers along with several sacks, making this defense a good streaming option and a cheap DFS play that should exceed their value.
