Martellus Bennett TE SF 18.8%
Arizona Cardinals D/ST MIN 20.5%

Quarterback

Tom Brady (NE): $7,800 @ SF (17.3% Own %)
Even though the 49ers are the most vulnerable against the run, the sheer amount of plays they allow gives Brady enormous upside. While he likely won’t have Rob Gronkowski, I still am not worried about Brady, especially after a loss. There are some blowout concerns, but I guess Brady will have a big hand in the scoring this week.

Running Back

Le’Veon Bell (PIT): $8,800 @ CLE (65.2% Own %)
Bell comes with a steep price tag, but his absurd floor due to his involvement in the passing game makes it worth every penny. In cash games, I would try and make an effort to squeeze him into your lineups. With that in mind, you can easily pivot to someone like LeSean McCoy in tournaments, who has just as much upside but comes at a $1,900 discount.

Wide Receiver

Antonio Brown (PIT): $9,500 @ TB (47.1% Own %)
Brown has unfavorable splits on the road, but much like Le’Veon Bell, he makes up for any potential shortfalls with volume. This is also a great matchup against the Browns, so don’t be afraid to have some exposure this week. I prefer to look elsewhere due to the implied ownership levels, coupled with a high salary, but having a few shares is never a bad idea if entering multiple lineups.

Tight End

Martellus Bennett (NE): $3,700 @ SF (18.8% Own %)
Simply put, if Rob Gronkowski cannot play, Bennett is a must for cash games. We know the upside a tight end has in this offense with Tom Brady under center, and the matchup only enhances that upside. In tournament lineups, you’ll have quite the dilemma.

Do you take the free square and look to utilize the salary relief at other positions? Or do you play the fade, hoping to uncover a value play at another position?

I’ll let you know which route to take Sunday evening (kidding). In all seriousness, I think I would lean more towards using him and taking advantage of the salary relief to spend up at other positions.

D/ST

Arizona Cardinals D/ST (ARI): $3,100 @ MIN (20.5% Own %)
The Cardinals’ salary presents us with an interesting choice in Week 11. They are discounted a bit, which makes it feasible to utilize them in cash games.

The Vikings are an anemic offense, but at least they won’t have to play in Arizona. The Vikings do have an implied team total of 21.25 points, so I think I would prefer to look for another defense that is cheaper and may fly under the radar.
