Philly Sports Wave: Week 11 DFS Sleepers

This week is a clusterfuck to say the least! The Taysom Hill mess that has been caused in season  long leagues on ESPN has opened the door for leagues to have 2 starting QB on a team. Great job by CBS, Yahoo and other sites that addressed this before the week. This is just another example of how ESPN has become dog poo not only as a network but as a site. I know that we are just a few local Philly guys doing a short blog, so our opinion don't matter much, but it is unreal how such a huge corp can allow itself to become such a stain

This Atlanta vs New Orleans game will be a shootout and we are pumped for it in every way possible!

Anyway, we are expecting to do a pod on Sunday AM either live or on a short delay. Check in for updates to these brief picks. Ride that Wave people!!!!





With the run game struggling the Steeler’s coaching staff has figured out they can just throw to their 3 stud WR’s to move the ball at will and that doesn’t stop this week against the Jags who allow the 3rd most points to QB’s on the season. I expect a big day from Big Ben. Ugh I am better than that .. moving on

BONUS- I also like Jameis Winston on the cheaper side




If you are anything like me you were hoping CMC would be here for this dream matchup. Well he’s not so we plug in Davis here. He is obviously not CMC but he gets DET this week who are ranked dead last against the run. I know Davis put a dud up last week but that against a far better D. He will be heavily involved in rushing and passing game in this one and should finish as a top point getter for the position.


Bonus- I also like Antonio Gibson, De’ Andre Swift and Salvon Ahmed


WR- Dionte Johnson


I am stacking here with Big Ben. Johnson is a target monster in this offense and it will not change this week against the Jags, who also as you could guess are in the bottom in the league in points allowed to WR this season. Johnson could run wild in this one.

Bonus- The other two Steeler Wr in Ju Ju and Chase Claypool do not be afraid to use two of them in your lineups with double stacks . I also like Christian Kirk tonight



TE- Hayden Hurst


Hurst was on a bit of a heater heading into his bye and I like that to continue even with the possible return of Ridley. The Saints have allowed double digits points to TE 5 times this year and I think Ryan spreads it around in what could be potential shootout

Bonus- Taysom Hill could be in for a big day here as well as a do it all hybrid with TE eligibility, Also like Logan Thomas





Quietly a top 10 defense and special teams and could be facing a back up QB who threw 3 picks against the JETS I like Miami a lot here . Good luck this week


QB- Matt Ryan


Ice Ice Baby. Matty Ice is going to throw the ball all over against the Saints. I know a guy that faced off against him and beat him in High School here in PA. Ryan has been trying to overcome that devastating loss in his own mind for years and thinks about losing to Dave K before every single game as motivation to dominate.......I made that up but even though Dave K did beat him in HS  he doesn't need the extra motivation for games like this week. Stack him with Julio and basically any other parts of the offense. He is going to make sweet love to the field this week!

BONUS- I also like Jameis Winston on the cheaper side because he may get more play than Payton is saying so far.



RB- Josh Jacobs


Jacobs always seems to play well in divisional games and he hasn't had a monster week in awhile so I am expecting him to step up to another level this week against the Super Bowl Champs. Look for a multi TD performance form JJ as he gets back to what his owners have expected all year.


Bonus- I also like Antonio Gibson to keep on rising, Zeek and Cook will put on a show on At 4oclock against each other! As will CEH who should reach the endzone at least once, M Davis is going to continue to do what he ahs been doing which is great for his cost and K Ballage is looking like the highly owned/low cost play if the week. 


WR- Julio Jones


He is the beef!!! Stack him with Matty Ice and you have an old school winner. If you can scrub and stud stack and throw Mike Thomas going the opposite side you may have a winning ticket this week. Atlanta vs NO is going to be high flying. Get in on it! Julio may go lower owned than you would expect too so this could work for you all around. He and Thomas are both very expensive which makes me think they might go overlooked as people will either move up to pay for Adams or pay down for other wideouts.

Bonus- Juju will continue to rise this week, Davante is always the guy to start but he is pricey and will be highly owned but if you can fit do it, Michael Thomas will get back to being MT and Hill/Winston will look to him often, and keep on keeping on with Willy from Philly as Will Fuller will get down with more get down and reach the endzone again.





TE- Dallas Goeddert 

 Is he finally ready to come back to life? The Eagles offense needs the TE to contribute and I expect them to get back to basics this week.

Bonus- Taysom Hill could be in for a big day here as well as a do it all hybrid with TE eligibility in DFS. If you can get two qbs in your lineup to make money do it. I would say it is kind of scummy move to do it in a season long and honestly most leagues should vote on it but in DFS it is all about the $$$ so get it.



DEF- Pittsburgh 


 Best defense if you can afford is Pitt as usual. Also loving the Eagles defense against Baker and the boys this week, Miami against Denver will make you do a gagger and dance and you can not go wrong with the Chargers against the JETS as usual always attack the Jets.
