There are some excellent values this week for running backs in DFS! Find out here as we break down the winners and losers in DFS for Week 11!

Christian McCaffrey – ($8,900 DK, $10,000 FD)  – CMC is back and ready to start dominating the fantasy world once again. This week should be a good start as the Panthers take on the Washington Football Team. Washington ranks 18th in giving up fantasy points to running backs so far this season. McCaffrey likes this game scenario as he averages 25.38 fantasy points per game and is 100 percent consistent. He’s worth it this week.

Jonathan Taylor – BEWARE –  ($8,300 DK, $8,800 FD) – Taylor is having the season that we all expected as he ranks first in total points and has an 80 percent consistency rating for the year. This week, however, he gets the Buffalo Bills who rank #1 in giving up the fewest fantasy points to running backs this year. Since he’s the second most expensive back in both slates this week, I’ll pass on Taylor this week.

Best Value – RB – Myles Gaskin – ($5,700 DK, $6,200 FD) – Bargains are starting to be hard to come by as well at the running back position in DFS. Gaskin hasn’t been very consistent, but he has done well in a great matchup this year. This week, he gets the Jets who rank DEAD LAST in giving up fantasy points to running backs this season. Gaskin has done very well when playing away versus a bad defense by averaging 33.90 fantasy points and is 100 percent consistent. There’s good value here.

Best Mid-Value – RB – AJ Dillon – ($6,200 DK, $7,000 FD) – If you want to go cheap at running back this week, then a Gaskin and Dillon combo might be the choice. Dillon has earned two straight Clutch Games when Aaron Jones was playing. However with Jones out the next two weeks, Dillon should kick ass! Get both of these guys in your lineup this week.

Dalvin Cook – BEWARE –  ($8,200 DK, $8,400 FD) – Cook is the third most expensive running back on DraftKings and is playing against a tough Packers defense this week. The Packers rank ninth in giving up fantasy points to backs so far this year. Cook does not do well when playing at home versus a good defense by averaging only 15.57 fantasy points per game and is only 67 percent consistent. I’d would pass on him this week.

Overall, this week we are seeing some potentially huge values but a few people to stay away from that we normally give a full endorsement.
