Notorious' NFL DFS Core Plays: Week 11
It was an ugly week for the core plays and for my bankroll. The picks weren’t great to begin with and then you add in the Justin Jackson injury in warmups (or on the first snap) and it wasn’t a week worth remembering. Rather than focusing on the negative, let’s get right into this week’s picks.
I was tempted to write up Michael Thomas this week, but I’d like to see him get a full practice or a full complement of snaps before unleashing him as a core play. Instead, I’ll go with the receiver that leads the NFL in receptions (63) and receiving yards (813) in Diggs. He’s been a huge weapon for the Bills this season and sees a nice mix of short and deep targets. This gives him a high floor and a high ceiling. He’s scored double-digit fantasy points in every game this season and has topped 20 fantasy points (DK scoring) four times. This week he takes on the Cardinals in what projects to be the fastest-paced game of the week. You might hear a few mention a cornerback matchup against Patrick Peterson, but that’s honestly a positive these days. Diggs projects to have one of the best WR/CB matchups of the week.
