Finding bargains and values in DFS is the key to any winning roster, both in cash games and tournaments. Our goal today is to find you the best bargains for your cash games and tournaments. We will specify what games to use each bargain in and how to capitalize on them in each given week.

High ownership is to be expected from some of these bargains, and we will touch in that in the write up, so they should be used in cash games. However, some of these players are also excellent buys for tournaments and won’t have high ownership percentages. Generally speaking, quarterback is the one position where ownership tends to be spread out the most — in other words feel free using these bargains both in tournaments and cash games.

(Unless otherwise specified, these suggests are for both FanDuel and DraftKings.)

Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

In a hideous Week 11 slate due to the matchups, the bye week teams, and the Thursday game, quarterbacks like Bortles could easily work his way into the high-end QB1 range. Bortles hasn’t scored fewer than 16 points over his last three games and now he draws a Browns defense that has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing QBs. The Browns are also dead last in our pass-rush grade overall and No. 24 in pass coverage.

Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants

Garbage time Eli Manning struck again in Week 11 with a late-game touchdown. With Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram healthy, Manning has the weapons to score and another matchup that should lead to a fourth quarter filled with passes for the Giants offense after falling behind on the scoreboard. The Chiefs defense has struggled all season and they have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs. Manning is near the minimum on both DK and FD.
