Value, value, value. It’s the name of the game when playing daily fantasy football. Week after week we browse up and down each positional list as we try to create the perfect DFS lineup. The best value at running back of week 11 very well could be Cincinnati Bengals star rusher, Jeremy Hill.
It’s almost criminal for Hill to be listed at only $4,400 at DraftKings this week, behind the likes of Alfred Morris, Charcandrick West and Derrick Henry, among others. Hill is a touchdown scoring machine – scoring in each of the past three games, where he has also eclipsed double-digit fantasy points.
It’s well known that Hill shares the Cincinnati backfield with Giovani Bernard (also more expensive than Hill). However, Hill has out-carried Bernard in 7 out of 9 games on the season while scoring nearly 30 more fantasy points. Suffice to say, despite Gio being a mild thorn in Hill’s overall upside, he’s the go-to guy in that running game.
Matchup wise, Hill faces a depleted Buffalo Bills front seven – one of only seven NFL teams to allow double-digit touchdowns so far during the 2016 season. Naturally, that bodes well for Hill, who already has six rushing scores on the year.
When looking at running backs to insert into your daily fantasy football lineup, Hill has to be towards the top of the list. He’s a cheap option at only $4,400 and gives you ample amount of cap space to spend on a high-end RB1.
Week 10 saw a ton of elite running backs go nuts and that could very well end up happening again in week 11. However, a great way to pay up for those studs is to save elsewhere. Getting the cheap Jeremy Hill into your lineup does that, and you shouldn’t have to worry about whether or not he’ll produce.
