We’re going right back to the well in Week 11 while believing in the New Orleans Saints defense. These NFL Week 11 prop angles are built far more on the Saints’ strengths and weaknesses than the offense they’re facing, which will be the Philadelphia Eagles in Philly.

No team has a stingier run defense than New Orleans, allowing just 53.67 rush yards per game this season.

Teams typically aim to attack the Saints through the air, as they have no choice. New Orleans lets up the third-most yards per game to receivers, and it’s there we need to focus.

Philadelphia has been one of the best running teams the past few weeks, but it would behoove them to flesh out more passes in this pivotal Week 11 contest.

State Of The Eagles Passing Game

The first pass-catcher to consider has to be rookie DeVonta Smith, who’s been on an absolute tear of late.

Smith caught a second touchdown later in the game and now has three in the past two weeks. The rookie WR leads the team in targets (68) by a sizable margin and is clearly the first place Jalen Hurts looks.

He’s playing nearly 90% of the games and will have plenty of opportunities to build on his promising recent performances.

NFL Week 11 Props: Don’t Sleep On WR2s

If you like an NFL Week 11 prop on a receiver with a lower line, look no further than Quez Watkins. Watkins has usurped 2020 first-round pick, Jalen Reagor, as the second receiver in Philly.

Watkins has actually led all Eagles receivers in playing time in each of the past three weeks. He’s averaging 40.8 yards per game but has been a key downfield threat for this team all season.

If you want a low total in an advantageous spot, consider Watkins, who should have chances for a long reception in this one. His over/under currently stands at only 38.5 receiving yards.
