Wow! Week 11 is here and it feels like we were just talking about week 1 yesterday. We have had a lot of success in DFS this season and we’re going to keep that rolling here in week 11. Remember to keep up with last minute injury news and check back here for any updates to player adjustments.
I love the options at QB this week. From top end options to low end options, you will find a QB to fit into your lineup. My favorite play this week is, Cam Newton. Newton has a great matchup against Detroit and after last weeks disappointing game, Cam and the Panthers’ offense should come out firing. Two QB’s fit into my favorite cheap play of the week. Both Dak and Eli have great matchups. Dak is facing a Falcons team that is ranked 31st in fantasy points allowed to QB’s and Eli is facing a Buccaneers defense that is one of the worst in the NFL.
I’m paying up at running back this week. I want 2 studs in my lineup and build around those backs. My favorite play this week is, Ezekiel Elliot. He will shred the Falcons’ defense and should put up huge numbers. I also love Sequon, McCaffrey, and David Johnson. My favorite cheap play is, Alex Collins. The Bangles defense is decimated at linebacker and Flacco looks like a no go this week, which should mean heavy volume for Collins.
Michael Thomas is the top option at wide receiver this week. He has a great matchup against the Eagles and should be in line to receive 10+ targets. However, my favorite play of the week is, Odell Beckham. He should tear up the Tampa secondary and I’m predicting 125+ yards and 2 touchdowns for Beckham this week. My favorite cheap play this week is, Nelson Agholor. The Eagles are going to have throw the ball to keep pace with New Orleans, and Agholor has received 20 targets over Philadelphia’s last 3 games.
There are some good options at tight end this week. I’m paying up here and getting Ertz in everyone of my lineups. If he was a wide receiver, he would be $8000+, but because he’s a tight end, you have to look at him as a discount. He’s elite at the tight end position and puts up huge numbers every week.
I love going with a cheap home team at defense, and that is exactly what we’re doing this week. I have the Saints everywhere in week 11. Do I think they are going to crush it, no. But I think they will get you 7+ fantasy points and they will allow to get more studs in your lineup at the skill positions.
