This is it, folks. The epitome of the NFL season has arrived in the form of NFL Football and food. Thanksgiving is the time of year for us to remember what gives us joy; fulfillment, hope, and Fantasy Football. Let’s try and make this week your best of the season with our Week 11 DFS Lineup suggestions.
There is plenty of Fantasy goodness to be had in Week 11 but with only three games with a projected point total of 49 points or more, lineups may be a bit chalky. The QB position may be one of the few weeks the majority of folks spend up rather than looking for value. Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger all look to be potential difference makers, in both cash and in tournaments.
The RB position has a few more options than QB but not as many value plays as we’re used to seeing, unfortunately. C.J. Prosise leads the way in terms of value but one of LeVeon Bell, David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott will most likely be the majority of lineups.
If you’re looking for a pivot at RB, you may want to turn to LeSean McCoy, Spencer Ware, Theo Riddick, LeGarrette Blount or Jordan Howard. Ware and McCoy are my top two in this group followed by Howard but Blount has the prime matchup.
A sincere Happy Thanksgiving to all you Fantasy Football fans out there. Hopefully your Week 11 DFS Lineups net you enough currency to buy you, your family or the charity of your choice a delicious meal. A Thanksgiving pro tip to all the first time cooks out there. Just worry about making sure the turkey isn’t dry. Stop worrying about the sides so much. No one cares how good the rolls are if the turkey is a flop. Make sure it’s a moist maker to remember.
Week 11 DFS Lineup Suggestions
Week 11 DFS Lineup: DraftKings – Cash Games
I can’t lie to the readers. Playing Colin Kaepernick in cash games against a competent NFL team makes me a little gaggy. Trusting him is going to be difficult and it wouldn’t surprise me if ultimately I panic immediately before kickoff and switch to Marcus Mariota, Kirk Cousins or Andrew Luck. Kaepernick has been productive and will likely put up a solid point total in some garbage time vs. the Patriots.
C.J. Prosise is too valuable to pass up this week. Yes, it’s chalk. Chalkier than the Necco Wafers your Grandma gives you year in and year out. He’s underpriced, Christine Michael is long gone and he catches passes. I could see fading him in tournaments but you should have him in at least some of your cash games.
LeVeon Bell is playing against the Cleveland Browns. Is there actual analysis needed here?
Antonio Brown and A.J. Green are the top two WR plays on the board. Some will tell you the Bills have had success against Green in the past but those Buffalo teams had a much better secondary than the current cluster of game avatars stuck running in place against a wall somewhere.
The riskiest play in my cash game lineup this week is Tyler Lockett. I’m basing my Lockett selection on four things:
- Russell Wilson is finally healthy again
- Lockett has passed the eye test the last two weeks. He looks healthy again.
- Coach Pete Carroll praised Lockett this week saying, “He’s flying again.”
- Lockett was a popular play to the start the season but his ownership percentage is in the tank right now.
Martellus Bennett is the best value at TE this week in Daily Fantasy Football. Rob Gronkowski did not fly with the team this week which puts the Black Unicorn in prime position to outscore his price.
Everyone on the planet expects the Pittsburgh Steelers to drop Fantasy bombs on the Browns this week, myself included. The Browns best chance of winning this game is by slowing it down in order to keep the score reasonable. The Steelers are secretly horrible against the run and Crowell is a fine play at his price. With a TD, Crowell could easily triple his price.
Week 11 DFS Lineup: FanDuel – Cash Games
Captain Kirk Cousins has one of the best matchups of Week 11 in DFS. The Green Bay Packers secondary is Swiss cheese at the moment and isn’t healthy enough to suggest it will improve any time in the near future.
I’m a sucker for Prosise on both DraftKings and FanDuel but you can make a case for fading him on FanDuel because of the difference in PPR scoring. If you aren’t going with LeVeon this week, then might I susggest LeSean McCoy, Ezekiel Elliott and Spencer Ware. Personally, I’m going with David Johnson for the TD potential.
Johnson’s ownership could be the lowest it will be all season because of the matchup with the mighty Vikings. At first glance it looks like a stay away but look closer and you’ll see RBs have been running up a storm vs Minnesota as of late.
FanDuel is all about projecting TDs and there are few players in the position Mike Evans is for Week 11. He’s the main target in what could be a relatively high scoring game, with the Kansas City Chiefs best corner out.
No Gronk in Week 11 so Brady’s balls have to end up in someone’s hands. Why not his BFF, Julian Edelman? If you’re not a Martellus Bennett fan or like Jordan Reed this week at TE, Edelman provides a solid alternative at a great price.
As bizarre as it is to admit, the Titans offense has looked fantastic lately. Delanie Walker should benefit if in fact DeMarco Murray’s toe is becoming an issue.
