Our lineup is stack-heavy this week, as we now have a few conventional stacks at QB-WR and RB-DEF. Nevertheless, we additionally went with a contra-stack at RB-WR, as we’re concentrating on a matchup that could possibly be extraordinarily favorable for the Cowboys. We additionally unfold our cash round this time and paid not more than $8,400 for any participant. That allowed us to focus on top-tier gamers at a few completely different positions, and that would repay big-time for this lineup.
Week 11 FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS event lineup
QB Carson Wentz, Eagles @ Saints ($7,700). I like the thought of shopping for low on Wentz right here. He’s simply the eighth-most costly QB on the slate, however he has among the finest matchups towards the Saints. The Saints have struggled to include high-octane passing assaults, and Wentz will likely be compelled to throw lots in a possible shootout. If he can put up 300-plus yards and a number of TDs at this value, he will likely be nicely price it. Plus, saving on the positional ceiling right here permits us to spend up at different positions.
RB Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys @ Falcons ($8,400). The Falcons had been simply dominated by Nick Chubb and the Browns. Chubb ran for 176 yards on simply 20 carries. Elliott ought to have an opportunity to do an analogous quantity of harm contemplating that he simply ran for 151 yards towards a harder Eagles run protection. Elliott is price paying up for, as we’re making an attempt to get high-volume backs and pair them with high-upside receivers.
RB David Johnson, Cardinals vs. Raiders ($7,900). The Cardinals had been lastly capable of get Johnson extra concerned within the offense final week towards the Chiefs, and he touched the ball 28 instances en path to logging 183 scrimmage yards and two scores. The Raiders simply allowed related manufacturing to Melvin Gordon, and if Johnson continues to be the focus of the Cardinals assault, he will likely be one of many higher performs in DFS this week.
WR Corey Davis, Titans @ Colts ($6,200). In consecutive weeks, Davis has seen 10 targets, however final week he exploded for 125 yards and a TD towards the Patriots. He ought to have an opportunity to see related quantity and manufacturing towards the Colts. On the very least, he’ll get an opportunity to catch much more passes, and at this value degree, he is a terrific worth.
WR Amari Cooper, Cowboys @ Falcons ($6,600). Cooper is the clear-cut No. 1 receiver for the Cowboys. He has seen 18 targets since becoming a member of the workforce and has turned them into 133 yards and a TD. As talked about earlier, the Falcons protection isn’t superb, rating backside 5 by way of fantasy factors per sport (FPPG) allowed to WRs. I don’t thoughts the contrarian stack right here between Cooper and Elliott, as each could have loads of probabilities to the touch the ball and energy the Cowboys offense.
WR John Brown, Ravens vs. Bengals ($5,400). Brown is priced absurdly low this week. That will have one thing to do with Joe Flacco’s damage, but it surely doesn’t change the truth that the Bengals have allowed the fourth-most receiving yards to WRs this yr. Plus, final time these two groups squared off, Brown had 92 yards and a rating on 4 catches. That’s sufficient for us to belief him at this bottom-dollar value.
TE Zach Ertz, Eagles @ Saints ($7,600). I needed to stack a pass-catcher with Wentz, and Ertz was my go-to. He’s the costliest TE on the slate and for good motive. Final week, he caught 14 passes for 145 yards and two scores towards the Cowboys. The Saints have been good towards TEs this yr, however Ertz is matchup-proof.
FLEX Kerryon Johnson, Lions vs. Panthers ($6,200). The Lions nonetheless use LeGarrette Blount on the purpose line, however that won’t final lengthy. Johnson scored from the one=yard line towards the Bears final week and added a receiving TD. He ought to get touches towards the Panthers, and although Carolina is nice towards RBs, they’ve given up a few large video games this yr. Both approach, we like Johnson’s quantity and TD upside as a FLEX play.
DEF Arizona Cardinals vs. Raiders ($4,000). The Cardinals sacked the Chiefs 5 instances final week, and this week get a defeated Raiders workforce at dwelling. We’ll take our probabilities on the Cardinals this week.
