NFL DFS Lineup Advice & Picks for Week 11

Brandin Cooks is an easy play vs a bad Titans' secondary. Building the best DFS lineup for Week 11 fantasy football.

How was your Week 10 in NFL DFS? Mine was a great week as my DFS lineup was successful in winning a couple of small competitions, scoring 159.04 points, meaning I’m now up on my investment in DFS this season. I hit on a number of players, with my Dak Prescott/CeeDee Lamb stack paying off (55.94 points combined), as well as Jonathan Taylor smashing it again (27.6 points) and Tyler Conklin repaying my value tight end pick with 16.1 points thanks to a pair of touchdown receptions. I’m full of confidence heading into Week 11 and a new DFS lineup. I’ve selected my best DraftKings NFL DFS lineup for the Week 11 Sunday slate of games, breaking down my reasoning for selecting those players and hopefully helping you with your DFS selections for the week ahead.

Note: I’m setting my lineup based on the standard nine player, $50k salary cap setup for the Sunday slate of games, excluding Sunday Night Football.

Quarterback: Dak Prescott @ Kansas City Chiefs ($7,200)

Dak was good to me last week and I’m back on him this week as he faces an even better match up in the Chiefs who are allowing the second most points to quarterbacks. Amari Cooper missing due to COVID protocols adds some risk, but the Cowboys are a stacked offense overall and the fact that the Chiefs’ offense appears to be getting back on track only adds to Prescott’s opportunity this week.

Running Back: Christian McCaffrey vs Washington Football Team ($8,900)

I’m smashing McCaffrey this week as he looks to be back to his pre-injury best. Add in having Cam Newton back and starting as a big win for me as the pair have such a strong history together. Washington are missing key pieces on their defensive line so this feels like a big week in the offing for CMC.

Running Back: David Montgomery vs Baltimore Ravens ($5,500)

Montgomery was quiet on his return to the starting lineup for the Bears last week after missing four weeks but this feels like a value upside play this week. With no Allen Robinson this week, the Bears will lean heavily on Montgomery for their offensive output and I’ll happily buy low for my lineup this week.

Wide Receiver: CeeDee Lamb @ Kansas City Chiefs ($7,600)

Lamb is a chalk play this week with Amari Cooper ruled out but I don’t want to miss out on what should be a target fest. I’m feeling really comfortable stacking Lamb and Prescott again this week

Wide Receiver: Brandin Cooks @ Tennessee Titans ($6,000)

Great match up this week for Cooks against a Titans defense allowing the most points to receivers of any team. He’s the clear number one target in the Texans’ offense and the only viable fantasy play who will continue to benefit from Tyrod Taylor’s return to the team.

Wide Receiver: Marquez Valdes-Scantling @ Minnesota Vikings ($3,700)

No Aaron Jones or Allen Lazard this week means MVS gets a chance to see more playing time and targets alongside Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. His big play ability is what I’m relying on, but when looking for a value play, Valdes-Scantling is exactly what I’m looking for to bottom out my lineup.

Tight End: Tyler Conklin vs Green Bay Packers ($3,900)

Tight end is a very expensive position this week if you want one of the top guys so I’m sticking with Conklin who was money last week. At under $4k, Conklin is an easy start for me this week.

Flex: Dan Arnold vs San Francisco 49ers ($4,100)

This feels a little weird playing a tight end in the flex, but Arnold is has become a favorite target for Trevor Lawrence with at least seven targets in each of the last three games. With touchdown upside, I like Arnold to hit his ceiling this week against the 49ers.

D/ST: Cleveland Browns vs Detroit Lions ($3,100)

The Browns offer good value at their price this week. If you rostered them last week then they burnt you in a blowout loos to the Patriots, but I’m in this week as the matchup against Lions is a really favorable one. With Jared Goff heading towards being a game time decision, we could see some Tim Boyle action and that should have the Browns’ defense licking their lips. The Browns offense should dominate the Lions’ bottom tier defense, and that allows the likes of Myles Garrett to get after whichever quarterback starts for Detroit this week

Who are you rostering in your DFS lineups this week?
