NFL Week 11: DraftKings NFL Picks and Fanduel NFL Picks
This week features three games with a projected total over 50 points: Texans at Ravens (51.0 Total), Falcons at Panthers (50.5 Total) and the Saints at Buccaneers (50.5 Total). We have a few snoozers on the slate as well with the Bills at Dolphins, Broncos at Vikings and Jets at Redskins all projected to score under 40 points.
As always, check back on Sunday and follow us on twitter @theDFSpost for updates closer to kickoff. With all that being said, here are our NFL Week 11 picks for the 11 game main slate as it stands right now:
DAK PRESCOTT – I’ve admittedly haven’t rostered Prescott all season but that’s changing this week. The Lions are 29th against the pass on the year and Dak is coming off a massive 397yards 3TDs week 10 against the Vikings. I’m not expecting the same production as they probably will get out to an early lead but that lead will come off 2TDs in the first half.
JAMEIS WINSTON – A staple in my weekly lineups and he’s been averaging over 24DKFPPG over his last three games. Yes he is going to turn the ball over but he’s also going to throw 2TDs and easily eclipse 300 yards passing. The Saints play fast and the Buccaneers will be playing from behind. That’s a recipe for 4x.
KYLE ALLEN – Kyle is growing into his role as the starter and when you look at his last three games (against the 49ers, Titans and Packers) he’s done well taking into account those defences. Now he gets to take on one of the weakest secondary’s in the league, the Falcons, in what should be a high scoring game. He’s isn’t going to light up the boxscore but he should be able to get you 4x with a minuscule salary to help fit in a stud elsewhere.
EZEKIEL ELLIOTT – My top pay up option for Week 11. He’s against the worst rushing defence in the league and the ‘Boys are 7 point favorites. Elliott has a pretty clear path to 25 touches, 100 yards rushing and at least 1 TD. It wasn’t long ago that he dropped 29DKFP two weeks in a row and that’s something he can pull off once again in this matchup.
JOSH JACOBS – If you don’t want to pay up to Elliott then Jacob’s is the next best play. The Bengals defence gives up a league high 173yards rushing and considering the Raiders are double digit favorites thats another recipe for 25 touches, 100 yards rushing and at least 1 TD. He’s a lock in my lineups.
BRIAN HILL – With the injury to Devonta Freeman the backfield will be all Hill’s for this week. The Panthers give up 5.2 yards per carry (32nd) and 136.7 rushing yards per game (29th). Hill picked up 20 carries in week 10 and he should get that, if not more, this week. Take the salary savings.
ALSO CONSIDER: TEVIN COLEMAN
Now I always like to stack my QB with a WR so you’re going to play DJ MOORE (i’ll be playing him no matter what), MIKE EVANS, CHRIS GODWIN, AMARI COOPER, MICHAEL GALLUP. If you want to save some salary then look at RUSSELL GAGE who is the clear #2 option with Hooper out and is pretty much minimum salary. Other players you can look at this week include JOHN BROWN, DEEBO SAMUEL (If Sanders is out), TERRY MCLAURIN, MOHAMED SANU and TYLER BOYD.
DARREN WALLER – For those who only look at the box score, they will see Waller has struggled but his usage is one of the best among all tight ends. The Bengals are vulnerable against the pass and considering how weak TE’s are this week and how much value is already available, Waller is your top pay-up option.
ERIC EBRON – He’s had a slow start to the year but last week he played as a slot receiver rather than a TE and it came close to paying off. He ran 33 passing routes compared to 22 for Jack Doyle and he played on 61% of the offensive snaps. With Hilton out again and Doyle being the primary blocking TE this could be another good week for Ebron.
JARED COOK – He Saints are projected to score close to 30 points and Cook saw a solid 10 targets last week. Paying up for Thomas is going to be tough so Cook is the next best option to get exposure to this game. The Buccaneers defence ranks bottom five in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns allowed to opposing TE’s.
