NFL DFS Week 11 Guide: Stacks, Value Games & Everything You Need To Know When Building Your Rosters


Well, week 10 was interesting. DFS scores were on the rise, but it was still a pretty wacky NFL week filled with breakouts and upheavals. We had six wins of 21 points or more. Is this normal? It doesn’t seem right. Either way, if you had the running backs of D’Ernest Johnson and Mark Ingram with one of Jonathan Taylor, Stefon Diggs or CeeDee Lamb, you probably did very well. Oddly, Week 11 plays out in a very similar fashion with some valuable running backs, a few crampons at the top, and renowned wide receivers that you’ll be spending your money on.

With just two teams on bye in week 11, we’re looking at a main roster of 12 games in DFS. According to Caesars Sportsbook, we currently have two games totaling over 50 points with the Colts-Bills just below 49.5. We’re also looking at two double-digit spreads with the Browns -11.5 hosting the Lions and the Titans -10.5 hosting the Texans. What’s so interesting about this specific DFS roster is that while there are 12 games available, nine of them are early on with just three games late afternoon. An additional wrinkle is that the game that should carry the biggest ownership (by far) is the Cowboys-Chiefs, which doesn’t start until 4:25 p.m. ET. Keep this in mind, because if you start slowly at the start of matches, you might want to rotate some of your Cowboys or Chiefs. Speaking of which, let’s start there.

Game Stacks to Target

This Cowboys-Chiefs game currently has a total of 56 points, by far the highest on the slate. On top of that, this game features some of the most popular players in the NFL. He’s going to bring a ton of ownership into DFS this week, and rightly so. Personally, I hope we get something crazy like this Chiefs-Rams Monday Night Football game of 2018 where the two teams combined for 105 points. When you create cash queues this week, don’t worry about ownership and target as much of this game as you feel comfortable with. In single entry and maximum three tournaments, you can still target this game but maybe find a few ways to be different. If you play widefield MME tournaments you might just want a few pieces of this game or you can target running backs as leverage in case it is a slower and faster style game.

At the top, Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott are too cheap on DraftKings this week, especially Mahomes. I think Mahomes’ pairing with Tyreek Hill and Byron Pringle to save a little paycheck will be popular. Pringle costs just $ 3,400 and just finished a game where he played 61% of snaps, a season high. He has 55 yards or one touchdown in four of his last five games. Obviously he won more opportunities and succeeded for Mahomes and the Chiefs. In terms of Cowboys’ returns, I’m either going up to CeeDee Lamb or spending money on Michael Gallup. Don’t be afraid to mix it up, though. Again, a lot of people will be on this game. You have to find ways to be different. Mike McClure from Fantasy Football Today DFS thinks he has found a way.

“CeeDee Lamb will be a real focal point. The other one who I think will be a tournament focal point for me is Dalton Schultz. He dropped a touchdown in the end zone last week and that has totally changed what looked like his box score. Easier said than stopping CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, but that will obviously be the goal of the Kansas City Chiefs. I think Schultz could definitely have a few of those catches. longer 20 to 30 yards in the middle as we have seen him sometimes this season. “

Here are my favorite stacks from week 11:

I know I didn’t mention it in the stacks, but I have to congratulate Cam Newton for only $ 5,100 on DraftKings. He is back. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I have no hesitation in playing him in DFS because he was pretty bad with the Patriots. That being said, he has a great game, good weapons, an upward run, touchdown capital and is likely motivated to take on his former coach in Ron Rivera. On top of all that, it’s inexpensive. Cam is in play alone in cash or with DJ Moore or Christian McCaffrey in GPP.

Attacking the running back position

As mentioned, Week 11 looks a lot like Week 10 at running back. We have a bunch of value carriers on DraftKings and then a handful that we can target at the top for a bigger hike. Let’s start with the value this time. The most obvious chalk game this week will be AJ Dillon. With Aaron Jones injured last week, Dillon had 23 touches, resulting in 128 yards and two touchdowns. If Alvin Kamara can’t go, Mark Ingram will be chalky again and rightly so. Another one I’m going to focus on is Myles Gaskin. My girlfriend Sia Nejad likes to say “friends don’t let their friends play Myles Gaskin”, but the Jets are so horrible on defense. They’re allowing for 4.82 yards per carry and 7.56 receptions per game to running backs this season, both second in the NFL. The Jets also allowed 20 total touchdowns, four more than the Detroit Lions. It is this Wrong. Here are the value options I focus on the most.

  • AJ Dillon, $ 6,200
  • Myles Gaskin, $ 5,700
  • David Montgomery, $ 5,500
  • Mark Ingram, $ 5,400
  • Darrel Williams, $ 5,400 (if Clyde Edwards-Helaire does not return)

Take your pickup to the top, but my favorite is Dalvin Cook. One of those massive games is coming. Cook just scored 118 total yards and one touchdown on 27 touches, but he could have had more. He has 18 red zone opportunities over the past two weeks and according to Rich Hribar, the regression of touchdowns should happen. If Cook isn’t for you, I have no problem playing McCaffrey, Taylor, Nick Chubb or even Joe Mixon in GPP.

Value pass sensors

I’ve told you about Pringle and Gallup before, but Tee Higgins is still way too cheap at $ 5,400 on DraftKings. We’re talking about a receiver with a 25% target share and leading his team with eight red zone targets. He has exactly between 13.2 and 13.8 PPR points over his last three games, which is already earning him his salary. If he gets into the end zone on top of that, it’s an overwhelming game. We often like to target the cheap tight ends in DFS, but it’s not everyday that we find one that is the minimum price. That’s what happens when we’re up to the tight third rope for the Washington football team. That’s right. Not only is John Bates a real human, he plays in the NFL and is someone to target in DFS this week. I’ll let Sia tell you more about him.

Here are my favorite high value receivers:

  • Tee Higgins, $ 5,400
  • Jamison Crowder, $ 4,700
  • Tre’Quan Smith, $ 4,400
  • Michael Gallup, $ 4,200
  • Byron Pringle, $ 3,400

And here are my favorite tight ends:

  • Dan Arnold, $ 4,100
  • Tyler Conklin, $ 3,900
  • Cole Kmet, $ 3,400
  • Adam Trautman, $ 3,300
  • John Bates, $ 2,500

And here is a single entry GPP lineup that I have already built on DraftKings:

Patrick Mahomes, $ 7,600

  • AJ Dillon, $ 6,200
  • Mark Ingram, $ 5,400
  • Tyreek Hill, $ 8,200
  • CeeDee lamb, $ 7,600
  • Byron Pringle, $ 3,400
  • John Bates, $ 2,500
  • DJ Moore, $ 5,900
  • DST KEY, $ 3,100
