Week 10 Daily Fantasy Football has come and gone and it’s time to roll into Week 11of your Daily Fantasy Football game..
The scoring was very low in week 10 and the injuries once again hampered my day. However, my cash games did well thanks to Kirk Cousins and Adrian Peterson, who, for whatever reason, were incredibly low owned.
Week 11 brings back the Falcons, who I will be heavily targeting again. The Falcons are playing the Colts led by Matt Hasselbeck. It’s not like Andrew Luck played defense, but I expect Hasselbeck to turn the ball over a bit in this game which will lead to more production from Atlanta.
Finally, this is the last week with byes. I can’t say how happy that makes me.
Well, let’s get into the Week 11 Daily Fantasy Football DraftKings Picks.
Week 11 Daily Fantasy Football: DraftKings Picks
Mark Sanchez, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($5,000)
I’m all about the minimum priced quarterbacks this week and the Sanchize is no exception. With Sam Bradford hurt, this opens up the opportunity for Sanchez to come in and prove last season was no fluke. I did watch the Eagles game a good bit after Bradford went out and the offense looked very good under Sanchez. Granted, he did throw a bonehead pick in the end zone, but that doesn’t bother me. Given the fact that he has been in this system two years now, I think he may be a better fit than Bradford. As far as Fantasy goes, he can’t be worse. I’m in on dirty Sanchez this week.
Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions vs. Oakland Raiders ($5,400)
Yes, that’s right, Matthew F’n Stafford. The game total is projected at 47.5 and unless you have been living under a rock, the Raiders don’t like trying to stop the pass. I mean after all, Rob Ryan was their defensive coordinator many moons ago, so maybe his ghost is coming back to haunt the Raiders. The Raiders also lost Aldon Smith this week so there is no way they can rush the passer. Hopefully, there is some recency bias after Teddy Two Gloves didn’t do much last week and Stafford will go under-owned.
Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons vs. Indianapolis Colts ($8,400)
Guys coming off of the bye week are typically low owned, but I think this week is an exception. I expect a lot of Freeman ownership this week, but I’m not letting that scare me.
Charcandrick West, Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers ($4,500)
In what is a cruel joke by DraftKings, the Charcnado is only $4,500 against the league’s 32nd run defense. Last week no one gave Charcandrick a chance against the big, bad Broncos defense. Let’s just say he put the “D” in Denver. Just like this week he will put the “D” in Diego.
Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons vs. Indianapolis Colts ($9,300)
The Colts are going to have a bad time on Sunday. A week off for Julio can only mean one thing for the Colts secondary. If you are looking for a clever metaphor, I don’t have one except godspeed, Colts defense godspeed.
Danny Amendola, New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills ($4,000)
Amendola has waited patiently for this role. He now gets a shot because Julian Edelman is an actual elf is on the shelf. The price tag is really good and I know, it’s the Bills defense, but I’m not scared. I don’t mind Brandon LaFell here either, but he is $300 more
Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions vs. Oakland Raiders ($7,200)
I like the Lions-Raiders game as much as the Falcons-Colts game as far as high scoring goes. I definitely like to stack my quarterbacks and receivers. Stafford’s salary allows us to get all sorts of creative. The Raiders have had a horrible time defending Calvin in the past and Sunday will not be an exception.
Eric Ebron, Detroit Lions vs. Oakland Raiders ($3,500)
I know another Detroit player against the Raiders. I guess I just want to make it abundantly clear I am targeting this game. The Raiders are 30th against tight ends this season and everyone gets in the end zone against Oakland, save for Owen Daniels. If for some reason Calvin doesn’t go, Ebron gets a large increase in volume. I still like him as the third option in the Lions passing attack.
Davante Adams Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings ($4,600)
Guess which receiver had 21 targets last week? Yup, Davante Adams. Believe it or not, he has had 17 catches over the last two weeks and one of those weeks was against the Carolina Newtons. While Adams has as many touchdowns as I do this season, I expect him to get in the end zone sooner than later with this type of volume. The Vikings defense has been solid and while the Packers offense has looked bad, it’s not like Green Bay is going to run the ball. I like Adams as a sneaky play this week.
Philadelphia Eagles ($3,100)
I’m sticking with the Eagles again this week. The Eagles face Tampa Bay at home and we are hoping with Sanchez at the helm the Eagles offense gets going and the Bucs have to be in catchup mode. If this happens we can expect sacks and turnovers from Jameis Winston.
Other things of Note
- The Thursday night game is a joke played on us by the NFL. If it wasn’t for Fantasy Football there would be no way on God’s green earth I would have this game on TV. I don’t care how the Jaguars have been playing. This game is going to be brutal on the eyes from the players down to the uniforms. Play at your own risk.
- One of the more interesting games is going to be Cincinnati at Arizona. This game has the second highest total of the day at 48. The biggest thing is the revenge game for Carson Palmer. You can bet Bruce Arians is going to make damn sure Carson has a good game. Palmer’s price isn’t horrible at $6,700.
- In tournaments, I will take a shot with Ameer Abdullah. He is only $3,400 this week and the Raiders have allowed at least 170 yards and a touchdown to opposing running backs over the last two weeks. He’s a dart throw but one I like.
Hopefully, my Week 11 Daily Fantasy Football DraftKings Picks will help propel you to victory!
