Assembling a DFS lineup each week helps keep that draft-day feeling alive. Consult our optimal FanDuel lineup for Week 11 if you’d like to keep that feeling alive throughout Sunday’s main slate of games.
QB – Andrew Luck (IND) vs. TEN – ($7,800)
Finding value at the QB position has paid great dividends this year. With the Chiefs-Rams game omitted from the main slate, there’s no QB that jumps out as a must start. Andrew Luck has strung together 6 games in a row of 22+ fantasy points and finally looks like his true form. At an expected 5% ownership, you could be pulling a fast one on the field by owning Luck on Sunday. With such consistency, it’s hard to understand why Luck isn’t gaining more traction.
RB – Saquon Barkley (NYG) vs. TB – ($8,800)
Some plays are just this easy. Saquon Barkley’s averaged 14.6 rushes and 8.4 targets per game. He’s a lock for 100+ total yards against a horrendous Bucs defense. The Giants are finally in a position to score with general ease. Considering the only true dock on Barkley up until this point has been his inability to score multiple times in a game, his ceiling this week is higher than ever before. Enjoy the free space and lock Barkley into your lineups.
RB – Ezekiel Elliott (DAL) at ATL – ($8,400)
Playing an RB against the Falcons is another easy move. Even Nick Chubb cashed in last week producing a lineup winning 34.4 fantasy points. With Ezekiel Elliott factoring into the passing game as much as he is, his ceiling is sky high this week.
WR – T.Y. Hilton (IND) vs. TEN – ($6,800)
Going along with the Andrew Luck play, T.Y. Hilton offers immense upside at potential low ownership. While everyone will consider going back to Ebron because of his recent 3 TD game, Hilton is the player you should most consider rostering. The Titans cornerbacks are not adept at covering speedy, fast shifting receivers. The Colts are playing at home in their dome and history has shown that this is where Hilton shines. His home-road splits are fairly incredible, and Hilton is well due for a breakout game. Take a chance on him this week, there’s a potential pot of gold waiting at the end of this play.
WR – Amari Cooper (DAL) at ATL – ($6,600)
After two weeks of play with Dallas, Amari Cooper looks rejuvenated. He’s scored in one game, seen multiple red zone targets, and been a clear focal point of the Cowboys offense. While most people will choose to play either Elliott or Cooper, you could gain serious leverage by rostering both. With Prescott in an elite matchup, it’s not out of the question for the Cowboys to excel by great lengths. Given the concentrated attack of Prescott, Elliot, and Cooper, you can guarantee a heavy majority of the Cowboys production by playing both guys.
WR – Kenny Golladay (DET) vs. CAR – ($6,400)
With Marvin Jones out this week, Kenny Golladay is the only Lions starting receiver left to play this Sunday. The Panthers are red hot and a serious force to be reckoned with. Stafford should be airing it out to try and keep pace with Carolina’s potent offense. As the only receiver holding rapport with Stafford, it’s hard to see Golladay staring down anything less than double digit targets. The volume is there and so is the game script. Even if the Lions get blown out, Golladay can still salvage a very good fantasy outing.
TE – Ricky Seals-Jones (ARI) vs. OAK – ($5,200)
With the Cardinals in such a good position, Ricky Seals-Jones offers good upside at a relatively low cost. After seeing 9 targets last week, Seals-Jones has averaged 5.8 targets over the past four games, seeing nothing less than 4 on any week. With this kind of modest production, in a great game environment, there are a lot of worse calls that you can make, given how dreadful the TE position is.
FLEX – Dion Lewis (TEN) at IND – ($5,900)
After busting as a chalk RB last week, I’m hopeful enough people will be off Dion Lewis this Sunday. Even with his modest point total against the Patriots, Lewis still saw 20 carries and was on the field for 76% of snaps. With that kind of production, you can expect Lewis to progress towards a higher mean. With the Titans likely to be playing from behind, rostering Lewis with both Luck and Hilton makes for an ideal game stack. Game script should play favorably for Lewis and his chances of catching several passes.
DEF – Cardinals (ARI) vs. OAK – ($4,000)
The Raiders are god awful. They can’t score, and they can barely move the ball. Even the Cardinals are 6-point favorites against them. Pairing DJ and the Cardinals makes for a great game stack. It isn’t featured in this lineup, but there should be plenty of lineups where you play both.
