This is my second week now giving out my best DFS plays, and if you took my entire lineup from last week you would’ve been in the money in most contests. I gave out some HUGE picks last week, including Justin Fields, Saquon Barkley, Cole Kmet, Jamaal Williams, and the Giants' Defense. I’ll be looking to repeat that same success here in Week Eleven, and if you want to play along you can do so by checking out any of these online casinos.

The player values I will be using are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Best DFS Quarterbacks Week Eleven

Joe Burrow ($6800)

After a slow start to the season, Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals have been on a bit of a hot streak recently, winning three of their last four, scoring 30+ points in each of those winning efforts. On a more personal level, Burrow himself has been playing incredibly well in the Bengals’ last four games and has a great opportunity to keep that streak rolling here in week eleven against a struggling Steelers secondary. The Steelers have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing QBs so far this season, and quarterbacks have been averaging 275 yards and 1.89 touchdowns against them. I think Joe Cool will get the best of the Steelers in this divisional matchup.

Best DFS Running Backs Week Eleven

Brian Robinson Jr ($5300)

I’m giving you great value here at RB, especially considering the fact that BRJ could be the highest-producing RB of the week. He saw a career-high 26 carries last week in the Commanders' win over the Eagles and scored 14.6 fantasy points thanks to an 86-yard/1 touchdown performance. I think the Commanders will continue to run a run-heavy offense here in week eleven, especially considering their opponent: the Houston Texans. The Texans have the worst rush defense in the NFL, and by a wide margin. Opposing running backs score an average of 27.33 points against the Texans every week, and the next closest team to them (the Chargers) only allow 24.67. While Robinson will still have to compete with Antonio Gibson for carries, his 26 carries last week gives me enough faith that he will be an integral part of this Commanders’ offense here in week eleven. 

Miles Sanders ($6900)

Coming off of a bad week, I understand if you’re skeptical of my Miles Sanders pick here. However, if you take a closer look at the Eagles as a whole this week I think you can find a lot of value in their players, especially at running back. Sanders only saw the ball 12 times last week, which is the second-lowest amount of carries he’s seen all season. This is mostly because, well, the Eagles were losing, and were forced to pass the ball. I don’t expect that to happen here in week eleven, considering the Eagles are facing off against the Colts, who are, well, a mess. The Colts are amongst the bottom half of the league in terms of rush defense (12th worst) and have allowed 91.6 yards to opposing running backs all year. And while Sanders only saw 12 carries last week, he was still very efficient, rushing on average for 4.5 yards per carry. I think the Eagles and Sanders will get back to their winning ways here in week eleven. 

Best DFS Wide Receivers Week Eleven

Darius Slayton ($5000)

Is there a weirder team in the NFL than the New York Giants? Them being good this year is one of the great mysteries of the world, up there with the construction of the pyramids and how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop. But if theirs one thing for sure about the Giants, it’s that they lack playmakers in the passing game–well, until Darius Slayton decided to show up. Slayton has at least 58 yards in four of his last five games and a touchdown in two of his last three. In last week’s win over Texans, Slayton was on the receiving end of a 54-yard bomb from Daniel Jones that resulted in a touchdown, which proves that Slayton’s big-play ability is still around. The Lions have one of the worst pass defenses in the league, so the typically rush-heavy Giants may look to exploit this here in week eleven. 

CeeDee Lamb ($7500)

Lamb has been unstoppable recently, scoring 10+ fantasy points in each of his last five games and scoring 41 in his week 10 matchup against the Packers alone. In that game, Prescott targeted Lamb 15 times, which resulted in 150 yards and two touchdowns for the star receiver. I think he’ll be able to build off of this best showing of the season in a favorable matchup against the Vikings on Sunday.

Donovan Peoples-Jones ($4600)

Until he proves me otherwise, I’m going to keep on riding with my boy DPJ in DFS. He continued his streak of utter consistency in week ten, catching 5 balls for 99 yards (which resulted in 14.9 fantasy points). He has at least five targets in five of his last six games, and has amassed 70+ receiving yards in five of those six as well. He is the modicum of consistency when it comes to Fantasy wide receivers, and I expect that to continue here in week eleven against a Bills team that all of a sudden has to travel to Detroit thanks to some (four feet of) snow. 

Best DFS Tight End Week Eleven

Dalton Schultz ($4300)

After a slow start to the season, Schultz has really come into his own in the last few weeks, averaging 5.7 receptions and 59 yards over his last three games. I think the return of Dak Prescott will do wonders for the remainder of Schultz’s season, and his stock is definitely rising heading into a week eleven matchup against a week Vikings secondary. Schultz also caught the first touchdown of the season last week against the Packers, so he may be looking to keep that streak going here in week eleven. 

Best DFS Defense Week Eleven

New Orleans Saints ($3000)

Gross, I know–but hear me out. The Saints are taking on the Rams here in week 11, who have allowed the most points to opposing defenses all year and by a WIDE margin. On average, defenses matching up against the Rams have scored 15.4 fantasy points. The second-worst team, the Colts, has allowed 12.4 fantasy points. Yikes.

Also, the Saints' defense isn’t that bad to begin with. They allow the 16th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and the 17th most to opposing running backs–so that’s about as middle of the pack as you could get. I’m believing in the Saints here in week eleven, and implore you to do the same.

Week Eleven DFS FLEX Play 

If you take all my picks, it leaves you with a modest $6,600 for your flex play. That’s enough for a talent like Tyler Boyd, Amari Cooper, Gabe Davis, or Cordarelle Patterson, so you definitely have enough money to play around a bit and see what you like best. For the sake of the record, I’ll be going with Devin Singletary ($5800) as my FLEX play. The Bills RB hasn’t been the best as of late, but had a fantastic week ten against the Vikings where he found the endzone twice. The Bills relied on Singletary more as the season went on last week, and I’m looking for that trend to come to fruition this year as well as game days get colder and Josh Allen becomes more and more banged up.
