How is your NFL Week 11 DFS lineup build going? While things probably aren't as cut and dry as they were last week, our path towards building winning DFS cash lineups seems pretty easy after going through our options in this week's NFL DFS Playbook. It starts at the quarterback position where we have one solid pay-up and one pay-down. You can legitimately go in either direction and not miss on your QB, something that is, obviously imperative each week. From there we can decide how we want to attack the other positions. I think one strong pay-up at the running back position is what is needed most as we do have a real nice bargain back we can slide in for salary relief. We can also get some relief at the tight end position. We are being told Mark Andrews is going to play today and, to me, that's the only spot to pay up at the position. Sure, we could slide in a mid-tier guy, but I feel like bargain-shopping at tight end will afford us a better crop of receivers. Then it's just a matter of picking our wideouts from across the varied pricing tiers. I think I've got the two primary directions nailed with the examples, so let's get to our adjustments.

As I've said before, there is more than one way to skin a cat and more than one way to build a winning DFS lineup. I've got some hand-built ones for both cash and GPP tournaments, but, if you have the time, I recommend using the NFL DFS Lineup Generator just to see what the computer has to say. I usually stick with what I've built by hand, but always like to run things by the computer and see if maybe I am overlooking a particular build. Sometimes it will put a player from the Playbook on your radar that you may not have been eyeballing. Sometimes it will show you that you were on the right track the whole time. Again, this is all a guideline and a helpful tool. Not the gospel.



Just a few notes here about the lineups below...

The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.

Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.

Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!

CAR/BAL – strong winds between 15-20 mph

DET/NYG – strong winds between 15-20 mph


As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
