Are you ready for the NFL Week 11 DFS Sunday main slate? The NFL may have flexed the Kansas City Chiefs/Los Angeles Chargers game into prime-time, but we still have a number of outstanding option from which to build our lineups, especially with the Buffalo Bills/Cleveland Browns game moved to Ford Field in Detroit. We found success last week by trimming down the NFL DFS Playbook and I am maintaining that game-plan here in Week 11. You'll be able to easily tell which quarterbacks I will be using for my cash lineups and how I want to go about navigating the running back position. I won't guarantee that I hit every single running back like I did last week, but I've given you the pay-up/pay-down structure within the descriptions. The wide receivers and tight ends fit in very nicely once you've established the other two positions, so again, be sure to read everything through. Don't just look at the names and assume everyone is in-play for every contest. Your roster construction will be that much better off.
I don't really have much else to say because it's all in the content below, so put in the work and we'll all reap the benefits together. Here's to a lucrative Week 11 DFS run!
Now, before we get to the Playbook players, allow me to remind you what you should be doing leading up this step in your research.
Step 1: Check out the DFS Position Coaches
Step 2: Check out the rest of the relevant DFS content
In addition to the positional coaching pieces, you also have things like the DFS Watch List, where I provide you with a list of players I am looking at throughout the week. We have the NFL DFS Podcast with me and Jon Impemba, who also does the Contrarian Corner video and check out the DFS Bargains from Tera Roberts (@ItsTeraTime)
Also, our Master of Tools, Matt Selz (@theselzman), supplies you data junkies with the Weekly Match-Up Report and everyone should also be checking out the WR/CB Match-Up Report from Ryan Hallam (@fightingchance).
Speaking of tools, we have also done some major enhancements with our NFL tools. We continue to crunch the numbers and tweak our algorithms so that our daily fantasy football projections are the best in the industry and that, in turn, has improved things like our Lineup Generator/DFS Optimizer, our DFS Compare tool and even our NFL DFS Ownership Projections. Again, all right here on one site for your convenience.
Step 3: Make your own list of players
It's real easy to just sit and wait for the Playbook, but as you are doing your research throughout the week, it is important to make notes and list the players who interest you the most. Maybe they end up in the Playbook and maybe they don't. If they're there, then great, it should mean we are honing in on the same things that make him a strong play. If not, maybe you're onto something else that someone overlooked. We aren't perfect and if you uncover something different, maybe you're right. I would be careful of routine groupthink and hype from beat writers, but often times someone will tell me something they saw about their local team that I missed and I am always looking to investigate more if its there. If you do, then say something in our Fantasy Alarm Discord Chat, Talk it out and see what the rest of the #FAmily thinks. That's why the chat is there, isn't it?
With those three steps complete and discussions are in progress, you are ready to look at the Playbook players, make comparisons and finalize your list for lineups, so let's get to it.
