Are we ready to crush the NFL Week 11 DFS slate? I know the Fantasy Alarm team is ready, so hopefully you've gone through all of the DFS content we've provided this week and you have started building your own lists of players and you're ready to get to work. We've got an interesting slate of game ahead of us, though we do have a lot of marquee names missing this week. We won't get to invest in Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, Patrick Mahomes or Travis Kelce as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Kansas City Chiefs for Monday night's Taylor Swift Bowl nor do we get the potential return of Justin Jefferson as the Minnesota Vikings play Sunday night. I'd mention Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, but that might be too soon for some of you. Nevertheless, we do have a solid 11-game slate with no game in Europe this week and we're ready to, not only attack it, but, as I've mentioned all week, we're going to be focusing on lineup construction in a big way this week. I have employed the help of Jon Impemba and Dan Malin and we're going to get together, discuss how to build a winning GPP lineup and I will share those thoughts with you when the Example Lineups are posted. We've killed it with our cash lineups throughout the entire 2023 NFL season, so we want to focus on GPP tournaments this week. We'll talk games in which we want to invest, correlation of selected players in our lineups and other strategic moves we plan to make this week. For those of you who are members of the #FAmily, you know I always set up a Lineups post way ahead of when I post the actual lineups, so that is where I will add in a "lineup construction thoughts." Be on the lookout for it early Sunday morning. For now, let's narrow down that player pool for you and see who we like the most for NFL Week 11.
With another successful week, comes a number of new subscribers, so before we dive right into the plays, for those who may be new to the Fantasy Alarm #FAmily, here is a rundown of the NFL DFS content you should be studying while creating your winning DFS lineups. Let's start 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.
Again, if you are new to the #FAmily, welcome! All the aforementioned tools are, obviously, at your disposal as well, but please allow me to point you towards more of the content and tools we provide to help you crush your DFS contests each week. It also makes for a nice introduction to our DFS team.
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 Show with me & Jon Impemba, which you can click below and watch as we talk through each position, our favorite plays and even build a lineup on DraftKings. Impemba also does the Value Plays & Contrarian Corner videos so be sure to check that out as well. Also, don't miss out on the complete NFL Weekly Match-Up Report from Britt Flinn (@britt_flinn) and the all-important WR/CB Match-Up Report from JB Barry (@FantasyCoachJB).
If you haven't started bookmarking everything, do yourself a favor and do it now. Yes, that's a lot of content and sure, it can be overwhelming, but these pieces come out throughout the week, so if you're seeing all of this for the first time, just know that it all starts trickling out on Tuesday so you can attack the info steadily rather than get slammed all at once. I would suggest that you go through the NFL DFS Menu and start bookmarking a lot of these pieces for ease of use in the future.
Once you've got all of that under your belt, it's time to look at the Playbook. It usually arrives in the early afternoon on Saturdays which gives you ample time to read through everything, make your notes and begin working on your lineups. On Sunday morning, we will provide you with Example Lineups for both cash games and GPP tournaments on DraftKings and FanDuel, so you have something to compare your own to before finalizing.
Pretty sure that sums up the basics, and as you should know, if you have any questions, we are all available via the Fantasy Alarm Discord Chat, social media and even email, so please do not ever hesitate to ask for help. That's what we are here for.
If you are ready, let's now dive into the Week 11 NFL DFS Playbook!
Don't forget to listen/watch the NFL Week 11 DFS Show with me & Jon Impemba while you build your lineups!
