SuperDraft Playbook & Example Lineups - Week 11
Steve Pimental takes us through his NFL SuperDraft Playbook & Example Lineups for Week 11
Week 10 was another loss for my SuperDraft cash lineup, but it couldn’t have been much different from Week 9. In Week 9, nearly every player scored at least 30 fantasy points. Of course, Adam Thielen put up a goose egg, so I finished just shy of the cash. Last week, I only had one player top 20 fantasy points. That player was Christian Kirk , who, thanks to his 1.7X multiplier, scored 62.56 fantasy points. He was nearly enough to get me into the cash, but I probably needed more than 13.78 fantasy points from Drew Brees . Let’s hope I make a better choice at quarterback in Week 11.
Dak Prescott X1.25
I don’t think you can go wrong with Lamar Jackson or Deshaun Watson , but I’ll happily take Dak’s higher multiplier against the Lions. Prescott has at least 20 fantasy points in eight of his nine games, including each of the last five.
Tom Brady X1.4
The Eagles’ pass defense has been problematic all season, and Brady should be pretty safe coming off the bye. I doubt the Patriots will even try to run much against Philly’s stout front, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Brady tops 50 pass attempts for the first time this season.
Carson Wentz X1.55
I think enough people will be scared off by the matchup that Wentz’s ownership will be pretty low. Wentz is by far the best quarterback with a Multiplier of 1.5X or higher, and if he throws for three or more touchdowns, I could see him winning someone a GPP.
Ryan Finley X1.7
If Jeff Driskel starts again, I might be inclined to play him over Finley with the same multiplier. Even though Driskel looked better on Sunday, the Raiders are 29th in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks, which is enough to make Finley an attractive fantasy play.
Josh Jacobs X1.55
The Bengals are 30th in fantasy points allowed to running backs. Jacobs has at least 16.9 fantasy points in four of his last five games.
Marlon Mack X1.55
Mack hasn’t been terrible the last two weeks, but he should benefit from getting Jacoby Brissett back. His multiplier is high for someone with at least 20 touches in five straight games.
It’s crazy how much better than every other running back McCaffrey has been. Atlanta has been a great matchup outside of Week 10, and McCaffrey has at least 25 fantasy points in seven games this season.
Brian Hill X1.9
Hill is nearly a must-play if Devonta Freeman is out. He had 13.6 fantasy points against the Saints last week, and this should be an even better matchup.
J.D. McKissic X1.9
McKissic is playable even if Ty Johnson is active, but he looks like an even better play if Johnson is out. McKissic is averaging 11.6 fantasy points over his last two games, which is great if you get nearly double the points.
Thomas has at least 12.9 fantasy points in every game this season, and while it is tempting to take DeAndre Hopkins and the multiplier, Thomas is just too safe to pass up.
Stefon Diggs X1.4
I don’t understand how Diggs only has 11 targets over the last two games with Adam Thielen out. I think Diggs has a super high ceiling whether Thielen plays or not, but I certainly won’t play him for cash if Thielen is out again.
John Brown X1.5
Brown hasn’t had a breakout game because his quarterback holds him back, but he has been awfully consistent. The Dolphins are not the disaster we thought they were a couple of months ago, but they are still not scary.
Mohamed Sanu X1.7
Sanu scored 19.1 fantasy points in his last game, and I love that ceiling with that multiplier. As I mentioned above, I think this is a good matchup for Tom Brady , and Sanu is one of his only weapons we can trust.
Alshon Jeffery X1.9
Even nursing an injury against the Patriots, Alshon’s multiplier is much too high.
Deebo Samuel X2
Darren Waller X1.3
I don’t really trust any tight ends if George Kittle is out, but Waller has been pretty trustworthy, and we know Cincinnati’s defense is not good. He’s likely my cash play Sunday.
Jared Cook X1.6
Only the Cardinals have allowed more fantasy points to tight ends than the Bucs this season. Cook has a long, proud history of letting down fantasy owners, so I’m hesitant to trust him, but this is such an ugly week for tight ends. I certainly won’t say you can’t play him in cash lineups.
O.J. Howard X1.9
I’m shocked that Howard’s multiplier is so high. It’s not like he had a huge breakout last week against the Cardinals, but there is at least a chance the Bucs lean on him more after he proved what he can do last week. I don’t trust him, but that multiplier is too high to ignore.
Ross Dwelley X1.9
Dwelley didn’t do a whole lot with George Kittle out last week, but he did have seven targets, and he has at least three receptions in each of the last two weeks. This is mostly a bet against Arizona, which has allowed a touchdown to an opposing tight end in nine of its ten games this season. Dwelley is only playable if Kittle is inactive.
