Cowboys Defense a Strong Week 11 Choice

The Dallas Cowboys Defense makes for a strong addition to a Week 11 fantasy lineup. The Cowboys defense has been a bit more hype than performance so far this season, but Week 11 lines up as a good one. Taking on the Detroit Lions, who could be without quarterback Matthew Stafford, the Cowboys defense shouldn't... Read More

Brett Maher a Good Choice Like Always in Week 11

Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher is a strong fantasy choice like usual in a Week 11 matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Blake Jarwin Not a Starting Option in Week 11

Dallas Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin does not make for a strong starting option in Week 11. Jarwin actually caught one more pass (three) than Jason Witten last week in a loss against the Vikings, but he was only able to turn that into 35 scoreless yards. The Detroit Lions don't do much in terms... Read More

Jason Witten Not a Great Week 11 Starter

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is not a strong starting option in Week 11.

Randall Cobb Trending Up Heading Into Week 11

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb has been trending up lately and could have another solid performance in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions. Facing a much stronger Vikings Defense last week, Cobb caught six passes for 106 yards and a touchdown and has now caught six passes in two straight games. He'll continue to... Read More

Michael Gallup Set for a Strong Performance in Week 11

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is set up for a strong game in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

Amari Cooper a Top Option Again in Week 11

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper makes for an excellent fantasy starter in Week 11. Cooper and the Cowboys take on the Detroit Lions and their giving defense one week after Cooper caught 11 passes for 147 yards and a score against a much stronger Vikings secondary. Cooper should have an excellent game with an... Read More

Tony Pollard Not a Starter in Week 11 Lineups

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard remains one of the league's best handcuffs, but he is not a starting option despite that excellent upside. Pollard has received just four carries in the past two games and is firmly behind three-down back Ezekiel Elliott. The Detroit Lions Defense is generous to opposing running backs, but... Read More

Ezekiel Elliott Should Bounce Back in Week 11

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott should have a strong bounce back week in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions. Elliott was shut down by the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10, running for just 47 yards on 20 carries. The Lions Defense does not offer that kind of performance, so Elliott and the Cowboys offense...

Dak Prescott a Great Choice in Week 11 Lineups

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is a great starting option in Week 11 fantasy lineups. Prescott is coming off a strong 397-yard performance last week and gets a Detroit Lions Defense that has been very generous to opposing quarterbacks. Prescott has emerged quite a bit this season and proved it last week when he led... Read More

Eagles Defense Not a Good Week 11 Fantasy Option

The Philadelphia Eagles Defense is not a recommended defensive unit for fantasy lineups in Week 11.

Jake Elliott a Lower-End Kicking Choice for Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott is a lower-end kicking option in Week 11. With the Eagles hosting the New England Patriots and not expected to be able to do much offensively, Elliott may not get too many chances to kick the ball this week. While occasionally good defenses lead to strong fantasy kicking performances because... Read More

Dallas Goedert Could Be a Sneaky Value Pick in Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert could have some sneaky DFS value in Week 11. Taking on the New England Patriots and their league-shaking defense, the Eagles as a team are expected to struggle to score and move the ball. If Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is forced to miss the game, however, Goedert could become the... Read More

Zach Ertz an Okay Option in Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is just an okay option in Week 11.

Mack Hollins Not Worth Considering for Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Mack Hollins is not worth even thinking about as a starter in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Nelson Agholor Not Much of an Option in Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is not a strong option in starting lineups for Week 11.

Alshon Jeffery Not a Strong Option Even if Healthy

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is considered day-to-day according to coach Doug Pederson.

Darren Sproles Not an Option in Starting Lineups for Week 11

Miles Sanders Not a Great Option in Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders makes for an unexciting, low-upside choice in Week 11. The Eagles will host the New England Patriots and their elite defensive unit.

Jordan Howard Has a Tough Matchup in Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard is facing a tough matchup in Week 11. The Eagles will host the New England Patriots and their elite defense.

Carson Wentz Could Have a Tough Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz could have a tough time in a Week 11 matchup with the New England Patriots. Besides the elite New England defense, Wentz could be working with the always-overmatched Nelson Agholor as his WR1. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) out for the season and Alshon Jeffery (ankle) considered day-to-day, the Eagles offense... Read More

Adam Wainwright Back in St. Louis for the 2020 Season

The St. Louis Cardinals re-signed starting pitcher Adam Wainwright to a one-year contract.

Cowboys Defense Struggles Against the Vikings in Week 10

The Dallas Cowboys Defense wasn't great in a Week 10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. They allowed 28 points and did not record an interception or a fumble recovery.
