FanDuel Quarterbacks - Week 11 DFS Picks

Ben Roethlisberger - QB, PIT @ JAC (FD - $8,000)

It's no doubt that this is a tougher matchup for the Steelers on the road in Jacksonville, but you should be looking to have some exposure to him in GPPs this week. We also have to deal with the proverbial "Road Ben", which references Roethlisberger's splits home vs away over the past few seasons, but its a bit different this season. In his four road games this season, Big Ben has passed for over 300 yards three times, while posting multiple touchdowns in two of those four games. That's some solid production and if you don't mind a bit of risk in tournaments, this would be the spot to go.

Josh Rosen - QB, ARI vs OAK (FD - $6,500)

A few things are true here, Rosen is a rookie quarterback who has been very inconsistent at times this season. Rosen is very cheap this week and up against the Raiders who have the 32nd DVOA versus the pass this season. Truly a mixed bag situation, where you have a quarterback in the ideal spot, but you also have that same quarterback who has yet to show any true upside this season. You should be interested simply for the salary savings he brings, which will allow you to roster nearly any running backs or receivers you want.


FanDuel Running Backs - Week 11 DFS Picks

Ezekiel Elliott - RB, DAL @ ATL (FD - $8,400)

We all saw what Zeke did last week to the Eagles defense and we should be in for much of the same this week against the Falcons. The Falcons come in with one of the worst defenses in the league and 29th DVOA vs the pass, the 31st DVOA vs the rush and the 22nd DVOA vs running backs in the passing game. All of this lines up for Zeke to absolutely dominate the Falcons defense this season and you should be looking to lock him into your cash games this week. He has plenty of usage in the passing game in recent weeks, so if the Cowboys fall behind in this game he will see plenty of fantasy points.

David Johnson - RB, ARI vs OAK (FD - $7,900)

DJ is finally being used correctly in the Cardinals offense which is great for fantasy owners everywhere. We have seen his price jump up after his solid performance last week against the Chiefs and if he is going to be seeing more and more usage, his price will go up again. This could be the last time we get him this cheap, putting him a spot to be very popular across the industry. Last week he had 28 total touches with a touchdown in the rushing and passing game. Love the spot for him this week against a bad Raiders defense.


FanDuel Wide Receivers - Week 11 DFS Picks

Sterling Shepard - WR, NYG vs TB (FD - $6,300)

Shepard only had three targets last week against the 49ers, which was his lowest total of the season. He still played on 95% of the snaps last week, so a bit of bad luck based on his true role in the offense. He comes in with one of the best matchups on the slate since he will be facing off against the Buccaneers pass defense who are 30th DVOA vs the pass this season. Shepard will also see plenty of Bucs corner M.J. Stewart who is giving up 0.77 fantasy points per route covered this season.

Michael Thomas - WR, NO vs PHI (FD - $8,800)

MT is simply the best receiver in the league this season and you should be doing whatever you can to get him in any of your lineups this week. He is averaging 9.7 targets per game this season while posting 105 yards per game. He comes in with 26.5% market share of targets, showing he is the go-to option for Drew Brees, thus meaning all of the fantasy points. This game has an over-under set at 56, which is highest on the slate, so you want to be getting exposure to this game in any way you can.


FanDuel Tight End - Week 11 DFS Pick

Zach Ertz - TE, PHI @ NO (FD - $7,600)

Much like Michael Thomas, Ertz is the best player at his position this season and with him averaging 11 targets per game, you're going to want some heavy exposure to him this week. Based on what is generally optimal for cash games, paying up for a tight end is not the way to go, so Ertz is more of a GPP play. You 100% need some players in this game since the expectation for fantasy points in this one is massive. The Saints have the 28th DVOA versus the pass, putting Ertz in a spot to absolutely feast.


FanDuel Defense - Week 11 DFS Pick

Carolina Panthers at Detroit Lions (FD - $4,000)

The Panthers are going to be one of the more popular options simply for their potential for points. That is because the Lions' offensive line is simply terrible and haven't been able to protect Matt Stafford in recent weeks. Stafford was sacked 10 times two weeks ago against the Vikings and six times last week versus the Bears. Pressure on the quarterback can lead to turnovers, which all lead to fantasy points.
