NFL Week 11 DFS Lineup Strategy
Put your trust in the Texans' superstar rookies in Week 11 along with doubling down on the Lions' potent backfield duo. As for some young wideouts to produce this week, look at Romeo Doubs and Jaxon Smith-Njigba in positive matchups to round out your Sunday squad.
QB C.J. Stroud (HOU) Salary: $7,000
Is there a better rookie in any sport at the moment that is playing better than C.J. Stroud? The Texans have a winning record while C.J. has thrown for 6 TDs and just 1 INT in his past two games.
With Arizona’s defense allowing over 26 PPG, this is a matchup Stroud should dominate in, especially with the potential of becoming a shootout between two of the top young QBs in the NFL.
RB Jahmyr Gibbs (DET) Salary: $7,000
Bank on another rookie to make an impact this week as Jahmyr Gibbs takes on the Chicago Bears in a plus matchup. The Lions playmaker has seen 17 or more touches in his past three games while becoming an incredible threat as a receiving back (130 receiving yards in those 3 games).
Similar to Arizona’s defense, Chicago also allows 25+ PPG to opponents and will have their hands full all day with this Lions offense that has too many weapons to account for.
RB David Montgomery (DET) Salary: $6,500
If we take Gibbs and the Lions' ground game, why not double down with David Montgomery? In five healthy games, Monty has scored seven touchdowns while hitting the 100-yard marker three times.
It’s no secret that this Lions backfield is the best one in the league with two top 10 players at the position. With a positive game script, we love doubling down on the most prolific backfield in football that should see a combined 30+ touches.
WR Deebo Samuel (SF) Salary: $6,300
After Week 10, we can confidently say that Deebo looks fully healthy and is a trustworthy play against the Bucs this week. On DraftKings, Tampa ranks 29th against opposing wideouts and with the Purdy/Deebo connection coming back to life, bank on the 49ers all-around playmaker to lead this team to victory.
Also, beware that with the 49ers nearly guaranteed a playoff spot, Shanahan and company might limit CMC’s carries leading the way for Deebo to get more red-zone touches.
WR Tank Dell (HOU) Salary: $5,900
We continue to ride the Stroud/Dell combo in Week 11 against an Arizona secondary lacking in playmakers. Dell saw a career-high 14 targets last week in a massive win against the Bengals and comes into the 2nd half of the season hitting the 78% snap share three games in a row.
Dell is now a solidified starter and with Stroud’s massive arm, expect a few deep targets his way all game.
WR Romeo Doubs (GB) Salary: $5,200
The touchdown-scoring machine Romeo Doubs makes an appearance in our DFS Week 11 lineup. With the Chargers allowing a league-high 291.2 pass yards per game, this is shootout material, with the main beneficiary being Love’s favorite red zone target in Romeo.
JLove has found some rhythm post-bye week, scoring six TDs and throwing for over 20 completions in those four matchups.
TE Trey McBride (ARI) Salary: $4,400
Trey McBride season is officially here. The 2nd year, highly touted Cardinal tight end has seen 28 targets, caught 21 passes, and scored once in his past three games while commanding a 69%+ snap share in each contest.
With Kyler Murray back in action and the Cards facing a potent Texans offense, expect McBride to finish as a top 5 tight end this week.
FLX Jaxon Smith-Njigba (SEA) Salary: $4,300
JSN is slowly coming around since Seattle’s bye, scoring twice and hitting the 48-yard mark four times in five games.
With Geno looking for the short gains more often than last season, look for JSN to be a red zone factor and 3rd down assassin against the Rams who are struggling to find stops and wins on the defensive side of the ball.
DST Jaguars Salary: $3,400
With the Jags' offense stalling the past few weeks, their defense has and will pick up the slack. Minus the San Francisco rout, Jacksonville has only allowed 25 or more points once and has averaged 2 takeaways per game (T1 with PIT).
Facing a Titans offense led by a rookie with limited options around him, expect a low-scoring affair with a handful of takeaways for a quick and relentless Jags unit.
