Not much “unexpected” came out of Week 11 as the usual culprits continued to put huge performances on the board. Justin Herbert to Keenan Allen but together their normal 65+ fantasy point performance while Dalvin Cook notched another 100 yard rushing game.
Two wide receivers led the DraftKings Week 11 main slate in scoring. Along with Allen (38.5 DK FP | 26.5 FD FP), Adam Thielen (35.3 DK FP | 28.3 FD FP) put together an 11 catch, 123 yard outing with two touchdowns.
On FanDuel, Deshaun Watson (31.36 FD FP) was the leading scorer on the main slate while he was also the best quarterback play on DraftKings.
Justin Herbert was the second best quarterback on both sites with 30.74 DraftKings fantasy points and 27.74 FanDuel fantasy points.
The value play of the week came from a New England wide receiver, but it was not the highly owned Jakobi Meyers. Damiere Byrd ($3,500 DK | 5,300 FD) had a career came with six catches for 123 yards and a score, good enough for 29.3 points on DraftKings and 23.3 points on FanDuel.
Let’s take a look at how our coaches picks went in Week 11!
With one of the easiest calls on cash game play, each coach’s selection was Cook who dropped 29.4 DK FP and 22.9 FD FP. Not much more to analyze here.
For favorite tournament play, @bellmar21’s call of Diontae Johnson continued to rack up an insane amount of receptions as he tallied 26.1 DK FP and 17.1 FD FP. Both Chase Claypool (15.9 DK FP | 13.9 FD FP) and Mike Davis (15.9 DK FP | 14.9 FD FP) also had solid outings.
@snoopAloop_3 and @VGo07 had the best preforming stack of the week with the Chargers. Pairing Herbert and Allen with one of Mike Williams, Hunter Henry or Kalen Ballage put to on track to one of the best team stacks of the week. The highest scoring three-man stack of the week was Cousins, Thielen and Cook who put up 91.8 DK FP. Steelers were also a viable team stack with Ben Roethlisberger, Johnson and Claypool.
Full out game stacks were not as high as past weeks, but @snoopAloop_3 tabbed Green Bay and Indianapolis as his favorite of the week. Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams were the targets for the Packers while Phillip Rivers, Michael Pittman and Jonathan Taylor were the high scorers for the Colts.
@KyleDillard20 also had a great call on a Minnesota and Dallas game stack with Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott being the main players to run it back with.
For touchdown calls, @KyleDillard20’s choice of Taysom Hill scored twice while @HQGolfGuy (Alvin Kamara) and @bellmar21 (Keenan Allen) each got one touchdown out of their picks.
Hill was the best value call of the week on both sites, despite being eligible at different positons. As a quarterback on DraftKings he tallied 25.42 points while on FanDuel he netted 24.42 points at the tight end position.
