NFL DFS Preview: Week 11


Each Friday, FindBet will preview the week's DFS slate, highlighting players that are priced well on FanDuel, as well as some contrarian plays that can push your team to the top of the leader board.

Most NFL FanDuel games have you putting a team together with players from a certain slate of games. It could be just Sunday 1:00 PM games or it could be every game that is slated for the week.

Once the last game that has eligible players is over, the final payouts are made according to how many fantasy points each team scored. Each player is worth a certain dollar amount, and you have a cap of $60,000 to build your team with. You have to have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, or TE) and 1 DEF.

The general scoring rules include (6) points for each rushing and receiving touchdown, (4) points for each passing touchdown, (0.1) points for each rushing and receiving yard gained, (0.04) points for each passing yard, and also (0.5) points for each reception. There are other scoring opportunities for defenses. You can see the entire breakdown on FanDuel. Let's take a look at players we like this week.

Players to Target:

Justin Herbert (QB) - $8500

Herbert gets the lowly Jets this week and he's shown he can hang points against better defenses earlier in the season. He's an under the radar DFS play this week.

Nick Chubb (RB) - $8100

Chubb returned to action last week and showed why he is still one of the best RBs in the league against the Texans. He had over 100 yards and a TD, and could've had a bigger day if he hadn't stopped short of the endzone on a long run in the 4th quarter. Cleveland gets the Eagles this week.

Le'Veon Bell (RB) - $5500

This is a bit of a risky play and requires you to follow Clyde Edwards-Heliare's health as the week continues to unfold. If CEH is out with an illness for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Bell could have a monster day for a massively discounted price.

Justin Jefferson (WR) - $6700

Jefferson continues to be one of the most electric rookie WRs in the NFL this year. The Vikings get the Dallas Cowboys terrible defense this week. Jefferson should continue to produce in Week 11.

JuJu Smith Schuster (WR) - $6500

Are we witnessing a JuJu rejuvenation in Pittsburgh? He's had 60+ yards and a TD the last two weeks. The Steelers get the Jaguars this week and Smith-Schuster has the chance to continue to produce.

Tyreek Hill (WR) - $8500

Hill gets a Raiders defense that may be playing with all 2nd and 3rd string players this week due to Covid-19 exposures. Even with the Raiders starting defense on the field, he still has a great matchup.

Jared Cook (TE) - $6100

Cook has been a disappointment for fantasy and DFS players this year. Drew Brees is sidelined for at least 2 weeks with rib injuries. Jameis Winston takes over as the starter and he has always targeted TEs in the pass game in his time in Tampa Bay. Cook is a high risk, high ceiling play this week.

JD McKissic (RB) - $5600

McKissic had 15(!) targets last week in the pass game from Alex Smith. With Fanduel's scoring settings, he is a god play this week if he continues to get that volume in the passing game.

Los Angeles Chargers (DEF) - $4500

We love to beat up on the Jets here in this DFS blog, and that tune won't change this week as the Chargers get a Joe Flacco led Jets team for another week.
