Top Daily Fantasy Football Lineups to Use in Week Eleven of the 2020 NFL Season

| November 18, 2020 5:38 am PDT
NFL DFS Lineups for Week 11, 2020

Week 11 is going to be a weird one in NFL DFS. The main slate is without some massive names, as Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson will have already played with their game on Thursday night, and Patrick Mahomes is featured on Sunday night, as well.

Christian McCaffrey also won’t be making his return in week 11, while we already know Drew Brees is out, as well.

We are slowly inching towards having a feel for how to construct our week 11 NFL DFS lineups, but jumping on that process early may be a good idea.

Some waited until late in the week last week, and it backfired, with some of the chalkiest plays hurting us. Eating that chalk is often encouraged in cash games, and it’s true that some value plays are just too good to ignore across all formats.

That said, my goal is to give you two different daily fantasy football lineups to use this week, with an eye on the NFL betting realm, and any outside variables.

With that, here’s a look at my favorite NFL DFS lineups for week 11.

Week 11 Daily Fantasy Football Advice

Before I hand out my top daily fantasy football lineups for cash games and tournaments this week, let’s pause to consider how NFL odds may dictate how we conduct business.

This week is already pretty abnormal, as the NFL odds have been very slow to trickle out. That has a lot to do with the health of some star players, and you’ll want to factor that into the equation, as well.

To get a glimpse of what we’re dealing with this week, start off by checking out my early week 11 NFL betting lines breakdown. This can be helpful if you plan on betting on pro football this week, but also highlights some games that could be good for NFL DFS.

The following stand out the most as we get ready for week 11.

  • Falcons vs. Saints (51)
  • Packers vs. Colts (51.5)
  • Lions vs. Panthers (N/A)
  • Cowboys vs. Vikings (47.5)
  • Titans vs. Ravens (N/A)

This isn’t the week of crazy NFL totals, to be sure. Of course due to injury news and other reasons, two of the games above (that I imagine will be good for DFS) don’t have official totals.

The Falcons vs. Saints game could be straight flames, though. The Packers game total feels a bit high when you consider Indy’s elite defense, but it’s worth noting.

The Lions vs. Panthers game could be a fun one to target, but keep in mind we have injuries to monitor there, too. And I like this Ravens game, even if defenses have seemingly figured Lamar Jackson out.

The best shootouts are in primetime settings this week, but we still have to find areas to attack.

Let’s see the best ways to do that as I break down my favorite NFL DFS lineups for cash games and GPPs in week 11.

NFL DFS Cash Lineup for Week 11

  • QB: Jameis Winston – Saints ($5.9k)
  • RB: Salvon Ahmed – Dolphins ($4.8k)
  • RB: Dalvin Cook – Vikings ($9k)
  • WR: Michael Thomas – Saints ($7.3k)
  • WR: Breshad Perriman – Jets ($4.3k)
  • WR: Jakobi Meyers – Patriots ($4.9k)
  • TE: Logan Thomas – Washington ($3.3k)
  • FLEX: Nick Chubb – Browns ($7k)
  • DEF: Miami Dolphins ($3.4k)

It’s still early, but a lot of the options here feel like good chalk. The first order of business is figuring out what to do with the news that Drew Brees is out.

His absence could obviously hurt the Saints, but it also gives us a value play under center. Jameis Winston came on in relief last week, so he makes sense as the guy that would get the nod.

Winston turns the ball over, but he also puts up big numbers. In a dome with a good system and plenty of weapons – not to mention a date with a suspect Falcons defense – and the floor/ceiling is what you want for all formats.

If Taysom Hill is randomly inserted as the starter, things obviously change. I would also love him, and then you can pay up over a cheap option here.

Michael Thomas is a necessary attachment to Winston or Hill. He has not been productive thus far in 2020, but that is bound to change. Atlanta ranks dead last against quarterbacks and 30th versus receivers on the year, so this matchup is about as good as it gets.

If you’re worried, confide in Vegas. This game has a stout 51 total over at BetOnline, and it’s also projected to be close.

Dalvin Cook and Alvin Kamara are going to be staples of my week 11 NFL DFS lineups, and you can decide who to roll with. Cook had a “down game” on Monday and still finished with 15 fantasy points, so he’s the pick for me.

Cook has the more enticing matchup, too. Dallas has allowed the second-most rushing yards to running backs on the year, and has also given up eight scores. After a mild nap in week 10, Cook should wake up in a big way in week 11.

I’ll drop down and get Ahmed, who put up 16 fantasy points last week and should see more work in week 11. Nick Chubb also looks inviting.

Normally the Eagles are a tough matchup, but that hasn’t been the case lately at all.

Chubb wasted no time getting back to work last week, either. He churned out 21.6 fantasy points in his first game back from a knee injury. He feels like a guy we can’t fade at this price.

At receiver, there’s so much to like, but in a PPR setting, we can roll the dice. Jakobi Meyers is a nice price for a guy who has seen 6+ targets in each of his last four games. The ceiling isn’t amazing, but he did register 31.9 fantasy points two weeks ago.

Perriman doesn’t have the greatest matchup, but he dropped 30 fantasy points in his last game and could be rounding a corner. He’s also just too cheap given his role and upside right now.

Logan Thomas is another guy who is a bit too cheap given his involvement in the offense. He sees about six targets each week and is a red-zone threat. Against a bad Bengals defense that has coughed up the second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends, he feels like an elite value.

I’ll close with Miami, who are known by now to be a very good defense. They keep teams in check, but they could be in for a dream performance against Drew Lock, who can’t stop turning the ball over.

NFL DFS GPP Lineup for Week 11

  • QB: Lamar Jackson – Ravens ($7.3k)
  • RB: Antonio Gibson – Washington ($5.8k)
  • RB: D’Andre Swift – Lions ($6.4k)
  • WR: Marquise Brown – Ravens ($5.8k)
  • WR: Adam Thielen – Vikings ($6.3k)
  • WR: D.J. Chark – Jaguars ($5.7k)
  • TE: Mark Andrews – Ravens ($4.9k)
  • FLEX: Nyheim Hines – Colts ($5.2k)
  • DEF: Atlanta Falcons ($2.3k)

Let’s start things off with a full Baltimore Ravens stack. I think this is a pretty good week to go all-in on Lamar Jackson, as everyone is slamming him, and the Titans are a very beatable defense.

Jackson is better than people seem to think he is.

Jackson himself still has a pretty good floor and a high ceiling, and he’s too cheap for what he’s capable of. In a weird slate where we’re going to find it difficult to trust quarterbacks, we can just believe in him.

Mark Andrews is his steady red-zone threat that is also under-priced when you look at a bad tight end position, and Brown is due for some deep balls to go his way.

Tennessee has allowed the 8th most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2020 and the fourth most passing touchdowns. Add in Jackson’s rushing ability, and he could smash at low ownership.

You can run it back with A.J. Brown or Derrick Henry, but I just like value elsewhere. It starts with a trio of backs in Gibson, Hines, and Swift.

Feel free to make changes and go get Cook or Alvin Kamara, but for tourneys, paying down at running back is pretty appealing.

Hines faces a bad Packers run defense and is fresh off a huge performance, while Gibson and Swift also sport nice matchups and dropped 20+ fantasy points in week 10.

At wide receiver, I’ll add explosive stars in Chark and Thielen around Brown. Thielen scored twice against a very good Bears defense last week, and both of these guys have good matchups this week.

Lastly, feel free to fire up the Falcons defense.

Yes, I love the Saints, but if Winston starts, is anyone willing to bet he won’t throw a pick-six? Atlanta will give up 30 points, but they’ll make up for it in savings and a potential defensive score.

Week 11 NFL Betting

How do my favorite NFL DFS lineups for week 11 play into the world of sports betting? Well, I like the Over in the Falcons/Saints game, I think Baltimore bounces back with a win over the Titans, and I also suspect we could be in for a big upset this week.

That may be attached to the Perriman pick, as the Jets feel like a sneaky underdog play in my week 11 NFL upset picks.

Daily fantasy football doesn’t always correlate with real money betting, but this could be a fun week to bet on the Over. There is a slew of injuries impacting games, and the top betting sites have also set some very low game totals.

I think we get some more fireworks than are being suggested, while some of my other plays (Swift, Chubb, etc.) could lean into their respective team grinding out wins in week 11.

Don’t just roll with that logic, of course. Feel free to hit up our NFL picks page, where we detail every single game and offer our prediction in week 11.
