Daily Fantasy Football: Week 11

Whether you are a DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) fanatic or new to DFS, we are here to help. Each week, the Fantasy 4um provides recommendations and stats for DFS. We'll touch on some H2H and 50/50 value plays as well as give you tournament contest recommendations. Additionally, we'll provide general tips and tricks throughout the season to hopefully help you in your quest for DFS glory. 

Here are our recommended DFS plays for Week 11 based on FanDuel pricing:

Tom Brady ($9,200) is worth the high price tag this week. Tom Brady had 59 pass attempts in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills and threw for 466 yards and three TDs. Brady comes with an 'Eddie Lacy size' floor in Week 11 and more upside than any other QB despite losing Edelman to injury last weekBill and Tom will come up with some way (legal or not) to succeed against their division rival in Week 11. 

Running Backs: 
Charcandrick West ($7,100) had nine carries and one reception in Week 6 for 39 total yards. Since Week 6, "Charmander" has averaged 25 touches, 1.3 TDs, and 137 yards per game. This week, West faces the San Diego defense who has given up a whopping 27.29 FanDuel points per game to opposing RBs, most in the NFL; yet, there are 10 RBs priced higher than him on FanDuel. Why? I don't know. Just take advantage of this opportunity.

Adrian Peterson ($8,900) now has four straight games of over 100 total yards (coming off 216 total yards last week), and eight straight games of 20 or more touches. AP is 30 years old and playing at home against the Vikings biggest division rival. Expect another game with well over 100 yards and at least two TDs this week. 

Wide Receivers:
Danny Amendola ($6,100) - Refer to note about Tom Brady above. Did you know that Edelman and Lewis accounted for 17 receptions, two TDs and almost 200 yards in the Patriots' Week 2 matchup against the Bills? I'm not saying Amendola will put up this stat line, but I think he'll put up some impressive numbers for his price tag.

Larry Fitzgerald ($7,400) has some of the best hands in the NFL. Of WRs playing this week, L-Fitz has the third most FanDuel points per game this season and the fifth most points per game over the last three games. Larry provides good value this week (Note: we're on a first name basis because he went to my high school. Full disclosure: I never met him); indeed, there are 12 WRs priced higher than him in FanDuel. 

Stevie Johnson ($5,600) is my value pick of the week. Steve (as he's known on FanDuel) is going up against a Kansas City Chiefs defense who has managed to give up 38.06 FanDuel fantasy points to opposing WRs, second most in the NFL. Johnson is in line for a lot of targets in Week 11. The Chargers lost their leading receiver, Allen, earlier in the season, and Malcolm Floyd tore his labrum in Week 9. Only two other WRs on the Chargers have seen targets this season: Dontrelle Inman (23 targets) and Javontee Herndon (two targets).

Tight End:
Eric Ebron ($5,400) is going up against the Oakland Raiders defense that is still figuring out what a tight end is. I'm not sure if you've caught onto this trend, but the Raiders cannot cover tight ends. This year, they have given up 15.64 FanDuel points per game to opposing TEs (pretty big sample size I may add), which is 1.84 points higher than any other team that plays this week. Note: the New Orleans Saints and the New York Giants also give up a copious amount of points to opposing TEs, but they are on byes.

Kickers are extremely hard to predict. My blindly thrown dart this week hit Blair Walsh ($4,900)I have a good feeling the Vikings team as a whole will come to play this Sunday against the Packers. More importantly, Blair has been kicking well as of late, and he's not going to break your bank. 

I'm not usually a proponent of paying for defenses, but I am when you have the budget for it and when the matchup is right. If you go with most of my picks above, that will leave you enough money in the bank for Seattle's top priced defense ($5,400). Of defenses playing this week, Seattle has averaged the second most fantasy points (only behind Denver), and they are facing Blaine Gabbert... Yes, the one and only Blaine Gabbert. Moreover, of offenses playing this week, San Francisco has given up the third most fantasy points per game to opposing defenses (and those stats are based primarily on when they were starting a better QB!). I would bet the Seattle defense has at least one pick six on Sunday.

Good luck this week! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Let us know how you do on Twitter (@Fantasy4um)
