FantasyScore DFS Picks for NFL Week 11 (Daniel) PDF Print E-mail

Since I have started writing for Mastersball, I have been giving you readers picks based off who I like to have a big game. The issue with that basic premise is that I have given no strategical backing to go along with my picks. Picking a player to succeed against a certain defense is all fine and well and if 75% of my picks are successful, then you should all benefit. However, there are certain ways of attacking these daily fantasy games and I am taking this chance to reformat my article early in the week.

For starters, I will now group players into categories. These categories will be:

Can't Miss (usually high-priced players that need to be on your team that week)

High Risk (low $ value players with a high ceiling based on the matchup)

Fillers (middle of the road in terms of value and steady production with the possibility of a breakout game)

When putting together a successful DFS team, these three components must all click if you are to win. However, it is possible to still win money on a week to week basis if you build your teams correctly. Remember that to win, you must get good production from the players that others haven't put on their team, those players in the 1-10% owned range.

So here we go with Week 11:

Can't Miss

Todd Gurley ($8200): Going up against the Ravens, the best rookie RB in the league will have a field day. With St. Louis looking to Case Keenum ($4500), Gurley should see plenty of action.

Rob Gronkowski ($8200): Gronk has really cooled off as of late. However, a divisional game without Julian Edelman available will allow the best TE in the league to produce in bunches.

Matt Ryan ($7500): Going up against the soft Colts defense and coming off a bye week, Matty Ice is a solid choice for a big afternoon filled with yards and touchdowns.

High Risk

Mark Sanchez ($6000): Sanchez will definitely get the nod from me in a couple leagues. Last season saw Sanchez flourish in Chip Kelly's offense. This week, going up against the Bucs for his first start of the year should lead to a solid afternoon.

Latavius Murray ($6000): The Raiders RB has had a solid second NFL season and faces off against a vulnerable Lions defense this week.

John Brown ($2400): Going up against the solid Bengals defense, this is a tough matchup for the WR. However, recently Smoky has been superb and with more attention being paid to Larry Fitzgerald ($7900) and Michael Floyd ($6600), Brown should have plenty of opportunities.


Steve Johnson ($5800): The Chargers are lacking in options for quarterback Phillip Rivers ($7700) and Johnson slots in as the top target man. Even if the former Bill doesn't bust out for big points, a solid showing is expected.

Jonathan Stewart ($5600): Nothing sexy about this pick, but facing the Redskins, there will be plenty of running room and Stewart has shown a lot of consistency recently.

I have decided to go with a new look format for all of my daily fantasy picks. After reformatting my NFL picks, I am attacking the way I give NBA advice as well. I will divide players into categories based on price, risk, value, and production.

Can't Miss: High priced players owned by many but needed on your team.

High Risk: Players that are lower priced, and with the right matchup have the ability to make your team. These are the players that win you leagues and tournaments.

Fillers: Your steady players to fill out your roster. Nothing flashy but with middle of the road dollar values, these players are necessary to complete a winning roster.

So, let's take a look at today's games:

Can't Miss

Damian Lillard ($8000): Lillard and the Trailblazers have gotten off to a better start than anyone expected. The ultra-talented PG is averaging 42.1 fantasy points per game and gets to face off against a Rockets team in turmoil fresh off a head coaching change.

Paul George ($8500): Anyone who tells you that George isn't still a bonafide superstar in this league is crazy. Just a year after a very serious leg injury, George is dominant once again. With a game against the 76ers on the books this evening, George should prove his worth.

Brook Lopez ($8400): Both the Nets and Hornets are coming into the second game of a back-to-back so the fatigue isssue is null and void. Right now, Brooklyn is the worst team in the NBA by a fair amount, and their only good player is Lopez. Look for his typically strong offensive season to continue.

High Risk

Isaiah Smith ($5900) and Avery Bradley ($4200): I will double up on this one, as I am still not sold on the Mavericks solid start to the season. Smith has been an absolute revelation, averaging 34.8 fantasy points per game so far, and Bradley has added a a good level of scoring to his tenacious D. I like Bradley more for his price and because I doubt too many people will be using him.

Jerami Grant ($3000): Averaging over 20 minutes per game, Grant has been a solid if not spectactular option for DFS players this season. However, with a matchup against the not so sturdy Pacers defense, Grant has a chance to really have a breakout game and win you some money.


Al Horford ($6800): What a great value for the best player on the Hawks. With a very easy matchup against the Kings this evening, Horford will find easy ways to score and rack up fantasy points for much less of a dollar value than other big named centers.

Kemba Walker ($6500): Kemba is coming off his most impressive game of the season against the Knicks and gets an even easier opponent this evening when he faces the Nets. $6500 is a steal and should leave plenty of room for others on your roster.

Tobias Harris ($5500): Harris has justified his offseason contract and gets a chance to help you out big time going up against the youngsters on the Timberwolves.

Ryan Anderson ($4700): Great value here as Anderson will have to step up big once again with Anthony Davis injured.

With the attacks on Paris this week, fantasy sports, and sports in general, have taken a back seat in my mind. I have many friends living in Paris and have been lucky that none of them have been harmed by the tragic attacks. Not two months ago, I lived just down the street from one of the attack sites and have been blessed to have not been there at the wrong time. But now without further delay, I shall make my picks for this week's slate of NFL games.

My starting QB will be Aaron Rodgers ($8800), who is coming off two consecutive losses and is looking to scorch the earth this week. Rodgers has had huge success against the Lions in the past and this Lions team is weak at best. Look for an absolutely monster game and for the Packers to get back on track. If Rodgers is out of your price range, look no further than Blake Bortles ($7400), against an inept Ravens secondary, to continue what has been a very strong second season.

I basically like everyone in the Patriots vs. Giants game this week as I feel we could see almost a repeat of that historic Giants vs. Saints game from a couple of weeks ago. Having said that, my start of the week at RB is LeGarrette Blount ($6400). Without Dion Lewis hogging snaps, Blount could easily go off for a couple TDs and a bunch of yards. Best of luck this week and keep Paris in your prayers.

A day after mega star Kevin Durant went down with an injury, we have a full slate of games this evening filled with superstars. The right choice will win you money while the wrong choice will leave you scratching your head. So without further ado, which star do you align your team around? For me, the easy choice is James Harden ($9300), going up against the horrendous Nets. While The Beard might only play three quarters, that should be plenty of time to rack up a ton of points. The next star I love is the beastly Andre Drummond ($8000). There will be a fun matchup this evening down low between Drummond and DeMarcus Cousins ($9500). The Pistons center has been otherworldly this year, and Sacramento isn't the strongest of defensive teams. Drummond will feast tonight and help your team to a nice victory.

In our value pick department, my top player for the evening is Marvin Williams ($4400). The Knicks, while they are improved, aren't a defensive powerhourse and Williams has been a fantasy stud all year. In the very same game, two guards stick out as good picks as valuable roster fillers. Jeremy Lin ($4000) and Langston Galloway ($4000) have really impressed me this year with steady contributions on the offensive end of the floor in slightly more limited capacities. My final pick of the evening is Jared Sullinger ($4200), who has really vastly improved his skill set this season and faces off against a Pacers team lacking in front court stability. So, the moral of the story for this evening? Ride a couple of big stars to big points and fill out with solid picks from other high-scoring games.

After the historic Week 8 of the NFL season, this week can only be a bit of a letdown. Looking for the next Saints vs. Giants game? Good luck, but let's take a peek at the most likely games that could come close to replicating that scoreline. The Giants are once again featured in a matchup that has the potential to produce bunches of fantasy points. I personally love Doug Martin ($7300), who should continue the recent trend and tear through the soft front 7 of the Giants.  Jameis Winston ($6300) is an interesting value pick as his recent performances have been promising, but I much prefer to look in the direction of Mike Evans ($6900) to be on the recieving end of the top draft pick's passes.

The Bears face off against the Chargers in a matchup featuring two of the brashest QBs in the league. I like both Phillip Rivers ($7900) and Jay Cutler ($6800) to sling the ball around a ton. As such, expect both of their top targets in Antonio Gates ($6800) and Alshon Jeffery ($7700) to thrive this week, especially Gates with Keenan Allen suffering a very serious injury last week.

Finally, my top RBs include Ronnie Hillman ($6300), who will be facing a weak Indy defense, and Chris Ivory ($7400), who should be relied on heavily against Jacksonville with Ryan Fitzpatrick ($5700) coming off a thumb injury.

Remember you can play against us at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge and you can follow me @dfinch21.
