Welcome to the Team Rise or Fall NFL Week 11 GPP Picks for FanDuel. What I want to accomplish with this post is laying down a few paths that hopefully lead to the top of a tournament. Keep in mind for Gpps/tournaments: We’re looking for upside and correlation. This means stacking a quarterback with at least one pass-catcher from his team and one from the opposing team.
You can see the success Team Rise or Fall members are having with stacking in our Winners section. If you’re new around these parts, make sure to check out our sample Study Hubs for the NBA and NASCAR. The sample Study Hubs will give you a nice FREE look at the information we provide for our members.
Let’s get to Week 11!
Jameis Winston (7.2k)
Take a look at the FanDuel Stacks Tab (FD Stacks) in the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub and you’ll see Winston and the New Orleans Saints are the 5th rated stack on the slate. They’re taking on the Atlanta Falcons and their worst defense in the league against the quarterback position. There’s always the risk that Jameis throws the ball to the other team and that’s ok. He likes to sling the ball as well. It’s a completely different set of weapons from last year’s Tampa Bay Bucs team to this year’s Saints team, but Jameis averaged 21 fantasy points per game against the Falcons last year.
Justin Herbert (8.5k)
The rookie Herbert is averaging 26.7 fantasy points per game over his last four games which leads all quarterbacks on the slate. It needs to be mentioned there’s no Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, or Josh Allen on the main slate this weekend, but still, Herbert is playing pretty well. The Los Angeles Chargers are home against the New York Jets and their 21st ranked defense against the quarterback position. This is a great weekend for Herbert to shine.
Dalvin Cook (10.5k)
Every season it seems like there’s one running back that you jam into your lineups almost no matter what. This year it’s Dalvin Cook. He had 34 touches in a poor performance (13.2 fantasy points) last week against the Chicago Bears. Our NFL Study Hub projects Cook for 23 touches against a Dallas Cowboys defense ranked 20th against the running back position. I’m looking for Dalvin to get back on track this weekend.
D’Andre Swift (6.9k)
Our NFL Study Hub projects Swift for 18 touches in a game where the Detroit Lions take on the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers rank 28th against the running back position so we’re off to a good start. If we dig a little deeper we see Swift is averaging 17.28 fantasy points per game over his last five games with eight or more touches. Did I mention we’re projecting D’Andre for 18 touches?
Keenan Allen (8k)
Allen makes a great play whether you’re stacking him with Justin Herbert or using him as a one-off in your lineup. Our NFL Study Hub has Keenan rated as the 3rd highest projected wide receiver, 4th best value at wide receiver, and he’s the 5th best wide receiver in the Team Rise or Fall ratings. We’re projecting Allen for 11 targets, and he’s averaging 17 fantasy points per game over his last four games. The cherry on top is he’s facing the New York Jets and their 23rd ranked defense against wide receivers.
D.J. Chark (6.2k)
We’re trying to win the big money so we have to take a chance or two. The Jaguars are home against the Pittsburgh Steelers who bring their 29th ranked defense against wide receivers to Jacksonville. The Steelers are favored by 10 points so the Jags should be playing catch up and that means throwing the ball a lot. Our NFL Study Hub projects Chark for eight targets so the opportunities should be there.
Mark Andrews (6.5k)
Andrews rates as the top tight end across the board (Projection, value, and rating) in the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub. He’s only had two standout weeks this season so the Tennessee Titans’ 24th ranked defense against tight ends should have Mark excited. Six catches, 70 yards, and a touchdown will be a successful outing in my opinion.
Hayden Hurst (5.5k)
Hurst is a really good complement to your Jameis Winston stacks. The Atlanta Falcons tight end is averaging 9.1 fp/gm over his last four games which is good for second among tight ends on the main slate. If the Falcons-Saints game is a shootout as Las Vegas predicts (50.5 implied game total) then Hayden should play a part in the scoring.
I’m looking to target defenses that are facing teams/quarterbacks that are sloppy with the ball. The Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz fall right into this category. Carson Wentz has been sacked 35 times in nine games and has 12 interceptions. The Browns should have the opportunity to rack up some defensive points.
This pick is less about the Vikings and more about my lack of faith in the Dallas Cowboys quarterback situation. Andy Dalton has one touchdown against three interceptions and seven sacks in three starts this season. His worst game in a very limited sample size was a road game at Washington. The Cowboys are the road team this week and I’m expecting the Vikings to clamp down on their offense.
Good luck to everyone this weekend. Let’s get this money!
