NFL DFS Playbook: Week 11
Howard Bender pores over the data and match-ups to bring you his favorite plays for Week 11 NFL DFS main slate contests.
Welcome to the DFS Playbook for NFL Week 11!
Wow, did we ever get back on the horse and ride last week. Back in Week 9, I made the amateur mistake of trying to jam too many top wide receivers into my cash lineup, pivoted off Russell Wilson and paid the price...literally. My lineups in which I faded Wilson all missed the cash line, and rightfully so. Too much Sunday morning tinkering for all the wrong reasons. Last week, I vowed to right the ship and stick to the plan and look what happened. Even though Drew Brees took a dump on everyone, virtually every other play we used from Christian McCaffrey and Ronald Jones to Christian Kirk and Jamison Crowder hit and helped carry the load for Brees. Tight end Jack Doyle got into the end zone and our top defense of the week -- The Pittsburgh Steelers -- also smashed. We didn't get cute and we didn't shuffle names around trying to do too much. This week, it's more of the same in that we have a plan and we're sticking to it. In fact, make sure you listen to the NFL DFS Podcast with me and Jon Impemba as we carry you through each position and then actually construct one of the cash lineups you'll see on Sunday morning.
We'll look at more lineup construction thoughts, including site-specific plays, inside the breakdowns below so make sure you give it thorough reading and don't just pulls names off the list arbitrarily.
Now let's get to it...
