Yahoo DFS Picks Week 11: Tips on NFL DFS Lineup for Daily Fantasy Football GPP Tournaments



We are running with a three headed backfield as the backbone of our lineup this week. Christian McCaffrey and Dalvin Cook have a large chunk of the salary, but there are also some attractive high-potential mid-priced players available. As usual, we accept the volatility that comes with an all-or-nothing GPP approach to our Yahoo DFS lineup from week 11.

Again, since we play in GPP tournaments, many of our picks are boom or bust in nature. We’d rather fail than make “safe” choices and end up with a lineup unable to pay off well if things go well.

WEEK 11 STANDARD RATINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Before we break down our picks, just a reminder of a few key rules for Yahoo DFS. It is essentially the same as FanDuel, with Four-point pass TD and Semi point PPR.

WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Yahoo DFS Picks Week 11: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday’s main board, $ 200 budget, no more than six players from the same team.

WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS: DraftKings | FanDuel

  • Perhaps the Bengals are not quite on the trajectory they appeared to be after hitting the division rivals Ravens in Week 7. We will be betting on Burrow and company, however. Burrow has thrown for three touchdowns in three of the past four games, and if the Raiders continue to unravel, he should be able to deliver another good performance.

  • McCaffrey didn’t waste much time reestablishing himself as the game’s leading running back. He converted 23 touches on 161 total yards and 21.1 fantasy points in Week 10. Cam Newton is expected to start this week, and while he’s only a fraction of what he was, he still represents an improvement over Sam Darnold and PJ Walker. It will help open things up for McCaffrey and the offense in general.

  • The Packers certainly know a healthy slice of Cook awaits them, who has progressively improved his performance since returning from injury on Halloween. He totaled six touchdowns in two matchups again at Green Bay in 2020, so the Packers won’t necessarily be successful in stopping what they see coming. Anytime Cook is available at a relative discount, it’s too tempting a proposition to pass up.

  • It seems the Titans are still figuring out how to navigate life without Derrick Henry. That new reality was supposed to put Brown in the spotlight, and it still can, but that hasn’t been the case as of yet. Brown has added 9.5 fantasy points in two games after Henry’s injury. The Texans will certainly dedicate coverage and schemes to stop Brown, but they won’t have Jalen Ramsey or Marshon Lattimore at their disposal.

  • Waddle has hit double-digit goals in three of his past five games, and the Dolphins should find enough room against a poor Jets defense to incorporate him strongly again this week. During that same five-game stretch, Waddle finished with more than 10 fantasy points three times. We hope he can get close to the 20-point mark, something that may require a touchdown.

  • Aiyuk’s performance in Week 10 (three receptions, 26 yards) is disappointing on the surface, but he still played 90 percent of plays and attracted 21 percent of goals. The 49ers attempted only 19 passes, so opportunities were limited in the passing game. Aiyuk brings some Deebo Samuel-style traits and something positive to the table, and at $ 16, he’s well worth the investment this week.

  • Knox was virtually non-existent from a fantasy perspective last week in his return to action after a two-game absence. The Bills helped him get back into action, giving him the second-fewest snapshots of the year (49) that earned him a measly 2.2 fantasy points. The Colts have struggled with the tight end position, so this is a prime spot for Knox to regain his streak.

  • Dillon will be among the most popular plays this week, but DFS players don’t need to do their best to avoid the chalk. Aaron Jones will miss at least a week with an MCL sprain, and a multi-week absence is possible, so Dillon will have the backfield to himself. Dillon shouldn’t have too much trouble acclimatizing to the bigger role. He has handled double-digit touches five times this season and put in a great performance when Jones missed Week 16 in 2020.

  • It’s fair to doubt the Chiefs. After all, beating a struggling Raiders team doesn’t erase the memories of scoring more than 29 points in their first five games and scoring 13 fantasy points in that stretch. In their most recent five games, however, they only allowed more than 20 points once and totaled 35 fantasy points. The Cowboys are not a team to bother, but we will take the risk given the minimum price.
