2020 NFL DFS Week 11 Team Stacks

on

With only one game having an over/under above 50 points, the 2020 NFL DFS Week 11 Team Stacks has a seemingly smaller pool of talent to focus on.

For the first time in recent memory, there are no tight ends over $5,000 salary on DraftKings.

Most of the news this week has been predictable. A few more COVID flare-ups, a few more injuries to monitor. For the most part nothing we haven’t come to expect in the new normal.

But all eyes this week will likely be on the New Orleans Saints, whose Friday morning announcement to start Taysom Hill over Jameis Winston surprised us all!

Game of The Week: Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints

The only game in the main slate to have an expected point total above 50 points. And while we may not know what the Saints offense will look like under Hill’s lead, we know he’s got a great matchup to get started with.

Taysom Hill has apparently beaten out Jameis Winston for the starting role in the Saints offense. Hill will have a lot of potential against the Falcons defense.

Michael Thomas has been a bit of a crushing disappointment so far this season for sure. But if he’s ever going to turn it around it’s going to be this week. It stands to reason that Hill would lean heavily on Thomas’s ability in the short-yardage game.

Things are looking good for Kamara going into the weekend. He’s expected to play, but if there is a set back, the entire team gets a huge bump in expected production. Murray could be a sneaky play even with Kamara in the lineup, but he becomes a must-start without him.

Jared Cook is the Mutual Fund of fantasy football. He’s safe, reliable, and you likely won’t regret choosing him. He won’t make you a millionaire but he’ll likely get you a safe return.

As for Matt Ryan and most of the Falcons players you know what to expect. They’re an all or nothing offense who outside of Julio Jones are prone to volatile production.

Ridley is questionable and his status needs to be monitored ahead of the game. Zaccheaus would be the immediate beneficiary if Ridley were out.

Hayden Hurst has very quietly been on a tear lately. Averaging 6.5 targets per game over the last month, it has been a full month of double-digit production on Draft Kings. At a very agreeable $4,400 salary and without Darren Waller, Gronk, Tyler Higbee, or Travis Kelce in the slate he seems as good a choice as any.

Teams to Stack

Cincinnati Bengals @ Washington Football Team

I’m actually really looking forward to this game. It seems to be one of the more evenly matched and potentially fun games of the week.

Joe Burrow is coming off of a few down weeks against Tennessee and Pittsburgh. And while the Football team has a bit of an underrated defense, they should be able to force a lot of passing volume.

Joe Mixon has officially been ruled out, which means Gio Bernard gets another chance to lead the backfield. Since it’s the Bengals, Samaje Perine remains a potential TD vulture. But we can expect Bernard to rebound from the Steelers game.

Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins are the two pass catchers to have. Boyd and Higgins have become a dependable duo and whichever one goes into your lineup should really just be dependent on budget more than anything else.

New England Patriots @ Houston Texans

While the offense is still a far cry from what it once was, the Patriots have been rebounding well as of late.

Cam Newton still doesn’t throw the ball often enough for me to recommend him as a season-long option. But if there was ever a week to trust him in DFS it’s this week. The Patriots defense will be as good as it always is, but Deshaun Watson should turn this into a shootout.

Jakobi Meyers has been on a rampage as of late. Since week eight he has had the

  • 5th most targets (31)
  • 3rd most catches (23)
  • 4th most receiving yards (286)
  • 9th most points per game (19.5)

I doubt this hot streak can last forever. But I’m pretty sure the Texans won’t be slowing him down too much. At $4,900 Meyers is chalk but still a must have.

Burkhead and Harris have played two very different but equally useful roles in the offense. Harris has been the workhorse with 14+ carries in the past three game. Burkhead has been the third down and goal line back. Harris makes for a solid floor stable option in any given week. Burkhead is more of the boom or bust TD upside kind of play. Either way against the Texans it’d be hard to go wrong.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

As it always seems to be, Big Ben is once again an affordable high ceiling option. He’s becoming a DFS cornerstone and is absolutely worth his price tag this week with legitimate top 3 upside.

The Steelers offensive domination was on full display last week as all three receivers had more than 20 PPR points. Any or all of them could potentially repeat their performances once again. Diontae Johnson remains my preferred option, but there is a strong case to be made for everybody. It’s simply a matter of what fits your budget.

James Conner has had a slow couple of weeks. Lately, he seems to be a victim of circumstance as he has twice dipped below 15 touches for the first time since week 1. I expect a bit of a bounce-back in a positive matchup this week.

And as is the case for seemingly every tight end this week, Ebron might get 3 points, he might get 18. But he’s affordable and there are severely limited options available to us this week.

Detroit Lions @ Carolina Panthers

Danny Amendola, D’Andre Swift, and Kenny Golladay are all out for the Lions in Week 11.

Marvin Jones and T.J. Hockenson were limited participants at practice. As a result, there are some extremely cheap high ceiling plays on this team.

I’m not recommending Stafford as his potentially five best pass catchers. He’s done a great job of making something from nothing for most of his career, but the injuries are just too ridiculous this week.

Marvin Hall leads all receivers with 10+ receptions in yards per reception with an absurd 21.5 yards. He’s an all or nothing play that is great for a GPP lineup. Quintez Cephus, although largely unproductive this season has the potential to see 10 targets for the first time since week 1. He’s got basically no floor but for only $3,000, he’s got plenty of potential.



Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson are both bargain bin plays. Johnson has the pass-catching upside, although he’ll be TD dependent. Peterson will likely get the bulk of the work, but it’s unlikely he scores too many points beyond the 8-13 we’ve come to expect
