FanDuel DFS NFL picks and advice for Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season to help you build the perfect DFS fantasy football lineup.

Welcome back to another week of FanDuel DFS fantasy football advice, this time for Week 11 of the NFL season. Week 10 was personally my most profitable week to date, with some popular plays like D’Ernest Johnson coming through along with a lot of my Cowboys stacks. Having Tyler Conklin in a majority of my lineups also helped push me well into the green.

Looking ahead to Week 11, the Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos are both on bye. In addition, players from the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Chargers, New York Giants, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will all be unavailable.

When talking about players I will reference the salaries and salary cap of a typical FanDuel tournament. I will also show a complete sample lineup, which consists of nine positions: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, FLEX, and DEF.

Note that your individual strategy should change based on the type of contests you enter, though I will reference different strategies for both cash and tournament formats.

Without further ado, here are picks and FanDuel DFS advice for every position for Week 11 of the NFL season!

FanDuel DFS NFL Week 11 picks and lineup advice: Quarterback

For the first time in what feels like forever, all the top quarterbacks are available on the main slate. While this is certainly a week where I have a few expensive quarterbacks I am eyeing, there are also a few cheaper quarterbacks that I think could supply incredible value at their salary.

Josh Allen ($8800) has been one of the more consistent quarterbacks this season and now gets a matchup against a Colts defense that has been unable to stop the pass all year.

I also love Dak Prescott ($8400) against a Chiefs defense that looked solid against the Raiders last week but is still one of the worst pass defenses in the league.

Finally, I think Lamar Jackson ($8400) will be the best quarterback play of the week in tournaments, as people will see the red number next to the Bears and pay up for Prescott or Allen when in reality, the Bears defense has not been good against the pass or rush this year, so Jackson should be able to exploit them through both.

As for some cheaper quarterback options, Derek Carr ($7200) has thrown for multiple touchdown passes in seven of nine games and gets a fantastic matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. While he has yet to show any sort of huge ceiling, he can certainly provide a solid base for your team while others may pay up for similar performances.

Finally, it is not pretty but Justin Fields ($6800) is one of the best values this week at the quarterback position. I see this game between the Ravens and Bears going well over its Vegas total of 45.5 points, and that is largely due to the fraudulence of the Bears and Ravens defense.

With Fields looking better in recent weeks and coming off a bye, I like his chances of putting up a nice game through the air and on the ground.
