FanDuel DFS NFL Week 11 picks and lineup advice: Tight End

While it may look like a normal tight end slate, a lot of these players are far too cheap relative to the other positions.

Travis Kelce ($7300) is way too cheap going up against a middling Cowboys secondary in a game with the highest over-under on the slate. He will almost certainly make it into my cash lineup, as it is not every week you can get Kelce in your lineup without spending a fortune.

George Kittle ($6800) has also returned and gets another nice matchup against Jacksonville with Deebo Samuel questionable for the game as well. Regardless, Kittle will see seven-plus targets and has a great chance to find the end zone this week.

As for some cheaper options, Dawson Knox ($5600) is coming off a down week but should be able to do some damage against a soft Colts secondary. While I will likely be paying up at tight end for my cash lineups, I think Knox is a solid option in tournaments.

Finally, Cole Kmet ($5100) is just another piece that I want to have in this Ravens and Bears game. Kmet has seen six-plus targets in three straight games with Fields under center and while he has yet to find the end zone on the year, he can easily supply a solid week at this price point and could win you some serious money if he finds pay dirt.

FanDuel DFS NFL Week 11 picks and lineup advice: D/ST

As always, I am a huge advocate of punting at the D/ST position. This is because of the unpredictability of defensive scoring, and while obviously in a vacuum I would rather have the Browns against the Lions than a lot of these cheaper options, the difference in salary almost always makes punting the position the optimal move.

My favorite play this week is Washington ($3500) against the Cam Newton-led Carolina Panthers. I personally believe Washington gets the job done here and even if they do not pull out a victory, this should be a very low-scoring game as both teams try and establish the run.

I will also throw an honorable mention to the Seahawks ($3700) assuming Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins are still out, even though their defense has been awful this year.

Finally, though it certainly pains me I love the Texans ($3000) at the bare minimum price. The Titans’ offense dearly misses Derrick Henry and they have not shown the ability to blow teams out in his absence. While I would not say the Texans have a huge chance to pull off an upset, a low-scoring affair is a very possible outcome.

FanDuel DFS NFL Week 11 Lineup

  • QB Lamar Jackson – $8400
  • RB Dalvin Cook – $8400
  • RB AJ Dillon – $7000
  • WR Rashod Bateman – $5800
  • WR Allen Robinson II – $5700
  • WR Deebo Samuel – $7600
  • TE Travis Kelce – $7300
  • FLEX Myles Gaskin – $6200
  • D/ST Washington – $3500

This is a lineup geared much more toward a tournament, as it stacks the Ravens and Bears game, which I have mentioned multiple times in this article. While Bateman and Robinson are certainly risky plays in this game, if they were to hit this lineup could do some serious damage. If Robinson is unable to go, I like Mooney or Kmet as a pivot option instead.

With staples like Samuel, Dillon, and Kelce mixed with the huge upside of Dalvin Cook and Gaskin, this lineup could be looking real nice come Sunday afternoon. I will mention it does break one of the golden rules of DFS, which is not to play two running backs from the same game. However, after some consideration, I think this is going to be a very run-heavy game and with Dillon at such a discounted price, I am willing to break the rule just this once. Regardless of your eventual lineup, best of luck in your Week 11 DFS endeavors and go make some money!
