Every Sunday in the weekly fantasy chats, I get asked about my favorite plays of the week or who is my player pool that weekend for DFS.
This article series covers exactly that.
I will go through the games I am targeting for stacking purposes here as well as the players I am targeting as core plays and tournament plays in other articles.
The idea is that this will paint a clearer picture of framing lineups.
Week 11 DFS Content:
For any who are new here, one of my favorite ways to play DFS from a tournament stance single-to-five-max entry games with 5K or smaller fields.
Both sites even offer these types of games with fewer than 100 entries (albeit at a higher cost of entry) if you want to go after a really small field.
In these contests, my approach is to go with full-game stacks.
You are going to lose a lot of weeks, but if you get the game right, you gain a big advantage. Just cashing in one of these over an 18-week season can make your entire year.
When doing these, I want to aggressively build around games that have a wider range of outcomes.
However, with the reduced number of entries, you can also eat some chalky game stacks because we are going further in the overall game stack than our opponents likely will.
These are the games I am circling for those tournaments in Week 11, but you can also tie these games into your stacks for other tournaments.
You can dig deeper into why I believe these games present some downside in the Worksheet, but we are solely playing for the upside outcome here in these games.
I will have some analysis on the player selections and game writeups, but check out the Week 11 Worksheet for a fully detailed breakdown of the players and games.
Cardinals @ Texans
We do not have a lot of standout game environments this week for both sides, but this is one.
The past two Houston games have featured 76 and 57 combined points.
We also saw the Arizona offense look capable with Kyler Murray returning.
Arizona’s 5.9 yards per play were their most in a game since Week 3, and they had their most points in a game since Week 3.
This game has a ton of avenues for mini-stacks or outright onslaughts playing both sides.
C.J. Stroud, Tank Dell, Devin Singletary, and Trey McBride will be the most popular pipelines to this game, but we also have Kyler Murray, Marquise Brown, Nico Collins, and Dalton Schultz in good spots.
Rondale Moore, Michael Wilson, and Robert Woods are near minimum pricing as punts.
We also have James Conner as a leverage play against multiple facets of this game.
