NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 11 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high-floor lineup that can win in head-to-heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools.
For more on cash game strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I go through the main slate every Friday and recap each slate on Tuesdays. Let’s get after it!
*Note: Plays listed below are in order of salary, NOT necessarily ranked by preferred plays. I’ll be updating this article from Friday – Sunday pending any news, so be sure to check back prior to lock!
Josh Allen $8,500
Allen’s price tag is expensive as the QB1 on this slate, but his situation went from an outdoor game in a snow globe to an indoor game inside Detroit’s dome. As is the case, he’s got the highest ceiling of all QBs on the slate, and the safest floor. Of course, he’s priced as such, but this matchup against Cleveland is favorable. The Browns have surrendered the NFL’s 8th highest yards per attempt and rank 27th in both explosive pass rate and EPA per pass attempt. The Bills have the highest team implied total on the slate, and we know Josh Allen is very likely to account for most of, if not all, of Buffalo’s scores. He’s also another week removed from his elbow injury.
Justin Fields $7,600
Justin Fields will look to continue to stay in the flames this week against Atlanta in a game that carries the highest total on the slate in a dome. While I do expect Fields’ rushing stat lines to regress a little bit at some point soon, what’s so encouraging about Fields’ fantasy outlook is the fact that the Bears are designing runs for him. Over the last four weeks, he’s had 35 designed runs. For context, he had 20 total in Weeks 1-6. Add in the scrambling ability and the fact that the Falcons rank 31st in pressure rate and 27th in yards per pass attempt allowed, and it looks like Fields will once again stay white hot in Week 11.
