FanDuel Studs to Target in Week 11
With Week 10 in the books, we look toward a slate of games in Week 11 that look less than promising for the type of high-scoring games that create obvious choices for daily fantasy lineup construction. To that end, as we do every week, we're here to help you navigate your choices by providing some options for stud players you should be targeting to build your lineups around. But first, let's take a look at how we did in Week 10.
Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Todd Gurley each met or came very close to meeting value, putting up the solid floor of points that has come to be expected from each of them. At tight end, normally the most volatile of positions for fantasy purposes, we struck gold with two "hits", with Gary Barnidge reaching the end zone for the zillionth time this season despite Johnny Manziel tossing him the rock, and Jordan Reed capitalizing on the Saints' porous pass defense to reach the end zone twice.
DeAngelo Williams was a pretty big miss, and perhaps more credence should've been given to the foot injury he'd experienced earlier in the week. But starting your running backs against the Browns should remain a practice we pursue moving forward.
Our wide receiver picks admittedly experienced tough sledding last week. The A.J. Green tournament play recommendation did not work out as hoped, but the warning to embrace Green’s volatility in tournament formats only was presented up front. But perhaps most disappointing was the Randall Cobb recommendation. Coming off of a fairly big game the week before into a plush matchup seemed like the right time to pounce on Cobb while his price was still depressed. But Green Bay's offensive struggles, particularly at the non-quarterback skill positions, should be a situation we largely avoid until proven otherwise, at least for cash games.
So with Week 10 in the rear view, let's look ahead to some of the Week 11 studs you should be targeting for your FanDuel lineups. And, as always, be sure to check out some of the tools we have available including optimal lineups and other custom research tools we offer, all designed for the platforms on which you play.
