Daily Fantasy NFL: H2H vs. GPP - Week 11

When playing 50-50’s/Double-ups or head-to-head, you want guaranteed points. This is not where you roll the dice on all-or-nothing players. The idea is to simply produce a solid, well balanced team. It may not be explosive, but it doesn’t matter whether you finish in first place or not, you just need to cash.

Head to Head and 50/50 Plays – Week 10


Russell Wilson – Wilson takes on a Minnesota defense at home that has given up a big day to almost every Qb they have faced this year. The return of Percy Harvin gives him another big weapon on offense and his o-line is healthy. He’s priced 10th on SS and is a great start there.

Nick Foles – He has the Eagles offense rolling and his matchup vs. the Redskins is about as good as it gets. Every game he has played significant minutes in other than Dallas he has multiple TD’s.

Andre Brown – An early Peyton Hillis fumble last week put Brown right back into the lead role and I don’t think he looks back. He’s set up for a ton of carries and he faces a GB defense that just surrendered 155 to McCoy last week.

Danny Woodhead – He has been a consistent performer all year and he faces a Dolphins team that is struggling vs. RB’s. Mathews’ hamstring is bothering him and Woodhead could get some extra work. He’s a great start on full PPR sites and I think he’s a good start on 1/2 PPR sites as well. Remember what Sproles did to Dolphins week 4?

Andre Johnson – He has 5 TD’s and 266 yards over the last two weeks. Keenum knows that going to Johnson is his best option and the Raiders won’t be able to stop him.

Pierre Garcon – Garçon is third in the league with 99 targets and faces an Eagles D that can’t stop WR’s. He’s RG III’s go to receiver and will get some extra looks facing the up tempo Eagles.

DeSean Jackson – He’s the third player on the list from the Was. vs Phi. game but that game has the highest over/under of the weekend and should be competitive. Nick Foles is more consistent than Vick and that leads to better results for Djax week to week. The soft secondary of the Redskins won’t stop him from finding pay dirt three weeks in a row.

Rob Gronkowski – Gronk and Graham are priced close on most sites and Gronk has far less risk. His match vs Car. isn’t the best, but the Patriots are coming off their bye and I think Brady will continue to pile up targets at Gronk. His multi-touchdown potential make him a good play this week.

Julius Thomas – Orange Julius has been the most consistent TE this year and Peyton loves him in the red zone. KC is tough vs. the TE position, but there aren’t many good TE options this week and Thomas should put up double digit points.

Bengals – Outside of Cameron and Gordon the Browns don’t have much talent on offense and Haden should stalk Gordon most of he day. The Browns should struggle to move the ball this week.

Seahawks – They underperformed last week , but with Minn. coming to town they have another great matchup again this week. A defensive score or two is always a possibility when Seattle is at home vs. a bad offense.

GPP and Large Field Tournament Plays – Week 10

Case Keenum – His price remains low on some sites despite his back to back 3 TD perfoances. Oak. is really struggling vs. the pass and Keenum will continue to take advantage. A trifecta of 3 TD games will be very impressive from the rookie.

Josh McCown – He is one of the cheapest QB plays and he should continue to put up solid #‘s. He has elite weapons in Marshall, Forte and Jeffery and Treastman’s system has brought the most out of his QBs this year.

Ben Tate – Tate took over the lead back duties last week when Arain Foster went down. He’s playing with some broken ribs so there is some risk involved, but he has played well when given the opportunity in the past and he gets the woeful Raiders this week.

Chris Ivory – Buf. isn’t a great matchup but Ivory should get 20 plus carries and could get to the 2nd level and do some damage. He’s had two pretty good games out of his last three and could be a good play tis week.

Golden Tate – The 2nd Tate brother to make the list this week is being overshadowed by the return of Harvin, but Percy is going to be on a snap count in all likely hood and that means Tate will get a tone of snaps and targets vs. the Swiss cheese Vikings D.

Vincent Jackson – Jackson has had a couple of down weeks recently, but facing the Falcons this week should return him to fantasy glory. The Falcons are horrible vs. the pass and Glennon will get back feedingt VJax.

Torrey Smith – Smith is another player with a few bad weeks recently, but he had some bad match ups and he should have a bounce back week this week. He faces a Chi. team that will be without CB Charles Tillman for the rest of the year and Smith will benefit.

Rob Housler – He’s coming off his best week of the year and he faces the lowly Jags that have given up a lot of points to TE’s. Arians is known to go to his TE and Housler stands to have big week this week as a result.

Scott Chandler – The Bills are without Robert Woods and probably Stevie Johnson and face a Jets team that is very tough against the run. They will need to pass to have success and Chandler will be a big part of their passing game. The Jets have had some trouble with the TE position in the past, Chandler should continue that trend this week.

Texans – The Texans take on a Raiders team at home that will either start a banged up Terrelle Pryor or Matt McGloin this week. Who? The Raiders are bad to start and the joke they send out as a football team this week will struggle to move the ball.

Jets – They take on a seriously depleted Bills squad that has two banged up RB’s and who’s best option in the passing game will be Scott Chandler. The Jets D has been solid this year and they have a good matchup this week.

    Also, I’m fairly confident at this point that Haden won’t be on J. Gordon since they are on the same team. I do really like the Bengals as a start for 50/50 teams though.

    Murdock he did us a favor putting this together and researching these matchups. I think that shot is a bit uncalled for.

  • Murdock03

    dryan – totally agree! Hatorade and I have been friends for prob 15 years and we started playing fantasy together. The comment was an inside joke (I posted it while we were on the phone) and I was picking on his spelling and grammar, not his analysis. Totally see why the post (to an outsider) would seem like it was a pompous jerk taking potshots at his analysis and I have modified the orig post and apologize anyone who may have taken it the wrong way. Keep up the good work Hatorade and good luck everyone today!!
