NFL Advanced Matchups: Week 11
Before we dive into the meat and potatoes of Week 11, allow me to detail the intended purpose of these articles. The individual analysis below highlights the passing game options that either have the opportunity to perform well above baseline expectation, or will face a difficult matchup based upon philosophical and/or data-driven indicatives. After over 30 years of personal fantasy football successes and failures, identifying all avenues toward averting avoidable risk has been ingrained into my DNA. While these player recommendations can most definitely be applied to yearlong fantasy, the intended format is DFS on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
When choosing the encounters I deem worthy for inclusion, sidestepping the top-five highest salaries is preferred with the exception of the most mouth-watering or volatile engagements. History facing expected coverage shells will carry the most significant weight, but expected involvement, team tendencies, anticipated game script, relevant injuries, individual defensive performance, and weather conditions will be factored. Some of the players highlighted might come as a surprise. But you can take comfort in knowing that I will not lead you down a dark alley outlook unless I am thoroughly convinced that the player will resurface on the other side to the comforts of a brightly lit situation. My focus is to uncover some reliability with my touts that can be counted on in GPPs, cash games, and single-entries.
