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.

    Thanks Wes, RG needs more of this

    Loved your Hill take but then New Orleans ruined it by naming him starting qb. I can’t play him in tournaments cause ownership will be ridiculous cause of the position. Just hope he busts

    Other than @schmitto’s articles, these are the best write ups on the site. Great stuff

    Also just an FYI- Brian Poole went on IR yesterday and had season-ending shoulder surgery. Fire up Keenan Allen

    I really appreciate that you all appreciate the work. The process obviously still needs a little tweaking. I’m working very hard on a weekly basis to make those adjustment. So, it’s far from perfect — clearly blew the Jared Cook tout, and I would compare it to driving a car.

    We all know there is a chance we could be involved in an accident while driving. However, if we keep our eyes peeled for anomalies and avoid taking dangerous risks, we can operate safely in order to turn a professional profit.

    Not the best analogy, just a way of saying that the future of DFS is deeply rooted in maximizing our understanding of the actual game. If we can use analytical trends to get into the minds of coaches, our path to success will be laid out on a red carpet.
