FantasyPros Week 11 DraftStreet Lineup
Note: You can use any of the same players in your lineup. Enter the challenge to see if you can beat us!
Need more help? We asked the top salary cap experts from last week’s DFAC (Daily Fantasy Accuracy Cup) to give us their DraftStreet picks for Week 11. Consider using their recommended players in this week’s FantasyPros Challenge. Also be sure to try out our salary cap analysis tool to find more undervalued players for DraftStreet, FanDuel, and DraftKings.
Name one player that you will likely have in your DraftStreet lineup for Week 11. Why do you like him?
“If you’re looking for a top 5 quarterback option at a discounted price, then look no further than Russell Wilson ($13,743). Wilson is roughly $3K less than Drew Brees and $5K less than Peyton Manning, both of whom have their toughest matchups of the season this week. Wilson, who has thrown 9 touchdown passes over the last 4 weeks and rushed for another, will take on a Vikings’ secondary that has been completely decimated by injuries. He might also be getting back stud left tackle Russell Okung and he’ll definitely be taking his new toy, Percy Harvin, for a test drive. I have Russell as my #3 ranked quarterback this week, so be sure to plug him in as one of your quarterbacks.”

“It’s obvious that injuries to Houston running backs, Ben Tate and Arian Foster, have opened up opportunities for Andre Johnson to shine. Since QB Case Keenum took over as starter two weeks ago, Andre has five touchdown catches. Johnson has 25 targets over those same two weeks. I only see that number increasing against Oakland. Oakland is playing just as poorly as the Texans lately and boast a putrid defense against wide receivers allowing the 7th most fantasy points to wide outs.”
Ben Pritchett, Fantasy Insiders
“After a slow start to the season likely due to injury, the Alfred Morris from 2012 is back. Morris hasn’t had fewer than 90 yards in 4 weeks and hasn’t had fewer than 70 yards since week 1. Against a mediocre at best Eagles run defense, Morris should have another field day. Don’t let his lack of touchdowns scare you, they’re going to come eventually (he scored 13 on the ground last season). At $10,556, he’s an absolute bargain.”
Michael Sherman, Fantasy Team Advice
“This week I’m going to roll with San Diego’s Danny Woodhead. Woodhead comes with a price tag of $10,765 which makes him the 10th most expensive running back in the league. I believe this is a bargain as Woodhead is a key part of San Diego’s offense due to his pass catching abilities. This week the Chargers take on a Miami team which is in a state of chaos both on and off the field. The Dolphins are also the worst team against the run which is great news for Woodhead fans.”
Adrian Pereira, eDraft
“At $4,723 Leonard is as close to a must play that you’ll have on DraftStreet this week. Every indication is that Leonard will receive the bulk of the carries for the TB backfield – a good thing in itself, but even better when you’re going up against a weak rush defense. Save money on Leonard and look to spend elsewhere.”
Dan Gaspar, Fantasy Insiders
“The Bears are 31st in the league in run defense and Ray Rice can’t run to save his life right now. His longest carry all season is 15 yards. Coach Harbaugh has hinted at a ‘hot hand’ approach this week, and it won’t take much for Pierce to pay off his low price tag. I’d be willing to be Pierce gets more carries than Rice this week, and that he makes them pay off.”
