Week 11 DFS Picks
Kirk Cousins ($6,200), Minnesota Vikings vs. Dallas CowboysIn the last two weeks, Kirk Cousins has thrown for a combined 512 yards and 5 touchdowns. He’s also thrown multiple touchdown passes in four of his last five games. He’s only thrown 1 interception in the last three weeks. Given his DraftKings price and matchup against the awful Dallas Cowboys defense, Cousins is a no-brainer pick at the quarterback position for Week 11. The Cowboys defense has allowed the second-most passing TDs this year. The other negative for Cousins is that the Vikings could find themselves running a ton if they gain a significant lead. Andy Dalton is expected to return for the Cowboys, which should make things a bit more competitive for Cousins.
Nyheim Hines ($5,200), Indianapolis Colts vs Green Bay PackersI realize this could be a risky play given Hines’ inconsistency in rush attempts; however, he has a safe floor due to his involvement in the passing game. Nyheim Hines has four or more targets in four of the last five games. He has become a big part of this offense, scoring 4 touchdowns (3 in the air and 1 on the ground) in the last three weeks. Hines is coming off his best game of the season and will look to exploit the Green Bay Packers in Week 11. The Packers have given up the second-most fantasy points to running backs.
Willie Snead IV ($4,500), Baltimore Ravens vs Tennessee TitansI mentioned Willie Snead as a player for you to add to your fantasy rosters in my waiver wire article earlier this week. He has been Lamar Jackson‘s favorite wideout to target in recent weeks. Snead has a collective 207 receiving yards and two touchdowns in his last three games. Those touchdowns did come in a tough matchup against the Patriots in Week 10 keeping the Ravens in the game. There is no reason for Jackson to pull back on his volume to Snead in Week 11. Willie Snead is a whole $1,300 cheaper than Marquise Brown, who hasn’t come close to Snead’s production these last few weeks. Look for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens to bounce back offensively in Week 11 against the Titans who give up the second-most fantasy points to WRs. I’m sure Snead will have a big role carved out in this one.

Logan Thomas ($3,300), Washington Football Team vs. Cincinnati BengalsI’m shocked at Logan Thomas’s price given his involvement at the tight end position and this easy matchup. He has double-digit fantasy points in three of the last four weeks. This includes 11 targets in his last two games. As you probably know, tight end is the hardest position to trust, but Thomas has been consistent enough in recent weeks to trust him in a plus matchup. The Bengals have given up the (you guessed it) second-most fantasy points to the TE position in 2020.
Miami Dolphins ($3,400) @ Denver BroncosLet me just lead with the fact the Broncos have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing defenses. Drew Lock took a beating last week vs the Raiders. According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, Lock has a “pretty severe strain and bruising" to his ribs and is questionable for his Week 11 matchup against the Dolphins. Given the fact the Broncos already have given up a bunch of fantasy points to defenses with a healthy Drew Lock, the Dolphins find themselves in a favorable position in Week 11. At best, they will be up against a young, banged-up quarterback. Nate Hamilton brings his nearly two decades of experience as a fantasy football player to The Game Day.
