Our Falcons stack actually smashed last week in DraftKings GPP tournaments, with the Matty-Julio-Hooper trifecta combining for over 72 DK points just on their own. A couple duds and a meh outing from Josh Gordon muted our day that ended with 170.1 points, but we’re still feeling confident wih our Week 11 NFL DFS picks.
Week 11 Rankings:
Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker
In last week’s stack, we played our Falcons and ran it back on the other side with that Duke Johnson chalk to the tune of 3X value — fine but we should’ve taken Nick Chubb in retrospect. This week we’ll traverse the division for a Saints Superdome stack against the injury-riddled Eagles secondary while game-stacking an Eagles play, as well.

We’re also game-stacking from the Raiders-Cardinals game and hoping other DFS owners avoid two of the worst teams in the NFL.
Starting the Superdome stack off right, we ‘re betting on the Eagles O pushing game flow enough to keep Sean Payton from leaning too much on the ground game. Injuries hit the Eagles’ top three corners and it showed on Sunday night, as Dak Prescott went to The Linc and ripped them for just three yards short of his season high in passing yards.
We slammed Kamara when he was at $7,300 a couple weeks ago, bailed when he jumped to $8,700 last week, and now have jumped back at $8,200. Hopefully Ingram out-scoring Kamara on Sunday limits the latter’s ownership somewhat this week, though I’m not holding my breath on anywhere close to single-digit roster rate.
DJ’s not quite back to 2016 DJ, but under Byron Leftwich we can at least count on a return to heavy pass-game usage. His role as the Cards’ bellcow also bodes very well for hosting the Raiders, who gave up close to 30 DK points to Marlon Mack and Melvin Gordon in the past three weeks.
Again, Eagles are down their top three corners and just revived the Cowboys offense on Sunday night. So, we’re pairing Brees with the WR bringing in 65 percent of all catches from Saints receivers, per Pro Football Focus data.
Hopefully ownership stays down after the Bucs offense crumbled in scoring position under Dirk Koetter’s play calling last week. We’re counting on more Todd Monken here and more opportunities for the No. 3 receiver in air yards since Week 8 — when Ryan Fitzpatrick wrested the QB gig back from Jameis Winston.
We’re going contrarian with our sprinkle on the other side of the Saints stack. Golden Tate’s presence could help Agholor fly under the radar at $4.1K, though the incumbent did still manage 123 air yards last week to lead the Eagles and rank sixth among WRs across the league in Week 10.
Our investment in Raiders-Cardinals isn’t for the feint of heart. Fortunately, Cook provides proven upside with two 30-plus DK-point games on the season — not a misprint — along with nine targets last week to enjoy the Amari-less vacuum.
RSJ’s nine targets on Sunday make him an intriguing punt play. We’re obviously going dangerously heavy on Cardinals just by rostering two. It doesn’t feel totally uncomfortable, but we’ll make this bet on the post-McCoy Arizona offense and pre-rebuild Oakland defense so that we can clear cap for that Sean Payton offense at home.
If people want to fade Steelers D because Blake Bortles torched them twice last year, we’d love it. Focusing on the past three games, the Jags’ once-fearsome defense ranks just 19th in yards-per-play allowed. We like the TD-favorite Steelers’ chances of playing with a lead and forcing Bortles to throw into the teeth of a defense that ranks fifth over that span.
