NFL Week 11 DFS Picks: You Know QB But What About Our RB?

We are already entering Week 11 of the 2020 NFL season off of one of the wildest weeks of the year.

This looks to be another wild week in the NFL with several divisional games and big-time games.

Best Week 11 DFS QB

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger ($6,700 on DraftKings)

Matchup: at Jaguars

Over the last four weeks, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has been incredibly productive from a DFS perspective. He has thrown 11 touchdowns in that span and is averaging just under 275 passing yards per game. The Pittsburgh offense is starting to hit its stride, scoring 29 points per game in that stretch.

In Week 11, Roethlisberger will face a Jaguars defense that has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points against opposing quarterbacks. Roethlisberger also has thrown for 1,095 yards and seven touchdowns in his past three games against the Jaguars.

It should be another 300-yard passing day for the future Hall of Fame quarterback with Jacksonville’s defense reeling. The Steelers should have no problem scoring into the mid-30s once again, so look for another tremendous offensive output by Roethlisberger.

Best Week 11 DFS RB

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed ($4,800)

Matchup: at Broncos

Some of you are reading this and thinking, who is Salvon Ahmed? Well, let me tell you. He is a rookie running back from the University of Washington who was productive in the Pac-12. But after a somewhat disappointing NFL Combine, he went undrafted and eventually signed with the Dolphins as a college free agent.

He received a significant chunk of the rushing workload in Week 10 as Myles Gaskin, Jordan Howard and Matt Breida were all out of the game against the Chargers because of injuries. In that game, Ahmed totaled 90 yards and scored a touchdown on 22 touches.

This week, the Dolphins released Howard and it doesn't appear that Gaskin or Breida will be ready by Sunday. That means it's Ahmed's backfield again. Miami faces a Broncos defense that allowed over 200 rushing yards to the Raiders last week. At less than $5,000, Ahmed is a strong RB2 this week.

Best Week 11 DFS WR

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson ($5,900)

Matchup: at Jaguars

If you can look past the inconsistencies and nagging injuries for Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, you would see that he has performed like a low-end WR1 this season. In the five games in which he played at least 50 snaps, Johnson has totaled 426 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He's coming off back-to-back games with double-digit targets and has a combined 39 targets over the last four contests.

At just $5,900, Johnson is a strong WR2 play this week. His Steelers will travel to Jacksonville to face the Jaguars. Jacksonville has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing receivers this season and Ben Roethlisberger has been on fire lately. Don't be surprised if Johnson far outproduces his price in Week 11. Johnson is the wide receiver you want to stack with Roethlisberger this week.

Best Week 11 DFS TE

Falcons TE Hayden Hurst ($4,400)

Matchup: at Saints

Every week, the DFS options at tight end get weaker. With George Kittle out and Travis Kelce and Darren Waller playing on Sunday Night Football, the afternoon slate options aren't great. That is why we are going to recommend sliding Hayden Hurst of the Atlanta Falcons into your lineups once again.

Hurst isn't flashy, but he is consistent. He has had at least 53 receiving yards in each of four straight games and has caught at least four passes in all of those contests. He is a big part of the Falcons offense and is nearly a guarantee not to get you a 0 in your DFS lineup. It also doesn't hurt that the Saints are a neutral matchup this week and his price tag is still so low. It doesn't feel great, but we're starting Hurst once again in DFS.

Best Week 11 DFS FLEX

Vikings WR Justin Jefferson ($6,000)

Matchup: Home vs Cowboys

Truth be told, I put Justin Jefferson into my lineup before the Monday Night Football game even kicked off. All he did in that performance was cement his status into our lineups in Week 11.

Against Chicago's elite defense, Jefferson caught eight passes for 135 yards and looked spectacular. He has been red-hot as of late with 692 receiving yards and three touchdowns in his past seven games. During that stretch he's averaging about seven targets per game as well.

This week, he will face a Cowboys defense without its top cornerback, Tre'von Diggs. Dallas also has allowed the second-most points to fantasy receivers this season. Jefferson might be a tad expensive for a flex this week, but you can get by if you go cheaper at running back and tight end.

Jefferson should be considered a lock to go over 100 receiving yards once again this week.
