Week 10 was another up-and-down week for us. We correctly stacked one of the top quarterbacks of the week in Kyler Murray with his top target in Christian Kirk. However, our top receiver pick was Cooper Kupp, who was surprisingly shut out for the first time in his career.

Week 11 has a great slate of Sunday afternoon games that should produce a ton of scoring. So without further ado, here are our top DFS picks for this week:

Top DFS Team for Week 11

Pos. Player Matchup DraftKings
QB Jameis Winston Buccaneers vs. Saints $6,500
RB Josh Jacobs Raiders vs. Bengals $6,900
RB Sony Michel Patriots at Eagles $4,900
WR Mike Evans Buccaneers vs. Saints $7,400
WR Kenny Golladay Lions vs. Cowboys $6,700
WR Mohamed Sanu Patriots at Eagles $5,100
TE Greg Olsen Panthers vs. Falcons $3,900
FLEX Tyler Boyd Bengals at Raiders $5,200
D/ST Washington Redskins Jets at Redskins $2,800

Note: Prices from DraftKings are based on a $50,000 salary cap for the week

Best Week 11 DFS QB

Bucs QB Jameis Winston ($6,500 on DraftKings)

Matchup: New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

As always, there are several quality quarterback options who can be played at all price levels in Week 11. However, one quarterback with arguably the most upside is Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston, who will face the New Orleans Saints. While the Saints defense has played well this season, Winston has already proven that he can have success against his NFC South rival.

In Week 5, Winston threw for 204 yards and two touchdowns in a narrow loss to the Saints. Given that this game is in Tampa and the Saints will be without their top cornerback, Marshon Lattimore, look for Winston to have an even bigger day this time around.

Best Week 11 DFS RB

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs ($6,900 on DraftKings)

Matchup: Cincinnati Bengals at Oakland Raiders

NFL Week 11 DFS Picks: Why Jameis Winston is Great Value 1

One of my favorite running back plays of the week is Josh Jacobs of the Raiders, who is still priced under $7,000 despite averaging over 21 carries in Oakland’s previous five games. The rookie running back has been incredibly consistent this season, scoring at least double-digit fantasy points in six straight weeks. Given his steady workload, he's rarely going to bust and always has the chance to finish as the week's RB1.

Jacobs will face the visiting Bengals, who are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Cincinnati is an excellent matchup for Jacobs as the Bengals don't have the linebacker play to match his athleticism and physicality, which should result in several big runs on Sunday. Given that Oakland will have a 10-day break between games. Look for Jacobs to get at least 20 touches in Week 11 and to produce some big numbers against one of the worst defenses in football.

Best Week 11 DFS WR

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans ($7,400 on DraftKings)

Matchup: New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

If you are going to play Winston at quarterback, you might as well stack him with his favorite target, Mike Evans. While Evans was shut out in the team's first matchup with the Saints, expect things to be much different this time around as he is fully healthy and won't be shadowed by injured cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

Evans can be streaky but his weekly upside might be the highest in the league. In 2019, he already has had three weeks with at least 39 fantasy points on DraftKings. No other player in the NFL has more than two weeks of at least 35 points as Evans remains one of the most dangerous weapons in all of football. Look for Winston to target him early and often against the Saints.

Best Week 11 DFS TE

Panthers TE Greg Olsen ($3,900 on DraftKings)

Matchup: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers

NFL Week 11 DFS Picks: Why Jameis Winston is Great Value 2

Finding value at tight end has been one of the most difficult things to do in DFS this season. And with several injuries at the position, that task has been even more challenging. That's why I'm avoiding spending up at the position this week considering its volatility. Instead, consider choosing Greg Olsen of the Panthers, who is priced at just $3,900 this week.

Olsen has a fantastic matchup this week as his Panthers host the Falcons, who have struggled to stop opposing passing attacks all season. They've also allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Olsen is starting to find his role in the Panthers' offense with Kyle Allen under center (16 targets over the past two weeks) and look for that continue in Week 11. At less than $4,000, Olsen is a must-play if you decide to fade the top tight ends this week.

Best Week 11 DFS FLEX

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd ($5,200 on DraftKings)

Matchup: Cincinnati Bengals at Oakland Raiders

Though A.J. Green has missed all of the 2019 season, Tyler Boyd's production as the Bengals' No. 1 wide receiver has been hit or miss. Boyd has seen a ton of targets but has scored just one touchdown this season as the Bengals rarely get opportunities inside of the 20. However, look for that to change this week as Cincinnati will be facing an Oakland defense devoid of talent in the defensive backfield.

In just one week, the Raiders lost both starting safeties (Lamarcus Joyner and Karl Joseph) to injury, and their cornerback play has been inconsistent. Look for Boyd to get a ton of work on the road in Week 11 and to produce some solid numbers as a flex play.
