Daily Fantasy Tips – NFL Week 11

Daily Fantasy Tips – NFL Week 11

Nov 16, 2013

.
For those of you that play daily fantasy, you don’t have to worry about any of your players getting the injury bug or being wedded to an underperforming player for the entire season. However, you do need to make sure you make the optimal selections for each week and choose the players that have the best matchups.
.
Here are some tips this week for beating daily fantasy salary cap games as well as winning at the 3-on-3 fantasy matchups at SportsTradex.com.
.
Salary Cap:
.
Nick Foles: Foles has been one of the top quarterback selections in back-to-back weeks. I expect this to continue this week as he faces a very weak Washington Redskins secondary. Vegas is expecting this game to put up the most points out of any this weekend, and the Eagles are expected to come out on top. What does this translate into? Plenty of touchdowns for Nick Foles. Go ahead and draft him provided he doesn’t break the bank.
.
Brian Leonard: On most sites, Leonard is somewhere from cheap to very cheap. I project Leonard to be worth about 10 fantasy points, which can make him an all star value to just kind of ‘meh’ value depending on the site. While the Buccaneers will likely split carries between Leonard and Rainey, Leonard should still see plenty of touches and receptions to get to value. If you would be happy getting 10 fantasy points for his salary, go ahead and draft him.
.
Marshawn Lynch: The Seahawks running back is often silenty one of the top backs week in and week out. Expect the Seahawks to pound away through the run this weekend as they build a lead and simply maintain it. Don’t be shocked to see Lynch with 100-150+ yards as well as two TD’s. His salary is generally significantly lower than Jamaal Charles, Matt Forte, and LeSean McCoy, making him a great value with tons of upside.

Sports Tradex Pick’em Matchups:
.
At Sports Tradex, the main fantasy contest is where you predict the winners of fantasy matchups. Each of these matchups pits one 3 player team against another 3 player team. For example, you would decide if you think a team of Peyton Manning, Alfred Morris, and Torrey Smith would score more or less than a team of Drew Brees, Dez Bryant, and Adrian Peterson. Whoever makes the most correct predictions wins. Here are some matchups where one team seems to have a strong edge over the other:
.
Golden Girls: I expect the team of Eli Manning, Golden Tate, and Reggie Bush should easily outperform Cecil Shorts, Le’Veon Bell, and Scott Tolzien. While Eli Manning has struggled this season, I could see him breaking out against a Packers defense that’s been known to allow the opposing QB to put up decent numbers. You just have to expect that Manning should outperform the third string opposing QB at home. Reggie Bush is a solid PPR running back that can put up a lot of numbers even when he doesn’t reach the endzone, making him a better selection than Le’Veon Bell.
.
Cecil Shorts and Golden Tate are a bit of a wash, giving the advantage in this matchup to Golden Tate’s team.

Everyday I’m Russelling: This matchup pitches Russell Wilson, Andre Johnson, and Rashad Jennings against Cam Newton, Eddie Lacy, and Larry Fitzgerald. It seems Wilson’s team has the strong advantage here. With the Seahawks facing the defensively inept Vikings, Wilson stands to put up more fantasy points than Cam Newton, who faces a much improved Patriots defense.
.
Andre Johnson has proven to be a beast with Case Keenum at quarterback, and I’d expect him to put up significantly more fantasy points than Larry Fitzgerald. Providing Darren McFadden is still out, Rashad Jennings should be a sneaky pick to score a lot of fantasy points and isn’t much of a downgrade to Eddie Lacy. So as long as Darren McFadden doesn’t start, Russell Wilson’s team should be the safe pick in this matchup.
