FanDuel DFS Lineup for NFL Week 11
QB: Daniel Jones ($7,800) vs. Lions
Jones offers respectable dual-threat ability at the quarterback position. He recorded double-digit carries in three games and has three rushing touchdowns overall. The Lions are the league’s worst defense, putting Jones in a position to deliver a quality FanDuel performance.
RB: Josh Jacobs ($8,500) at Broncos
We like Jacobs in this spot because he’s receiving quality weekly volume, both as a runner and receiver. He narrowly missed his third 20-plus-point performance last week, finishing with 19.6 FanDuel points, and totaled 175 yards and two touchdowns against the Broncos in Week 4.
RB: Brian Robinson Jr. ($6,600) at Texans
Robinson continues to make his case as the lead runner on the Commanders. He led the backfield in carries (26) in their Monday night win over the Eagles. He and the Commanders have the chance to tee off against the porous Texans’ run defense this week, a unit that just surrendered 191 yards on the ground to the Giants.
WR: CeeDee Lamb ($8,100) at Vikings
Lamb is commanding 32.1% of the Cowboys’ targets, including 22 over the last two games since Dak Prescott’s return under center. Lamb started the season with three straight games of 11-plus targets, so DFS players can bet comfortably on Lamb seeing another healthy portion of the volume in the passing game.
WR: Tee Higgins ($7,600) at Steelers
With Ja’Marr Chase sidelined, Higgins is the de facto No. 1 and will be asked to step up and help keep the Bengals in playoff contention. He’s capable of posting quality numbers in his own right and will have plenty of opportunity over the next several weeks to make his case as a “Co-No. 1” as opposed to the No. 2 behind Chase.
WR: Allen Robinson II ($6,600) at Saints
Cooper Kupp hit the IR, along with his 30.1% target share. If Matthew Stafford doesn’t shrivel up into the fetal position without his binky, perhaps he’ll look Allen Robinson’s way. Someone will need to receive passes in this offense because the Rams certainly don’t seem as if they like to run the ball.

TE: Pat Freiermuth ($5,400) vs. Bengals
Tight end is a wasteland, as it often is at this point of every season, but Freiermuth has enjoyed a solid sophomore campaign. He has 23 targets across his last three games with a 16-168 line. If he can find the paint — admittedly a longer shot than DFSers may prefer — he can deliver exactly what this lineup needs.
FLEX: David Montgomery ($6,200) at Falcons
Montgomery’s backfield mate, Khalil Herbert, landed on the IR with a hip injury, so he only has to share carries with the electrifying and on-fire Justin Fields. Montgomery’s 130 touches lead the team, but Herbert is taking 114 touches with him to the shelf. Montgomery should have a little more on his plate, and perhaps Fields leaves some FD points on the platter for him.
DEF: Raiders ($3,200) at Broncos
We’re not going to talk up the Raiders as if they’re a unit on the rise, but they’re cheap and facing off against a team that’s nearly as poor offensively as it is defensively. We don’t mind taking a risk on the Raiders given the volatile, week-to-week nature of DFS defenses.
