Best Week 11 NFL DFS Stacks on FanDuel
Tom Brady/Brandin Cooks @ OAK ($8.6k, $7.7k FanDuel) – GPP
Brandin Cooks isn’t the most reliable pairing option with Tom Brady. In fact, no Patriots receivers are guaranteed to produce in a given week based on how often the coaching staff changes its approach. Yet this is a prime spot for Cooks against the a Raiders team that ranks dead last in DVOA pass defense and has given up the highest passer rating (110.5) to opposing QBs this season. This game will be played at an altitude of over 8,000 feet in Mexico City and I’d rather bank on Cooks’ fitness than the Raiders thinning secondary — CB David Amerson (foot) could be out this week.
Carson Wentz/Zach Ertz/Alshon Jeffery @ DAL ($8.7k, $8.0k and $7.0k FanDuel) – Cash/GPP
The Eagles come out of their bye week to face a struggling Cowboys team that might be without its best defensive player in Sean Lee (hamstring). His absence would be a huge boon for Zach Ertz, who is moving all over the formation and has been the most reliable TE in the league this season. Alshon Jeffery is starting to flash great chemistry with Carson Wentz, and he’ll finally see some below average corners after facing some of the league’s best DBs during the first half of the season.
Alex Smith/Travis Kelce @ NYG ($7.9k, $7.5k FanDuel) – Cash
Like the Patriots, the Chiefs offense is very multiple and involves a lot of different pieces. But their coaches are smart enough to recognize when they have a clear-cut advantage. The Giants have been awful against TEs for several seasons and 26th in DVOA pass defense, while giving up the most FPPG (16.39) to the position, this year. Travis Kelce has scored a TD in three consecutive games, totaling 239 receiving yards in the process. The Giants’ effort has seemingly fallen off a cliff during that same span.
Jay Cutler/DeVante Parker/Julius Thomas vs. TB ($6.6k, $6.2k and $5.0k FanDuel) – GPP
In Cash, Jarvis Landry ($6.8k) is probably the preferred option as far as Dolphins WRs go, but DeVante Parker could pop in this matchup. The Bucs rank 28th in DVOA pass defense and 28th in passes on the left side of the formation, which is where Parker runs the majority of his routes. Tampa’s Cover 2-based scheme has always been generous to opposing TEs, and Julius Thomas is dirt cheap on FanDuel, as is Jay Cutler of course. The Dolphins have been a laughing stock, but their offense has improved dramatically over the last two weeks. Plus, their deteriorating defense should ensure this game exceeds its modest 40.5-point over/under.

Mark Ingram/Saints Defense vs. WAS ($8.2k and $4.5k FanDuel) – Cash/GPP
This Saints defense deserves more credit than it’s getting from this price tag on FanDuel. That unit ranks third in DVOA defense while giving up the seventh-fewest passing YPG (201.4) this season. New Orleans’ D/ST averages 14.25 FD PPG at home this season, and Kirk Cousins has posted a 91.8 passer rating with 25 interceptions over 26 career road games. Mark Ingram needs no recommendation after scoring six touchdowns over his last five games. He’s been the hammer, finishing nearly all Saints drives that wind up inside the 5-yard line.
Brandon McManus/Broncos Defense vs. CIN ($4.8k and $4.8k FanDuel) – GPP
This is a great spot to buy low on this Broncos defense, as it goes from facing the top offense in the league (in terms of total YPG) to the Bengals’ last-place unit. With a great on-field matchup and the added motivation of bouncing back from two embarrassing defeats the past two weeks, Denver’s D/ST is a top play at home. The Bengals’ pass defense is rather solid, and obviously Brock Osweiler isn’t carving teams up in the red zone. But he is moving the ball effectively to set up Brandon McManus for three FGs in last week’s loss at Mile High Stadium.
