Week 11 optimal FanDuel lineup: Riding the Mariota wave
It’s the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Everyone is out grocery shopping, decorating, traveling, etc.
You know what else happens this week? Crappy weather.
Yep, it’s that time of year. Snow, wind, rain, cold temperatures… it’s all here. Luckily, in DFS we get to pick whoever we want. We can embrace those cold weather games, or we can avoid them all together. I do a little bit of both, because I like to work with the conditions rather than work against them.
So buckle up, buttercup. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Here’s my optimal Week 11 FanDuel lineup.
QB: Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans ($8,000)
The most recent AFC Player of the Week is on a tear and he isn’t going to slow down this week in Indianapolis. The Colts are giving up an average of 298.2 passing yards per game, the second-most in the league (New Orleans has the top spot at 299.2). Marcus Mariota has scored 17 touchdowns since Week 5, a league-high in that time. Also, since Week 5, Mariota is scoring 0.77 fantasy points per dropback, the absolute most in the league. Second is Dak Prescott at 0.69 points per dropback. Not. Even. Close.
