Survey Says? - Week 11 FantasyFeud Plays
Looking to broaden your DFS horizon? If so, you might want to give FantasyFeud a try. They offer multiple formats and a wide range of sports, but if you’re reading this, I’m willing to bet you’re most interested in football.
FantasyFeud has one of the more challenging salary cap games in the industry. If you used to play on DraftStreet, you’ll notice some similarities. You start a 10-man roster with a $100,000 cap in half-point PPR scoring. It’s a two-quarterback lineup and no kickers. Each week, I’m going to give you my optimized lineup.

Here’s this week’s optimized cash game lineup:
QB: Shaun Hill
I wouldn’t typically recommend starting Hill, but he comes it at the absolute minimum price because he was named the starter after the salaries were produced. The matchup isn’t ideal against the Broncos, but it’s actually a situation where Hill should have to throw the ball frequently. He should have no problem exceeding his value this week.
QB: Robert Griffin III
Some folks are resisting the Griffin play this week, but don’t live in the past. This is a very strong matchup for Griffin, who gets a Bucs team that gives up the fourth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Griffin comes in at a slight discount, making him good value for the week.
RB: Matt Forte
Despite having a down week against the Packers, Forte is still an elite fantasy option. We’re going right back to the well with him this week against a Minnesota team that surrendered two rushing touchdowns last week to Washignton.
RB: Alfred Blue
With Arian Foster officially out, Blue becomes a must-play on FantasyFeud this week. While I don’t think we see a massive game out of Blue, he’s essentially guaranteed to out produce his salary. Plus, his discounted price tag allows us to spend liberally elsewhere.
WR: Antonio Brown
Like Forte, Brown had a bit of a down game last week, but I expect him to rebound on Monday night. The Titans are a middle of the pack matchup for receivers, but Brown’s target volume and explosive upside essentially negate any matchup concerns.
WR: Dwayne Bowe
While I wouldn’t want to start him on my season-long fantasy team, Bowe makes for a very solid play this week on FantasyFeud. He’s coming off a strong eight catches for 93 yards against the Bills, but we’re getting him at clearance pricing. Even a modest game out of Bowe will match his dirt-cheap price.
TE: Rob Gronkowski
Gronk smash? Yes, please. I’m not going to regale you with tales of Gronkowski’s stats. You know the numbers, and you get it. This guy is good. Instead, I’d like to point out that Vegas really likes the Colts/Patriots game, which means so should we for DFS purposes this week. More points for them translates into more points for us.
The hot Cleveland defense makes for a strong play this week against a Houston team that will be without Arian Foster and starting Ryan Mallett. This one could get ugly for the Texans very quickly.
FLEX: Mark Ingram
The stars have aligned for Ingram after he missed a bulk of the season with injury. With Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas banged up, Ingram has rattled off three 100-yard performances, and looks every bit the part of the workhorse back he was projected to be as a former first-rounder. Ingram gets a very strong matchup at home this week against a struggling Cincinnati defense. He’s poised to put up RB1 fantasy numbers.
FLEX: Alfred Morris
This matchup isn’t only good for Griffin. Morris should also fare well against the Bucs. Morris is coming off a strong 92-yard, two-score performance where he averaged 4.8 yards per carry. It looks like he’s getting more comfortable with the Jay Gruden offense, and having Griffin on the field has always given Morris more room to work. He’s not bottom dollar cheap this week, but Morris should still have no problem exceeding his price tag.
