Week 11 DFS Sleepers by Chol Souders and John Burke

Here is your weekly reminder that these picks arent meant to be played together. Mix and Match these plays into lineups with stud (more expensive) plays. The goal here is to find cheaper plays or contrarian plays that will get you tds or big games. If a player listed is expensive we are leaning his way most likely because another player around the same cost is expected to be highly used so our play with more or similar production at the same cost is a better play because it will differentiate your lineup in large GPPs. Thats all that we have for a write up this week. GET AT IT PLAYBOYS!!!!!

Last week we had a solid week. We could have gotten more from our running backs but since they were priced so low we were able to take full advantage of big games from Mike Thomas and Co to still cash in tournaments. Here is to another successful week!

SUNDAY UPDATE: WITH JORDAN HOWARD OUT Chol is throwing Miles Sanders into some lineups with CMC and Josh Jacobs.....A 3 runningback approach may be the way to go this week with so many cheap RB options available. Also, with Howard out I expect the Eagles to run even more two tightend sets (Which they already are in top 3 in league) and with the Pats likely to focus on Ertz in their gameplan this game is setting up for a potential strong play of Dallas Goedert at a minuscule cost.


I am firing up Allen again against the Dolphins. The reason why is Allen has been
solid recently and offers that extra bonus of potential rushing TD’s. Allen went
over 20 fantasy points against the fish earlier in the year and has had some of his
games in his young career against the Dolphins. I like Allen a lot here giving you
some wiggle room to spend a little bigger in other areas.

I get it. I do. Mixon has burned everyone all year. But hear me out. He has
received over 80% of the touches the past two weeks while racking up very solid
games against good defenses the past two weeks. Add in the Raiders D who
struggle against the run and have allowed TD’s and 100 yard games to multiple RB
throughout the year. Mixon is becoming more involved in the passing game with a
rookie at the helm using the check down and that continues here. Even when
they were out of it from the gate last week they still leaned heavy on Mixon. He
has 3 receiving TD’s this year and I am banking on his first rushing TD in this one.

I am stacking here in this one with Allen against the Dolphins. Earlier this year
Brown had 17 pts in ppr scoring against the fish. He has been steady and reliable
all year for the bills and I am taking the enormous amount of upside with him this
along with stacking him with Allen to double up my points and going after some
bigger fish to pair him up with in lineups ( pun intended).

The position is so thin, and you almost have to go big at TE to maximize points in
the lineups. But with 4 teams on a bye I am rolling with Olson in this one with top

TE production upside. Coming off a good game in GB and the fact he is developing
a relationship with Kyle Allen, Falcons struggled last week guarding cook I like
Olson here.


The bears offense is really bad. And really predictable . That never bodes well in
the NFL. The Rams have scored double digits fantasy points in 2 of the past 3 roll
them out there this week in what should be a low scoring affair and expect Mitchy
Poo to take sacks, not be able to read the defense and turn the ball over. Ya know
the norm.

Chol's PICKS

QB-Nick Foles

Big Dick Nick is back this week and he is going to make it a point to prove that the Jacksonville job should be his. The team paid alot to get him this off season and it seems like alot of fans have forgotten this after seeing Garnder Minshew and his mustache. Expect BIG things form nick this week.


Jacobs is going against the number 29 ranked overall defense, which is also ranked 32nd in rushing yards per game given up. His price is also bumped up a tad this week which in my mind will have many people elect to pay up a little more for other options or down for Brian Hill or other cheap plays. He will be the forgotten man.

WR- Debo Samuel
Kittle and Manny Sanders are both going to be out for this game and Samuel is starting to hit a nice groove. His ownership should be somewhere around 30% but it looks like this may be worth it at his cost. His price will be going up alot in the next few weeks so get your shares now.

TE-OJ Howard
We finally got something from him last week after! I think that this will continue into this matchup. Lets be honest though, tightend is really a tossup if you dont have a top 5 guy so any play beyond the solid 5 is going to come with risk. I will take my risk with Howard at his cost.

I love the matchup against Denver and honestly I would pay almost any price for this. I am penciling them in. I also like the 49ers, Bills, and Jets so it really depend son whattype of budget you have left after filling in the rest of your team.

McKissic will be involved in the passing game as usual but because of injuries he may get his fair share of carries also. The play is a stretch but Dallasis a bit soft defending RBs in the passing game. They have let up the 6th most receptions to RBs in the league and McKissic played in 70% of the Lions offensive snaps last week. Take the risk.
