Week 11 is already upon us and there’s another fantastic set of NFL DFS contests on FanTeam this Sunday. This week, there is both a Redzone and a Fumble contest. The Week 11 Fanteam Redzone slate consists of the nine 6pm matchups and the Fumble focuses on the trio of late starters around 9pm. Each slate offers a different challenge but both provide an amazing three hour sweat of NFL DFS action.
The Redzone contest has a €2 and a €12 entry fee with guaranteed prize pools of €2.5k and €7.5k respectively. The Fumble has the same buy-in levels with prize pools of €600 and €1.5k respectively. These are all multi-entry contests so you can pick all your favourite players.
We’re also bringing you another exclusive 5 Yard Rush contest! Now that everyone has had two weeks of practice, we’ve changed it up a bit. There’s a guaranteed prize pool of £200 with an entry fee of £1 but this week you can have up to 10 entries.

To help you with your lineups, we’ve identified some plays from both the Week 11 Fanteam Redzone and the Fumble slates which we think should do well:
Joe Burrow- Cincinnati Bengals – 18.5m
Burrow comes off the much needed bye and gets given the Raiders, who are not only in free fall, but coming off their worst performance of the season vs Mahomes and the Chiefs. Burrow will not be one of the top priced options this week, yet could easily represent value as Murf has Burrow ranked at Number 5 in his Quarterback Rankings this week. The Raiders are a bottom 10 defence in fantasy points allowed to Quarterbacks. However, after this one, they could easily fall into the bottom 5.
Cam Newton- Carolina Panthers – 17.4m
HE’s BAAAAACK!!! And what a game he has for his first match-up. The Washington Football Team are coming off the back of an impressive win vs the defending champion Buccaneers last Sunday. However, they are the worst team in the NFL when it comes to fantasy points allowed to Quarterbacks. Cam represents a safe floor, cheaper option at the position. The Football Team pass rush is also greatly diminished as former Defensive Rookie of the Year Chase Young is out for the season. Expect Cam, surely on his last life as an NFL starter, to prevail with solid numbers on Sunday.
David Montgomery- Chicago Bears – 14.0m
Montgomery has had a bye to get fully healthy. Therefore, he should be ready to run the ball against the Ravens, who have struggled against the run this season. The Ravens are a bottom 10 defense in fantasy points allowed to Running Backs. Therefore, a poor running defense, mixed with the volume opportunity that Montgomery will have, as well as being below the elite pricing, should equal a significant bargain, and opportunity here.
Nick Chubb- Cleveland Browns – 17.3m
The Browns offense does not work without a strong running game. In their defeats this season, they have been forced to make plays through the air. Something that they do not excel in. The Browns are in last chance saloon for a playoff berth. This week, they get the winless Lions. That should represent a real opportunity for Chubb to excel and put up the numbers that have Murf ranking him inside his top 3 at the position this week.
Brandin Cooks- Houston Texans – 14.6m
Cooks will represent enormous value this week. The Texans will be in a negative game script for most of this one, and will need to sling the rock. In addition to this, they play the Titans, who have the worst defense in the NFL for points allowed to Wide Receivers. The Titans defense has been good this season in the trenches and in the middle of the field. However, it’s a secondary that gets scored on with ease. If the Texans want to attempt anything in this game, with Tyrod Taylor back, Cooks will get peppered with a lot of targets this week.
Marquise “Hollywood” Brown- Baltimore Ravens – 15.1m
Brown has six 19 Fanteam point outings this season from nine games so far this season. However, the Bears are the worst defense he would have faced this season. Whilst the Bears have had some success stopping the run this season, they have been passed on at will at times this season. This has seen this once stoic defense fall to the second worst defense in fantasy points allowed to Wide Receivers. I would expect Brown to be a popular pick this week. Therefore, don’t miss the train, and make sure you sprinkle him in some lineups this week.
Dan Arnold- Jacksonville Jaguars – 10.5m
Arnold represents the safest value play in the lineup this week. In 4 of his last 5 games, he has reached that pivotal 10 Fanteam point mark. He is someone who represents enormous value as it is likely 4-60 will happen again this week. If he lands a Touchdown vs 49ers on Sunday, it will be gravy, that will likely propel you to a cash situation, if you land some of the other positions.
Travis Kelce- Kansas City Chiefs – 18.6m
It will be hard to get Kelce into lineups this week with the pricing. However, with some of the value picks above, it should be do-able. Kelce ranks first in Fanteam points this season at the position. And, the Chiefs looked back to their best vs Raiders last time out. With this matchup vs Dallas Cowboys expected to be a shootout, expect the Dallas defense to allow Kelce to get his yards up the middle, and make it difficult for Mahomes to find chunk plays outside to Hill and co. This should be a big week for Kelce and it will be well worth the price on the Week 11 Fanteam Redzone slate if it plays out the way I would expect from a schematic sense. If the Cowboys play a lot of zone and cover 2, Kelce could be in for a very big day indeed.
