Expert DRAFTing Week 11

A how-to-guide to beating this week's snake drafts on DRAFT

Main Slate 

DRAFT offers weekly fantasy contests with 5-man rosters (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR/TE) and 0.5-point PPR scoring (the same as FanDuel).  But instead of using a salary cap like other daily fantasy sites, teams are built through live snake drafts with 30-seconds per pick. The most common contest sizes are Head-to-Head, 3-Team, 6-Team and 10-Team. 

First, we will dive into the rankings and draft strategy for each of the four Draft sizes. If you are interested in why the players are ranked where they are in the overall rankings, make sure to check out the in-depth breakdowns of the top options in the positional rankings. 

The goal of this article is two-fold: First, to give you strong rankings that can be used directly so you can profit in your Drafts if you follow exactly. Second, to include plenty of strategy thoughts, player research and analysis to provide a useful resource for those who want to form their own rankings based upon their own research and gut feelings on players.

Friday Afternoon Injury Update on Leonard Fournette

Late-breaking news on Fournette’s status for Sunday has a decent-sized impact on the slate. It takes away one of the few strong running back options on the slate. Due to the uncertainty and the likely RBBC with T.J. Yeldon, Corey Grant and Chris Ivory, we don’t have a strong replacement option for Fournette either. The Draft Rankings below are now updated as of Friday afternoon.

Theme of the Week: Projection Parity Most weeks, it feels like you can dissect expected usage and matchups, do projections, and find any real separation between the options at the top of the board. It is much tougher to do so in Week 11 at running back (behind Kareem Hunt) and at the top of the wide receiver/tight end board. You can make a solid case for any of a handful of running backs at 1.02 and there are least a half dozen different players at the WR/TE position with a good case to rank as the top guy. 

Having participated in a number of Drafts this week, I can also report that this uncertainty is definitely being reflected in terms of ADP. I can’t remember a week where every Draft has been so wildly different and where it seems like no consensus in terms of ADP has emerged. I’ve seen Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram II, and Carson Wentz go 1.01 or 1.02 in multiple drafts and I’ve also seen them go completely undrafted in 3-Team Contests. Each Draft (especially Head-to-Head and 3-Team) is playing out with such massive differences and you will be much more likely to land your top-rated players because everyone’s board will likely look different.

Head-to-Head Draft Rankings and Strategy

1. Kareem Hunt

2. Tom Brady

3. Todd Gurley

4. Travis Kelce

5. Rob Gronkowski

6. Mike Evans

7. Mark Ingram II

8. Melvin Gordon III

9. Michael Thomas

10. Russell Wilson

As detailed in-depth in the positional rankings, Kareem Hunt’s matchup makes him the clear top back and the top choice at 1.01 this week. While there is some concern about his touchdown upside based upon the last few weeks, the matchup and likely game script point toward Hunt breaking the cold streak. The Chiefs are 10.5-point favorites coming off of a bye and the game script sets up perfectly for Hunt to have a big day. 

At 1.02, locking in the top quarterback on the slate, Tom Brady is the way to go. While many sources have Brady and Russell Wilson projected for very similar fantasy scores, Brady has a much more attractive combination of floor and ceiling. The Patriots have the week’s highest implied team total (30.3) and Brady has a dream matchup. Oakland ranks dead last in pass defense DVOA (and overall defensive DVOA). The last we saw the Raiders, they were allowing Jay Cutler to throw for 311 yards and 3 touchdowns. Brady has a two-touchdown floor in this matchup and it shouldn’t be a surprise if he throws for four or five touchdowns this week. Wilson’s matchup against Atlanta is much tougher. The Falcons have allowed just 11 passing touchdowns in 9 games, despite having faced many of the league’s best quarterbacks. Atlanta held Cam Newton and Dak Prescott to zero passing touchdowns over the past two weeks. While the gap between the two passers isn’t massive, the same can be said about the gap at other positions.

I am willing to overlook the tough matchup somewhat for Todd Gurley and favor him at 2.01. He has been a touchdown machine and should see heavy usage in a game that could determine one of the byes in the NFC playoffs. 

The wide receiver/tight end position is absolutely wide open this week with any of a half-dozen players having a decent case for top-ranking. Trust your gut and own research and go with whichever of the top options you feel best about this week even more than normal because there is little consensus about the position this week. As the week has gone on, the more I am gravitating toward the top two tight ends as the best options this week due to higher touchdown expectation than the top wide receivers. Travis Kelce is riding a 3-game touchdown streak and faces a Giants defense that has allowed a touchdown to an opposing tight end in every single game. Gronkowski is always a good bet to score a touchdown and with a favorable matchup against the Raiders and a Patriots implied team total that has bumped up past 30 points, he is an especially good bet to find the end zone in Week 11.

3-Team Draft Rankings and Strategy

1. Kareem Hunt

2. Todd Gurley

3. Tom Brady

4. Travis Kelce

5. Rob Gronkowski

6. Mike Evans

7. Mark Ingram II

8. Melvin Gordon III

9. Alvin Kamara

10. Russell Wilson

11. Michael Thomas

12. Julio Jones

13. LeSean McCoy

14. Alex Smith

15. Brandin Cooks

As detailed in the positional write-ups below and the Head-to-Head strategy discussion above, I feel Hunt is the clear 1.01 in all Draft sizes. Todd Gurley and Tom Brady also have just enough separation from their positional competition to make them worthy first-round selections in 3-Team Drafts.

However, the main takeaway from 3-Team Drafts this week is that everyone is going to have these players ranked in different orders and every 3-Team Draft will play out with huge differences in the order of players coming off the board. There is a good reason for that. It is extremely difficult to separate the options at each position because the projections and risk/reward for each of these players available from Round 2 through Round 5 of 3-Team Drafts is so close to the other options at their positions. As such, it is easy to wait until the final round at any of the positions without suffering any real damage in terms of expectations. In short, feel free to just take the players you like best because there aren’t any tiers or clearly superior options that dictate a certain strategical approach.

I’ve laid out in extra detail why I rank the players as I do in the positional write-ups below. You can see how and why I am approaching Drafts in this manner for Week 11 and hopefully I have provided enough information for you to make an informed decision if you want to formulate your own rankings. 

6-Team Draft Rankings and Strategy

1. Kareem Hunt

2. Todd Gurley

3. Mark Ingram II

4. Melvin Gordon III

5. Alvin Kamara

6. LeSean McCoy

7. Tom Brady

8. Travis Kelce

9. Rob Gronkowski

10. Mike Evans

11. Jordan Howard

12. Tevin Coleman

13. Michael Thomas

14. Julio Jones

15. Brandin Cooks

16. Russell Wilson

17. Jay Ajayi

18. Alex Smith

19. Carson Wentz

20. Doug Baldwin

21. Tyreek Hill

22. A.J. Green

23. Drew Brees

24. Kirk Cousins

25. Chris Thompson

26. DeAndre Hopkins

27. Zach Ertz

28. Larry Fitzgerald

29. Lamar Miller

30. Doug Martin

The first round of 6-Team Drafts should be reserved exclusively for the top tier of running backs. The projected touches and/or efficiency falls off of the cliff after the top-8 running backs. Lock in your RB1 in the first round and be aggressive in rounds 2 and 3 to lock up your RB2 if one of the top-8 backs are still available. The options at the position are either very risky (Jay Ajayi) or lacking in upside (Chris Thompson, Doug Martin and Lamar Miller) if you wait too long. 

With Nathan Peterman slated for his first start, Melvin Gordon III joins the tp tier of backs despite his decreasing share of the workload in San Diego. He has played less than 70% of the snaps each of the last three games, as Austin Ekeler has emerged as an excellent change-of-pace option. However, Buffalo has given up 100.5 Draft points to opposing running backs over the past two weeks (over 50 points per week)! The Bills run defense has collapsed since the trade of Marcell Dareus to the Jaguars. With a rookie quarterback at the helm, San Diego should also have more red zone opportunities than normal.

One of the key decision points will be where to take Tevin Coleman. I’m erring on the side of caution and letting others take him unless he falls into the 3rd round. The matchup against Seattle is extremely difficult, with the Seahawks allowing the 4th-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Terron Ward should also have a role in the backfield and may vulture touchdown opportunities. Ward handled 4-of-7 red zone carries for Atlanta last week. 

Quarterback is relatively deep this week. The decision of who to take at QB6 will depend upon health reports for Dallas left tackle Tyron Smith. If Smith plays, Prescott should pick up where he left off as a strong QB1 option and is a strong late-round option in 6-Team Drafts. If Smith misses again, Prescott will rank well outside the top-6. Pressure from the blind side with Smith out wrecked the Cowboys offense in Week 10. Until we have clarity on Smith, Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins are much safer options in the final round. 

There are a number of strong options to stack this week, which is always an ideal strategy in 6-Team Drafts. Tom Brady with Brandin Cooks or Rob Gronkowski, Alex Smith with Tyreek Hill or Travis Kelce, and Drew Brees with Michael Thomas are all ideal pairings in 6-Team Drafts.

38. Jerick McKinnon

39. Adrian Peterson

40. Matthew Stafford

41. Dak Prescott

42. Derek Carr

43. Matt Ryan

44. Jarvis Landry

45. Marqise Lee

46. Robert Woods

47. Kenyan Drake

48. Rex Burkhead

49. Ameer Abdullah

50. Duke Johnson Jr

As in 6-Team Drafts, there is a huge premium value with the top running backs. The drop off from the top backs to part-time backs like Rex Burkhead and Kenyan Drake is huge. Thus, 9-of-10 picks in the first round should be running backs. 

Quarterback and Wide Receiver/Tight End are both much deeper this week. Quarterback is an especially strong position. Derek Carr and Matt Ryan rank as QB9 and QB10 and both have very solid projections of 16+ points with plenty of upside for more. Matt Ryan’s matchup versus the Seattle pass defense looks scary on paper. However, Seattle will be without Richard Sherman and likely won’t have Kam Chancellor either. There is no reason to reach for a quarterback this week. All that being said, Tom Brady has such a massive ceiling, he is worth gambling on in the first round. He could easily win you the week with 350+ yards and 4 touchdowns against a horrible Raiders defense. 

Similarly, wide receiver goes beyond 20-deep with strong options. When talented players like Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery, Keenan Allen and Amari Cooper don’t even rank in the top-20 in decent matchups, you know there will be plenty of strong options at the position still available in the final two rounds. In separating the top options and figuring out who to prioritize at WR/TE, the focus has to be on touchdown expectation. It is extremely difficult to win a 10-Team Draft without scoring at least four rushing/receiving touchdowns. Thus, the slight separation this week comes for players like Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski, and Mike Evans who have the best odds of finding the end zone.

Quarterback Rankings

  1. Tom Brady The matchups is absolutely ideal for Brady. Oakland is dead last in both defensive DVOA and pass defense DVOA. In recent outings, Oakland allowed 311 yards and 3 touchdowns to Jay Cutler and 342 yards and 3 touchdowns to Alex Smith. This will be a neutral site game, played in Mexico City. The 7,200-feet elevation could play a factor and the Patriots spent the week preparing.After winning in Denver on Sunday night, the Patriots took a bus ride to Colorado Springs, where they spent the week practicing at the Air Force Academy, which is 6,621 feet above sea level. It is also worth noting that 11-of-18 international games in recent years have gone over 50 total points, which is yet another reason to expect a shootout on Sunday.
  2. Russell Wilson The matchup isn’t great for Wilson. Atlanta has allowed just 11 passing touchdowns in 9 games this season and held Dak Prescott and Cam Newton to a combined total of just 264 passing yards and no passing touchdowns over the last two weeks. However, Wilson still remains a strong fantasy option because he is Seattle’s entire offense. He is on pace to set an NFL record by being personally responsible for 82.1% of the team’s offensive yards. The Seahawks running game (aside from Wilson) has been almost non-existent, which means almost all the offense will flow through Wilson. Wilson always has a solid floor and nice ceiling but it is worth noting that his big fantasy games this season have all come against awful pass defenses (Titans, Giants, and Texans). 
  3. Alex Smith Smith quietly ranks as the #3 fantasy quarterback this season in Draft scoring. He has a great matchup against a scuttling New York Giants defense that has given up at least 26 Draft points to each of the last three quarterbacks faced (including C.J. Beathard last week). This is another game where the early money has been coming in on the over. As of Thursday evening, the Chiefs implied team total sits at a healthy 28 points. It is also worth noting that Andy Reid is an incredible 16-2 in his career coming off of a bye. He puts the extra week of time to game plan to great use and will have some new wrinkles built in for a Giants defense that has had already been struggling with broken coverages. 
  4. Carson Wentz Wentz has gone as high as 1.01 in some Drafts this week and should be in for a solid day against the Cowboys but it is hard to justify ranking him at the top of the board this week at the position. The Eagles do have a solid 26.5-point implied team total as road favorites against Dallas but have been running the ball better of late. Plus, the Cowboys have only allowed an average of 221 passing yards per game this season.
  5. Drew Brees The Redskins rank 1st in the NFL in defensive pressure rate (32.7% per ESPN and 37.5% per Football Outsiders) and have strong cornerbacks. 
  6. Kirk Cousins Cousins has fared better than most against good defenses (as evidenced by his performance against the Vikings in Week 10) and the Saints 4th ranked pass defense certainly qualifies. Part of Cousins’ fantasy success can be traced to his sneaky ability as a runner. His 3 rushing TDs on the year ties him for fourth in the league among QBs and his 12 rushing scores since 2015 are tied for second in the NFL in that span behind only Cam Newton. 
  7. Dak Prescott The health of Tyron Smith will be a key for Prescott. If Smith is active, Prescott would rank 5th in these rankings. The way to beat Philadelphia is through the air. If Smith misses another week, Prescott could have a tough day against the Eagles pass rush (and would rank just 9th on this list). With Smith’s status up in the air, this ranking splits the difference.
  8. Matthew Stafford In his last 3 games, Matthew Stafford has 1,033 pass yards (344.3 per game), with 5 TDs & 1 INT for a 111.6 passer rating. He has a mediocre matchup however against a solid Bears defense in what Vegas projects as a low-scoring game (41-point total).
  9. Derek Carr
  10. Matt Ryan

Running Back Rankings

  1. Kareem Hunt Hunt might not be a slam dunk for everyone at 1.01 this week because he hasn’t found the end zone since Week 3 and it has been a while since he’s had a big fantasy performance. However, given how much better his matchup is compared to the matchups for all of the other top backs, Hunt looks like the clearcut top option overall this week. The Chiefs have a massive 28-point implied team total and are huge 10.5-point favorites. The game script couldn’t be much more attractive for Hunt. Plus, the Giants rank just 27th in DVOA against the run and 24th in pass defense DVOA against opposing running backs. 
  2. Todd Gurley As mentioned in the “Theme of the Week” section, there are a number of backs with a solid case to rank #2 at the position this week. Since we have to gamble on one of these backs at 1.02, I lean towards putting my chips down on 2017’s highest-scoring fantasy running back (21 Draft points per game) on the NFL highest-scoring offense despite the tough matchup (Vikings have allowed just 3 touchdowns to opposing backs this season). Gurley’s Rams are road underdogs, facing one of the league’s best run defenses, and the Vikings have been stingy against opposing running backs this season. However, Minnesota has allowed four rushing touchdowns in the last two weeks and aren’t likely to completely shut down the league’s top offense. Gurley has also had an opportunity to get some rest each of the last two weeks with the Rams blowing out there opponents. The Rams are likely to feed him heavily both as a runner and receiver (18 targets in last three games) in a hugely important game that could determine which team receives a first-round bye in the playoffs.
  3. Mark Ingram II Mark Ingram II and Alvin Kamara project for 25-to-30 Draft points combined but we’re just guessing in terms of which half of the committee will have the bigger day. Ingram gets the slight nod over Kamara due to touchdown expectation. Ingram has scored 7 touchdowns in the 5 games since Adrian Peterson was traded (and ranks as RB2 over that stretch). Washington’s rush defense has been solid and should get a boost with the likely return of run-stuffer Matt Ioannidis. 
  4. Leonard Fournette While some of the metrics paint Cleveland as a dominant run defense, the unit still ranks just 12th-best in terms of fantasy points per game allowed to opposing running backs. The path of least resistance against the Browns defense is through the air but that shouldn’t stop Jacksonville from stubbornly pounding away with Fournette. Especially since the dominant Jacksonville defense isn’t likely to give up many points and should provide the Jaguars offense with favorable field position. 
  5. Melvin Gordon III If Gordon was likely to see 80% of the snaps and touches like he did last season and many of the early games, he would rank as a clear top-2 back this week. However, the Chargers have been mixing in Austin Ekeler more and more. Gordon hasn’t topped 70% of the snaps in any of the last three weeks. Perhaps even more concerning, Ekeler has looked more explosive and been more effective. Even if Gordon only sees a bit over half of the touches, he could still have a big day against this Buffalo defense that has looked awful in recent weeks. New Orleans ran 24 straight times last week and even knowing what was coming, the Bills defense couldn’t stop them. 
  6. Alvin Kamara Since the Adrian Peterson trade, only four running backs have more fantasy points than Kamara. He has been incredibly efficient, averaging 6.5 yards per carry. However, the amount of touches is a major concern. Kamara is still playing fewer snaps and seeing far fewer carries than Mark Ingram II. Washington also represents a step up in competition compared to recent opponents, so the Saints may not be able to play conservatively and just lean heavily on their running backs. 
  7. LeSean McCoy On paper, this is a prime matchup for McCoy. The Chargers have allowed 1,541 total yards to opposing backs (2nd most behind only San Francisco). The Chargers have been stout in the red zone, however (4 touchdowns allowed). Plus, LeSean McCoy has not scored a touchdown on the road all season and averages a measly 2.7 yards per carry away from home. McCoy’s fantasy stock also falls a bit with unproven rookie Nathan Peterman now piloting the offense. McCoy still ranks as a top-7 option due to his workload but the questions about his efficiency and likelihood of finding the end zone are real.
  8. Jordan Howard
  9. Tevin Coleman The workload should be there for Coleman with Devonta Freeman sitting out due to a concussion. Terron Ward will get some carries (it is worth noting that he handled 4-of-7 red zone carries for Atlanta last week) but Coleman should see 20 touches. However, even with 20 touches, there is no guarantee of fantasy success against a Seattle defense that is allowing less than 3.0 yards per carry at home this season. The Falcons implied team total is just under 21 points.
  10. Jay Ajayi Ajayi is a bit of a wild card this week because it is anyone’s guess just how much usage he will get and if the Eagles will get him involved at all as a pass catcher. Ajayi passed the eye test in his 17 snaps in his Eagles debut, breaking off a long touchdown run. It shouldn’t be a surprise if he sees only a small increase in snaps this week, with the Eagles gradually ramping up his usage over the next month. He barely saw the field in Week 9 until garbage time. It also shouldn’t be a huge surprise if he sees 18-20 touches. Ajayi is a boom/bust option for drafters willing to roll the dice on his upside.
  11. Chris Thompson
  12. Lamar Miller
  13. Doug MartinMartin is a sneakily strong RB2 option in Week 11. He saw 20 carries and 2 targets last week, so the potential for another solid workload is there. He is also facing a bad Dolphins defense that has been gashed by running backs in recent weeks, which means Martin should see an increase in his yardage per carry and have a better chance of finding the end zone for the first time Week 6. 
  14. Marshawn Lynch
  15. Joe Mixon
  16. Jerick McKinnon
  17. Adrian Peterson
  18. Kenyan Drake
  19. Rex Burkhead Burkhead saw a season-high in snaps (36) and touches (13) last week against Denver. He is the favorite to lead the Patriots in both categories in Week 11 in a potential shootout. The upside is there even if he again sees only 10-15 touches because they should be high-value touches in the passing game and in the red zone.

Wide Receiver and Tight End Rankings

  1. Travis Kelce Amazingly, the Giants have allowed a touchdown to an opposing tight end in every single game this season. Kelce has never caught more than five touchdowns in any season but has been on a hot streak of late, scoring in three straight. He has a good shot to keep that streak going in a game in which the Chiefs have a 28-point implied team total. 
  2. Rob Gronkowski There is a solid case for Gronkowski to be the first WR/TE off the board in Drafts this week. The Patriots have the highest implied team total on the slate (31.3 points) and have a great passing matchup against the Raiders 32nd ranked DVOA pass defense. The Raiders defense has been giving up close to 55 yards per game to the tight end position and just gave up 84 yards and 1 touchdown to Julius Thomas in their last outing. Rob Gronkowski is a mismatch against both the slow linebackers, who lack the speed to stay with him and Raiders safeties like Karl Joseph, who lack the size. Kelce gets the slight nod over Gronkowski because even without Chris Hogan, the Patriots spread the ball around to more pass-catching targets than the Chiefs do.
  3. Mike Evans You can likely get Evans much lower in Drafts than his WR1 ranking, so there is no reason to reach for him. In a deep field of receivers and tight ends this week with no clearcut top option, Evans narrowly edges out the field based on his combination of floor and ceiling in what looks like a fantastic matchup.The Dolphins now rank dead last in overall DVOA and are 31st defensively. Miami is especially bad against the pass (31st in DVOA) and defending opposing #1 Wide Receivers (26th DVOA). Evans should have a big day and has a good shot at getting loose for a long score. Opponents have thrown long touchdowns of at least 29 yards in 5 straight games. The only drawback with Evans is that you have to trust Ryan Fitzpatrick to get him the ball. While the concern is legitimate, Fitzpatrick has never been shy about taking chances and throwing up the ball to his big #1 wide receiver, which led to plenty of fantasy success for guys like Brandon Marshall in the past.
  4. Michael Thomas The Redskins rank 23rd in total yards allowed (344.6), 17th in yards per drive allowed (29) and 22nd in yards per play allowed (5.5). Cornerbacks Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland ranked amongst the league’s best in terms of fewest yards allowed to opposing receivers coming into Week 10 but both struggled last week against the Vikings. The matchup isn’t great for Thomas but he is the most consistent of the Saints passing game options. The question will be whether the Washington run defense can force Drew Brees in the Saints to throw the ball downfield or if the Saints can just pound away with their running backs, as they have in recent weeks. 
  5. Julio JonesJones didn’t practice Thursday and has been nursing a sore ankle. However, he effectively played through the injury and doesn’t appear to be at any risk of missing the game Monday night against the Seahawks. Jones projects for a nice yardage day against a Seattle secondary that lacks top cornerback Richard Sherman. However, Jones has caught just one touchdown this season and at this point doesn’t deserve the benefit of the doubt as to his likelihood of finding the end zone on a weekly basis.
  6. Brandin Cooks Cooks is a little bit more boom/bust than the players ranked above (Patriots pass game usage is always tough to predict) but he has as much upside as any wide receiver on the slate this weekend. The Raiders are likely to be without top cornerback David Amerson and lack speed at the position. It’s a perfect matchup for Cooks to get loose behind the defense for a long touchdown. 
  7. Doug Baldwin
  8. Tyreek Hill Hill has interesting Home/Road splits for his career, with most of his career production coming on the road. 67 of his 101 career receptions and 10 of his 16 touchdowns have come on the road. He has 467 of his 617 receiving yards and all 4 of his TDs this season on the road. An added reason to love his upside this week against a bad Giants defense. Hill is very reliant on a long touchdown to have fantasy value so he is always a high-risk gamble.
  9. A.J. Green The matchup looks rough for Green. Not only do you have to worry about the Broncos excellent cornerbacks locking him down, you also have to worry about whether Von Miller and company are terrorizing Andy Dalton in the backfield and making it impossible for the Cincinnati pass offense to function. If the Bengals horrid offensive tackles can hold up at all against the pass rush, Green should have a good game. He is talented enough to get open against Aqib Talib and company.
  10. DeAndre Hopkins The matchup couldn’t get much tougher for Hopkins against Patrick Peterson. Arizona has given up just 42.5 yards per game to opposing #1 wide receivers. 
  11. Zach Ertz It is always a bit risky to target a player returning from a hamstring injury due to the risk of re-aggravation. However, Ertz has been a strong fantasy option when healthy and has the potential for a big day against a mediocre Dallas defense.
  12. Larry Fitzgerald It is tough to rely on Blaine Gabbert but the Texans defense has allowed 7 touchdowns to opposing receivers over the past 3 weeks and is a unit that should be targeted in fantasy.
