DraftKings Week 11 GPP Breakdown
Week 10 Millionaire Maker winner tiewa took down the grand prize by targeting the Saints defense with this QB (what else is new) and rostering a pair of breakout RBs in perceived bad matchups, Jeremy Langford and Charcandrick West.
Once again, we see opposing passing game correlation with Allen Robinson and Kamar Aiken. Langford and West were the keys, however, as both were under five percent owned. Both backs served as a reminder that with volume comes upside, even in a tough matchup.
In the space below, I'll focus on players I believe to be strong tournament plays based on their potential for high volume, multi-touchdown upside, and low projected ownership. I won't blurb the chalk plays (Derek Carr, Charcandrick West, Devonta Freeman, Danny Amendola, Julio Jones, Amari Cooper, Greg Olsen, and the Seahawks)-- they're all justifiable GPP options (with Carr, West, Freeman, Amendola, and the Seahawks being particularly elite options), but you won't take home big money by stuffing your entire lineup with chalk. Use chalk plays selectively, a few at a time, filling out the rest of your roster with players likely to be low-owned who have high-volume and multi-touchdown upside in their range of outcomes.
As usual, I draw heavily from my Tournament Ownership Outlook column, and all the players I highlight below are players I believe you should have more exposure to than the field. Since who you fade can be just as important as who you play in a GPP, I've also added a "Fades" section at the end where I briefly highlight any highly-owned players that I believe you should have less exposure to than the field, or no exposure at all to.

Not only did Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis collectively account for 38 percent of the Patriots’ targets, but they were also responsible for 35 percent of the team's red zone targets. Combine that with the fact that Bill Belichick chose to deploy an extremely pass-heavy game plan last time his Patriots faced the Bills, and Rob Gronkowski ($7,700) could be in for monster volume. He torched the Bills for a 7-113-1 line back in Week 3.
