Welcome again to our weekly look at the top DFS approaches and strategies to employ in FanDuel tournaments.

Last week felt uncomfortable — even from a tournament perspective — but there were still some great plays, including Robert Woods, who was a true GPP-winner in Week 10.

Week 11 will likely feature some more not-so-obvious names helping you take down tournaments, but overall, I think you’ll enter Week 11 feeling better about your lineup than you did last week.

Below are some possible strategies for you to employ for Week 11 FanDuel GPPs.

Quarterback

Quarterbacks I like in FanDuel tournaments this week:

Wentz is an outrageous $8,700, which I think will keep ownership lower, especially when Tom Brady is $100 cheaper in an even better spot. But for tournament purposes, Wentz has four-touchdown upside, and you won’t care what he cost if he reaches that potential.

Brady is most certainly in play in Mexico City against the Raiders in a game with an over-under of 53.5 — and rising. That’s the highest of the week.

I like Prescott as a contrarian play on Sunday night against the Eagles, a team that is actually only middling against quarterbacks despite their impressive real-life record. Box-score hunters will see Prescott with fewer than 180 passing yards and zero touchdowns in two of his past three games, plus Brady for only $100 more. But Prescott has a rushing touchdown in four of his past five outings, and he has 22-plus FanDuel points in five of his past seven. This game against the Eagles could easily turn into a shootout.

I lay out the case for Smith and Manning in my cash game guide, and Bortles is in play against the Browns, who have given up the second-most passing touchdowns this year (19) despite seeing the fifth-fewest pass attempts against (286).

Cutler has actually been decent, which flies in the face of conventionally thought and is something you can take advantage of. He’s only $6,600, but he has multiple touchdowns in four straight games and pairs extremely well with his pass-catchers for tournament purposes.
