Our friend, Jake Ciely of The Athletic, is with us to go over the best DFS cash game (2:21) and GPP (38:41) plays this week! Which WR makes sense as the optimal high-end option between Terry McLaurin (6:29) and Keenan Allen (7:54)? There is no shortage of viable cash game RBs all across the main slate from Mike Davis (2:23) to Gio Bernard (23:42), Salvon Ahmed (26:03), and Kalen Ballage (27:17). Would it be wise for savvy GPP players to take a chance on Alex Smith (44:07)? NOTE: This show was recorded before the D'Andre Swift concussion news. His status is now in doubt for the Lions-Panthers game. Sponsors: Omaha Steaks - Omaha Steaks isn’t just “steak,” it’s a guaranteed fantastic gift and a safe way to share the joy of the season.

Ryan Noonan of FTN is with us as we share our favorite starts (5:45), fades (41:19), and sleepers (57:30) for Week 11. Why should fantasy managers seriously consider Kalen Ballage (5:56) as a viable RB2 this week and possibly even a consistent flex option moving forward? Should we trust Joe Burrow (27:38) and his high volume in a tough matchup against Washington and is it crazy to expect Kareem Hunt (44:20) to be a borderline RB1 option against the Eagles' run defense? We finish the show by breaking down Thursday's matchup between Arizona and Seattle (1:02:47) and the guys attempt to understand how best to approach Seattle's backfield (1:05:58).

Trevor Sikkema of The Draft Network joins us on our final trade show of the year as we recap Monday night's game (4:55), discuss a plethora of trade candidates (16:53), and share our biggest rest of season risers and fallers (55:31)! Frustrated fantasy managers have been flocking to sell Michael Thomas (17:21) ahead of the trade deadline and Duke Johnson (32:01) has become a prime target for teams looking to make a playoff push. Would it be wise to sell high and capitalize on Ronald Jones' (50:54) big game last week? We finish the show by dipping into the listener mailbag (1:09:30). Can Taysom Hill (1:10:03) be played a top-12 TE the rest of the way considering the position's dearth of production?

Scott Engel of RotoBaller joins us to discuss this week's top pickups at every position (2:43) and the guys give their thoughts on who it's time to consider dropping (51:33)! What kind of impact will the injuries to Teddy Bridgewater (3:49) and Drew Brees (5:55) have on their respective offenses? Is Salvon Ahmed (13:56) or Alex Collins (26:15) the best short-term RB add and who is the better long-term bet between Cam Akers (9:05) and Nyheim Hines (14:34)? Will Kalen Ballage (21:57) to lead the Chargers' backfield until Austin Ekeler returns, does Sammy Watkins (32:06) get too many targets to leave on waivers, and how attractive of a fantasy option is Jameis Winston (44:51) for the foreseeable future?

We're back to analyze all the Sunday afternoon NFL action! Can J.D. McKissic (5:04) be trusted for the rest of the season and what's Tags' problem with Brandon Aiyuk (8:53)? Is Aaron Jones (18:46) no longer a bell-cow RB, or was Jamaal Williams' sizeable chunk of the workload a fluke? Does Jerry Jeudy's (39:31) target volume make him a weekly plug-and-play option, or is he still far too inconsistent for fantasy managers to rely upon? Also, how much of a hit would Michael Thomas' (52:24) value take with Jameis Winston under center? Timestamps: Trust or Bust - 0:02:22 Ronald Jones - 0:02:32 Wayne Gallman - 0:04:01 J.D.
