Another week in the gradebook for the NFL season. Week 11 was another rise of the machines week with RotoGrinders – Lineup Builder and DailyRoto – Optimizer leading the way. Meanwhile, a machine in human form from FantasyTeamAdvice is starting to run away with the overall top spot.
On to the Week 11 grades, class is in session!
Consensus Recap – Week 11
The Industry Consensus picks finished right in the middle of the pack this week with a 10th place finish out of 20 experts graded.
QB (Score: 5.25 / Rank 6th out of 22) – Consensus had the top 2 QBs on the slate Drew Brees and Cam Newton.
RB (Score: 3.83 / Rank 15th out of 22) – The top 2 RBs on the slate, Saquon Barkly and Ezekiel Elliott where in the top three recommended options but it went downhill from there.
WR (Score: 2.00 / Rank 11th out of 22) – Poor overall showing from the Consensus at WR with no “A+” grades and just one “A” from Kenny Golladay.
TE (Score: 3.00 / Rank 5th out of 22) – The top TE option Jordan Reed was on the list of a tough position this week.
D/ST (Score: 5.00 / Rank 6th out of 19) – Two good options (Texans, Saints) and two poor options (Cardinals, Ravens).

Study Time – Week 11
If we are going to give a gold star to the top experts of the week, we also need to determine which experts might need to put in some extra study time to pull up those grades. Here are the Week 11 experts that didn’t make the grade this week.
- DraftKings Playbook – Cash Picks (Score: 1.88) were let down by Carson Wentz, Dion Lewis, Amari Cooper and Corey Davis.

A+ – T.Y. Hilton (DailyOverlay – Hot Sheet / DailyOverlay – Cash Index)
