We never thought of separation if things didn’t please us. A marriage is not a flash dress, a wedding cake, a big crown and a party, that is not what marriage is all about. That’s what young people think it is today. But it’s something more than that.

From LSU at Alabama to San Jose State at Hawaii to Iowa State at Oklahoma, there are plenty of great matchups and potential sleepers on this week’s DraftKings slate.Before getting into this week’s picks, just a reminder that if you’re looking for more help setting your season-long or DFS lineups, check out the comprehensive Week 11 college fantasy football rankings at CFBDynasty.

GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP Week 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: QBsBest Start: Jamie Newman, Wake Forest at Virginia Tech ($8,400). Newman returned in Week 10 from a shoulder injury to put up 317 total yards and five TDs in less than three quarters. This week he gets to face a Virginia Tech defense that is giving up more than 400 yards and four TDs per game. That, coupled with a projected 63.5-point over/under, should give Newman plenty of opportunities for another big performance. Best Value: Brock Purdy, Iowa State at Oklahoma ($7,900). Purdy has been somewhat inconsistent this season from a fantasy perspective, ranging from 16 fantasy points in a game all the way up to 55. This week Iowa State goes on the road to take on Oklahoma in Norman. Purdy should have all the work he can handle as the Cyclones try to keep pace with the powerful Sooner offense. Best Sleeper: Kyle Trask, Florida vs Vanderbilt ($6,400). Trask has been very impressive since taking over for the injured Feleipe Franks, averaging 247 passing yards and at least two TDs over the past six games. This week the Gators host SEC rival Vanderbilt, whose defense currently 99th in passing and 103rd in scoring, should not provide much of a hindrance. Trask should be able to put up some big numbers.MORE: CFBDynasty player rankingsWeek 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: RBsBest Start: Max Borghi, Washington State at California ($7,800). Borghi’s all around game is what makes him so valuable, both to the Cougars and fantasy owners. Last week Oregon held Borghi to only 54 rushing yards and one TD on eight carries, but he made up for the lack of rushing by catching eight passes for another 70 yards. This week Washington State goes on the road to take on California, whose early-season defensive dominance has slipped in recent games. Look for Borghi to be used all over the field as one of the Cougars primary offensive weapons. Best Value: Breece Hall, Iowa State at Oklahoma State ($6,800). Since being unleashed in Week 7, Hall has had three straight games with at least 30 fantasy points. This week’s matchup with Oklahoma will be against a much tougher opponent, but Hall’s big-game potential is definitely worth using. The Cyclones have found their bellcow RB and will continue to ride him.Best Sleeper: David Bailey, Boston College vs. Florida State ($4,700). While he is currently stuck behind superstar RB A.J. Dillon, Bailey has still put up solid numbers, including going over 170 yards and two TDs in two of the past three weeks. Boston College loves to pound the footbal,l and this week’s matchup against Florida State’s mediocre run defense will be a great opportunity for both RBs to do just that. Week 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: WRsBest Start: James Proche, SMU vs. East Carolina ($7,300). Proche has been spectacular in the SMU offense this season, scoring double-digit fantasy points in every game this season, including seven games of over 20 fantasy points. The injury to fellow WR Reggie Roberson has increased his usage, and last week Proche took full advantage, turning 13 receptions into 149 yards and a touchdown. He will continue to the Mustangs’ primary target in Week 11 as SMU hosts East Carolina.Best Value: Devin Duvernay, Texas vs. Kansas State ($6,500). Duvernay has been a fantasy monster this season, averaging almost nine receptions for 100 yards and one TD per game. He should have another big game as QB Sam Ehlinger will continue to look his way this week in a tough matchup against Big 12 rival Kansas State. Best Sleeper: Corey Sutton, Appalachian State at South Carolina ($5,200). Sutton has been solid since returning from a two-game suspension to open the season, catching 28 passes for 345 yards and three TDs. The Mountaineers will need a huge game from his this week as they try to keep pace on the road with SEC opponent South Carolina. Look for Appalachian to throw to Sutton early and often.
