DraftKings NFL Week 11 Buy Sell + Optimal DFS Lineups

Over/Under Lookahead

One of the best ways to identify valuable DraftKings targets is projecting the game script and potential scoring production for both teams in any given matchup. Of course, we want to target the highest-scoring games on the week as those games will produce the most fantasy points. Game stacks are often a great way to reduce variability in a given lineup by securing more pieces from a higher-scoring game. As we head into November, the weather will continue to be a massive factor, so make sure you check out our matchup pages to stay apprised of the forecast. These are the games this week with the highest and lowest over/under totals (main slate only).

Quarterbacks

Players I’m Buying

baltimore ravensLamar Jackson ($7,300): He hasn’t been playing like the MVP-winning QB we saw last season, but Lamar Jackson has averaged 20 fantasy points per game over the past two weeks and has still been a reliable fantasy option. This week, he faces the Titans’ defense that has allowed the 8th-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Jackson has 50+ rushing yards in each of his past four games, giving him a very strong baseline, and the Titans have allowed 2.2 passing touchdowns per game, the fourth-most in the NFL. The fact that this is projected as one of the highest-scoring games of the week is the cherry on top and I see this as the launching pad for a strong close to the season for Lamar Jackson.

losangeleschargersnew100X100Justin Herbert ($6,800): The former Oregon quarterback is the early frontrunner for Offensive Rookie of the Year and his 16-game pace is stupendous – 4,600 passing yards with 38 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Herbert struggled last week against a really talented defense in the Dolphins as he threw for a season-low 187 passing yards. He salvaged his fantasy day with a rushing touchdown and has now scored 20+ fantasy points in all but one of his eight starts so far. This week, he has a perfect opportunity to bounce back against a Jets defense that has allowed the fourth-most passing yards per game and the fourth-most fantasy points to QBs per game. Herbert is well-worth spending up for this week.

new england patriotsCam Newton ($6,200): Cam Newton hasn’t exactly had an impressive season as he’s thrown for just 1,535 yards in 8 games and has thrown more than twice as many interceptions than touchdowns. However, his rushing production has kept him alive as a fantasy option and he already has 9 rushing touchdowns, putting him on pace to break his career-high mark of 14 rushing touchdowns set back in his rookie year. This week, the Patriots face the Texans who have allowed 167.4 rushing yards per game, more than any other NFL team. You’re not putting Newton in your lineup for his passing – that much is clear. However, the Pats are in a groove now with two straight wins and should be playing with the lead for most of this contest. Newton has multi-touchdown rushing upside this week.

philadelphia eaglesCarson Wentz ($5,700): Alright, I know. Carson Wentz has been an awful real-life quarterback. He’s completing just 58.2% of his passes and has thrown as many interceptions as touchdowns (12) this season. I get it – you’re not thrilled about his fantasy production with two 8-point efforts against the Cowboys and Giants in the past two weeks. However, the Eagles are getting back Zach Ertz this week after seeing Alshon Jeffery return this week and this team’s receiving corps is suddenly the healthiest its been all season. The Browns have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks and the 8th-most passing touchdowns per game, so I’m banking on a bit of a bounce-back from Wentz this week. He has a huge range of outcomes so he’s not someone to target for cash lineups, but in bigger tournaments he provides top-5 upside at a minuscule price.

Other quarterbacks I’m buying: Aaron Rodgers ($7,000), Ben Roethlisberger ($6,700), Deshaun Watson ($6,500), Matt Ryan ($6,300), Philip Rivers ($5,600), Joe Burrow ($5,500), Derek Carr ($5,300), Andy Dalton ($5,300), Taysom Hill ($4,800)

Players I’m Selling

carolina panthersTeddy Bridgewater ($6,400): After a week of limited practices, it sounds like Teddy Bridgewater won’t be able to take the field this week. Even if he is able to take the field, he likely won’t be at full capability. A matchup against the Lions who allow the 13th-most fantasy points per game to QBs normally wouldn’t be enough to scare me off, but Bridgewater’s injury definitely does the trick. We’ve seen what his downside looks like with three games of 12 or fewer fantasy points this season and I’m nervous about that type of an outcome for him again. Keep an eye on practice reports to see about Bridgewater’s health, but either way, the downside is too great to invest at this price.

tennessee titansRyan Tannehill ($6,100): For all the talk of Ryan Tannehill’s expected regression this season, he’s been pretty strong with 20 passing touchdowns to 3 interceptions through 9 games. However, he has scored just 12.7 fantasy points per game over the past two weeks as he’s faced two brutal matchups against the Bears and Colts, two of the best passing defenses in the NFL. Things don’t get any easier for Tannehill this week as the Ravens are on tap who are allowing the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Baltimore also ranks as a top-7 defense in both passing yards and passing touchdowns allowed. Given Tannehill’s price and the tough matchup, he’s a clear stay-away this week.

new orleans saintsJameis Winston ($5,900): I think there’s going to be a ton of love for Jameis Winston in the fantasy world this week as he gets his first career start for the Saints in place of Drew Brees. However, he struggled in relief for the injured starter last week as he completed just 6 of 10 passes for 63 yards and 0 touchdowns. In a full half of play, he finished with just 2.3 fantasy points. He set the world ablaze with his 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions last year, but the Saints won’t ask him to throw downfield nearly as often. The Falcons present a strong matchup, but I expect Sean Payton to limit the offense’s dependence on Winston and I just don’t see him as having a huge upside this week.

denver broncosDrew Lock ($5,400): I felt the need to take this opportunity to rescind my claim that Drew Lock is the future starting quarterback for the Broncos. Something is absolutely broken, and it isn’t his ribs as he apparently only suffered a rib strain with no broken bones. Still, he threw four interceptions last week against a Raiders’ defense that had been generous to opposing quarterbacks all year long. This week, he faces the Dolphins who just held Justin Herbert to the worst game of his impressive rookie season. Lock has 10 interceptions to just 7 touchdowns this year and has completed just 55% of his passes. He can’t be trusted in most games right now and he definitely can’t be trusted against the Dolphins who have been rounding into form defensively as of late.

Other quarterbacks I’m selling: Kirk Cousins ($6,200), Tua Tagovailoa ($5,800), Drew Lock ($5,400), Baker Mayfield ($5,400), Alex Smith ($5,300), Sam Darnold ($5,100), Jake Luton ($5,000)

Running Backs

Players I’m Buying

minnesota vikingsDalvin Cook ($9,000): The combination of a massive $9,000 price tag and an underwhelming game with 15.2 PPR points against the Bears last week might have some fading the Vikings’ running back this week. That would be a mistake. Cook has been the best running back in fantasy this season and will be looking to add another multi-touchdown game to his tally with four such games this season. He’s on a 16-game pace of 1,908 rushing yards and 24 rushing touchdowns and should be able to get right back on track this week against the Cowboys who allow the 10th-most fantasy points per game to RBs and have allowed 18+ fantasy points to four different running backs this season. There are plenty of cheaper options later to make it well worth it to build a couple of lineups with Cook as the centerpiece this week.

carolina panthersMike Davis ($6,800): It sounds like the Panthers will be without both Christian McCaffrey and Teddy Bridgewater this week, so I’m expecting them to rely heavily on Davis to get the offense moving. He’s scored between 8 and 9 PPR points in each of the past four games, but a partial game with CMC and a couple of bad matchups limited his upside. He had a stretch earlier in the year of 3 games with 22+ PPR points and I’m expecting him to get back to that range this week. He faces the Lions this week who have allowed the most rushing touchdowns per game, the third-most rushing yards per game, and the most fantasy points per game to RBs. Davis’s ownership could take a hit with his underwhelming performances as of late, but I’m expecting a strong performance given the matchup and expected workload.

losangeleschargersnew100X100Kalen Ballage ($5,600): With the continued absence of Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson for Los Angeles, Kalen Ballage has taken over the backfield with an average of 20 touches. Last week, he got much more involved in the passing game as he came down with 5 catches for 34 yards and added another 18 carries for 68 yards on the ground. The workload is very encouraging for him moving into this week, as is the matchup against a Jets defense that has allowed the 8th-most fantasy points to running backs this season. Rookie Joshua Kelley has been phased out of the offense as he’s been pretty inefficient, so I expect Ballage to see another strong workload in an incredibly favorable matchup.

indianpolis coltsNyheim Hines ($5,200): With rookie Jonathan Taylor and veteran Jordan Wilkins proving largely ineffective lately, Nyheim Hines has taken on a larger workload in this offense. Last week, he finished with 28.5 PPR points against the Titans as he had 17 touches for 115 yards from scrimmage and 2 touchdowns (1 rushing, 1 receiving). He played 56% of the team’s snaps, his highest mark of the season, and he helped the Colts produce 34 points in the game. This week, Hines faces the Packers who have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to RBs. With the workload I’m expecting for him, he’s an absolute steal at this price.

 

washington football teamJ.D. McKissic ($5,200): With 29 targets over the past two weeks, J.D. McKissic has been more of a wide receiver than running back this season, although he did rush for a touchdown last week. The Bengals have been surprisingly decent on the ground defensively, but they’ve allowed the seventh-most passing yards per game which lends itself to success for McKissic. The Bengals are allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to running backs and the seventh-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers, so whichever role McKissic fills this week, he should have some strong fantasy success.

Other running backs I’m buying: Aaron Jones ($7,200), Nick Chubb ($7,000), Miles Sanders ($6,900), Ezekiel Elliott ($6,500), Antonio Gibson ($5,800), Damien Harris ($5,700), Giovani Bernard ($5,500), J.D. McKissic ($5,200), Melvin Gordon ($5,100), Salvon Ahmed ($4,800), Adrian Peterson ($4,000)

Players I’m Selling

cleveland brownsKareem Hunt ($6,700): After seeing 19 carries and 3 catches against the Texans last week, fantasy players will be looking at Hunt as still a top-15 option, but I’m less bullish against an Eagles’ team that’s biggest strength is its defensive line. Philly allows the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to RBs and I just don’t see enough backfield production to make Chubb and Hunt both top-10 guys this week. Hunt’s efficiency has been awesome this season, but at this price you’re forgoing more reliable, consistent RB1 options. With a tougher matchup and projected reduced workload, I’m avoiding Hunt at this price tag.

jacksonville jaguarsJames Robinson ($6,400): Part of what made James Robinson a phenomenal fantasy option early in the year was his incredible target share, but that has dissipated in recent weeks with rookie Jake Luton under center. Robinson has just two catches in the past two games with Luton. He does have 22+ carries in each of his past three games, to be fair, but he faces the Steelers this week who allow the fewest rushing touchdowns per game and the ninth-fewest rushing yards per game, as well as the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position. While his workload gives him a decent baseline, I don’t see the upside here.

atlanta falconsTodd Gurley ($5,900): I’ve been waiting for the other shoe to drop for Todd Gurley all season as he’s maintained solid fantasy production despite being wildly inefficient on the field. Regression may be coming for him this week as he faces the Saints who allow the 2nd-fewest rushing yards per game and have allowed just 3 rushing touchdowns this season, tied for the fewest in the NFL. Gurley comes into this game off a bye week, which should help some, but the Saints allow the fewest fantasy points per game to RBs and I’m not confident in Gurley’s ability to overcome that difficult matchup with how poor he’s been on the ground this year.

indianpolis coltsJonathan Taylor ($5,800): This certainly isn’t what fantasy players who drafted Jonathan Taylor were expecting after Marlon Mack went down in Week 1 as Taylor has just a combined 24 carries for 61 yards and just one catch over the past three weeks. It hasn’t even necessarily been a matchup problem for him, as he faced the Lions and Titans over that span who he should have had the ability to succeed against. This week, he takes on the Packers who allow the third-most fantasy points per game to RBs. However, it’s very difficult to trust him right now with his ineffectiveness and the continued involvement of Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.

new york jetsLa’Mical Perine ($4,400): There might be some who are excited about Perine’s upside moving forward after he was named the starting running back for the Jets. However, he’s rushed for just 3.6 YPC and has surpassed 6 PPR points just once all season. The rookie rusher has shown flashes of decent ability, but it’s hard to trust anyone in this atrocious offense and I’m not ready to trust Perine as a lower-cost option. We have to wait and see if the starting title leads to an actual strong workload, and even if it does, Frank Gore has done nothing all year with the same opportunity.

Alexander Mattison ($6,200), Latavius Murray ($5,900), Jamaal Williams ($5,700), Tony Pollard ($5,600), Boston Scott ($5,600), Mark Ingram ($5,000), La’Mical Perine ($4,400), Frank Gore ($4,100), Gus Edwards ($4,000), Kerryon Johnson ($4,000)

Wide Receivers

Players I’m Buying

losangeleschargersnew100X100Keenan Allen ($7,400): The revelation of rookie quarterback Justin Herbert has led to incredible success for Keenan Allen as he ranks as the WR7 in fantasy so far. Allen has double-digit targets in three of his last four games and has scored a touchdown in four of his past five games. This week, he faces the Jets who allow the fourth-most passing yards per game. Allen is a PPR machine and should get back to the 20+ PPR point range here he was for the three weeks prior to a bit of a down game against the Dolphins. I’m starting Allen with confidence and the Herbert-Allen stack will be one of my favorites this week.

washington football teamTerry McLaurin ($6,900): One of my favorite receivers in the NFL over the past two years has been Terry McLaurin and he’s developing the consistent production to match his clearly elite talent. He has exactly 7 catches in each of the past four games and has been an elite fantasy option regardless of whether its been Alex Smith, Kyle Allen, or Dwayne Haskins under center. This week, McLaurin faces a Bengals team allowing the 7th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers and Cincinatti’s secondary is missing a few key players due to injury. McLaurin has top-5 upside this week.

minnesota vikingsJustin Jefferson ($6,000): Jefferson has been such a fun player in his rookie season. His 18.1 yards per reception paces all wide receivers with 40+ catches and he was excellent last week with 8 catches for 135 yards against a tough Bears secondary. Consistency hasn’t reigned supreme for Jefferson as he had averaged just 7.5 PPR points over his two games prior to his 21.5-point outburst last week. However, he’s a rookie wideout who’s continuing to find himself in the NFL and has a ton of weekly upside. This week, he faces a Dallas secondary that has allowed the 2nd-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers, so I’m expecting another strong game.

dallas cowboysAmari Cooper ($5,400): The injury to Dak Prescott has submarined Amari Cooper’s fantasy value, but he’s not been as bad as you might think. Outside of a quiet 1-5 game against the Eagles with Ben DiNucci under center, Cooper has 16.3 PPR points per game over the past month. This week, he gets Andy Dalton back in the offense, and I do expect this offense to start to put together some more consistency. The Vikings’ secondary has been torched this season as they’re allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to WRs and are missing a handful of guys as well. Cooper has top-ten upside in this matchup, so he’s a steal at this price.

new york jetsDenzel Mims ($3,300): This is an absolute flier and I’m not calling on Mims to finish as a top-15 guy by any means. However, he has 7+ targets in two of his last three games and the Jets could be without Breshad Perriman this week, which would leave the rookie Mims as the top option on the outside. The Chargers’ secondary has been burned all year as they’ve dealt with a bunch of injuries and they are one of ten teams to allow 2+ touchdown passes per game. Mims is a real talent and we often see rookie receivers break out down the stretch of the season. He’s a strong flier this week.

Michael Thomas ($7,300), Chase Claypool ($6,100), Robby Anderson ($6,000), Diontae Johnson ($5,900), Tee Higgins ($5,900), D.J. Moore ($5,600), Amari Cooper ($5,400), Brandin Cooks ($5,200), Mike Williams ($5,100), CeeDee Lamb ($5,000), Jakobi Meyers ($4,900), Curtis Samuel ($4,700), Michael Pittman Jr. ($4,500), Jalen Reagor ($4,300), Keelan Cole ($3,800), Michael Gallup ($3,700), Jakeem Grant ($3,500)

Players I’m Selling

tennessee titansA.J. Brown ($7,200): If you have A.J. Brown in season-long leagues, there isn’t a doubt in my mind that you’re starting him. However, there are a confluence of factors that have me fading him hard in DraftKings this week. First, a matchup against the Ravens who boast one of the best secondaries in the NFL and allow the third-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers is concerning. Second, Brown is dealing with a knee injury that he’s expected to play through but could still hamper him. Third, he only had 1 catch last week, underscoring the fact that the Titans have plenty of other options in the passing game. Fourth, at this price tag, you’re banking on top-five upside that isn’t there for Brown. For those reasons, I’m out.

atlanta falconsCalvin Ridley ($7,000): It was pretty much the consensus expectation that Calvin Ridley would be fully healthy following this team’s bye week, but his foot sprain is still an issue that is keeping him limited in practice this week. I do expect him to play, but the injury introduces a downside that is scary at this price. I also don’t expect this game to be quite as high-scoring as Vegas does with the Saints’ offense limited without Drew Brees and potentially without Alvin Kamara. Julio Jones is often the first, second, and third read for Matt Ryan and Ridley has too much downside for me this week.

baltimore ravensMarquise Brown ($5,800): I’d love to suggest Marquise Brown as a play with his clear talent, but I just don’t know how you can be confident in him with his recent production. He has just 6 combined catches over the past three weeks and has scored just two touchdowns all year. With the passing volume severely limited in Baltimore – they have the second-fewest passing yards per game – it’s hard to trust Brown right now, even against a Titans defense that has allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season. The upside is always there for Brown, but it’s hard to bank on his production with the lack of volume in this offense.

jacksonville jaguarsD.J. Chark ($5,700): In Jake Luton’s first career start, D.J. Chark was excellent with his best game of the season as he finished with a 7-146-1 line and 27.6 PPR points. However, he fell back down to earth last week with just 4 catches for 56 yards. The Jaguars have to face the Steelers this week who’s front seven is generating the most sacks per game and Luton might want to bring a human hamster ball this week as he’s going to be hitting the turf frequently. The Steelers have been susceptible to some big plays on the back end this year, but I just don’t see Luton having enough time in the pocket to get the ball to Chark downfield.

Jamison Crowder ($6,100), D.J. Chark ($5,700), Travis Fulgham ($5,600), Emmanuel Sanders ($4,900), Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($4,800), Corey Davis ($4,800), Allen Lazard ($4,600), Rashad Higgins ($4,500), Willie Snead IV ($4,500), Zach Pascal ($4,400), Marvin Hall ($3,800), Alshon Jeffery ($3,700), Tre’Quan Smith ($3,500), Jalen Guyton ($3,500)

Tight Ends

Players I’m Buying

baltimore ravensMark Andrews ($4,900): The Ravens’ tight end has been hit-or-miss this season with four games of 13+ PPR points and four games of 6 or fewer PPR points. However, I’m bullish on the Baltimore passing offense with the Titans allowing the fifth-most passing yards per game and Andrews is Lamar Jackson’s favorite target. Andrews has 5 receiving touchdowns this season and has a higher chance to score a touchdown than just about any tight end on the main slate. The Titans have been a middle-of-the-pack defense against tight ends this season and I see Andrews as being worth spending up for this week.

pittsburgh steelersEric Ebron ($4,000): In the gross, disgusting world of tight ends in fantasy football, it’s hard to ask for much more than a consistent target share. That’s exactly what Eric Ebron is getting as he’s seen 5+ targets in each of his past four games. That’s translated to double-digit PPR points in three of his past four games with two touchdowns over that span. This week, the Steelers face the Jaguars who allow the third-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. With the guaranteed target share and plus matchup, I’m expecting Ebron to take advantage with a strong game.

 

washington football teamLogan Thomas ($3,300): With 4+ targets in every game this season, Logan Thomas’s involvement in the offense has led to some decent fantasy production. Last week, he benefitted from Alex Smith’s first start of the season for Washington as he finished with 4 catches for 66 yards. This week, he faces the Bengals who have allowed the seventh-most passing yards per game and the second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. Thomas hasn’t been a sexy fantasy player with some underwhelming games along the way, but he is a strong option given his price tag and the plus matchup this week.

Noah Fant ($4,500), Hayden Hurst ($4,400), T.J. Hockenson ($4,200), Jared Cook ($4,100), Austin Hooper ($3,900), Dallas Goedert ($3,800), Logan Thomas ($3,300), Trey Burton ($3,100), Tyler Eifert ($2,700)

Players I’m Selling

tennessee titansJonnu Smith ($4,700): With A.J. Brown and Corey Davis finding success on the perimeter and Anthony Firkser siphoning some targets away at tight end, Jonnu Smith has seen just two targets in three of his last five games. He’s the type of player who can do more with less given his red-zone ability and yards-after-catch explosiveness. However, a matchup against the Ravens who allow the seventh-fewest passing yards per game has me fading the entire Titans offense. The Ravens allow the 13th-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends, so I’m out on Smith.

 

philadelphia eaglesZach Ertz ($3,700): You might be tempted to roll out Ertz in his return to the lineup for Philadelphia, but we have to remember that he was wildly unproductive earlier in the year as he’s caught just 53.3% of his targets and has scored just one touchdown in six games. With Dallas Goedert emerging as a consistent pass-catcher in this offense and Travis Fulgham, Alshon Jeffery, and Jalen Reagor all involved, I don’t see there being a big enough target share for Ertz this week to make him worth rolling with. He faces the Browns who rank middle-of-the-pack in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.

green bay packersRobert Tonyan ($3,200): It feels like ages ago that Tonyan was scoring three touchdowns in a game and becoming a strong fantasy option as he has surpassed 7 PPR points just once since that three-touchdown effort in Week 4. This week, the Packers face the Colts who allow the fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends. With Davante Adams and Allen Lazard now healthy, the target share isn’t there for Tonyan and the matchup is brutal as well. I don’t expect this to be a terribly high-scoring game for Green Bay and with plenty of other, more involved options available, Tonyan isn’t someone I’m looking to play this week.

Mike Gesicki ($4,300), Irv Smith Jr. ($3,400), Robert Tonyan ($3,200), Kyle Rudolph ($3,200), David Njoku ($3,000), Chris Herndon ($2,700), Drew Sample ($2,700), Ian Thomas ($2,500)

Top Defense/Special Teams Plays

losangeleschargersnew100X100Los Angeles Chargers ($4,000): The Jets have made things easy on us this season as we know we can pretty reliably play every DST against them. The Jets have scored the fewest points per game in the NFL this season and have allowed their quarterbacks to be sacked 2.9 times per game, the seventh-most in the NFL. The Chargers’ defense isn’t healthy, but they are going to dominate against a Joe Flacco-led Jets offense. The Chargers DST is worth spending up for given the incredibly strong matchup as the Jets allow the third-most fantasy points to DSTs this season.

 

miamidolphins100X100Miami Dolphins ($3,400): The Dolphins’ defense was already going to be one of my top picks this week with how dominant they’ve been recently as they’ve allowed their opponents to score just 20.2 points per game, the fifth-fewest in the NFL. This week, Miami plays Denver who has turned the ball over 21 times, more than any other team in football. Drew Lock is either going to be very limited with his sprained ribs or out this week, which would lead to Brett Rypien getting the start. Regardless, a couple of turnovers and big-time defensive plays are going to make Miami one of the top DSTs on the week in this matchup.

washington football teamWashington Football Team ($2,900): One of the best ways to find fantasy goodness for DSTs is to focus on the battle in the trenches. With rookie Chase Young leading a group of talented, young pass-rushers in the front seven, Washington has 3.1 sacks per game, the fifth-most in the NFL. Meanwhile, the Bengals have surrendered 3.6 sacks per game, the second-most in the NFL. Washington is going to introduce Joe Burrow to the turf several times in this one and that will likely lead to a couple of turnovers. I love Washington at this price tag.

Other DSTs I’m buying: Pittsburgh Steelers ($4,600), Cleveland Browns ($3,000), Atlanta Falcons ($2,300)

For as long as I've been watching sports, I've been gambling on them too. I used to place $1 bets on several NBA games throughout the week with a buddy in high school with the winner rarely getting more than a few dollars for their trouble. It didn't matter - the rush of landing a winning bet and the ensuing bragging rights were enough. Now I've graduated to full-blown degenerate status, placing copious futures bets for every sport and designing elaborate parlays for maximum payoff. I've experienced my fair share of blown chances but there's no better feeling than using my sports research and knowledge to pull off a win.
