Below are my Week 11 trade targets; both to trade for and trade away.
Quarterback: Baker Mayfield
Baker is living up to the hype that my Razzball colleague @stiles08 suggested in his Bold Prediction that Mayfield would be a Top 12 QB this season. This week he’s on the road at the 49ers, but we know TB won’t be able to run. SF is the 9th best matchup for WRs. Baker could be sneaky playing from behind. I like 250/2, just hope he isn’t sacked 8 times with 3 INTs. After this week, TB gets IND, CAR, ATL, and GB which are all favorable matchups.
Running Back: James Conner
Conner had been out for four weeks. He returned Sunday right back to 16 carries which is the second-most he’s had this season. With Kyler Murray back, ARI’s offense looked mobile. Conner has seen at least 16 touches in all but one game this year. Up next are HOU, LAR, and PIT before their bye in Week 14. Warning; I don’t love his fantasy playoff schedule – SF, CHI, and PHI.
Wide Receiver: Davante Adams
Adams has been revived since Josh McDaniels got fired in Vegas. He hasn’t blown up yet, but you can feel it coming after his 13 targets. MIA and KC have beatable secondaries and his fantasy playoff schedule is nice too facing MIN, LAC, KC, and IND. LVR do have a bye in Week 13 which I don’t love inheriting, but the upside is worth the dip in cost right now. Adams hasn’t scored since Week 3… he’s due.
Tight End: Tyler Conklin
Conklin has been nice the last two weeks and has upside this week against BUF who has allowed the 10th most points to TE since Week 5. He then gets MIA and ATL who are also a Top 10 matchup for TEs. Conklin has been TE14 and TE5 without scoring. He doesn’t have much upside per say, but if you don’t have a Top 6 TE, you’re streaming anyway. You want floor and opportunity. Conklin has caught all 13 targets over the last two weeks. You can do worse and he’s either cheap or free off waivers.
Quarterback: Geno Smith
Geno is QB19 on the season. He had a season-high 369 passing yards with two touchdowns for a QB5 finish. Most of that production came at the end of the game in garbage time which does count, but isn’t reliable. Up next are LAR, SF twice, DAL, PHI, and PIT. Move off of this massing game immediately.
Running Back: Brian Robinson
This is the definition of sell-high. Robinson is a solid RB, but he exploded last week on basically two plays; receptions no less. He was RB1 overall with 28 PPR points. He only had 38 yards rushing, but 119 receiving on six receptions. Two of those catches were a 51-yard TD and a 48-yard grab. He’s fine as an RB2, but try to upgrade. This week he gets NYG which is a great matchup, but then DAL and MIA. Sell the, “and he plays the Giants this week” to avoid DAL, MIA, and a bye in Week 14.
Wide Receiver: Christian Watson
This has been pitiful. After taking the league by storm in the back half of the season last year with Aaron Rodgers, Watson has been a shell of that production and rarely even worth starting. Unfortunately, most continue starting him. Stop! Since GB’s bye in Week 6, Watson has been WR57, 71, 66 and 64 respectively. He’s scored once on the year and has not surpassed 37 (!!!) yards since the bye. The schedule doesn’t matter here. The Packers are dreadful. Bail if you can before you’re forced to drop him.
Tight End: Evan Engram
Engram is a borderline top TE in fantasy, but the Jags have taken a step back on offense the last couple of weeks and Trevor Lawrence has not looked himself. The 49ers shut down all TEs, but 12 yards on seven targets is rough. Next, he’s got TEN who are the second-toughest matchup for TEs. Then he gets HOU and CIN which are fabulous matchups, but if you’re needing a win this week, Engram may throw another dud.
