Another week, another grind! We’re really getting to the important weeks of the season. We have three more W’s to get to either make the playoffs or get the best seeding we can. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.gif. I know making decisions on who to start and sit isn’t as tough as it usually is this year because of the injury cesspool, but I’m here to help. Let’s get to the players that I really like for week 11.
QB6 this week. Let’s be bold. You know he has a ceiling that reaches to the heavens and a floor that free falls to the depths of Hell. I love the matchup against Atlanta where the defensive line is extremely weak. He is going to be the chalkiest DFS play but only one person can have him in your league and it would be a good idea if it is you. Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, Sean Peyton. There are a lot of weapons at Jameis Winston’s disposal. Also, Jameis can read street signs now after his offseason lasik surgery. Being able to see has to be helpful at QB.
Remember him? I actually forgot and was like oh yeah, he exists. Anyways it sounds like Chris Carson will not be available tonight and Collins ran with a purpose last week so he figures to be involved in the rotation. Collins was on fire in Baltimore when the opportunity presented itself as well. I have no problem playing a seasoned veteran who should get close to if not double digit touches in the flex spot.
Carlos Hyde should receive the most work out of the two. I like both plays because I can see Seattle pumping the brakes on the passing game and going more ground heavy after short rest and a rough couple of weeks for Russell Wilson.
Hines has made a case for this to be his backfield with the way he has played recently. He has done a fantastic job around the goal line and in the passing game. Jonathan Taylor? Not so much! Much to my dismay, Jonathan just hasn’t looked like the savior that was promised. I know that there have been comments about him playing through injury so hopefully that is why he hasn’t been the answer this season. Green Bay has been terrible against running backs so far in 2020 so this is a + matchup on top of the volume that I’m projecting for him.
Christian Kirk is once again relevant in fantast after scoring 5 TDs in the 3 games before Buffalo combined. He was pretty quiet against Buffalo, but I expect that to change pretty quickly against Seattle tonight. Seattle is obviously pretty terrible against the pass and on short rest, it may be a game where Hopkins gets a few less targets and the other pass catchers get a chance to eat. Even if it is a Hopkins night, Kirk has seen 22 targets in the past 3 games. We have a pretty high over/under set at 57.5, so expect these teams to light up the scoreboard.
Despite not finding the end zone yet this year, Jakobi Meyers has been just fine the last 3 weeks with at least 10 PPR points in each of those games. With Cam starting to play a little better the past couple of weeks, I expect more of the same from Meyers. It’s also a plus that New England will be playing in Houston instead of the wicked Bahston November weather.
I’m giving Austin Hooper another chance and hoping for better weather which should lead to some better fortunes. So far, it looks like the weather will be in the low 50’s with a chance of rain. Rain is certainly better than that wind they were playing in on Sunday! The volume should be there against Philadelphia as long as the weather holds up.
If you aren’t benching Justin Herbert for his terrible new haircut, then you should be benching Ryan Tannehill this week against Baltimore. Baltimore isn’t on the same level defensively as they were last season, but they are still pretty stingy. In the last 3 games they have given up just 178.3 yards per game through the air. Tannehill on the other hand, while not turning the ball over, is averaging just over 150 yards per game with just two touchdowns over the last two weeks.
The only way that Todd Gurley likely has a good fantasy day is if he scores a touchdown. New Orleans ranks 2nd in yards given up on the ground per game and we have been seeing quite a bit of Brian Hill in the Atlanta backfield lately. I wouldn’t be surprised if Atlanta falls behind in this one and has to air it out plenty in the last 2 quarters.
Jake Luton against Pittsburgh? No thanks. D.J. Chark saw just 5 targets last week which was 3rd on the team behind Chris Conley Jr. and Keelan Cole Sr. With Keelan Cole being a “senior”, it’s fairly obvious that he has done the sex before so obviously Chark has a lot to compete with.
I am DONE!! Two receptions for 40 yards without Preston Williams in the lineup against the middling Chargers? I can’t do this anymore Michael. Of course, by Sunday I will have talked myself into putting Gesicki in at least one lineup because surely this is the week.
