Week 11 Fantasy Football Start ‘Em and Sit “Em: The King’s Guide to Tough Lineup Calls

No one will be able to start Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Davante Adams, Tyler Lockett or Golden Tate. It will be very important to reach into your reserves or immediately lean on recent waiver wire adds in Fantasy Football Week 11. We help you make it through yet another important and challenging matchup with some key streamers to utilize.

For help getting ready for NFL Week 11, check out our Waiver Wire Recommendations and  FAAB Guide.

Fantasy Football Week 11 – Start ‘Em

Running Backs

Brian Hill vs. CAR: If you picked him up this week, Hill should get into your lineup immediately. He runs with power, catches passes and can finish off scoring drives from short range. The Panthers allow the second-most Fantasy Points Per Game in the NFC to RBs. They have allowed the most FFPG to RBs over the past four weeks. Hill will slide in nicely as an RB2 or flex this week, depending on what your needs are.

Devin Singletary vs. MIA: This will be a homecoming for Singletary this week in South Florida and he does not want to disappoint his backers. The former FAU star will be making his first appearance as a pro in Miami in Fantasy Football Week 11. The vibes will be good and so will the matchup, as the Dolphins allow the second-most FFPG to RBs among AFC teams.

Damien Williams vs. LAC: He has regained the lead RB role in Kansas City, and while it is hard to trust Williams, you have to utilize him if you need a plugger at RB2 or a viable flex option. The Chargers have allowed the fourth-most FFPG to RBs over the past four weeks.


Wide Receivers

Jamison Crowder vs. NYJ: Some of you will scoff at the Revenge Game theory, but former players have told me it definitely is an extra motivator. Even if you discount that factor, Crowder has 13 catches for 164 yards and two TDs in his past two games. Crowder is simply playing very well and should be locked in as your WR3 in Fantasy Football Week 11.

Calvin Ridley vs. CAR: He has been unreliable this season, but with Austin Hooper out and Mohamed Sanu recently being traded, Ridley is in line for more opportunities in a busy passing game. Julio Jones will obviously draw a lot of attention and Carolina has allowed the second-most receptions to WRs in 2019.

Deebo Samuel vs. ARI: Injuries forced the rookie to step forward last week and Samuel came through with eight catches for 112 yards against Seattle. Samuel may be forced to play a significant role again in Fantasy Football Week 11 and he has very good after-the -catch skills to turn his receptions into bigger gainers. Arizona has allowed the third-most FFPG in the NFC to WRs over the past month.


Tight Ends

Jared Cook vs, TB: He has been mostly disappointing this season, but Cook displayed his better form last week, catching six passes for 74 yards against Atlanta. He gets another prime matchup this week, as the Buccaneers have allowed the second-most FFPG to TEs.

Noah Fant vs. MIN: Do not hesitate to use him in Fantasy Football Week 11 if you are scrambling for TE help. Fant had a 75-yard catch-and-run TD before Denver’s bye and appears to be set to become the second most targeted pass-catcher for the Broncos.



Kyle Allen vs. ATL: Last week, he threw for over 300 yards at Green Bay in very challenging conditions. Now he gets to face the Falcons’ 25th-ranked pass defense. Allen has two good WRs, a veteran TE, and a top receiving RB to help him exploit the matchup.

Derek Carr vs. CIN: The Bengals are an obviously easy matchup for any opponent right now, and have allowed the third-most FFPG to QBs this season. The Raiders may rely on the run first, but Carr should at least provide respectable Fantasy totals to help drive up the score for Oakland in Fantasy Football Week 11.


Fantasy Football Week 11 Sit ‘Em

Running Backs

Kenyan Drake vs. SF: In his first game with the Cardinals two weeks ago, Drake splashed onto the Arizona scene with 162 yards from scrimmage and a rushing score. The Niners will be ready for Drake in Fantasy Football Week 11 as they bounce back from their first defeat on Monday.

Ronald Jones vs. NO: The second-year man has been progressing nicely, but the Saints have been the fourth-best team in allowing FFPG to RBs this year. They won’t let Jones see too much running room in Fantasy Football Week 11. New Orleans has allowed the least rushing yards to RBs over the past month.

Phillip Lindsay vs. MIN: He is quite TD dependent, and the Vikings have allowed two rushing scores this season. Possible volume is the only real reason to consider him in Fantasy Football Week 11.


Wide Receivers

Christian Kirk vs. SF: He had the big breakthrough game everyone was looking for in Week 10. Now you have to bench him in his next game, because the Niners will be focused on containing him in this game after watching film of that performance.

Marvin Jones vs. DAL: He has always been inconsistent, even when Matthew Stafford has been healthy. Stafford could miss another game in Fantasy Football Week 11 and the Cowboys have been the stingiest team in allowing FFPG to WRs over the past month.

Robert Woods vs. CHI: He has not caught a TD pass yet this season and don’t expect too much from him in what should be a low-scoring game against the Bears.



Nick Foles vs. IND: There are better streamers out there for Fantasy Football Week 11 if you are without Wilson, Rodgers or Stafford. Foles needs to get back into a good rhythm and he has never been much of a Fantasy QB. Some have actually asked me about him as a plugger for this week, go with Kyle Allen instead if you can.

Kirk Cousins vs. MIN: He is capable of a big game at any time, but don’t expect it against the Denver defense in Fantasy Football Week 11. Yes, I would use Allen or Carr over Cousins.

NOTE: As we have indicated previously, there are no outright benching recommendations at TE in Fantasy Football Week 11. If you have a top or respectable player at the position, even a Darren Fells, you start him regardless of matchup. If you have two standout TEs, you can flex one in a week where the second tight end might be your best option at that spot.
