Week 11 Running Back Sleepers and Streamers

You’ve got to make sure you tap in with us every week! We’ve been running hot lately! From Keaton Mitchell a few weeks ago, to Ty Chandler and Rico Dowdle from our Week 10 article. As we near the end of the fantasy season, these last few weeks are your last chance for depth before the playoffs. Let’s get into our Week 11 running back sleepers and streamers!

Week 11 Running Back Sleepers and Streamers

Running Back Sleepers

Royce Freeman, LA Rams, ~14% owned

The story of fantasy football: Next man up. Ronnie Rivers, Cam Akers, and Kyren Williams will be out for the next few weeks, which means Freeman and Henderson are the Rams’ top string running backs at the moment. The Rams will be facing a Seattle defense that just let Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson torch them through the air for 2 TDs and over 100 yards receiving. While that makes Henderson the preferred RB to own of the two, he’s currently 54% rostered, and to be honest, I would’ve said the same about Robinson over Gibson (and Gibson scored a TD through the air). You’ll want to have a piece of Freeman this week.

2023 Week 11 RB Streamers

Jerick McKinnon, Kansas City Chiefs, ~31% owned

McKinnon has been abysmal this year. At least from a fantasy standpoint. He was someone I targeted late in the draft, because he was such a terrific weapon last year through the air (in the red zone). This year, he’s got 3 TDs total, all receiving, but no games with over 3 receptions. This week he’s facing the Eagles and their stout run defense. If the Eagles have an achilles heal, it’s their pass defense over the last few weeks. With Pacheco likely to be the next RB to underperform against Philly, that should mean more passing down situations. More passing down situations means snaps for McKinnon. More snaps likely means more targets and more points. Easy enough, right? I’d take the over on McKinnon’s catches and receiving yards this week, so it’s fair to use him this week as a streamer if you’re in a bind. 

Joshua Kelley, LA Chargers, ~13% owned

With Austin Ekeler back from his injury, Kelley’s carries have gone from 16,13,11, and 17 in Weeks 1-4, to 6,3, and 5 in the last three weeks. The reason I find him viable this week, however, is because they face a Green Bay defense that is 26th vs. opposing running backs. Despite taking the backseat role to Ekeler (as he should, obviously), Kansas City allowed Kelley to run for 75 yards and 1 TD, so it’s possible for Kelley to put up starting RB numbers, despite his backup role.
