Fantasy Football: Start/Sit: Week 11

Hi, it’s Aaron Truesdale and I’m back and ready to give you the fantasy advice you need for the upcoming NFL season. I’m so sorry but unfortunately, due to health issues, I have decided to shorten my start/sit column for at least the rest of this season. Thank you all for understanding and I hope you all still enjoy all the content that I am still able to give you. Be sure to follow me on Twitter.

Now, let me tell you a little bit about my start/sit column. Each week I will be giving my top 3 starts & my top 3 sits at each position. There will be a start & sit of the week at each position with projections. My column will not include the automatic starters. Automatic starters are guys you don’t bench unless they’re injured or on a bye week. I am going to give 2 examples of automatic starters at each position. QB: Josh Allen & Patrick Mahomes, RB: Christian McCaffery & Dalvin Cook, WR: Tyreke Hill & Stefon Diggs, TE: Travis Kelce & George Kittle, K: Justin Tucker & Harrison Butker. For defenses, Pittsburgh Steelers & Los Angeles Rams. Now, I’ve added a twist to my article that will mention a sleeper of the week at each position who did not make my top 3 starters list. Also, a player that is most likely on the waiver wire that you can stream if you’re in a jam at a position. Let’s get it going with Week 11!

START

Ryan Tannehill vs HOU

Tennessee Titans: Ryan Tannehill will deliver a 5-star performance Week 1

Projection: 33/40| 358 YDS| 3 TDS

Tannehill has looked decent without Henry so far and that will continue this week against a horrible Texans defense. So as long as Tannehill continues to use the play-action pass to spread the ball around you can count on him as a QB1.

Mac Jones vs ATL

Tua Tagovailoa vs NYJ

SIT

Russell Wilson vs ARI

Projection: 25/48|223 YDS|1 TD|3 INTS

Wilson looked rusty his first game back. He will continue to struggle as he tries to knock the rust off against a solid Arizona defense.

Justin Herbert vs PIT

Carson Wentz vs BUF

SLEEPER

Justin Fields vs BAL

The Ravens defense has struggled to find their identity this season. It will be Field’s turn to slash that Ravens defense. Fields will have a breakout game this week against the Ravens. So if you need a fill-in this week then I would pick up and start Justin Fields.

START

AJ Dillon vs MIN

Yahoo Fantasy Football: Sunday recap for NFL Week 10

Projection: 26 CAR|150 YDS|1 TD|6 REC|50 YDS|1 TD

Dillon is out to prove he is good enough to be a starting running back in the NFL and with the small sample size we have seen that should be easy to prove. He could even threaten Aaron Jones for the starting gig in Green Bay. Dillon is hungry and he has all the motivation to have a breakout and career game which I believe he will do. If he is on the waiver wire grab him and start him.

James Connor vs SEA

Myles Gaskins vs NYJ

SIT

Saquon Barkley vs TB

Projection: 11 CAR|35 YDS|4 REC|14 YDS

It is great news that Barkley is going to be back in the field this week but the bad news is he is facing the Buccaneer’s top-notch run defense and because of that it is best to leave Barkley on your bench for one more week.

Antonio Gibson vs CAR

Josh Jacobs vs CIN

SLEEPER

Rhamondre Stevenson vs ATL

Stevenson has played well enough to be the Patriots starter at running back moving forward or at least an equally shared backfield with Harris for the rest of the season. So if you need a running back this week I suggest picking up and starting Stevenson.

START

Ja’Marr Chase vs LV

LSU star Ja'Marr Chase, the nation's top WR, opts out of season and  declares for 2021 NFL Draft - CBSSports.com

Projection: 8 REC|138 YDS|2 TDS

The Bengals have struggled the last few games but they are coming out of their bye week. So I believe they will have fixed their problems during their bye week and the Bengals will come out this week with something to prove and will make a huge statement against the Raiders and Ja’Marr Chase will be a big part of that statement game. Start Chase with confidence against a deteriorating Raiders football team.

Allen Robinson vs BAL

DJ Moore vs WAS

SIT

Brandin Cooks vs TEN

Projection: 6 REC|42 YDS

That Titans defense has been lighting it up lately and that dominance will continue against a terrible Texans team. Cooks will be shut down by that dominating Titans secondary. Cooks is on a bad team and it saddens me that he wasn’t traded because he is a great talent and that talent is being wasted on the Texans. So unless it’s a can’t miss matchup just leave Cooks on your bench.

Devonta Smith vs NO

Diontae Johnson vs LAC

SLEEPER

Bryan Edwards vs CIN

If you need a sneaky sleeper this week then I would go with Edwards because Desean Jackson is a distraction on the field while he is still learning the playbook and due to that it will open things up for Edwards in the passing game. So pick up and start Edwards if you need a fill-in receiver.

Hunter Henry vs ATL

Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry fantasy football start/sit advice: What to do  with Patriots TEs in Week 7 - DraftKings Nation

Projection: 5 REC|55 YDS|2 TDS

Henry has been Mac Jones’s main target in the red zone and that’s not going to change anytime soon. Henry’s touchdown upside plus his matchup against a horrid Falcons defense are reasons enough to start a Hunter Henry.

Mike Gesicki vs NYJ

TJ Hockenson vs CLE

SIT

Kyle Pitts vs NE

Projection: 4 REC|47 YDS

No Ridley, likely no Patterson this week, and with those two out Pitts is the only true weapon Ryan has left and that is why the Patriots defense will focus on shutting down Pitts. Which spells bad news for Pitts this week in fantasy football.

Dallas Goedert vs NO

Tyler Conklin vs GB

SLEEPER

Evan Engram vs TB

The last couple of weeks before the bye Engram was building great chemistry with Jones and look for that to continue moving forward. Also that Tampa pass defense has been dreadful this season. So if you play matchups or need a spot start then pick up and start Engram and you won’t be disappointed.

START

Matt Prater vs SEA

Detroit Lions: Top 5 Matt Prater moments in Motown

Projection: 2 XPS|3 FGS

The Cardinals will score points this week but no matter who their quarterback is their offense will still be a little off which will translate into a few field goal chances that Prater will take advantage of this week. So Prater is the kicker you want this week.

Chris Boswell vs LAC

Evan McPherson vs LV

SIT

Randy Bullock vs HOU

Projection: 3 XPS|1 MXP

Titans will score all touchdowns this week because that Texans defense is so bad. This will lead to nothing but extra point opportunities for Bullock and only extra points leads to low fantasy football points.

Mason Crosby vs MIN

Ryan Succop vs NYG

SLEEPER

Jason Sanders vs NYJ

Miami will put up plenty of points against the Jets and that will lead to many kicking opportunities for Sanders. So if you need a Kicker this week then pick up Jason Sanders.

START

Tennessee vs Houston

Tennessee Titans: Winners and losers from Wild Card win over Patriots -  Page 6

Projection: 0 PTS|241 YDS|5 SKS|2 INTS|1 FF|1 FR|1 TD

The Titan’s defense will dominate the Texan’s offense from the beginning of the game to the end of the game. So this is a no-brainer and as close as it comes to a sure thing. Also, the Titan’s defense has been improving each week and this week is no different. If they’re on your waiver wire pick them up this week and stash them for the rest of the season.

New England vs Atlanta

Miami vs New York Jets

SIT

Indianapolis vs Buffalo

Projection: 34 PTS|504 YDS|4 SKS|1 INT

Buffalo is a dynamic offense and can explode all over any defense and that will happen this week against a solid Colts defense. For that reason alone avoid the Indianapolis Colt’s defense.

Minnesota vs Green Bay

Chicago vs Baltimore

SLEEPER

San Francisco vs Jacksonville

The 49er’s defense is underrated this season and they are good enough to make a scary run shutting down opposing offenses and I believe that run will start this week with a plus matchup against a Jaguars offense still looking for their identity. So if you play matchup at defense in fantasy football as most people do then pick up the 49er’s defense and you may want to hold onto them beyond this week.

I had a lot of fun writing this and I hope all of my week 11 start/sit advice helps everyone. Also if you need more explanation on a player just leave me a comment I will be happy to give you one. I’ll be back next week with more fantasy start/sit advice.
