Fantasy Football, Week 11 – Players to line up and leave on the bench

Like every week, find our advice to field the best possible team in your fantasy leagues.

We remind you that we are not talking about stars, like Patrick Mahomes, Derrick Henry or Davante Adams, who are steadfast in the workforce. The idea is to help you with the choices for more delicate positions like those of WR2-3 or that of FLEX, and during « Bye Weeks ».


The players to line up

Ryan Tannehill (Tennessee Titans)

The Titans’ QB hasn’t been a great fantasy option this season, but it’s been pretty solid for the past month. Facing Houston, a drifting team, he could well explode his counter and sign his best score of the year.

Joe Burrow (Cincinnati Bengals)

His last game, against Cleveland before the « bye week », was very disappointing, but we should not stay on this image. Joe Burrow is expected to bounce back this week against a Las Vegas defense that allocates a lot of points to opposing QBs.

Other QBs that can be lined up: Derek Carr (LV), Tua Tagovailoa (MIA), Mac Jones (NE), Justin Fields (CHI)

Players to keep warm

Carson Wentz (Indianapolis Colts)

Very solid for a month and a half, Carson Wentz was very disappointing against Jacksonville last weekend. And the rebound will wait because it is the Bills who are looming, with one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Matt Ryan (Atlanta Falcons)

He has the talent to surprise us and come out with a good game against any team, but the gaps around him make his games unpredictable. Faced with a defense like New England’s, it is better not to take risks.

Other QBs to leave on the bench: Ben Roethlisberger (PIT), Kirk Cousins ​​(MIN), Baker Mayfield (CLE), Taylor Heinicke (WAS)


The players to line up

Mark Ingram (New Orleans Saints)

His return to New Orleans is going very well, and he takes advantage of the absence of Alvin Kamara to be the number 1 RB. Now historic leader in yards of the franchise, he can continue to make history. Its volume should be interesting against the Eagles.

Myles Gaskin (Miami Dolphins)

I admit, life is complicated with Myles Gaskin in Fantasy. But he’s still the clear number 1 on the Dolphins backfield and he faces a team from the Jets who are very friendly with running backs. The New York franchise has already allocated 20 touchdowns to RBs, between those on the ground and those in the air.

By Onta Foreman (Tennessee Titans)

The Titans continue to split the work between different RBs, but it’s clear that Foreman is the most effective of the bunch. Hopefully he will have more work (and Adrian Peterson less) this weekend against Houston, his former team.

Other RBs that can be lined up: James Conner (ARI), Josh Jacobs & Kenyan Drake (LV), AJ Dillon (GB), David Montgomery (CHI), Michael Carter (NYJ)

Players to keep warm

Boston Scott & Jordan Howard (Philadelphia Eagles)

The Eagles’ ground game is in great shape, but shared work continues to limit the performance of the various RBs. And faced with a formidable defense in this sector (New Orleans), it is difficult to imagine big totals. Plus, Miles Sanders is on the comeback, and that could make the situation even more complex.

Zack Moss & Devin Singletary (Buffalo Bills)

Match between very good defenses on the ground on the program this weekend. If Jonathan Taylor should get away with the Colts, it seems trickier for the RBs of the Bills. Singletary is the fittest, but Moss is the one with the most potential. Too fuzzy to attempt this match.

Other RB to leave on the bench: Alex Collins (SEA), Clyde Edwards-Helaire (KC), Antonio Gibson (WAS)


The players to line up

Brandin Cooks (Houston Texans)

The Titans’ defense is going better but it is still the one that allocates the most Fantasy points to the opposing WRs. Even if Houston is beaten up, Brandin Cooks should be busy and climb his totals late in the game in the famous « garbage time ».

DeVonta Smith (Philadelphia Eagles)

The connection with Jalen Hurts is now working very well and DeVonta Smith is playing as a number 1 WR currently. Faced with the defense of the Saints, much less solid in the air than on the ground, the rookie should continue its momentum.

Jaylen Waddle (Miami Dolphins)

Another rookie is in a good position to shine this weekend, Jaylen Waddle. The WR of the Dolphins is clearly the main target for Tua Tagovailoa due to the absence of Parker and Fuller, and the opponent is favorable (Jets).

Elijah Moore (New York Jets)

One last rookie for the road with Elijah Moore, who is building up. Its versatility is a weapon for limited Jets. And like the Jets, the Fins have a hard time defending in the air.

Other WRs that can be lined up: DJ Moore (CAR), Marquise Brown & Rashod Bateman (BAL), Hunter Renfrow (LV), Tee Higgins (CIN), Darnell Mooney (CHI), Michael Gallup (DAL), Jakobi Meyers (NE)

Players to keep warm

Marvin Jones (Jacksonville Jaguars)

It’s hard to trust the Jacksonville WRs right now. FYI, the most dangerous player in this attack is Jamal Agnew, and you can only line him up if you want to vibrate and like the risk. In short, all the WRs of the Jaguars are to be left on the bench.

Tyler Boyd (Cincinnati Bengals)

With the presence of Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, our friend Tyler Boyd is the third wheel of the scooter. The volume is still not enough to make it a place in your workforce.

Other WRs to leave on the bench: AJ Green (ARI), Terry McLaurin (WAS), Michael Pittman (IND)


The players to line up

Cole Kmet (Chicago Bears)

In the Bears’ last game, the understanding between Justin Fields and Cole Kmet was clear. The QB seems to trust his TE, and that could be confirmed this weekend against Baltimore, a team which allocates a lot of Fantasy points to this position.

Hunter Henry (New England Patriots)

Very favorable poster for the TE des Pats, which continues to perform well. He has now scored in 6 of the last 7 games, with 7 total touchdowns. He will have opportunities to find his way to the end again this week.

Other TEs that can be aligned: Dalton Schultz (DAL), Dawson Knox (BUF), CJ Uzomah (CIN), Pat Freiermuth (PIT)

The player to keep warm

Jared Cook (Los Angeles Chargers)

The Steelers are still defending well, and they just contained TJ Hockenson who didn’t catch a single ball last Sunday. It promises to be complicated for Jared Cook.

Evan Engram (New York Giants)

The G-Men’s TE has scored in the last two games, but the number of yards remains very limited. It’s a problem against the Bucs who have conceded only one tight-end touchdown in the last 5 games.

Other TEs to leave on the bench: Gerald Everett (SEA), Jack Doyle (IND), Zach Ertz (ARI), Kyle Pitts (ATL)


Defenses to align

Tennessee Titans

The Titans are hot, the defense has been playing much better for 2 weeks. The Texans are on the streets, their attack gives many points to the opposing defenses. It’s a perfect match.

Miami Dolphins

Miami’s defense made a much better impression against Baltimore last Thursday. The opportunity to confirm the improvement is good against the Jets coming out of a game with 5 interceptions.

Other interesting defenses: Browns, 49ers, Chargers

The tusks to keep warm

New Orleans Saints

I’m not sure what to make of the Saints-Eagles game this weekend, but I see both teams playing pretty clean football. Like last week against Tennessee, the NOLA defense could show a meager record.

Dallas cowboys

If Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ attack are back at their best, it’s difficult to line up a defense in front. Likewise, the Kansas City defense is not recommended in the face of the Cowboys’ powerful offense.

Other defenses to leave on the bench: Colts
