20 Fantasy Football Players: Play Or Pass For Week 11

By: Fan Sports Lists Team

Week 11 brings just 4 teams on bye but some quality WR options who will be out. We have some great options below that you can plug into your lineup for success on Sunday!

Byes: Atl, Den, NYJ, SD. Sources for defensive stats: rushing & passing.

7 Players to start this week:

1. Rishard Matthews – WR – Ten @ Ind: Matthews now has 4 TDs in the last 3 games and seems to have a productive and developing relationship with Mariota on the field. That should help him and his production the rest of the way. Matthews will face a Colts pass D that ranks 31st in the NFL. – Kras

2. LeGarrette Blount – RB – NE @ SF: Blount is a good bet to find the end zone again this week. The 49ers have been brutal against the run this season, giving up an astounding 180 yards per game. Dion Lewis could get some light work this week as well but Blount should feast. – Kras

3. Cameron Brate – TE – TB @ KC: Brate has found the end zone 3 times in the last 3 weeks. Brate has only seen 18 targets in those three games but has managed to corral 15 of them. Brate is trending in the right direction and is worth a look if you need a TE. – Kras

4. Golden Tate III – WR – vs. Jac: After a slow start to the season, Tate has been a much bigger part of the offense. He now has double digit targets in 3 of the past 4 games (10, 12, 9, 12). He faces a Jacksonville D that has been solid against the pass this year but, with Tate seeing so many passes at or behind the line of scrimmage, he should still be able to find success this week. – Nate Leer

5. DeAndre Hopkins – WR – Hou @ Oak: Don’t give up on Hopkins just yet! If you got him, plug him in for this juicy matchup. Matter of fact, trade for him if you can get him cheap as there are several good matchups in the future for him. However, if Hop can’t get on the same page as his QB in this game, then it is probably time to panic. – Nate Leer

6. Tyreek Hill – WR – KC vs TB: Hill had 13 targets last week and caught 10 of them. He should get a solid number of targets with Jeremy Maclin out with a groin injury. – JJ Bens

7. Jamison Crowder – WR – Was vs GB: The Packers secondary is a complete mess and everyone is taking advantage of it, so will the Redskins. – JJ Bens

Honorable mention: K Benjamin – WR – Car vs. Saints, Miami D vs. LA, Blake Bortles – QB – Jac @ Det

6 Players to bench or cut now:

1. Jeremy Hill – RB – Cin vs. Buf: Although the Bills are giving up 108 rushing yards per game this season, Hill has been inconsistent at best this year. He is coming off a Monday night game in which he rushed for 46 yards and a TD. Use him if you must, but if you have other options, consider them. – Kras

2. Carson Wentz – QB – Phi @ Sea: Wentz has been good in his rookie year but he will be going into Seattle this week to take on the renewed L.O.B. The Seahawks are giving up just 241 yard per game through the air, while only giving up 17.6 point per game. Try to keep Wentz on the bench this week. – Kras

3. Thomas Rawls – RB – Sea vs. GB: Be patient with Rawls as he is coming off a long layoff and the Pack presents a tough run D. See what role Rawls has and how he looks before plugging him in down the road. – Nate Leer

4. Amari Cooper – WR – Oak vs. Hou: Cooper has been more of a matchup play this year than a consistent fantasy option. The Texans are one of the very best passind Ds so save Cooper for another day if you can. – Nate Leer

5. Peyton Barber – RB – TB @ KC: With Doug Martin back, and possibly Jacqizz Rodgers, as well as the fact the Bucs are playing in Kansas City, it might be time to look elsewhere. – JJ Bens

6. Ty Montgomery – WR/RB – GB @ Was: He only rushed 3 times and caught 2 passes last week. James Starks is back plus Montgomery missed practice Wednesday. – JJ Bens

(Dis)honorable mention: Michael Floyd – WR – Ari @ Min, Terrance West – RB – Bal @ Dal, Derek Carr – QB – Oak vs. Hou

7 Players to plug-in or pick-up if possible:

1. T.J. Yeldon – RB – Jac @ Det: Detroit’s D has improved over the season but they are still susceptible to giving up some big runs. Yeldon is splitting time with Chris Ivory but Yeldon is more of an asset in the passing game which should get him more touches this week. – Kras

2. Cameron Meredith – WR – Chi @ NYG: Although we can never predict which Jay Cutler you will get, Meredith should be one of the better options in the pass game with Alshon Jeffery (suspension) out. Meredith had a lucky 50-yard catch for a TD at the end of the half last week but will need to do more than that to be a legitimate factor. – Kras

3. Eli Rogers – WR – Pit @ Cle: With Marcus Wheaton (shoulder) and Sammie Coates (fingers) both banged up, Rogers could see the field much more often this week against a bad Browns team. Rogers did manage to find the end zone last week against the Cowboys. – Kras

4. Cordarrelle Patterson – WR – Min vs. Ari: Patterson has seen more and more of the field as the season has gone on and that will likely continue as the Vikings need everybody’s help getting this offense going. Patterson has the added benefit of factoring into the kicking game as well. The bulk of Patterson’s touches will be around the line of scrimmage. If you need a flex option, Patterson is an interesting talent to take flyer on. – Kras

5. C.J. Prosise – RB – Sea vs. Phi: Precise Prosise may be the RB to own in Seattle so pick him up if he is available. The Seahawks have moved to much more of a passing offense over the last year or so and Prosise’s skillset fits that style. – Nate Leer

6. Rob Kelly – RB – Was vs. GB: Avoid starting him this week but if he has another solid showing against a good run D, he could lock up this job. Pick him up NOW if he is available in your league. – Nate Leer

7. Robert Woods – WR – Buf @ Cin: He had his first 100 yard receiving game last week. He has a nice schedule coming up so keep an eye on him. – JJ Bens

Honorable mention: Eric Ebron – TE – Det vs. Jax, Dion Lewis – RB – NE @ SF, Michael Thomas – WR – NO @ Car
