start ’em sit ’em for Week 11
Start: Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers has been a reliable fantasy quarterback all season, and this week is no different. Despite facing a tough defense in the Washington Commanders, Rodgers has a 33% target share and leads all wide receivers in red zone targets. While he hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 3, that streak is likely to end soon. The Raiders will be playing catchup, forcing them to pass frequently, which bodes well for Rodgers’ fantasy production.
Sit: Geno Smith
Geno Smith had a decent fantasy game last week, but it was against a weak Washington defense. This week, he faces the Los Angeles Rams, who have a strong defense and are known for their zone coverage. Smith has struggled against zone coverage this season, and his numbers on the road have been underwhelming. It’s best to sit Smith this week and look for other options.
Start: Isaiah Achane
Isaiah Achane is set to return this week after a brief stint on IR. He has been a standout performer this season, averaging the most fantasy points among running backs. While his touchdown rate and yards per carry are unsustainable, he is in a favorable situation. The Miami Dolphins are big home favorites with the highest implied team total this week, and the Raiders have been giving up a lot of fantasy points to running backs. Despite some risk coming off an injury, Achane should be considered a top-10 RB this week.
Sit: All Giants running backs except Saquon Barkley
The New York Giants have a favorable matchup this week, but their offensive line is in shambles. With a low implied team total and a struggling offense, it’s best to avoid starting any Giants running backs other than Saquon Barkley. The Washington Commanders have been tough against the run, and the Giants’ running game is likely to suffer as a result.
Start: Mike Evans
Mike Evans is a must-start in DFS this week. He had a strong performance last week and should continue to be heavily targeted against the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers have given up a lot of fantasy points to wide receivers, and with the Buccaneers expected to be playing from behind, Evans should have plenty of opportunities to rack up points.
Sit: Gabe Davis
Gabe Davis has been inconsistent this season and is facing a tough Jets defense that has been stingy against wide receivers. Davis ranks low in fantasy points per route run against man coverage, which the Jets use frequently. With the Bills likely to rely heavily on their running game this week, Davis is not a recommended start.
Start: DeVonta Smith
DeVonta Smith may have a tough matchup on Monday night, but his situation could lead to more targets than usual. With L’Jarius Snead shadowing A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert out, Smith’s target share has increased significantly. In the past, Smith has been a top-12 fantasy wide receiver when Goedert is off the field. Despite the tough matchup, Smith is a solid start this week.
Sit: Dallas Goedert
Dallas Goedert is out this week, so it’s best to sit him. There are other tight end options available with better matchups and higher upside. Look for other options to fill your tight end spot this week.
Overall, these are some recommendations for your fantasy football lineup in Week 11. Remember to consider your own team’s needs and matchups when making your final decisions. Good luck!
