Week 11 Start/Sits – Sunday Late Games, SNF & MNF

By Dave Moore (@davieremixed)

Without doubt, the biggest head scratcher of a fantasy football player is deciding who to start in their line-up each week. There is nothing worse than leaving a game on your bench and spending the entirety of the next week dwelling in hindsight.

Whether you’re in 1 league or 100 leagues, setting your line-ups is the most crucial part of your fantasy week and we’re here to let you know which players are in the best environments to boom and which are most likely destined to bust.

Don’t forget to keep your #EyesPeeled for tomorrow’s podcast where we dive into a full preview of the weekend games and make sure you head over to Twitter (@F10YFantasy) for “Start ‘em, sit ‘em, GIF ‘EM!”.

Spoiler alert: I still don’t like the Cowboys. 

Sunday Late Games

Matchup: Miami Dolphins @ Denver Broncos

Charles LeClaire - USA Today Sports

Start of the Game

Jakeem Grant – Wide Receiver – Miami Dolphins

He’s not the WR1 by any stretch but with Preston Williams out of the picture for Miami, I like Grant to build on his improving season after impressing on Special Teams. He went 4/43/1 against the Chargers which isn’t life changing but this Broncos team could be checked out for the season and I like this pick as a WR3/Flex choice.

Other Notable Starts

Miami Dolphins – N/A

Denver Broncos – N/A

Sit of the Game

Phillip Lindsay – Running Back – Denver Broncos

My hopes for Lindsay making himself the RB1 in Denver have faded as quickly as Denver’s AFC Wildcard ambitions did after their early bye week. Lindsay gained two total yards on four carries against the Raiders and it isn’t like the game was out of hand early so they had to abandon the run. It was 6-10 at the half! Sit him. Trade him. Cut him. Do not start him.

Other Notable Sits

Miami Dolphins – Durham Smythe – Tight End

Denver Broncos – Tim Patrick – Wide Receiver

Matchup: New York Jets @ Los Angeles Chargers

Gary A Vasquez - USA Today Sports

Start of the Game

Jalen Guyton – Wide Receiver – Los Angeles Chargers

If the Jets have anything to say about this game then the Chargers will not be able to Charger this up. The Jets seem pretty hopeless in most areas so let’s go with a WR3 who saw more targets than Mike Williams against the Dolphins in Jalen Guyton. There’s a chance you’ve got him stashed in your Taxi squad for Dynasty leagues. He’s had several single-digit Fantasy scores this year but against a bad Jets team, I fancy him to end with a line like the one he had in Week 7 against the Jags (2/84/1)…Maybe a lower YPC though!

Other Notable Starts

New York Jets – Denzel Mims – Wide Receiver

Los Angeles Chargers – Justin Herbert – Quarterback

Rich Barnes - USA Today Sports

Sit of the Game

Breshad Perriman – Wide Receiver – New York Jets

Whilst Jalen Guyton’s WR2 performance last week gets the proverbial juices flowing, not all cats are skinned the same and I am talking about Breshad Perriman here. Yes, a 5/101/2 game against The (Crumbling) Evil Empire is impressive but for me to believe in a Jets player for Fantasy from here on in I am going to have to see back-to-back performances of good calibre. I’m not a Perri-fan but go out there and prove me wrong, Breshad.

Other Notable Sits

New York Jets – Frank Gore – Running Back

Los Angeles Chargers – N/A

Matchup: Green Bay Packers @ Indianapolis Colts

Brian Spurlock - USA Today Sports

Start of the Game

Nyheim Hines – Running Back – Indianapolis Colts

Did we see the changing of the guard in Indy? After Marlon Mack goes down for the season, the opportunity is bestowed upon rookie Jonathan Taylor to get out there and do his thing but he’s not taken that chance. As much was proved last Thursday when Nyheim Hines turned in another quality performance with a pair of scores and 100+ scrimmage yards. Against a Packers team who are terrible against the run I like this matchup a lot.

Other Notable Starts

Green Bay Packers – Allen Lazard – Wide Receiver

Indianapolis Colts – N/A

Don Wright - AP

Sit of the Game

Mo Alie-Cox – Tight End – Indianapolis Colts

Nothing personal Big MAC. I promise. As bad as the Packers are against the run in Fantasy, their Fantasy D against Tight Ends? Stands for Dynamite. They’ve given up just one TD to a Tight End this year, tied for 2nd. The only team who have given up zero? The Colts. Back to Mo, he’s not turned in a big day in Fantasy since September against…You guessed it. The Jets.

Other Notable Sits

Green Bay Packers – Robert Tonyan – Tight End

Indianapolis Colts – N/A

Matchup: Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings

Michael Conroy - AP

Start of the Game

Kirk Cousins – Quarterback – Minnesota Vikings

I’ll step aboard Kirk the Crooner’s (if you know, you know and can’t unsee it) bandwagon for a game and say that he’s going to be a bigger impact here than he was against the Bears. Dallas is average in terms of the points they allow to QBs in Fantasy and I just feel like there’s more to come this year from Cousins with Thielen and Jefferson at his disposal.

Other Notable Starts

Dallas CowboysAmari Cooper – Wide Receiver

Minnesota Vikings – Justin Jefferson – Wide Receiver

Michael Ainsworth - AP

Sit of the Game

Andy Dalton – Quarterback – Dallas Cowboys

I really agonised over this pick. The temptation is there to put Zeke as my Sit of the Game but I’ll give him one more chance! Just one! However, with Andy Dalton doing little to inspire confidence before getting hurt a few weeks ago I don’t trust him to do much more than be barely above average so if you’ve got Josh Allen or another QB on a bye week and you’re feeling a bit funky…Don’t do it.

Other Notable Starts

Dallas Cowboys – Michael Gallup – Wide Receiver

Minnesota Vikings – N/A

Sunday Night Football

Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs @ Las Vegas Raiders

Start of the Game

Clyde Edwards-Helaire – Running Back – Kansas City Chiefs

CEH perhaps hasn’t lit the world on fire as some would’ve hoped after his Week 1 opening salvo against the Texans but it’s important to remember that he’s playing in a pass-first Chiefs team. However, with the majority of the Raiders defensive line landing on the Covid list this week there’s a great deal of uncertainty heading into this game which I see as a fine opportunity for CEH to put up a Texans/Bills-style performance (ripping off over 100 yards on the ground both times). Eyes peeled!

Other Notable Starts

Kansas City Chiefs – Demarcus Robinson – Wide Receiver

Las Vegas Raiders – N/A

Brian Blanco - AP

Sit of the Game

Nelson Agholor – Wide Receiver – Las Vegas Raiders

Back in Week 5, Agholor hauled in a score and 67 yards against the Chiefs but I don’t fancy him to have such good fortunes this time around. With the success the Raiders had against the Broncos I expect them to return to that well again fancy a Chiefs D that doesn’t defend the run particularly well.

Other Notable Sits

Kansas City Chiefs – N/A

Las Vegas Raiders – N/A

Monday Night Football

Matchup: Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kim Klement - USA Today Sports

Start of the Game

Leonard Fournette – Running Back – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A tough one this week in Primetime in terms of finding the guy but I do like Leonard Fournette to be given an absolute ton of carries to try and wear down this Rams pass-rush and also protect Tom Brady from being lit up by said Aaron Donald & Co. Ronald Jones II was the lead back for the Bucs last week but I prefer Fournette’s style of running in this matchup and I firmly believe he’s a goer in PPR, also.

Other Notable Starts

Los Angeles Rams – N/A

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – N/A

Sit of the Game

Jared Goff – Quarterback – Los Angeles Rams

This game could be an absolute classic but not for those of us picking who to Start/Sit. This guy shouldn’t be starting in many matchups but just to reiterate. Sit Jared Goff. The Rams style of play does not a winning Fantasy team make. Goff’s record this year sees him breaking the 17 point mark three times. This is a messy one to unpick and the only loose thread I see here is the Rams QB.

Other Notable Sits

Los Angeles Rams – Darrell Henderson Jr – Running Back

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Antonio Brown – Wide Receiver, Mike Evans – Wide Receiver
