Week 11: Get 'Em In, Get 'Em Out

SHARE:

I have lost five straight fantasy matchups after starting the season 5-0.  My latest loss coming from a single point.  So take advice from me at your own risk... BUT WE ARE HAVING FUN.  FANTASY FOOTBALL IS FUN, REMEMBER?  Week 11, lets go...

Cincinnati Bengals @ Washington Football Team

  • Get 'Em In
    • Alex Smith - Why not?  Why not give him some love after everything he has been through.  Smith threw for 390 yards last week, and while he did not register a touchdown, the yardage is nothing to sneeze at.  The Bengals offer another favorable matchup for Smith this week.  Favorable enough that Smith can be used as a flier Sunday and a cheap option in all daily formats.  The yardage should surely come down, but a touchdown or two will help offset that.  He is worth it with his cheap price.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Gio Bernard - Bernard has not done much with all the playing time in Joe Mixon's absence.  Bernard has rushed for more than 60 yards only one time in the four games he has been the starter.  Last week was his worst outing out of all of them with 47 scrimmage yards and no touchdowns.  That downward trend should continue this week against the underrated Washington defense.  Against the run they are a top 10 unit.

Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints

  • Get 'Em In
    • Michael Thomas - At some point Michael Thomas has to have a blow up game.  He has to.  Even if it's just one.  There is no way he is going through an entire NFL season and not score more than 10 points in a game.  Let's hope that one is this Sunday.  I do not even care that it is Jameis Winston Taysom Hill as his quarterback.  These Falcons/Saints games tend to be high scoring and the Falcons have the 30th ranked pass defense.  As frustrated as we all are with Thomas, there is no way you are sitting him.  Ride him out. 
     
  •  Get 'Em Out
    • Todd Gurley - Gurley has scored in all but two games this season.  That makes him such a tough sit because you would start anyone if you knew you could get a score out of them.  But this Saints defense just will not let up against the run.  They remain the second best rushing unit in the league and have only allowed five touchdowns on the ground, which is tied for best in the NFL.  I would tread lightly with Gurley for this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Get 'Em In
    • Ben Roethlisberger - There may be some trepidation here after the surprisingly tough sledding the Jaguars caused Aaron Rodgers last week, but I would still start Ben confidently.  Regardless of what the Jaguars did last week, they are still a bottom 5 pass defense and Ben is coming off his best game of the season.  Last week against the Bengals, Ben through for 333 yards and four touchdowns.  And he has two strong starts in a row as the week before he threw for 306 and three touchdowns against Dallas.  Look for Ben to now have three really good starts in a row.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • DJ Chark - All you ever hear about is how good this Steelers defense is.  But is it?  Against the pass, they are actually middle of the road and they have allowed 12 passing touchdowns on this season.  So while you could expect some Chark success yourself, I don't.  Steelers will game plan for Chark as the Jags number one passing option.  With Minkah always lurking back there to jump a route he will have eyes on Chark all afternoon.  And Jake Luton facing this pass rush will be a problem in itself. 

New England Patriots @ Houston Texans

  • Get 'Em In
    • Jakobi Meyers -  From Week 1 to Week 6, Meyers had one catch for seven yards.  That's it.  From Weeks 7 to 10, Meyers has 27 catches for 346 yards.  That is over 12 yards a catch and its evident he has become Cam Newton's number one target.  The one area you can slight him in is the fact he has not brought in a receiving touchdown yet.  That is more a testament to Cam Newton as he has only thrown three all season.  The Texans middling secondary provides both Cam and Meyers their best chance all season at linking up with a touchdown.  But, touchdown or not, Meyers has scored no less than ten fantasy points since that Week 7 game, giving him a solid WR3 floor.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Deshaun Watson - Going to be upfront with you.  Not a lot of reasoning besides I don't love the matchup.  I will love it even less if Gilmore makes a return to the Patriots defense.  The Patriots are coming off a big win in which they stymied the Ravens offense, and granted, the weather helped them.  But if they can control Lamar, they can control Watson, who will fight to stay upright behind a bad offensive line.  I think the Patriots will dial it up against him all day long.  Watson has only two 30+ performances all season and is coming off a 15 point output.  He will fall somewhere in the middle of those two outputs.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Cleveland Browns

  • Get 'Em In
    • Browns Defense -  The Eagles offensive line is in shambles.  Carson Wentz continues to play bad football.  And the Browns, even with Myles Garrett on the Covid List, have a strong defensive front that is clearly better than the Eagles offensive front.  Browns make for a strong streaming option with teams like the Niners, Bears, and Bills all on bye weeks. 
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Alshon Jeffery - The Eagles said they would ease Jeffery into play, and that was an understatement.  Jeffery saw one target against the Giants last week, which he did not bring in.  Doug Pederson claims Jeffery's playing time will ramp up, but in what capacity?  Two targets? Three?  Wait and see approach still for Alshon.

Detroit Lions @ Carolina Panthers

  • Get 'Em In
    • Mike Davis - McCaffrey continues to be back on the sideline and Davis could not have a better matchup.  The Lions are dead last against the run, and also it appears they will be without Teddy Bridgewater and should lean HEAVILY on the run.  I am very confident in saying this will be a monster day from Davis, because there is honestly no reason why it should not be.

  • Get 'Em Out
    • DJ Moore/Curtis Samuel - The Panthers are looking at either Will Grier or P.J. Walker (who?) at quarterback.  And while I personally am a huge Will Grier fan, he looked far from NFL ready last year in his couple of chances.  The shotty quarterback play will make any Panthers pass catchers tough to trust until Bridgewater returns to the lineup.

Tennessee Titans @ Baltimore Ravens

  • Get 'Em In
    • Gus Edwards - Mark Ingram made his return last week, yet Edwards still saw a decent work load and produced with that workload.  Edwards ran seven times for 42 yards.  Meaning a whopping six yards a carry.  What was more appealing was the fact he out touched rookie JK Dobbins also.  Edwards has a role in this offense that is not going away.  That makes him a solid flex play in a season where we are all getting desperate for playable running backs.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jonnu Smith - That flaming hot start to the season Jonnu had sure did burn out fast.  He is officially touchdown dependent making him a massive bust candidate every week.  He did score last week, but that came on a one yard run.  That's right, a run.  You know that is not going to continue when Derrick Henry is your running back.
New York Jets @ LA Chargers
  • Get 'Em In
    • Kalen Ballage - You simply have to believe at this point.  Ballage has burst onto the scene with a 15 point fantasy day, followed by a 14 point fantasy day.  The second saw him get slightly more work, and Head Coach Anthony Lynn has said he will now see even MORE work.  He is averaging over four yards a carry and now gets to play the woeful Jets with their bottom third run defense.  Start Ballage as a borderline RB1 this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Sam Ficken - Hey, maybe you're desperate for a kicker or yours is on a bye.  Well don't settle on Ficken to be your bye week kicker.  Ficken has not kicked since Week 6 because of a groin injury and I would not trust him on a team that needs to go for it on fourth down and not settle for field goals.  You can find plenty other bye week kicker options. 

Miami Dolphins @ Denver Broncos

  • Get 'Em In
    • Dolphins Defense -  That's right.  The unheralded 6-3 Miami Dolphins boast one of the overall best defensive units in the league.  Do I love a team from South Beach playing at altitude in Denver?  No I don't.  But, Drew Lock healthy stinks, and Drew Lock is hurt.  And that I love.  Fins up.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • DeVante Parker - Parker was in a great spot last week and I hyped him up and bought into that self made hype.  All for two catches.  The two catches was on seven targets, which simply goes to show you Tua and his receivers are still working on chemistry.  I think this is a low scoring ground game overall and foresee all Miami pass catches to have quiet days up at Mile High.

Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings

  • Get 'Em In
    • CeeDee Lamb - Through this god awful, tumultuous Dallas' season, the rookie Lamb has actually been the most consistent Cowboys offensive weapon.  Dalton is also back under center, and even though the sample size is small, Lamb has gotten more targets from Dalton than anyone else.  The Vikings are also very beatable.  If you cannot play a Cowboys wideout against the Vikings, then when can you?  I would treat Lamb and Cooper as WR2's and Gallup as a sleeper candidate.  Also, you want a really bold prediction?  The Cowboys not only will cover the spread, they are going to win and head into Thanksgiving with first place on the line at, is this right?  3-7?  Yes, first place on the line at 3-7.  Wow.

  • Get 'Em Out
    • Andy Dalton - Just because I am comfortable starting CeeDee Lamb, does not mean you should feel comfortable starting Andy Dalton.  It's simple.  It's easier to have a successful fantasy day from a wideout making a couple catches than it is a quarterback making a couple of completions.

Green Bay Packers @ Indianapolis Colts

  • Get 'Em In
    • Nyheim Hines - Hines clearly has a role in this offense that is not going to go away.  His speed and shiftiness when he's on the field is too good to leave him off the field.  Also, if Green Bay is able to get out in front this game and the Colts need to pass, Hines is the best pass catching back the Colts have.  Also, any runs Hines does get, will just be a bonus as the Packers run defense continues to get shredded every single game.  Hines has worked himself into a solid flex play every week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Colts Defense - The Colts defense has quietly been one of the best defenses in the league, and in fantasy purposes all season.  Only twice has the Colts defense not been able to produce at least ten fantasy points.  With Aaron Rodgers squaring off with them though, he can beat any defense on any given day.  This could easily shape up to be the third time the Colts defense doesn't post double digit fantasy points. 

Kansas City Chiefs @ Las Vegas Raiders

  • Get 'Em In
    • Henry Ruggs - Ruggs has had a very rough start to his NFL career.  One that has seen him score only a single time.  That one time?  Back in Week 5 against these same Chiefs.  Is that a reason to simply start Ruggs?  Well no.  But regardless of output, Ruggs has continued to get the most snaps out of any wide receiver on the Raiders.  And in a game that I like to be an offensive explosion again like back in Week 5, the snaps and potential game flow make Ruggs a viable flex play in my opinion. 
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Nelson Agholor - Every single one of Agholor's good fantasy days were because of a touchdown.  If you take his touchdowns away this season, Agholor has a total of 49 fantasy points.  That is a measley 5.4 points a week.  Agholor is the definition of touchdown dependent, and if I am going to roll the dice on one of those guys for this game, it's Ruggs because of his game breaking speed.  Not Agholor.

Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Get 'Em In
    • Ryan Succop - Ryan Succop has been the fourth best fantasy kicker this season with 92 fantasy points.  That is good for just shy of ten fantasy points a game.  From a kicker?!  That is fantastic.  And something tells me that even though both of these teams have strong defenses, it is going to be the strong offenses that shine.  That means points, points, points.

  • Get 'Em Out
    • Running Backs - Yes I mean all running backs that are playing in this game.  Sit them.  The Rams continue to have a rotation of three through Henderson, Akers, Brown, and anyone can be the one to score on a given day.  As for the Buccaneers, they had not even had a resemblance of a running game since Week 6 before RoJo gashed the Panthers last week, but that is just expected with the Panthers bottom of the barrel run defense.  The Bucs should have to take back to the air this week instead of running straight into Aaron Donald's gut.  The entire situation on both ends stinks for the fantasy world.
