It’s Week 11 and my word, have we had a long 11 weeks in Fantasy football. The list of injuries is phenomenal and the Bye weeks have made it difficult to pick the best starting lineup.
In Week 10 though, we made some sturdy picks to help you pick up decent fantasy points in a depleted pool of players to choose from. In fact, here are some of those:
JuJu Smith-Schuster = 13.70 Fantasy Points (97 Total Yards & 1 TD)
Orleans Darkwa = 10.80 Fantasy Points (88 Total Yards & 2-Point Conversion)
A.J. Green = 15.50 Fantasy Points (115 Total Yards & 1 TD)
This is the last week that teams are on their Bye (Hooray!!) and these teams include:
- Carolina Panthers
- Indianapolis Colts
- New York Jets
- San Francisco 49ers
Week 11: Which Player Has To Start In NFL Fantasy This Week?Each week members of Into The End Zone makes their one pick for a player must start in your NFL Fantasy Football team.
This could be because we like the match up, they're already scoring points for fun or because we genuinely just fancy it!
IntoTheEndZone Team Player Name Position Team Opponent Reason To Start Them Thomas Kirk Cousins Quarterback Washington Redskins @ New Orleans Saints Man, the Saints are rolling ... so, this looks like a bit of a hit or miss pick. But, Cousins has just put up 23.58 Fantasy Points against a strong Vikings D and this game with the Saints is going to score BIG! Bold prediction but I see Cousins throwing for at least 3 TD's in this one. Neil Travis Kelce Tight End Kansas City Chiefs @ New York Giants Kelce is coming off a Bye week and will be hungry to take advantage of a free-falling team. As good as the defense of New York should be they are struggling with having to be on the pitch for most of the game and Kelce is Alex Smith's favourite target. Matt ("Stats") Isaiah Crowell Running Back Cleveland Browns vs. Jacksonville Jaguars The Browns' lead back put up his second highest score this season last week of 15.5.
The Jaguars give up on average 120 rushing yards per game 8th worst in the league.
I expect the Browns to go to ground against the stingiest passing D in the league.
Carter Melvin Gordon Running Back Los Angeles Chargers vs. Buffalo Bills After a quiet game for Gordon against Jacksonville I expect a quick turn around for him against the Bills, they have given up a league high 14 rushing touchdowns this season and 6 of them came last week against the Saints.
- What do you make of these selections?
