Start/Sit: Week 11

Start: Daniel Jones vs Detroit

Daniel Jones is not going to be a guy that blows up in many weeks. That being said, he can work as a serviceable starter for matchups. QBs like Justin Herbert, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rodgers have been underwhelming this year and other starting QBs like Kyler Murray have unfavorable matchups. In comes Danny Dimes. Despite only throwing 17 times against a Houston defense, Jones landed as a top 15 QB on the week. Jones has a highly favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions, who have allowed the most fantasy points to QBs this year. Jones should be efficient throwing the ball with limited passing and a star workhorse RB making him a reliable start against a bad defense.

Sit: Kirk Cousins vs Dallas

Cousins has served as a reliable starter this year, coming in as the QB12 on the season. Cousins has landed as a top 15 QB 6 times this year and has not scored under 12 points this season (against Philly). That being said there are several factors playing into this sit. First and foremost, this game is an afternoon game, which Kirk has not been known to shine in. Second off, the Cowboys have ranked 3rd against the pass this year, making it a less than favorable matchup for Cousins. The Vikings have given Cousins a plethora of weapons, but we could be in line for an average Kirk performance despite these threats.

Start: David Montgomery vs Atlanta

Montgomery will not have to split carries this week, as Khalil Herbert has landed on IR. Montgomery will lose yards to Justin Fields, but could see a bulk of the RB touches and red zone carries with Herbert out. The Falcons are ranked 23rd against fantasy backs this year, making Montgomery a matchup favorite for fantasy managers dealing with injuries or bye weeks.

Sit: Najee Harris vs Cincinatti

Najee's stats showed some flashes of his former self but do not be fooled by stats alone. Najee ripped off his longest run of the year, a 36 yard run that ended with Najee struggling to get up. We saw Jaylen Warren getting a substantial amount of playing time, especially after Harris lost a fumble. Harris has been less than efficient this year, and it cannot be fully blamed on the line. Warren has looked more explosive overall, and should receive more and more touches as long as Harris continues to struggle. The Steelers face the Bengals in Week 11, that are top 10 against RBs this year.

Start: Antonio Gibson vs Houston

Gibson has taken over the pass catching role in J.D. McKissic's absence, and has seen consistent usage in the run game. Robinson still is seemingly the lead back, but it is Gibson that has found flex potential as a back. Gibson has been given 14+ touches for 4 weeks now, and is going into a two game span with favorable matchups. This week Gibson faces off against the worst run defense in the Houston Texans, and should see plenty of opportunities to make his mark as a runner and receiver.

Sit: D'Andre Swift vs New York Giants

Swift has been limited by injury most of this year, a frustrating thing for managers who spent hefty capitol on Swift this draft. Swift has been given limited touches since coming back in Week 8, but has hidden it with 2 TDs since then. Swift has not had more than 10 touches since coming back, and is becoming insanely TD dependent. He has not finished as a top 20 back since Week 3, and it looks like his touches are not going to increase soon. The coaches do not seemingly trust Swift to stay healthy, and managers should not expect the touches to get better. He is a high risk play against a 13th ranked Giants run defense.

Start: Courtland Sutton vs Denver

If Jeudy remains out for another week, Sutton should be in line for another solid day. With Jeudy going down, Suttons saw 11 targets in the game against Tennesee. Sutton has a favorable matchup against the Raiders (19th against fantasy WRs), and could be in line for another high usage day. The Broncos offense has been underwhelming, but Sutton could be the highlight in a dismal offense.

Sit: Allen Robinson vs New Orleans

You could be tempted to start Allen Robinson with Kupp out, but the outcome may not end up being the one desired. Stafford could come back next week, but the Rams offense has been underwhelming this year so there is not a lot of hope for Robinson. Robinson managed only 4 receptions with Kupp exiting last week, and managed just 44 yards. New Orleans is a good pass defense who can contain this struggling offense.

Start: Brandon Aiyuk vs Arizona

Aiyuk struggled against a good matchup last week, but could see a big bounce back against the Cardinals. In a run heavy scheme, Aiyuk found himself 7 targets which he turned into 6 receptions for 84 yards. Aiyuk should be a consistent starter with better upside after leading the 49ers in targets, receptions, and yardage in Week 10. He did lose a fumble last week, but he should be in for a better day, especially in PPR leagues.

Sit: Darius Slayton vs Detroit

Slayton's performance last week could tempt owners into playing him against a bad Detroit defense. Slayton's target share looks good, until you look at the passing attempts. Jones only passed 17 times last week, and Slayton saw only 4 of those. The Giants clearly want to run the ball, and even if they pass, Saquan if the clear favorite target. Slayton's lack of overall usage negates his big target share in an offense that wants to run Saquan as much as they can.

Start: Foster Mareau vs Denver

TE's are difficult to predict, but Mareau could see consistent usage with Waller out another week. He has seen 4+ targets every game he has played this year, and has produced over 80 yards and a TD the past two weeks. Last week Moreau landed as a top 5 TE, and could be in for another solid outing against a tough Denver defense.

Sit: Tyler Higbee vs New Orleans

Higbee could be used more with Kupp going down, but New Orleans is a top defense against TEs this year. Higbee saw plenty of targets last week, but could have Wolford back at QB and a tough matchup compared the Arizona Cardinals who are not good against TEs this year. New Orleans has allowed the fewest fantasy points to TEs this year, and should be able to lock down a struggling Rams offense without their best player.

Start: Washington Commanders vs Houston

Washington is a great stream defense option for managers against a bad Houston team. Washington should blitz a lot against Davis Mills, and are coming off against a dominant performance against Jalen Hurts. The Texans have been bad this defense, with Dameon Pierce being the only bright spot, so Washington should have no problem creating turnovers in Week 11.

Sit: Minnesota Vikings vs Cowboys

Vikings have been a top 15 defense this year, and were able to create 4 turnovers against an elite Bills offense. While it looks good on paper, the Vikings also allowed a lot of yardage to the Bills and benefited from the Bills cold sloppy play. The Vikings are facing off against the Cowboys who have put up 6 passing TDs in the past two games. The Vikings are worthy of playing, but there are better options on the waivers for Week 11.
