What We Learned From Week 11

Week 11 was full of twists, shocks, and upsets. Here are some of the lessons our experts learned this week, and how it will help you gain an advantage this fantasy season

Cowboys offense is lethal

Cowboys throttled the Vikings, and while the defense played fantastic, the offense took advantage of every opportunity. Zeke Elliott and Tony Pollard both scored two touchdowns and Dak put together a good day in the air finding CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Noah Brown, and Dalton Schultz open in the Vikings Secondary. The Vikings defense has put up good games against stellar teams, such as the Bills, but could not hang with Dem Boyz.

Jamaal Williams has too much TD upside to bench

Williams took the NFL lead with his 12th touchdown on the season and third of the day against the Giants, cementing him as a must start RB despite inconsistency throughout the year. Williams has continued to edge out Swift in touches since his return, and has been more productive overall. As long as the Lions offense remains one of the best in the NFL, Williams has big TD upside.

Jonathon Taylor is Back

Taylor has been money since Jeff Saturday has taken the helm of the Colts offense. Matt Ryan coming back has helped Taylor tremendously, and Taylor seems to have found his stride in a simplified Saturday offense. The Colts offense looks better than before and it is because they are running the rock with JT. JT found the end zone again this week and managed over 90 total yards in a loss to the Eagles tough defense. Taylor should return to RB1 ranks continuously throughout the next few weeks.

Antonio Gibson has fantasy value

Despite losing his job to rookie RB Brian Robinson, Gibson has found himself a solid role in the offense earning the receiving job in the absence of McKissic. Gibson saw goos usage in the ground game, outtouching and outproducing Robinson as both a runner and receiver. McKissic is out for the year, which means Gibson has a carved out role as the main receiver out of the backfield, and should see more usage with Robinson continuing to struggle. Gibson is a flex play in most leagues.

Defenses and Kickers make a difference

Most fantasy experts talk about the skill positions that make a difference but this week is a great example of why it is important to pay attention to D/ST and Kickers. Washington, Dallas, and New England all had matchup changing performances facing against favorable matchups. Tyler Bass and Brett Maher also had big days which made opposing fantasy managers rage. While it is not the most important positions, this is a friendly reminder to pay attention to each position and each matchup in order to give yourself the best chance at success.
