Fantasy football under-the-radar plays — Week 11

Week 11 is already here and I’m back to give out more sleeper plays. My standard for a good fantasy game is around 100 total yards and/or a TD, and this is for PPR scoring. A game with a lot of catches helps too, obviously. Of course, the bar is a little lower for TEs. 

I went 7-6 last week, and you can check out that article here. Not my best work, but certainly not terrible either. I will continue to look for players that can help you with the bye week blues. These players are in no particular order.

QB

Dak Prescott (DAL): The Falcons have allowed 9TDs in their last 4 games and Prescott is playing better with the addition of Amari Cooper. Count on a lot of points getting scored in this game, and the Falcons are giving up over 27FPTS/G to QBs over their last 4 games. Plus, Prescott can get some yards with his legs.

Matthew Stafford (DET): It’s hard to get excited about Stafford, but he’s playing at home with a terrific matchup. The Panthers have given up 15 passing TDs in their last 5 games. He’s worth a flyer if you really need a QB this week.

RB

Alex Collins (BAL): I’m not sure what to expect at QB for the Ravens this week, but I like Collins to score some points. The Bengals are allowing over 5.5 yards per carry to RBs in their last 4 games, and the defense is banged up. Over their last 4 games, Cincinnati has allowed almost 40FPTS/G to RBs.

Mark Ingram (NO): I put him in this article last week, and he came through BIG TIME. The Eagles are a Top 5 matchup for RBs over their last 4 games and allowing 6.6 yards per carry.

David Johnson (ARI): He’s playing the Raiders. That is all.

Phillip Lindsay (DEN): The Chargers give up almost 27FPTS/G to the position over their last 4, and dude is fast.

WR

Demaryius Thomas (HOU): Thomas has a great opportunity against a Washington defense that’s giving up almost 45FPTS/G to WRs. I know he's still learning the offense, but I think Thomas and Hopkins go off here.

TY Hilton (IND): The Titans are a Top 5 matchup for WRs over the last month, Hilton is at home for this game, and Luck hasn’t been sacked in his last 4 games.

Amari Cooper (DAL): I like Dak this week, so it makes a lot of sense that I think Cooper comes through as well. I’ve been on the Cooper train since he was traded, and I don’t see that changing in this potential shootout with the Falcons. The Falcons are allowing over 41FPTS/G to WRs over their last 4 games.

Corey Davis (TEN): The matchup isn’t great, but Davis should continue to get a ton of volume.

Sammy Watkins (KC): If he practices all week with no setbacks, he's a great play.

TE

Austin Hooper (ATL): Hooper was in this article last week and he had a HUGE game. I like his matchup against the Cowboys this week with them allowing 23 catches to TEs in their last 4 games. Dallas gives up almost 17FPTS/G to TEs over the last month.

O.J. Howard (TB): The Giants have given up 29 catches to TEs over the last month. You could certainly do worse at the wasteland that is TE this year.

 

That’s all I have for this week. For more fantasy info, make sure you check out my show Moneyline on ESPN 97.5 every Sunday from 10-noon. Jerry Bo and I will get you ready for kickoff and answer any questions you may have. Also, follow us on Twitter.

Good luck in Week 11!

This week, ESPN released their post-NFL Draft power rankings and lo and behold, the Texans are out of the basement, ranked No. 28. Which is up from No. 32, when the first rankings came out post-free agency.

Another interesting note about the power rankings, the Jets are now behind the Texans after having what was considered to be an all-time great draft haul. Be sure to check out the video as we make sense of these updated rankings, and debate Texans vs Jags, Davis Mills vs. Zach Wilson, and much more!
