Week 11 Start and Sit



nysportsday-offerMatt Stafford: The Raiders have allowed the eighth most Fantasy points to opposing QBs in the past four weeks. Just as well, the Lions have allowed the second most to QBs in that stretch. This game has shootout written all over it and Stafford should have to sling it over 35 times, like he has in his previous two.

Mark Sanchez: This will not be a popular pick, but Sanchez is a better Fantasy option than real life player. Last year Sanchez did throw for 300 yards four times and for multiple scores six times.


Andy Dalton: Dalton has come back down to earth over the past month. He has failed to throw for more than 243-yards in his last four games. He did have two games with three passing touchdowns in that stretch, but owners shouldn’t bank on that this week. The Cards have allowed five passing touchdowns in the past four weeks.

Jay Cutler: Cutler has been on a nice roll as of late. However, he had two short passes go for 80+ yards and a score, which really padded his stats against the Rams. Do not expect an encore against the Broncos.

Running Back


Frank Gore: Gore continues to dominate the snaps in Indy, playing over 60 percent of them in Week 9. That gives him a quality outlook against a Falcons defense that has allowed a league high 72 receptions to running backs, as well as 11 total touchdowns. Ahmad Bradshaw is even a considerable punt play given all the byes this week.

Jeremy Langford: Matt Forte did not practice Friday and is a game-time decision. Even so, he has stated he is willing to share touches with Langford. The Broncos have allowed the fourth most Fantasy points to RBs in the past four weeks.


Jeremy Hill: All Hill has left is name recognition. Hill’s yards-per-carry (YPC) is down to 3.2 on the year. He has not recorded 20 touches in a game all year and is doing little with the touches he does receive. The Cards allowed less than 15 Fantasy points per game to opposing backs in the past month.

Eddie Lacy: Another big name, big disappointment. The Vikings are allowing just 13.6 Fantasy points to opposing backs over the past four weeks. James Starks looks to have stolen the lead back job as well. Owners should bench Lacy until he proves worthy of starting again.

Wide Receiver


Michael Crabtree: I already addressed how this game has shootout written all over it. That is good for Crabtree, who is the most targeted wide receiver on the Raiders.

Danny Amendola: The pass has burned the Bills this year. With cornerback Stephon Gilmore covering Brandon LaFell and possibly Rob Gronkowski. Amendola should be heavily targeted stepping in Julian Edelman’s role as the slot receiver. Earlier this year against the Bills Edelman posted 11 receptions, 97 yards and two scores.


A.J. Green: This is my boldest claim of the week. I must say you can only sit Green if you have another solid option. Green has been targeted less than 10 times in four of his last five and only topped 100 yards twice this year. He will have Patrick Peterson shadowing him.

T.Y. Hilton: Despite having the targets go his way, Hilton failed to put up big numbers in either of the two games Matt Hasselbeck started. He posted 67 yards and 88 yards in each game with no touchdowns, respectively. He is a boom or bust play this week.

Tight End


Eric Ebron: In case you haven’t got the message, this game should be a shootout. The Raiders have allowed 10 touchdowns to opposing tight ends and Ebron has turned all three of his red zone targets this year into a touchdown.

Jordan Reed: When Reed is healthy, you start him. He has either caught a touchdown or topped 80 yards in every game he has played this season.


Charles Clay: Clay’s role has been shrinking in the Bills offense. He has not caught a touchdown in the past six games he’s played. The Pats are allowed 5.1 points to opposing tight ends in the past four weeks.

Martellus Bennett: Owning Bennett has been a rollercoaster ride all season. This is not the week to rely on him as he takes on a tough Broncos defense that has limited opposing tight ends to 5 Fantasy points per game over the last month.
