Week 11 Start or Sit Advice – Who too Start in Your Fantasy Lineup

Start SIt Advice

Who to start in your Fantasy Football Lineup

Going into Week 11 with just a few weeks to make to playoffs, I think we can all use a win.   Again Im not going to talk about the obvious starts like Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, etc, Im going to mention those middle of the road guys or maybe even a guy like Larry Fitxgerald that has a tough matchup and let you know to sit him.  Similar to what I said last week about Jay Cutler.  I told many of your members to bench him because of his past history of playing at Lambaugh Field.

With that being said, many of you are playing weekly fantasy football at sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings.  This gives us a great opportunity to work in value pics for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups everyweek since many of those guys are the middle of the road guys I spoke about such as a Mark Ingram, Justin Forsett, Mark Sanchez, etc.

This week we have three new quarterbacks in Arizona (Drew Stanton), Houston (Ryan Mallett) and St. Louis (Shaun Hill), which will could impact their wide receivers in a negative way.

Things we to know this week, before the games kickoff — will the Broncos lean on C.J. Anderson or Montee Ball in a good matchup against the Rams. Will Arian Foster (groin) be active, otherwise Alfred Blue could be a sneaky sleeper this week against the Browns.  I think Bernard will be out again, so Hill will be the guy in Cincinnati

This we will be wondering about, will Jay Cutler  rebound against the Vikings? Does Ben Roethlisberger andn the Steelers get back on track this week against the Titans. After a great game last week will Mark Sanchez be able to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in week 11.

Now let’s answer some of your start sit questions this week and find the best matchups we can for your fantasy team.

Quarterbacks to Start Week 11

Jay Cutler vs Min

Despite Jay Cutler’s performance the last few weeks, he can still help your team. I warned everybody last week that Lambeau Field has been a house of horrors for him, but this week returning home should be a boost of confidence, if not playing the  Vikings should be. Minnesota has allowed four quarterbacks, Drew Brees, Rodgers and even Kyle Orton to throw multiple touchdowns and score at least 19 fantasy points.  Cutler has scored at least 20 Fantasy points in two of his 3 home games this season.

 Mark Sanchez  vs at GB

Seems everyone is jumping on the Sanchez band wagon.  He looked good in the preseason and lets face it he has nothing to lose so there is no pressure.  His price in weekly fantasy leagues was great last week so he was a great option.

He ended the game with 332 passing yards and two touchdowns. He just missed a third touchdown when Brent Celek was ruled down at the 1-yard line as well

I could easily see the Eagles needing to put up points in this game, which should mean plenty of pass attempts for Sanchez,  Im sure there will be an interception or two with Sanchez on the road, but we’ll still trust in him as a starting option based on his potential in this system and the need to throw the ball.


Ben Roethlisberger PIT (at TEN)

He’s been great at home with at least 18 Fantasy points in all five outings, including three games of 28 points or more. But in five road games he’s scored 19 Fantasy points or less in each game.  This week he could break that trend.  Only three quarterbacks have scored at least 20 Fantasy points against the Titans which would be his best game on the road this season.

 Matt Ryan vs. Carolina Panthers

It’s tough to trust Ryan on the road, and you shouldn’t unless you are out of quarterback options. Based on the matchup it looks good, after all look what mark Sanchez did to them last week. Carolina has also allowed 19 touchdown passes, which is tied for third-most.


Quarterbacks to Sit Week 11

 Russell Wilson vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Wilson is tough to bench from a fantasy perspective, and you shouldn’t do it unless you have a reliable alternative on your roster. Just keep in mind that the Chiefs are extremely tough on quarterbacks at Arrowhead Stadium, just ask Tom Brady.  They help him to less than 15 fantasy points.  They are surrendering an average of 222.5 passing yards and fewer than 14 fantasy points per game.


Andy Dalton vs. New Orleans Saints

Dalton has been struggling and this week’s matchup against the Saints won’t help either, as opposing quarterbacks have struggled at the Superdome

Only Aaron Rodgers, Romo and Ryan were able to score over 20 Fantasy this season against them.


Running Backs to Start Week 11

Mark Ingram vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals have given up the most fantasy points to running backs since week 7

Ingram has been on a tear lately, scoring double-digit fantasy points in each of his last three games rushing for 100 or more yards. He’ll should make it four in a row against the Bengals, who have surrendered the most fantasy points to running backs in the last four weeks.


Ahmad Bradshaw vs. New England Patriots

Bradshaw has been one of the more consistent running backs in fantasy land been great for DFS players because of his price and consistent output. He has put up double diit fantasy  points six times this season. He should have another great week because the Patriots give up the 6th most fantasy points to running backs.


Ryan Mathews  vs Oakland Raiders – Weekly FanDuel & DraftKings Sleeper Pick!

Mathews is expected to return this week and he comes back to a great matchup against the Raiders.  They are among the worst teams against opposing running backs with 12 touchdowns allowed and nine scoring double digits in Fantasy points. . Branden Oliver put up 124 combined rushing and receiving yards and a touchdown  against them at Oakland in Week 6. Mathews could in for something  similar if he gets the touches


Shane Vereen (at IND): A potential shootout and Brady like to throw to him.
C.J. Anderson (at STL): He could take over as the main back if he does well..
Terrance West (vs. HOU): Got a majority of the touches last week.
Bishop Sankey (vs. PIT): Great matchup and got the bulk of the carries last week
