Wanted to put down some Week 11 thoughts.

Games to Avoid

There’s only two matchups this week that don’t have any top 10 positional points allowed for *either* team. As in neither team gives up top 10 points to any position.

San Francisco @ Jacksonville

Not a matchup you thought I’d say, is it? The Jags just aren’t as bad as you are thinking. I mean, they’re not good, but they aren’t giving up huge games either.  Meanwhile, the Niner’s defense is just generally good. 

Particular Players Impacted:

  • Jeff Wilson is a popular play this weekend with Elijah Mitchell Limited or Out, but I fear he’s a bit of a trap.
  • Not feeling great about starting Brandon Aiyuk.

New York Giants @ Tamp Bay

Another surprise, especially seeing Tampa Bay with the 30th most WR points allowed per game over their past 4 games. I had to double check it. The Bucs have two losses in that time that allowed their opponents to run more and it may be something opponents are figuring out.

Particular Players Impacted:

  • Avoiding all the Giants players I can. 
  • Fournette isn’t all that bad a play even still.

Games to Stack Players

These are games that should feature lots of opportunities for points making even some bench players flex-worthy.

New York Jets @ Miami

The Jets are giving up the most points to QB, RB, and WR while the Dolphins are giving it up to receivers.

Particular Players Impacted:

  • Myles Gaskin has taken his share of criticism but I think this is a week to take the chance.
  • Bounce back week for Mike Gesicki
  • Devante Parker will probably score more points than you think he will.

Houston @ Tennessee

Houston is nearly a 4 for 4 top points allowed while the Titans are giving it up in the air.

Particular Players Impacted:

  • Tyrod Taylor and Brandin Cooks game.
  • D’Onta Foreman is the RB pickup you actually wanted facing off against the team that cut him.
  • Firkser is even worth a dice roll if you need a TE that bad.

Surprise Results from the Start-O-Matic

These are some Start Scores that surprised me. Keep in mind 5 is excellent, 4 is great, 3 is good, 2 is a flex, 1-0 are avoids.

  • Devontae Booker, NYG vs TB, 3.1 Start Score – Clearly this is if Barkley is out.
  • Cole Beasley, BUF vs IND, 2.7 Start Score – The hit or miss WR has a good matchup.
  • Christian Kirk ARI vs SEA, 2.5 Start Score
  • Pat Freiermuth, PIT vs LAC, 2.4 Start Score
  • Tee Higgins, CIN vs LV, 2.3 Start Score
  • Terry McLaurin, WAS vs CAR, 2.3 Start Score
  • Mike Evans, TB vs NYG, 2.0 Start Score
  • Brandon Aiyuk, SF vs JAC, 1.8 Start Score
