We’ve got some fantastic matchups on the tv this weekend! Are you ready for them?
I’m here with my quick-hitting thoughts to help you get ready for your fantasy matchups heading into week 11! If you’d like a little bit more in-depth studying, you can also find my weekly rankings here or my in-depth player notes can be found in The Primer moving forward.
Here are some last-minute quick-hit items designed to help you live your best fantasy life in Week 11.
5 Players I Like More Than ECR
Antonio Gibson: It’s a much smaller gap this time, but Gibson still belongs in starting lineups this week. With his workload and goal-line work, there’s no reason we should have him outside of mid-range RB2 territory with upside. He’s RB19 in ECR and RB16 in my rankings.
Michael Gallup: Just like with Wilson, I fully expect this ranking to rise with the news that Amari Cooper is out for this matchup. The upside is through the roof for the talented wideout and he belongs in your starting lineup. He’s WR34 in ECR and WR20 in my rankings.
Darnell Mooney: With the news that Allen Robinson is listed as doubtful for this matchup, Mooney should see an uptick in targets. He moves from a low-end WR3 to a high-end WR3 in my rankings. He’s WR32 in ECR and WR26 in my rankings.
Cam Newton: He’s back! Newton’s the starting QB again in Carolina and we know that he’s going to be utilized around the goal-line. We don’t know what version of Cam we’re going to see as a passer, but he’s a solid bet to find the end zone as a runner and that’s worth consideration as a high-end QB2. He’s QB13 in my rankings versus QB15 in ECR.
5 Players I Like Less Than ECR
Myles Gaskin: I understand that it’s the Jets, but it’s still Gaskin. I would prefer to play other options versus rolling the dice with the underperforming RB asset. He’s RB18 in ECR and RB22 in my rankings.
Josh Jacobs: This isn’t a big deal – and it’s mostly because there are other options with better matchups – but he’s RB17 in ECR and RB20 in my rankings.
Tyler Lockett: What has Lockett done recently to warrant a shocking WR15 ranking in ECR? He has week-winning upside, of course, but the floor is incredibly low. He’s WR22 in my rankings.
Mike Williams: Just like with Lockett, what has Williams done recently to warrant even a WR24 ranking in ECR? He’s WR31 in my rankings.
TJ Hockenson: Hockenson’s coming off a down performance, but that doesn’t play a huge role in his lower ranking here. It’s more predicated upon the fact that there are other options I prefer this week over him. He’s TE7 in ECR and TE10 in my rankings.
Cole Kmet: Kmet’s been plenty involved in this Chicago offense recently and Robinson being out should open up even more targets. He’s only 24% rostered in Yahoo leagues currently.
Marcus Johnson: Johnson’s starting to see his stock rise here recently and this is a very solid matchup against Houston. He’s a dart-throw FLEX play, but he can be picked up and played if you’re in a pinch.
Jamal Agnew: Agnew’s been getting the job done for fantasy recently and he’s providing decent FLEX value week after week. He’s available in the vast majority of leagues.
5 Receiver/Cornerback Matchups to Watch
Jaylen Waddle/Michael Carter: No, not the RB for the Jets…Waddle will line up against the other Carter for New York and that’s an incredibly favorable matchup. We could see a big game here from Waddle.
