Week 11 Fantasy Football Burning Questions
If you want your fantasy football question featured, tag me on Twitter @ImThatSupi.
Is Jaylen Warren a Legit Pickup for the Rest of the Season?
In an unexpected move, Jaylen Warren was named the starter last week and saw a season-high 33 snaps. Here’s the thing: Najee Harris also saw 33 snaps.
Warren is an incredible runner, as he’s fourth among running backs in yards created per touch. He has been hovering with a 40% snap share throughout the season, but with the Steelers finding success with this committee, I don’t see either Harris or Warren being a workhorse.
If you need a running back, then Harris is an option, and you hope he can have a big run and touchdown like last week, but I wouldn’t be confident in high-end weekly production.
Can Noah Brown Keep This Trend Going?
We need to realize that CJ Stroud has entered the top-tier territory. With that, his receivers are getting the rub. Tank Dell and Nico Collins are averaging over 14 points per reception (PPR) points per game. With Collins missing last week, Noah Brown saw a big increase in targets and has 13 catches for 325 yards in the last two games.
I’d be monitoring Collins throughout the week because if he misses more time, then I’m definitely plugging him into my lineup. With Collins on the field, I might be hesitant.
Is it Over for Calvin Ridley?
Remember Week 1 when Ridley had a monster game, and we assumed he was a lock for a top-10 finish? Simpler times. The offense isn’t as good as we thought it would be, and Trevor Lawrence has regressed since his breakout 2022 season.
Since Week 2, Ridley is WR55, and it seems like Lawrence doesn’t have a great connection with him, as Ridley is 45th in target quality rating and 78th in catchable target rate.
What Are Your Projections for Keaton Mitchell?
Although, he’s not a drop after what John Harbaugh had to say about his usage:
“Looking back on it, would we have wanted him out there more? Yeah, and I think that will factor into this gameplan.”
He could overtake Hill, but I believe Edwards will get the short-yardage and goal-line work. If he can start getting more of the carries between the 20s, I like him as a low-end RB2.
What Do You Make of Tyler Conklin‘s Most Recent Production?
We are seeing some more emerging tight ends. Dalton Kincaid is the obvious one, and Trey McBride is another, but we must look at Conklin. He’s put up two great performances and has 13 targets in that time, but you wish he would find the end zone.
The Jets’ offensive line is bad, as they allow the most quarterback pressure this year. This means Zach Wilson will look for the easiest target, and with Conklin lining up in the slot more recently and running only 1.3 yards per route, he’s Wilson’s easiest target to hit.
Should I Seriously Consider Picking up Ty Chandler?
At one point, the Vikings were the heaviest passing team in the NFL. Now, the entire plan has changed with Joshua Dobbs as the quarterback, and they’ve become more balanced since.
Alexander Mattison was slated to be the featured back this year, but it hasn’t worked out, so they brought in Cam Akers. However, after the season-ending injury, it was back to square one. They decided to give the ball to Chandler last week and ran for a career-high 15 carries for 45 yards.
If he continues to get a bulk of the carries, he has a tremendous remaining schedule. Four of his final seven matchups are against the bottom 10 defenses in points allowed to the running back.
