on

Welcome back Fantasy friends and foes to your weekly Fantasy Six Pack 2019 Fantasy Football Week 11 Start-Sit.

We are entering crunch time for Fantasy owners. Fantasy playoffs are on the horizon with each lineup and roster decision you make could determine if you make the playoffs or start entering even more daily contests.

Week 11 presents the luxury of good matchups this week. Do the Ravens continue their hot streak against the Houston Texans? Will the Mami Dolphins win their third game of the season against the Buffalo Bills? Can the New England Patriots get revenge against the Philadelphia Eagles this week?

I might not know the answers to those questions but I can help you win your matchup this week as I present to you with 2019 Fantasy Football Week 11 Start-Sit.

2019 Fantasy Football Week 11 Start-Sit

You dominated your draft, now dominate your season with personalized team advice using the Fantasy Pros MyPlaybook tool.

Start

Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chargers had high expectations for this season. However, injuries have destroyed their roster. Both sides of the ball have been a disappointment. Even Philip Rivers has suffered a similar fate of decreased results.

Rivers has thrown ten interceptions in 10 games. He has only thrown 14 touchdowns, which equals a poor touchdown-to-interception ratio.

Rivers will take on a Chiefs defense at Mexico City, where the projected game total is 52.5. This contest is expected to be a Fantasy jackpot for Fantasy owners. The Chiefs’ defense is 13th-worst against quarterbacks, and Rivers will be forced to produce with volume opposite Patrick Mahomes. Garbage time counts for Fantasy owners, so get Rivers in your Week 11 lineups.

Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals vs. Oakland Raiders

Volume is critical in Fantasy. Joe Mixon received an astounding 32 touches for a season-best 151 yards from scrimmage last week against the Baltimore Ravens. The Raiders can not stop anyone on defense. They give up 6.1 yards allowed per play and have allowed a touchdown to a running back in five straight games.

Mixon and the Cincinnati Bengals have been a disappointment his season, but Mixon should see plenty of touches in his Week 11 matchup against the Oakland Raiders in a contest of teams with weak defenses.

Fantasy owners should see plenty of scoring in this matchup, which makes Mixon a safe play for Fantasy owners in Week 11.

Brian Hill, RB, Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers

Brian Hill is the next man up. Devonta Freeman has been ruled out for this week after sustaining a foot injury in last week’s surprise win over the New Orleans Saints. Ito Smith, the team’s second-leading rusher, was placed on injured reserve due to a neck injury and a concussion.

Hill was a top waiver add based on a high-volume play and obtaining a starting running back on waivers this deep into the season. Hill makes a great plug and play start against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11.

The Panthers allow the fifth-most points to the running back position and ranks last in yards allowed per carry (5.17). The former Wyoming Cowboy stepped in for Freeman last week and had 21 total touches for 71 yards and a touchdown. Hill has advanced to an RB2 this week, and Fantasy owners should not be hesitant to get Hill in their lineups.

Mohamed Sanu, WR, New England Patriots vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The New England Patriots made an impressive trade by obtaining wide receiver Mohamed Sanu from the Atlanta Falcons. Sanu averaged over 60 receptions in his last three seasons in Atlanta, and the Falcons decided to deal Sanu since they were going nowhere this season.

Sanu caught 10 of 14 targets for 81 yards and a score in the Week 9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He led the team in targets and has solidified his role as WR2 in this Patriots offense.

Sanu seems to have already established chemistry with Tom Brady and is now coming off a bye, which provided him extra time to learn the Patriots offense. This week, the Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles who allow the sixth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season.

The Patriots will attack the Eagles defense via the pass to avoid the Eagles’ run-stuffing defense. Having Sanu in your Week 11 lineups is a no-brainer.

Tyrell Williams, WR, Oakland Raiders vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Tyrell Williams is a prototypical boom or bust wide receiver. Williams scored a touchdown in five consecutive games to begin the season, then proceeded not to score in back to back contests.

Williams has an outstanding matchup this week against a Cincinnati Bengals defense that has allowed 286.3 passing yards per game over their last three games.

The Bengals are a defense in which Fantasy owners should start all of their offensive players against, and Williams should thrive in Week 11.

Gerald Everett. TE, Los Angeles Rams vs. Chicago Bears

Despite the Rams offense being complete trash lately, tight end Gerald Everett has produced three games of at least ten targets in his past five games.

Jared Goff will be facing extreme pressure all game and will look to get the ball out quick. I foresee a ton of dump passes to Everett in this matchup, especially since the Bears allow an average of 15.2 points per game to TE (sixth-most in the NFL).

Look for Everett to produce like a top-tier tight end this week.

Sit

Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams vs. Chicago Bears

The Los Angeles Rams offense is a shell of the offensive juggernaut of the past few seasons.

The offensive line is a disaster with only one lineman (LT Andrew Whitworth) remaining from the starting offensive line in Week 1. Goff crumbles under pressure, and the line has proven that it can not protect Goff or open up holes in the running game. Not a good combination to possess as the Rams head into their Week 11 matchup against the Chicago Bears.

The Bears are tied for second in the NFL with 50 sacks this season. The tenacious Chicago defensive front will be in the Rams backfield all game. Look for Goff to struggle all game, and there are plenty of other quarterbacks to get in your lineups this week.

Carlos Hyde, RB, Houston Texans vs. Baltimore Ravens

Carlos Hyde has rejuvenated his career in Houston as he is averaging a career-high 4.7 yards per carry.

Coming off a 160-yard rushing performance in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Hyde and the Texans take on the red-hot Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. The Ravens have allowed 18 or fewer rushing yards to opposing backs in three of their last four home games. On the season, the Ravens have allowed the eighth-fewest rushing yards per game (91.2).

Hyde only shines in favorable matchups and is no threat in the passing game. This matchup dictates to avoid Hyde this week.

David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers

Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury admitted that he benched Johnson in last week’s loss to the Buccaneers to keep replacement RB Kenyan Drake in a groove. Johnson has just six touches to Drake’s 16 against Tampa Bay. Johnson is hampered by an ankle injury that makes him hard to trust in your lineups.

Drake looks like the better back in Arizona and with a nightmare matchup against an angry San Francisco 49ers defense, who allow just 16.8 FPPG. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere to fill their RB slot in their Week 11 lineups.

DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills

After recommending DeVante Parker in Week 10, and the Dolphins wideout posting a modest 5-69-0 line, Parker should be on benches this week.

Parker has scored in three of his past five games, including a score in Week 7 against these Buffalo Bills. However, in that matchup, Parker did not draw the coverage of premier corner TreDavious White. Preston Williams was the unlucky soul who had to face off against White that week. Unfortunately, Williams tore his ACL and is done for the season.

The Buffalo Bills defense has allowed the third-fewest passing yards in the league while allowing only seven touchdown passes. Despite being Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s top option, Parker has yet to exceed 75 receiving yards in a game this season. Don’t bet on that being surpassed this week. Fantasy owners should avoid Parker in their Week 11 lineups.

O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints

O.J. Howard is one of the biggest Fantasy disappointments this season. There always seems to be plenty of hype surrounding Howard, and Fantasy owners projected Howard to catapult into the first tier of tight ends in 2019.

However, Howard has not caught more than four passes in a game season. And didn’t score until last week’s dream matchup against an Arizona secondary that was surrendering the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Being part of Bruce Arian’s offense has rendered Howard almost invisible in the Bucs offense and a gigantic Fantasy bust.



Every TE has had their best games against that Arizona Cardinals defense. In Week 11, Howard squares off against the New Orleans Saints, who have allowed ten points per game to TEs (11th fewest in the NFL). Please don’t be fooled by his production from last week.
