2020 Fantasy Football Week 11 Trends

on

Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 11 Trends!

It was a rough start to some of your fantasy weekends learning Joe Mixon was going to IR with a foot injury. Then during the game for the Cincinnati Bengals, Joe Burrow went down with an awkward leg injury. The team and Burrow fear that he tore his ACL and will be done for the season.

It’s not fun seeing people get injured so at least we had some entertaining games this week to cheer us up! The Tennessee Titans defeated the Baltimore Ravens in overtime with a 29-yard touchdown run by Derrick Henry. Then Rodrigo Blankenship hit a 39-yard field goal in overtime to send the Colts to a victory over the Packers.

Let’s jump into the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 Trends to see what I found!

1. Diontae Johnson is the WR1 for Big Ben.

At the beginning of the season, it looked like Diontae Johnson would be the WR1 in this offense. But injuries have hampered him and have caused him to not finish out three games this year. It also caused him to not start a game this year as well. With that being said, he still averages the most targets on the team with nine a game.

He had somewhat of a breakout game this week against the Jaguars to separate himself from the pack. Johnson saw a season-high 16 targets and caught a season-high 12 receptions. He was five yards off of matching his season-high in receiving yards with 111 yards on the day. Even with Juju Smith-Schuster getting hot lately, I still trust Diontae Johnson down the stretch being Big Ben’s WR1.

2. J.K. Dobbins gets the majority of the touches.

Even in a tough loss against the Tennessee Titans in overtime, J.K. Dobbins shined in the Ravens backfield. With Mark Ingram coming back from injuries it looked grim for this backfield. This week John Harbaugh decided to give Dobbins the majority of the workload. We all hope this is a foreshadowing for the coming weeks for Dobbins.

J.K. Dobbins was on the field for a game-high 62% of the snaps for the offense. He saw 15 carries which turned into 70 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown. Meanwhile, Gus Edwards only saw 21% of the snap share, and Mark Ingram only saw a season-low 9% of the snaps. Dobbins has by far looked like the most talented back for the Ravens.

3. Taysom Hill shows a high floor as the Saints QB.

With Drew Brees going down for multiple weeks with broken ribs the Saints announced Taysom Hill as their starter. We all thought Jameis Winston would be named the starter at the beginning of the week. Well, that’s the NFL for you: just when you thought you knew something they will change it on you. But Hill came out and balled out to get the victory against the Falcons.

He completed 18/23 for 233 passing yards and was not afraid to sling to ball around to Michael Thomas. Thomas was his favorite option in the offense with nine receptions for 104 receiving yards. Hill showed out today with his legs, rushing 10 times for 51 yards and two rushing touchdowns. With his legs being his best attribute to his game he should have a high floor as a QB in Brees’ absence.

4. Tua looks for Devante Parker in trouble.

In the past three games, Devante Parker has seen seven-plus targets each time from Tua Tagovailoa. This week in all came together with Parker catching six of his nine targets for 61 yards and a touchdown. He seems to be the guy that Tua keeps targeting in the red zone when in trouble.

Parker has two great matchups in the coming weeks that could prove to be more of a breakout opportunity. He faces the New York Jets next week and the Cincinnati Bengals the week after. Even though Tagovailoa was benched at the end of game, he is expected to start in Week 12. I look forward to seeing Tua look in Parker’s direction in the next couple of weeks to help his fantasy value.

Come back next week at the same time and we will build off of the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 11 Trends!
