With that out of the way, let's get this started and talk about 2021 Fantasy Football Week 11 Trade Targets.

I cover buy-low, buy-high targets, and sell-high players.

Buy Low Targets

T.J. Hockenson, TE, Detroit Lions

Week 10 was absolutely one of the worst weeks for premier tight ends. T.J. Hockenson was the worst of them all, goose egging Fantasy managers with his one target for zero receptions.

I understand that the Detroit Lions are a unique level of terribleness, and you don't want a future goose egg. Well, I here to tell you that the tight end position will do that to you from time to time.

Even the most talented tight-end will put up dud weeks. Travis Kelce has done it twice this season, Darren Waller just did it and Mike Gesicki also laid an egg.

The position is bound to do that. Here is a reminder of Hockenson's impact. From Week 1 to Week 9, Hockenson was tied for the second-most targets at the position. This while missing a game due to bye week.

Don't overthink it and try to buy low if possible.

Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens

The Miami Dolphins beating the Baltimore Ravens was by far one of the weirdest outcomes on Thursday Night Football. Second to the offensive lineman illegal screen pass touchdown.

That being said, the three leading Baltimore receivers all had six catches. With rookie Rashod Bateman leading in yardage and Mark Andrews leading in points. On the other hand, Marquise Brown led the team in targets once again with a total of 13 targets. That was five more targets than both Bateman and Andrews.

Brown has only had three games that have gone under 10 points in PPR formats, with six games going for 19 points or more points.

I know that the Bateman hype is hard to ignore, but remember that Brown has had double-digit targets in three out of four games with Bateman.

Calvin Ridley, WR, Atlanta Falcons

I would like to start off by saying that we at Fantasy Six Pack support any athlete who steps away from a sport to take care of their mental well-being.

With that being said, let's talk about Ridley's possible return in the upcoming weeks. Calvin Ridley has been out since Week 8, but his first available return date is in Week 12 on November 28th - Monday Night Football against the Jacksonville Jaguars. If he returns that week, his schedule from this point on will be one of the easiest, with the only drawback being Buffalo Bills at Week 17.

Before Ridley's absence, he was averaging 10 or more targets per game. I expect the trend to continue upon his return. We should see his stat-line being similar to his first four weeks average.

Ridley is a risky buy due to the nature of his current situation. Still, the cost might not be too much, and the current Ridley manager is probably in dire straits.

Buy High Targets

AJ Dillon, RB, Green Bay Packers

Aaron Jones has suffered an MCL sprain and will be out for an unknown amount of time. I wouldn't be surprised if Aaron Jones doesn't return until the NFL playoffs.

The Green Bay Packers are currently leading their division by multiple games with no real contenders. AJ Dillon may possibly hold the job until the end of the regular season.

He isn't as versatile as Jones, but he will have the majority of the workload to himself. Dillon will be a high-end RB2 with an upside until further notice.

Hunter Renfrow, WR, Las Vegas Raiders

One of the biggest Fantasy steals of the season is Hunter Renfrow, the safety blanket. Over the last three games, Renfrow has averaged seven receptions for 51 yards a game with two touchdowns.

Renfrow has had five catches every game through the season except one. He is a solid FLEX play until further notice in all PPR formats.

Don't expect high yardage from Renfrow, but his Fantasy outlook has looked better since the Ruggs issue. If you're desperate at wide receiver and don't want to pay a lot, I think Renfrow is the guy to target.

Sell High Players

Elijah Moore, WR, New York Jets

With Mike White at the helm, Elijah Moore has come to life, even if it required garbage time to do so. With Zach Wilson returning, I want to believe that Moore's success will continue. However, I find it highly unlikely, and I am jumping ship and selling off Moore.

As of right now, I am not impressed with Wilson and he will likely bring the Jets "offense production" down.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys played perfect football and routed the Atlanta Falcons 43-3. Ezekiel Elliott participated in this with two goal line touchdowns.

Outside of the touchdowns, Elliott's stat-line was rather pedestrian, totaling 56 scrimmage yards.

I believe Elliott can continue to have RB1 games, but I would be looking to sell high while I could. Going for more consistent running backs on teams where the offensive is built around them.

There is no sign at all Ridley will come back, he likely won’t. Aaron Jones is said to miss 1-2 weeks, not an ‘unknown amount of time’. This article is poorly researched and gives bad advice

You’re correct in that Ridley has very little sign of return but his eligibility to return is for the Jacksonville game. If you’re waiting for news to break on his return then you will be buying high at that point. This is why I consider it a buy low and a risky buy overall.

As for Aaron Jones, the article was created/posted before his news. I also still expect Aaron Jones to have his playing time cut bit a back for the reasons I listed already. Injury history and Greenbay setting itself apart from division rivals.
