by Dylan Clemons
2023 Fantasy Football Start-Sit

Welcome Fantasy nerds! It is that time again to start setting your lineups for the week, and I'm here to help with the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 11 Start/Sit article.

In the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 11 Start/Sit article, I will be giving you a start and a sit at each position. I'll be here every week trying to help by giving you a few deeper guys to start, and a few guys who the consensus believes should be in your lineup that week, but whom I disagree with.

With it being Week 11 you should have a pretty good idea of how your season is looking and if playoffs are in sight. My goal is to help make sure you finish strong in the regular season and get you into the playoffs.

On the F6P Hour, Joe and A.J. discuss some of the strategies you can take to help your team following the recent injuries and more.

We have four teams on bye week including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Do bear in mind: if you want custom or point-of-need advice on who to start/sit in your specific lineups, grab a Membership, and come chat with us on Discord. All our analysts are always happy to talk!

Start

Russell Wilson, QB, Denver Broncos (ECR QB14)

I get it, you probably read Russell Wilson's name and rolled your eyes, I do not blame you. He has been downright bad for most of the season. Not helping is the Broncos are going to be without wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.  Also, Wilson has only finished as a QB1 in one week this season.

So why start him?

He has also only thrown for multiple touchdowns in a game one time this season. Who was that against? Well, the Denver Broncos just so happen to play that team once again this week.

The Matchup

The Broncos and the Raiders matchup this weekend for the second time this season.

The first time these two teams met up was in Week 4 and the Raiders won that matchup. However, that was Wilson's best game this season, as he finished as QB3 that week scoring 26.5 fantasy points.

This Raiders team is in shambles right now as they sit at 2-8, and their defense is not good either. The Raiders have also allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks as at 22.6 points per game.

Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington Commanders (ECR RB22)

Have we ever had a player in fantasy football the consensus has fluctuated on this much during a single season as we have about Antonio Gibson? Antonio Gibson has made his way back to start territory every single week with what he has done in his last five games.

In those five games, Gibson has finished no worse than RB28 in any week and he has finished as a top-16 RB three times during that span. You should be able to plug him into your RB2 spot and be happy about that.

The Matchup

This matchup for the Commanders backfield couldn't get any better than playing the Houston Texans. The Texans have allowed the most fantasy points per game to the running back position this season. Both of the Commanders running backs can be started this week in a juicy matchup, as I can see both Gibson and Brian Robinson finding the endzone Sunday.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Cleveland Browns (ECR WR35)

Donovan Peoples-Jones has quietly put together a solid last six games.

During that span, he has finished as a Top-36 wideout in four of those games. He is also WR36 and has had over 70 yards in each of his last four games. Peoples-Jones has done that without catching a touchdown all season.

Jacoby Brissett will still be throwing passes for at least the next two weeks with Deshaun Watson due back from suspension after that. But we are ok with that with what we have seen these past six games.

The Matchup

The matchup for the Browns and their receiving group isn't a great one against the Buffalo Bills. They are allowing 26.6 fantasy points a game which is 14th best in the NFL. But we have seen the past two weeks, with a banged-up secondary the Bills' defense is vulnerable.

Knowing that, Donovan Peoples-Jones is a WR3 moving forward and has no problem putting him in my lineups this week.

Foster Moreau, TE, Las Vegas Raiders (ECR TE12)

Embed from Getty Images
With Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow both being on IR Foster Moreau needs to be in your lineup.

Last week Moreau saw four targets which is the least amount of targets in his last four games. Despite that, Moreau scored the most fantasy points he had all season because he found the end zone. He was due for a touchdown.

With the way the tight end landscape is right now, you will be happy take the five or six targets a game, and hope he finds the end zone.

The Matchup

We talked about this matchup above, but the Raiders are taking on the Denver Broncos. The Broncos are about middle of the road to tight ends allowing them to score 9.8 fantasy points per game. In week four Derek Carr targeted Darren Waller five times, but he wasn't productive with those targets. I expect Moreau to have a solid game this week.

Sit

Kirk Cousins, QB, Minnesota Vikings (ECR QB10)

Embed from Getty Images
The Vikings are the surprise team of the NFL as they currently sit at 8-1 after a huge win against the Buffalo Bills.

Kirk Cousins is a big reason for that success, as he is having a solid season like we all thought he would. He is currently QB10 on a points-per-game basis in all of Fantasy Football and has finished as a QB1 in 5-of-9 games this season.

That said, I do not like his chances of doing that in this matchup.

The Matchup

The matchup for the Vikings is another tough one at home against the Dallas Cowboys who are coming off a tough road loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Cowboys are strong against opposing quarterbacks allowing the seventh fewest points to the position.

I would start Russell Wilson and Marcus Mariota over Kirky this week, and they are both ranked after him.

D'Onta Foreman, RB, Carolina Panthers (ECR RB20)

Embed from Getty Images
D'Onta Foreman is an awesome story and I am glad he is getting another chance in the NFL. He is definitely making the most of it.

Since Christian McCaffrey was traded to the 49ers, Foreman is RB13 on a points-per-game basis averaging 17.4 half-PPR fantasy points. Unfortunately for Foreman and his managers, I feel he is very game-script dependent.

In the three games the Panthers kept the game close he finished as no lower than RB13. However, in the game they got blown out, he finished as RB42 and only saw seven carries.

The Matchup

In this matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, I feel this game has blowout written all over it. The Ravens need this win to stay on top of the AFC North Division, so I can see them just dominating.

The Ravens also allow the eighth fewest fantasy points to running backs as well so this does not bode well for Foreman and his owners.

Diontae Johnson, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers (ECR WR25)

Embed from Getty Images
What a nightmare season it has been for the Steelers top wide receiver Diontae Johnson. He has yet to have over 100 yards receiving in any game thus far this season.

The target volume is there as he has seen 81 through the first nine games. He is also 10th in expected fantasy points per Denny Carter, which is just crazy because I do not want to start him.

How is he still ranked as a borderline WR2 when he hasn't finished better than WR29 in any week this season?

The Matchup

The Matchup in this one for the Steelers is a tough one as well, against their division rival Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals allow the eighth-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. These two teams matched up in Week 1 and Johnson finished that week as WR40 scoring nine points that week. I am starting his teammate George Pickens over Johnson this week, and the rest of the season.

Tyler Higbee, TE, Los Angeles Rams (ECR TE8)

Embed from Getty Images
Tyler Higbee was a very solid tight end play at the beginning of the season. Through the first five weeks of the season, Higbee finished as a top-12 tight end in four of those games.

However, since then he has finished as TE51, TE33, and TE55. Last week he had a solid week with the backup quarterback John Wofford.

This offense was awful with Cooper Kupp on the field, and I can't imagine what it will look like now with him injured, which will limit red zone opportunities for Higbee.

The Matchup

The matchup for Tyler Higbee really couldn't get worse as he is playing the Saints this week. They have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season.

There is really no reason you should be starting Higbee this week. Why he is ranked within the top eight, I really do not get it. I would start Cole Kmet, Foster Moreau, and Kyle Pitts over Higbee, and they are all ranked below him. Hard pass on Higbee this week.

 


Thanks for reading the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 11 Start/Sit and good luck on your playoff push!
