2022 Fantasy Football Week 11 Vampire League Starters

2022 Fantasy Football Week 11 Vampire League Starters

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 11 Vampire League Starters article! 

I’m steamrolling opponents like I’m some ancient vampire that traditional ways can’t take out. My opponents must cut my heart into four parts to defeat me like Lilith from Bordello of Blood. 

Since I was victorious, I had a few players to choose from to add to my team. It would have been a no-brainer decision to snag Cooper Kupp, but I had to pivot my decision with the recent news of his ankle surgery. I debated between Gabe DavisMichael Pittman, and George Kittle. Gabe Davis ended up being my winner; he’ll go great along with Justin Jefferson until Ja’Marr Chase returns to my lineup. Usually, when I have a chance at a top tight end, I will take them immediately, but I’m going to risk riding with Cole Kmet until I can snag Travis Kelce.

Enough of my self-congratulations; I hope you other vampires were successful in Week 10; if not, let’s change your luck in Week 11. Let’s add some great players to your team as you fight toward the playoffs.

Quarterback

Daniel Jones, New York Giants

I’m going to start off by saying that if you have Justin Fields on your team, you should start him against the Falcons. I was going to suggest starting Fields in Week 11, but that would be three weeks in a row for Fields. So, I’m going to switch things up and recommend Daniel Jones as a potential starter if you don’t have Fields.

Jones is averaging 177.3 passing yards, 43 rushing yards, 0.9 passing touchdowns, and 0.3 rushing touchdowns per game. Nothing outrageous but decent enough with the right matchup, and Jones has the best matchup against the Lions in Week 11.

The Lions allow the most fantasy points to quarterbacks, allowing 23 fantasy points, 266.1 passing yards, and 1.6 touchdowns per game. The Lions allow the second-most rushing yards to quarterbacks, which is excellent news for Jones, one of the better rushing quarterbacks in the NFL.

The last time Jones faced off against the Lions, he had a massive week with 322 yards and four touchdowns. Jones has the potential to have a QB1 performance in Week 11.

Running Backs

Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs

Pacheco had a decent game last week with 82 rushing yards, but he hasn’t really been that effective in the Chiefs’ offense. But one thing is clear about Kansas City’s rushing offense: they don’t want Clyde Edwards-Helaire touching the ball anymore, which means Pacheco will be given every opportunity to secure the job. Even though Pacheco hasn’t had many touches, he does have a remarkable 60.9 yards-after-contact rate. With the right matchup, Pacheco could muscle his way to fantasy stardom.

In Week 11, Pacheco has a great matchup against the Chargers to prove he can be the primary rusher for Andy Ried. The Chargers allow 29.7 fantasy points, 133.3 yards, and 1.1 touchdowns per game to running backs.

Kenyan Drake, Baltimore Ravens

Drake has been fantastic in his past two games, averaging 77.5 yards and one touchdown. It looks like Drake will get the bulk of the carries in Week 11 since Gus Edwards is returning from injury. Plus, it appears that Edwards will have limited touches if he does play in Week 11.

Don’t be surprised if Drake continues to be the guy even when Gus Bus fully returns. Drake has a tremendous 76.7 positive run rate. He has the best matchup in Week 11 against the Panthers to show off his positive run rate, plus provide vampires with fantasy gold.

The Panthers allow 25.9 fantasy points, 113.1 yards, and 0.9 touchdowns per game to running backs.

Wide Receivers

Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals

Boyd has been on a tear in recent weeks, averaging 6.5 targets, 75.8 yards, and 0.5 touchdowns in his last four weeks. Not to mention, Boyd has been putting up tremendous advanced stat lines as well, with 22.1 percent Team Air Yards and 54.9 Air Yards per game. 

Boyd has a fantastic matchup against their arch-rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers allow the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers, allowing 42.5 fantasy points, 199.1 yards, and 1.4 touchdowns per game to WRs.

Josh Palmer, Los Angeles Chargers

Palmer has been great as the primary wideout for the Chargers with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams out of the lineup. He is averaging 10 targets and 69 yards in his last three games as the Chargers leading weapon. Even when Allen and Williams were on the field, Palmer had a 15.7 target share and 60.6 air yards per game rate for the season. Those advanced stats should have vampires licking their lips at Palmers’ matchup against the Chiefs.

The Chiefs allow 38.3 fantasy points, 165.7 yards, and 1.4 touchdowns per game to wide receivers. Since both the Chiefs and Chargers secondary have struggled at stopping passing games, expect this game to be a shootout with tons of scoring opportunities.

Tight End

Greg Dulcich, Denver Broncos

Dulcich has been a savior for many fantasy players this year. He is averaging 5.3 targets, 48.3 yards, and 14.8 yards-per-reception for his short career. His advanced stats are best among fellow tight ends, 67.8 Air Yards per game, 24.1 targeted-on-route percentage, and 12.9 averaged depth-of-target. 

In Week 11, Dulcich has a fantastic matchup against the Raiders, who allow 14.6 fantasy points, 50.7 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns per game to TEs. It bodes well for Dulcich that the Raiders allow the second-most targets in the red zone to tight ends.

Flex

Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers

This suggestion might be retroactive, but Watson has finally broken out. If the Packers were competent, they would use Watson more often. In Week 10, it was the first time Watson was on the field for more than 80 percent of the Packers’ snaps, and their offense looked great, and they won the game. So, maybe give that kid the ball.

Watson has a great matchup against the Titans to solidify his role as the new Davante Adams in this offense. The Titans allow 38.5 fantasy points, 181.7 yards, and 1.1 touchdowns per game to wide receivers this year.

Defense/Special Teams

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals are facing off against the Saints in Week 11, and the good news for everyone is that the Saints are sticking with Andy Dalton at quarterback. Dalton has been a turnover machine; he has a turnover in three of his last five games. 

The Saints offense will be catnip for the Bengals (get it? Because Bengals are cats) since they allow defenses to average 9.1 fantasy points per week. So far this season, the Saints have allowed 21 sacks, 12 interceptions, seven fumbles, and four defensive touchdowns.
