Terrible Fantasy Advice: Week 11

Ezekiel Elliott, Rookie of the Year? Offensive Player of the Year? Most Valuable Player? Everyone thought the rookie from Ohio State was going to be good, but this good?

Carson Wentz and that Eagles defense got a big win against the Falcons.

The Vikings lost again, but hey, at least they didn’t lose by 22 to the Tennessee Titans.

This is the second time this year the Rams won without scoring a touchdown.

New England Patriots didn’t learn anything from their Super Bowl victory two years ago … RUN ON THE ONE-YARD LINE.

Week 11, let’s go.


Marcus Mariota threw for 295 yards and four touchdowns against the Packers (no that is not a typo). Plus, he didn’t commit any turnovers. That comes out to be 28.6 points.

Big Ben looked to be back in business in the Steel City. He threw for 408, 3 touchdowns and faces the Browns this week.

Aaron Rodgers and the Pack may have lost but he continues to light up the stat sheet, throwing for 371 yards and three touchdowns.

Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, Andy Dalton and Carson Palmer all scored under 15 points last week. Something that doesn’t happen too often, Colin Kaepernick doubled Tom Brady and Matt Ryan’s fantasy totals last week.

If you need a quarterback for this week: Tyrod Taylor, Kirk Cousins and Joe Flacco are all good options.

Running backs

I’m wondering when the NFL is going to allow the crop top back onto the field because Ezekiel Elliott is taking over this league right now. He is first in the league in rushing yards, and yards from scrimmage. He is second in the league in rushing attempts and rushing touchdowns. This kid is a monster, and the Dallas O-Line is very good.

Le’Veon Bell had a nice game scoring two touchdowns. LeGarrette Blount scored three touchdowns in their loss to the Seahawks, which maybe should’ve been four touchdowns.

Demarco Murray is the first non-quarterback to rush for a touchdown and throw a touchdown in the same game in 36 years.

David Johnson is matchup proof, which means you play him against any defense and he will give you consistency.

Looking for a running back? Rob Kelly, Rashad Jennings and James Starks could be a good fit.

Wide receivers

Allen Robinson is finally looking like that second round pick you thought he would be, catching nine passes for 107 yards and a touchdown.

Antonio Brown was doing Antonio Brown-like things, 14 receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown.

Stefon Diggs is really good in a PPR league, but not so much in a regular league. Just in catches alone he scored 13 points.

We have to give some respect and credit to Odell Beckham Jr. He is the fastest player to achieve 3,500 receiving yards (36 games). Doug Baldwin caught three touchdowns on Sunday night, and Jordy Nelson put up a 30-burger (PPR league).

Old-timer Larry Fitzgerald caught 12 balls for 133 yards. Last week it was very lackluster from the WR position but there was a complete turnaround this week. Just for players in my league, not on the waiver wire, 14 wide receivers scored over 20 points.

If you need a guy to score you some points: Donte Moncrief, Sterling Shepard and Rishard Matthews are all good additions.

Tight ends

Delanie Walker is having a fantastic year my friends. He caught nine passes for 124 yards and a touchdown equaling 27.4 points. I would say he continues that trend next week against a weak Colts secondary. Kyle Rudolph went for 70 yards and a touchdown. Antonio Gates went for 63 yards and a touchdown.

Other than that, Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Jordan Reed and Travis Kelce all scored less than 10 points. Don’t worry though, all of these guys face teams with records under .500 next week.

If you need a guy for your squad: Charles Clay, Cameron Brate and Vernon Davis are in position for a good week.
