Fantasy Football 3 IN/OUT week 11











-   Week 11 –

Each week, the FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT will not include players that are locks for your starting rosters, just the ones that are considered “fringe” starters and may be outside the TOP 10 at each position.

They are the ones that you may have on the bench or ones that you can find on the waiver wire. Either way, they are the players we think will have a big game for you this week and players that have a tough row to hoe. They are the ones you want to start and players you need to bench. This week we will talk about 6 players that will help or hurt your team in week 11, and a bonus DST that you can plug and play.  As always, it’s followed by a great recipe, this time it’s Whiskey Smoked Prime Rib.


As we prepare for Week 11, the fantasy football playoffs loom on the horizon. Every move made from here on out is magnified as losing is no longer an option for many fantasy squads. Only two teams are off this week (Dallas and the Rams), so it’s time to start loading up your bench with high-upside options for the playoff push.


Lets get to it.

For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions, over 20 from your QB, more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense. This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

Here are the basic league settings that we are basing our predictions on…


QB,2WR,2RB,TE,FLEX (w/r/t), K, DST
TDs=6 pts0 pts allowed=10
passing=25 yds/pt2-6=7
receiving=10 yds/pt7-13=4
rushing=10 yds/pt14-20=1
reception=1 pt21-27=0
blocked kick=5
Return Yds=50 yds/pt





Andre Brown vs GB

from fftoolbox:
The long awaited return of Andre Brown went much better than could have been expected. The Giants were hoping to slowly ease him back into action, but after an early game fumble by Peyton Hillis it was off to the races for Brown. Brown rushed the ball 30 times for 115 yards and scored his first touchdown of the season. He also had one catch for four yards. Brown should have no issues getting 20 plus touches, as well as being the goal line back. He makes for a very good RB2 and/or flex start this week. Make sure to get him in your lineup.
from fantasysharks:
Seeing his first game action since August, Brown was ‘eased’ into the offense to the tune of 30 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown. He’s the undisputed No. 1 running back for the Giants and will be facing a Green Bay defense that just allowed Philadelphia running backs LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown 166 yards on the ground.
from Fantasy Sports LR:
Provided he’s healed up from his 30 carry outing 20 more isn’t out of reach, against a Packers D that has given up 54.3 fantasy points to RB1s over the last three games.
from rotoworld:
Coach Tom Coughlin had high praise for Andre Brown following Sunday’s win over the Raiders. Brown was expected to be eased back into the mix as he made his first appearance since re-fracturing his leg in the preseason. Instead, he touched the ball 31 times while making Peyton Hillis look like the washed up dinosaur he is. “Give Jerry [Reese] credit thinking he would be back and he is back in the same season, with a break in the last preseason game, so we’re real happy,” Coughlin said. “There’s no question. I don’t think you can say enough about him, from one game coming back.” Brown is clearly entrenched as the feature back heading into a Week 11 game against the Packers. He’s a candidate for 20+ touches plus goal-line work again.


FANFOOD Says: Start him over RBs like Giovani Bernard, Pierre Thomas and Chris Johnson.



Alshon Jeffery vs BAL

from fantasysharks:
Jeffery has gone for more than 100 yards in four of his last six games, including a 218-yard outburst back in Week 5. The Ravens cannot account for both Jeffery and fellow wide receiver Brandon Marshall so look for another big game from Jeffery. Only a lack of touchdowns (three for the season) keeps Jeffery from ascending to ‘Stud’ status.
from Fantasy Football Maniax:
Jeffery has had a breakout year in 2013 and looks to continue his solid season against the Ravens, who are ranked 20th against fantasy receivers over the last five weeks.
from rotoworld:
Alshon Jeffery caught nine passes for 114 yards in Week 10 against the Lions. Jeffery was targeted a game-high 18 times, six more looks than Brandon Marshall saw from Jay Cutler and Josh McCown. Jeffery could have had a bigger day, but he was stripped of a 14-yard touchdown when officials deemed he bobbled the ball out of bounds. It was Jeffery’s fourth 100-yard game of the season, with two of them coming against Detroit. He’s a legitimate WR2.


FANFOOD Says: Start him over WRs like Jordy Nelson, Josh Gordon and Mike Wallace.



DeAndre Hopkins vs OAK

from fantasy sharks:
Hopkins has put up 12 receptions for 199 yards and a touchdown since Case Keenum has taken over at quarterback. He’s been targeted 21 times and should find a lot of room against a Raiders secondary that will be keying on Andre Johnson. Oakland has given up 653 yards and six touchdowns to wide receivers over the past three games. Start the rookie!
from Fantasy Sports LR:
11 targets from Keenum as Cardinals put extra bodies on Johnson. If that continues, we should see plenty of targets
from Fantasy Football Maniax:
I think Hopkins could be an excellent play this week against a Raiders secondary that has struggled to stop receivers this season.
from Funston | Yahoo! Sports:
Timing seems right for big day from Hopkins as AJ likely to draw OAK focus
from rotoworld:
DeAndre Hopkins caught six balls for 69 yards in the Texans’ Week 10 loss to the Cardinals. He led the team in catches and yards. Hopkins’ biggest play came on a first-quarter deflection for a gain of 22. The first-round pick lacks elite separation skills, but has settled in as a low-upside complement to Andre Johnson. Hopkins has at least 54 yards in each of Case Keenum’s three starts. Hopkins will be a low-end WR3 when the Texans face the Raiders in Week 11.


FANFOOD Says: Start him over WRs such as Stevie Johnson, Harry Douglas and even Marques Colston.








Steven Jackson@ TB

from fftoolbox:
The Falcons’ big off-season acquisition has struggled mightly this season, getting off to a terrible start — partially due to injuries and a poor offensive line. Jackson touched the ball 12 times in Week 10, gaining just 20 yards on the ground and through the air. The former St. Louis Ram has scored just one touchdown on the season, leaving the Falcons and fantasy owners disappointed. Jackson and the Falcons travel to Tampa Bay in Week 11 to take on the Buccaneers and their 13th ranked rush defense. Despite having a decent matchup, fantasy owners can not trust Jackson to produce starter worthy numbers. Leave him on your bench this week.
from walterfootball:
Is this Steven Jackson or a zombie from the Walking Dead? It’s crazy how sluggish he looks.
from Fantasy Football Maniax:
Jackson has a nice matchup this week, but he is too boom / bust to be counted on as anything more than a flex option.
from FFLockerRoom:
After missing most of the first half of the season, Jackson hasn’t done much beyond the 76 all-purpose yards that he put together in Week 9 against Carolina. Tampa Bay is just as stingy so don’t expect much more than that. In fact they have only given up 1 rushing touchdown all season.


FANFOOD Says: Sit him in favor of RBs to the tune of Chris Ivory, Ryan Mathews and Shane Vereen.



Roddy White @ TB

from fftoolbox:
Coming back from injuries, Roddy White has caught just one pass for 20 yards since Week 5. White’s fantasy owners can be encouraged by the amount of playing time he received in Week 10, playing on 55 of the Falcons’ 58 offensive snaps. While this is encouraing for White, this week’s matchup with Darrelle Revis and the Buccaneers should keep the former Pro Bowler on fantasy benches. Revis has been playing more man to man coverage as of late, shadowing Mike Wallace for pretty much the entire game against the Dolphins in Week 10. Revis should be able to handle White, who still may not be at 100 percent this week. Fantasy owners should strongly consider keeping White on their benches this week.
from walterfootball:
Roddy White did nothing in his return last week. He can’t be trusted.
from Funston | Yahoo! Sports:
Snaps remain curbed because of ankle, and Revis Island on tap
from rotoprofessor:
The talk is that White is finally healthy, but this is going to be a tough week to prove it. While the Seattle defense has been torched by the run recently, they are allowing just 179.8 passing yards per game and 9 TD (and just 5 of those have gone to wide receivers). In shallower formats this definitely isn’t the week to toy around with him, especially since you’ve been going with an alternate plan all season long. He’s a risky WR3, but more of a desperation play. Week 11 will likely be a much different story, however.


FANFOOD Says: Sit him in favor of WRs like the aforementioned DeAndre Hopkins, or even Brian Hartline and/or Andre Roberts.



Stevie Johnson vs NYJ

from fantasysharks:
Dealing with a groin injury which could force him to sit out this week. If he can play, he likely would not be his usual self, so may be best to play it safe and look elsewhere this week until he heals.
from walterfootball:
Stevie Johnson was pessimistic about playing in this game.
from rotoworld:
Stevie Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle) both missed Wednesday’s practice. Johnson has battled groin and hip issues for much of this season and has admitted he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to suit up against the Jets Sunday. With the bye looming in Week 12, it would make sense for both Johnson and Woods to rest up.


FANFOOD Says: Sit him in favor of ANY WR as he may not even suit up, and if his does can not be trusted.






FANFOOD Streaming Defense of the Week



 vs JAX


from Fantasy Knuckleheads:
The Arizona Cardinals defense is currently owned in just 31% of all ESPN leagues, although this unit’s credentials should be generating more respect among fantasy owners. They now rank 13th in total defense, and are 12th in scoring defense. Arizona has been particularly stout against the run, with a ranking of third in that category. They have surrendered just 87 rushing YPG this season, have allowed only three TDs, and they just limited Houston’s RBs to 63 yards in Week 10. The Cardinals have also produced 20 takeaways, which is the NFL’s fourth highest total, are tied for fifth with 12 INTs, and have sacked opposing QBs 26 times. Plus, they now have the opportunity to line up against the NFL’s most feeble attack, as Jacksonville currently ranks dead last in total offense and scoring offense, and they’re just 31st in rushing. Anyone who would prefer streaming a defense this week should secure this very capable group.
from sbnation:
Anyone who regularly checks back to see top streaming options among team defenses has noticed a common theme — pick the defense playing opposite the Jaguars. Though the Jaguars played their most complete game of the season last week versus the Tennessee Titans, they will have an even more daunting task against an underrated Arizona Cardinals defense that will make Chad Henne and company air it out. The Cardinals have been stout up front, allowing just 87 rushing yards per game and notching 26 sacks on the season. Their secondary has given up a few big plays, but presents the threat of making a few of its own after picking off 12 passes on the year. They’ll dare Henne to throw, and versus a Jaguars team that has allowed the fourth-most sacks in the league, the Cardinals could be in store for a few takeaways.
from thefakefootball:
Chad Henne and company still managed to hand eight fantasy points to the Tennessee defense last week. The Titans, despite pulling off the incredible feat of allowing the Jags toUSA TODAY Sports-Archive put up 29 points, were still a top-12 Week 10 defense.The Cardinals’ defense has been borderline elite through swaths of 2013, not that that matters against Jacksonville. Arizona’s top-10 pass coverage should wreak havoc on the Jaguars’ lifeless air attack. Even if Henne keeps the turnovers to a minimum, the Cards will prove their worth with something around a handful of sacks. Arizona is available in about 18 percent of leagues.


FANFOOD Says: Start over other squads such as the Bengals, Niners and even the Chiefs.
