Here are our starts and sits for Week 11 of Fantasy Football.

 

Daniel Jones, QB, Giants: Start. Daniel Jones was on the brink of losing his job before the season started, and luckily the Giants kept him around. Jones has led them to a 7-2 record, yet his success has not been conventional. He is averaging under 180 passing yards a game; however, his rushing ability has been able to keep relevant in Fantasy. He faces the Lions, who have given up the most fantasy points against opposing quarterbacks, and Jones can take advantage of the matchup. We are starting Daniel Jones in Week 11. 

 

Andy Dalton, QB, Saints: Sit. The Red Rocket is old and is not like the prime Bengals QB we saw a mere three years ago. The Saints have struggled without Sean Payton, and the new head coach Dennis Allen has been nowhere close to perfect. His passive playstyle has crippled the Saints offense, hurting Dalton and his weapons production. Dalton should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup. 

 

Isiah Pacheco, RB, Chiefs: Start. The seventh round rookie out of Rutgers had moments of superstardom in the first half of the season, and has now overtaken Clyde Edwards-Helaire as the lead back on the best team in the NFL. He had his highest snap-share of the season last week and is commanding the vast majority of the carries out of the backfield. Pacheco adds an explosive element to this offense that was lacking previously. Pacheco is a start in Week 11 and the rest of the season if he keeps getting the volume. 

 

Jamaal Williams, RB, Lions: Sit. Dan Campbell’s once electrifying and league leading offense has come down to earth. Despite maintaining an offense that sits in the upper half of the league, a lot of changes have affected the shape and overall production of the offense. Most notably, the 23-year-old D’andre Swift’s gradual return to peak health will keep the touches low for both backs.We are both benching and trying to trade away Williams.

 

Allen Robinson, WR, Rams: Start. The former triple crown winner and Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp has been placed on the IR. Who will fill this void? The answer is Allen Robinson. The former Pro-Bowler has proven he can be the number one guy in an offense, as he did in Chicago, and with little competition he will likely break out in the coming weeks. Robinson has all the tools to be a top 10 fantasy wide receiver week in and week out and with Kupp’s absence, he will likely see the targets to put him in that territory. We are starting Robinson at any position we can this week.

 

Michael Pittman, WR, Colts: Sit. Jim Irsey hiring the inexperienced Jeff Saturday made headlines all last week, but the big win over the Raiders was enough to calm the masses. Yet, this coaching change is not a good sign for Pittman and the passing game. Saturday centered the offense around Jonathan Taylor, who had his most carries in a game since Week 1. Furthermore, the Colts face one of the best pass defenses in the NFL in the Philadelphia Eagles, and we think Darius Slay will lock Pittman down. We are looking for other options at the wide receiver position this week. 

 

Cole Kmet, TE, Bears: Start. Justin Fields is showing the Bears organization that he is a franchise QB and Cole Kmet and Co. are reaping the rewards. Kmet has found the end zone five times in the last three weeks and just had a season high seven targets in Week 10. He faces the Falcons defense who has given the seventh most points per game to opposing tight ends. He will eventually start to have touchdown regression but not yet. We are starting Kmet without fail in Week 11. 

 

Dawson Knox, TE, Bills: Sit. Knox’s best production in fantasy football this year, without scoring a touchdown, came last week after catching three wide open checkdowns in the last minutes of the fourth quarter and he only put up 9.7 points in PPR leagues. This target share is not sustainable at all and quite honestly, the production is mediocre as well. Although he has a great connection to Josh Allen, he has not been able to put it together this year and his floor is way too low. We are avoiding Knox until he can prove he can put up consistent numbers.
