Fantasy Football 2014: Week 11 Start/Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 11
November 13, 2014
It’s Thursday, and not only does that mean it’s time for the beginning of the new NFL week, it also means it’s time once again for our latest Start/Sit recommendations for the fantasy football world. This marks the Week 11 edition, and as usual we’ve got a mix of rising and falling stocks among key players. Let’s take a closer look at the stats and situations.
USA TODAY Sports
Robert Griffin III, QB, Washington Redskins: After posting okay numbers in his season debut against the Vikings, Griffin had a bye week to get rested and recovered. He’ll now enter a nice matchup against a very permissive Tampa Bay defense, and should be able to play pretty well. He’s a nice plug-in guy if you’re missing a quarterback this week or if you just need a new face in there.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Let’s stick with the Bucs-Redskins matchup for a moment and check out Seferian-Jenkins. He posted five catches (a season-high) last week against Atlanta, resulting in 30 yards and a touchdown. It was his second score in the last three weeks.
There’s not much to get excited about on Tampa’s offense, but Seferian-Jenkins makes a lot of sense for deeper-league owners in need of a TE this week.
Terrance West, RB, Cleveland Browns: The RB situation in Cleveland has been a tough one for fantasy owners to figure out. West got the bulk of the work in Cincinnati this past week, however, logging 26 carries for 96 yards and a score.
Going with any Cleveland back is a roll of the dice on any given week, but this Houston matchup seems to be pretty favorable for West. He’s a decent flex here.
Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks: Wilson is coming off a nice fantasy day against the Giants, but he did most of it on the ground. He tossed for just 172 yards and a pair of picks, but made up for it by rushing for 107 yards and a touchdown.
The Chiefs defense isn’t going to allow those types of shenanigans in their own stadium, so expect a more subdued Wilson this week.
Rashad Jennings, RB, New York Giants: We realize you’re itching to get Jennings back in the lineup this week, since he’s expected to be returning from his knee injury. That said, you might want to wait a week if you have the luxury. He’s returning to an awful matchup against a 49ers defense that shouldn’t have much trouble bottling him up, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants eased his workload in his first game back, either.
Andre Johnson, WR, Houston Texans: After a shaky start, Cleveland CB Joe Haden has been making his presence felt again. This week he’ll be tasked with Johnson, who is coming off a two-catch, 12-yard game.
Making matters worse for Johnson is the fact that he’ll be stuck with new QB Ryan Mallett, who may or may not decide to throw him the ball. This matchup simply doesn’t look appealing.
