Fantasy Football 2015: Week 11 Start/Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 11
November 19, 2015
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time once again for our Start-Sit recommendations in the world of fantasy football. This edition is for Week 11, and there are plenty of intriguing decisions for us owners to make. Let’s take a closer look at some fringe players.
USA TODAY Sports
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars: Let’s jump right into the fray with a “Thursday Night Football” start in Bortles. He’s a great budget QB this week against the Titans, who haven’t been able to stop anyone.
The Titans defense is giving up around 20 fantasy points per game to opposing signal-callers, so Bortles should be able to find some room here.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: West is coming off a successful outing against the Broncos, logging 24 rushes for 69 yards and a touchdown. He also added three grabs for 92 yards and another TD in a very Jamaal Charles-like performance.
The Chargers are on West’s menu this week, and San Diego’s run defense is simply horrid. He’s an absolute lock to start in every league.
Jarvis Landry, WR, Miami Dolphins: Landry is also a must-start guy this week, as he’s coming off a 7-catch, 52-yard effort against the Eagles. He also had a 16-yard rush.
Landry is a PPR dynamo, and should already be solidified in those lineups. He gets a favorable matchup against the Cowboys and will be featured there once again.
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals: Dalton and the Bengals are coming off an embarrassing primetime loss against the Texans, and they’re looking to get it going this week in Arizona.
We’re not seeing a real resurgence from Dalton here, as the Texans game really exposed that Cincinnati offense. He’ll get matched up against a Cardinals D that has been very difficult on opposing quarterbacks.
Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay Packers: Resist the temptation to put Lacy back into your lineup. He’s expected to hit the field once again after being inactive last week, and will go into a divisional game against the Vikes on Sunday.
Lacy will more than likely remain behind James Starks when it comes to touches--at least for the time being--and is a high-risk play that’s not advised unless you’re desperate.
Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers: Let’s stick with this inept Packers offense theme and check out Cobb, who should also be on your bench this week. Sure, he’s a big-name player capable of wonder, but he’s scored more than five fantasy points just once in the last six weeks.
Making matters worse, Cobb’s matchup is pretty bad, too, speaking from a career numbers standpoint. Sit him if you can.
