Fantasy Football Update 11/15/16: Week 11 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 11
November 15, 2016
Week 10 is officially finished up in the NFL, and it’s time to start looking forward to Week 11 on the fantasy football waiver wire. Let’s check out a few notable players who are trending right now and see if anyone will make a viable add for this week.
New York Giants Defense: The G Men are trending this week as a hot defensive add, even though they’ve scored just 14 combined points over the last two weeks.

New York’s defense will get a pretty good matchup this week, hence the increased adds. The Giants will face off against Chicago, who has given up the seventh-most fantasy points this year to opposing defenses.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers: Fantasy owners who stuck with Starks this past week were rewarded with 10.4 fantasy points, even though the Packers were blown out by the Titans 47-25.
The key takeaway here is that Starks played 71 percent of the snaps over Ty Montgomery, which is a very noteworthy disparity. The good news is that Starks will get a good matchup against the Redskins this week, who have given up the eighth-most fantasy points to running backs this year.
Cameron Meredith, WR, Chicago Bears: Let’s move on to the aforementioned Bears and look at Meredith, who is a hot WR add right now. He’s got some great games under his belt, including 11 fantasy points last week against Tampa and a 17.6-point outing against Indianapolis.
With Alshon Jeffery suspended for PEDs, Meredith becomes the Bears’ best option downfield, and he should get a good amount of targets against the Giants this weekend.
Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills: Woods and the Bills are coming out of a bye in Week 10, so he’s not as centered on the fantasy radar as he potentially could be. That said, in his last game Woods put up 16.2 points with 13 targets and 10 receptions against Seattle.
Woods seems like a guy on the rise right now, and he’s still widely available in fantasy. He’ll be in Cincinnati this week.
Eric Ebron, TE, Detroit Lions: After a strong Week 1, Ebron stumbled for several weeks, but he’s back on the fantasy radar now. Last weekend, he put up seven catches on eight targets for 92 yards in his best performance since the opener.
Ebron has 18 targets and 14 catches in the last two weeks, and has managed at least 7.9 fantasy points in both of those outings. He’ll get the Jaguars this week, and should remain a focus of the offense there.
