Fantasy Football Update 11/16/16: Week 11 Start / Sit Picks
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy This Week
November 16, 2016
It’s a fantasy football Wednesday, and that means it’s time once again to check out our weekly Start ‘Em / Sit ‘Em list to help you out with those crucial lineup decisions. Today’s edition is for Week 11, so let’s check the numbers and see how the cards are falling.

Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills: Taylor’s name doesn’t quite carry the weight that many other fantasy quarterbacks do, but he’s definitely worth a look this weekend against the Bengals.
Taylor has at least 18.1 fantasy points in each of the last four weeks, and Cincinnati is allowing nearly 20 points per game to opposing quarterbacks.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: Now that Ware is healthy again, he’s a good bet to get plenty of work moving forward. He played 40 snaps this last week, bagging 16 touches in all.
Ware should get lots of opportunities this weekend against the Buccaneers, who are giving up loads of fantasy points to opposing RBs.
Donte Moncrief, WR, Indianapolis Colts: Moncrief was a big sleeper prospect heading into the season, and he’s shown some real signs of greatness since then.
Though Moncrief won’t tear it up in yardage (that role falls to T.Y. Hilton), he is a constant threat in the red zone. He’ll get a permissive Titans pass defense this weekend.
Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals: The high hopes for Palmer this season have all but dissipated, and his mistakes are costing fantasy owners dearly. He tossed 376 yards last week, but also gave up three turnovers.
Palmer gets a tough matchup this week against the Vikings defense, who has fallen from grace a bit but is still potent against opposing quarterbacks.
Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams: It’s just about time to cut the cord with Gurley, who hasn’t given owners much over the past couple of weeks.
Gurley has scored just 14.6 total points in his last pair of outings, and gets a pretty tricky matchup this weekend against a good Dolphins rush defense.
Jordan Matthews, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: There’s a pretty simple factoid here that should move owners off of Matthews. He’s averaging just 8.5 points on the road this season, and will be out west in Seattle this weekend.
Though the Seahawks defense isn’t quite as fearsome as it once was, they’re still playing very well against opposing wide receivers in fantasy terms, so keep that in mind with Matthews.
