Fantasy Football Rankings
There is just a limited amount of time remaining to secure a playoff spot or raise your playoffs seed. While a league championship cannot be won in Week 11, it is not exaggerated to say that it might be lost if you aren’t diligent.
Now let’s start you off on the right foot by outlining our rankings and highlighting a player at each of the three-star positions who has the best matchup.
Daniel Jones vs the Detroit Lions is a matchup to watch.
Jones isn’t the most reliable quarterback out there, and even his finest performances aren’t frequently fantasy juggernauts. There is a reason, in other words, why he only earns the 10th slot in these rankings despite having an excellent matchup.
You might, however, do much worse as a substitute starter. He has 20 or more running yards in all but one of his games, hasn’t thrown an interception since September, and recently completed two touchdown passes for the second time in his previous four games.
Now, according to Yahoo, he faces the Detroit defense that has given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this year. This is the game where Jones should explode if he ever does so in one.
211 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and 33 running yards are the estimated figures.
Match to take advantage of: Houston Texans vs. Brian Robinson
The Washington backfield isn’t the most straightforward to analyze, but if the Commanders want to control the clock and create a lead, Robinson is their man.
The finest illustration of that thus far was Week 10. In the second quarter, Washington took the lead and didn’t relinquish it, primarily relying on Robinson to secure the victory. He finished with a season-high in carries (26), yards (86), and touchdowns (two) for his short career.
Given that the Texans have suffered four straight defeats, all by a margin of at least seven points, the Commanders have a chance to end this game much sooner. The run defense in Houston is also problematically lenient, as it has allowed the most Fantasy Football points to running backs thus far.
Expected numbers: 92 yards on the ground and two touchdowns
In every game other than Cincinnati’s season opener, he had at least six targets, and four of those games saw eight or more balls sent his way. In six of his previous seven games, he has at least five catches. He’s recorded at least 60 receiving yards, a touchdown reception, or both in all but one of the seven games.
The Steelers’ defense doesn’t appear to be one that will hinder him. The only reason Higgins didn’t blow up this defense in Week 1 (two catches on two targets for 27 yards) was that the Steelers were too preoccupied being embarrassed by Ja’Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd, who combined for 14 receptions, 162 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. Pittsburgh has given up the second-most fantasy points to the position.
