This week, I will be reviewing the most lucrative NFL matchups of week 11 that should bring a lot of fantasy points across the board. Check out the players that could have successful weeks below.
Pittsburgh Steelers Offense vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Pittsburgh Steelers are taking their undefeated record to Jacksonville in what should be their tenth win of the season by the end of it. Jacksonville’s defense allows a lot of fantasy points across the board to each position. They allow the third-most to quarterbacks, the seventh most to running backs, the ninth most to wide receivers, and the third most to tight ends. The Steelers have a lot of fringe starting fantasy players on their roster that should be considered starters for this week. Ben Roethlisberger is a fringe starter for quarterback each week, and I like his odds this week as a QB1 after putting up 29.32 points on Cincinnati last week. James Conner should have a better day after struggling last week with 6.8 fantasy points. Diontae Johnson is a favorite of mine out of the Steelers’ wide receivers as he gets a 25% target share, which leads their receivers. Big Ben has projected 19.5 at QB6, Conner 15.8, and Johnson 12.8 points.
New England Patriots Run Game vs. Houston Texans
The Patriots’ backfield has been loaded with fantasy points from Damien Harris and Rex Burkhead. They will play the Texans next week, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs this season. They allowed 34.8 points between Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt last week when they played the Browns. Damien Harris has been averaging 15.5 attempts in the backfield and has seen over 100 rushing yards in two of his last three contests. Rex Burkhead has made the top ten standings for running backs for two straight weeks now and has been making great use of catching out of the backfield. With the possibility of Sony Michel returning to the lineup, it could be interesting for carries. But, Harris has been performing well and I’m sure they don’t want to rush Michel back into playing. Harris has projected 10.9 fantasy points and Burkhead is projected 10 points.
Baltimore Ravens Passing Game vs. Tennessee Titans
The Baltimore Ravens are a heavier rushing team this season than a passing team. However, the Titans, while having a really solid secondary, have allowed a decent amount of points to quarterbacks and wide receivers. They have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks and the sixth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. This bodes well for Lamar Jackson, who has put up way fewer fantasy points than his 400+ points he did last season. He has projected 20.4 fantasy points and projected top-five next week. Marquise Brown has seriously declined for fantasy this season and he has only seen three games over 10 points. But, he is due for a great fantasy week and this should be the week to do it. He has projected 12.2 fantasy points for WR30 against the Titans. Mark Andrews is also a notable fantasy player for next week after having a bounce-back week against the New England Patriots for 13.1 fantasy points. If he can keep things consistent, he should be a TE1 going forward. Andrews has projected 11.15 fantasy points next week as a projected TE3 in week 11.
Minnesota Passing Game vs. Dallas Cowboys
Minnesota has lessened the number of pass attempts that Cousins sees in the passing game to give Dalvin Cook more opportunity. While Cook will be the central point of attack for the Vikings’ offense, their wide receivers should see excellent days against the Cowboys’ weak secondary. The Cowboys have allowed the second-most fantasy points to receivers this season and the 12th most to quarterbacks. Adam Thielen has struggled with two weeks under six points in the last three weeks. However, last week he put up 20.3 points on the Chicago Bears. He only has three weeks under ten points this week and has projected 13.85 points for next week against the Cowboys. Justin Jefferson has been a great surprise as one of the premier rookie receivers in the league and dominating fantasy leagues. He, like Thielen, saw two tough weeks in the past three weeks with two performances under 10 points. However, he similarly had a great week against Chicago for 21.5 fantasy points. He averages 15.4 points and has projected 12.2 fantasy points next week.
Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The last time these two teams faced off against each other in week five, they both put up a combined 72 points in the game. The Raiders attacked well against them with Josh Jacobs, who has projected 17.35 fantasy points next week. Darren Waller had a touchdown against them last time, making this a great bounce-back game for him as he only had 6.7 fantasy points last week. Derek Carr could make his way into the top ten if he performed as he did against them when he put up 23.98 fantasy points. Carr has projected 14.9 this week but could be a solid filler for those on bye weeks. Henry Ruggs‘ only game over 10 points has come against the Chiefs this season, where he had 2-118-1 on the day. Ruggs is never a consistent starter but could be a possible wavier wire option seeing as this is an important divisional matchup.
Patrick Mahomes placed himself second in fantasy points for quarterbacks when he last played the Raiders. He had 29.7 points off of three total touchdowns in the game. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce both had excellent games last time. Hill had a rushing touchdown that got him to 18.3 fantasy points while Kelce led the week for tight ends with 24.8 points. Hill has projected 17.25 points next week while Kelce has projected 19 next week. Both of these teams will be competing hard for a win, so this should be a huge scoring game like last time.
