The Patriots, Giants, Seahawks, and Titans are all on bye for week 11. There’s a high chance you’re missing out on a FLEX player or two, as some of these are fantasy-heavy teams. Here’s some suggestions for FLEX options for week 11, whether you’re trying to fill a hole in your roster or just trying to get a couple more points in your week 11 matchup.

Brian Hill

DaVonte Freeman left the Falcons’ last game due to a foot injury. Ito Smith was placed on IR earlier that week, which means Brian Hill became the starting back for the Falcons. Hill got a lot of carries in their last game, 20 to be exact. He took them 61 yards, and scored a touchdown off of a 10 yard reception (his only reception of the game). The Panthers allow the 4th most rushing yards among teams in the league, an average 136.7 per game. I think Hill is a pretty good pickup for this weekend, and if he gets the same amount of carries as he did last week I think he can make a big impact.

Kalen Ballage

Ballage ran the ball 20 times for 43 yards in the Dolphins’ week 10 matchup against the Colts. These numbers might dissuade you from picking him up, but I think they show he has potential. Any back getting 20 carries in a game is one to look out for if you need a fantasy fill-in. They’re playing the Bills this week, who allowed 147 rushing yards last game against the Browns. If Ballage gets the same volume of carries, which I think he might, then he has the potential to have a much bigger impact this time around.

J.D. McKissic

J.D. McKissic had 10 carries for 36 yards and 6 receptions for 19 yards on Sunday. That’s a low double-digit fantasy performance in PPR leagues, 11.5 points to be exact. With those 6 receptions, he had the most among Lions receivers in their matchup against the Bears. The Lions have another tough matchup against Dallas this week. However, Dallas has been easier to run against, due to the strength of their passing defense. This defensive matchup plus the fact that Driskel might still be throwing for them, I would expect the Lions to run the ball a little more, which means more chances for McKissic.

Jalen Richard

Jalen Richard, while not getting a single yard on his two carries, made an impact through the air. He had 4 receptions for 43 yards. These stats may seem a bit underwhelming, but he was both the leading receiver in receptions and yards for the Raiders. The Raiders have a great matchup against the Bengals who allow an average 256.4 yards through the air every game, the 11th most in the league. I’m expecting Richard to have an even better performance than he did against the Chargers, and his position as a receiving back makes him especially viable in PPR leagues.

Auden Tate

Week 2 was the only week Tate had under 6 targets. Furthermore, his 13 redzone targets are the most among Bengals receivers. The Bengals are matched up against the Raiders, who allow an average of 283.2 passing yards per game, the third most in the league. Clearly, Tate is a trusted receiver for the Bengals, especially when considering the amount of redzone targets he gets. I think the Bengals are going to be moving the ball a lot against Oakland on Sunday, and I think Tate will definitely play a part in their passing game on Sunday.

DeVante Parker

Parker had 10 targets against the Colts last week, and cashed them in for a total 11.9 points in PPR leagues. Preston Williams is out for the year, which means more targets for Parker. The Dolphins are going up against a tough secondary with the Bills, who allow only 188.9 passing yards per game on average. However, I don’t expect them to be shut down through the air, especially on this Fitzmagical hot streak they’ve been on. While their passing game will probably be limited, I think Parker is going to get chances at the ball regardless.

Cole Beasley

Beasley had 4 receptions for 74 yards against the Browns, and has been a solid receiver for the Bills all season. He has 39 reception for 411 yards and 3 touchdowns this season. The Dolphins have been one of the easier teams to throw against this season, and this matchup is looking great for Beasley and the Bills. Last time the Bills played the Dolphins they put up 31 points, their highest score of the season. I think this is going to be another high-scorer for the Bills, and that Beasley is going to put on a strong performance.
