Week 11 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings & Projections: Patrick Mahomes & Company Back In Action

Week 10 was a very weird week, with more bad weather games and weird performances. We also had Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins connecting for a Hail Mary to swing some fantasy matchups late in the afternoon games. Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger both put up some vintage performances, combining for eight total touchdowns. Alvin Kamara, Ronald Jones, and Josh Jacobs were top in scoring, this is at least before Dalvin Cook might be able to put up a big game. Otherwise, it was an abnormal week for running back scoring with Rex Burkhead and Devonte Booker being top-ten scoring options. Cole Beasley was WR1 on the week in PPR formats, and we saw names like Willie Snead and Marquez Valdes-Scantling were top-ten options as well. Week 11 has a lot of action with teams back off bye like the Chiefs and we get some of the poorer offenses off the field.

Week 11 Quarterback Rankings

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are back this week and get the Raiders, who they lost to earlier in the season. Mahomes is QB4 on the season and before the break has been on a different level. Las Vegas is middle of the road in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks this season but a primetime game in a dome with this group is going to be a plus for the Chiefs offense. Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson square off this week again, and the Cardinals and Seahawks are both in the bottom-third in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Of course, the Seahawks are allowing the most fantasy points per game with their secondary being in the shape that it is in.

Matt Ryan and potentially Jameis Winston square off as Drew Brees is out this week and likely going to sit out for the next few weeks. Winston has top-ten potential if they let him air it out a bit but I am not sure that will be the case. The Saints might even just roll out Hill and Winston in these weird packages. The matchup is a plus as the Falcons are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks on the season.

Ben Roethlisberger has played well this season and is now up to QB15 on the year. He has another great matchup this week alongside multiple Steelers wide receivers as he faces the Jaguars. They are allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Matthew Stafford is coming off a surprising week where he produced a multi-touchdown game against a good secondary. The Panthers defense has been more middle of the road of late and Stafford is a sneaky top-ten option.

Week 11 Running Backs Rankings

N/AN/AN/A5

Alvin Kamara continues to put up monster numbers and he is well ahead of every other running back when it comes to PPR scoring. The Saints face the Falcons this week, who have allowed the 10th most receptions to running backs this season. This is a spot where Kamara can be relied upon per usual to get his 8+ targets and 10 rushing attempts. Josh Jacobs is coming off a big week and is having a sneaky good season despite once again not getting a ton of work in the passing game. He faces the Chiefs who have allowed the 11th most PPR points per game to running backs on the season. Kansas City doesn’t focus much on defending the run so if the Raiders can keep this close, Jacobs will have a strong day.

Ezekiel Elliott and Dalvin Cook square off this week but at this point, Cook is miles ahead because of the Vikings offense being serviceable around him. The Cowboys have allowed 1139 yards and eight touchdowns to running backs through nine weeks this season. Minnesota has allowed 862 yards and five touchdowns, and this is before facing Chicago, but can’t imagine those numbers go up a ton. James Robinson is usually a top-ten option but facing the Steelers who have allowed the fewest fantasy points to running backs, this is going to be a tough week.

Damien Harris has a chance to put it all together this week. He hasn’t had that 100+ yard game where he has the two touchdowns to go with it and really pop up on our fantasy radar, but the Texans are allowing the fourth-most fantasy point sper game to running backs on the season and 11 rushing touchdowns. Antonio Gibson has a chance to build off last week with the Bengals on the map.

Week 11 Wide Receivers Rankings

35.5N/AN/A1

DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk draw the Seahawks again, who just continue to give up fantasy points on another level. 57.4 fantasy points per game allowed for the Seattle defense to wide receivers and Hopkins comes in as the number one option this week. Hopkins is currently WR3 on the season just behind Davante Adams and Stefon Diggs. Adams this week has a tough matchup against the Colts, who have oddly limited wide receivers this season but he is matchup proof and there isn’t really a strong top-end receiver that they faced this year and if they did, they allowed them to have a solid game.

Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have Arizona this week and Patrick Peterson shut down Metcalf in that prior matchup where Tyler Lockett ran wild. I wouldn’t downgrade Metcalf a ton but there are guys in better spots this week. Calvin Ridley should be back this week which is a plus, as the Saints are allowing 37.5 PPR points per game to wide receivers. Julio Jones has been solid this season, averaging 17.8 PPR points per game and would be higher but has only played 7 games.

The Buccaneers wide receivers get a downgrade this week against the Rams, who have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game. Jalen Ramsey has shut down opposing corners but it is the whole unit picking things up. We saw them shut down Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf this past week and have done it week in and week out.

Week 11 Tight Ends Rankings

27N/AN/A0

Travis Kelce is back and is going to be the number one tight end each and every week. He has a 58-769-6 line this season. Las Vegas is a middle of the road defense against tight ends and Kelce should crush this week like no other. At what has been a weak position, those who have Kelce have a major edge over everybody else. Darren Waller is on the other side of this game and the Chiefs have actually limited tight ends this season where last year we saw a lot funneled down. I still like Waller because of his volume and the Raiders will need to put up some points.

TJ Hockenson ranks as TE3 in PPR formats this season and this week they face the Panthers who have allowed 13.8 PPR points per game to opposing tight ends. Hockenson is quietly having a very good second season. Noah Fant is as well and I like him this week against the Dolphins. Austin Hooper is back and was quiet in a game where passing offenses couldn’t throw. They get the Eagles this week and they have allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game. Dallas Goedert is in a good spot as well with the Browns allowing the 10th most fantasy points to tight ends.

Week 11 Kicker Rankings

N/AN/AN/A1

Wil Lutz is a top-five kicker this season averaging 9.4 fantasy points per game. The Falcons are a team that allows plenty of movement to opposing offenses and the Saints might not be as efficient in the red zone with Drew Brees out. Lutz is 18 of 19 on the season and continues to be reliable as a top option. Harrison Butker is in that same boat and we want to target these high scoring games. That goes for Daniel Carlson again on the other side of this game, although if the Raiders fall down early, Carlson’s opportunities will be gone. Jason Sanders ranks 5th in scoring this season and has been very reliable. He gets the Broncos this week who have allowed 25 field goal attempts in nine games this season. This is a great spot for him. Matt Prater is also in a strong matchup against the Panthers, who have allowed 9.2 fantasy points per game to opposing kickers.

Week 11 Defense Rankings

80.55171151

Pittsburgh SteelersThe Steelers are the best defense in the league right now and this is a strong week for them facing the Jaguars. They are not a good offense and it doesn’t matter for me that Gardner Minshew is starting or not. Pittsburgh is an easy number one choice this week. Miami has been playing well, and rank 6th in defensive scoring this season. They will face the Broncos, who are allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing defenses. Los Angeles Chargers are in an upside spot with the Jets allowing the 7th most fantasy points per game but the Chargers have disappointed a lot defensively over the past two seasons, even in good spots. The Vikings could put up a decent score this week, getting the Cowboys, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game.
