Warning: this is a bold start ’em sit ’em Week 11 list and is intended to be used as a guide. You are responsible for making the final decision on your fantasy football rosters. Now that you’ve been warned, let’s have some fun. Here are the players that you should start and should sit for Week 11.
Week 11 Start ’em
LeSean McCoy, Buf RB
Guess who’s back, back again, Shady’s back, tell a friend…
I thought it was just right to borrow that line from hip hop legend Eminem to introduce this week’s must-start player of the week. Since returning from injury,LeSean McCoy has looked like the productive back we all hoped for when we drafted him.
In the four games he has played since his return, McCoy is averaging 20 touches a game to go along with 95 rushing yards and has scored two rushing touchdowns. He also topped 35 receiving yards in two of those contests. The shifty running back has scored 15 or more fantasy points in three of those games making him a legit low-end RB1.
This weekend’s matchup against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium will be tough as their defense is allowing the third fewest fantasy points to running backs at 11 per game. Don’t be scared to deploy McCoy though as the last time he squared-off against the Pats in Week 2, he rushed for 89 yards and scored 10 fantasy points, all while the Bills were still trying to figure out how to use him. Now that they got that figured out, evident by his back-to-back 112 yard rushing performance, it’s safe to say we should see another dominating effort from McCoy against these Patriots. The Week 11 Shady forecast looks like another 100 yard on the ground sprinkled in with 4 receptions for 46 yards and two total touchdowns. Shady’s Back!

Week 11 Sit ’em
Randall Cobb, GB WR
I have no faith in Cobb and that’s putting it lightly. He has been disappointing this year, looking like a candidate for bust of the year.
Last season’s breakout performance seems so long ago especially when you see Cobb’s body of work lately; scoring 4, 2, 3, 3, 15, and 5 standard fantasy points from Week 4 and on. Ouch! Not what the fantasy community had hoped for when they drafted Cobb in the second or third rounds of fantasy drafts.
Enter Minnesota this week, who, sport a Top 10 pass defense and are looking to sap the life out of the hapless Packers offense. The Vikings have allowed only one multi-touchdown game to opposing wide receiving groups all year and it’s safe to say their primary focus will be to not let Cobb beat them.
For this week, Randall Cobb should be on your bench. If you have better options like Stefon Diggs (vs. Packers), Doug Baldwin (vs. 49ers), or Eric Decker (@ Texans) roll with them, other-wise expect a long day for Cobb.
