Fantasy Football Start ’em Sit ’em Week 11 (2018)

Last week was by far my best start em sit em list, as I correctly predicted the breakout of Aaron Jones and the sharp decline of Tom Brady in spectacular fashion. Now while most would bask in this glory for another week, I know better. In the fantasy football advice industry, you are only as good as your last correct prediction. One mistake and your back to the bottom of the barrel.

This is a parallel to many of your fantasy seasons as it stands in week 11. You need to win out in order to have a chance at the playoffs and become a champion. The margin of error is razor thin but you will need to take some calculated risks in order to get an edge on your opponent.

It will take a combination of luck, timing and skill to claim the ultimate prize and the respect of your league. By reading this list you are doing your part to putting yourself in the best position to get the win this week. Good luck to us.

Week 11 Start ’em

Eli Manning – Giants QB

Manning is coming off his first three touchdown performance against the 49ers in week 10, despite only throwing for 188 yards, a season low. Having attended the game at Levi’s in person, I saw an Eli that was making smart decisions in the red zone and getting rid of the ball on time.

He had great timing with Odell Beckham and could look to utilize promising tight end Evan Engram often against the Bucs in week 11, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position. Eli has yet to put two consistent performances in consecutive weeks, but that will change this week at home against Tampa Bay where both teams will be throwing early and often. Stream Eli with confidence in week 11.

Eli Manning Week 11 Projections: 357 passing yards, 3 passing TD’s, 1 INT

Week 11 Sit ’em

Tyler Boyd – Bengals WR

With A.J. Green injured, Boyd failed to take advantage of the opportunity in week 10 against the Saints in what should have been an epic shootout. Instead, Boyd was locked up and held to only three catches for 65 yards and no touchdowns. This week they go on the road to face a Ravens defense that is well rested and that has been extremely tough against wide receivers.

Andy Dalton has been erratic as of late and the loss of his top wide receiving target is sure to lead to some indecisiveness. Translation: multiple interceptions will be thrown. Fade Boyd and the Bengals offense this week, there are much better options out there.

Tyler Boyd Week 11 Projections: 4 receptions, 55 yards, 0 TD’s
