Fantasy Football Start ’em Sit ’em Week 11
It’s Week 11 in the fantasy season which puts us on the home stretch before the fantasy playoffs start for most leagues in Week 15. If the trade deadline for your league has already passed, you are pretty much stuck with the core players that you have now for the rest of the season.
What does this all mean you ask? We have now officially entered Handcuffing SZN! In Week 10 we saw Aaron Jones go down with a sprained MCL, opening the door for AJ Dillon to have a breakout game with 2 TD’s against the Seahawks. We also saw Mark Ingram fill in admirably for Alvin Kamara, looking like he still has gas in the tank rushing for over 100 yards and a TD.
If you see your starting RB’s handcuff on the waiver wire still, now is the time to go get him! Jonathan Taylor owners should try and find a way to get Nyheim Hines. If you have Michael Carter, go get Ty Johnson. If you have Eli Mitchell, you need to have Jeffery Wilson as insurance. If for some reason Tony Pollard is still on waivers, run, don’t walk to pick him up as he would be a league-winner if Zeke ever went down.
“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”
Jaylen Waddle – Dolphins WR
Waddle is coming off a subpar Week 10 performance against a stingy Ravens D that limited him to 4 catches for only 61 yards and no TD’s. The 6 targets he received in the game were the fewest in five games, despite getting over 10 targets in the two previous games. This week he gets a much softer matchup against a Jets defense that has more holes than swiss cheese and ranks 30th in pass DVOA this season. With both DeVante Parker and Will Fuller missing from action, expect Waddle to make a big splash in Week 11.
Jaylen Waddle Week 11 Projections: 14 targets, 10 receptions, 95 receiving yards, 2 receiving TD’s

Week 11 Sit ’em
Darrel Williams – Chiefs RB
Williams is coming off his best performance of the season, picking apart the helpless Raiders through the air with 9 catches for 101 yards and a touchdown in Week 10. He also rushed 11 times for 43 yards on the ground which added up to a breakthrough 29 point performance in PPR leagues.
Despite this explosive game, the return of Clyde Edwards-Helaire is imminent and he is likely to return to his starring role this week against a Dallas defense that just embarrassed the entire Falcons organization a week ago. I expect CEH to get enough touches to relegate Williams back to a fringe FLEX play at best, but is better off left on benches for now.
Darrel Williams Week 11 Projections: 7 rushing attempts, 33 rushing yards, 4 targets, 2 receptions, 10 receiving yards, 0 TD’s
Update: There’s now a good chance that CEH does not play this week, which would make Darrel Williams a decent option
