Fantasy Football Week 11 Advice: Last Minute Tips

Every week in the NFL, and on our fantasy football rosters, there are those who surprise us and those who disappoint. Here is a look at who some of those players will be in Week 11.

Fantasy Football Week 11: Big-Name Players Who Could Disappoint

Andy Dalton

Dalton has burst onto the scene as a rookie with nearly 2000 yards on the season and 14 touchdowns. He and the Bengals are going up against the Ravens’ sixth-ranked pass defense today.

Not only will Dalton have to go up against one of the toughest defenses in football, but he will be doing so without star rookie receiver A.J. Green. Green is out with a knee injury, which will have a major impact on Dalton’s performance. His main options to throw to will be Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell, who will be blanketed by the secondary of the Ravens. The game should be a low-scoring affair, and Dalton’s impact will be minimized.

Ray Rice

The Bengals defense is, along with the Ravens, among one of the top defenses in the league. They have the second-ranked rush defense in the NFL at just under 87 yards a game.

Ray Rice will have to go against this tough defense, but that is not his only problem. The Ravens offense has been struggling as of late, and as a result Rice has not been seeing many carries. He has not had 20 carries or 100 yards in a game since October 16th against the Texans, in which he had 23 carries for 101 yards. Look for the Ravens to focus on the pass, and once again leave Rice out of the gameplan.

Vincent Jackson

Phillip Rivers and the offense of the Chargers have been inconsistent this season, and they are currently on a four-game losing streak. Jackson only caught one pass last week against the Raiders, but had 7 catches and three touchdowns the week before.

Jackson only has three games this season with 100 receiving yards, and all of his six touchdowns have come in those games. The most recent was in the 45-38 shootout against the Packers, in which he had three touchdowns on seven catches. Jackson will not have another one of his big games against the Bears today, as they just recently held the Lions to 13 points last week.

Fantasy Football Week 11: Under-the-Radar Players to Consider

Vince Young

Young is getting his first start of the season on Sunday Night Football due to Michael Vick being out with broken ribs.

I do not expect Young to have a breakout game, but he should be able to put up decent numbers, as he has talented receivers to throw to. Jeremy Maclin is out with a hamstring and shoulder injury, but DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant, and even LeSean McCoy are capable of making big plays. Young is a good option to replace a quarterback who might not be poised to have a great week in fantasy.

Maurice Morris

Morris had a limited role for the Lions last week in Chicago, but that was because Matthew Stafford threw 63 passes in a blowout loss. The Lions are facing the Panthers today, which provides a much more favorable matchup for Morris and the Lions.

Morris is the main back for the Lions, with Jahvid Best still out due to a concussion. He should see a decent amount of carries against the Panthers’ 28th ranked rush defense.

Greg Little

Little has become the top receiving threat in Cleveland, and had a solid game last week with 84 yards on six catches against the Rams.

The Browns have had trouble getting the ball in the endzone in the past few weeks, but if anyone is going to make a big play and score, it will be Little. He is just a rookie, but he will become a big name in the near future.
