Fantasy Football: Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Recommendations for Week 11

Week 10 of the NFL regular season came and went as quickly as fall weather did in the East Coast. Week 11 is now upon us, as it’s getting very close to playoff territory in fantasy leagues.

It’s time to put on your big boy (or girl) pants, and ready yourself for the home stretch of your fantasy season. Waiver wire adds, trades and other transactions become that more important now.

It’s also a good time to look ahead at what players have favorable match ups in the weeks that your playoffs occur. Buying low on guys with a nice set of opponents is a nice way to get an edge on the field.

For instance, David Johnson is a buy-low candidate right now who has a nice schedule coming up. In Weeks 14-17, Johnson faces the Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks.

All of those teams have been susceptible to the run this year. This leaves room for a nice finish from Johnson, giving owners a chance in their playoffs.

Now onto my picks in Week 11. My picks are based on PPR (points per reception) scoring and can be used in either season-long or DFS (daily fantasy sports) leagues.

Here’s who I’m liking, or not liking in Week 11.
