2020 Fantasy Football: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 11


With the NFL season entering Week 11, don't take any chances and risk losing your next matchup.

Who to start, and who to sit this week in fantasy football:

Start 'Em

QB: Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints
Opponent: vs. Falcons

Drew Brees' injury will sideline him for the Saints matchup with the Falcons, and former Heisman Trophy winner and recipient of LASIK eye surgery Jameis Winston is expected to be the starter against an Atlanta defense that allows more points to opposing quarterbacks than any other. This game is going to be must-watch.

FRIDAY UPDATE: Sean Payton has actually named Taysom Hill the starter for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Per ESPN's Dianna Russini, Winston will not be a part of any offensive packages in the game, hence our forthcoming revision: SIT JAMEIS WINSTON!

RB: D'Andre Swift, Detroit Lions
Opponent: at Panthers

Things are syncing up very nicely. In Week 10, the Lions handed the keys over to Swift as the new RB1, and he put on a show. The Panthers, however, got exposed on the ground by Buccaneers' running back Ronald Jones when he gashed them for nearly 200 yards. Swift now gets his chance at attacking this Carolina run defense that is giving up the third-most fantasy points to opposing backs.

WR: JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steeler
Opponent: vs. Jaguars

JuJu Smith-Schuster is back from fantasy purgatory and can officially be back in your lineup as a reliable flex option. The Steelers are still rolling as we head into Week 11 and Smith-Schuster has now posted back-to-back 20-point outings for the first time this year. He faces a Jaguars' defense that has struggled to contain opposing deep-threats and he has a great chance of notching his third-straight 20-point game.

TE: Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers
Opponent: vs. NY Jets

Hunter Henry has the chance for his biggest fantasy output so far this season on Sunday afternoon when the Chargers host the winless Jets. The Chargers have been a disappointment so far this season, fantasy-wise, but you can rely on Henry to get his fair share of targets against a putrid defense that has struggled all year long.

Sit 'Em

QB: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
Opponent: vs. Colts

Yes. You should keep A-A-Ron on the bench in Week 11. The Colts have allowed the fewest points to opposing quarterbacks so far this season, and the last time Rodgers faced an elite defense -- Week 6 in Tampa Bay-- he finished with 160 yards and two interceptions for a whopping 3.8 points. Find another option.

RB: Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts
Opponent: vs. Packers

It's a great matchup for Taylor when the Colts head to Lambeau, but the rookie running back has now fallen into a RBBC with Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. No one on the Colts can be relied upon besides the Colts D/ST and K Rodrigo Blankenship.

WR: Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Opponent: vs. Rams

Two things jump out about this matchup that should give you an instant red flag. The first is the fact that the Rams have allowed the fewest points to opposing wide receivers, and the second is that this matchup will be played on Monday Night Football, the final game of Week 11. Jalen Ramsey will surely shadow Evans all night, and once you get nervous about starting Evans and want to choose another option, it will already be too late. Be smart. Keep him on your bench.

TE: Noah Fant, Denver Broncos
Opponent: vs. Dolphins

Noah Fant has been one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy this year. He was primed for a breakout season, but injuries and awful quarterback play from Drew Lock has brought him from "elite" to "droppable". The Broncos were one of my favorite offenses coming into the season. But after 10 weeks, no one on the roster can be trusted, especially with a matchup against a terrific Dolphins' defense.
