Studs, Duds, and Sleepers: Week 11

November 16, 2018

We’ve officially reached Week 11, which means you need to be making your playoff push. We have you covered with our Studs, Duds and Sleepers for Week 11.

QUARTERBACKS
Stud: Matt Ryan – He has at least 330 passing yards in six of Atlanta’s last seven games. He’s scored the second-most fantasy points among quarterbacks so far this season. Ryan has thrown 21 touchdowns to just three interceptions and is a QB1 for the rest of the season. He has a solid matchup this week against a middle of the pack Dallas defense.

Dud: Andrew Luck – Luck has at least three touchdown passes in six-straight games. That streak will be put to the test this week against a Titans defense that is allowing the 4th fewest points per game to opposing quarterbacks.

Sleeper: Phillip Rivers – Rivers has thrown at least two touchdown passes in every game this season. He faces the Broncos at home this week, which should mean the streak continues. Rivers is a safe play in Week 11 who could erupt at any moment. He’s a QB1.

RUNNING BACKS
Stud: Todd Gurley – Gurley has at least 19 fantasy points (PPR) in every game this season. He has 40 more points than the next closest running back (Alvin Kamara) and should continue to stay hot this week against a Kansas City defense that is allowing the most fantasy points to opposing running backs.

Dud: James Conner – Conner may struggle this week against a tough Jacksonville defense. He’s also dealing with a concussion, but he was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice. Conner should play, which is good news for those who have him in season-long leagues, but I’d avoid him in daily formats.

Sleeper: Dion Lewis – Lewis gets a weak Indianapolis defense this week, is clearly the Titans’ number one back and should continue to get 15-20 carries this week. He’s an RB2 with upside this week.

WIDE RECEIVER
Stud: John Brown – Brown has been bottled up in recent weeks – six receptions for 43 yards in his last two games. He will try to get on track against a Bengals’ secondary allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season.

Dud: Tyler Boyd – Boyd had three receptions for 65 yards in his first full game without A.J. Green. He had a few big plays, but Boyd’s value drops slightly without someone like Green lining up on the other side. The Bengals play Baltimore this week – they allow the sixth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Sleeper: Sterling Shepard – Shepard only had three targets last week, but caught two of them and had a touchdown. He is on shaky WR4 ground, but does have upside. He will have a few big games this season. Shepard could have a big game this week against a weak Tampa Bay secondary.

TIGHT END
Stud: Travis Kelce – Kelce has at least five receptions in every game but one so far this season. He’s a premiere tight end and should continue to have success this week against the Rams. Los Angeles has given up the ninth-most yards to opposing tight ends this season.

Dud: Kyle Rudolph – Rudolph hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 3. He hasn’t had more than four receptions in his last four games and has been a fantasy disappointment. He’s a low-end TE1 moving forward.

Sleeper: Jared Cook – Cook’s value has dropped in recent weeks, but he was targeted nine times last week and should have plenty of opportunities this week in Arizona.

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS
Stud: Pittsburgh – The Steelers’ can pressure the quarterback and should tee off on Blake Bortles this week. The Jaguars are giving up the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing defenses this week.

Dud: Baltimore – The Ravens’ defense is projected to be a top-scoring defense this week, but they face a Bengals’ offense that doesn’t turn the ball over and has fared well against the Ravens in their last few matchups.

Sleeper: Arizona – The Cardinals’ defense hasn’t been good, but they should play well at home this week against a bad Oakland team.
