Week 11




Tua Tagovailoa @ Jets ($5,500)

It looks as if Tua Tagovailoa WILL play week 11 against the Jets on the road as he recovers from a broken finger. The Jets are a disaster and have allowed 43 points per game over their last four. Using Tua with Jaylen Waddle ($5,600) or Mike Gesicki ($5,200) provides us with affordable upside in a positive game script.



Justin Fields vs. Ravens ($5,700)

A star is being born in Chicago. Maybe. Justin Fields has showed upside over his past two starts against formidable defenses in the Steelers and 49ers. His rushing equity is the differentiator, and the Bears are an offense that will need Fields in every facet to generate yards;points. With Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney questionable, using Fields with Cole Kmet ($3,400) gives us another affordable, under-owned stack. It’s Fields time, and we’ve all been waiting patiently.




Running Backs

Michael Carter vs. Dolphins ($5,800)

It has become Michael Carter time in New York. Carter has caught 22 passes over his last four games and will get a Dolphins defense that has been horrible as the Jets. He’s a burner that needs to get into space and create plays. Carter leads the team with 673 yards from scrimmage on 133 touches, including 31 receptions. Carter has an excellent chance to surpass 1,000 all-purpose yards in his rookie season. He’ll face a Dolphins defense that is allowing 109 rushing yards per game. Sign me up in tournaments.



Myles Gaskin @ Jets ($5,700)

Starting two running backs from the same game can be entertaining, particularly divisional games that tend to stay close. Myles Gaskin has locked in his starting role as the 15-20 touch “work horse” for the Dolphins. The issue? Mediocre at best run blocking. Gaskin will face a Jets run defense that is allowing 140 rushing yards a game on the ground. I’ll have pieces of Gaskin but his ownership % will be the deal breaker. His ceiling is high, but his floor is low.




Wide Receivers

Marcus Johnson vs. Texans ($3,500)

Julio Jones is now on injured reserve and much defensive attention has been paid to A.J. Brown. Culminate the loss of Derrick Henry, and the Titans offense looks different. Enter Crate Play, Marcus Johnson. Johnson caught 5-of-6 targets for 100 week 11, and he’l get a porous Texans secondary to make matter better. While his consistency has not been there, at his price, Johnson is a great salary saver in tournaments.



Robby Anderson vs. Football Team ($4,600)

It looks like Cam Newton will be starting week 11 at home against Washington, and he is essentially playing for a future in the NFL. Robby Anderson is way too cheap as he has disappointed many owners so far this season so far. The home runs will come. Anderson caught 4-of-6 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown. D.J. Moore is discounted too. Anderson stated “it’s like a dream come true” when asked about playing with Newton. Sign me up in tournaments in spite of the unclear rapport the two share.




Tight Ends

Cole Kmet vs. Ravens ($3,400)

Justin Fields may be without Darnell Mooney and Allen Robinson week 11 when they play the Ravens at home. He will have Cole Kmet whom caught 6-of-8 targets for 87 yards week 9 prior to the Bears bye week. In the last six games Kmet has snap percentages of 98%, 80%, 79%, 89%, 90%, and 77%. He’s turning the corner, and Fields will need him too. I will have more Kmet than any other tight end week 11, based on cost and role.



Dan Arnold vs. 49ers ($4,100)

Dan Arnold has become a popular Crate play recently and his price tag has stayed nearly close to the same. Arnold has caught 9 of 15 targets over the past two weeks, becoming a favorite target for rookie Trevor Lawrence. He has a high floor and we can expect some positive touchdown regression to ensue. I love his role, and usage.




Defense/Special Teams

Chiefs vs. Cowboys ($2,200)
