Streaming Plays Week 11 2016

By Armando Marsal
Armando Marsal Between bye weeks and injuries, fantasy owners have to find players to step in for their starters each week. Sometimes it is a player on your bench and other times you just have to pick up a player off of waivers and plug him in your lineup. That will be determined by the league you are in as well as the players you have on your bench. That being said, let’s take a look at some players that you can plug in your lineups this week if you are in need.


Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers
Kaepernick has scored 20+ fantasy points in two straight games and faces a Patriots defense that is giving up 271.7 passing yards per game and have surrendered 12 passing touchdowns. In addition, they have given up two rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks which favors a quarterback like Kaepernick. Since getting the starting gig, he has scored over 16 fantasy points in every game. The 49ers are huge underdogs in this game so they could be chasing points here, which will force them to throw more. Garbage time will be his best friends this weekend.

Running Back

C.J. Prosise, Seattle Seahawks
Prosise is set to get the start this week against the Eagles after a big performance last week. In his last game, Prosise rushed for 66 yards on 17 carries and caught all seven of his targets for 87 yards. The Seahawks released Christine Michael and being that this is the first week Thomas Rawls returns from injury, Prosise could be a busy back this weekend. The matchup is not the most appealing one, but the potential volume is intriguing and makes Prosise an interesting play this weekend.

James Starks, Green Bay Packers
Last week, Starks returned after missing some time due to injury and played in 55 of the Packers 78 offensive snaps. He for 33 yards on seven carries and caught three of his four targets for 11 yards and a touchdown. His matchup against the Redskins is one that favors him as they are yielding 23.2 rush attempts and 106.9 rushing yards per game, to go along with 11 touchdowns. If you are hurting at running back this week, Starks is a decent plug in play.

Wide Receiver

Cameron Meredith, Chicago Bears
Am I excited about Meredith this week? Not really, but I do know that the volume should be there with Alshon Jeffery sidelined. We have seen Meredith’s upside and ability to be productive earlier this season, so we are aware that he is capable of this role. Last week, he was targeted twice, but one of his catches went for a 50 yard touchdowns. This is not the bests of matchups, but the fact that he should see a decent amount of targets, puts him in play for those in need.

Jamison Crowder, Washington Redskins
If you have Crowder, chances are you may not be playing him every week, but this is a week to get him in. He has been playing well as of late, averaging 9.3 targets, 6.7 receptions, 84 receiving yards, and 21.3 fantasy points per game (PPR) in his last three games, while also scoring two touchdowns in that span. This week he faces the Packers who are giving up 168.9 receiving yards per game and have surrendered 14 receiving touchdowns (six in the last three games).

Tight End

Cameron Brate, Tampa Bay Bucs
Brate has at least five targets in three straight games and has topped double digit fantasy points in each of those games (PPR formats), as well as, scoring a touchdown in three consecutive games. In the past four games, Brate is third in targets and second in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns for the Bucs. The matchup is not ideal, but the volume is more than enough to justify playing him at a very volatile position.
