NFL Week 11 Start’em/Sit’em



Start’em Cam Newton (CAR, QB)
Cam said it best after one of his two trips to the endzone last week: “I’m back”. As long as he remains the starter (which seems likely), he’s worth starting as a low-end QB1 against a Washington defense that lost Chase Young for the season and is giving up more points to QBs than anyone else.

Start ’em AJ Dillon (GB, RB)
With Aaron Jones sidelined, AJ Dillon racked up 26.8 fantasy points last week. When Green Bay visits Minnesota this week, we expect Jones (mild MCL sprain) to miss the game. Dillon will be atop the depth chart and firmly in RB1 status for this one.

Start ’em Jarvis Landry (CLE, WR)
We consider this more of a “squeaky wheel gets the grease” situation. Landry came out this week complaining about the lack of targets and workload. For a guy who is normally quiet in that regard, we’re sure the Browns would like to see him more involved. The return of Nick Chubb should keep defenses focus once again on the run game. His floor in this one keeps him in the WR3/Flex discussion.

Sit ’em Baker Mayfield (CLE, QB)
This should be such a nice matchup, but the real question is whether or not you can trust Baker Mayfield in your lineup. Last week, the Patriots kept him to just 73 yards before he left the game in the third quarter with a knee contusion. Mayfield has just one game this year with more than 20 points and is averaging an awful 13 points per game. Look for the Browns to keep it on the ground this game and leave Baker on the bench.

Sit ’em Jordan Howard (PHI, RB)
With Miles Sanders sidelined, Jordan Howard returned to fantasy relevance averaging 70 rushing yards in each of those games plus making three trips to the endzone. As of now, Sanders has a chance to play on Sunday. According to Nick Sirianni, “if Miles is healthy and ready to go, he’s our starter.” If he plays, Jordan Howard’s fantasy value will take a significant hit. Even if he does play, the matchup is awful as the Saints give up the 3rd-fewest fantasy points.

Sit ’em Allen Robinson (CHI, WR)
Believe it or not, Allen Robinson hit double-digit production last week for his second-highest scoring week of the season. Mind you that it was just 10.8 points, but frankly, that’s better than his average this season. Justin Fields has simply not lived up to expectations in his rookie season, and when he does throw, it’s often Darnell Mooney that’s being targeted. It’s not much of a stretch to project Robinson to remain under 10 fantasy points once again.
