Fantasy Football Week 11: Top 5 Players You Must Start
Every week there a few guys that need to be in your fantasy football lineups, and week 11 is no different with some value for your season long leagues, and also your daily fantasy.
Odell Beckham Jr WR New York Giants
If you have Odell Beckham Jr on your fantasy team there is no question that he is going to be in your lineup, but where I really like him also is in daily fantasy leagues. The Giants face off with the Buccaneers this weekend and if Beckham Jr doesn’t get at least 150 yards receiving, that has to be considered a shocker. The Bucs are giving up 291.9 yards per game through the air which is 29th in the league.
Even Eli Manning can’t mess up a matchup like this. I expect the Giants will look his way a lot and for a lot of success.
Marcus Mariota QB Tennessee Titans
Marcus Mariota has combined for 46 fantasy points over the last two games, and he is finally looking healthy from an elbow injury that really affected his play.
He will be going against the Colts who have only held three quarterbacks to fewer than two passing touchdowns this season. Look for Mariota to get at least two touchdowns in this game, which means he is a must start this week.
James Conner RB Pittsburgh Steelers
It’s officially the James Conner show in Pittsburgh now with Le’Veon Bell not reporting to the team and he should be in line for a big game.
Conner is averaging 26.5 fantasy points per game and is facing a Jaguars defense that is 18th in the league against the run. The last few years the run defense has been scary, but there is nothing to worry about this year and Conner is going to exploit them.
Don’t be shocked if Conner goes for 120 yards and at least two touchdowns in this one. He is the true bell cow and doesn’t share the ball, which really helps his fantasy value.
Eric Ebron TE Indianapolis Colts
I guess all someone needs to do is leave the Lions to be good. Eric Ebron has 39 receptions this year for 463 yards and nine touchdowns.
He does have a tough matchup against a Titans team that is very good in the red zone, but he is clearly Andrew Luck’s favorite target in that area. At least another 50 receiving yards and a touchdown should be expected in this game.
Demaryius Thomas WR Houston Texans
Demaryius Thomas struggled in his first game with the Houston Texans but still finished with three receptions for 61 yards. He had been with the team for less than a week and was still learning on the fly, but with more learning time the stats should go up this weekend.
The Texans face the Redskins and they should be focusing a lot of attention on Deandre Hopkins, which should leave a lot of one on one matchups for Thomas. I expect at least 80 yards a touchdown in this game, which makes him a must-start in any lineup.
