Week 11 Fantasy Football Breakdown (4pm & SNF Contests)

Here we go! Another week in fantasy football! I know you are looking over the schedule and trying to figure out who to play with the #Saints being on bye. I know, let’s cry together because that was guaranteed fantasy points on a week to week basis.

With that being said, we need to find some plays to help us dominate our leagues this week. I will breakdown each game with good plays of the week, & I have italicize my favorite plays.  So without further ado, let’s get started.

Teams that are on bye: Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants


Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers

Line: KC -3.0

O/U: 45

Phillip Rivers – He has been on an absolute tear this season and he will be forced to throw the ball in this game since the #Chargers don’t have a running game to speak of.

Antonio Gates – If he is good enough to play, then he has to be in lineups. With no Keenan Allen and Malcolm Floyd’s status looking murky, Gates has to get the bulk of the targets.

Danny Woodhead – Rivers loves this guy and he will be on the receiving end of the bulk of Rivers’ targets.

Stevie Johnson – The #Chiefs are giving up the second most fantasy points to WRs this season

Charcandrick West – The #Chargers give up the most fantasy points to the RB position this season & he has scored four times in the last three games

Travis Kelce – #The Chargers have allowed 7 touchdowns to TEs this season, two last week to #Bears TE Zach Miller. No reason to believe Kielce can’t do the same


Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings

Line: GB -1.0

O/U: 45

This is a must win game for Rodgers and Co. They can’t afford to be two games behind the Vikings in the division. I believe Rodgers will rise to the occasion. The matchup isn’t great, but if Rodgers is as elite as I believe he is, he will find a way to win this game.

Aaron Rodgers – With no running game to compliment the offense, I fully expect Rodgers to throw for majority of the contest.

Randall Cobb – Aaron Rodgers will have to throw to somebody and the matchup isn’t great at all but I’m putting his name for the simply fact that Cobb has had over 10 targets in the last two games.

Richard Rodgers – He is seven red-zone targets this season and could be a red-zone look for Rodgers

Adrian Peterson – He’s AD and he will run havoc on the Packers. ‘Nuff said.

Kyle Rudolph – #Packers have given up a score in the past two games to the TEs and since Rudolph doesn’t really get the ball unless he’s in the end-zone, he’s due for a score.


San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

Line: SEA -13.5

O/U: 40

This is by far highest Vegas line of the week and I agree. Seattle will eat poor Blaine Gabbert for lunch in this game.

Marshawn Lynch – #Niners give up the sixth most fantasy points to RBs and it’s beast mode.

Thomas Rawls – I have a feeling that Seattle will be up quite a bit in the game that they will bench Lynch to rest him & plug in Rawls. We love garbage time stats in fantasy football!


Sunday Night Football Showdown – Cincinnati Bengals at Arizona Cardinals

Line: ARI -4.5

O/U: 48

This is going to be a goooood game.

Gio Bernard – Jeremy Hill has been MIA and it appears that Gio has taken his spot as of now. I expect Dalton to utilize a lot in this game, has the #Cardinals have struggled to contain pass-catching backs

Marvin Jones – History isn’t on my side this game, but with Patrick Peterson slated to be on AJ Green, I expect Jones to lead the team in targets this week and get a score or two.

Larry Fitzgerald – Old faithful. With murky statuses for Floyd and Brown, Fitzgerald will be the guy in this game for Palmer.
