Since Alex Gelhar already masterfully recognized among the high waiver wire targets forward of Week 11, Matt Harmon examined high deep league provides in his deep dive, and Marcas Grant equipped you with some gamers that may safely be dropped, it is my job to offer some streaming candidates at quarterback, tight finish and protection for the upcoming slate of video games. Keep in thoughts, most of those gamers/groups are bottom-of-the-barrel targets for deep leagues, and I am not saying they will be high scorers at their place, however they need to do sufficient to maintain your staff aggressive in Week 11 in the event you want some help. So, let’s get to it.
*Ownership proportion information from NFL.com fantasy leagues.
Jay Cutler vs Buccaneers | four.7 p.c owned: In Week 9, Jay Cutler carved up the Raiders secondary to the tune of 311 yards and three touchdowns. He doubtless will not be as productive in opposition to the Panthers on Monday Night Football as Week 10 wraps up, however his matchup in opposition to Tampa Bay in Week 11 supplies a chance for streamable fantasy manufacturing. With a brand new two-man backfield consisting of Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake, the wholesome return of DeVante Parker and the presence of Jarvis Landry, Cutler has many choices to focus on within the pbading recreation (Julius Thomas is round, too). We noticed him use this to his benefit in Week 9, spreading the ball round with some success, and there is a good likelihood he can do it once more versus a Bucs protection that has allowed the fourth-most pbading yards to quarterbacks this yr.
Ryan Fitzpatrick at Dolphins | 12 p.c owned: With Jameis Winston nonetheless sideline with a shoulder damage, the Buccaneers confirmed Monday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will begin once more underneath middle in Week 12 in opposition to Miami. Fitzpatrick was with out his high receiver in Mike Evans in Week 10, however he’ll be again on the sector in opposition to the Dolphins. That ought to enhance Fitzpatrick’s outlook for fantasy functions and not less than give him an enormous physique to focus on in the long run zone. The Buccaneers have had bother operating the ball with the backfield averaging simply 61.four rush yards per recreation since Week 6, so they need to badault the Dolphins by the air because the protection is permitting a median of 221 go yards per recreation to opponents. Miami can be one in all simply 4 groups permitting a pbader score of over 100 this season.
Blake Bortles at Browns | 16.6 p.c owned: Even with Leonard Fournette again on the sector in Week 10, Blake Bortles tried a season-high 51 pbades. While Bortles did throw two picks within the recreation, he nonetheless completed with 16 fantasy factors, marking his third straight recreation with that whole. He has averaged 287 go yards over his final three video games and till Sunday, he had been taking part in effectively in Weeks 6 by 9 with a Three-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio and a 97.6 pbader score. He ought to produce serviceable fantasy numbers in a positive matchup in opposition to a Browns protection that has allowed the second-most landing pbades to quarterbacks this yr (19) and solely has six interceptions on the season.
Eli Manning vs Chiefs | 26 p.c owned: Over his final three video games, Eli Manning is averaging 37 go makes an attempt per recreation. And in every of his final two contests, which have been considerably favorable matchups in opposition to the Rams and 49ers, Manning has managed not less than 220 go yards and thrown two landing pbades with only one interception. Manning has predictably struggled since Odell Beckham Jr. was misplaced to damage in Week 5, however he is posted 12.eight and 16.92 fantasy factors in his final two outings, respectively. The Chiefs have allowed the sixth-most fantasy factors per recreation to opposing quarterbacks this season, so it is one other favorable matchup for Manning and his depleted receiving corps that mainly funnels by Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram. And if the Chiefs put up factors in opposition to a struggling Giants protection, that simply means extra time for rubbish factors from Manning.
Joe Flacco at Packers | four.5 p.c owned: No, Joe Flacco isn’t an inspiring identify to stream at quarterback, however a matchup in opposition to the Packers might imply alternative for him to provide for fantasy homeowners. Flacco has struggled this season, however in Week 9 earlier than the Ravens bye, he collected 261 yards and two touchdowns in opposition to the Titans for 15.14 fantasy factors. It did take him 52 go makes an attempt to get there. Still, the Packers have allowed 931 go yards to opposing quarterbacks over the past 4 weeks, and that features a bye. So that is over 300 go yards per recreation allowed. With the potential return of Danny Woodhead, we might see a unique, extra environment friendly model of Baltimore’s offense than what we have grown used to this season.
Vernon Davis at Saints | 26.Three p.c owned: In the final two video games with out Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis leads the Redskins in targets (20), receptions (11) and receiving yards (148). He noticed 11 targets in opposition to the Vikings final week and receiving an finish zone goal that was defended effectively, however Davis practically hauled it in. Dating again to Week Three, Davis leads Washington in receiving with 447 yards, and that features video games by which Reed performed, albeit in a restricted capability. He’s locked right into a high-volume position with inconsistency in Washington’s receiving corps and is a strong possibility as soon as once more in New Orleans.
Tyler Kroft at Broncos | 14.1 p.c owned: Once once more, Tyler Kroft performed 100 p.c of the Bengals offensive snaps in Week 10. The dude actually did not come off the sector. He solely had one reception however noticed six targets for the second time in his final three video games. The goal quantity is encouraging regardless of the one reception, and if there’s one place the Broncos protection is weak it is to opposing tight ends. Denver is permitting essentially the most yards to the place (746) and tight ends have been focused 17 occasions in opposition to the Broncos, the best mark within the league. If Kroft can see one other 4 to seven targets, he ought to rebound properly in Week 11.
Marcedes Lewis at Browns | Three.5 p.c owned: The Browns have bother stopping tight ends from scoring. Cleveland has allowed touchdowns to tight ends the likes of Jesse James (two), Benjamin Watson, Tyler Kroft (two), Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Kyle Rudolph, Eric Ebron and a two-point conversion to Ryan Griffin. They’re permitting the third-most fantasy factors per recreation to the place this yr, so Marcedes Lewis, who has 11 targets over the past two weeks and 4 touchdowns this season (T-Third most), is a streaming possibility.
Jermaine Gresham at Texans | zero.6 p.c owned: Pending Drew Stanton’s well being, Jermaine Gresham is a deep streaming possibility in opposition to the Texans in Week 11. In the 2 video games that Stanton has began for Arizona, Gresham has collected 10 targets, seven receptions, 87 yards and two touchdowns. Stanton suffered a knee damage final Thursday night time, so there’s an opportunity he is not wholesome sufficient to play Sunday, but when he does, Gresham appears to be his safety blanket.
Austin Hooper at Seahawks | 21.7 p.c owned: The Falcons’ tight finish has seen six targets in every of his final three video games and has scored in two of these three contests. Austin Hooper is at present the TE7 in customary scoring, which is lunacy, however hey, that is the world we reside in. The Seahawks gave up a landing to Jermaine Gresham final week, so who’s to say Hooper cannot hold rolling in Seattle subsequent Monday night time?
Reminder that each the Ravens and Eagles have top-10 fantasy D/ST models, they usually could have been dropped in your league on account of a Week 10 bye. Both have startable matchups in Week 11, so add them to your waiver declare listing if out there.
Detroit Lions D/ST at Bears | 50.9 p.c owned: For the primary month of the season, Detroit’s protection was one of the best in fantasy soccer posting double-digit factors in every of their first 4 video games. Since then, the unit has been inconsistent, however they predictably collected 14 fantasy factors in opposition to the Browns in Week 10 on the heels of 4 sacks, an interception and scoop-and-score fumble restoration by Nevin Lawson on a 44-yard scamper. Next on the docket is a one-dimensional Bears offense that may doubtless attempt to load up Jordan Howard with carries and hope for one of the best. Mitchell Trubisky was sacked 5 occasions in Week 10 in opposition to the Packers and was averaging 128 go yards per recreation earlier than Sunday. The rookie quarterback did throw for 297 yards and a landing in opposition to Green Bay, however Detroit ought to have the ability to restrict his manufacturing in Week 11.
New Orleans Saints D/ST vs Redskins | 29.1 p.c owned: In Week 10, the Saints allowed simply 198 whole yards of offense to the Bills, marking New Orleans second recreation this yr by which they’ve restricted an opponent to underneath 200 yards. During the Saints present seven-game win streak, the protection has allowed simply 14.Three factors per recreation and 255.1 whole yards together with 148 go yards per recreation. The unit has restricted opposing quarterbacks to only three touchdowns and has collected 10 picks over the seven-game stretch. With Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara serving to to dominate time of possession, the Saints protection can keep contemporary and wreak havoc on opponents. Expect extra of the identical in opposition to the Redskins in Week 11.
Atlanta Falcons D/ST at Seahawks | 25.Three p.c owned: The Falcons took benefit of an damage to Tyron Smith that made Dallas’ offensive line a weak point in Week 10. Atlanta racked up eight sacks on Dak Prescott and allowed only one landing and a Three.95 yards per play common to the Cowboys. There’s motive to consider that if Atlanta was in a position to handle a weak point in Dallas’ offensive line, they need to have the ability to badault Seattle’s abysmal line in a similar way. The recreation is in Seattle, and Russell Wilson is a magician at escaping stress, however we’re speaking about streamers right here, people.
