Fantasy football Week 11 preview

Fantasy owners already know who their must-start players are, but everyone has a few decisions to make when it comes to setting a lineup. We’re here to help with those tough decisions.

Each week this space will be dedicated to identifying whom you should start or sit for your upcoming fantasy matchups.

Start

Kirk Cousins, QB, Redskins — Cousins had a tough start to the season, throwing just one TD and three picks in the first two weeks. He’s been pretty solid since then, and he’ll face the Packers, the 21st-ranked defense in limiting quarterbacks.

Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks — Wilson finally looked like himself in the win over the Patriots last week. Wilson and Doug Baldwin made a nice fantasy run at the end of last season and could do it again.

Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions — He’s finally playing back at home after three weeks, and he should play well against the Jaguars. They’re not bad at limiting yardage through the air, but they’ve given up 14 passing TDs this year.

Spencer Ware, RB, Chiefs — Not only should Ware have a great week against the Bucs, who are 28th in points allowed to running backs, but his schedule looks great for the fantasy playoffs.

LeGarrette Blount, RB, Patriots — Blount gets to face a dismal 49ers run defense, so he should feast. Expect the Patriots to get ahead early and then hand the reins over to Blount.

Theo Riddick, RB, Lions — It should be a high-scoring game, and that’s good news for a running back who catches passes out of the backfield. The Jags are 20th in points allowed to running backs.

C.J. Prosise, RB, Seahawks — ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that C.J. Prosise will be the starter despite Thomas Rawls returning to action this week. The rookie has been impressive and should start against the Eagles as Rawls gets back into the swing.

T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts — Hilton has literally been good every other game. He had a nice outing against the Packers in his last game, but hopefully the bye week helps him continue the success against the Titans, who are 27th in points allowed to wideouts.

Allen Robinson, WR, Jaguars — He’s trending in a positive direction, scoring a touchdown in two consecutive games. The Lions have given up 20 touchdown passes this season.

Rishard Matthews, WR, Titans — The Colts give up the second-most receiving yards per game, and Matthews has four touchdowns in the last three weeks. It should be a high-scoring game as well.

Michael Crabtree, WR, Raiders — His floor is so high, and he’s had only two bad games all year. Don’t fear the Texans’ defense too much.

Sit

Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals — He’s been a disappointment so far this season. Against the poor 49ers defense last week he was just OK. This week he has to face a Vikings defense on the road that is third in points allowed to quarterbacks.

Jameis Winston, QB, Buccaneers — He has a tough draw in this matchup with the Chiefs on the road. Justin Houston is back for the Chiefs, and they’ve given up no more than 21 points in the last five games.

Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals — Dalton got roughed up against the Giants last week. This week he has to take on the Bills, who are in the top-10 in points allowed to quarterbacks.

Jaguars running backs — There’s no point in flipping a coin on these two. Even if you pick the right one, you’ll be only moderately satisfied.

Darren Sproles, RB, Eagles — He ran the ball just twice after his head coach called him the No. 1 running back last week. He faces a tough Seahawks defense this week, and Ryan Mathews looks as if he’s back in the mix.

Ty Montgomery, WR, Packers — His value took a tumble when it became apparent James Starks would take most of the running back snaps.

Michael Floyd, WR, Cardinals — He faces the Vikings, who are second-best in limiting wideouts. That’s not encouraging for a guy who has scored a goose egg twice this year.

Cole Beasley, WR, Cowboys — I keep doubting him, but it’s very possible the Cowboys could run to a win without throwing that much. The Ravens’ run D isn’t as good as the numbers, as they’ve played the Browns twice and the Jaguars once. Dez Bryant should be your only Cowboys WR starter.
