Week 11 of the NFL season is here and it’s time for my Fantasy Football plays of the week…

The wide receiver era is officially over for at least this season… I’m officially in love with RB’s and TE’s… They’re like skittles, I can’t get enough them..

Oh, and I’ll just say Bell, Murray and Elliott are must starts every week despite matchup.


QB – Marcus Mariota – I don’t know what more I have to tell you… 17 TD’s in 6 weeks and I think this looks like another high scoring game in Indianapolis too… Go ahead and start Andrew Luck too, but you knew that.

QB – Kirk Cousins – You just saw what the Titans did to the Packers, well the Redskins are next. Washington is 5-3-1 and playing for the post season, expect Captain Kirk to put the pedal to the metal.

RB – Legarrette Blount – The 49ers defense is a fantasy gold mine for RB’s and despite Brady’s return the touches are still there for Blount. The last 4 weeks he’s averaged 19 carries and has 7 TD’s.

RB – Spencer Ware – Clearly the lead dog in Kansas City and hosting a Tampa team that is headed nowhere fast.

WR – Kelvin Benjamin – Expect a high scoring game tonight in Charlotte and Benjamin should find paydirt for the Cats.

WR – Cameron Meredith – He has absolutely ZERO chemistry with Jay Cutler, just like the rest of America, but Cutler has no choice, he has no one else to throw to.

WR – Julian Edelman – It’s been a down year for the PPR machine, but with Gronk hurting I look for a high volume day in San Francisco.

TE – Delanie Walker – He may have played his best game ever last week and he always crushes the Colts. This is a great play.

TE – Julius Thomas – Don’t expect a lot of yards, but expect a score agianst a Lions defense that just can’t seem to stop a tight end this year… I mean not a single one.

TE – Matellus Bennett – Again, Gronk is hurting so his volume should increase.


QB – Dak Prescott – That’s right sit him down. Ravens have the #1 defense in the NFL and I think an emotional letdown looms.

RB – Doug Martin – That Chiefs defense is not to be messed with. It’s the reason they’er 17-2 in their last 19 games.

WR – Kenny Britt – He’s had a nice year in a challenged offense, but don’t trust him in Jared Goff’s first start.

WR – Jordan Matthews – Rookie QB faces the Seahawks defense. You can do better.

TE – Jimmy Graham – The Eagles have given up the 2nd fewest fantasy points to TE’s this year. You can probably do better.


RB – Rashad Jennings

RB – Thomas Rawls

WR – Tyreke Hill

TE – Zach Miller
