Bouncing Back – Fantasy Football Aww’s And Naw’s Week 11

Aww Quarterbacks

Kyle Allen, Carolina Panthers (home vs. Atlanta Falcons) – Since taking over the starting quarterback position in week three, Allen has only played at home twice. He will feel comfortable at home against the Falcons and put up good numbers.


Nick Foles, Jacksonville Jaguars (away vs. Indianapolis Colts) – This is a straight up “gut” feeling. If you own Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers, a healthy Foles along with his good wide receivers would be a nice bye week replacement.



Naw Quarterbacks

Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams (home vs. Chicago Bears) – The running game is not up to par and Goff is struggling to get the ball to his main wide receivers. I would avoid him this weekend against the Bears.


Jacoby Brissett, Indianapolis Colts (home vs. Jacksonville Jaguars) – Don’t expect huge fantasy numbers from Brissett this weekend coming off an injury and not having star wideout T.Y. Hilton for the second straight week.



Aww Running Backs

Damien Williams, Kansas City Chiefs (home vs. Los Angeles Chargers) – Looks like Williams has regained the featured running back role. He has a favorable matchup against the Chargers in Mexico City. The Chargers defense have allowed an opposing running back to score in six games in a row.


Brian Hill, Atlanta Falcons (away vs. Carolina Panthers) – The Panthers’ defense has allowed the third highest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season as well as 13 total touchdowns. Hill should have a heavy workload this weekend.



Naw Running Backs

David Johnson, Arizona Cardinals (away vs. San Francisco 49ers) – Last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Johnson did not look healthy at all, rushing for only two yards. Do not be surprised if Kenyon Drake is the leading running back against the Niners and Johnson plays very little.


Sony Michel, New England Patriots (away vs. Philadelphia Eagles) – Michel has a tough road matchup against the Eagles, who have allowed just six touchdowns to opposing running backs this season.



Aww Wide Receivers

Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals (away vs. Oakland Raiders) – Boyd is getting the targets, just not enough catches. He has a good matchup in Oakland this weekend with quarterback Ryan Finley looking his way.


Terry McLaurin, Washington Redskins (home vs. New York Jets) – I am a bit leery with rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins under center but this could be a big game for McLaurin against the Jets. The Jets’ defense has allowed nine touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in their past five games.



Naw Wide Receivers

Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals (away vs. San Francisco 49ers) – Kirk will come back to earth from his fantasy dream stats last week against the Buccaneers. In week nine against San Francisco, Cousins was held to two catches for eight yards on five targets.


Sammy Watkins, Kansas City Chiefs (away vs. Los Angeles Chargers) – Watkins is averaging almost nine targets in his last three games but not enough production to stay fantasy relevant. He also has not scored a touchdown since week one.



Aww Tight Ends

Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints (away vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – Quarterback Drew Brees is back and Cook is finally getting the targets he wants to put up big numbers.


O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs. New Orleans Saints) – After a disappointing first seven games, it was good to see Howard get a touchdown last week against the Cardinals. Hopefully he will continue the hot hand this weekend against the Saints.



Naw Tight Ends

Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins (away vs. Buffalo Bills) – The Bills’ defense has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season and Gesicki has not score a touchdown yet this year.



Aww Team Defense

Oakland Raiders (home vs. Cincinnati Bengals) – This may be the only time you would want to start the Raiders’ defense this season. Take advantage of Cincinnati Bengals’ newly starting quarterback Ryan Finley.



Naw Team Defense

Houston Texans (away vs. Baltimore Ravens) – Ravens’ quarterback Lamar Jackson is playing out of his mind with over 700 yards rushing. They won’t be able to stop the running game.
