It’s hard to believe it’s already week 11 of the Fantasy football season, but now it’s crunch time as teams are looking to make the leap to the playoffs, or stay in their race in many of their leagues.
Today here’s some players to look to start for week 11 starting tonight with the Panthers and Saints.
QB Marcus Mariota Titans
Mariota has been red hot at the QB spot as of late, going off for at least 20 Fantasy points in six games in a row, including at least 30 points in four of those outings. This week he’s going up against the Colts, and should be able to hit about 20-23 points, which means he again is a good start in Fantasy, as the last time he played Indy back in week seven, he threw for 232 yards and two scores with 14 rushing yards.
RB Jonathan Stewart Panthers
The Panthers lead rusher starts the week tonight against the Saints, a team that has issues stopping the run. He’s been solid against the Saints, with at least 80 yards and a touchdown in three of his past four meetings, which should serve him well in the game this evening against New Orleans. The Saints are among the league leaders with 14 touchdowns allowed to running backs this season. Look for Stewart to have a good night this evening.
WR Jamison Crowder Redskins
Even if the Redskins get DeSean Jackson back this week, that shouldn’t mean anything for Crowder, who should be able to put up points against the Packers secondary. Sunday against the Vikings, Crowder had four catches for 37 yards and a touchdown, and he’s on a good pace with a touchdown in five games this season. He should have good success against a Green Bay secondary that allowed four touchdown passes last week to Titans QB Marcus Mariota.
TE Martellus Bennett Patriots
Bennett will be the go-to guy this week as Rob Gronkowski is out for the Pats. Since Tom Brady has been back in the Pats lineup, Bennett has been up and down like those that can play Australian games online, catching three TD’s against the Browns, and in three games against the Seahawks, Bengals and Steelers basically doing nothing. We’re willing to bet that this week as the number one guy he will have a big week, and should put up good numbers against the Niners, a team that’s won one game.
Defense Steelers at Browns
The only winless team in the NFL has another tough task this week taking on a Steelers team that is none too happy about losing four in a row. The Browns have allowed eight sacks in the past two games with just 17 points scored, and this week should be much of the same, as the Steelers should be able to take advantage of the Browns woeful offensive line, and the Steelers love to pick on their AFC North rival and should be able to do it with sacks and maybe even a defensive score Sunday.
