Week 11 Fantasy Rankings: WR


The last six-team bye of the season claims the 49ers, Browns, Bills, Jets, Dolphins, and Patriots this week, which means, what, three regular starting fantasy wide receivers are out? Unless you have Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman, or Jarvis Landry (who's been a major disappointment this year), you're probably not heading to the waiver wire in search of a one-week streamer pickup. Instead, you're just glancing at our Week 11 fantasy WR rankings and feeling pretty good about your start 'em, sit 'em choices.

Of course, it's not all easy. There are some injuries (A.J. Green, Cooper Kupp, possibly Sammy Watkins and Marvin Jones), as well as as some tough matchups (Steelers facing the Jags, Falcons facing the Cowboys, Bears facing the Vikings). We're still not really sure what to make of Golden Tate with the Eagles and Demaryius Thomas with the Texans, the latter of which could be even more unpredictable this week if Keke Coutee returns to the field. 

Week 11 Rankings:
Quarterback | Running Back | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker

As is the case with receivers every week, big plays will go a long way when determining who had a good game vs. a bad game, which we saw last week with guys like Donte Moncrief and Anthony Miller. These are always tough to predict, so don't worry about our "top 36" or even our "top 50" -- potentially valuable WRs can be found throughout our rankings. Thankfully, this week we get to weed out about four team's worth of guys who usually disappoint.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Rankings: WRs

These rankings are for standard, non-PPR leagues

1 Odell Beckham Jr., Giants vs. Buccaneers
2 Michael Thomas, Saints vs. Eagles
3 Adam Thielen, Vikings @ Bears
4 Brandin Cooks, Rams vs. Chiefs
5 Alshon Jeffery, Eagles @ Saints
6 DeAndre Hopkins, Texans @ Redskins
7 Tyreek Hill, Chiefs @ Rams
8 Davante Adams, Packers @ Seahawks
9 Julio Jones, Falcons vs. Cowboys. The Cowboys allow the third-fewest fantasy points per game (FPPG) to WRs, but Jone has turned in four straight 100-yard games and scored in each of the past two. He'll be just fine.
10 Keenan Allen, Chargers vs. Broncos

11 Antonio Brown, Steelers @ Jaguars. It two games against the Jags last year (one in the playoffs), Brown totaled 17 catches on a whopping 30 targets for 289 yards and two TDs. Both were in Pittsburgh and both featured Pittsburgh trying to come back from large deficits, but we're still not worried about Brown this week.
12 Robert Woods, Rams vs. Chiefs. No Cooper Kupp (ACL) means more targets to go around for the Rams' other receivers. The Chiefs have done a good job limiting WRs lately (25th in FPPG allowed to the position), but the Rams are matchup-proof, and Woods could easily lead the team in targets.
13 Amari Cooper, Cowboys @ Falcons
14 Mike Evans, Buccaneers @ Giants. It's been a quiet couple of weeks for Evans, but we know he and the Bucs offense can strike at any time. The last time the Giants faced as similarly sized receiver, Alshon Jeffery went for 74 yards and two TDs against them.
15 Golden Tate, Eagles @ Saints. Tate disappointed in his Eagles debut, but with three weeks in Philly's system under his belt, we like his chances against a Saints' defense allowing the most FPPG to WRs.
16 Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos @ Chargers
17 T.Y. Hilton, Colts vs. Titans
18 Tyler Boyd, Bengals @ Ravens. The Ravens remain stingy against WRs (seventh-fewest FPPG allowed to the position), but Boyd has actually had the best game of any wideout against them this year (91 yards, TD in Week 2). Now Cincinnati's WR1, there's reason to be concerned, but considering A.J. Green had 69 yards and three TDs in that same game, it's still possible Boyd can pay off. Jimmy Smith didn't play in that game, so don't expect a Green-like performance from Boyd, but his excess targets give him upside.
19 Kenny Golladay, Lions vs. Panthers. Golladay saw 13 targets and scored in Detroit's first Golden Tate-less game, and with Marvin Jones (knee) banged up heading into this week's matchup against the Panthers -- who are still chasing Steelers receivers all over the field -- Golladay should see double-digit targets again.

20 Stefon Diggs, Vikings @ Bears. Diggs missed Minnesota's last game because of a rib injury, but he's expected back this week against a Bears defense that has been mediocre at best against WRs. Diggs has received at least 10 targets in six of his past seven games, giving him plenty of upside against anyone.
21 Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals vs. Raiders
22 JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers @ Jaguars
23 John Brown, Ravens vs. Bengals. Even with Joe Flacco out, we like Brown in a highly favorable matchup that saw him get loose for 92 yards and a TD in Week 2.
24 Sterling Shepard, Giants vs. Buccaneers. Shepard has been up and down all season, but he's come through in favorable matchups, posting 80 yards and a TD against the Falcons, 167 yards against the Saints, and a TD against the 49ers. This week he gets a Bucs defense allowing the second-most FPPG to WRs, so we like him as as W
25 Tyler Lockett, Seahawks vs. Packers
26 Allen Robinson, Bears vs. Vikings. Robinson has scored in each of the past three games he's started and finished, so it's tough to bet against him right now, but Minnesota is allowing the fourth-fewest FPPG to WRs. Outside of a debacle against the Rams in Week 4 in which all three Rams receivers went for 100-plus yards and at least one TD, Minnesota has allowed just two WR touchdowns and no 100-yard receivers. Robinson will get enough targets to have WR3 upside, but he's an obvious risk.
27 Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Packers @ Seahawks
28 Michael Crabtree, Ravens vs. Bengals
29 Devin Funchess, Panthers @ Lions. If Darius Slay (knee) is out again, Funchess might actually be underrated here. Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller both ripped the Lions for over 120 yards and a score last week, so Funchess has upside regardless.

30 Josh Doctson, Redskins vs. Texans. Doctson has scored in consecutive weeks, and while his modest target total (4) against Tampa was disappointing, it's clear he's the top red-zone option and arguably the top overall option for the Redskins in the receiving game. On paper, this is a bad matchup, but Houston has taken advantage of some weak passing games this year, thus inflating its stats. Doctson has a little more upside than you think.
31 Corey Davis, Titans @ Colts. Davis has seen 10 targets in back-to-back games, so the opportunities will be there. Indianapolis got burned for a big play by Donte Moncrief last week, and two different Oakland WRs -- yes, Oakland WRs -- scored against the Colts in Week 8. Davis has been noticeably worse on the road this year (50.3 yards per game, no TDs), and that's why he's only in the WR3 range.
32 Demaryius Thomas, Texans @ Redskins
33 Sammy Watkins, Chiefs @ Rams
34 Doug Baldwin, Seahawks vs. Packers. Baldwin is finally starting to look healthier, and while a short week doesn't figure to be good for his achy knees, the fact it's against a Packers defense allowing the fifth-most FPPG to WRs is a major plus.
35 Calvin Ridley, Falcons vs. Cowboys. Over the past five games, Ridley has just one TD and averaged only 47.2 yards per game. The Cowboys continue to play well against WRs, allowing the third-fewest FPPG to the position. We always like Ridley and the Falcons offense better at home, but he's riskier than usual this week.
36 Willie Snead, Ravens vs. Bengals
37 Tyrell Williams, Chargers vs. Broncos. Williams saw his three-game scoring streak end last week, but his big-play ability remains. Denver has allowed at least one 100-yard WR in four of the past five games, and while Keenan Allen will receive more targets, Williams could pay off with only a few catches. 
38 Donte Moncrief, Jaguars vs. Steelers
39 Maurice Harris, Redskins vs. Texans
40 Courtland Sutton, Broncos @ Chargers. Sutton saw five targets in his first game without Demaryius Thomas. The potential is there for more, but the Chargers have only allowed three WR touchdowns since Week 3, so it's tough to expect huge numbers this week.
41 Brandon LaFell, Raiders @ Cardinals
42 Chris Godwin, Buccaneers @ Giants
43 Dede Westbrook, Jaguars vs. Steelers. Westbrook led the Jaguars with 10 targets last week, and while he hasn't had more than 38 receiving yards in any of his past four games, this is the type of matchup he can exploit. The Steelers have improved against receivers throughout the year, but they allowed 15 catches to similar possession type Jarvis Landry and Willie Snead in Weeks 8 and 9, so Westbrook has more upside in PPR formats.
44 Keke Coutee, Texans @ Redskins
45 Mohamed Sanu, Falcons vs. Cowboys
46 DeSean Jackson, Buccaneers @ Giants
47 John Ross, Bengals @ Ravens. Ross will look to play the role Tyler Boyd played when these teams met in Week 2 and Boyd had 91 yards and a score. If nothing else, he has big-play upside.
48 Christian Kirk, Cardinals vs. Raiders
49 T.J. Jones, Lions vs. Panthers
50 Cole Beasley, Cowboys @ Falcons
51 Anthony Miller, Bears vs. Vikings. Miller won't be able to repeat last week's performance against a much tougher Vikings defense.
52 Nelson Agholor, Eagles @ Saints. The Saints allow the most receptions to WRs, and with Agholor grabbing a team-high seven catches last week, he can pay off in PPR leagues again this week.
53 Tre'Quan Smith, Saints vs. Eagles
54 Josh Reynolds, Rams vs. Chiefs. The Chiefs quietly allow the eighth-fewest FPPG to WRs, but this game has shootout written all over it, and with the way the Rams like to use their receivers in the running game, Reynolds could pad his stats enough to pay off as a WR3.
55 Brandon Marshall, Saints vs. Eagles
56 Mike Williams, Chargers vs. Broncos
57 Adam Humphries, Buccaneers @ Giants
58 David Moore, Seahawks vs. Packers
59 D.J. Moore, Panthers @ Lions
60 Brandon Powell, Lions vs. Panthers
61 Keelan Cole, Jaguars vs. Steelers
62 Taylor Gabriel, Bears vs. Vikings
63 Michael Gallup, Cowboys @ Falcons
64 Allen Hurns, Cowboys @ Falcons
65 Seth Roberts, Raiders @ Cardinals
66 Martavis Bryant, Raiders @ Cardinals
67 Dontrelle Inman, Colts vs. Titans
