Week 11 Fantasy Football Rankings: Projecting the Top Players at Each Position
If you want to win in fantasy football, you need to follow these rankings.
The fantasy football season is starting to come to an end, meaning every week is more important as you try to reach the playoffs. With that in mind, you cannot afford to start a player who is unlikely to give you more than a few points.
This is the last week of byes, so pay attention to your team closely as you try to get the most points possible.
Here are full rankings for every key position in fantasy football.

The most steady performers at the quarterback position are where they should be at the top of the list. Each has a good matchup and should continue the recent great play.
Two average players that should have big days are Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer. The New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots both have mediocre defenses that are in the bottom 10 in both passing yards and touchdowns allowed.
Luck and Palmer have been red-hot lately and will have big games this week. Start them if you have them.

Stevan Ridley might be one the most frustrating fantasy players around, but he is due for a big week. He received 22 carries last week, compared to only five for Shane Vereen and one for Danny Woodhead.
Against a below-average Colts defense, he should thrive.
The same goes for LeSean McCoy, who has had an up-and-down year but will be needed more than ever with rookie quarterback Nick Foles expected to start for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Chris Ivory also sneaks onto the list after some strong runs last week. He is earning himself more playing time on the New Orleans Saints, even if Darren Sproles returns.
There are some suspicious absences on the list. Neither Larry Fitzgerald nor Torrey Smith made the top 20, and they should be benched in your fantasy leagues.
Both are facing tough matchups this week, and Fitzgerald also has to struggle with inconsistent throws at quarterback.
On the other hand, receivers like Darrius Heyward-Bey and Jeremy Maclin have the ability to show what they can do against weaker opponents in Week 11.
Jimmy Graham owners are excited that the tight end is finally justifying his high draft spot. The good news is that this should continue for the near future.
Vernon Davis also falls off the list after not performing from a fantasy perspective for over a month. Against the tough Chicago Bears defense, this will not change.
Greg Olsen should also be able to build off of his 22-point performance last week against the worst pass defense in the NFL. He will prove that last game was not a fluke.
On defense, it is all about finding the best matchup.
A team like the Kansas City Chiefs is likely to allow any opponent to have a good fantasy game.
The Denver Broncos are also a very good team to play this week. They have scored five touchdowns in the last four games and are facing the San Diego Chargers, who have a tendency to turn the ball over.
Of course, the Chicago Bears will remain on top regardless of opponent. They have not scored fewer than nine points all season, and that should not end this week.
