It's Week 11 of the 2018 NFL season, and that means plenty of teams—real and fantasy—are beginning to separate themselves from the pack.

Others are deadlocked in battles for position all over the standings.

If you have some of this week's standouts on your fantasy squad, there's a decent chance you're in that first group. If not, it's still worth keeping an eye on these guys now. Breakouts in these last few weeks of the season could be targets in your draft next year.

Below, you'll find the biggest fantasy star from all of Week 11's matchups as well as up-to-the-minute standings.

T.Y. Hilton

Indianapolis Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton dominated in a 38-10 beatdown of the Tennessee Titans.

He went off for nine catches, 155 yards and two touchdowns, giving him his biggest fantasy performance of the season by a long shot.

The league shared one of the scores:


👻 @TYHilton13 👻 That's SIX! 📺: CBS #Colts https://t.co/LiRt2E2Iay

Hilton came into Week 11 averaging 9.6 fantasy points per game. His 29 on Sunday nearly tripled that and brought his average up to 12.

The win brought the Colts to 5-5 and increased their playoff odds to 25 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight. If they're going to be able to surge all the way into a postseason berth, they'll need more performances like this from Hilton.


Ezekiel Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons exchanged nothing but field goals for the first three quarters of Sunday's game, but the floodgates opened in the fourth quarter.

Ezekiel Elliott's touchdown with just over 12 minutes to go served as an exclamation point for his big performance.

The NFL posted video of the 21-point, game-breaking strike:


.@ezekielelliott... IN! Touchdown, @dallascowboys! 📺: FOX #DallasCowboys https://t.co/fOo1o2cUZ2

Elliott finished the day with 201 yards from scrimmage, seven catches and that score. It was his third performance of the season (and second in the last two weeks) with at least 25 fantasy points.


Saquon Barkley

Elsewhere in the NFC, New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley continued his ridiculous rookie season with 142 rushing yards and three total touchdowns.

The league shared one of his two scores on the ground:


Another one for @SAQUON! 📺: FOX #GiantsPride https://t.co/6Yf5PlNxEo

Barkley is now averaging 25.1 fantasy points per game in point-per-reception formats. Todd Gurley, Alvin Kamara and Melvin Gordon are the only non-quarterbacks averaging more.

Marcus Allen is the only rookie non-quarterback in NFL history who averaged more (minimum 50 touches).


Phillip Lindsay

Barkley isn't the only rookie running back making some waves this season. After another big game from the Denver Broncos' Phillip Lindsay, you might even be able to argue he's his team's best offensive player.

Following Denver's 23-22 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, Lindsay is now averaging 12.2 fantasy points per game, just ahead of Emmanuel Sanders' average of 11.

The NFL posted video of one of Lindsay's two scores, a 41-yard run:


41-yard @broncos TOUCHDOWN for @I_CU_boy! 📺: CBS #BroncosCountry https://t.co/6i8oWG4Xlw

It's been a rough season for the Broncos, but Lindsay certainly has been a bright spot.


Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees continued his red-hot run to (possibly) the first MVP of his career.

After going for 363 yards, four touchdowns and no picks, his season totals are now 2,964 yards, 25 touchdowns and one interception.

The league shared one of his scoring throws from Sunday, a 38-yarder to Alvin Kamara:


On 4th and 7... @DrewBrees to @A_Kamara6 for the touchdown! #GoSaints #PHIvsNO 📺: FOX https://t.co/Nyjb3Ixi1E

Brees' passer rating is now 126.9. The single-season record is Aaron Rodgers' 122.5 in 2011.
