Fantasy Football Big Board: Complete PPR Player Rankings for Week 11

0 of 6

    Phelan M. Ebenhack/Associated Press

    The 2020 fantasy football season has flown by. For some, it has been a thrill ride. For others, a grind. And for some unfortunate fantasy managers, it has been a disaster.

    It has been a typical fantasy season, in that few typical things have happened. While one young quarterback has blown up and made a case for MVP consideration, last year's MVP has disappointed.

    At running back, it has been carnage. Whether it's injuries, underperformers or a combo platter of the two, the top 10 through 10 weeks looks nothing like we expected.

    The presence of an undrafted rookie no one had heard of before August (James Robinson of the Jacksonville Jaguars) confirms that.

    The wide receivers have played out a bit more according to the script, although there has been a curveball or six. The added depth we thought was present at tight end turned out to be a mirage. Kickers did stuff—I think.

    Week 11 brings with it the stretch run of the regular season—and with it must-win games for managers clinging to playoff spots.

    In an effort to help you nail down that badly needed win, here's a set of position-by-position PPR player rankings, along with some analysis of players to target and others to consider avoiding.


1 of 6

    Ross D. Franklin/Associated Press

    So maybe Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray wasn't overvalued in fantasy drafts after all.

    In my defense, what I wrote about Murray has more or less held true through 10 weeks. After his "Hail Murray" pass against the Buffalo Bills, Murray is fantasy's No. 1 quarterback. But he hasn't laid waste to the position quite like Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens in 2019 or Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs the year before.

    At least not yet.

    However, Murray is averaging over 30 fantasy points per game in many scoring systems. He's on pace to top 1,000 rushing yards in 2020. And with a highly favorable fantasy matchup on Thursday against a woeful Seattle defense, Murray is an easy call as the No. 1 signal-caller in Week 11.

    Now it's just a matter of deciding which second-year quarterback is going to go ballistic in 2021.



    Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers (at JAX) (NFL" target="_blank">DraftKings DFS Value: $6,700)

    Roethlisberger is coming off a great game against the Cincinnati Bengals, setting season highs in passing yards (333) and touchdown throws (four). The veteran has a good chance at a second straight big stat line Sunday against a Jaguars team giving up the third-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.


    Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints (vs. ATL) (DraftKings DFS Value: $5,900)

    Winston admittedly wasn't great in relief of Drew Brees in Week 10—six completions in 10 attempts for 63 yards. But that was with the sixth-year veteran coming in cold. He'll have a full week of practice reps to prepare for a top-five fantasy matchup Sunday against the Falcons.



    Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs. LAR) (DraftKings DFS Value: $X,X00)

    For the third time this year, Brady topped 300 passing yards with three or more scores in last week's blowout win in Carolina. The Rams will be a more difficult task—the Los Angeles defense ranks third against the pass and just held Russell Wilson under 250 passing yards without a touchdown.


    Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans (vs. NE) (DraftKings DFS Value: $6,500)

    Watson has been just about the lone bright spot in a dismal season for the Texans. But Watson is on track for a second straight down week against a New England Patriots defense that's as good as any in the NFL at slowing down mobile quarterbacks.



    Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles (at CLE) (DraftKings DFS Value: $5,700)'

    It's been an ugly season for the Eagles, but while style points have been few and far between, Wentz has still been able to manage QB1 numbers in 12-team fantasy leagues. Sunday brings a visit from a Cleveland Browns team that has been kind to opposing quarterbacks much of the season.

Running Backs

2 of 6

    Michael Ainsworth/Associated Press

    Having a high draft pick in fantasy leagues is supposed to be an advantage—a fact that someone apparently forgot to impart unto the year 2020.

    The first three picks in the majority of fantasy leagues in 2020 were all running backs—Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers, Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants and Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Barkley and McCaffrey were both injured in Week 2—the former with a season-ending ACL tear, the latter with a high-ankle sprain. McCaffrey finally made it back on the field in Week 9 and proceeded to suffer a shoulder injury that will reportedly sideline the 24-year-old for multiple weeks.

    As for Elliott, the offensive faceplant that has hit the Cowboys since Dak Prescott got hurt hasn't spared him—nine weeks into the season, a nicked-up Elliott ranks 10th in PPR points per game for the season but outside the top 30 in points per game since Week 6.

    At least Dalvin Cook of the Minnesota Vikings and Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints are playing well.



    Mike Davis, Carolina Panthers (vs. DET) (DraftKings DFS Value: $6,800)

    Davis has admittedly cooled way off after a hot start in relief of McCaffrey—he had just 44 yards on 11 touches last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But if ever there was a spot for Davis to get right, it's in a plus matchup with a Detroit run defense allowing over 141 yards per game on the ground.


    Damien Harris, New England Patriots (at HOU) (DraftKings DFS Value: $5,700)

    Harris lit up the Baltimore Ravens a week ago for 121 yards on 22 carries, solidifying his hold on the title of lead back for New England. That was against one of the better run defenses in the NFL; this week, Harris and the Pats face a Houston Texans team that fields one of the worst.



    Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers (at IND) (DraftKings DFS Value: $7,200)

    It goes without saying (or should) that Jones is a must-start in season-long formats—he's a top-five performer in terms of fantasy points per game. But his high DFS price tag is a waste of salary resources against the Colts and their third-ranked run defense. The Packers are mostly fades in Week 11.


    James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars (vs. PIT) (DraftKings DFS Value: $6,400)

    In a year in which so many running backs have flopped, Robinson has been a godsend for many teams. But the undrafted rookie draws a brutal matchup in Week 11 with a Steelers defense that ranks toward the bottom of the NFL in both rushing yards allowed and PPR points surrendered to running backs.



    Rex Burkhead, New England Patriots (at HOU) (DraftKings DFS Value: $4,600)

    As has already been mentioned, Damien Harris has taken over as the lead back for the Patriots—and looked good doing it. But Burkhead has retained a role as a change-of-pace and passing-down back that led to a two-score outing against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10.

Wide Receivers

3 of 6

    Mark LoMoglio/Associated Press

    Fantasy managers with shares in Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints just can't catch a break.

    First, the top wideout in most drafts this summer hurt his ankle in the opener. Then the single-season record-holder for receptions drew a one-game suspension for punching a teammate. Then, just as Thomas was nearing a return, he pulled his hamstring.

    Now, it appears that Thomas will be without Drew Brees for multiple weeks after the quarterback fractured his ribs Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

    However, before you start sobbing uncontrollably, it's worth noting that with Teddy Bridgewater under center for five starts last year in place of an injured Brees, Thomas led all fantasy receivers in PPR points.

    Keep hope alive—especially this week in a top-five fantasy matchup for receivers with a leaky Falcons secondary.



    Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals (at SEA) (DraftKings DFS Value: $X,X00)

    Obviously, DeAndre Hopkins is a must-start against Seattle's atrocious pass defense. But Kirk is absolutely worth rolling out as well—in Arizona's Week 7 win over the Seahawks, Kirk was targeted eight times, reeling in five passes for 37 yards and a pair of touchdowns.


    Jalen Reagor, Philadelphia Eagles (at CLE) (DraftKings DFS Value: $4,300)

    Reagor quietly had more targets (seven) than any Eagles receiver last week and tied for the team lead with four receptions. He's also the Eagles' best vertical threat headed into a matchup with a Browns defense that has been susceptible to the deep ball in 2020.



    Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals (at WAS) (DraftKings DFS Value: $5,600)

    For the season, Boyd has been excellent—his 60/625/3 line for the season checks in 12th in PPR points among wide receivers. But this has the makings of a down week—no team in the NFL has given up fewer PPR points to wideouts this season than Washington.


    Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs. LAR) (DraftKings DFS Value: $X,X00)

    Evans has picked it up a bit of late, although he's still well off his typical pace for the season. This isn't going to be a good week to make up ground—there may not be a better cornerback in the NFL at bodying up bigger wide receivers like Evans than Jalen Ramsey of the Los Angeles Rams.



    Willie Snead IV, Baltimore Ravens (at TEN) (DraftKings DFS Value: $4,600)

    Snead was a surprise star in Baltimore's Week 10 loss to the New England Patriots, pacing Baltimore in receiving yards (64) and finding the end zone twice. Ten weeks into the 2020 season, no team in the AFC has allowed more fantasy points to receivers than the Tennessee Titans.

Tight Ends

4 of 6

    Charlie Riedel/Associated Press

    Heading into the 2020 season, there were hopes that an influx of young talent at the tight end position would add some depth to what has been fantasy's shallowest position.

    Of course, I hope every week that I'll win Mega Millions, and I'm still broke.

    There are all of two tight ends in fantasy who have averaged at least 15 PPR points per game, and one of those (George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers) is injured and unlikely to play again this season. The gap between the No. 1 active tight end (Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs) and the No. 2 option at the position (Darren Waller of the Las Vegas Raiders) is 5.7 PPR points per game—almost a touchdown.

    However, the gap between Waller and the 10th-ranked tight ends in points per game (Jimmy Graham of the Chicago Bears) is just 2.7 points per game.

    Essentially, there are two classes of fantasy managers where tight ends are concerned.

    The folks who get to roll out Kelce every week—and everyone else.



    Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints (vs. ATL) (DraftKings DFS Value: $4,100)

    From Week 4 to Week 7 last year (with Drew Brees out with a bum thumb), Cook was a top 10 fantasy tight end in terms of PPR points per game. No team has given up more PPR points per game to tight ends this year than the Falcons.


    Austin Hooper, Cleveland Browns (vs. PHI) (DraftKings DFS Value: $3,900)

    Hooper hasn't been a huge factor statistically this year for the Browns—the fifth-year veteran has topped 50 receiving yards just twice this season. It's a plus matchup though—the Eagles are allowing the fourth-most PPR points to tight ends this year.



    Trey Burton, Indianapolis Colts (vs. GB) (DraftKings DFS Value: $3,100)

    Over the past few weeks, it's Burton who has emerged as the top tight end in Indianapolis. However, that's not saying much—the Colts spread the football around a lot. Add in an unfavorable fantasy matchup with the Packers, and Burton is a low-ceiling TE2.


    Darren Waller, Las Vegas (vs. KC) (DraftKings DFS Value: $X,X00)

    Waller was solid against the Chiefs back in Week 7, racking up five catches for 48 yards and a touchdown. But that stat line was more exception than the rule—the Chiefs have been a bottom-10 fantasy matchup for tight ends in 2020.



    Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team (vs. CIN) (DraftKings DFS Value: $3,300)

    Thomas had a decent game last week in Alex Smith's first start—four catches on six targets for a season-high 66 yards. A second straight game with double-digit PPR points is a real possibility against a Cincinnati Bengals team that leads the NFL in points given up to the position.

Kickers and Defenses

5 of 6

    Keith Srakocic/Associated Press

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are the last team left in the NFL that has yet to lose a game, and the Pittsburgh defense deserves more than a little credit for that success.

    Ten weeks into the 2020 season, the Steelers rank sixth in the league in total defense, allowing 318.1 yards per game. The Steelers are one of four teams allowing fewer than 210 passing yards per game. Only two teams have surrendered fewer points per game than the 19.0 the Steelers are allowing.

    Just as they did last year, the Steelers lead the league in sacks, averaging four per game. Pittsburgh is tied for the league lead in takeaways with 17. And in news that should surprise no one, the Steelers are the top fantasy defense in default fantasy scoring.

    With a plus matchup on tap against rookie quarterback Jake Luton and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh is the No. 1 fantasy defense for Week 11 as well—by a mile.



    Greg Zuerlein, Dallas Cowboys (at MIN)

    It has been a rough stretch for the Dallas offense of late, but the Cowboys should have quarterback Andy Dalton back and draw a struggling Minnesota Vikings defense that sits right at the top of the league in fantasy points given up to kickers this season.


    Cleveland Browns Defense/Special Teams (vs. PHI) (DraftKings DFS Value: $3,000)

    The Browns aren't an especially good defensive team from an NFL perspective in 2020. But Cleveland has one of the best edge-rushers in the NFL in Myles Garrett and has had success taking the ball away. The Eagles, conversely, have allowed sacks and had turnover issues all season long.



    Joey Slye, Carolina Panthers (vs. DET)

    Injuries are really starting to take a toll on the Panthers offense, but this has more to do with the matchup than anything. Detroit isn't good defensively, but that has meant more drives culminating in touchdowns—and fewer fantasy points per game for opposing kickers.


    Los Angeles Rams Defense/Special Teams (at TB) (DraftKings DFS Value: $X,X00)

    Most weeks, Aaron Donald and the Rams are a must-start in fantasy. The team is also coming off an excellent outing against the Seahawks—six sacks and three takeaways. But Week 11 brings a second straight tough matchup against a Bucs team that topped 500 total yards and scored 46 points in Week 10.



    Cincinnati Bengals Defense/Special Teams (at WAS) (DraftKings DFS Value: $2,900)

    If you watched any of last week's Steel City stomping, you know the Bengals aren't a good defensive football team. But Washington ranks toward the bottom of the league in a number of offensive categories and sits inside the top five in fantasy points per game allowed to defenses.

Top 100 Overall/Flex Rankings

6 of 6

    Jeff Roberson/Associated Press

    This listing of the top 100 players overall in PPR scoring systems in Week 11 can be of assistance in making flex decisions.

    You will note that quarterbacks are not included here. If you play in a fantasy league that employs superflex spot(s), odds are good you will have a signal-caller in that spot. Even lower-end quarterbacks will likely score more than the wideouts or backs who would be considered in that spot.

    Most of the season, I legitimately could not care less whom my opponent starts in a fantasy matchup. It's just not relevant.

    But now that the stretch run has begun in earnest, it's worth glancing for teams that need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

    If you feel like your squad has a favorable Week 11 matchup, then starting higher-floor fantasy players is the wiser course of action. But if you will be rocking the ol' underdog cape this week, don't be afraid to roll the dice on a high-ceiling "boom/bust" player.

    No guts, no glory.
