Third and Short Week 11 Fantasy Takes with Wanda and Kate

By Wanda Wiedman and Kate Arhar

Last week Kate and I had a few good picks for you and we hope to have the same this week. At least we know that running back Ezekiel Elliott will be out for six weeks as he came to realize that the cost was too much to continue fighting. And it looks like the Buffalo Bills have chosen to sit out their quarterback Tyrod Taylor and throw in rookie Nathan Peterman. It is never a dull moment in the NFL!

As always, let’s begin with this week’s starts and sits.

There are four teams on a bye this week: Panthers, Colts, Jets and 49ers


QB Carson Wentz: Cowboys defense will struggle Jared Goff:High scoring stats top versus the Vikings defense. QB Derek CarrNE gives up 2nd most points to QBs Phillip Rivers: Downhill slide continues against Bills.
Alex Smith: He should have a monster day. Joe FlaccoPackers defense will pressure all day. Kirk Cousins: Better match-up versus Saints Matt Stafford is 0-5 at Soldier Field. Bears D will prevail.
RB Jerick McKinnon: Rams allowed the 2nd most PPR pts to RB on the road Lamar Miller: AZ has allowed the 7th fewest PPR to RBs. RB Jordon Howard: Lions gave up big points to CLE last week Joe Mixon: Broncos have stuffed the run well at home.
Jay Ajayi: This is the perfect time to release their new toy versus Cowboys Tarik Cohen: He is being utilized as a slot guy than a RB. No longer viable start Marshawn Lynch: Pats allowed 4th most PPR to RBs Alfred Morris: Eagles D just too tough on RBs not named Zeke
WR Michael Crabtree: Great matchup versus Pats defense Sammy Watkins: Vikings allowed 4th fewest PPR pts to wideouts WR Sterling Shepard: Should see high volume against Chief’s secondary. Jordy Nelson: Hudley hasn’t clicked yet with  the vet.
Tyreek Hill: Finally a week for points against Giants D. Marvin Jones: Bears D have limited wideouts at home. Marqise Lee: Should be high points versus soft Browns defense Kelvin Benjamin: Rookie Nathan Peterman at helm.
TE Tyler Kroft: Dalton will need to use him against the Broncos Martellus Bennett: The ‘miraculous healer” will not do much against Raiders D. TE Vernon Davis: Old but keeps on grinding from Cousins throws Charles Clay: Won’t bode well against Chargers defense
Jason Witten: Prescott will need to rely on him versus Eagles defense David Njoku: Jaguars have been stingy against TEs. Cameron Brate: Miami has allowed 5th most to TEs. Eric Ebron: Bears have only allowed 2 TDs to TEs so far.
