Fantasy Football 2017: Week 11 Rankings (UPDATE)

With only 3 regular season games left for most fantasy football owners, it's truly do-or-die time. Get those lineups optimized with our Week 11 Rankings.

Three games. That’s what sits between most owners and the end of the fantasy football regular season. Some of us need to win out for even a prayer of the playoffs. Others will scrap for byes, while more pathetic owners (myself included in my big league) try to avoid some harrowing last place punishments. Regardless, a win is a near necessity, no matter your spot. Thus, our Week 11 Fantasy Football Rankings are here to help you with all tough lineup decisions.

Fortunately, we only have one stay left in Bye Week Hell. Even better, between Carolina, Indianapolis, New York Jets, and San Francisco, only a few true difference makers will be off the virtual gridiron.  Yet, with an impossible few tiers of RBs and WRs to sort through, Week 11 is going to come down to some coin flip decisions.

As such, for personalized advice, hit me up on SnapChat or Twitter @RotoStreetWolf.  Plus, be sure to tune into our 11:30 AM EST Facebook Live “Fantasy Football Week 11 Preview” Broadcast to have your question answered live.

Lastly, these Week 11 Fantasy Football Rankings will be updated on a rolling basis throughout the week.  As a Scoring Reminder, they are based on 1/2 PPR, 4 Pt Passing TD Scoring




Note – Antonio Brown was my “tier-by-himself” WR1 for Week 11, but something happened with the FantasyPros Rankings platform. He’s already played and dominated as expected.


  • The biggest, and most shocking, news of the day is Sterling Shepard‘s expected to miss Sunday’s gem matchup versus the Chiefs due to migraines. I loved the play enough to call him a “shoo-in” Top-5 WR in Week 11 in my Bold Predictions piece, so this one is going to sting for Shepard owners. In his absence, Evan Engram should see 1000 targets and was already a locked-in TE1, while Tavares King (0% owned, $3,100 on DKings) now becomes an intriguing, cheap and available dart throw. Eli Manning also takes a hit, and the 30 MPH winds do him no favors either.


  • Tyron Smith has officially been ruled out, which boosts the stock of Philadelphia’s defense, and could play a major impact on game flow here. As such, I expect Philly to ultimately be bleeding the clock with a lead, boosting the stock of their RBs. Conversely, Dak Prescott will be playing catch up, though he’ll also be under duress all afternoon, so this is more of a neutralizer. Alfred Morris also takes a hit (down to RB33 now), as he’ll be sidelined in passing situations, while we may get an extended look at Rod Smith. I wouldn’t use him if I didn’t have to, but this could be the week he sees enough work to prove himself for the Rest of Season.


  • Leonard Fournette is going to test out the ankle during warmups, but the team is optimistic he’ll play. Though you can’t bench your RB1 horse, he’s already complained about the cold and the ankle injury is a major cause for concern for an early exit.  UPDATE – He’s active, and has been bumped down to my RB12


  • With Richard Sherman and now Kam Chancellor done for the season, Julio Jones is set up to pay the first round piper. I have a feeling that happens, and I’ve bumped him up accordingly (now WR3). Tevin Coleman is also sneakily helped given Chancellor’s hard-nosed, gap-stuffing ways are now gone.


  • Unearthed some stats on how impactful Marcel Dareus has been against the run this season, which has me lower on Isaiah Crowell now. I could see that them getting blown out and shut out, which limits Crow’s appeal, even if he’s gotten it done before.:


  • Tyrod Taylor has officially been benched, which obviously eliminates him from Week 11 QB consideration and should send him to the Waiver Wire. We’ve been raving about his cake Rest of Season schedule for weeks, so his backup Nathan Peterman is surprisingly stashable right now, especially for 2 QB Leagues. He went 7 for 10 for 79 and a TD in his only NFL action so far, so this could ultimately be a positive for all passing game options if the passing game accuracy can take a leap forward. For now, though, Blaine Gabbert makes the better Week 11 streamer.
