Fantasy Football Bold Predictions Week 11
Week 10 is in the books and now it’s time to look ahead to week 11. The fantasy football playoffs are just around the corner. If you’re like many fantasy owners, you’re looking around for certain players with good playoff schedules to either pick up or trade for. Many teams also know if they’re going to make it to the playoffs or if you’re already out. But some are still trying to claw their way into the playoff talks. Let’s dive into some bold predictions this week that will help you win your fantasy matchup.
Deshaun Watson & Lamar Jackson will combine for 800+ total yards
Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson are two of the most electrifying young quarterbacks in the league right now. Both guys have been red hot this year and look to continue that as they square up against each other this week. Both guys have tremendous arms and can burn you with their legs as well. This week will feature a lot of that in what should be a shootout. These two stud QBs will combine for 800 or more total yards this week and will be the QB1 and QB2 overall in fantasy football for week 11.
Philip Rivers will have 20+ fantasy points
Philip Rivers has struggled the majority of the year. What’s really disappointing is how badly he struggled against a very bad passing secondary last week. The thought would be to bench him and let him ride the pine for your fantasy team, but he’s going to have a monster game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chargers more than likely will be down a lot in this game and Rivers will have to rely on his arms which means lots of fantasy points for you.
Josh Jacobs will be the RB1
Josh Jacobs is easily one of the leading candidates for rookie of the year this year. He’s been a stud for the Raiders and he was a great find in the middle of the draft for fantasy owners. He gets to take on a very weak defense in the Cincinnati Bengals which means it’s feast time for Jacobs. He has a tremendous chance to be the RB1 overall this week for your fantasy team, and that should be the expectation.
Alvin Kamara scores 2 rushing TDs and 1 receiving
Alvin Kamara returned from injury and a bye week last week and the hope was that he was going to return to MVP quality form. That, unfortunately, was not the case. He carried the ball just four times and had only 12 total touches. Not exactly what fantasy owners had in mind. This week will be much different. He’ll get his usual workload back and he will do wonders with it. He will have three total touchdowns, two on the ground and one through the air.
David Montgomery blows up the Rams
David Montgomery has seen his workload increase substantially over the last few weeks. He received 58 total carries in the last three weeks and that type of volume will continue against the Rams on Sunday Night Football. Expect Montgomery to pound the rock against this defense and have his second 100+ yard rushing game. He also will find the end zone twice for your fantasy team.
Chris Godwin torches the Saints
There’s not much hope for the Buccaneers with Jameis Winston throwing the ball against this Saints defense, but he will be able to find Chris Godwin a bunch this week. Godwin, who works primarily out of the slot, will have a great matchup this week and will be able to exploit the mismatch. Winston may not have a good game, but Godwin will be able to make up for Winston’s lacking performance. He will have 150+ receiving yards and will also have at least one touchdown on the day.
Stefon Diggs goes off for 150+ yards
Stefon Diggs and the Minnesota Vikings take on the Denver Broncos in Minneapolis this week. The Broncos still have a fairly tough defense, so the Vikings are going to have to get their bootleg game back to working again. This is going to open up big yards for the one and only Stefon Diggs. He’s going to be catching balls all over the field against this secondary. He’ll have over 150 yards on 10+ catches and one touchdown Sunday.
Mark Andrews with another 20+ game
Mark Andrews has been a stud at the tight end position this year. He’s proof as to why you wait to draft tight ends in your fantasy draft. He put up his first multi-touchdown game last week, and he’s in line for that again. Andrews will find the endzone twice again this week and will also have 50+ yards. He’ll put up another 20+ point game for your team this week and will lead your squad to victory.
