We officially have a Tony Pollard problem. We've actually had a Pollard problem for a while, but it was masked by good games early in the season and then some tough matchups as the year went on. But now we're at a crossroads heading into Week 11 at Carolina.

Pollard started the season with at least 15.1 PPR points in each of his first three games, which was great, and it was easy to justify drafting him as a top-15 overall pick in the majority of leagues. But from Week 4 on, Pollard topped 9.3 PPR points only once, and the frustrations began to mount for Fantasy managers.

Sure, you could say he played at San Francisco in Week 5 and at Philadelphia in Week 9, and those matchups have been brutal for most running backs. But what about the Giants in Week 10 when he scored just 5.5 PPR points? That game was troubling, especially the talk afterward when it came to Rico Dowdle.

The No. 2 running back in Dallas had 12 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown against the Giants, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was full of praise for Dowdle. Uh oh.

"He's a violent runner," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "He runs with great skill. ... I'm so proud for him. He's finally put together the running back he can be."

Then came this.

"It just really gives us a one-two punch in there," Jones said.

Now, I wouldn't expect Dowdle to take Pollard off the field for significant stretches. Most of what Dowdle did against the Giants came in garbage time. But clearly Dowdle is making an impression, while Pollard is failing to live up to the hype.

So what should Fantasy managers do in Week 11 against Carolina? I'm starting Pollard with confidence. This is a dream matchup against the Panthers, who are No. 2 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Eight running backs have scored at least 15.4 PPR points against Carolina, and the Panthers lead the NFL with 15 touchdowns allowed to running backs.

Dowdle should be added in all leagues. He's a good stash candidate and an excellent handcuff, and we'll see if he gets more work moving forward. But I'm hopeful that Pollard has a productive game against the Panthers. He's due, and the matchup suggests he'll deliver in a big way.

Brock Purdy got all his friends back healthy in Week 10 at Jacksonville, and he had a monster game with 29.8 Fantasy points. It's nice when Trent Williams, Deebo Samuel, Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle are all on the field together, and Purdy clearly benefits in a big way when he's surrounded by all of that talent.

Purdy should stay hot in Week 11 against Tampa Bay. He loves playing at home and has scored at least 20.3 Fantasy points in all four games in San Francisco this season, with an average of 25.5 Fantasy points per game over that span.

Going back to last year, he also has at least 20 Fantasy points in all seven home games that he's started for the 49ers. One of those was his first ever NFL start in Week 14 against Tampa Bay, and Purdy was 16-of-21 passing for 185 yards and two touchdowns, along with a rushing score, for 25.7 Fantasy points.

He should have the chance to light up the Buccaneers again, and Tampa Bay has allowed three of the past five opposing quarterbacks to score at least 26.4 Fantasy points. For the season, the Buccaneers allow 21.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks.

I like Purdy as a top-10 Fantasy quarterback in Week 11. He's at home, he's facing a favorable and familiar opponent, and he has all his weapons healthy to help him have another dominant performance in this scoring period.

Before we get into the rest of this week's Start 'Em & Sit 'Em, check out where Purdy ranks in Heath Cummings' full Week 11 projections for multiple Fantasy formats over at SportsLine.

I've gotten some questions asking about starting Stroud over guys like Lamar Jackson and Justin Herbert for Week 11, and I would do that. Stroud is a top-five quarterback for me against the Cardinals. For starters, he's playing great with 826 passing yards, seven total touchdowns and one interception in his past two games against Tampa Bay and Cincinnati. And his matchup against Arizona is excellent since the Cardinals are No. 8 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, with five teams scoring more than 20.3 points against them this season.

Goff had a rare stellar road game in Week 10 at the Chargers with 25.1 Fantasy points, and it might just be time to start him every week, no matter where he plays. At home, he's been a Fantasy star with an average of 24.3 Fantasy points per game in four outings, and I expect him to thrive against the Bears, who allow an average of 21.5 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. In two home games against Chicago as a member of the Lions, Goff is averaging 22.6 Fantasy points, and he has top-five upside in Week 11 based on how he's playing this season.

Dobbs had another big game in Week 10 against New Orleans with 27.1 Fantasy points, and he's now scored at least 26.9 Fantasy points in three games in a row, including two as a member of the Vikings. We might get lucky and Justin Jefferson (hamstring) returns in Week 11 to further enhance Dobbs' receiving corps, but he's thriving right now even without Jefferson. Dobbs has become an elite running quarterback with a rushing touchdown in four games in a row, and he now has seven games this season with at least 41 rushing yards. He should be considered a top-10 Fantasy quarterback in all leagues against the Broncos, who are No. 5 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks this year.

My only concern for Howell this week is the potential for a lack of volume given the Giants inability to score. But hopefully the Commanders continue to let Howell throw at will because that's resulted in plenty of Fantasy production of late. He comes into Week 11 with three games in a row with at least 44 pass attempts and 312 passing yards. In two of those outings, Howell has thrown at least three touchdowns and scored at least 30.2 Fantasy points. Howell only has two terrible Fantasy games so far this season, and one was at the Giants in Week 7 when he had 249 passing yards, no touchdowns and one interception, along with 15 rushing yards, for 9.5 Fantasy points. I expect a much better performance this week against a lackluster opponent, and the Giants just allowed 404 passing yards and five total touchdowns to Dak Prescott in Week 10.

Murray played well in his return to action in Week 10 against Atlanta, and his comeback from last year's ACL tear should be a successful one. While he only scored 17.3 Fantasy points against the Falcons, Marquise Brown and Michael Wilson could have caught touchdowns to make Murray's stat line look dramatically better. The exciting thing for Murray was he ran for 33 yards and a rushing touchdown, and his rushing prowess is a big key to his Fantasy success. I like him as a low-end starter this week against the Texans in a potential shootout with C.J. Stroud, and Houston has allowed Baker Mayfield and Joe Burrow to each score at least 23 Fantasy points in the past two weeks.

I'm putting Fields in the sleeper section because I'm slightly concerned about his situation in Week 11 at Detroit. He missed the past four games with a thumb injury, and hopefully there's no rust from the layoff. While the Lions are No. 10 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, I still view this as a tough defense to face on the road. That said, it's great to have Fields back, and prior to his injury in Week 6 against Minnesota he scored at least 35.9 Fantasy points in consecutive games. Consider Fields a low-end starter in all leagues and hopefully he's back to 100 percent for the rest of the season.

Despite not passing for 200 yards in five games in a row, Wilson has become a somewhat reliable Fantasy quarterback with three outings of at least 22.7 points. He's running again with at least 30 rushing yards in four of his past five outings, and it's fun to have Wilson back as a low-end starting Fantasy quarterback in the majority of leagues. He doesn't have an easy matchup in Week 11 against Minnesota since the Vikings have held five quarterbacks in a row to fewer than 19 Fantasy points. But I still like Wilson to deliver a quality stat line at home, so you can trust him once again if needed.

Love snapped a five-game streak of scoring 19 Fantasy points or less in Week 10 at Pittsburgh when he scored 20.7 points. His weapons are finally healthy, which is a plus, and hopefully he can take advantage of this great matchup against the Chargers. The only quarterbacks who failed to score at least 23 Fantasy points against the Chargers this season are Aidan O'Connell, Tyson Bagent and Zach Wilson, and Love has the chance for a quality outing in Week 11. He's my favorite streaming quarterback for this scoring period.

I hope Lawrence surprises us this week against Tennessee and has a big Fantasy performance because this season has been a bust so far. He's scored more than 20 Fantasy points just twice, with a high of 21.7, and he's coming off a disastrous game against San Francisco with 2.1 Fantasy points. The Titans haven't been the layup we expected this season, and only three quarterbacks have scored more than 20 Fantasy points. Lawrence also has five touchdowns and five interceptions in four career games against Tennessee. Until he starts putting together consecutive games of quality Fantasy performances, keep Lawrence on your bench in most one-quarterback leagues.

Smith ended his slump of six games in a row with 17.9 Fantasy points or less in Week 10 against Washington when he scored 28.1 points in a 29-26 victory. Smith had a season-high 47 attempts, which resulted in a season-best 369 yards, and he didn't have an interception for the first time since Week 4. This week, he gets a rematch with the Rams, who held him to 11.1 Fantasy points in Week 1. He should perform better than that in Week 11, but Smith has scored fewer than 12 Fantasy points in three consecutive road games at the Giants, Bengals and Ravens. I would only start Smith in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues in this matchup.

It's great to have Stafford back after he missed Week 9 with a thumb injury, and hopefully he continues to connect with Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua. But despite two standout receivers, Stafford only has one game this season with more than 20 Fantasy points. We'll need to see him perform at a high level on a consistent basis before trusting him in one-quarterback leagues, and the Seahawks held him to 14.5 Fantasy points in Week 1. In three career games against Seattle as a member of the Rams, Stafford has yet to score 20 Fantasy points, and I expect him to be under that total again in Week 11.

Mayfield has become a solid Fantasy quarterback heading into Week 11 at San Francisco. He's scored at least 22.3 Fantasy points in three games in a row against Buffalo, Houston and Tennessee, and it's been fun to watch. But this is a tough week to trust Mayfield against the 49ers on the road. San Francisco just suffocated Trevor Lawrence for 2.1 Fantasy points, and this improved 49ers pass rush with Chase Young should make Mayfield uncomfortable. He's also dealing with a bad thumb, although he's expected to play through it, but it's just another negative for Mayfield in Week 11. I would only start him in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues.

Most Fantasy managers won't be sitting Burrow in one-quarterback leagues in Week 11, which is understandable. He's back to form with at least 23.9 Fantasy points in three games in a row, including two consecutive outings with at least 347 passing yards against Buffalo and Houston. But now he has to face the Ravens on the road, and Baltimore is No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Burrow, while still dealing with his calf injury, only scored 19.4 Fantasy points against the Ravens in Week 2. But he's now been held to fewer than 20 Fantasy points in three games in a row against Baltimore going back to last season, and Tee Higgins (hamstring) remains out for Thursday's contest. It's hard to bench Burrow in Week 11, but don't expect a huge stat line given this matchup on the road.

Robinson didn't have a great game against the Giants in Week 7 with eight carries for 23 yards, but he scored a touchdown. He's been touchdown dependent for most of the season, and he has a touchdown in four of his past five games. In Week 10 at Seattle, we saw him more involved as a receiver with six catches for 119 yards and a touchdown on six targets, and it's good to see him doing other things in the offense. The Giants have allowed a running back to score a touchdown in four games in a row, and Robinson should follow suit. He's a solid No. 2 running back in all leagues in Week 11.

It was discouraging to see Jones struggle in Week 10 at Pittsburgh with 13 carries for 35 yards and four catches for 19 yards on six targets, but I'm going right back to him in Week 11 against the Chargers. He has four catches in three games in a row and 17 targets over that span, and this is a favorable matchup since the Chargers are No. 4 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Nine running backs have scored at least 13 PPR points against the Chargers this season, including Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery in Week 10 when both Lions running backs combined for 26 carries for 193 yards and three touchdowns and three catches for 35 yards on five targets.

De'Von Achane (knee) is expected to return this week for the Dolphins after being out for the past four games, and we'll see how much he's used right away. I still expect the Dolphins to give Mostert plenty of work, and he should be able to perform like a quality No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues. Mostert only has three games this season with fewer than 13 PPR points, and he has a rushing touchdown in consecutive games against the Patriots and Chiefs. The Raiders are No. 8 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and five running backs in the past six games have scored at least 13.6 PPR points against Las Vegas. There's plenty of room here for both Achane and Mostert to be dominant at home.

I don't particularly love the matchup for Williams against the Vikings, but it's hard to ignore what he's done lately. In his past three games against the Packers, Chiefs and Bills, he has at least 18 total touches and three catches. His involvement in the passing game is solid, and he caught a touchdown in each of his past two outings against Kansas City and Buffalo. Only four running backs have scored at least 13.4 PPR points against Minnesota this season, and three of them (D'Andre Swift in Week 2, Christian McCaffrey in Week 7 and Alvin Kamara in Week 10) had at least three catches. Williams is worth starting as a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

I loved that Conner came back from his four-game absence with a knee injury in Week 10 against Atlanta and immediately got 16 carries, which he turned into 73 yards. I didn't like that he had no targets, and hopefully that's not a sign of things to come. This week, Conner is worth using as a No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues against the Texans, who have allowed a running back to score at least 12.5 PPR points in four of their past five games, including two in a row with Rachaad White and Joe Mixon. This game should be a high-scoring affair, and Conner should have the chance for a quality performance.

Ford and Kareem Hunt will be the focal point of the Browns offense with Deshaun Watson (shoulder) now out for the season. And Ford is worth using as a No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues against the Steelers.

The Steelers have allowed a running back to score at least 13.6 PPR points in four of their past five games, including three rushing touchdowns over that span. Hunt can be considered a flex option this week, and he has six rushing touchdowns in his past five games.

We don't expect Alexander Mattison (concussion) to play this week, which should allow Chandler the chance to start for the Vikings in a dream matchup against Denver. The Broncos are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and eight running backs have scored at least 14 PPR points against Denver this season, including Latavius Murray and James Cook in Week 10. Chandler came on for an injured Mattison in Week 10 against New Orleans and had 15 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown, and I like him as a low-end No. 2 running back in all leagues in Week 11.

While Keaton Mitchell is definitely the flashy new toy, and hopefully he continues to get more work moving forward, don't forget about the Gus Bus. Edwards remains the lead running back for the Ravens, and he has seven rushing touchdowns in his past four games, including three outings over that span with at least 17.2 PPR points. He already had a solid game against the Bengals in Week 2 with 10 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown, and Cincinnati has allowed a running back to score at least 12.7 PPR points in five of its past six games, including five rushing touchdowns over that span. Edwards is worth starting as a No. 2 running back in all leagues, and Mitchell is a flex option. He's turned 14 total touches over the past two games against Seattle and Cleveland into 34 PPR points, which is amazing.

We'll give Singletary the chance to be a flex option this week against the Cardinals after his breakout game against the Bengals in Week 10 when he had 30 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 11 yards on two targets. Just keep in mind that prior to that the Texans had two games all season where a running back had more than 10 PPR points, and both of them were by Dameon Pierce. We don't know if Pierce (ankle) will return in Week 11 after missing the past two games, and if he's back then it's hard to trust Singletary. But this is a great matchup since the Cardinals are No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs this season.

This should be the final game for Henderson and Royce Freeman to split the role as the best running backs for the Rams with Kyren Williams (ankle) eligible to return in Week 12. I like Henderson better than Freeman given his production in the passing game, and Henderson has scored at least 11.5 PPR points in two of three games since Williams went down. Seattle has allowed six running backs to score at least 11.5 PPR points in the past four games, and Williams had 17.4 PPR points against the Seahawks in Week 1. Henderson should be considered a borderline starter in all leagues in this matchup, with Freeman as a potential flex option.

Cook had a wild game in Week 10 against Denver. He lost an early fumble and was seemingly benched as punishment. When he was in the game, he ran well with 12 carries for 109 yards and two catches for 11 yards on two targets. But he also had another fumble that he recovered and was part of a botched exchange with Josh Allen. He ended up with 12 PPR points, which was just the second time in his past six outings with more than 8.3 PPR points, and I would only use him as a flex in Week 11 against the Jets. Cook scored 10.3 PPR points at the Jets in Week 1 with 12 carries for 46 yards and four catches for 17 yards on six targets, and that's a likely stat line if he doesn't score a touchdown. Considering he has two total touchdowns this year, and the Jets have allowed just five total touchdowns to running backs, I'd be cautious about starting Cook in most leagues this week.

I liked Harris last week against the Packers, and he delivered his best Fantasy outing of the season in Week 10 with 18.6 PPR points. He's now scored a touchdown in three of his past four games, and hopefully he can finish the season strong. But I don't love this matchup for Harris, who had only 10 carries for 43 yards and one catch for no yards on three targets against Cleveland in Week 2. The Browns are No. 6 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and Harris continues to share work with Jaylen Warren. I would use both Steelers running backs as flex options in Week 11, but don't expect a great performance against a standout Browns run defense.

Khalil Herbert (ankle) is expected to return in Week 11, and we'll see how the Bears use Herbert in tandem with Foreman. Roschon Johnson could also remain in the mix, and this could be a messy backfield in Chicago. Foreman has done well filling in for Herbert and has two games with at least 17.2 PPR points in his past four outings. But Foreman also had at least 19 total touches in three of his past four games, and that's not likely to happen with Herbert back. Along with that, the Lions are No. 5 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and Foreman will likely struggle to find running room against Detroit. At best, Foreman and Herbert are flex options in Week 11, but both could lose rushing production to Justin Fields (thumb) as well in his return.

We'll see how much longer Hubbard remains in the lead running back role for the Panthers, but he's struggled just as much as Miles Sanders. In his past three games, Hubbard has averaged 6.0 PPR points against Houston, Indianapolis and Chicago, and he only has one touchdown on the season. The Cowboys are No. 7 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and Hubbard and the entire Panthers offense will be tough to trust in this matchup. Hubbard is a desperation flex option at best in Week 11.

Pacheco comes off his bye to face an Eagles defense that is among the best in the NFL at stopping the run. Philadelphia is No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and only three guys all season (Rhamondre Stevenson in Week 1, Brian Robinson Jr. in Week 4 and Breece Hall in Week 6) have scored at least 13.1 PPR points. The Eagles have also allowed just two total touchdowns to running backs this season. Pacheco has struggled of late with 6.7 PPR points against Denver in Week 8 and 6.6 PPR points against Miami in Week 9. He still has the potential to be a No. 2 running back in all leagues, but I would consider him a low-end starter at best in this matchup. And if you can sit Pacheco it might be a good idea given how well Philadelphia's defense has done against opposing running backs this season.

Hopefully the healthy return of Matthew Stafford (thumb), along with a rematch against Seattle, will get Nacua back on track in Week 11. He had a rough two games prior to the Rams bye in Week 10 with consecutive stinkers against Dallas in Week 8 (7.3 PPR points) and Green Bay in Week 9 (6.2 PPR points). Prior to that, Nacua scored at least 12.2 PPR points in all but one of his first seven NFL games. He burst on the scene in Week 1 at Seattle with 10 catches for 119 yards on 15 targets, and hopefully we can get a repeat outing like that. Of course, Cooper Kupp was out for that matchup, so Nacua should only be considered a No. 2 Fantasy receiver this week. Seattle has allowed 12 receivers to score at least 12.1 PPR points this year, including four duos in the same game (Nacua and Tutu Atwell in Week 1, Josh Reynolds and Amon-Ra St. Brown in Week 2, Adam Thielen and D.J. Chark in Week 3 and Tyler Boyd and Ja'Marr Chase in Week 6), which bodes well for Nacua and Kupp in Week 11.

Nico Collins (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, and it appears like he's going to play in Week 11 against Arizona. But I'm still starting Dell with confidence in all leagues. We'll see what happens with Noah Brown and Robert Woods, but Dell is locked in as a top target for C.J. Stroud, especially based on his performance over the past two games against Tampa Bay and Cincinnati. He has 25 targets over that span for 12 catches, 170 yards and three touchdowns, and he has now scored at least 18.9 PPR points in the four games where he's had at least seven targets this year. The Cardinals have allowed nine receivers to score at least 14 PPR points this season, and Dell is a good candidate to make it 10 after Week 11.

We like trends, and No. 1 receivers have beat up the Giants for most of the season. Aside from CeeDee Lamb in Week 1 and Davante Adams in Week 9, the No. 1 receiver against the Giants -- Marquise Brown in Week 2, Deebo Samuel in Week 3, DK Metcalf in Week 4, Tyreek Hill in Week 5, Stefon Diggs in Week 6, McLaurin in Week 7, Garrett Wilson in Week 8 and Lamb in Week 10 -- has either caught a touchdown or gained at least 90 yards. Seven of those receivers have scored at least 15 PPR points, including McLaurin, who had six catches for 90 yards on nine targets in Week 7. McLaurin has scored at least 13 PPR points in five games in a row against the Giants as well.

I'm going right back to trusting Johnson in Week 11 despite his down game in Week 10 against Green Bay with one catch for 17 yards on four targets. The Steelers were dominant running the ball against the Packers, but that isn't expected to happen against the Browns. Johnson should get back to seeing at least six targets, and he's scored at least 12.9 PPR points in three of four games with that many passes in his direction. Cleveland has allowed five receivers in the past four games to score at least 12.3 PPR points, and Johnson is worth trusting as a No. 2 receiver in PPR. As for George Pickens, I'm still only starting him in deeper, three-receiver leagues since he's scored 9.2 PPR points or less in three games in a row.

Brown should have caught a touchdown in Week 10 against Atlanta, but the ball fell out of his hands on a diving attempt in the end zone. He finished the first game with Kyler Murray this season with one catch for 28 yards on four targets, but I'm going to start him again in Week 11 as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. The Texans have allowed seven receivers to score at least 12.7 PPR points in the past four games, including three No. 1 receivers (Chris Olave in Week 6, Adam Thielen in Week 8 and Ja'Marr Chase in Week 10) to score at least 15.2 PPR points over that span. This is a big bounce-back spot for Brown in Week 11, and I also like Rondale Moore and Michael Wilson as sleepers.

Rice comes off his bye in Week 10 with a fantastic matchup in Week 11 against the Eagles, who are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. There have been 18 receivers to score at least 12.3 PPR points against Philadelphia this year, and Patrick Mahomes will hopefully start to lean more on Rice moving forward to help Kansas City's passing game. Prior to the bye, Rice scored at least 11.2 PPR points in three of his past five games, with three touchdowns over that span. I like him as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues against the Eagles.

Smith-Njigba cooled off in Week 10 against Washington with only four catches for 53 yards on five targets. Prior to that, he scored at least 12.3 PPR points in three games in a row, and I hope he gets back to that level in Week 11 against the Rams. DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are still the top two Fantasy receivers for the Seahawks, and both are dominating targets, which makes sense. But Smith-Njigba can still be a serviceable No. 3 Fantasy receiver in this matchup. The Rams have allowed four receivers to score at least 12.9 PPR points in their past three games.

Cooks is coming off a huge game in Week 10 against the Giants with nine catches for 173 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets, but he's been playing well of late and should be considered a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. He's now scored a touchdown in three of his past four games, and hopefully Dak Prescott continues to give Cooks more targets moving forward. This week, I hope Prescott and the passing game stays hot for the Cowboys against the Panthers, who should struggle to slow down almost anything Dallas wants to do offensively.

Johnston and Jalen Guyton are both in play this week as No. 3 Fantasy receivers in deeper leagues. Both are coming off productive outings in Week 10 against the Lions, and both should be popular targets for Justin Herbert. Against Detroit, Johnston had four catches for 34 yards and a touchdown on four targets, and he also drew two long pass interference calls. Guyton had four catches for 41 yards and a touchdown on six targets, and both receivers are now pressed into action with Mike Williams (knee) and Josh Palmer (knee) out, along with Gerald Everett (back) now injured. The Packers have a tough secondary, but I still expect Johnston or Guyton to step up, with Herbert in need of help in the passing game aside from just Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler.

That's now three games in his past four outings with at least 11.1 PPR points, including two touchdowns over that span, and I trust Reed more than Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs at this point. The Packers have a favorable matchup against the Chargers in Week 11, and Los Angeles is No. 6 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. There have been 10 receivers with at least 13 PPR points against the Chargers this year, and Reed seems like the best bet to reach that total of Green Bay's receivers this week. He's worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in deeper leagues in Week 11.

Week 8 is starting to look more and more like a fluke with each passing week for Hopkins and Will Levis, and it's hard to trust Hopkins as anything more than a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in the majority of leagues. In Week 8 against Atlanta, Hopkins went off for four catches for 128 yards and three touchdowns on six targets in Levis' NFL debut. Since then, Hopkins has combined for seven catches for 87 yards and no touchdowns on 19 targets. Keep in mind the Falcons game was the first time all season where Hopkins found the end zone and just the third time all year where he scored more than 10.5 PPR points. The Jaguars matchup isn't terrible, but Levis' ability to find Hopkins consistently might be, which is why you should be concerned with Hopkins in Week 11.

He has 12 targets over that span for six catches and 70 yards and no touchdowns, and he only has one touchdown this year. Godwin is still worth starting in three-receiver PPR leagues, but he doesn't have a high ceiling. The 49ers matchup isn't daunting, but Baker Mayfield should struggle with San Francisco's pass rush. I'm still trusting Mike Evans as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in the majority of leagues, but Godwin remains risky in this matchup given his body of work this year.

He's been held to 50 receiving yards or less in four of his past five games, and he's been at five targets or less in three of his past four outings. I would only start Jeudy as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best in Week 11 against the Vikings.

In his past four games against the Jets, Davis has combined for 10 catches for 135 yards and no touchdowns. He's barely a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in most leagues in Week 11.

In three starts with O'Connell (Week 4 at the Chargers, Week 9 against the Giants and Week 10 against the Jets), Meyers has six catches for 92 yards and no touchdowns on 11 targets. O'Connell isn't consistently looking for Meyers, and the Dolphins secondary should prove to be a tough opponent as they get healthy coming off a bye. Davante Adams is worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in this matchup, but I would avoid Meyers if you can until O'Connell starts looking for him on a regular basis.

The Browns got bad news Wednesday when Deshaun Watson (shoulder) was ruled out for the season, and Dorian Thompson-Robinson is now the starter for Week 11 against Pittsburgh. We saw Cooper in one game with Thompson-Robinson in Week 4 against Baltimore, and it was ugly with one catch for 16 yards on six targets. He should perform better than that, and Cooper had seven catches for 90 yards on 10 targets at Pittsburgh in Week 2. But the quarterback downgrade drops Cooper into the No. 3 Fantasy receiver range, and it's hard to call him a must-start option after his first game with Thompson-Robinson this year.

Otton had a big game in Week 9 at Houston with six catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns for 23 PPR points. But he cratered with his production in Week 10 against Tennessee with two catches for 10 yards on three targets, and he should struggle again in Week 11 at San Francisco. The 49ers are No. 4 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and only one tight end has scored a touchdown against San Francisco this season.

Freiermuth is expected to return in Week 11 at Cleveland after being out for the past five games with a hamstring injury. That's good news, but I don't want to start him in his first game back against the Browns. This is a tough matchup, and Freiermuth only had one catch for 2 yards on one target against Cleveland in Week 2. The Browns are also No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and only one tight end has scored a touchdown against Cleveland this season.

Engram has yet to score a touchdown this season, and he's been held to 45 yards or less in four of his past five games. He had a rough outing in Week 10 against San Francisco with four catches for 12 yards on seven targets, and he has a tough matchup in Week 11 against the Titans. Tennessee is No. 2 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and the Titans are the only team yet to allow a tight end to score a touchdown this season, including matchups with David Njoku, Mark Andrews and Kyle Pitts. We'll see if Engram can solve the Titans defense against tight ends, but I would only consider him a low-end starter in PPR in Week 11.

DST to Start

Commanders (vs. NYG)

The Giants offense is a mess right now, and even the Commanders DST should have the chance for a big game. The Giants have allowed at least four sacks in four games in a row and have scored 17 points or less in all but one game this season. Tommy DeVito has three interceptions in the past two games, and the Commanders DST should be considered a top-10 Fantasy option in all leagues.

DST to Sit

Eagles (at KC)

The Eagles DST is not worth starting coming off the bye in Week 10 with a matchup at Kansas City in Week 11. Philadelphia, despite getting at least four sacks in five of the past six games, has only generated three turnovers over that span. And the Eagles have allowed 54 points the past two games against the Commanders and Cowboys. While the Chiefs offense hasn't been as explosive this season, Patrick Mahomes has been sacked just 12 times all year. Kansas City is also averaging 27.8 points per game at home this season.

Ammendola came on for the injured Ka'imi Fairbairn (quadriceps) in Week 10 at Cincinnati and made three field goals and three PATs without missing a kick. Between Fairbairn and Ammendola, the Texans are now No. 3 in most Fantasy points scored by kickers this season, and the duo is 21-of-22 on field foals and 17-of-17 on PATs. The Cardinals have allowed six kickers to make multiple field goals this year, and Ammendola should be considered a No. 1 Fantasy option in all leagues for Week 11.

Despite playing on one of the best offenses in the NFL, Sanders is not a great Fantasy kicker. He only has two games this season with at least 10 Fantasy points and none since Week 3. He's only made three field goals in his past seven games. The Raiders have been feast or famine against opposing kickers as three kickers have made at least three field goals and six have made one or less. Given Sanders' track record, I would look to avoid him in Week 11, even at home.
