As the playoffs draw closer and you’re trying to find some confidence in your fantasy lineup, Kings Court and I are here to help. From now until the end of the season, we will go head-to-head in a fantasy football point style by picking our top QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, and a FLEX every week. Feel free to play along! Comment your picks below and see if you can beat the experts. Let’s take a look at who we’ve got in Week 11.
Kings Court- Alex Smith. I picked Smith because he’s going against a Giants team who has basically given up. They have a lot of linebackers out this week, and I imagine Smith sitting back in the pocket throwing bombs to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill all day.
Sports Thoughts- Tom Brady. While Brady is never the type to get you any points on the ground, he’s heading to Mexico for an old-fashioned shootout against Oakland. I’m expecting 4 touchdowns against their weak secondary.
KC- Jay Ajayi. After being traded to the Eagles, Ajayi is yet to break out like we’re used to seeing on the Dolphins. Playing against a Dallas team who has lost many players in their secondary, a couple of big runs for Ajayi could equal a big day.
KC- Kareem Hunt. Not very original, I know, but going against the Giants, look to see Kareem Hunt with a lot of receiving yards this week. Don’t get me wrong, he’ll rush well against them too, but some passes out of the backfield will be a large sum of his points this week.
ST- Todd Gurley II. The Rams are up against a stout “No Fly Zone” in Minnesota, so Gurley is going to get a lot of touches. Depending on how L.A. wants to balance their play calls, I don’t think the Vikings are ready to contain one of the best backs in the league. Lock him in for 100+ yards and a score.
ST- Melvin Gordon. Gordon is one of my favorite backs in the league and he has been on fire this year. He is going against a Bills defensive line that allowed 21, 30, and 60 points to running backs over the past 3 weeks. At that rate, Gordon is about to put up 110 or so. Hold on tight.
KC- Tyreek Hill. Hill will break out this week 100%. Like Smith and Hunt, he’s going against one of the worst defenses ever, and with his speed, just a couple of breakaways could create a 175+ yard day.
KC- Brandin Cooks. As a Raiders fan, I’ve seen firsthand that we have one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Our corners get beat all day long, and when you get a guy as fast as Brandin Cooks, we’re going to be in deep trouble in Mexico. Plus Tom Brady isn’t too bad either.
ST- Julio Jones. Probably the best receiver playing on Sunday, Jones should have a field day against the ailing Seahawks. He only has 1 touchdown this year, but he piles on yards every week, and with Seattle’s secondary in shambles, Jones is poised to have his best game of the season.
ST- Michael Crabtree. Now it gets tough, but I’m going with Crabtree because he is a touchdown machine. In a shootout against the Pats, that is never a bad thing. New England’s defense has buckled down as of late, but the chemistry between Derek Carr and Crabtree is undeniable.
KC- Zach Ertz. Ertz has been a touchdown catching machine this year, and I don’t see that stopping today. Up against a struggling Dallas team, look for Ertz to be found in the end zone multiple times coming off an injury last week.
ST- Tevin Coleman. I’m going with a 3rd running back for my flex, so if you’re in a PPR, this might not be a good idea. However, Devonta Freeman is out for Atlanta so a talented Coleman will be getting the bulk of the carries. If you’re unfamiliar with his talents, he normally splits carries with one of the best RBs in the league, so I expect him to have a truly breakout game this Sunday.
