Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

As we now approach the home stretch before the playoffs, every game matters even more to fantasy football managers looking to maintain their playoff aspirations. We've seen another week of devastating injuries, breakout performances and underwhelming results across the league. With four more teams goodbye for this weekend, the supply of available players is once again scarce. We'll take a look at which players and clashes to take advantage of and which to avoid.

Recap last week

It has been a difficult week that wasted a lot of good games due to inclement weather conditions throughout the league. Tua Tagavailoa finished in the top 15 while Jared Goff and Ryan Tannehill both landed in the QB18-20 lineup. JD McKissic turned out to be a top 20 player and Jerick McKinnon struggled to finish outside the top 36, but Phillip Lindsay had just two rushing yards. Darnell Mooney unfortunately finished outside the top 50 and Jarvis Landry didn't do much in bad weather while Marvin Jones surprisingly managed a top 10 performance. Dallas Goedert had a top 15 day while Jared Cook had indeed a poor performance with a goose egg. With that, we'll start week 11!

Goodbye teams: San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, New York Giants

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11 QB's

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Ben roethlisberger

Steelers vs Jaguars

ESPN Starting Percent: 30.2%

At a position where we've seen some quarterbacks take hot starts before weakening like Russell Wilson for example, Roethlisberger seems to be heating up. He has two straight games for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns as he works with one of the league's top wide receiver lines at Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and Juju Smith-Schuster. He's up against a Jaguars defense in Week 11 that gave up at least 275 yards and two touchdowns to the opposing quarterbacks in three of their last four games. Another encouraging sign is that the Steelers seemed determined to involve their passing game despite a comfortable lead against the Bengals last week. Hopefully we'll see it again as Big Ben enters Week 11 as an eight-to-ten option in QB.

Cam Newton

Patriots vs Ravens

ESPN starting percentage: 14.7%

Despite throwing just 200 yards or more in one of his last three games, Newton has turned a corner by limiting his turnovers and continuing to work in the running game. He's got at least one running touchdown in each of his last three games and has finally thrown his first pass score since Week 3 and is without a turnover in each of his last two games. He has also been precise and completed over 75% of his passes in each of the last two games. Newton's lack of a solid passing cap limits him, but his rapid rise is the second only to Kyler Murray at the quarterback. He's facing a Texan defense that has forced just two interceptions all season and allowed rookie Jake Luton to throw over 300 yards and score a rushing touchdown as well. Newton is one of the top 12 options in week 11.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Jameis Winston

Saints vs Falcons

ESPN Starting Percent: 0.2%

With the recent news that Drew Brees will miss time with several cracked ribs and a collapsed lung, Winston appears to be the next man for the Saints at quarterback. However, Taysom Hill appears in the background as an infrequent substitute nuisance for those who may want to bet on Winston. It's also not the mention that Winston is on a team with one of the best receivers and running backs in the game, but not the weapons he saw in Tampa Bay that allowed him to pass so much. that he did. Winston managed to relieve Brees in Week 10, but didn't push the ball down and almost got an interception. Even in a longer game, Winston isn't someone to trust for Week 11.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11 RB's

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Damien harris

Patriots vs Texans

ESPN starting percentage: 9.2%

Harris has three straight games of at least 14 carries and is averaging five or more yards per carry. He played two 100-plus yards rushing games during that span, including a career-high 121 yards in Week 10 against a tough Ravens defense. Harris established himself as a “poor man's Derrick Henry” as a running back runner with minimal passing involvement (only two receptions over the season). Harris will always be capped because of that and Newton's work on the goal line, but Harris continues to run for plenty of yards and now faces a Texas defense who gave up at least 77 yards and a touchdown to a running back. in each of the latter. four games. This includes Week 10 where Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb ran over 100 yards. Harris will be a low-end RB2 / high-end RB3 at week 11.

Nyheim Hines

Colts vs Packers

ESPN starting percentage: 15.6%

While the Colts' backfield has been a mess to figure out lately, Hines may have parted ways with Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Taylor with his performance at Week 10. Hines ran for 70 yards and a touchdown while scoring 45 receiving yards and another touchdown on 17 touches. He and the Colts now face the Packers in Week 11, who have been one of the most generous defenses for running backs in fantasy football. They've given up five total touchdowns in the last three games and 100 or more rushing yards in two of the last three games to opposing backs. In an attack without many viable wide receivers and tight ends to turn to, Hines may continue to be one of the team's best passing options besides potentially their lead going forward. It's a low-end RB2 with potential in the top 15 at week 11.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Ronald jones

Buccaneers vs rams

ESPN starting percentage: 46.5%

Even after running for 192 yards and a touchdown in Week 10, I'm going to sit here and say Jones isn't a reliable running back to trust fantasy football. He played three straight games for over 100 rushing yards in Weeks 4-6, but went on to add 56 rushing yards in his last three games before the blast in Week 10. Jones' use and production are hard to pin down, especially with Leonard Fournette still in the background and the team's primary receiving option out of the backfield. Now he's up against the Rams, who have given up more than 50 rushing yards just once and two total rushing touchdowns in the last six games against half-opponents. Jones will be hard to compare after his high career performance, but he shouldn't be seen as more than an RB3 / FLEX option and risky on top of that.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11 WR's

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Amari Cooper

Cowboys vs. Vikings

ESPN starting percentage: 15.7%

While it's dangerous to trust the Cowboys attack with Dak Prescott, Andy Dalton represents a major upgrade from recent debutants Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert. In Dalton's lone start to the season, Cooper had seven receptions, 79 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets. Cooper may not be the WR1 in the fantasy like he was when Prescott was under center, but he's a trustworthy WR2 going forward. He's now facing a Vikings defense that has given up 16 receiving touchdowns and nearly 200 receiving yards per game (on average) to wide receivers. It may be a week where we see Cooper sneaking into WR1 territory as a top 15-18.

Jakobi Meyers

Patriots vs Texans

ESPN Starting Percent: 7.5%

Meyers continues to function as the team's number one receiver and is treated very well as such. He has 37 targets in his last four games, including 21 in the last two. He also had a trick play where he connected with Rex Burkhead for a 24-yard touchdown in Week 10. Meyers is now facing a much better game against the Texans who had given up six receiving touchdowns at the during their three previous games (excluding their week. 10 against the Browns where they faced high winds, hail and lightning throughout the afternoon) with two performances of over 140 reception meters. The whole Patriots offense has been playing a lot better lately and they now face a much easier defense than the Ravens last weekend. Meyers will be a high-end WR3 / FLEX option with much more potential in week 11.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Robby anderson

Panthers vs Lions

ESPN starting percentage: 72.1%

After posting 99 or more receiving yards in four of his first five games, Anderson has only hit 75 yards in his last five games once. He also only has one receiving touchdown, which he scored in the season opener. Anderson continues to be heavily targeted with at least eight to three of his last four games, but now he may no longer be starting QB Teddy Bridgewater in Week 11. Plus, he's facing some defense. of the Lions who have given up just 75 yards or more twice in the past five games and only one touchdown receiving wide wide receivers during that time as well. Much like Ronald Jones, Anderson will be tough to sit down, but he cannot be trusted as a risky WR3 / FLEX option in Week 11 if Bridgewater does sit down.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11 TE's

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Logan thomas

Washington football team

ESPN starting percentage: 13.4%

Thomas has been a frequent traveler on this list in 2020 as he continues to post solid numbers but is still vastly underused in fantasy football. He now has six targets in each of his last two games and has at least 60 yards in two of his last three. As the number three option in Washington's passing game, Thomas will continue to be a low-end TE1 option. This is even more the case if we see anywhere near Alex Smith's 55 passing attempts in Week 10. Thomas is now facing a Bengals defense who has given up on the seventh-most receptions, third most receiving yards and tied for the game. the third most touchdowns to receive close ends from opponents this season. Thomas will be in the top eight to ten in Week 11 at the close end.

Start 'Em Sit' Em Week 11

Dallas goedert

Eagles vs Browns

ESPN starting percentage: 32.0%

This is more indicative of the Eagles' porous passing attack than of Goedert's ability. Carson Wentz continues to fight heavily and the entire group of talented Eagles players are suffering, Goedert included. He's had a respectable four receptions and 33 yards on six targets, but he's now facing a Browns defense that has been stingy against tight ends lately. They've given up just over 30 yards receiving twice and a single combined receiving touchdown in the last five games. Goedert will still be considered one of the top 12 options by default, but he should be considered more of one of the top 15 in week 11.


This is a beginners guide to betting, written by a beginner ! You might not know this about me, but whilst Ian is a football betting expert with a long history of placing bets, I am not ! I know the digitale and how to make things on it, but I don’t know a lot about .

I do love this site though, so I wanted to learn more about football betting so that I can better contribute to the conversations on it. I have been researching things for some time and thought I would write them up as a guide to football betting.

You might wonder why I didn’t ask Ian to write this guide, him being the expert, the truth is I thought it would be better coming from someone picking up the ropes. Ian knows so much he might assume you know something you don’t, I don’t know anything so that can’t happen !

These are the two most common way to place bets these days so I wanted to cover them in a little detail. We don’t hide that fact that Ian prefers singles but that doesn’t help you if you don’t know the main differences.

When you bet with an accumulator, all your bets need to win in order for you to be able to claim the money. This makes it much harder to win but oui the reward is far greater. As a new football bettor it is very tempting to bet on accumulators because you could see your £10 stake spiral into big bucks pretty quick.

It is a free courier course that takes sept days to complete and by the end of it you should be a bit of an spécialiste ! Some Football Betting TermsI figured I would start off with some betting terms. Stake – This is the amount of money you place on a bet, in other words the amount of money you stand to lose if you don’t win. Accumulator – A accumulator is a series of single bets grouped together, if each of the bets comes off then the odds accumulate together. Normally when you hear of people putting a fiver on something and winning a couple of thousand it is because of accumulators. Because each bet needs to win though they can be risky. Handicap – This is a bet that is offered when one team is the clear favourite – Think Brazil vs your local old boys team ! The handicap gives a small advantage to the underdog. For example, there may be a one goal head start given to the underdog. I am going to explain Handicapping more later in this article. Half Time/Full Time – This type of bet is split into two, when you predict the winner of the first half then of the entire game. So you could predict a draw at half time but for the home team to win by full time. Banker – This is basically the closet thing to a certainty as you can get, the tipster is very sure that the bet will land if they consider it a banker. For example we give banker tips to our members. Scorecast – This is when you bet on a player to score the first goal along with predicting the correct score. Wincast – Very similar to a scorecast but you bet on a player to score and then predict the winner of the game. 90 Minute Betting – This is mentioned a lot when people bet on individual players ( maybe as goal scorers ) normally if the player doesn’t make an appearance the bet is called off, but if the player appears during the normal 90 minutes of the game they are eligible for the bet. 24 Hour Rule – Most betting websites have a rule like this where if a match is postponed the bet only becomes void if the match doesn’t get played within a 24 hour period. So for example if a match was just put back 2 hours the bet would still stand. Over/Under – Overs and Unders are when you bet on the amount of goals being scored, normally it will be over or under an amount, for example over 2. 5 means if there are 3 or more goals. Under 2. 5 would be 0, 1, or 2 goals being scored. DNB – This stands for Draw No Bet. What this means is if the score is a draw you get your money back for your bet. This can be seen as a safer option but you should understand that the odds are usually lower when this is selected. Double Chance – A Double Chance bet is one where you pick a winner and if they win OR it is a draw, you win the bet. If the team you pick loses then you lose the bet. Like DNB the odds are generally lower but it is a safer bet as a result. Bankroll – how much money you have to bet with. We’ve written more about what the bankroll is. HandicapsHandicaps are something that confused the heck out of me for the longest time, so I want to spend a while looking at them in detail. This is such a common question that I have written up a guide to the Asian and European handicapping. Want to learn how to be an professionnel football bettor for free ? JOIN OUR EMAIL COURSEAccumulators Vs SinglesThese are the two most common way to place bets these days so I wanted to cover them in a little detail. We don’t hide that fact that Ian prefers singles but that doesn’t help you if you don’t know the main differences. When you bet with an accumulator, all your bets need to win in order for you to be able to claim the money. This makes it much harder to win but oui the reward is far greater. As a new bettor it is very tempting to bet on accumulators because you could see your £10 stake spiral into big bucks pretty quick. Singles on the other hand are not effected by other bets. So if I place £10 on three different matches as singles and 2 of them come in, then I make money on those two bets. The odds aren’t as good if I was to role up all my bets into an accumulator, but the odds of me walking away with some money are much higher.

The main advice here is to find what it right for you. Just because some people swear by accumulators and others swear by singles doesn’t mean you should listen to the loudest voice. Do some research, maybe put some small stakes on a few different ways and see what felt good and what had a good return on your investment.

Getting your way with the bookiesSomething you will encounter when you start betting is a range of different online and offline bookmakers. All will have their own way of dealing with things and all will want you to work with them differently. This can seem daunting but we’ve written up a guide on what to look out for and how to state your case if you think a bookmaker has wronged you.

There are two things I have caught myself doing related to being greedy, the first is adding extra teams into an accumulator just because it will bump up my maximum payout. This is almost always a terrible idea ! The second thing I have done is bet more money on a team than I initially was going to. You should have a plan for how much you are going to bet and stick to it.

You are not going to win every bet, if you want to become successful at betting on you need to be patient and pick the right bets for you. Never bet more than you can afford to loseBefore I place a bet I always think about the money I am going to be placing on it and think, if I were to lose this money right now would I be OK with that. If the answer is no I won’t place the bet.

They are too unpredictable, you don’t know how much effort the respective teams are putting in and reserve players may get an outing that you weren’t counting on. If the friendlies are before the start of a new season ( they often are ) players will be very aware to not pick up any injuries so might not play as hard as they normally do.

What I mean by this is that two teams can look a certain way on paper, but if one of those teams has already won the league and the other is fighting to stay in the league there is a very good chance that the team good on paper will be on auto pilot whilst the team playing to stay out of relegation is going to be fighting for their life !

If ever there was a post to comment on with your questions this would be it ! The only stupid question is the one not asked. We’re also really keen on hearing where we can improve this article, so if you still have questions or something wasn’t clear, it was because we’ve done a bad job and we would love you to tell us how to do better. If you’re hungry for more, I can highly recommend our free fax course.

Unfortunately a lot of money is wasted because people place bets without really knowing too much about what they are doing. If you know someone like that please feel free to share this with them. The social media share links are below if you’d like to share on Facebook etc.
