I may be tooting my own horn louder than anyone else in the band, but it’s hard not to when you give out four great picks for the third week in a row. I kind of dropped the ball with my Alex Pierce pick, but how could I have foreseen the re-insertion of Matt Ryan into the Colts' offense? If Sam Ehlinger had started that game, Pierce would’ve put up at LEAST five points, and that’s…well, that’s something. 

Here’s how all my picks did last week:

QB: Marcus Mariota, 19 points

QB: Jacoby Brissett, 16 points

RB: Rachaad White, 11 points

RB: Jerick McKinnon, 9 points

WR: Alec Pierce, 0 points

WR: Terrace Marshall Jr, 5 points

I’m going to try and keep these above-average weeks rolling here in week eleven. If you want to ride along with me, you can be sure to take prop bets on any of my sleepers through these New Jersey Online Casinos.


Baker Mayfield (Owned in 3% of leagues)

Before you roll your eyes, I implore you to check out the QBs on the waiver wire this week–it’s tough. However, I think you can get some decent value here with Baker Mayfield, who is back as the Panthers’ starting QB after P.J. Walker suffered an ankle injury in week ten. This will be Mayfield’s first start since week five, and except for his week one performance, none of them were particularly noteworthy. However, Mayfield did fill in for Walker in week nine and came out to throw for 155 yards and 2 TDs. He’ll be leading the Panthers into their week 11 game against the Falcons, who have allowed the 11th most points to opposing QBs all season.

Zach Wilson (Owned in 7% of leagues)

Zach Wilson has thrown for just four touchdowns in his six starts this season. However, he’s poised for a big game this Sunday in New England against the Patriots. The Pats have only given up the 14th most points to opposing QBs all season, but Wilson (who faced the Pats in week 8) attempted 41 passes for 20 completions and 355 yards in his last outing against Belichek. The Jets are about as hot as a team could be right now, winning five of their last six.

Running Backs:

Jerick McKinnon (Owned in 16% of leagues)

We’re running it back! McKinnon didn’t really let me down last week, and I’m expecting him to pull it off again this week against the Chargers in week eleven. Los Angeles has one of the worst run defenses in the entire league, giving up the third most points to opposing running backs all season. McKinnon is still really only a threat in the passing game, but keep your eyes on the crafty RB in Kansas City.

James Cook (Owned in 17% of leagues)

Cook is still waiting for his breakout game, but I think I sniffed it out here. Cook is the definite #2 RB in Buffalo and is taking on the sixth-worst rush defense this week (the Browns). All he needs to do is score a touchdown, and that’s incredibly possible considering the Bills may be dealing with some Josh Allen injury problems. 

Wide Receivers:

Christian Watson (Owned in 11% of leagues)

Watson had a career week in week 10, hauling in 3 TD catches and 107 yards on four catches (eight targets). Aaron Rodgers is the type of guy to keep drilling his favorite wideouts too, and Watson may have cemented a spot as a Rodgers favorite with his week ten performance. In week eleven, the Packers will be taking on the Titans, who have given up the third most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Donovan Peoples-Jones (Owned in 35% of leagues)

DPJ has continued to be one of the most consistent receivers in the league, and has a great opportunity to keep it up this week against the Bills. Peoples-Jones has surpassed 70+ yards in five of his last six games, and has scored 9+ fantasy points in five games so far this season.
