Defenses around the NFL are playing as well as they have in years. As a result, we have seen many passing offenses struggle around the league, leading to many questions surrounding your starting fantasy football lineups. That is where we come in, helping you with this Week 11 WR Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em analysis.
Obviously, there are some players who are must-start every single week due to where you drafted them, such as Amon-Ra St. Brown, Stefon Diggs and Ja’Marr Chase. However, the WR2 and WR3 positions are a bit more fluid, causing some tough decisions to be made. To help you through these tough decisions, check out our weekly fantasy football rankings and read on for our Week 11 fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em analysis at WR.
Tight Ends — Week 11 Fantasy Football Start/Sit
Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em: Week 11 WRs
Start: DJ Moore Fantasy Outlook at Lions
All signs are pointing to Justin Fields returning to the Chicago Bears this week, and nobody should be happier than DJ Moore fantasy football owners. We haven’t seen Fields since Week 6. From Weeks 2-6, Moore ranked as the fantasy football WR3 in PPR scoring.
Now, Moore gets his quarterback back in a matchup against the Detroit Lions. The Lions rank in the top half of the league in fantasy points allowed to WRs. On top of that, Detroit’s offense continues to be terrific, so they should put up points against the Bears. This will force Chicago to be more aggressive and throw the ball with Justin Fields, and this has meant incredible things for DJ More this season, making him the feature player in the Week 11 Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em.
Start: Rashee Rice Fantasy Outlook vs Eagles
Coming off of a bye week where Andy Reid was able to implement more plays for the rising rookie, Rashee Rice has a solid matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Clearly, the Chiefs have struggled to get much production from their receivers not named Travis Kelce, but Rice has been one of the very few bright spots for the team.
Rice has totaled over 50 yards in three of his past four games, and he found the end one in his lone game under 50 yards. This week, he faces a Philadelphia Eagles team that surrenders the second-most fantasy points to WRs. Part of the reason for this is that the secondary can be attacked. However, another large reason is that the Eagles put up points and force their opponents to be aggressive as well. This could easily turn into a shootout, which would make Rice even better. Regardless, Rashee Rice should have a solid fantasy football performance.

Sit: Amari Cooper Fantasy Outlook vs Steelers
While Amari Cooper exceeded expectations last week, he no longer has a quarterback throwing him the ball whom he has great chemistry with. Not only that, but there are plenty of reasons to question the arm of Dorian Thompson-Robinson, as shown by his 121-yard output in his first start of the season.
Cooper sees a tough matchup against an improving Pittsburgh Steelers secondary. On top of that, the Steelers will put plenty of pressure on the rookie quarterback who has struggled to throw the ball. It’s tough to be positive here, which is why Cooper is our featured “sit” in our Week 11 Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em.
Sit: Jerry Jeudy Fantasy Outlook vs Vikings
Jerry Jeudy scored his first touchdown of the season, then had a bye week. Many thought he could build upon his momentum last week. While Russell Wilson and the offense looked solid, Jeudy found himself lost on offense more often than not.
At this point, if you have the luxury, Jerry Jeudy should have to earn his way back into your starting lineup. He has caught three or fewer passes in three of his past four games. Jeudy also has just one touchdown and no 100-yard games. He doesn’t possess much of a ceiling, but we’ve seen his floor plenty.
