4 Star Free Agents - Week 11

Week 11 Byes: Atlanta, Denver, New York Jets, San Diego
 

Quarterbacks: 

Colin Kaepernick (SFO) Since getting the starting job he's been averaging about 235 yards per game and adds on a nice rushing bump as well. He does throw picks but also touchdowns. The Patriots Defense is very average in stopping QBs in a fantasy sense this year, so the matchup is actually quite good, when you consider the Patriots offense will have their way with the Niners, and garbage time will be considerable.

Joe Flacco (BAL) I'm sticking with him as another nice pick up for the second week in a row. Dallas is not Cleveland in terms of matchup but he did put together a very nice game and has ten days to prepare. There is talent around him, and it should show itself again this week.

Running Backs: 

CJ Prosise (SEA) This is obviously the major pickup of the week, and I wish I had recommended him last week. Both Michael and Rawls are owned more in every league, but that changes. The rookie looks pretty good, and his pass catching ability is certainly there. The easy #1 pick of the week given his availability and position. Starting RB in Week 11? Yes, please.

Rob Kelley (WAS) Another Week 11 running back starter that has bubbled to the top in recent weeks. In two games he has 184 rushing yards and a touchdown. Add in a nice matchup against the reeling Green Bay Packers and he is another easy add if he is available in your league. ESPN 45% Yahoo 48% NFL 14% 

James Starks (GBP) His touches weren't all that numerous, but the Ty Montgomery experiment seems to be flailing, and Starks did end up out snapping him by over 2 to 1. Moving forward, Starks appears to be the guy, and is – yet again – another starting running back in week 11, although the clear third best option. ESPN 29% Yahoo 19% NFL 29%
 

Wide Receivers: 

Cameron Meredith (CHI) He was a solid pick a few weeks back, and now with Jeffery's suspension he really has a chance to shine again. Yes, his high point was with Hoyer under center, but Cutler can't throw (rimshot) everything to Eddie Royal. This is the other wide out he will have to go to. ESPN 20% Yahoo 33% NFL 8% 

Tyreek Hill (TBB) Alex Smith, the king of the screen pass, has found the Prince of the Screen pass: with Maclin out, Hill found himself with 10 receptions on 13 targets for 89 yards. That is PPR gold right there folks, and a respectable stat line for a WR2 or flex position. Keep an eye on Maclin, but given his leaving the game early last week, his injury does not bode well for this week. ESPN 10% Yahoo 17% NFL 12% 

Robert Woods (BUF) Speaking of an impressive 10 receptions on 13 targets, Woods put that stat line up in week 9 against Seattle before Buffalo had their bye. Don't sleep on this guy. It's clear the receiving corps is thin in Buffalo, and he's the most stable option for Tyrod Taylor. ESPN 17% Yahoo 17% NFL 1% 

 

Tight Ends: 

Eric Ebron (DET) He lacks touchdowns on the year but had two nice yardage games heading into Detroit's bye last week. His overall numbers on the year are low in large part because he was hurt for 3 games. He has the talent and a quarterback who throws to him consistently when he's on the field.

Defense: 

Pittsburgh Steelers This unit has seen a surge in production in recent week after opening the season as a real clunker. Yes, the Cowboys just housed them with two rookies, but that's only going to poke the bear and they go to Cleveland this week to take a bite out of them. This is a matchup that should be exploited.
