Which under the radar players will prove to be helpful this week? Let’s take a look at this week’s Raider Ramble edition of Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 11.
Fantasy Football Sleepers: Raider Ramble Week 11 Edition
Week 10 Recap
Overall, it was a pretty decent week. Jared Goff didn’t produce enough and finished as QB20. Jeff Wilson was stellar, scoring 22.30 points. George Pickens was decent, finishing the week at WR26. Greg Dulcich was the biggest bust, securing just one reception for 11 yards. And the Cardinals defense was in a three-way tie for seventh place among DSTs.
*Disclaimer, all stats are gathered from NFL and NFL Fantasy websites.
QB Daniel Jones vs DET
Daniel Jones’ passing totals are lacking, as he ranks 24th in passing yards and touchdowns. However, his strength comes from his legs, where he ranks fourth in rushing yards and fifth in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks. This week, he’ll be going against a Lions defense that is in the bottom five in quarterback rushing yards and touchdowns allowed. Detroit’s defense has always been weak throughout the season, allowing the most points to quarterbacks. Jones will likely have to run the ball more often anyway with temperatures at MetLife Stadium reaching 37 degrees and 15–25 mph winds.
RB Brian Robinson @ HOU
The rookie running back has gained some popularity in recent weeks. Brian Robinson has been given 17 or more carries in three of the six games he’s played so far. In those games, Robinson has scored no less than 10.60 points. Now, he’ll get to play against the worst run defense in the league. There’s no doubt that Robinson will get plenty of touches, especially coming off a game where the running game played a large factor in Washington’s upset victory last week.
WR Kadarius Toney @ LAC
With JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman confirmed to miss time, Kadarius Toney will have an increased role. Toney took advantage of his opportunity last week and turned in a 19-point performance. The Chargers’ defense allows the 12th-fewest points to wide receivers, but Toney should still see a healthy volume of touches to turn in a quality fantasy performance. This game should be high-scoring, so the ball will be flying plenty.
TE Foster Moreau @ DEN
Foster Moreau is coming off his best game of the season so far. He scored 13.30 points and was one defended pass away from going over 20. The Broncos’ defense is in the middle of the pack against tight ends, but Moreau should still see targets. With the weather in Denver likely to be unfriendly, Derek Carr will likely look for shorter options, which is where Moreau can gain more points.
DST Washington Commanders @ HOU
The Commanders’ defense is ranked 15th, with 14.7% rostered, and has a low score projection this week. However, they are facing the Texans, who allow the eighth-most points to defensive units. Washington is also coming off a game where they held the then-undefeated Eagles to 21 points, forced four turnovers, and scored a touchdown. The Texans’ offense might be a bit pesky at times, but the ceiling for what Washington’s defense can do deserves some consideration.
