Chris Thomas’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 11

Adam Thielen

This year more than ever it has been difficult to make decisions about fantasy football lineups because of injuries, byes, and Covid-19 concerns. This week fantasy starters like Allen Robinson, Stefon Diggs, and Brandon Aiyuk have byes. It could be difficult to decide who is best streamer to replace one of them in your lineup. Your roster could also have two wide receivers with similar value. Deciding between the two could be the difference between winning and losing this week.

With so little time left during the fantasy football regular season every game that’s left is more important than the last to guarantee yourself a spot in your leagues fantasy football playoffs. Here are my wide receiver rankings for Week 11 of the 2020 NFL Season

 

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Key:
Must Start- a player who is in your lineup regardless of the matchup or most circumstances. Will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and in most weeks.
Starting WR1- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup this player has a high floor.
High WR2- a player who may isn’t likely to carry a lineup that week, but has the ability to have a breakout game and is teetering between WR1 and WR2 category.
Starting WR2- a player who should be started in most lineups and should reach their point projection. This player is started is because of their consistency and moderately high floor
Low WR2- a player who may not be a lock to start for a team every week, but will start more times than not. Their production may not be pretty or win a person their lineup but the production is consistent enough to make a fantasy owner comfortable starting them.
Flex- a player who could float around the territory of being benched, but is started due to potential to play better than their point projection. However this player has the potential to flop and cause a fantasy team to lose if he has a bad game.
Deeper League Flex- a player who has starting value in deeper leagues. There are enough reasons to leave this player on the bench, but their upside makes them an attractive option. Desperate times may call for a player like this to be inserted into starting lineups.
Upside Player- a player who is boom or bust. This player can exceed expectations in a given week or could flop and be the reason why someone lost their fantasy matchup.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday

WR7 Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons wideout Calvin Ridley missed Week 9 due to a mid foot sprain. He had the bye in Week 10 to rest and now could return now in Week 11. The Falcons offense doesn’t look the same without their two wideouts. If Ridley was to miss Week 11 Russell Gage would become WR43 on the week between Jalen Reagor and Julian Edleman. In the deepest of leagues Olamide Zaccheaus becomes WR53 and a potential last resort flex option. But in standard leagues I look for other options besides Zaccheaus.

WR10 Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks

Something that’s been flying under radar this week is that Tyler Lockett missed practice on Monday and Tuesday. He is currently listed as questionable and is expected to play. But at this point Lockett owners have the right to be concerned and should pay attention to his status until game time. If he is unable to suit up David Moore becomes a flex option in standard leagues at WR35 on the week.

Carolina Panthers Wide Receivers: WR13 Robby Anderson, WR30 D.J. Moore, and WR38 Curtis Samuel

There is a chance that Teddy Bridgewater misses this week because of a knee injury he suffered last week. If he misses time and P.J. Walker starts, that could result in a major drop off on production from the Panthers wide receivers. Robby Anderson would drop to WR26 between Chase Claypool and Robert Woods. D.J. Moore would retain most of his value since he is utilized for underneath routes and would be WR22 between Justin Jefferson and Travis Fulgham. Finally Curtis Samuel would drop to WR50 between Greg Ward and Henry Ruggs.

Detroit Lions Wide Receivers: WR17 Kenny Golladay and WR52 Marvin Jones

Not only is there a possibility that Matthew Stafford misses this week, but also Kenny Golladay’s status for the Lions game against Carolina is uncertain. If Stafford misses and Golladay is healthy he becomes WR27 between Robert Woods and A.J. Brown for the week and Marvin Jones becomes WR59 between Hunter Renfrow and Keelan Cole. While if both Stafford and Golladay were to miss, Jones would be WR55 on the week between Breshad Perriman and Corey Davis. Golladay is a solid starting option in most leagues if available and Jones should be left on the bench due to his inconsistent production.

WR43 Julian Edleman, New England Patriots

Despite making it past his third week on IR, Julian Edleman has not been activated yet. However with three days until Sunday, there is a slight chance that Edleman is activated and could play this week. Despite a good matchup shouldn’t be started in standard formats because of lack of practice. Also if he was to miss this week it would only just strengthen Jakobi Meyers case and could boost him up to a potential WR2 status.

WR53 Allen Lazard, Green Bay Packers

After scoring 26.4 points Week 3 Allen Lazard was placed on injured reserve because of a core surgery he had shortly afterwards. But with Lazards return looming he may be a late season spark in fantasy lineups. Before he got hurt he looked like the Packers true number two receiver and may be the reason the team didn’t feel comfortable trading for Will Fuller. If he were to return on IR this week against Indianapolis he would be an interesting boom or bust player. However if he were to miss this week as well Marquez Valdes Scantling would have similar value as Lazard in a tough matchup against the Colts as WR53.
