The last of the big bye weeks are over with as we enter Week 11 of the fantasy football season. There are still teams that have yet to get a breather (four this week), but from here out the player pool will be larger than it has the past two weeks, which is a good thing for fantasy owners.
After a week off, Tom Brady is back as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback for Week 10. He faces Seattle, which is coming off of a short week, and the Seahawks have done a good job against QBs (fifth-fewest fantasy points allowed).
San Francisco has scored more than 20 points four times so far this year, which is why the 49ers have been a popular target when it comes to choosing a defense/special teams (DST) option in fantasy. They have allowed opposing DSTs to score plenty of fantasy points (fifth most in the league), and this week’s opponent is Arizona.
Justin Tucker and Caleb Sturgis, both with eight games played, are in the top five in terms of fantasy points (depending on league scoring) among kickers. Tucker still has yet to miss a field goal or an extra point, and he is the top-ranked kicker for Week 10.
Wide receiver mania is back for Week 10 of the fantasy football season. All of the big dawgs are back in action (with a few exceptions) and once again many have drawn dream matchups. Antonio Brown sits atop with another week of what is hopefully a healthier, rust-shaken Ben Roethlisberger.
The tight end position might be the most frustrating off all for fantasy owners this season because you never know what you are going to get week-to-week. Of course, Rob Gronkowski is ranked No. 1, but it’s not out of the question that he catches three passes for 27 yards this week against the Seahawks.
We are onto Week 11 of the college fantasy football season and playoffs are either starting this week or are right around the corner for you so it is crucial that your lineup is set up properly heading into the weekend.
Even with six teams on bye liming the player pool for Week 9, there were still some big performances that left their mark from a fantasy standpoint, especially in the DFS realm. It all got started in a big way on Thursday night with Atlanta and Tampa Bay combining for 71 points and more than 850 yards of offense.
