Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 11

When it comes to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 11, look no further than the Sunday night matchup. The Colts play host to the Patriots in prime time and Andrew Luck vs. Tom Brady won’t be the only fantasy positional pairing to keep an eye on. Stephen Gostkowski and Adam Vinatieri are currently first and second in fantasy points among kickers, with the former maintaining a 13-point lead. Gostkowski is No. 1 in both field goal makes (24) and attempts (25), while Vinatieri has yet to miss (20-of 20 on FGs, 32-of-32 on PATs).

Jacksonville doesn’t play this week, so for once the Jaguars don’t factor into Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 11. Instead, our top billing goes to Miami, the DST that has scored the most fantasy points (76, Athlon scoring) over the last four weeks.

With both big bye weeks a distant memory, the upper tier of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 11 looks a lot like many expected it would entering this season. An argument could be made when it comes to the first two spots, but no TE has been hotter than Rob Gronkowski.

Jordy Nelson hauled in two long touchdowns against the Bears last week

Calvin Johnson may not be No. 1 on Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 11, but he’s not that far off either. After missing three games with an ankle injury, Megatron was back to his old tricks last week, hauling in seven passes for 113 yards and a touchdown in Detroit’s win over Miami.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 11

Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes in the first half against Chicago last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 11

Aaron Rodgers needed just one half to put up the most fantasy points last week, so it’s only fitting that he lead off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 11. Rodgers tossed six touchdown passes against a helpless (and some might say hapless) Chicago defense in the first half, and now has his sights set on keeping pace with Philadelphia’s up-tempo offense.
