How will Rob Gronkowski's injury impact Julian Edelman's fantasy outlook?
Week 10 of the fantasy football season certainly finished with a bang didn’t it? I mean could you have asked for anymore production from the running back position? In all honesty Ezekiel Elliot was one of my least favorite players since I faced him in two seasonal leagues and his final two scores late in the fourth quarter put me behind for good.
I know, I know “no one cares about your fantasy team!” but I have to vent somehow right? Fear not I won’t be ranting anymore about this, as we dive into the Week 11 flex rankings.
This week the potent offense of the Falcons will be taking a breather while the red-hot Phillip Rivers and Melvin Gordon also will be taking it easy. The Broncos and Jets round out the Week 11 teams on bye, but there aren’t as many fantasy assets on those two squads.
Either way there are plenty of new storylines including Rob Gronkowski’s latest injury, which will likely keep him from playing in Week 11. This will certainly boost Martellus Bennett’s value for sure this week, but it also could impact guys like Julian Edelman and James White (or maybe Dion Lewis) and perhaps even Chris Hogan or Danny Amendola.
Alshon Jeffery’s suspension is similar in that it immediately increases Cameron Meredith’s fantasy appeal (and maybe Eddie Royal’s too) as well as tight end Zach Miller.
Position-specific observations aside, you can check out the Week 11 flex rankings below if you are trying to decide between a RB or a WR (or a TE depending on your league's setup) to fill that last spot or two in your starting lineup.
Teams on bye: Atlanta, Denver, New York Jets, San Diego
