Michael Thomas has ascended to the top of the WR rankings and should be in line for another big game
As we enter Week 11 of the fantasy football season, it's time to recognize the new No. 1 among wide receivers. Michael Thomas sits atop the rankings safely at this point. Odell Beckham Jr., DeAndre Hopkins, Adam Thielen, Tyreek Hill and Antonio Brown are next in line, but it's hard to argue against Thomas. He has another appetizing matchup this week against the scuffling Eagles at home.
Thielen is back from bye and he should have his tag-team partner back in Stefon Diggs. Both are in good spots and seem to feed off of the other. Week 9 was Thielen's first in which he didn't finish with at least 100 receiving yards and that was without Diggs alongside him.
Even with six teams on bye, the impact to the wide receiver rankings isn't that significant. The biggest names that will be missed are probably Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman and Jarvis Landry (in some order). If anything that means there are arguably more tough decisions that need to be made depending on your options. And now is certainly not the point of the season where you want to make the wrong choice for your lineup.
With the fantasy playoffs just around the corner, having a great bench means nothing. Get that starting lineup ready for battle!
As always be sure to check back closer to Sunday for any last-minute tweaks to these rankings.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Cleveland, Miami, New England, New York Jets, San Francisco
