Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 11

Darnell has been Mooney in the bank for fantasy managers lately.

We start off the Week 11 fantasy wide receiver rankings to let you know that love of money can ruin your life. But what is definitely less detrimental is the love of Mooney. And it might even be beneficial.

Because there is no player I like more than the Expert Consensus Rankings this week than Darnell Mooney. Here's why I'm looney for Mooney.

For starters, he is going up against the Atlanta Falcons this week. No team has given up more fantasy points to WRs this season than the Dirty Birds. And by quite a large margin. Pittsburgh is 31st among all teams at 387 points, which is well behind Atlanta's 445. That's more than a 10 percent difference, which more than makes up for the difference in weeks played. Simply put, the Atlanta defense is Mother Teresa-generous when it comes to fantasy points and opposing WRs.

Not that Mooney is some slouch. In his last eight games, Mooney is averaging 13.5 yards per reception, which puts him in the top 30 WRs. With Chase Claypool along for the ride to take away double teams and the continued ascendancy of Justin Fields, expect Mooney's production to continue to rise.

See below for other WRs I like this week.
