Fantasy Football: Week 11 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Picks And Busts

November 14, 2017
Some Notes:

• Only three running backs rushed for more than 100 yards in Week 10 and two of them play for the New Orleans Saints (Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara). I know it was cold this weekend, but come on now.

• Green Bay Packers running backs Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery both left their Week 10 game with injuries. Jones seems like the worse of the two, as he is expected to miss three-to-six weeks with a MCL sprain. Back up Jamaal Williams will be a popular pickup this week. 

• Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller could miss Week 11 with a rib injury. 

• Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman left his team's Week 10 game in the first quarter with concussion symptoms and will likely miss Week 11. 

• Washington Redskins running back Robert Kelley left Week 10 with a high ankle sprain and will miss a few weeks. 

• Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns will miss Week 11 with an ankle injury

• Fantasy rule to live by: start any tight end who plays the Cleveland Browns or New York Giants. 

• Week 11 byes: Carolina, Indianapolis, New York Jets, San Francisco (this is the last week for byes)

• You can drop: Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls, all Denver Broncos running backs, Redskins running back Robert Kelley, Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Eric Decker, Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, Packers running back Aaron Jones

• "Thursday Night Football:" Tennessee at Pittsburgh

• "Monday Night Football:"Atlanta at Seattle
