Ray takes a look at some Week 11 sleepers that could help you win your fantasy matchup this week, including Teddy Bridgewater, Frank Gore and others.

This weekly feature will take a look at some sleepers at each position who could help fantasy teams win their weekly matchup. To determine the sleepers, I will be using the fantasy points allowed at each position statistics, courtesy of AsktheCommish.com.

For week 11, I will use the fantasy points allowed this season, so we are getting a good idea as to which team defenses are allowing the most fantasy points at each position.

Teams on bye: Cowboys, Jets, Jaguars, Ravens

Sleeper Performance: Week 10

Quarterback: Mark Sanchez, Eagles vs Panthers - 20-37, 322 yards, 2 TDs

Others:

Carson Palmer, Cardinals vs Rams - 25-36, 241 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT

Russell Wilson, Seahawks vs Giants - 10-17, 172 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT, 14 rushes, 107 yards, 1 TD

Running Back: Bobby Rainey, Buccaneers vs Falcons -  6 rushes, 14 yards, 4 receptions, 42 yards, 0 TDs

Others: Jeremy Hill, Bengals vs Browns - 12 rushes, 55 yards, 1 reception, 6 yards, 0 TDs

Wide Receiver: Roddy White, Falcons vs Buccaneers -  6 receptions, 72 yards, 1 TD

Others: Martavis Bryant, Steelers vs Jets - 4 receptions, 143 yards, 1 TD

Tight End: Charles Clay, Dolphins vs Lions - 7 receptions, 45 yards, 0 TDs

Others: Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs Bills - 2 receptions, 19 yards, 0 TDs

Fantasy Points Allowed: Year to Date

Below you will find a table (courtesy of Ask the Commish) that lists, by team defense, the fantasy points each team defense has allowed to opposing quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.

I have selected my sleeper picks based on the fantasy points allowed through the first ten weeks of the season, assuming the trend (allowing more fantasy points) continues.

Week 11 Sleepers

Quarterback

Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings vs Bears

The Bears defense has allowed 94 points to opposing QBs in their last three games, so Bridgewater is a solid pick to perform well vs the disappointing Bears squad in Week 11. The Bears defense ranks 31st in fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs this season.

Other QBs I like: Colin Kaepernick, 49ers vs Giants

Running Back

Frank Gore vs Giants

The Giants defense was shredded for 350 yards on the ground and 5 rushing touchdowns last week, so I expect Gore and QB Kaepernick to have a good day on the ground on Sunday. After giving up nearly 50 fantasy points to the Seahawks in Week 10, the Giants now rank 30th in fantasy points allowed to RBs this season.

Other RBs I like: Jonathan Stewart, Panthers vs Falcons

Wide Receiver

Roddy White, Falcons vs Panthers

Yeah, I know. White was my WR sleeper last week, but he has another solid matchup in Week 11 vs the Panthers defense that ranks 30th in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers. White rewarded us with 6 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown last week. Here's hoping for a repeat.

Other WRs I like: Pierre Garcon, Redskins vs Buccaneers

Tight End

Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs Seahawks

One of these weeks, Kelce is going to break out. One of these weeks. The Seahawks defense ranks 28th in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends this season. Have I mentioned Kelce is due for a breakout game?

Other TEs I like: Chase Ford, Vikings vs Bears
