Let’s get into Week 11 of fantasy football!

A few notes for Week 11

  • Cleveland vs. Detroit looks like it could showcase a lot of running.
  • Keep an eye on Injuries to Eli Mitchell, Damien Harris, Saquon Barkley, Kareem Hunt and Brandon Bolden
  • Gut feeling tells me New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Arizona and Tampa Bay go run heavy this week.
  • We should see some tandem work with Alvin Kamara / Mark Ingram II, Damien Harris / Brandon Bolden, Nick Chubb / Kareem Hunt and Zach Moss / Devin Singletary

Week 11 Running Back Rankings

Rank Player Team Opponent Notes
Rank Player Team Opponent Notes
1 Christian McCaffrey Car vs Was He's back and healthy, he ven has his old QB back at the helm
2 Alvin Kamara NO @ Phi Questionable - Favorable matchup
3 Jonathan Taylor Ind @ Buf This is not an easy matchup for the best running back in the league right now.
4 Najee Harris Pit @ LAC Najee has 100 rushing yards or a rushing TD in four of his last five games
5 Nick Chubb Cle vs Det He's coming off covid protocol, it shouldn't diminish his play much
6 Dalvin Cook Min vs GB Green Bays defense looked solid last week vs. Seattle
7 Joe Mixon Cin @ LV He has four rushing TDs across his last three games scoring in each one.
8 Ezekiel Elliott Dal @ KC This should be a fun matchup, the rejuvinated Chiefs vs. the dominant Cowboys
9 James Conner Ari @ Sea Conner will do what he does best - score a rushing TD again.
10 Austin Ekeler LAC vs Pit Injuries on the Steelers defense will be the sink or swim for Ekeler.
11 D'Andre Swift Det @ Cle Swift had 33 carries last week vs. Pittsburgh, will he have fatigue this week?
12 James Robinson Jax vs SF Robinsons has 15+ fantasy points in five of the last six games he has played in
13 Myles Gaskin Mia @ NYJ Looking better and better
14 Saquon Barkley NYG @ TB Questionable - Barkley is going to struggle with health through the rest of this season
15 Leonard Fournette TB vs NYG This should be a good matchup for Fournette and the Bucs to rally from 2 straight loses
16 David Montgomery Chi vs Bal Montgomery returned last week to an ok 13 carries for 63 yards, he gets a favorable matchup this week
17 Michael Carter NYJ vs Mia Looking better and better
