2021 Fantasy Football: 5 Bold Predictions for NFL Week 11

Could Tua serve as a streaming option this week?

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

How are we at Week 11 already?!? Be sure to check out all the content from Week 11 so far, and circle back around on Sunday morning for an update on tight end rankings!

1.) Tua Tagovailoa (@ NYJ) is a top 10 quarterback.

Justification: The Jets allowed two of the last three quarterbacks they faced to throw for three scores. Tua was showing strong versus Atlanta and Jacksonville (also weak against the pass) before a bad game and a finger injury derailed him a bit.

2.) Tyreek Hill (vs DAL) finishes outside the top 10 wide receivers.

Justification: Patrick Mahomes seems to have found his step again and while I think this could be an epic matchup, the Cowboys secondary has really stepped up as of late. They have keep the last three opponents in check through the air, not allowing any 100-yard games and limiting the touchdowns to single among the wide receivers.

3.) Cole Kmet (22% rostered) is a top 10 tight end.

Justification: Facing the Ravens (who are generous to opposing tight ends) Kmet has at least six targets in each of the last three games, netting 40+ yards in two of them. He has yet to find the end zone, but the Ravens have allowed six scores to opposing tight ends through nine weeks.

4.) Josh Jacobs (vs CIN) is a top 10 running back.

Justification: The Bengals rush defense has allowed a total of five rushing touchdowns across the last four games. This is where Jacobs thrives, and I think he gets into the end zone with about 80 rushing yards in this matchup.

5.) Detroit vs. Cleveland over/under is 43.5. Give me the over at 46 points.

Justification: Both teams drastically underachieved given the opportunity last week. After a week of doing sprints and getting yelled at, I think we see two offenses primed to do something, anything. I’m expecting D’Andre Swift and Nick Chubb to have solid games, as well as TJ Hockenson and Jarvis Landry on the receiving end of things.
